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?”

Afghanistan, priority to be supported by AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly: Moinian

Afghanistan, priority to be supported by AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly: Moinian

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 Results”, 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.

At the beginning of the meeting, referring to the fact that God appointed successors for the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), who are the Infallible Imams (a.s.) including Imam Mahdi (a.s.), in order for the guidance line of the humanity not be lost, Hojat al-Islam Mohammad Ali Moinian, Director-General of Asia-Pacific Affairs of the Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “These nobles are in fact the successors of the Last Prophet (p.b.u.h) until the Day of Judgment, and their most important duty is to protect the divine religion.”

“In their time, the duty of infallible Imams (a.s.) were protecting this religion which with great difficulty was presented to the people by the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h). In his time, according to the time and place conditions, every Imam performed his duty in the best way,” he added.

“In the time of Imam Hussain (a.s.), the situation had changed in a way that the appearances of Islam were fading, and the place of good and wrong was changed. Especially after the death of Muawiyah, when Yazid came to power, the spread of evil and ugliness in society, was rapid. It got to the point where Imam Hussein (a.s.) said, “There is nothing left of Islam and only one name remains.” In such an atmosphere, the Imam’s duty was to protect the religion of God. Imam Hussain (a.s.) said, “If the survival of this religion is achieved by killing me, O swords! embrace me”, said Moinian about the era of Imam Hussain (a.s.).

“Today, we owe the religion that reached us, to the blood of the martyrs,” he added.

“The most important message of the uprising of Imam Hussain (a.s.) is enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. In his will, Imam Hussain (a.s.) wrote, “I rose to revive enjoining the good and forbidding the bad, in order to reform the Ummah of my grandfather, Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h)”; the Ummah that was on the verge of annihilation,” said the Director-General of Asia-Pacific Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the two important messages and consequences of the movement of Imam Hussain (a.s.).

“One of the most important lessons we learn from Ashura culture is enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. But today, unfortunately, in Islamic societies, they are not observed. Some even dare to commit an ugly act openly without fear of anyone. This is while enjoining the good and forbidding the evil is a social Wajib and the duty of every human being. Because the result of neglecting them is the increase of sin and ugliness in society,” he stressed.

“If one achieves true faith, the real fruit of it is emigration and struggle in the way of God. Imam Hussain (a.s.) migrated and struggled to preserve the religion and the survival of Islam,” Moinian said, considering the second message of the movement of Imam Hussein (a.s.) as emigration and struggle in the way of God, referring to a verse of the Holy Quran.

“The minor migration of Imam Hussain (a.s.) was from Medina to Mecca to avoid the allegiance of Yazd. Major migration is related to the human soul, and migration from anything other than God to God,” he said, stating that migration and struggle have two physical and spiritual aspects.

“The minor jihad was the battle that brought the Imam and his companions to the battlefield, and until the last moment of their lives, their faith and will were not damaged. But the major jihad means the battle against carnal desires,” asserted the Director-General of the Asia-Pacific affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Today, we must also learn from the message of Imam Hussain (a.s.),” he stressed.

“About three decades ago, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly was established. Headquartered in Tehran, it has 700 members from prominent figures, Ulama, university professors and elites around the world in its branches, which meet every 4 years under the title of General Assembly,” said Moinian in the second part of his speech, about the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“One of the priorities of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is to pay special attention to neighboring countries, which have the largest population of followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and Shiites. In the meantime, it can be said that Afghanistan is among the top support priorities of this forum. Of the 700 key members of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, about 20 are from Afghanistan, including Hojat al-Islam Hosseini Mazari, head of the Tebyan Center for Socio-Cultural Activities, who attends general assemblies meetings and is influential,” he mentioned.

“Hojat al-Islam Hossaini Mazari works very powerful in the field of real activities as well as media. We appreciate his efforts,” said the Director-General of Asia-Pacific Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“The appropriate measures have been taken so far by some of our members and the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan. All efforts and meetings are made to avoid endangering the Shiite community and preserving its interests,” he said by referring to the current situation in Afghanistan, stating that the most important concern of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is to defend the unity of the community of followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) and Shiites.

