In EU countries, religious centers become most important medical centers for Covid patients: AhlulBayt University President

In EU countries, religious centers become most important medical centers for Covid patients: AhlulBayt University President

In the conference “Religion, Health, and Humanitarian Aid” which was held on Sunday, July 18, 2021, at the International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.), Hojat al-Islam Dr. Saeed Jazari Ma’moui said, “Last September, the issue was first debated in the Vatican Cardinal Council, and the outbreak of Covid-19 sparked a series of debates, requiring a synergy between religious and health centers.”

“In June 2020, health centers and nursing homes in Italy, France, and Portugal were overcrowded with malignant patients. With the Pope’s message, the church doors were opened for the first time to accommodate Covid-19 patients to help the health organizations,” added the President of AhlulBayt (a.s.) University.

“At the Vatican Cardinal Council, it was emphasized that there is a relationship between religion and health, and that this relationship must be brought to the field. This is an opportunity for the church to introduce people to religious structures. These meetings were successful and now in various cities in Italy and France, religious centers have become the most important medical centers for Covid-19 patient,” he added.

Appreciating the Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), the deputy for International Affairs of AhlulBayt (a.s.) University, and the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in holding the conference “Religion, Health and Humanitarian Aid”, Dr. Jazari Mamoui expressed hope that this path will continue.

Saying that Ayatollah Ramazani, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, has had more than two decades of experience in dealing closely with the academic and religious centers in the West, the President of the University of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) stated, “The experience of cooperation between scientific, medical, health and health centers with religious centers is very valuable for holding this conference.”

“Thanks to the blessed name of AhlulBayt (a.s.), this organization has the mission of providing scientific and cultural service to the devotees of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) from all over the world,” said Dr. Jazari, referring to the activities of the International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.).

“Students of AhlulBayt (a.s.) International University are from foreign countries. The university has faculties of engineering, humanities, law, social sciences, Islamic studies, the Center for Women’s Studies, and the Center for Foreign Languages,” he added.

Today we need religion, health institutions/ Religion guarantee for human health: Ayatollah Ramazani

Today we need religion, health institutions/ Religion guarantee for human health: Ayatollah Ramazani

In the conference “Religion, Health, and Humanitarian Aid” which was held on Sunday, July 18, 2021, at the International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.), Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, while appreciating the organizers, called for the invitation of scientists in various fields, scientific discussions and called for the international dimension of the conference to be more highlighted.

While condoling the martyrdom of Imam Baqer (a.s.), the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “Among the Imams (a.s.), the scholarly character of Imam Baqer (a.s.) provided the ground for a great university, in which he trained students and various enthusiasts in various fields. The first ten days of Dhuʻl-Hijjah are the stage of reaching the perfection of the conduct of the people of knowledge. These are the days when the man can reflect on his true self.”

“Health comes from perfection, which can be related to both the body and the soul. If we examine different areas related to humans, we will reach this relationship,” he said, referring to the theme of the conference “Religion, Health and Humanitarian Aid”, describing it as important.

“In recent centuries in the West, there has been a pessimistic approach to religion. Some have claimed that there is no connection between religion and truth and that religion is not real and, as Ayatollah Motahhari quoted from them, it is superstitious,” stated the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.

“Herbert Spencer and Auguste Comte, and some other Western scholars, consider ignorance as to the cause of worship and inclination towards religion. The attitude of these people towards religion has nothing to do with spirituality, mysticism, and health. Even today, spirituality is propagated without revelatory religion and God. In this pessimistic view, religion has nothing to do with physical and mental health and is in conflict with it,” Ayatollah Ramazani continued.

“According to the late Ayatollah Motahhari, the prophets were sent to invite mankind to worship God. Worship is one of the inner and innate tendencies of human beings. The prophets were sent to call humanity to the true Deity, to distinguish the true Deity from the false Deity,” he said, pointing out that there is no era in human history when religion and God have not been mentioned.

“Concerning humans, there are three types of definitions: At first view, man is limited to sense and matter, the second view is the view of the rational man, and the third view is that of the intuitive human being. Some thinkers also believe that man has two realms of matter and the realm of meaning,” added Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that knowing about the man and his existential areas is one of the most important points that should be analyzed today.

“Man must be able to manage himself accurately with rational and revelatory management,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Religion has a duty to provide a program to regulate and balance the realms of matter and meaning. With this view on religion, each of these terms finds its own place. When we look at religion from this perspective, religion is responsible for modifying the health of the body as well as modifying the health of the human soul and mind,” he said, stating that the field of matter and the field of meaning should be examined.

“If the truth of religion, which is related to the truth of human life and Fitra, is introduced, humanity, today’s generation and the young generation of society will fall in love with religion and its truth, and this issue depends on what discourse and literature we use to introduce religion. There is definitely no violence in Islam, but this religion is full of mercy and love. Like weeds, Some people try to prevent the deepening of the truth of religion and we must stand against these people” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.

“In a classification, Imam Ali (a.s.) classified the sciences into four branches: ‘Jurisprudence is for religion, medicine, for the treatment of diseases of the body, grammar, for the protection of language from error, and astronomy for the knowledge of time.’ This classification shows the importance of health science and being aware of the sciences of the time,” said the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.

