In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“Those who do wrong will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned!” (The Holy Quran, 26:227)


The evil hands of the Takfiri terrorists were once again stained with the blood of the oppressed and Muslim people of Pakistan.


The crime of the terrorist-takfiri group “DAESH” in the Machhi coal mine in Balochistan province in the beheading and martyrdom of 11 oppressed and innocent Hazara miners, wounded the hearts of free people, especially the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) in all parts of the world and angered them about this horrible crime.


Condemning this terrorist and inhumane act and expressing sympathy with the bereaved families of the martyrs of this painful incident and wishing them patience and reward, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly calls on all international organizations, especially the United Nations, to fulfill their legal and international duties to prevent such criminal incidents and to take the fight against terrorism seriously.


The assembly insists that the organizations must also be aware of the fact that the danger of this extremist and criminal group will affect all of humanity, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, and they must take practical and preventive measures to counter them.


The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly considers it necessary to appreciate the Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi who, with his instructive message, broke the deadlock created for the burial of the martyrs; and thanks the stance of Pakistani scholars in support of the verdict of the Shiite source of emulation.


The Assembly praised the action of the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr. Imran Khan, in acknowledging the oppression of the Hazare Shiites of this country and also the visit to Quetta and the consolation of the families of the martyrs and while appreciating him and other Pakistani government, military and security officials, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly calls on them to take special measures to identify and punish the perpetrators of this crime and prevent such incidents from happening.


In the end, we offer our condolences to the bereaved families for this great tragedy, and wish them patience and reward, and the highest degrees for their dear martyrs.

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message of condolences on demise of Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message of condolences on demise of Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi

Ayatollah “Reza Ramazani” issued a message of condolence after the demise of the former chairman of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, a member of the Assembly of Leadership Experts and a member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom, Ayatollah Allameh “Mohammad Taqi Mesbah Yazdi”.


In his message, Ayatollah Ramazani considered the Allameh Mesbah’s demise a great loss, and referring to his services, wrote, “Writing and compilation of more than one hundred precious works in various fields of Islamic knowledge including Tafsir, Hadith, beliefs, Fiqh, Philosophy, Law, Ethics and Politics many of which have been translated to various languages, as well as publishing numerous academic and research magazines under his authority will be remnants of this scholar thinker’s righteousness and like shining lights, illuminate the path of the seekers of knowledge and wisdom.”


Ayatollah Ramazani added, “But perhaps the greatest success of that prominent Islamic thinker could be  the “the training of several religious and revolutionary generations”, the activity he began before the Islamic Revolution at the Institute “Dar Rah-e Hagh” (“In the Righteousness Path” Institute in Qom) and addressed children and adolescents in an era of corrupt imperial culture; and after the Revolution, he followed these activities in “Baqir al-Uloom Cultural Foundation”, “Office of Cooperation between Seminaries and Universities” and then “Imam Khomeini Education and Research Institute”. The result of these activities has been the training of a dynamic human capital of revolutionary scholars and thinkers as well as committed managers who have filled various academic and practical gaps in seminaries and universities and are responding to various needs in the executive systems and military forces.”


The text of the message is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Allah, (SwT) said in Holy Quran, “Those truly fear Allah, among His Servants, who have knowledge: for Allah is Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving.” (Holy Quran: Sura Fatir:28)


The demise of Mujahid jurist and teacher of ethics and morality “Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Mohammad Taqi Mesbah Yazdi” aggravated the suffering of the loss of a large number of scholars in the recent period.


Throughout his blessed life, this polymath scholar of theoretical and traditional studies, spread has spread the teachings of the Thaqalayn (AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the Quran) in various ways and developed the intellectual foundations of the Islamic Revolution and provided unparalleled services – whether when secretly published religious publications during the oppressive period of Shah, or when from Minbar taught the divine theology and ethics, or when he stood in defense of the Islamic Republic and Velayat-e-Faqih without fear of the cowardly attack of the opposition.