“The future of Afghanistan’s political issues is not in our agenda in AhlulBayt (a.s.) Word Assembly. Because we are not politicians and our scope of work does not include political issues. But we pay attention to the Shiite, lovers, and followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) communities. All our efforts, the Shiite Ulama and elders of Afghanistan, are to talk to the people so that, God forbid, the situation in Afghanistan does not lead to ethnic-tribal and religious conflicts,” Moinian clarified.

“God willing, in the near future, we will witness the establishment of lasting peace and security in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, and the honor and pride of all the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in all parts of the world,” he expressed hope.

“Global Coalition of NGOs for Peace” Conference in Tehran

“Global Coalition of NGOs for Peace” Conference in Tehran

On the occasion of International Day of Peace, with the participation of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the International Conference “Global Coalition of NGOs for Peace, Justice, and Convergence of Nations” will be held virtually in Tehran on Saturday and Sunday, September 18 and 19, 2021.

Emphasizing that peace is appropriate and desirable when it is based on justice, Davood Ameri, Secretary-General of the Islamic World Peace Forum, said, “For a variety of reasons, the world today faces challenges in the areas of peace, security, poverty, the environment, and the like, which governments alone cannot fully and successfully address.”

“Through the cooperation of the people, and with the government and the private sector, NGOs in many areas provide the basis for the development and growth of society. In fact, as civic institutions, they are an intermediary between the government and the people, and in this way form an important part of the people’s participation in the development of society,” he added.

“Explaining the scientific, legal, and law foundations of the formation of non-governmental organizations and explaining the role and position of these organizations in achieving peace, justice, and integration of nations is one of the objectives of this conference,” he continued.

“Programs aimed at promoting the discourse of peace and justice in the domestic and international dimensions include explaining the necessities and requirements for considering NGOs in the world, producing conceptual literature on NGOs and developing global peace and justice, and drawing the attention of the elites and media to NGOs in domestically and internationally,” clarified the Secretary-General of the Islamic World Peace Forum on the long-term plans of his institute.

“The conference will be attended by domestic and foreign experts in five sections: NGOs; Theoretical foundations and functions, the role of NGOs in establishing world peace and justice and combating oppression, NGOs and their relationship with powers and governments, public diplomacy and NGOs, and the soft power of non-governmental and societies. The Conference “Global Coalition of NGOs for Peace, Justice, and Convergence of Nations” will be pursued in five phases in 2021 and 2022 to lay the groundwork for this global coalition,” he said.

Intl. Webinar “The of Imam Sajjad’s Role in Consolidating Islam Foundations”

Intl. Webinar “The of Imam Sajjad’s Role in Consolidating Islam Foundations”

The International webinar entitled “The of Imam Sajjad’s Role in Consolidating Islam Foundations” was held by the International Ashura Foundation with the cooperation of the United Ummah Center, in which the elites of scholars and thinkers of the Islamic world and Western countries participated.

After reciting the verses of the Holy Quran, while welcoming the speakers and listeners of this virtual meeting, in his opening remarks, Sayed Fadi al-Sayed, the director of United Ummah Center, on the role of Imam Zin al-Abedin (a.s.) from different dimensions said, “Despite the savagery and oppression of the Umayyads and Yazid against the AhlulBayt (a.s.), martyring the Imam Hussain (a.s.) and his companions, and taking the family of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) as prisoners, by his revealing statements and speeches, Imam Sajjad (a.s.) exposed the criminal nature of the corrupt Umayyad family and introduced their claims as false, hypocritical and contrary to the Quran and the standards of Islam. This Imam also showed the philosophy of the uprising of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and the teachings and thoughts of his ancestors and fathers.”

“Imam Hussain (a.s.) continued and took on the path of his grandfather, the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), in guiding the people,” he argued.

Sayed Fadi al-Sayed also spoke about the role of mourning, sorrow, and grief and crying over the sufferings of Imam Hussain (a.s.).

Following this webinar, Ayatollah Mohammad Hassan Akhtari, the head of the International Ashura Foundation, spoke on the role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.).“This Imam implemented the concept of reform in his grandfather’s Ummah from a scientific, intellectual, and doctrinal point of view. He showed the path of guidance and absolute worship of God. The concepts, teachings, and sermons of Imam Sajjad (a.s.), including Risalah al-Huquq and the complete Al-Sahifa al-Sajjadiyya, can be considered as a moral and human instruction and charter that lead to human felicity in this world and the hereafter,” he said.