“Today, many books and narrations have been written about the health of the body, for example, Imam Ali (a.s.) told Imam Hassan (a.s.), ‘Son! Shall I not teach you four tips to help you get rid of medicine?’ Imam Hassan replied, ‘Yes, Amir al-Mu'minin!’ Imam Ali said, ‘Do not sit at the table, except when you are hungry and do not get up from the table, except when you still want to eat; chew the food completely; and Go to the bathroom before going to bed. If you apply these four tips, you will not need medicine’,” he added.

“In the developed world, people have achieved many things in life welfare affairs and science. But anxiety, stress, depression and suffering from lack of identity are more prevalent in these countries than in developing countries,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to research and statistics published in Western countries on physical and mental health.

“Man needs the peace that comes from within him and his nature. If peace comes from within human nature, it will be lasting,” he added.

“Today we need religious and health institutions. Religion and health should be scientifically defined and compiled in textbooks, at different levels. Religion and health should also be addressed in different ways in the arts,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“If we consider the Quranic verses and the hadiths carefully, we will find that religion considers itself responsible for human health, and wants to guide human beings in a way that leads them to enjoy the health of body and soul,” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.

“In one of his fatwas, Imam Khomeini said, ‘It is Haram to consume anything that harms the human body.’ That is, religion deals directly and indirectly with health,” said the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts, stating that human beings are not allowed to harm their bodies, and maintaining health is obligatory.

“Religion should not be introduced to today’s society dogmatically and stereotypically. Today’s human society, especially in the international arena, if become acquainted with the moral, mystical, rational and other dimensions of religion, the winner of the field will surely be the one who offers the best thought,” said Ayatollah Ramazani in the end.

Commemoration of Allama al-Kharsan, one of examples of dhikr sessions

Commemoration of Allama al-Kharsan, one of examples of dhikr sessions

On Tuesday, July 6, 2021, the Pre-conference of the Scientific Conference for commemorating Ayatollah al-Kharsan, under the title “The role of Ayatollah Mousavi al-Kharsan in reviving the AhlulBayt (a.s.) heritage”, was held by the Academic Committee of the Conference of the “Umana al-Rosol” (Trustees of the Prophets) with the cooperation of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, in the conference hall of the Assembly in Qom.


In the meeting, Hojat al-Islam Ahmadi Tabar, the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, said, “Allameh Kharsan Conference, which is aimed at recognizing his activities in serving the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.), has been followed in the seminaries of Najaf and Qom.”


“One of Allameh Kharsan’s efforts was to revive the scientific heritage of the AhlulBayt (a.s.). This has probably been more than his research work,” he said.


“One who wants to know the history and clarify its dimensions must have strong scientific foundations in order to be able to work on them,” stated the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“Allameh Kharsan has discussed everything, except certain issues, with a critical eye. He was able to present the facts on many issues, even some that may have contradicted the views of others. But in general, all this shows the great efforts of this religious scholar,” said Hojat al-Islam Ahmadi Tabar.


“When we look at the activities in Islamic Republic, we see that during these 40 years after the revolution, a lot of work has been done on Shiite sources. But in the time of Allama al-Kharsan, the space for researching Shiite sources was very limited, and what he did was under difficult circumstances, which is commendable,” he added.


“Remembering the righteous servants of God is one of the dhikrs that has the positive effects and blessings of dhikr (of God). Therefore, holding a commemoration for figures like Allameh al-Kharsan can be considered as examples of dhikr sessions,” pointed out the deputy for scientific and cultural office of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


Allameh Kharsan’s collection of works are in production process


Hojat al-Islam Khansari, the head of the Public Relations of the Computer Research Center of Islamic Sciences, said, “Over the years, the Computer Science Research Center of Islamic Sciences has sought to digitize Shiite reference books, and in addition to these measures, has launched Wiki Noor. An article about Ayatollah Kharsan has been uploaded at Wiki Noor.”


“Most of the books related to Allameh Kharsan, and his collection of works are in production process, and will be available to the audience soon,” he added.

“The first condition for reviving the heritage of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is a correct and accurate understanding of the texts. The Kharsan family had a long history in this regard,” said the head of the Shiite Bibliography Institute.


“Correction of 9 volumes of Bihar al-Anwar collection has been one of the great actions of Allameh Kharsan,” he added.


“Ayatollah Kharsan has stated the problems and difficulties of correcting this book at the beginning of 9 volumes of Bihar al-Anwar,” pointed out Hojat al-Islam Mokhtari.


“Correction of the whole collection of Ibn Idris, in 50 years, has been another magnificent work of Allama Kharsan. At that time the facilities of today, as well as the lists of manuscripts of the world were not available,” Mokhtari stated.


“At that time, access to libraries was very difficult. By considering these problems, we can get a better understanding of the efforts of the Ulama of that time,” he said.


“There are many hadith books that need to be corrected now. Nevertheless, at present, many of our books have a weighty and beautiful print,” said the head of the Shiite Bibliography Institute.


“Ayatollah Kharsan has stated the problems and difficulties of correcting this book at the beginning of 9 volumes of Bihar al-Anwar,” he said.


“Articles No. 9 and No. 10 of the book “Shiite Thoughts”, refer to the biography of Allameh Kharsan,” pointed out Hojat al-Islam Mokhtari.
