Arbaeen great divine convention for all religions, nations/Imam Hussein (a.s.) belongs to all humanity: Ayatollah Ramazani

Arbaeen great divine convention for all religions, nations/Imam Hussein (a.s.) belongs to all humanity: Ayatollah Ramazani

The opening ceremony of Arbaeen Hosseini’s official activities in Latin America was held on Sunday morning, September 19, 2021, with the speech of the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

While offering his condolences for the days of mourning for Imam Hussain (a.s.) and Arbaeen, and appreciating the establishment of the Arbaeen headquarters in Latin America, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani said, “I appreciate you for starting a valuable work and forming a headquarters called Arbaeen with the slogan “Service and Hope”.”

“I hope that by using the capacity set in Latin America, the members of Arbaeen headquarters will be able to get to know each other better and provide a platform for interaction, understanding, and synergy,” he said, expressing hope that the activity of Arbaeen headquarters should be seriously and actively pursued throughout the year.

 “Arbaeen should be considered as the largest convention of Muslims. Imam Hussain (a.s.) belongs to all nations and all religions. He is the teacher and educator of the freedmen. There are important lessons of seeking justice, confronting authoritarianism and oppression, enjoining the good and forbidding the evil in the teachings of Imam Hussain (a.s.),” emphasized the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.

“Imam Hussain (a.s.) belongs not only to the Shiites, but to all Muslims; he belongs not only to Muslims, but to all followers of the Abrahamic religions, and also he belongs not only to all followers of the Abrahamic religions, but to all human beings, and this is a global and international capacity,” continued Ayatollah Ramazani.

“Understanding this capacity is very important and should be studied and researched, and once the capacities are properly understood, we will be able to understand this event more comprehensively and accurately,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the various dimensions of Arbaeen Hosseini.

“Ashura and what happened up to Arbaeen (forty days after the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and his companions in Karbala) in the year 61 AH, shows the most emotional truth. There can be no more emotional flow and movement than Ashura and Arbaeen. These feelings and emotions have been passed down from generation to generation,” he clarified, considering emotional capacity as one of the Arbaeen capacities.

“During 1400 years, the uprising of Sayyid al-Shuhada (a.s.) has created a great internal transformation and revolution; a large number of people gather in (Iraq) to pay their tribute (to Imam Hussein (a.s.) and his family and companions) and spend their lives and property to keep Ashura and Arbaeen alive. This great glory increases year by year in the Arbaeen ceremony,” Ayatollah Ramazani added.

Referring to the pandemic of the evil Covid-19 virus, which has outbroken the world, and deprived many people of the opportunity to participate in the Arbaeen Walk, the member of the Assembly of Leadership Experts expressed, “May God Almighty remove this calamity from human society so that Muslims and non-Muslims with a population of 20 million and more can participate in Arbaeen Walk.”

“We can see high spirituality during the Arbaeen Walk in Najaf and Karbala. Worship, mentioning the sufferings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), prayers, paying attention to the ideals of Imam Hussain (a.s.), the teachings of Ashura, and many other issues are quite evident in Arbaeen Walk. You can see the most beautiful service in Arbaeen,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the spiritual aspect as another achievement of the Arbaeen movement.

Considering the high hope for the best kind of life and tasting justice and the elimination of the oppression of wealth, force and hypocrisy colonialism, as lessons from the Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (a.s.), Ayatollah Ramazani said, “The intellectual and structural atmosphere of society must believe in this hope.”

Referring to the phrase, “بَذَلَ مُهْجَتَهُ فِيكَ لِيَسْتَنْقِذَ عِبَادَكَ مِنَ الْجَهَالَةِ وَ حَيْرَةِ الضَّلالَةِ” ((O’God) He (Imam Hussein (a.s.)) sacrificed his life in your way, to save your servants from ignorance and wandering misguidance) from the Arbaeen pilgrimage letter, Ayatollah Ramazani added, “Imam Hussein (a.s.) sacrificed the blood of his heart in the way of God and saved the people from ignorance. The Arbaeen pilgrimage letter reads: “Some authoritarians, worldly and ambitious people stood up the best of human beings. They behead the “Imam of the society” and the “Guardian of God” and put it on the spear. Less than 30 years after the demise of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), the enemies placed the silent Quran on a spear (referring to the Battle of Siffin between Muawiyah and Imam Ali (a.s.)), and 50 years later, they put the “speaking Quran” (Imam Hussain (a.s.)) on a spear.” All of these events were due to the ignorance of the society.”

