His deep interest in Philosophy and Theology became evident to Ayatollah Ja'far Sobhani upon which Ayatollah Lankarani recommended one of the dean at University of Tehran to enroll Nabi Mir into the Philosophy department. Hence Nabi Mir studied both at Hawza of Qom as well as University of Tehran in parallel and received his PhD in Philosophy and Theology from the University of Tehran.
