Officials of the “Chennai Shiite Youth Association” from India held a virtual meeting with the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
In this meeting, Hojat al-Islam Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar stated, “In the Quran, the hadiths and the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), Islam has determined the path to the perfection of humanity.”
“According to the hadiths, the Prophet (p.b.u.h) recited all the verses that were revealed to him once in the morning and once in the evening for Imam Ali (a.s.), and explained to him what humanity needs until the Day of Judgment, and asked him to write these issues,” he added.
“The task that the AhlulBayt (a.s.) have assigned to us is to learn their sciences and knowledge and to convey it to all of humanity. Abasalat, one of Imam Reza’s companions, asked the Imam (a.s.), “How can we revive your orders?” Imam Reza (a.s.) replied, “Learn our sciences and teach them to others.” Today, our duty is to acquaint the Shiites, wherever they are, with the pure teachings of Islam and the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.),” continued the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that the Prophet (p.b.u.h) said the Hadith al-Thaqalayn to guide human beings.
“Today, human beings, due to the issues they are facing, are looking for the right path, and the right path is the path of the AhlulBayt (a.s.),” he emphasized.
“The fact that you are making a great effort to convey the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) to your fellow speakers, it makes us happy, and we ask God to give you the best,” said Ahmadi Tabar, addressing the officials of the Chennai Shiite Youth Association.
“To promote the knowledge and culture of the Shiites, I recommend that you make a great effort. Holding meetings to teach Aqaed (Islamic beliefs), the Tafsir of the Quran and the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) are valuable measures that should be expanded. Also, serving the victims of natural disasters is a human duty and one of the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.). Imams (a.s.) provided bread, dates, and food to the needy at night, without having anything to do with the beliefs of those people,” he added.
“While in the real world, you make a serious effort to propagate (Islamic teachings) face to face, do not neglect cyberspace, and have programs to introduce the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in this space,” stated the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, regarding the necessity of cultural activities in cyberspace.
“Involve your audience, such as teachers, preachers, students, and families, in setting up educational and research groups. Pay special attention to the family. The family must be Islamic, and the basis of the family is the parents, and they must raise the families,” he stated about the necessity of teamwork.
At the beginning of this virtual meeting, officials from the Chennai Shiite Youth Association presented a report on their cultural, religious, and social activities.
Some of the activities of the Chennai Shiite Youth Association were: holding ceremonies on the deaths and births anniversaries of Imams (a.s.), holding commemorations for Imam Khomeini and Islamic Unity, setting up religious camps and various exhibitions, including a book fair, providing medical assistance, and educational activities for different regions and cultural and educational activities for children, adolescents, women, and families.
