“Wiki Shia” important means to promote, propagate culture of AhlulBayt (a.s.): Ayatollah Ramazani

“Wiki Shia” important means to promote, propagate culture of AhlulBayt (a.s.): Ayatollah Ramazani

Wednesday, 17 March 2021

The official and administrators of the Wiki Shia encyclopedia met the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.


“Writing Wiki, is a skill and it is an essential need in today’s cyberspace. Wiki Shia is an important tool for promoting the culture of AhlulBayt (a.s.). What is written in the Shiite wiki is up to date and this is the strength of the wiki articles. The wiki has a daily connection with the audience and this connection can be increased,” stated Ayatollah “Reza Ramazani” in this meeting, appreciating the efforts of the Wiki Shia encyclopedia collection and the efforts of Hojat al-Islam Ahmadi Tabar, the Deputy Secretary General.


“The policies of the Wiki Shia have been said to the Vice President of the Assembly for implementation. Therefore, in order to improve the quality of the work of the Wiki Shia, a policy council should be formed,” he added.


“Upgrading the quality of Wiki Shia staffs and researchers is a priority. Also, the Wiki Shia must interact with institutions such as the al-Mustafa International University, and provide them with the results of their activities. Graduates of Al-Mustafa Society should learn wiki writing skills by holding training courses,” added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that there should be more close communication and interaction between the scholars of the Wiki Shia and the forces of the Assembly.


“A full report should be provided on the reasons for the decrease and increase in visits to the Wiki Shia in order to plan to strengthen the strengths and compensate for the weaknesses. The good news is that reputable centers use Wiki Shia articles. This shows the knowledge authority of the Wiki Shia which should be strengthened and increased,” he also stated.


“It is important to maintain and update articles. Therefore, it is necessary to spend money for this purpose. On the other hand, although we are facing financial problems, the budget of the Wiki Shia has increased for the next year, and this is a sign of the Assembly's concern for this section,” continued Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the need to produce podcasts of Wiki Shia.


“The different parts of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly must have an international approach, and in this regard, we must use local staff.  The use of local staff avoids many problems of translation and comprehension. Because other languages have their own literature. The Assembly’s translation section can also use Wiki Shia articles,” he stressed, stating that attention to local language and literature is a priority.


“In Persian, articles may be required in detail, but not in other languages. In each language, the entries must be translated according to the needs and requirements of the audience of that language. Special attention should be paid to the Russian language in the Wiki Shia. Because the Russian language conditions are special and 400 million people in the world speak Russian. There is a readiness to conquer thoughts in this language and present the best idea,” said the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“The International Deputy of the Assembly is associated with researchers from other countries, and this capacity should be used,” he pointed to the need to contact the International Deputy of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, emphasizing the need to solve the hardware problems of the Wiki Shia. 

Accurate, comprehensive interpretation of man with logic of reason, nature is provided by divine attitude: Ayatollah Ramazani

Accurate, comprehensive interpretation of man with logic of reason, nature is provided by divine attitude: Ayatollah Ramazani

Tuesday, 16 March 2021

On Monday, March 15, 2021, the managing director and editorial board of Rasa News Agency met the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in Qom.


In this meeting, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani appreciated the efforts of Rasa News Agency and emphasized updating and developing the software part of the activities.


Accurate, comprehensive interpretation of man with the logic of reason, nature is provided by divine attitude


“We must introduce the virtues of theology, rationality, spirituality, justice, and resistance in the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) to the world community. We do not intend for the world to become Shiite, but we must introduce the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) to the world correctly and in all aspects, and this causes the world to turn to the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.),” he said about the method of propagating the school of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), saying that the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is the link between the sources of emulation and the Velayat with the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) of the world.


“Today, in the world community, there is someone who conquers the field, who has something to say according to human needs in future human issues. There are two materialist and divine views in the world, and the divine view offers an accurate and comprehensive interpretation of man with the logic of reason and nature,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


The world is impressed by the Islamic Revolution of Iran

“The Islamic Revolution of Iran was a phenomenon in the world. It never occurred to some that a revolution would take place in Iran. For them, gradual reform was possible, not revolution. The revolution took place when the world community was out of its way. The world was affected by the Islamic Revolution of Iran in terms of software and hardware and changed the attitude of some Western scientists. Global attitudes toward religion and spirituality changed, and the materialist view normalized,” he also said.


“The Islamic Revolution of Iran is based on the three pillars of Islam, leadership, and people. In the field of Islam, we must show our ability and power. Some said that Islam did not have the power of revolution and government. But Imam Khomeini (r.a.) said that this power exists in Islam and Imam Khamenei has continued the same approach. The leadership of the system must be self-taught and have reached justice in order to bring human society to justice. The presence of the people in the international arena is significant and increases the security of the system,” added the professor of the highest levels of the seminary of Qom, pointing out that it is our duty to explain the discourse of the Islamic Revolution.


