Head of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Iraq’s Office, speaks of love between Iraqi, Iranian nations

Tuesday, 28 September 2021

Referring to the activities of Iraq’s Office of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, during the Arbaeen of this year, the head of the office said, “The activities of Iraq’s Office of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, in the Arbaeen ceremony days, can be divided into two parts, theoretical and practical. In the theoretical section, the office sent guidelines to the managers of the representations in the various provinces of Iraq. The AhlulBayt World Assembly has offices in 15 Iraqi provinces and is associated with 700 men and women missionaries in the country, from Mosul to Basra. Each of the missionaries has a Hosseiniyah or a mosque or a place for their activities and preaching. During the Covid-19 outbreak, they were propagating through virtual groups in cyberspace.”

“Some of the guidelines of the Iraqi office of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly was related to the missionaries themselves and their duties in the Arbaeen ceremony. While some of them were related to pilgrims. In the final section, the guidelines addressed the religious, cultural, and political situation in Iraq, and necessary follow-ups in this regard were carried out by the missionaries of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) Assembly,” said Hojat al-Islam Pahlavanzadeh Behbahani in an interview with ABNA News Agency correspondent in Iraq.

At the beginning of Muharram, in a letter to Hojat al-Islam Sheikh Abdul Mahdi Karbalaei, the religious guardian of the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (a.s.), we asked him to allocate places in the cities on the pilgrim roads leading to the city of Karbala to the Assembly of AhlulBayt (a.s.). With this request, it was agreed that the Assembly would have places on the Najaf-Karbala and the Baghdad-Karbala roads. In these places, cultural products such as brochures of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, books related to Hosseini Arbaeen, books of the late Ayatollah Asefi, and CDs of the International Ashura Foundation were distributed among the pilgrims,” he added.

“One of the activities of this assembly in the Arbaeen was to visit the Mawkebs in person. In this regard, I attended the Mawkeb of clergy sisters of the Qom Seminary entitled “Fatimid Women”. Iraq’s Office of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly was involved in providing a suitable place for this Mawkeb. “Fatimid Women” Mawkeb had booths to teach painting to children. Also, correcting the recitation of Surah Al-Hamd and answering the religious questions for women were among the other parts of this Mawkeb,” said the head of Iraq’s Office of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the in-person visits to the Arbaeen Mawkebs.

“Also, on behalf of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, I visited the Mawkeb of Palestinian Ulama, entitled “Neda al-Aqsa”, located in pillar 833, on the way from Najaf to Karbala. During the visit, I expressed my satisfaction with the establishment of this Mawkeb to its organizers. The establishment of the Mawkeb of the Palestinian Ulama took place during the days of the conference on reconciliation with the Zionist regime in Erbil, which was attended by the Ba’athists and some tribal sheikhs. It was necessary to set up a Mawkeb from Palestine on the way to the shrine of Imam Hussain (a.s.). Because, the pilgrim returning from the Arbaeen Walk must understand the message “No to Humiliation” of Imam Hussain (a.s.), and the path to the victory of Palestine, passes through the path of the AhlulBayt (a.s.),” he continued.

“Global arrogance, led by the United States and Israel, tried to bring the Shiites to their knees, especially in Iran and Iraq but failed. Then they brought ISIL, and said that it would take thirty years to get it out of Iraq! But the expulsion of ISIL from Iraq was possible in about two years with the fatwa of Ayatollah Sistani and the help of Martyr Soleimani. Then, they tried to divide Iranian and Iraqi nations, which they also failed. The love of the Iranian and Iraqi nations for each other is deep in their hearts. During the Arbaeen days, I witnessed Iraqi soldiers serving an Iranian veteran who had been wounded in the Iraq war. This is possible only with the love of Imam Hussain (a.s.),” Pahlavanzadeh Behbahani added.

