Extensive measures have been taken in this regard, and continuous and useful efforts have been made.”
“Honoring the dignitaries of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school and acquainting the world with them is precious and ever-lasting deed,” he added.
“Commemorating and acquainting the world with the scholars of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school promotes inter-seminaries relations,” the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly continued, “Collaboration, and promoting inter-seminary cooperation, especially between Qom and Najaf seminaries, is one of the blessings of holding a conference to commemorate Ayatollah Al-Musawi Al-Kharsan. The event is blessed and influential, and such actions must be strengthened and developed.”
Emphasizing the partaking of various cultural and scientific institutions in holding the commemoration conference of Ayatollah Al-Musawi Al-Kharsan, he added, “Of course, the conference must be held by the seminaries, so that the dignity of the seminary is respected. Also, in the section of publishing works of the conference, new technologies can be used, such as social networks.”
“The life of Ayatollah Al-Musawi Al-Kharsan is a model for the clergy and clerics. The conference “Umana al-Rosol” (Trustees of the Messengers)” can be held at least once a year to introduce and commemorate one of the Shiite scholars. Especially the dignitaries who studied in Qom or Najaf seminaries and are experts in various subjects,” Ayatollah Ramazani added.
“It is our duty to commemorate and introduce the Shiite grand ulama, and in this regard, we will not spare any organizational help,” he emphasized.
“Holding a conference to introduce and commemorate Ayatollah Musawi al-Kharsan was necessary. He has great reputation and position, and it is our duty to introduce our dignitaries to the world,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in the end.
