On Saturday, February 19, 2022, in the building of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in Qom, Hojat al-Islam Sayed Shemshad Hossein Razavi, head of the Schengen Imami Scholars Organization, met with Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the Assembly.
In this meeting, Ayatollah Ramazani stated, “Hojat al-Islam Razavi is one of the educated people in the school of Imam Khomeini and the Supreme Leader. Together with his children and family in Europe, he works hard for the school and followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and they have many efforts and activities. He has dedicated himself to serving the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) and I appreciate his efforts.”
“The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly considers itself obliged to help and support the centers and missionaries in Europe as much as possible,” he continued.
“Wherever the culture of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is known, it finds enthusiasts and interested. ‘If people know the merits of our words, they will follow us’. The prayer of Imam Reza (a.s.) includes you. Because he said, ‘May God have mercy on the God’s servant who revive our commands’. Reviving the commands of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is to keep their Maaref alive and promote them,” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the need for a correct understanding of the school of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).
“The Iranian people complain about some problems, but they are really committed to the line of Imam Khomeini and the revolution. In the glorious presence of different segments of the people in the Bahman 22 march this year, we all witnessed their commitment to the values of the Islamic Revolution,” he said, in another part of his speech.
“We are very hopeful for the future. Pressures against the revolution are natural. Because Islamic Iran has great ideals and is doing a great job. If there were no problems in the Abi Talib Valley (3-year sanctions on Muslims by infidels) in the beginning of Islam, Muslims would not have matured,” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.
“The Assembly continues its activities vigorously. The fields of study of AhlulBayt (a.s.) International University have increased from 9 to 15 fields, and the enrollment of nationalities and students in it has increased. There are also 4 fields of study in the doctoral program. Thaqalayn TV, with 18 million viewers, follows its activities. Wiki Shia is also active in more than 10 languages with 25,000 scientific entries. ABNA News Agency also operates in 25 languages. The AhlulBayt World Assembly is associated with many missionaries around the world,” he said about the activities of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
“We must spread the logic of the Imams (a.s.) all over the world. We have no worries about the future, and we hope that the Islamic Revolution of Iran will be connected to the Revolution of Imam Mahdi (a.s.),” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in the end.
At the beginning of the meeting, while presenting a report on the activities of the Center for Islamic Tawhid in Norway, Hojat al-Islam Sayed Shemshad Hossein Razavi, head of the Schengen Imami Scholars Organization, mentioned the holding religious ceremonies and i'tikaaf, translation of Islamic books, publication of magazines and books for different age groups, and provision of religious services at the center.
Some of the concerns of Hojat al-Islam Razavi, who informed the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly about, were the need for the presence of clerics familiar with propagation in international arena in Norway, the need to solve the problems of Islamic centers, and the support of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly from Shiite missionaries in Europe.