“The pope’s visit to Iraq was supposed to be the second version of his trip to the UAE. Three months after the pope’s visit to the UAE, relations between Israel and the UAE were normalized. The outcome of the pope’s visit to Iraq was also to normalize relations between Iraq and Israel. But Grand Ayatollah Sistani’s response in defense of the oppressed nation of Palestine thwarted this plan. Condemnations of the Reconciliation Conference in Erbil also forced the KRG to reject it. Those who seek to normalize relations between Iraq and Israel should be told that it will never happen,” said the head of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) Assembly of Iraq, referring to the global arrogance’s efforts to normalize relations between Iraq and Israel.

“During the last two years, especially last year, due to the absence of Iranian pilgrims, I witnessed the sorrow of Mawkeb owners and Iraqi pilgrims. Last year I saw Mawkeb owners waiting in the streets longingly to see an Iranian pilgrim. In Arbaeen last year, the Iraqi people formed groups and made pilgrimages on behalf of the Iranian people. We have also seen in recent days that some Iraqi Mawkebs were closing down in areas such as Diwaniyah and Shamiyah to Najaf. But upon hearing the arrival of the Iranian pilgrims, they were re-established to serve the Iranian pilgrims. God willing, this love between the Iranian and the Iraqi nations, which is due to the blessing of Imam Hussain (a.s.), will always remain,” he said, in response to a question on the opinion of the Iraqi people about the absence of Iranian pilgrims at the Arbaeen ceremony this year.

“Every pilgrim of Hosseini Arbaeen, from any language and nation, after returning from the Arbaeen pilgrimage, must carry Hosseini’s morality, dignity, culture, and courage. We are at a time when our enemies are united and ready to kill Muslims for dollars. Therefore, we should not submit to humiliation in the face of enemies,” Pahlavanzadeh Behbahani stated in the end on the desirable souvenir of a pilgrim from the Arbaeen pilgrimage ceremony.

Tuesday, 28 September 2021

Referring to the mission of the International Ashura Foundation, the Foundation’s Deputy for International Affairs stated, “In line with its goals and missions, the International Ashura Foundation is should introduce the culture of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the Ashura movement, as well as the principles of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) to the people of the world and non-Iranian audiences.”

“In the current situation where the expansion of Covid-19 has made face-to-face gatherings impossible, one of the activities of this foundation is to hold international webinars. In Muharram and Safar last year, the Foundation held 28 international webinars on various topics related to Ashura, with the participation of cultural figures and prominent scholars and figures of Sunnis, Christians, and religious minorities,” said Hassan Khakrand, in an interview with ABNA News Agency correspondent in Iraq, in response to a question on the activities of the International Ashura Foundation.

“In the webinars of Ashura International Foundation, topics such as Imam Hussain (a.s.) movement, philosophy of Ashura, the role of Hazrat Zainab (a.s.) after Ashura, and the role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) and companions of Imam Hussain (a.s.) before and after Ashura, were explained with the participation of cultural figures and scholars. Institutions such as the United Ummah Center, the Iranian Cultural Counselor in Beirut, the Tehran Municipality, and the Imam al-Montazar Institute collaborated in holding these webinars. The webinars of the Ashura International Foundation have been well received in the media and cyberspace,” he added.

“This year, the Foundation has held eight webinars on topics such as the role of Hazrat Zainab (a.s.), the role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.), the Christian view of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and the Sunni view of Imam Hussein (a.s.),” said the Deputy for International Affairs of the Ashura International Foundation, on the webinars which have been held by the foundation.

“Activities of the International Ashura Foundation include the production of Ashura-related products such as lectures, books, articles, encyclopedias, art clips, music videos, and photographs. These products were prepared in the form of CDs, and before Muharram were sent by the Foundation to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the Al-Mustafa International University, cultural consultations, and institutions operating abroad to be used in mosques, Hosseiniyahs and Heya’ts. The lectures and clips were selected and chosen by the Ashura International Foundation to have pure topics and away from exaggeration, distortion, and deviation,” Khakrand continued.

