Arbaeen, boycotted in media: Ahmadi Tabar

The meeting of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly with the Mawkeb owners and international activists of Arbaeen was held on Thursday, September 16, 2021, at the conference hall of the Assembly in the presence of Ayatollah Ramazani, the Secretary-General.

At the meeting, referring to the importance of Arbaeen, Hojat al-Islam Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar, the Deputy for Scientific and Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stated, “In the religious culture (of Shia), Arbaeen is of special importance. In the case of Arbaeen, there are various dimensions, including the emotional and Hosseini’s passion dimension, and in these cases, appropriate measures have been taken.”

“One of the aspects of the Arbaeen is the rational aspect. In Arbaeen, there is a great capacity to spread the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.). This capacity provides the basis for Reappearance (Imam Mahdi). This issue requires creating civilization and lifestyle that has been less worked on,” he continued.

“One of the issues to be considered is the development of Arbaeen in terms of time and space. Arbaeen is the universal community of believers. We must strive for it and make it an opportunity to lay the groundwork for a world government of believers. The method of Arbaeen globalization must be studied,” added the Deputy for Scientific and Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Arbaeen has been boycotted in the (international) media. Therefore, everyone who attends the Arbaeen ceremony should try to be a voice and media for that in order to present Arbaeen in the (international) media arena so that its boycott is broken,” said Ahmadi Tabar, referring to the necessity of addressing the media coverage of Arbaeen.

At the beginning of the meeting, referring to the importance of Arbaeen, Hojat al-Islam Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar, the Deputy for Scientific and Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stated, “In the religious culture (of Shia), Arbaeen is of special importance.

“Arbaeen has been boycotted in the (international) media. Therefore, everyone who attends the Arbaeen ceremony should try to be a voice and media for that in order to present Arbaeen in the (international) media arena so that its boycott is broken,” he continued.

Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, continued at the meeting, “Arbaeen has several capacities, of which we can mention the emotional connection as its huge capacity. There is no more emotional phenomenon than the tragic event of Karbala. So that it creates an internal revolution. The other dimension of Arbaeen is its moral and behavioral dimension.”

“These capacities need more attention. They have intellectual, educational, social, and political dimensions and should not be neglected,” he stated, considering it necessary to pay attention to the capacities of Arbaeen.

The representative of the Supreme Leader in the Hajj and pilgrimage affairs

In another part of the meeting, referring to the characteristics of Arbaeen, Hojat al-Islam Abdolfattah Nawab, the representative of the Supreme Leader in Hajj pilgrimage affairs, stated, “Arbeen is a great opportunity. Because there are many walks in the world. But the Arbaeen pilgrimage path is a focal point for awakening everyone.”

“Arbaeen lovers are not just Shiites. Sunnis and Christians were present in Arbaeen Walk. If it weren’t for the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, the Arbaeen Walk would be international (again this year),” he continued.

Then in the meeting, Hojat al-Islam Rafed Al-Tamimi, the head of the Warith al-Anbia Institute, said, “The Arbaeen pilgrimage has many effects on the Iraqi and non-Iraqi political arenas. The enemies of Islam and Shia are upset by the Arbaeen pilgrimage.”

“Global Arrogance, especially in recent years, has sought to divide the nations of Iran and Iraq. They are afraid of the Arbaeen pilgrimage. The Arbaeen pilgrimage showed that the nations of the two countries are united and efforts should be made to strengthen this unity,” he emphasized.

In the final part of the meeting, Arbaeen activists from various Mawkeb and institutions introduced themselves and their activities. Also, a decision was made to form the Arbaeen Mawkebs Council in the international arena.

To make content produced appealing to audience, we need to know requirements of cyberspace: Ahmadi Tabar

Appreciating the attendance of cyberspace activists in the international arena in this meeting, the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly stated, “Cyberspace is one of the requirements that must be addressed alongside real space.”

“In the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, some books have been translated into more than 60 languages. But the translation of some books was stopped, and translators were asked to translate books with standard ideas, and those are independent of place and time. Therefore, the products of the assembly are published based on the questions and requirements,” stated Hojat al-Islam Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar, referring to the new policy of the Assembly in line with the activities of cyberspace.

