Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) achieved levels of perfection in land of ignorance: Nawab

Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) achieved levels of perfection in land of ignorance: Nawab

On Wednesday, April 21, 2021, the anniversary of Hazrat Khadija’s demise, the “International Conference Umm Al-Momenin Khadija Kobra (a.s.), First Lady of Islam” was held virtually with the speech of the thinkers of the Islamic world and with the message of the Grand Ayatollah Javadi Amoli.


In the conference, referring to the characteristics of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.), Hojat al-Islam Sayed Abdul Fattah Nawab, the representative of the Supreme Leader in Hajj and Pilgrimage Affairs said, “Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) reached the levels of perfection in the land of ignorance. She had wisdom in that dark period and this wisdom led to the acquisition of divine grace.”


“One of the achievements of Islam is “Salam”. In the age of Jahiliyyah (ignorance), when people met, they used words such as “good morning” and “good evening”. The Prophet (p.b.u.h) turned these words into “As-salamu Alaykum”. “Salam” is the greetings of the heavenly beings,” Nawab stated, according to the Hajj website.


“Regarding greetings, the Almighty God instructed the Prophet to say “Salam” to the believers when they come to him, and tell them that God has written mercy on himself to treat you with pity. “When those who have faith in Our signs come to you, say, ‘Peace to you! Your Lord has made mercy incumbent upon Himself.” (Quran, Al-An'am: 54). Ziarat texts (written prayers) usually have three parts that begin with a greeting and continue with expressing the personality traits of the person we went on Ziarat (pilgrimage) for, and the final part is both a prayer and a request. The Prophets manners were such that when he went to visit the dead, he would say “Salam”,” continued the representative of the Supreme Leader in Hajj and Pilgrimage affairs.


“The level of the servant in which God says “Salam” to that servant, requires a special wisdom that Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) reached this position,” he said, stating that “Salam” is sometimes from a servant to another servant, sometimes the “Salam” of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) to a believing servant which is done by the command of God, and sometimes in a special level of a servant, God says “Salam” to that servant.


The Prophet told Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) that Gabriel had sent him a message to convey God’s “Salam” to Khadija (a.s.). When the Prophet (p.b.u.h) told this to Khadijah (a.s.), she replied, “God is Salam, from Him is Salam, and Salam to Gabriel”,” Nawab continued.


“Her wisdom is partly due to her family. Because she was one of the descendants of Ishmael (a.s.) and the descendants of Abd Manaf, and her family was mentioned in that land with greatness. Like the Prophet (p.b.u.h), Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) did not follow the polytheists and she was persecuted by the idolater polytheists. While this lady had all the characteristics of knowledge, worship, patience, forbearance, raising children and so on,” he said, explaining the issue of how Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) reached this position.


“According to Shiite and Sunni hadiths, Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) had both great wealth and special knowledge and understanding. When she got to know the Prophet (p.b.u.h), she herself proposed to Abdullah’s orphan,” he mentioned saying, “That lady of Islam, presented her box of documents to the Prophet on the first night of the marriage. The Prophet did not neglect Hazrat Khadija (a.s.), and sometimes sacrifice sheep and sent the meat to Khadija’s friends. Sometimes other women complained that God had given the Prophet better than Khadija. But the Prophet replied that no, God has never given him better than Khadija, and said, “She believed in me when everyone was away from me and left all his property at my disposal. He married Abdullah’s orphan and became Umm Al-Momenin, not to marry the Prophet and become Umm Al-Momenin”


“When the Prophet (p.b.u.h) was in the She’b (Valley) of Abi Talib (during the Quraysh boycott on Bani Hashem, Prophet Muhammad, and his followers), it was the property of Khadija (a.s.) that neutralized the sanctions and the siege. Therefore, when a person has wisdom, God also provides for him or her and includes His grace in him or her. Hence, the generation of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) continued only from Hazrat Khadija al-Kobra. Because Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) gave her property to the Prophet (p.b.u.h), God provided Kowsar to her,” he continued.


‘Another provision of God to Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is that in history, God has only greeted Khadija (a.s.). He was the first person to acknowledge the Imamate of Imam Ali (a.s.). The message of the life of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is that the defense of the Imam and the truth should not be neglected in any way. She gave all her wealth and power, and God appreciated this good servant for her goodness and provided her with Kowsar,” Nawab clarified.

Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is still oppressed: Rafi’i

Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is still oppressed: Rafi’i

On Wednesday, April 21, 2021, the anniversary of Hazrat Khadija’s demise, the “International Conference Umm Al-Momenin Khadija Kobra (a.s.), First Lady of Islam” was held virtually with the speech of the thinkers of the Islamic world and with the message of the Grand Ayatollah Javadi Amoli.


In the General meeting of the conference, referring to the characteristics of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.), Hojat al-Islam Nasser Rafi’i said, “There are two types of characteristics that people have. Some perfections are inherent and involuntary, but some attributes and perfections are acquired. Beauty is not an acquired attribute, but knowledge, faith, and piety are acquired perfections that must be pursued and achieved.”


“Regarding the inherent and involuntary perfections, it is narrated that there are three characteristics that if God gives to someone, he is perfect: intellect, beauty, and eloquence. Hazrat Khadija had inherent characteristics. For example, it is said that she was the most beautiful woman of her time. This is an involuntary attribute. She was one of the most perfect women of her time in terms of intellect and wisdom, and she was one of the most complete in terms of votes and decisions. These are inherent and involuntary traits,” Rafi’i continued, according to Arbaeen website.


“Acquired attributes are of two types. Some traits are acquired but only one person has them. That is, if one acquires that attribute, the others cannot acquire it. For example, achieving first place in the entrance exam or becoming the first person in a competition. When we examine the life of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.), in this section too, she has the first places that no one has,” said the professor of the seminary of Qom regarding the acquired attributes of Hazrat Khadija.


The first ranks, which only she has

“Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is the first wife of the Prophet. She was the first woman to live the longest time with the Prophet, 25 years. She was the first woman who believed in the Prophet. She was the first supporter of the Prophet among women. She was the first devotee who gave all his property to the Prophet. Therefore, none of the wives of the Prophet have the position that Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) has. The other wives of the Prophet became the wives of the Prophet after the Be’that and in a situation where the problems had decreased. But Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) married the Prophet 15 years before the mission,” he continued.


Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) clear example of verses: “And the Foremost Ones are the foremost ones: they are the ones brought near [to Allah]” (Al-Waqi'a: 10, 11)


“The person who became Khadija’s husband was not yet a prophet. Rather, he was a 25-year-old man who grew up an orphan and has no property. He does not even have a house and grew up in Abu Talib’s house. On this basis, is not Khadija an example of “And the Foremost Ones are the foremost ones: they are the ones brought near [to Allah]” (Al-Waqi'a: 10, 11)? Did not the Quran say that those who participated in jihad and gave alms before the conquest of Mecca are not equal to those who gave alms and participated in jihad after the conquest of Mecca? Is a person who honored the Prophet before Islam equal to someone who married him after Islam and after the Prophet became the head of government?” Rafi’i noted.


“Hazrat Khadija lived in the society of Jahiliyyah (ignorance. The age of ignorance is an Islamic concept referring to the period of time and state of affairs in Arabia before the advent of Islam) before Islam. The Quran uses the word Jahiliyyah four times and mentions four characteristics of this period. These characteristics are: the prejudices that were in Jahiliyyah, the bedizenment of Jahiliyyah means the absence of chastity in the society, the “ruling” of Jahiliyyah means the rulings that were in Jahiliyyah and the suspicion of Jahiliyyah. In such a society where people worshiped idols and did not observe moral values, this lady was Mowahed (monotheist) and was not tainted with the corruption of society,” he continued.


“One of the prejudices of that time was that because their fathers were Moshrek (polytheists), they also persisted to follow their fathers’ religion. In such a society, Hazrat Khadija broke with traditions. Many people blamed her for getting married Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h). Especially since she was very rich and very beautiful. She married the Prophet, gave the dowry herself, and gave her house to the Prophet. The whole life of the Prophet was in Khadija’s house,” Rafi’i said, recognizing the breaking of tradition and fighting against prejudices as the characteristics of Hazrat Khadija.


“When Mecca was conquered a few years later, many wanted to see where the Prophet who had defeated people like Abu Sufyan and Abu Jahl would settle in Mecca. The Prophet pitched a tent next to Khadija’s grave and settled there,” he continued.