“Before the month of Muharram, by the order of Ayatollah Akhtari, the head of the International Ashura Foundation, the Foundation prepared Ashura guidelines for holding mourning ceremonies for Imam Hussain (a.s.), and after translating it into different languages, they were sent to all cultural and religious centers. In these guidelines, the issue of the Covid-19 outbreak was also considered so that these centers could convey the message of Imam Hussain (a.s.) to the people of the world, despite the limitations caused by the virus outbreak,” he added.

“Before Muharram, the Ashura International Foundation produced seven 30-minute clips, each containing 15 minutes of speeches by figures such as Ayatollah Ramazani, Ayatollah Akhtari, Ayatollah Araki, and Ayatollah Sheikh Issa Qasem. In these artistic Ashura-related clips, the statements of Imam Khomeini (r.a.) and the Supreme Leader of the Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei, the narrations of orientalists and various personalities about Imam Hussain (a.s.) were presented. In addition to being broadcast on Al- Thaqalayn TV, the Ashura International Foundation’s video clips on the month of Muharram were presented to the IRIB and the Islamic Radio and Television Union for broadcasting” said the Deputy for International Affairs of the Ashura International Foundation, referring to the video productions of the Foundation.

“The Ashura International Foundation also produced 12 two- to five-minute clips with Persian, Arabic, English, and Urdu subtitles. Before Muharram, Ayatollah Akhtari sent open letters to the muftis of the Islamic world, cultural figures, and scientific-cultural centers of the world. The subjects of these letters were the Ashura movement, the philosophy of the uprising of Imam Hussain (a.s.), and the introduction of the Ashura Foundation and its goals. In his letters, Ayatollah Akhtari asked these figures and institutions to cooperate in explaining the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the Ashura movement in the world,” he continued.

“The International Ashura Foundation has also prepared a draft memorandum of cooperation with the Holy Shrine of Imam Hussain (a.s.). The draft mentions joint activities, including webinars, authoring, and research,” Khakrand added.

“On Arbaeen this year, Despite the existing restrictions, the Foundation printed banners in Arabic, and they were installed during the Arbaeen pilgrimage in Mawkebs, such as the Mawkeb of Imam Reza (a.s.) and the Mawkeb of “Neda al-Aqsa”. Also, the products of the International Ashura Foundation were prepared on CDs with the logo of the Foundation and were made available to pilgrims. The CDs contained products such as lectures, books, encyclopedias, and art clips,” he said, referring to the activities of the International Ashura Foundation during the Arbaeen pilgrimage this year.

“The movement of Imam Hussain (a.s.) is a heat that is always burning in the hearts. Enthusiasts of Imam Hussain (a.s.) always love to participate in the Arbaeen Walk. However, restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 outbreak led to strict regulations. while it was possible to facilitate the presence of pilgrims in the Arbaeen Walk, a walk that is unique in history. People were dissatisfied with these actions; measures that prevented Iranian pilgrims from participating in the Arbaeen pilgrimage with large crowds. I hope that this disease will disappear as soon as possible and next year we will see the enthusiastic presence of Iranians who love Imam Hussain (a.s.) in the Arbaeen Walk,” said the Deputy for International Affairs of the Ashura International Foundation, referring to the impact of restrictions due to the outbreak of Covid-19 on the presence of Iranian pilgrims at the Arbaeen ceremony.

“According to the mission of the International Ashura Foundation, the Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors of the Foundation call on the officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran to pay more attention to the Foundation and provide the necessary funds for it to fulfill its mission. Ashura International Foundation can play a great role abroad but the shortcomings of this foundation must be compensated. We owe all our assets to Imam Hussain (a.s.) and the thoughts and ideas of the Infallible Imams (a.s.) and the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.). We must introduce this resuscitative school to global audiences outside of Iran through artistic and up-to-date methods. If these audiences understand the facts, they will learn the lesson of resistance and fighting oppression from Imam Hussain (a.s.) and they can consider Imam Hussain (a.s.) as their role model,” he mentioned.