Writing and compilation of more than one hundred precious works in various fields of Islamic knowledge including Tafsir, Hadith, beliefs, Fiqh, Philosophy, Law, Ethics and Politics many of which have been translated to various languages, as well as publishing numerous academic and research magazines under his authority will be remnants of this scholar thinker’s righteousness and like shining lights, illuminate the path of the seekers of knowledge and wisdom.


But perhaps the greatest success of that prominent Islamic thinker could be  the “the training of several religious and revolutionary generations”, the activity he began before the Islamic Revolution at the Institute “Dar Rah-e Hagh” (“In the Righteousness Path” Institute in Qom) and addressed children and adolescents in an era of corrupt imperial culture; and after the Revolution, he followed these activities in “Baqir al-Uloom Cultural Foundation”, “Office of Cooperation between Seminaries and Universities” and then “Imam Khomeini Education and Research Institute”. The result of these activities has been the training of a dynamic human capital of revolutionary scholars and thinkers as well as committed managers who have filled various academic and practical gaps in seminaries and universities and are responding to various needs in the executive systems and military forces.


He was also one of active members of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly which chaired the council for fifteen years and during the period of consolidation and development the assembly, played a key role in directing its activities to promote the intellectual and cultural status of the world’s Shiites.


Attention and recourse simultaneous with knowledge and love towards the AhlulBayt (a.s.), especially the Imam Mahdi (a.s.), will be a great spiritual reserve for him in the Hereafter.


I offer my condolences on this irreparable loss to Imam Mahdi (a.s.) as well as to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the Sources of Emulation, seminary and university academic centers, his students and enthusiasts - especially his reverend son-in-law and our dear brother, member of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Hujat al-Islam Mohammadi Araqi, and also to his virtuous and honorable wife and children of the noble Islamic thinker.


I ask God, the Almighty, for this pious thinker the higher position in heaven, to unite his soul with the AhlulBayt (a.s.); and grant patience to all family members.


“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran 2:156)

Statement of Ahlulbayt (AS) World Assembly over arrest of Allamah

Statement of Ahlulbayt (AS) World Assembly over arrest of Allamah "Sayyid Hashem al-Shakhs" by Saudi regime

 

The Ahlulbayt (AS) World Assembly issued a statement condemning the arrest of Saudi Shiite cleric Allama "Sayyid Hashim al-Shakhs" by the Saudi regime's security forces.


The full text of the message is as follow:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Once again, the Islamic and Arab world is witnessing the indecent assault on the ulama and religious scholars of the Arabian Peninsula who call for peace and Islam. Among the most recent cases, the Saudi security forces have brutally arrested the renowned jurist scholar His Eminence, Sayyid Hashem Al-Shakhs, without any warrant or even legal justification what so ever. This cruel and barbaric act of the Saudi regime clearly reflects its vicious and merciless violations against scholars and people of Qatif and Al-Ahsa areas.


The arrest of His Eminence Al-Shakhs by the Saudi security forces comes as a continuation of the sequential scenes of arrests and detainments that started targeting religious scholars in general; scholars who pursue their divine, legal, and humanitarian roles in society like leading group and Friday prayers and teaching and promoting the rulings of the honorable Prophet’s religion. Along the same line, two other eminent scholars, namely, Sayyid Khodr Al-Awami and Sheikh Abbas Al-Saeed had previously been detained on the 11th of November, through a horrific storming operation that transgressed not only all limits of Sharia Law but also violated the most basic local and international moral norms. Ironically, these criminal acts were perpetrated by rulers of Saudi Family who pretend to be advocating Islam, peace and democracy in the world and international societies.


AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly condemns and denounces these illegal arrests and immoral harassments that the religious scholars of Arabia are getting subject to, and demands the House of Saud to release His Eminence Al-Shakhs immediately within the framework of international laws and in order to achieve true democracy in the country. We also call upon the international community as well as International and local human rights organizations to play their expected role and fulfill their moral and humanitarian duties in accordance with the requirements of the international law and the United Nations’ charter of human rights, and truly commit themselves to the principles stated therein. We urge them to push the Saudi regime and demand an immediate release of all prisoners and scholars including His Eminence Sayyid Hashim Al-Shakhs. These organizations are reminded that indifference and turning blind eyes to such crimes contradicts the very basic principles that they have been established for, and above all, certainly causes history to place a shameful and eternal stigma on their foreheads.


