The Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly met Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, a Bahraini member of the Supreme Council of the Assembly.
At the beginning of this conversation, presenting a report on the mission and activities of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani stated, “To explain the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.), the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly has an important mission to be a scientific and spiritual reference for the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.).
Activities of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly
“The Assembly is the link between the sources of emulation and the leadership and the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in the world, and in this regard, carries out activities in various departments. Among these activities, we can mention the Wiki Shia as an encyclopedia of the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), the Thaqalayn Satellite TV, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) News Agency ABNA, and the production and publication of books in the living languages of the world,” he continued.
“Justice has been the desire of all the divine prophets and the Infallibles (a.s.) in all dimensions, and the issue of resistance is not in conflict with compassionate Islam (Rahmani Islam). Our prophet is the prophet of mercy, and resistance is the same as mercy. Because the resistance is against tyranny, oppression, power-seeking, and domination of arrogant and tyrannical rulers, which is obligatory according to reason and fitra (nature). It is very clear that Rahmani Islam without resistance, as well as attributing violence to Islam, is distorting Islam,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, noting that the strategies of the Assembly to introduce the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) are rationality, spirituality, justice, and resistance.
Resistance is not equal to intimidation, terror, and violence
“Today, the issue must be seriously discussed that resistance is never equal to intimidation, terror, and violence. It is rather confronting violence and extremism,” he emphasized.
“The school of Ahl al-Bayt (as) is the school of moderation and confrontation with extremism. But unfortunately, the extremists are harming Islam and the Quran,” Ayatollah Ramazani also said.
Presence of Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim in Iran blessed/Precious opportunity for Assembly
“Your presence is also very important and valuable for the Axis of Resistance. I congratulate you on this vitality and activities in the field of resistance. We ask God to continue the grace of your existence and blessings for the Assembly and Islamic Ummah,” he said in the end addressing Sheik Isa Qassim, considering his presence in Iran as blessed for the Assembly.
Following this meeting, Ayatollah Sheikh Issa Qassim stated, “What is with the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is very important, and the servants of God need this provision which has divine dignity.”
“Many doubts are entered in the minds, souls, determination, and will of Muslims. As a result, it creates problems and obstacles in the original Islamic way,” he said, referring to the brutal attacks against Islam and the religion of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) by the enemies with the many facilities they have.
Our elites do not know the correct Islam
“Most of the Muslim ummah do not know the importance of Islamic thought. Even our elites are not fully acquainted with the correct Islam,” continued the Bahraini member of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
He mentioned the expansion of religious activity as much as the Assembly can afford, and the training of specialized staff and scholars as needs that the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly of the should work on more.
“In the dissemination of religious ideas, quality should not be sacrificed to quantity. The Islamic Ummah needs to train great men to build the world properly. In this regard, preachers, managers, and experts in all fields are different in their level of activity. It is important to pay attention to the academic level of preachers and graduates. We have to cover a large area in terms of the Muslim population,” stated Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim.
We need to know our audience well in the United States and other countries
“We need to know our audience in the United States and other countries properly so that we can provide them with relevant content. Because inappropriate expression causes failure and gives the opposite result. Also, choosing the wrong method prevents us from achieving our goals,” he added, emphasizing knowing the audience in propagating.
“In terms of method, we should follow the example of the Quran. The Quran and Sunnah have given us the best methods, and the methods adopted by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) are the best. In terms of method, we have to use the most accurate method, and in terms of action, we have to do our best,” added the Bahraini member of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, saying that we have the main substance, that is, divine and correct thought.
The blessings and services of the Assembly should include neighboring countries too
“May God bless the efforts of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly. Given the many problems that the Islamic Republic of Iran has, and the battles it has on various fronts, the activities of the Assembly are great and heavy. The activity of the assembly should be developed and it should have more power and influence,” he said, noting that the blessings and services of the Assembly should also include the neighboring countries.
“There is no true and sound foundation like the true and sound foundation of the faith which has been revealed by God, and this Islamic thought will defeat the American and other’s thought,” the Bahraini activist cleric stressed.
“This land (Iran) and its great men are the sources of resistance and serious and sincere revolutionary movements. I hope that the whole world of believers will benefit from the effects of the movements of this land. The Islamic Revolution of Iran is a great movement that also gives birth to the Resistance that has several different dimensions. It is worthwhile for the Resistance to be active in all areas,” he said, regarding the promotion of the idea of Resistance in the Islamic world by the Islamic Revolution of Iran.
Resistance must be continuous, widespread, and entrenched and encompass all dimensions
“The activities of the enemies of Islam, the revolution and the Resistance, have many dimensions and are planned and calculated and are supported in the long run with many facilities. Therefore, must be continuous, widespread, and entrenched and encompass all dimensions,” added the Bahraini member of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
“One who is built and prepared for Resistance from the beginning of growth will be more entrenched and powerful, and more intellectually and personally prepared. Therefore, we must start the process of training the Resistance, spiritually, from the family. It will be proper if the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly puts the training of the spirit of resistance on its agenda for children,” he said in the end, referring to the need to train the spirit of resistance in the Islamic society in childhood.
“We must also teach our children the spirit of non-compromise with the Zionist regime from childhood. With timely training, one nation will stand up to Israel and everyone will believe in the fight against compromise,” he continued.