“Among the activities of the General Directorate of Studies and Research of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, is identifying the situations of the audience. Because it is necessary to identify the situation of Shiites in the world through monitoring and observation, and knowing the latest status of our audience. Also, the General Directorate of Studies and Research of the Assembly performs the work of a research institute and a think tank,” he added.

“We held many meetings with experts about the activities of the Assembly in cyberspace. The serious tasks of the General Directorate of Cyberspace are observation, monitoring, and polling, and based on their results, the content will be produced. Content production will also be based on specific requirements and formats. The third task of the General Directorate of Cyberspace is to set up a human and media network,” said the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on the Assembly’s efforts to work in cyberspace.

“In order for the produced content to be attractive and liked by the audience, we must know the requirements of cyberspace,” he added, emphasizing the need for officials and managers to be familiar with the media and to have media literacy.

“If we do not have global activities and thoughts, we cannot have a message for the world,” Ahmadi Tabar stated.

“We seek to train manpower for Shiites at the level of leadership, cultural management, and making institutions and networks. In this regard, we have established the House of Africa, the House of Pakistan, the House of India, and the House of Azerbaijan,” he said, regarding the other activities of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

 

In the end, emphasizing education and the necessity of thinking, the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly introduced the goal as producing magnificent works worthy of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).

At the beginning of the ceremony, while welcoming the participants, Hassan SadraI Aref, the head of the General Department of Cyberspace of the Assembly, gave a brief explanation about the meeting “Requirements of International Activity in Cyberspace; with the aim of consulting and synergy of professors, veterans and activists in this field”. Then, participants expressed their views.

Among the suggestions of cyberspace activists in the international arena who participated in this meeting were: paying attention to the needs of the audience, needs assessment and audience recognition, utilizing the capacities of the Assembly in the world, especially for the organizing, training and empowering preachers and affiliated persons, cooperation with followers of other religions and sects, the need to address the ethical issues in Islam and the introduction of the moral school of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in cyberspace, the need to localize the content produced and to take into account the tastes of the audience, using the successful experiences of others, cooperation with foreigners residing in Qom, the need for coordination, concentration and cohesion of forces active in cyberspace and creating a connecting link between media managers, policy-making and facilitator of the Assembly and identification of new platforms of activity in cyberspace, connection with artists and members of the media working in the international religious arena, launching a network of cultural-virtual missionaries and emphasizing on holding these meetings and creating specialized working groups.

launching digital library in the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly

At the beginning of the meeting, referring to the situation of Shiites in the world, Hojat al-Islam Sayed Mohammad Reza Ale Ayyub, Director General of Cultural Services and Publications of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, said, “The situation in the Shiite and the Islamic world requires us to follow the issues of different countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Tunisia and Algeria, because the developments in these countries are our current issues. We have good news that the release of Sheikh Zakzaky is one of them.”

“Recently, in the General Directorate of Cultural Services and Publications of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, we have taken steps to establish cultural centers in countries such as Iraq, the Netherlands, Tunisia and Algeria. Also, steps have been taken to establish women’s centers in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon,” he continued.

“In this general office, we are looking to launch a digital library, to be a reference for the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school. Also, we are looking to use the capacity of cultural centers in the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly,” added the Director General of Cultural Services and Publications of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

Research on how to present lifestyle of AhlulBayt (a.s.) to world

Following the meeting, referring to the approach of the Research Office of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Hojat al-Islam Mahdi Farmanian, Director General of Studies and Research of the Assembly, stated, “This office is looking for some grand strategies in order to offer the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) to the world. The question that arises is how to present the lifestyle of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) to the world, and in this regard, we welcome the proposed ideas. People seek to preserve their material life in the manner of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).”

“We seek to present five slogans as the slogans of the Research Office of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly. To promote the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.), the Shiites must go from denial to proof, from negative to affirmative method, from extremism to balance, from lack of connection to interaction, and from feeling to reason,” he continued.

“In the research office of the World Assembly of Ahl al-Bayt (AS), we support the submitted projects as much as possible,” noted the Director General of Studies and Research of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

Cyberspace has the most audience to convey a message

Also, Hassan Sadrai Aref, the head of the General Department of Cyberspace of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said in the meeting of cultural centers affiliated to the assembly, “A few days have passed since Eid al-Ghadir. It is our mission to preserve and promote what has become a Shiite slogan.”