“Risalah al-Huquq Imam Sajjad (a.s.) is the most progressive legal charter in the world that is also applicable in our time. This charter can be considered as a legal guide and charter for governments and human societies. In this regard, symposiums should be held to show the dimensions and role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) in spreading the teachings of Islam and how to deal with corrupt rulers,” emphasized the Chairman of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

Following the webinar, Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sharif, one of the preachers and scholars of Saudi Arabia from Riyadh spoke on the virtues of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) according to authentic Sunni books. “The virtues of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), especially Imam Sajjad (a.s.), are present in the labyrinth of historical documents and narration books, as well as in the works of many poets. Among them is the Farazdaq, the great poet. In his ode, he has eternal words on the virtues of Imam Sajjad (a.s.),” he stressed.

“The movement of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), their virtues, and the legitimacy of their path can be a good model for the world. All Sunnis respect the family of AhlulBayt (a.s.), and the enmity of those who claim to be Sunni and follow the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), with the Ahl al-Bayt (a.s.), or their hostile stances, is for divisive and political purposes. Such people falsely identify themselves as Sunnis. Because the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) repeatedly emphasized the virtues and love for his family, and whoever claims to follow the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), should love his AhlulBayt (a.s.), and follow them,” al-Sharif continued.

Dr. Sheikh, Mohammad Al-Zu’bi, another speaker of this virtual meeting, spoke on love for the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in the Quran and Sunnah. Citing the hadith of Thaqalayn narrated from the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), he emphasized, “The Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) always advised his Ummah that love for the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is love for the Prophet (p.b.u.h), and everyone should follow the AhlulBayt (a.s.).”

“Although Farazdaq was apparently one of the poets of the Umayyad court, he had the love of AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the family of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) in his heart, and despite the suffocating conditions of the people of the time, he bravely expressed the legitimacy of Ahl al-Bayt (a.s.) with his poems,” he said, explaining the characteristics of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) which is stated in the famous ode of Farazdaq.

“Love for the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is in the hearts of all Muslims, including the Sunnis. Because Imam Hussain and the AhlulBayt (a.s.) are not only for Shiites or Sunnis, but the movement of Imam Hussain (a.s.) is human-global uprising and movement and it has been and will be immortal and instructive in all times,” the Sunni scholar emphasized.

Then, Ms. Isabel Barai, Vice President of the Islamic Council of Belgium, and one of the candidates for the House of Representatives of the country spoke on the role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) and the Infallible Imams (a.s.) in expressing Islamic and human values and moral models. “Despite all the problems, pressures, and difficult conditions, Imam Sajjad (a.s.) did not give up his mission to spread the values. Rather, with his sermons, he exposed the oppression against the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and expressed the philosophy of the revolution of Imam Hussain (a.s.), and established a moral and mystical school,” she emphasized.

“By telling the truth to the people and creating an ethical and spiritual school, he created one of the best intellectual and spiritual systems. He taught the oppressed method, skill, and technique of defending the truth,” she emphasized, referring to the role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) after the Ashura event, in Levant, Kufa, and Medina.

“All human beings can learn the lesson of honorable life from Imam Sajjad (a.s.) and how to regulate their relationship with themselves and their God,” the European thinker concluded.

Following the meeting, Ms. Jumaneh Tananeh, a prominent Australian journalist, said, “The leadership role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) in informing about the Karbala event and telling the truth is very effective, historical and lasting. Because he said the unspoken truth, proved the legitimacy of Imam Hussain (a.s.) movement, strengthened the foundations of the Imamate, and shook the foundations of the tyrannical government. Therefore, his actions became very influential, historic, and lasting.”

“By telling the truth, and using propagation methods, in addition to revealing the tragedy of Karbala and exposing the crimes of the Yazid, Imam Sajjad (a.s.) shook the foundations of the Umayyad monarchy and government and created psychological and political unrest in the structure of Yazid’s government. The brave and revealing words of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) against the oppression and misleading ideas of the Umayyads, proved the legitimacy of his movement,” the researcher continued.