“And indeed the ultimate and final conclusion belongs to the righteous”

AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly deplored massacre of Oppressed Nigerian Women and Farmers

AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly deplored massacre of Oppressed Nigerian Women and Farmers

In statement, AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly deplored killing of the condemned Nigerian women and farmers by Boko Haram terrorist group.


The text of the statement is as follows:


Once again, we learned of the brutal massacre of the oppressed Nigerian women and farmers by the inauspicious Boko Haram terrorist group, and it caused great sorrow for everyone.


The barbaric and inhuman act of Boko Haram cannot be justified by any logic and reason, and it hurts the heart of every human being, regardless of religion.


By creating terrorist groups al-Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS, Boko Haram and the like, the arrogant Western states, led by the terrorist government of the United States and the criminal Zionist regime, aim to spread anything but discord among the followers of the Devine Prophets, especially Muslims, and to tarnish the luminous image of original Muhammadan Islam.


Is it possible for a free man to be informed of the killing, beating and hostage-taking of dozens of people and not to have his heart wounded and his eyes weeping?


For what guilt these Christian children and youth were oppressed and criminalized?


Condemning this crime and brutal massacre, and expressing sympathy with the families of the oppressed, AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly call on all free people in the world, zealous youngsters, women and men, not to remain silent in the face of these inhumane acts and by all possible means, inform the people of the world to steer clear and confront this crime and inhuman carnage.


“Those who do wrong will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned!” (Holy Quran 26:227)


AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly


On Saturday, November 28, 2020, at least 110 farmers and fishermen were massacred by the Boko Haram terrorist group in the village of Khoshubeh near the northeastern Nigerian town of Maiduguri.

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message of condolence on demise of Ayatollah Jafar Al-Hadi

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message of condolence on demise of Ayatollah Jafar Al-Hadi

In a message, Secretary General of Ahl al-Bayt World Assembly, Ayatollah Ramazani, offered his condolences on demise of the prominent Prof. of the Qom seminary, Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Mohammad Jafar Khoshnevis (Jafar al-Hadi).


The text of the message is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


The demise of the precious scholar, author who loves AhlulBayt (a.s.), tireless promoter of the teachings of the Quran and AhlulBayt (a.s.), the father of a martyr, Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Mohammad Jafar Khoshnevis (Jafar al-Hadi) multiplied our grief - that we have recently mourned the loss of many great people.


The unique researcher spent many years researching, writing, and translating in important Islamic fields such as the sciences of the Quran and Hadith, beliefs, sects, denominations, history, law, and Islamic governance, and left valuable works.


As a person who did not limit himself to geographical borders, he carried out his religious mission in different continents and countries of the world and from the Hosseini Minbars and whenever he had the opportunity, he propagated true knowledge through national and foreign audio-visual media, or through newspapers and magazines.


AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly has translated several numbers of valuable works of this prominent author and published them around the world. An example of which is the short but important and effective book “Al-Haqiqa Kama Hai” (The truth, as it is.), which has been translated and distributed in nearly 30 languages in the Assembly, and has also become a source of visual products for introducing and defending Shiism.


Membership in the faculty and book council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, as well as teaching in seminaries and universities, directing the Specialized Center of Hadith Sciences and scientific cooperation with various educational and research centers were other parts of the brilliant record of this great scholar.


On this irreparable loss, I offer my condolences to the Imam Mahdi (a.s.), the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Khamenei, the sources of emulations - especially Grand Ayatollah Sobhani who has lost a capable colleague - the seminaries of Iran and Iraq, scientific and academic societies, his friends, companions and students and also esteemed families of Khoshnevis, Tabasi and PourAmini.


I ask God to unite his soul with AhlulBayt (a.s.) and grant patience to his family, especially his esteemed wife and children.

As a member of the faculty of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly and then the Book Council of the Assembly, the late Jafar al-Hadi, a specialist in various Islamic sciences - such as jurisprudence, hadith, beliefs, theology and religions, performed many services and wrote valuable works.