“Arbaeen bestowed awakening and multidimensional awareness to human society: awakening in the emotional, spiritual, cultural and political dimensions,” Ayatollah Ramazani said, referring to the spiritual, justice, cultural and political aspects of Arbaeen.

“From the mourning ceremonies for Imam Hussein (a.s.) and Arbaeen, one should learn the lessons of monotheism, seeking justice, and confronting authoritarianism. In his analysis of the Husseini movement, Imam Khomeini (r.a.) said, “Weeping for Imam Hussein (a.s.) should have a political and reformist aspect”,” he said.

“If today’s human society reach the spirit of Ashura and Arbaeen, the ground for the growth of the individual, family, and society will be provided,” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.)  World Assembly.

“Unfortunately, we are facing news boycott of Arbaeen, and some media outlets fail to cover the spirituality, love, self-sacrifice, and affection of the Arbaeen Hosseini March,” said Ayatollah Ramazani considering Arbaeen as a great divine convention of all religions and nations.

“Introduce Arbaeen and Ashura thinking to the people, and consider Arbaeen as great because this movement can be a great global event,” said the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts, addressing the organizers of the Arbaeen headquarters in Latin America, while appreciating them.

Following the ceremony, referring to the appointed activities of the headquarters, Soheil Assad, the secretary of the Arbaeen headquarters in Latin America, announced the release of the Arbaeen pilgrimage software with Spanish and French translations, which was prepared for the first time. He also announced, “For the first time, on Arbaeen Hosseini Day the Arbaeen pilgrimage letter will be recited online, simultaneously throughout the Latin American region.”

The next part of the opening ceremony of the special activities dedicated to Arbaeen in Latin America was describing the activities and actions of Islamic centers throughout this region by the officials of Islamic centers. In this meeting, the officials of the Islamic centers of countries such as Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, etc., briefly explained the activities of their center.

The responsibilities of the Arbaeen International Headquarters in the Latin American region are planning and coordination between countries, content production, regional and trans-regional support, special planning, and coordination with the holy shrines.

Also, some of the activities and programs of the Arbaeen International Headquarters in Latin America are: Publication of two new books in Latin American countries on the subject of Ashura and Arbaeen, holding street processions, launching a motorcade caravan, holding a national and coordinated Arbaeen pilgrimage throughout Latin America, holding ceremonies in Islamic centers and mosques, publishing a magazine for children on the subject of Arbaeen and Muharram, and production of Arbaeen pilgrimage software.

The meeting, which was held on Sunday morning, September 19, 2021, Tehran time, ended with mourning and praising for AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the recourse in AhlulBayt (a.s.) by activists and Latin American Muslims.

In Ghadir, scientific, spiritual, political authority of Ummah introduced: Ayatollah Ramazani

In Ghadir, scientific, spiritual, political authority of Ummah introduced: Ayatollah Ramazani

During his visit to Russia, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, met Shiite missionaries active in the country.

“We, the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), have subjects that no other religion has,” he said at the meeting which was held in Moscow on Sunday, August 1, 2021. “Infallible Imams (a.s.) - from Imam Ali (a.s.) to Hazrat Mahdi (a.s.) - were comprehensive personalities and had comprehensive attributes.”

Recognizing the opportunity to introduce the Infallible Imams (a.s.) as a “golden opportunity”, Ayatollah Ramazani noted, “In the world, missionaries of no other religion have such an opportunity and such figures to introduce, the nobles who, according to everyone, had scientific and also spiritual authority.”

“Of course, we Shiites believe that the AhlulBayt (a.s.) also have political authority. That is, all Muslims believe in the “scientific and spiritual authority” of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), and we believe in their “scientific, spiritual and political authority” too,” added the former head of the “European Union of Shiite Scholars and Theologians”.

“The al-Ghadir Event happened in order to introduce a figure for the scientific, spiritual, and political authority of the Ummah. Therefore, the best person was introduced. But what was expected did not happen,” he emphasized, commemorating Eid al- Ghadir, Eid of Wilayah, and Imamate.

“Imam Hussein (a.s.) is not just a role model for Shiites, and while Shiites can follow his example in the best way, this infallible Imam is a role model for all Muslims. Because Imam Hussein (a.s.) came to revive the Sunnah of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) because at that time the Sunnah of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) had been destroyed and heresies had been revived. Therefore, Imam Hussein (a.s.) came to revive the Sunnah,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Imam Hussein (a.s.) said, “I invite you to Allah.” Allah is the axis of unity among all followers of religions. Imam Hussein (a.s.) is a model for all followers of religions and all humanity. At a meeting in the Islamic Center of Vienna, a Christian couple came to the center and because they got familiar with the Imam, they said that Imam Hussein (a.s.) is their Imam too,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, considering Imam Hussein (a.s.) as a model for the followers of all religions.

