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.