 

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message over martyrdom of Dr. Fakhrizadeh

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message over martyrdom of Dr. Fakhrizadeh

In a message, Secretary General of AhlulBayt World Assembly, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani offered his condolences and also congratulated on the martyrdom of Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, an Iranian nuclear and defense scientist.


The text of the Message is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


“Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah: of them some have completed their vow (to the extreme), and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least” (Holy Quran, Surah al-Ahzab Verse 23)


The terrorist attack of the criminal agents of the global arrogance and martyrdom of Dr. Haj Mohsn Fakhrizadeh, a prominent nuclear scientist and serving mujahed of the Islamic Iran, has affected and saddened Iranians and Muslims around the world, but also free the people from every nationality and religion.


The vicious act, which took place on the anniversary of the martyrdom of another nuclear martyr (Martyr Majid Shahriari) and around the first anniversary of the martyrdom of the glorious resistance commanders Hajj Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, was reminiscent of the cowardly crime of the American terrorist regime at Baghdad airport.


This kind of the state and purposeful terrorism, violates not only all human rights but also all of international law respected by humanity. The disgrace of the commanders and the agents of this crime increases when the world knows that the unclean hands of the enemies of the knowledge took the life of a scientist who struggled to alleviate human suffering, and his latest achievement was a “diagnostic kit” and a “vaccine” to cure Pandemic virus of the Covid-19.


I, as the Secretary-General of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Organization, to which hundreds of elites from various countries are members, declare that we must stand up to terrorism in every possible mean and cure this virus, which is more dangerous than Covid-19. To cure it and put an end to these crimes, it is necessary for religious scholars, human rights activists, knowledge enthusiasts, media that have not sold carriers and are still striving to achieve truth and freedom, civil society organizations for human values, and all those for whom the fate of the world matters, by whatever means at their disposal, to confront the masterminds and the main perpetrators of this crime.


Sooner or later, the silence of influential people and the passivity of human rights organizations will make terrorism rampant all over the world, as had happened before, in addition to Iran, about the figures and scientists of countries such as Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon and Palestine.


In this regard, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is ready to establish any kind of bilateral or multilateral cooperation with non-governmental organizations and individuals and legal entities.


In the end, I congratulate and also offer my condolences on the martyrdom of this hardworking thinker to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei, the activists in nuclear and defense science and industry, his colleagues and students, and especially his patient wife and dear children.


I pray to God for that dear martyr high position in heaven, companionship with his Imam, Imam Hussein (a.s.), patience for his family, and healing for the injured in that terrorist incident.


Oh God, grant us success in martyrdom in your path, and make us join the righteous.

In a message, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani expressed his condolences on the demise of the Supreme Leader's representative for European and American students' affairs.


The message of the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


"We will surely test you until We ascertain those of you who wage jihad and those who are steadfast" (Holy Quran 47:31)


In these sad days when the news of the loss of loved ones comes one after another, the death of Mujahid scholar, valuable scientist, and brother of a martyr, Dr. Hojat al-Islam Eje'I caused great grief.


Hojat al-Islam Eje'I, the student of the seminary and university spent his prolific life in scientific and practical endeavors and devoted himself to serving the science and education of young people seeking knowledge.


The important activities and responsibilities of the deceased, such as activities in the field of Islamic student associations in Europe, Exceptional Talents Schools in Iran, the affairs of young talents and Iranian scientific medalists in the world, sympathetic pursuit of the problems of immigrant students and representation of the Supreme Leader in European and American student affairs, although less public, are the basis of the great scientific and technological progress in the glorious life of Iran after the Islamic Revolution.


On the loss of this sincere and eminent person, I offer my condolences to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the seminary and university communities, the two esteemed Eje'i and Beheshti families, his students and friends, his colleagues in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and especially to his wife and children, and I ask God for mercy for the deceased and patience for his family.


We also pray to God, the Almighty, and ask Him to remove this evil virus from the Islamic Ummah, and the whole human society; And gather that sincere servant with His dear martyrs.