Ayatollah Ramazani expressed his condolences on demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli

Ayatollah Ramazani expressed his condolences on demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli

In a message, Ayatollah Ramazani, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World, Assembly, expressed his condolences on demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli.

 Ayatollah Ramazani’s message is as follows:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

 «يَرْفَعِ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ دَرَجَات» (المجادلة: 58)

 

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“Allah will exalt those who believe among you, and those who have knowledge, to high ranks.” (Al-Mujadila: 58)

The demise of the divine scholar and sage, and Polymath Allameh, Ayatollah Hassan Hassanzadeh Amoli, saddened the lovers, seekers of knowledge, wisdom, mysticism and Islamic spirituality.

A unique and comprehensive figure in Rational Sciences and Narrative Knowledges, he was proficient in Tafsir, Fiqh, Osul, hadith, Arabic vocabulary, literature, philosophy, theology, ethics, mysticism, medicine, mathematics, astronomy, numbers and horizons, Zij, Jafr, and Occult. He was fluent in several living languages, wrote in them, and created meaningful poetry and prose.

The dominance of that pious scholar over the now-abandoned sciences was such that no other figure so comprehensive in these disciplines could be found today, all over the world.

In addition, what made the late Allameh Hassanzadeh more distinctive was the “combination of knowledge and practice”. This feature attracted young clerics and students, who seek pure knowledge, to that mystic. It is very unlikely that seminaries will soon be able to train such a comprehensive and unique figure.

Of course, his numerous and diverse works in various sciences are a precious treasure that every student and thinker can use.

His support for the late Imam Khomeini (r.a.) and the Islamic Revolution, his presence on the fronts during the years of holy defense as a simple volunteer soldier, and his constant support for Velayat-e-Faqih and the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, were manifestations of “the association of beneficial and luminous knowledge with the Akbar and Asghar Jihad (battle against the internal enemy, that is, carnal interests, and battle against the external enemy)”.

I offer my condolences on this irreparable loss to Imam Mahdi (a.s.), as well as the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the grand sources of emulation, seminaries and universities, those interested in mysticism and divine knowledges, the martyr-nurturing people of Amol and all students, enthusiasts and relatives, his acquaintances of and relatives, especially virtuous and learned children of the that blessed deceased.

That great scholar was the lover of the Infallibles (a.s.) in the true sense of the word. An example of this love and devotion has been manifested in his book “Fass Al-Fatemi” dedicated to the great position of Lady Fatemeh Zahra (a.s.).

Therefore, in the Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (a.s.), I ask God Almighty to reunite the holy soul of the late Allameh Hassanzadeh with the Infallible AhlulBayt (a.s.) - especially Sayed Al-Shuhada (a.s.) - and to provide patience for his family and relatives.

وإنا لله و إنا إلیه راجعون

Woman can be in charge of critical positions in dangerous situations: Mazari

Woman can be in charge of critical positions in dangerous situations: Mazari

On Thursday, September 23, 2021, coincides with Safer 1, 1443 and as Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (a.s.) anniversary approaches, the conference “Ashura to Arbaeen; Messages and Consequences”, and also in its sideline, appreciation of the Haya’ats of Afghan immigrants in Tehran was held in compliance with health protocols in Cultural Revolution Complex (Sarcheshmeh), by the representative office of Tebyan Center for Social and Cultural Activities in Tehran, in cooperation with the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly and the Islamic Development Organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Speaking at the conference, while thanking and appreciating the organizers of the conference, Hojat al-Islam Sayed Issa Hosseini Mazari, Director-General of Tebyan Center for Social and Cultural Activities, said, “Although a large ceremony was to be held, due to the current situation, as well as the commitment of the hall management to invite a limited number of guests due to (Covid-19 limitations), we had to hold the conference with a limited number of participants.”

At the conference, Mazari made remarks on the theme of the conference, which is “From Ashura to Arbaeen; Messages and Results”.