“Sheikh Zakzaky is a righteous figure and he has gathered everyone around him, and we hope that his leadership will continue. During Arbaeen, large crowds attend Arbaeen ceremonies in Nigeria. On the Day of Ashura, large gatherings are held in South Africa, European countries, and the United States. We have to deal with these issues very precisely,” he continued.

“In introducing the event of Ashura, the truth of this event must be stated. It must also be stated why this happened; How after 30 years, the silent Quran was placed on spears (referring to the Battle of Siffin) and after 50 years, the speaking Quran went on the spear (referring to the Battle of Karbala and martyrdom of Imam Hussain). Adaptation is our other task in this regard,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“We should follow the example of Ashura. The Ashura movement revived al-Ghadir’s interpretation of Islam. If it were not for the Event of al-Ghadir, there would be no correct image of Islam. In the case of the Event of al-Ghadir, the pilgrimage letter of Imam Hadi (as) should be read carefully. This pilgrimage letter is one of the political pilgrimage letters,” he continued.

“When Imam Ali was introduced in this event, the infidels were disappointed. Because a righteous successor was introduced who would maintain the religion. The head is one of the main parts of the body and if it is not, the body cannot do anything. Imamate is also the main part of religion. In the verse “الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ” (This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you) (Quran, Surah: Al-Ma’idah, Verse: 3), the word “أَكْمَلْتُ” (I perfected) is used when there is a defect, and “أَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي” (completed My favor) refers to the spirit of Islam. The spirit of Islam is the Imamate. Islam is not without soul,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the Event of al-Ghadir.

“The spirit of Imamate exists in religion (of Islam), and before Imam Ali (a.s.), the Prophet (PBUH) was both Imam and Wali. The Event of al-Ghadir provided an accurate understanding of Islam, and this understanding was manifested in Ashura. In the sense that if Yazid rules, Islam is over. There is a lot to talk about Ashura,” he continued.

“We must be up-to-date and not be content with academic degrees. Clerics must become acquainted with Orthodox Christianity in order to engage in dialogue. Of course, dialogue is for interaction, not confrontation. Shiite culture has the capacity to interact with others,” added the former head of the “European Union of Shiite Scholars and Theologians”.

“Personally, despite my busy schedule, I take time to study every day. Because people expect us to be up to date. The Supreme Leader of the Revolution (Ayatollah Khamenei) also studies a lot. I once gave him several books as gifts, one of which I had given before. He quickly told me, “You had given me this book before”.” Ayatollah Ramazani added.

“A cleric must have scientific and spiritual greatness, and it is achieved through the acquisition of religious knowledge and authority in religion. In this regard, participation in scientific workshops is essential. The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) had spiritual greatness and when his manners were perfected, God told him that he had “great morals”,” he said, considering the daily study of the clergy necessary.

“We must be up to date in every area, including propagation, and cultural and economic activities. Today is different from yesterday. We have made a lot of progress so far and with unity and solidarity, we can definitely go further. Imam Musa al-Sadr said in a speech in Qom in 1961 that Christianity is the first in propagation, planning, and organizing, followed by the Sunnis, and finally the Shiites. But Shiites are not the first in terms of organization. However, the report on the activities of Shiite communities and organizations shows that we have grown a lot in this field. Of course, these organizations and communities must be formed under the laws of the host countries, and they must operate under these laws,” continued the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“I suggest that a study be done on the endowment foundation and with the establishment of this foundation, it should support the centers and the Shiites in various sectors, including the construction of the mosque and the Hosseiniyahs. In some countries, there are endowment foundations. In my opinion, work can be done to establish this foundation in other countries as well,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the need to establish the endowment foundations.

“It is necessary for Islamic missionaries and centers to do collective works. For example, during my time at the Islamic Center of Hamburg, in collaboration with other centers, I organized a Quranic competition between European countries. Another important point is manpower training and staffing. Just as you missionaries are the trained forces to promote the culture of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), you must also train the manpower and hold training workshops. The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly has established a university for master's and doctoral degrees where Shiites from other countries can study. The Assembly also has actual capacities in sections such as books,” he continued.