“She was an entrepreneur and economic manager and had dozens of workers and agents. At one time, the Prophet himself was one of these agents. In such circumstances, this figure supported many people in Hejaz. In the year of “Removing the barriers to production” (Named by the Supreme Leader of I.R of Iran), Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is a role model,” said Hojat al-Islam Rafi’I, referring to the management of Hazrat Khadija in a society that does not value women.


“Not everyone can sacrifice. Sacrifice is the highest cognition and value. Sacrifice is to give your property and live without it. To give a part of the property and live with another part is charity. Sacrifice is what Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) did and gave her iftar to the poor and captive for three nights and broke her iftar with water. Khadija’s self-sacrifice was so great that she gave all her wealth. So much so that in the She’b (Valley) of Abi Talib (during the Quraysh boycott on Bani Hashem, Prophet Muhammad, and his followers), she slept on the ground and raised his dearest child, Hazrat Zahra (a.s.), on a mat,” he said, describing self-sacrifice as the next point in the life of Hazrat Khadija.


Imam Ali was also raised by Khadija Kobra

“She is a lady whom God repeatedly greets and praises her before the angels. She is the mother of 12 Imams. Imam Ali was also raised by Hazrat Khadija. She is a person that in the Ziarat of all Imams we say: “Peace be upon you, son of Khadija”,” Hojat al-Islam Rafi’i pointed out.


“She was the manifestation of modesty, contentment (of God), loyalty, self-sacrifice, servitude (to God), and most importantly, she had the foresight to see the light of prophecy in the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h). He believed in the Prophet without any hesitation and confronted disbelief alone. We are all indebted to the efforts of Hazrat Khadija al-Kobra (a.s.) and we should praise her much more. But she is still oppressed,” he concluded in the end.

Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) worshiped God monotheistically: Ayatollah Javadi Amoli

Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) worshiped God monotheistically: Ayatollah Javadi Amoli

On Wednesday, April 21, 2021, the anniversary of Hazrat Khadija’s demise, the “International Conference Umm Al-Momenin Khadija Kobra (a.s.), First Lady of Islam” was held virtually with the speech of the thinkers of the Islamic world and with the message of the Grand Ayatollah Javadi Amoli.

“Before the Be’that of the Prophet Muhammad, Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) worshiped God monotheistically and believed in General Prophethood, and Abrahamic prophets. She was a scholar, ascetic, researcher, and monotheist,” said Ayatollah Javadi Amoli about the position of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.), in a message to the general session of the conference.


“There are differences between the brokers of knowledge and the theologian, commentator, and jurist. In the era of knowledge brokerage, Hazrat Khadija was a scholar, and worshiped God monotheistically before the Be’that of the Prophet Muhammad,” he said, emphasizing that Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) had learned from the Abrahamic prophets, according to the Arbaeen Website.


“Shouldn’t we introduce the character of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.)? Shouldn’t we follow our mother’s path? Isn’t it time for us, like Umm Al-Momenin, to put aside usury?” said Grand Ayatollah Javadi Amoli, emphasizing that we are the children of Hazrat Khadija (a.s.).


“Jahiliyyah (ignorance. The age of ignorance is an Islamic concept referring to the period of time and state of affairs in Arabia before the advent of Islam) had a culture of imitation and brokerage. But in this atmosphere, Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) was a monotheist and learned lady. We are proud to have such a mother Twelve Infallibles are her descendants,” said the source of emulation, stating that the Kafer (infidel) has no argument.


“In the age of ignorance, when usury was the official covenant, Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) rejected it. While she could reign with usury. She boycotted usury and changed the economy. In turn, our duty is to transform the culture of Jahiliyyah (ignorance) into a culture of rationality, to boycott the centers of virtual and real corruption, and to change the usurious economy to the Islamic economy. We have to go the path of our mother. Pilgrimage alone is not enough, and we must follow her,” Grand Ayatollah Javadi Amoli stated.


“In Islam, no perfection is conditional on gender. The mission is supported by the province, and the province that supports the mission is not conditional on gender. Imams’ knowledge is unlimited because they are connected to God, that is, an unlimited source, while they are limited. This is not error-prone. In such an atmosphere, Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) has walked this path. Perfection is jurisprudence, not emulation,” he continued.


“Why don’t we follow such a lady? We have an identity and Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is our mother. Why don’t we follow in our mother’s footsteps? Why are we drowning in corruption and usury? Hazrat Khadija (a.s.) is the mother of the believers in terms of culture, jurisprudence, chastity, social and economic,” Grand Ayatollah Javadi Amoli stated.