At the end of her speech, referring to the revealing method of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) in his sermons in Kufa and Levant, Ms. Tananeh said, “This method shook the pillars of the oppressors’ government, and aroused the thoughts and hearts of the people and turned them against Yazid and the ruling system of the Umayyads. Because the meanings of Imam Sajjad’s (a.s.) eloquent and profound sermons, which were full of human, intellectual, and educational feelings, show what is the knowledge status and religious authority of the Infallible Imams (a.s.).”

Referring to Sahifa Sajjadiyya, she considered its educational and propagation themes as important sources to fill the spiritual void of society.

Continuing the program, referring to the position of humility from the point of view of Imam Sajjad (a.s.), and giving a brief overview of the life, and practical and theoretical life of Imam Sajjad (a.s.), Sheikh Mohammad Kiza Musa, head of the Al-Abbas Institute in Tanzania, said, “The virtue of humility is highly emphasized in the Quran, the hadiths of the Prophet Muhamad (p.b.u.h) and the sayings of the infallible Imams (a.s.). By delivering his sermons, words, and speeches, Imam Sajjad (a.s.) has repeatedly expressed humility and devotion to God in his eloquent and mystical speeches, and it can be considered a practical model for humanity.”

Then, Sayed Taher Al-Hashemi, a member of the General Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and the head of the Sadat Union in the Egyptian province of Bahira, said, “Imam Sajjad (a.s.) undertook a great mission which was similar to the mission of the divine prophets and messengers. He exposed the sinister goals of Yazid and the ruling system of oppression and exposed their nature.”

“With his prayers and supplications, Imam Sajjad (a.s.) preserved the true identity of Islam. In those suffocating circumstances, he considered prayer as a means to consolidate Islam, and by compiling his Risalah al-Huquq, he distinguished between purity from ugliness and oppression from the truth,” he stated.

“Prayer is a spiritual force hidden within man and human societies and can connect the human mind and heart to the divine world. Because according to the hadith, “Prayer is the central point of worship” and can ensure the felicity of human society. Whoever becomes accustomed to prayer, his morals and behavior will be beautiful. Prayer can protect the individual, family, and society from deviations and vices. All these cases are repeated in Sahifa Sajjadiyya. By reciting the Sahifa Sajjadiyya and the supplications of Imam Sajjad (a.s.), the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and other people, including the followers of the Sufism, should be adorned with moral and spiritual virtues and rituals, and put it as a stronghold against mental and psychological problems to grow spirituality and purity in human beings. Also, Imam Sajjad’s (a.s.) Risalah al-Huquq should be considered as instruction and way of life for the family and society,” Al-Hashemi said.

Then in the webinar, comparing the impact of the Ashura event on the past and present, Sheikh Haidar al-Muhajer, an Islamic scholar from Belgium, emphasized, “Lessons can be learned from the event of Karbala and the role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) in it. Because Imam Sajjad’s (a.s.) educational and reformist movements and actions are not less than the importance of Imam Hussain (a.s.) movement.”

“The school of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) is the school of patience and resistance and can be a model for any period and any time. In political, economic, and social affairs, man can learn wisdom from it,” he said.

“The oppressed nations of Lebanon, Yemen, and Palestine who have risen against the tyranny and aggression, in spite of difficulties, lack of facilities and support, economic pressures, sieges, and all-out sanctions, were able to resist the evil forces. Because they considered Imam Hussain (a.s.), Imam Sajjad (a.s.), and Lady Zainab (a.s.) as their role models,” continued the Belgian Islamic researcher.

“Imam Sajjad (a.s.) is the source of moral and human values that teach human beings stability and resistance against corrupt rulers,” he said in the end.

Following the virtual session, referring to the dimensions, moral, value and intellectual meanings of Imam Hussain (a.s.), Mohammad Mawali, a Syrian journalist, in his speech emphasized, “Imam Hussain (a.s.) is a jihadi leader who, through his blessed uprising, saved the man from ignorance and submission to falsehood.”

“The infallible Imams (a.s.) showed the truth, and taught man how to stand and resist oppression, and by cultivating the soul, and attain moral and human virtues, resist widespread deviations in the living environment,” he said, referring to the historical role of Imam Sajjad (a.s.) in the political struggle, and the spread of spirituality and moral virtues.

At the end of his speech, calling for intellectual and economic transformation in human societies, he emphasized, “Imam Sajjad (a.s.) can be considered a suitable model for this development.”
