On Monday, October 4, 2021, in a gathering of students of the Baqer al-Uloom (a.s.) Maritime Specialties Training Center in Rasht, while condoling the demise of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), the martyrdom of Imam Hassan Mojtaba (a.s.) and the martyrdom of Imam Reza (a.s.), Ayatollah Reza Ramazani said, “Being in the company of young people causes a feeling of vitality and youth. I am very happy to be in the meeting of insightful, justice-seeking, and brave people.”
“The military and scientific power of the Islamic Iran has led Western countries to invite Iranian us to negotiate to hear our literature and discourse,” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that each of Iranian youth shows the power of the Islamic system to the world and the arrogant powers.
“You, young people, are the pioneers of human dignity,” he added, emphasizing that the increase in the power of the Islamic Republic is due to the increase in the power of Islam and Muslims.
“This unity causes us to stand against tyranny, oppression, and anything that harms human dignity,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that we should seek the unity and cohesion of the Muslim Ummah.
“Society must be ethical in order to show its responsibility to others,” he noted, stating that all the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) are included in the rules, rights, and ethics.
“A society that has knowledge but does not have morals, does not have one of the necessary wings for growth and perfection,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
“The US crimes in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as the killing of millions of people in World Wars I and II, are due to the handing over of science to improper people,” he clarified, noting that if there is no morality, commitment, and responsibility, science will be left to the improper people.
“In total, less than 3,000 people were killed on both fronts during the Prophet’s wars. While, in the wars of the twentieth century, about 100 million people were killed,” pointed out Ayatollah Ramazani, saying that the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) always tried not to kill people in his wars.
“The fact that the Islamic Republic has announced Haram the use of nuclear weapons, is out of respect for human dignity,” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that today morality is much more needed by human society than in the past.
“If the progress of science is not accompanied by ethics, many issues will threaten the human society,” he added, stating that the most important responsibility of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) was to prevent the people of the society from being killed.
“In individual ethics, the individual understands himself and establishes the right relationship with himself,” emphasized Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that all Quranic verses and hadiths are in three areas of individual, divine and social ethics.
“Individual ethics is in fact related to the sum of personal capacities and talents,” added the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts, pointing out that in some countries people have lost themselves, so much so that they need the identity clinics.
“Today’s world is a world of the struggle of reason, thinking, love of right and justice against oppression, tyranny, lack of identity and lust, and we must recognize the winner of this competition,” he mentioned.
“If a person’s intellect prevails, all the angels will respect that person, and he will be superior to the angels,” added Ayatollah Ramazani.
“Divine prophets came to reconcile man with man, God, and others,” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that if a person reconciles with himself, he will also reconcile with God and others.
“In divine ethics section, man acquires the attributes that God has, including the wise, the omniscient, the omnipotent, and the forgiving,” he said, referring to divine morality.
“The result of our morality will be seen in the Hereafter, and we will be the guests of our own morality in the Hereafter,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, considering social ethics as the right relationship between man and man.
“Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) came to improve the ethics of human society, and also God’s will is to improve the ethics of humanity,” emphasized the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts, pointing out that according to the hadiths, low and ugly morality is the fuel and firewood of hell.
“Ayatollah Fazel said, “After performing your wajibs, allocate the rest of your time to serve the people”,” he quoted the late Ayatollah Fazel Lankarani, advising young people to help others.
“Haj Qasem Soleimani became the commander and beloved of millions of Iranians with these good qualities,” emphasized Ayatollah Ramazani, stating that if a person has good morals, he will conquer people’s hearts.
“The enthusiastic presence of millions of people at the funeral of Haj Qasem Soleimani is a sign of his popularity,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, considering General Soleimani as a manifestation of the verse “إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ سَيَجْعَلُ لَهُمُ الرَّحْمَٰنُ وُدًّا” (On those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, will (Allah) Most Gracious bestow love.) (Quran, Surah: Maryam, Verse: 96).