In introducing Islam, the language of nature and the Qur'an should be considered

“In the world, there is Umayyad, American and DAESH Islam. The media play a key role in teaching such an Islam, and the enemies use propaganda tools to portray the face of Islam as DESH Islam. But the original Islam is a current that is opposed to this Islam, that is based on rationality, spirituality, justice and resistance and is against authoritarianism. We must comprehensively explain Islam and present it to the world based on the individual and social dimensions of man. The late Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi had the interpretation of “comprehensive”, “accurate” and “deep” for the issue of propagating and introducing Islam. “Comprehensive Islam” means individual and social Islam. It means exactly that, to pay attention to all dimensions. Also, the introduction should be deep and not superficial. Unfortunately, today Islam is presented on the world stage superficially. Therefore, in introducing Islam, one should refer to the primary sources and pay attention to the language of nature and the Quran,” he said, regarding the role of the media in explaining and strengthening the Islam of the system.


“The media can explain the Islamic aspect of the system in different dimensions. It is necessary to promote the discourse of the system along with propagating Islam. According to a Western thinker, “Soviet rulers tried to eradicate religion for 70 years, but today the majority of its people believe in God.” Westerners also sought to overthrow God, but failed and turned to false spirituality. Therefore, it is necessary to explain the original spirituality, justice in a comprehensive sense, and resistance in a scientific way,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that Islam pays attention to all aspects of human life.


Demands should not be partisan but real

“The Islamic Revolution of Iran is prominent in all three areas of Islam, leadership, and the people and the media must pursue their demands in all areas. The parliament, the government, and the judiciary must be at the level of the revolution and the international arena. Of course, the demands should not be partisan, but real. On the other hand, not only problems but also solutions should be provided. Also, provide your views based on field studies,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, emphasizing addressing the revolutionary attitude in the seminaries in the field of media.


“We have done very little on the issue of Velayat-e-Faqih. It must be explained what the situation is like in other countries in the political arena and in each country, who has the final say. As the late Imam Khomeini has said, “The imagination of Velayat-e-Faqih leads to acknowledging it, and there is no need for argument.” Therefore, it is necessary to explain and work on the existential philosophy of Velayat-e-Faqih for the younger generation, adolescents, and in education, and to publish books for this purpose,” he said, stating that it is necessary to explain the political authority of Velayat-e-Faqih.


It should be mentioned that at the beginning of the meeting, Hojat al-Islam Mahdi Mohagheghi, Chief Executive officer of Rasa News Agency, presented a report on the history and activities of the Agency.

Late Khosrowshahi of rare personalities, seminary should train people like him: Ayatollah Ramazani

The unveiling ceremony of the new software of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and the commemoration of the late Professor “Sayed Hadi Khosroshahi” was held on Monday, March 8, 2021 in the “Library of the Center for Islamic Studies” in Pardisan Qom in the presence of a limited number of guests, with observing health protocols.


In this ceremony, which was held on the occasion of the first anniversary of Prof. Khosrowshahi’s demise and coincided with the day of Sayed Jamal al-Din Asadabadi, the website “Rah-e Hadi’ affiliated to the Office for Preservation and Publication of Prof. Khosroshahi’s Works and Thoughts was inaugurated by the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

The late Khosrowshahi was an exceptional and rare figure: Ayatollah Ramezani

Saying that due to special circumstances (of covid-19), the funeral of the late Khosrowshahi was held with a small people, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, at the beginning of his speech, asked God for his exaltation, and mercy.


“Some thinkers and researchers do not have the chance to compile and present their works in a coherent and regular manner. The late Professor Falaturi (1926-1996) lived in Germany for a long time and wrote books. I was looking for his works in Hamburg, but because no effort was made to collect his works, his works were distributed in different places and were not available in a coherent manner. I appreciate the son of the late Khosrowshahi and I pray for him because as a righteous child, he takes care of collecting the works of his honorable father and executes the will of the deceased as much as possible,” he said, appreciating the son of the late Khosrowshahi for following and reviving the works of this thinker.


At no time like ours have the conditions been provided for the propagation of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school. We must seize this golden opportunity. If we fail to do this, our opportunity will be missed. Martyr Haj Qassem Soleimani said that the opportunities that are created for us in crises have been much more than usual. In these difficult circumstances. In these difficult circumstances, we must show the best activity in explaining and propagating the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.).




Unveiling of software and opening of Rah-e Hadi website

Endurance, patience in the face of enemies, hardships, factors of victory of Islamic society: Ayatollah Ramazani

Endurance, patience in the face of enemies, hardships, factors of victory of Islamic society: Ayatollah Ramazani

The Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly delivered a speech at the birth ceremony of Imam Ali (a.s.) in the presence of Shiites and the followers of this Imam on the night of Thursday, February 25, 2021, at the Assembly of Hazrat Fatemeh Al-Zahra (a.s.) in Syria.