“We must identify the existing capacities in the world and direct them. We do not make impossible promises, and we must do the necessary research before making any promises,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, considering the scope of activities of the assembly as worldwide.

“I suggest that the establishment of Islamic schools in Russia be considered. These schools have already been established in countries such as Germany, France, and England. Of course, given the many facilities required, establishing a university is difficult and a dream, but we should not be disappointed. During my time at the Islamic Center of Hamburg, I established a seminary where students from different European countries study,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the need to establish Islamic schools in different countries of the world.

“Sincerity is one of the divine secrets, and one of the duties of missionaries is to have sincerity,” he continued.

“We do not invite people to convert to Shia, but we introduce Shia and AhlulBayt (a.s.), because, proper introduction of Shia automatically causes the hearts to turn to the family of the Prophet (p.b.u.h),” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“We must introduce the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and in this regard, virtual channels must be taken seriously. Whether we like it or not, we have to cross the real space to cyberspace. In addition to face-to-face Minbars (pulpits, figurative word for preaching sessions), we should have virtual pulpits with thousands of people as the audience. There are now more than five billion people in cyberspace, and we should not ignore it,” he stated.

“We believe in unity among Muslims and we must experience a peaceful life. Many Muslims have been killed in the world, and we should not allow other Muslims to be killed. The Sources of Emulation emphasize the unity between Shiites and Sunnis. Extremism is another issue, and even Sunnis oppose ISIL,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the need for Islamic unity.

“There is no extremism in our culture. Also, Russia’s view of the Shiites is that there is no extremism. In Germany and many other countries, they concluded that the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) is not a school of extremism. AhlulBayt (a.s.) must be introduced correctly,” continued the Secretary-General of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“There are more than 300 million Russian speakers in the world today, many of whom have questions or doubts about the Shiite school. Therefore, it is necessary to observe doubts in this language,” he clarified.

“The spread of Shiite ceremonies in Russia is divine grace. All (Shiite) preachers in this country are the ambassadors of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) who correctly introduce Islam,” he concluded in the end.

At the beginning of the meeting, a report on cultural activities in Russia was presented. Expressing satisfaction with that report, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “One can feel the satisfaction smile of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) from these activities. May God accept with His mercy these valuable deeds that the loved ones did sincerely. It should be said that “May God reward you”.

Secretary-General of ABWA to German youth: Inform people about “Modern Slavery” & “Postcolonialism”

Secretary-General of ABWA to German youth: Inform people about “Modern Slavery” & “Postcolonialism”

On the occasion of the birth of Imam Ali Akbar (a.s.) and Youth Day, the webinar meeting “Youth, AhlulBayt (a.s.), modern Islamic civilization” was held by the Office for International Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly with the cooperation of German Muslim youth.


Organized in line with the series of programs for the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, in this webinar meeting, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, the Secretary-General of the Assembly, Dr. Yavuz Özgüz, and Maher Faqih, prominent professors of the German Muslim community, delivered their speech at the meeting.




“Today, young Muslims must be rational, thoughtful, spiritualistic, responsible, and just; And wherever he is present, he should have these characteristics and introduce the truth of Islam with his behavior,” emphasized the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in his speech.


“Young people must be aware of the social, cultural, and political challenges facing human society, such as oppression, poverty, discrimination, and injustice. They need to know that many children and adolescents today suffer from malnutrition. Modern slavery is used in various ways. In “Postcolonialism”, the West seeks to deceive people with beautiful words,” he added.


The full text of the speech of the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Ayatollah Ramazani, in this webinar which was held on the evening of Wednesday, March 24, 2021, is as follows:




I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Satan

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


I am very happy to say these few words on these great days. I offer my congratulations to all of you brothers and sisters, and I hope that God Almighty will grant Tawfiq to all of us to enjoy the spiritual atmosphere of this noble month (Sha’ban) and we should not neglect the supplication of Sha’baniya, so that, God willing, we pave the way for enjoying the month of Ramadan, the Ghadr Nights, Eid al-Fitr, and InshaAllah we receive the spiritual reward that God has set for us.


It is very important for those who live in places like yours, especially the younger generation, to pay attention to their duties.


There is a lot of discussion about young people. It is even emphasized in the Hadiths that you must pay serious attention to the younger generation. Imam Ali (a.s.) wrote in a letter to Imam Hassan (a.s.), “Because of the set of experiences I had, I gathered everything that was necessary and gave it to you so that you can use it the past experiences. Also, before you run into any problems, I overtook you in the discipline. Because before the mind becomes confused and scattered, it is very important to organize it.