Thursday, 22 April 2021

In the fifth episode of the special internet program “Facing the Sky”, which is broadcast on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, pointing out that Ramadan is the month of God’s feast, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani Gilani stated, “After listening, reciting, thinking and researching, man can become acquainted with the Quran.”


“One of the problems of human society today is the lack of identity,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, saying that familiarity with the Quran causes a person to understand life correctly and reach his identity.


“The reason is that they did not know themselves and did not have a proper understanding of their real life,” he said, emphasizing that some people have lost their character in their lives and are moving in the direction of losing their identities.


“The Holy Quran talks about all aspects of human existence and gives a correct understanding of the truth of human beings,” Ayatollah Ramazani clarified.


“The Quran is a book of guidance and we should study and recite it with this in mind,” emphasized the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the description of the Holy Quran in Nahj al-Balagha and the view of Imam Ali (a.s.) on the Quran,


“No one associates with the Quran unless he is guided, knows himself better, and his misguidance reduced,” he noted, stating that the Quran is a speaker who never lies.


“The Holy Quran makes the man rich and needless,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that there is no one who communicates with the Quran and remains poor.


“Some people see this needlessness in being wealthy, but of course this wealth can be destroyed with the blink of an eye and it will be separated from the person after death,” the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly added.


“They are righteous action, adherence to morality, understanding, etc., which accompanies man in this world and the hereafter,” he stated, noting that none of wealth, power, and status will be buried with man.


“Everyone should seek healing from the Quran, and this is the heavenly book that has prevented deviation,” pointed out Ayatollah Ramazani, saying that the problem of human society is that they do not have a proper understanding of themselves, life and society, and for this reason, the path is deviated.


“The Quran is the only cure for difficulties and illnesses,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that we should seek help from the Quran in hardships.


“The Holy Quran is a cure for diseases such as Kufr (infidelity), Nifaq (hypocrisy), Sherk (polytheism), ignorance, disobedience, and misguidance. This heavenly book cures the worst and most dangerous diseases,” he stated.


“The Quran causes man to pay proper attention to the truth,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that we should try to ask God for our requests through the Quran.


“We should ask God to grant us success in listening to the Quran correctly, reciting it well, thinking well about its verses, and presenting ourselves to the Quran,” he clarified.


“We get Quranic attributes when we are more in line with the verses and content of the Holy Quran,” said Ayatollah Ramazani.

In the fourth episode of the special internet program “Facing the Sky”, which is broadcast on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani Gilani stated, “Familiarity and communication with the Quran is one of the important points that should be considered in the holy month of Ramadan.”


“According to Imam Sadiq (a.s.), “one who does not read 50 verses of the Quran daily, cannot consider himself a Muslim”,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that one should continue the connection with the Quran throughout the year.


“We must strive for the Quran to be manifested in us. We must understand the truths and teachings of the divine book and present ourselves to the Quran,” he said, stating that one should listen to the Quran carefully, recite it beautifully and contemplate on it.


“Those who present themselves to the Quran try to conform to the verses and demands of the Holy Book,” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.


“Because the word of God is in accordance with human Fitrah (innate nature), it affects the human soul,” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that the verses of the Quran should be read with understanding, comprehension, and attention.


“Those who are acquainted with the Quran will be guided in this world and the Hereafter will be supported by this divine book,” he stated.


“The Quran answers human questions: what are we, why did we come (to the world), how should we live and what is the way to happiness. The Quran invites man to real life,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that according to the Hadiths, the Quran will intercede for man on the Day Qiyamah.


“The Holy Quran does not consider human personality based on their wealth, power, and responsibility. Rather, it defines human personality by human faith, beliefs, and actions,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the fact that the Holy Quran introduces the true personality of man to him.


“With the right thinking and belief and morals and righteous deeds, we must be able to achieve spiritual growth,” he mentioned.


“The Quran is a book that gives the best advice to man and never deceives man,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the words of Imam Ali (a.s.) about the Quran.


“The holy month of Ramadan is the best opportunity to know the path that the Quran has specified. The path that, if properly known, will lead us to the destination of happiness,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in the end.