“According to a narration of Imam Ali (a.s.), in order to strengthen the Islamic society, it is necessary to pay attention to four points: First, man must be pious. The Quran says that piety is the best clothing for man. A society without God would be naked and worthless. The enemies of Islam have always sought to erase the name of God because they seek to erase Islam. God’s name gives meaning to human life and the identity of society takes on a transcendent form in connection with God,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani in the ceremony.


“The West seeks to promote liberalism and indecency in Islamic society. To this end, the West has targeted our women, girls, youth, and families to separate them from God. Therefore, to create a healthy society, we must pay attention to the necessities,” he added.


“Islam opposes laziness. Therefore, the Qur'an advises us to do righteous deeds. “[to see] which of you is best in conduct” (Holy Quran 67:2) means to seek the best action, not the most action. The effort is the key to the success of Islamic society. In order to achieve a pure life, we must strive day and night, and this effort is not about the quantity of actions, but according to the Quran, we must also increase the quality of them,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, introducing ijtihad and effort as the second issue from Imam Ali’s point of view to strengthen the Islamic society.


“The third point in the statement of Imam Ali (a.s.) is “chastity and purity”. Imam Ali (a.s.) says, “Pure people are about to become angels”. Chastity is the adornment and beauty of divine life. Maintaining hijab and chastity is a must for girls and boys against the cultural invasion of the West. The enemies of Islam are trying to destroy the Islamic society from within by creating a breach in the chastity of the family through the youth. In the face of these attacks, it is our duty to maintain the family and emphasize public decency,” he continued.


“The fourth point from Imam Ali’s point of view to strengthen the Islamic society is “stability and endurance”. Everything we are going to do must be right and correct. That is, to pray correctly and pay zakat correctly, and so on. Therefore, we must be strong and powerful in performing our duties and avoiding Haram things. Therefore, endurance and patience in the face of enemies and hardships is another factor in the victory and success of Islamic society,” Ayatollah Ramazani also stated.

Resistance Front in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon has established true position of Shiites in region, world: Ayatollah Ramazani

Resistance Front in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon has established true position of Shiites in region, world: Ayatollah Ramazani

 During his visit to Syria on Thursday, February 25, 2021, the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly met Hojat al-Islam Sayed Abdullah Nezam, the President of the Assembly of Hazrat Fatemeh Al-Zahra (a.s.).


“Michel Foucault believed that there would never be a religious revolution and that all revolutions would be secular and atheistic. But the Islamic Revolution of Iran rejected his theory and caused him to change his theory. Previously, Muslims did not have scientific power and global status and were considered third world and underdeveloped countries. But today, Islamic centers have expanded in the world. In Germany, for example, there were 100 Islamic centers, which has grown to 200 today. We are faced with the quantitative development of Islamic centers. But, more important than quantitative development, we need the qualitative development that exists. It is also one of the most serious discussions in scientific centers of the world such as Harvard, Cambridge and Sorbonne, are Islam and approaches to understanding Islam,” Ayatollah Reza Ramazani stated in this meeting.


“In the past, Muslim countries and cities were the center of science, but the West stole this science from Muslims and now rules the world with it,” added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“Thanks God, the Islamic Republic of Iran, has been able to achieve an important scientific position. For example, in the medical sciences, Islamic Iran was able to produce the covid-19 vaccine, and in the next few months, this vaccine will overtake the French and British vaccines and will become international,” He said about the progress of the Islamic Revolution of Iran.


“Shiites could not have lived normally if the idea of resistance had not been accompanied by scientific development. The Resistance Front in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon has established the true position of the Shiites in the region and in the world,” Ayatollah Ramazani said about the position of thought and the role of resistance among Shiites.


“Allame Mujahid Sayed Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Hezbollah in Lebanon, has a precise speech that gave me double morale and dignity. It was that “We will not allow Hazrat Zainab (a.s.) to be captured again.” This shows that the Shiites resisted the extremist elements with all their might. Let us remember the martyrs of the resistance and the honorable martyr, Sardar Haj Qasem Soleimani, for whom the funeral of a large number of people in Iran and Iraq was held. The funeral procession of the martyrs of the resistance shows the people’s acceptance of the culture of resistance and brought to fruition the words of the late Imam Khomeini, who said that “America can do no wrong”. Today, thanks to the struggles of the warriors of Islam, the power of resistance has increased and the enemies can do nothing,” he stated.


“The manifestation of the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) has reached a point where the former Secretary General of the United Nations said, “I wish Imam Khamenei would be the Secretary General of the United Nations to defend the people.” This statement is taken from the fact that Imam Khamenei is the son of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school,” emphasized the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