How young Muslim life in today’s world and what s/he pays attention to, are important points that I would like to mention in this short time.


Certainly, in a world where different ideas, such as humanism, liberalism, and absolute human freedom, are presented and the results are nothing but vulgarity and debauchery, we must define for ourselves a precise logic in life and define how to live. That is, basically, what should we mean by life and happiness and what we expect of it.


Today’s world often seeks to lead the younger generation to superficiality in order to educate them based on sentiments. That is, s/he pays attention to appearances and in fact, they do not want her/him to know other dimensions of her/his existence to flourish.


Therefore, we must have logic in our lives and follow the path that we have determined based on the school and religion of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in a goal-oriented way. The school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) presents this view to us precisely so that we can pay attention to the set of capacities that are given to human beings and all dimensions, including the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and social dimensions, and consequently all dimensions to be known.


Today, young Muslims must be rational, thoughtful, spiritualistic, responsible, and just; And wherever they are present, they should have these characteristics and introduce the truth of Islam with their behavior.


I would like to make a few points about what a young Muslim should do according to this logic. Of course, it is also possible for a person to realize this logic in himself and own this behavior.


In describing his son, Hazrat Ali Akbar, Imam Hussein (a.s.) said, “أشبه النّاس خَلقاً و خُلقاً و منطقاً برسول الله”. The man may not be like the Prophet in terms of creation and appearance (خَلقاً), but in morality (خُلقاً و منطقاً) one can emulate the Prophet; of course, everyone as much as his capacity. If a person has good morals, he can reach perfection with this spirituality. This requires self-knowledge and self-awareness. When a person knows his potential, he will try to flourish it.


One of the tasks that the younger generation seems to have to consider is self-awareness for guidance. Today, the kind of attitudes that are presented in human societies, lead to a kind of anonymity, bewilderment, and confusion that leads to depression, heartbreak which is a threat to human society and the younger generation. Therefore, one must acquire the correct self-awareness, self-belief, and self-knowledge along with his set of capacities in order for self-awareness to provide the ground for identity recognition.


The path of humans must be the path of thought and reason. Feelings and emotions must also be under the control of reason and thought, otherwise they may go to extremes and later cause regret. As Imam Ali (a.s.) said, “There is no worship like thinking.” Thinking is valuable worship that guides man and gives him a perspective on life that is important.


Studying science is another task of young Muslims today. They must be at the forefront of the scientific field and be prominent in various contemporary disciplines needed by human society.


Another point is that one should pay attention to morality, be spiritual, not superficial. Because the West calls mankind to superficiality. But in the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.), spirituality is important, that is, paying attention to the meaning and concept of life and its truth.


Young people need to pay attention to social, cultural, and political challenges, and what is happening in the human world today, such as problems, oppression, poverty, discrimination, and injustice. For example, many adolescents and children suffer from malnutrition. Young people need to know about modern slavery. They need to know how the West seeks to employ today's human society. In Postcolonialism, the West seeks to deceive people with beautiful words.


We need to know that these are beautiful words and concepts, but in fact, they are all kind of challenging human beings.


We must pursue demands, especially in the field of justice, on the world stage. If there is authoritarianism, tyranny, and exploitation, which really exists in today's human society, introduce it to others wherever it exists to prevent the continued colonization of humanity and today's generation. The worst kind of colonization is intellectual and moral colonization.


If the path of human life deviates in terms of thought and morality, he or she has lost life and will have no logic for it. Such people, the maximum that can imagine for themselves, is enjoying in this world. If a person seeks only this superficial pleasure of the world, the way he looks and interacts with people will be very different from a person who has a faithful view of the origin and resurrection.


Certainly, a faith view of the origin and resurrection causes one to have an afterlife view, and the (material) “world” becomes his means and tools. Such a person becomes goal-oriented and seeks it and tries to reach it and make a serious move in that direction; a movement based on science, thought, faith, and spirituality that will definitely lead him to his destination.


I hope that we will become more familiar with the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) day by day. I hope that the young generation, in particular, will come to a true knowledge of themselves in order to use the will and authority that God Almighty has placed in them to achieve great goals. After that, serve and help human beings and help the young generation and teenagers to know the way and the destination. This is the help that the divine prophets were concerned about. In human societies, part of this task is the responsibility of the younger generation.


When young people know and find themselves, they can have a worthy presence in various fields.


Good Luck

Peace be upon you