Referring to the duties of Lady Zainab (a.s.) from the Ashura afternoon onwards, Hosseini Mazari said, “One of the important messages of the movement and behavior of Lady Zainab (a.s.) is that a woman can be in charge of critical positions in the most dangerous situations and in the worst atmosphere. From the afternoon of Ashura onwards, Lady Zainab (a.s.) had three important duties: to take care of the families of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and other martyrs of Karbala, to protect Imam Sajjad (a.s.), and to manage the propagation (against enemy). If Muslim women had behaved like Lady Zainab (a.s.), society would have not faced current problems.”

Referring to the extremism in dealing with women in Afghanistan from the communist era to the Western government, the head of the Tebyan Center for Cultural and Social Activities said, “Unfortunately, there have been two contradictory encounters with women. Sometimes this behavior has been extremist and sometimes it been accompanied by negligence. Sometimes, women are considered as a commodity and humiliated, and their personalities are downgraded. Sometimes they are kept in the dark corners of life and are used only for sexual purposes. These two extremist approaches have existed in our country, Afghanistan.”

“One of the ways the enemy hit our society was through women, both during the communist era and in the last twenty years, when Western treatment with women was absolutely disgusting,” he added.

“Another treatment of women is due to Talabani. They have treated women uncivilized both during their five-year rule in the 1990s and now that they have come to power. However, Taliban spokesmen made promises that their interaction with women was not the same as before. But there are still signs that women’s rights are not being respected,” Hosseini Mazari added.

“We do not seek women’s rights as defined by Westerners. Also, we are not in favor of women’s rights defined for Afghanistan under the leadership of Ashraf Ghani and Karzai. On the other hand, we do not support women’s rights as defined by the Taliban,” the socio-cultural activist emphasized.

“The second message from Ashura to Arbaeen is that a woman, while she can have a serious presence in the social activities, she can also be the absolute servant of God. Because there is never a contradiction between fighting the enemy and being active in social arena with the absolute servitude of God Almighty. But today, in most cases, this is not the case. In various social activities, we have observed women who, when they attended, no longer observed Islam,” he said.

“Another message from Ashura is motivation. The motivation to maintain the velayat and provide the ground for the continuation of God’s veleyat, caused Lady Zainab (a.s.) to be present and act with more serious power in social activities from the afternoon of Ashura onwards,” Mazari said.

“Our specific task in today’s situation is: We must first act on the messages of Ashura ourselves. We should also explain the goals of Imam Hussain (a.s.) correctly. Here, the duties of the scholars are serious,” said the director-general of the Tebyan Center in response to the question “What is our duty in the current situation?”

AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Indian Office condoled demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli

Saturday, 25 September 2021

In a message, AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the office of India, expressed its condolences on the demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli

The message is as follows:

The demise of the scholar who acted according to knowledge, perfect mystic, pious faqih, honorable expert in hadith, divine sage, Quranic faqih, great ascetic, wise philosopher, flood of wisdom and virtue, humble ascetic, prominent Rijal expert, Ayatollah Hassan Zadeh Amoli saddened the clerics and Islamic seminaries.

This prominent figure, mystic and seeker of the divine path, propagated pure Muhammadan Islam for many years and trained students. In the age of scarcity of Marefat role models, and in the age of the explosion of deception, lies and darkness, the loss of this wise faqih is irreparable damage.

He devoted many years to scientific and cultural services and left many works. He loved the clergies and respected them all. He was truly a man of knowledge and practice, and his words were appealing to the hearts.

During his honorable life, in addition to teaching and research, Ayatollah Hassanzadeh Amoli (r.a.) was never unaware of the issues and conditions of society.

After years of hard and compassionate work for Islam and the prosperous school of Shiism, finally, this mystic faqih, and pious mujtahid, passed away.

On the demise of this divine Alem and pious faqih, we offer our condolences to Imam Mahdi (a.s.), and his rightful successor, Grand Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei, and other sources of emulation, Islamic seminaries, Ulama, and his enthusiasts, especially his honorable family, and pray to God for his mercy upon the deceased.