Fasting saves man from physical and mental harm: Ayatollah Ramazani

Fasting saves man from physical and mental harm: Ayatollah Ramazani

Wednesday, 21 April 2021

In the third episode of the special internet program “Facing the Sky”, which is broadcast on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, pointing out that if a person can have a correct understanding of fasting, he will definitely reach many positions, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani Gilani stated, “Fasting is divided into three types, the fast of the common people, the fast of elites, and the fast of special elites.”


“The fast of elites includes avoiding the sins of the limbs and joints, and the fast of special elites include abstaining from anything that diverts attention from God,” the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.)-World Assembly pointed out.


“Fasting is effective in relieving physical and mental injuries,” he added Stating that each type of fasting has its own effects and benefits.


“It has also been scientifically proven that fasting eliminates excess body material. Man must rest his stomach and body during the year,” Ayatollah Ramazani noted, pointing out that the hadiths emphasize the effect of fasting on human health.


“Man should benefit spiritually from the holy month of Ramadan,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that in the narrations, the reward of fasting in hot weather is emphasized.


“The Holy Quran states that fasting helps a person to understand spirituality and achieve peace,” noted Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that those who have benefited from the months of Rajab and Sha’ban.


“The month of Ramadan frees man from lies, slander and bad language,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, saying that fasting gives a person a sound soul.


“Sometimes backbiting and lying for one time, causes man efforts to be wasted and deviates him from the truth,” he mentioned.


“Sometimes a person creates a hijab for himself by his actions. This hijab is dark and is created by slander and backbiting,” Ayatollah Ramazani continued.


“Those who are fasting welcome the month of Ramadan, and when this month arrives, they are happy, and when it is over, they are sad,” he noted, pointing out that one should appreciate opportunities such as the holy month of Ramadan.


“If a person knows what is going on in the month of God’s feast, he asks God to make Ramadan the whole year,” Ayatollah Ramazani noted, saying that all the blessings of Ramadan come first to who fasts and then to his family, children and society.


“If a person achieves spiritual benefit and peace, his responsibility will be strengthened. Strengthening the responsibility makes a person have an effective presence for himself, family and society,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, emphasizing that we should ask God to benefit from the rituals of the holy month of Ramadan.

In a message, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly expressed his condolences on the pseudo-martyrdom demise of General “Mohammad Ali Haghbin”, one of Gilani commanders of the Resistance Front.


The message of condolence of Ayatollah Reza Ramazani is as follows:


“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran 2:156)


The demise of Sardar (General) Haghbin, the commander who conquered (the Syrian cities of) Nubl and al-Zahra, caused great grief and sorrow.


His firm determination on the resistance front, along with his good morals and devotion to the AhlulBayt (a.s.), was always famous among his colleagues and encouraged the steely wills to overthrow the ignorant enemy and the puppets of the international arrogance (the US) on the battlefield against ISIL.


Sardar Haghbin, as a commander of the Defenders of the Shrine, raised the flag of religiosity and belief of the brave sons of Mirza Kuchak Khan region, so that the history of Gilan Province once again adds a page to the devotion of Iranian people to AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the future generation will be proud of it.


While offering my condolences the martyrdom of this commander of the Resistance Front to the Commander-in-Chief, Grand Ayatollah Khamenei, I ask God to place him next to the high-ranking martyrs, especially Haj Qasim Soleimani, and to water him from the boundless sea of the love of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and to provide patience and forbearance to his honorable wife and beloved relatives.


He lived and passed away blessedly.

It should be mentioned that Sardar “Mohammad Ali Haghbin” was born in 1964 in one of the villages of Langarud city in Gilan province.


Until a few years ago, this Sardar of Islam was the commander of the Quds 16 Operative Division of Gilan. Then, he was appointed as an advisor to the commander of the IRGC ground forces and the commander of the central base of Imam Hussein (a.s.) of the IRGC ground forces.


With the beginning of the activities of terrorist and takfiri groups in Syria and the spread of ISIL, the Quds Division of Gilan, under the command of Sardar Haghbin, was assigned to fight the terrorists.


He was one of the commanders of the operation in which the Shiite cities of Nubl and Al-Zahra were liberated from terrorist siege after four years.


In this operation, Sardar martyr Haj Qassem Soleimani kissed the forehead of Sardar Haghbin, the commander of the operating division, and called the liberation operation of “Nubl” and “Al-Zahra” the conquest of Khyber, and said, “For four years, we were stuck behind this door.”


Sardar Haghbin passed away yesterday due to Covid-19 virus.