“Today, cyberspace has the most popular audience to convey a message. This environment has affected our spiritual and material life. So that we are connected to cyberspace from morning to night,” he continued.

“The General Department of Cyberspace of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly seeks to create a database of international actors in cyberspace in order to better reflect the message of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in today's world,” Sadrai Aref pointed out.

The importance of the manpower training for the success of missionaries

In another part of the meeting, referring to the need to train missionaries, Hojat al-Islam Valiullah Madanipour, head of the General Department of Education of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, said, “Preachers must learn cultural management in order to work coherently in their countries, and the General Department of Education of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly can serve foreign missionaries in this regard.”

“In order to be effective in their own countries, missionaries must set up training offices. Because manpower training is also one of the tasks of the General Department of Education of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly,” he continued.

“The General Directorate is ready to train and provide training to people from different countries, and has a plan for synergy in this area,” added the head of the General Department of Education of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

The need for a network of Shiite jurists to defend Shiites rights in the world

In the final part of the meeting of cultural centers affiliated to the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the month of Muharram, Hojat al-Islam Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar, the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the Assembly stated, “The month of Muharram is coming, a month which has special features. The revival of the religion of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) is through Ashura and Karbala. Apparently, the incident of Ashura is an incident that happened in a day and a half, in which the two groups faced each other, and that, one group lost everything. On the surface, such an incident should be forgotten. But as time goes on, the Ashura incident becomes more vivid and effective than before. The secret of this issue is the four elements that have made Ashura last and effective.”

“The first element for the effectiveness of Ashura incident, is the Martyrdom. When man sacrifices his everything in the way of God, the reward of martyrdom will be with Him Almighty. Throughout history, the martyrs have been influenced by their sincerity. The element for the survival of Ashura throughout the history, is the element of Captivity, which destroyed the evil propaganda and clarified the truth. The third element for effectiveness of Ashura, which was emphasized by the infallible Imams (a.s.), is the element of Pilgrimage. The AhlulBayt (a.s.) emphasized that we should pilgrimage Karbala. In the hadiths, the pilgrimage of Imam Hussein (a.s.) is mentioned as the best deeds, and for it, many worldly and otherworldly rewards are stated. The fourth element for the survival of Ashura throughout the history, is Mourning and mentioning the event. Ashura is not just a day and a place, but is a struggle between right and wrong, and an eternal struggle in history,” he continued.

“Today we have spaces and situations, and we must use them to make the most effort and hold the best ceremonies. In this regard, we can use cyberspace. During the holy month of Ramadan, we had 3,000 virtual Minbar (pulpits) for various human societies by non-Iranian scholars,” added the deputy for scientific and cultural affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“A network of Shiite jurists is needed to defend the rights of Shiites around the world, and creating such a network should be on the agenda. The policy of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is to protect the Shiites,” said Ahmadi Tabar, referring to the need to defend the rights of Shiites in the world.

“We built houses for different nationalities. In this regard, the “House of Africa” has been launched, and we are setting up the “House of Afghanistan”. Regarding the identification of the Shiites, no serious work has been done in the past in the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly. Since last year, we have taken steps in this regard to accurately identify the situation of the world’s Shiites. In this regard, some work has been done, but it is not complete. Shiites live in 148 countries, and the status of each community must be determined,” he continued.

“We no longer have a plan to publish books widely in Iran. We are looking to publish the books of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in other countries. All proper contents available in cyberspace has been collected in a portal called “Rahnama” in 47 languages and all followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) can use it,” added the deputy for scientific and cultural of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“For the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school, a human network of followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and a media network must be created. Art tools should also be used to promote the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.),” said Ahmadi Tabar, referring to the need for creating a network of Shiites.

“The digital library of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly has not been launched yet. But we anticipate that this library will be available to people around the world in 2021. In this library, all the works that have been written about Shiites throughout history in different languages will be available to the public,” he mentioned.

Suggestions of the heads of the Cultural Centers affiliated to the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly

In a meeting with the directors of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the heads of the Cultural Centers affiliated to the Assembly presented suggestions including: Establishment of an international law institute to defend the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school entitled “Defense of Human Rights”, prevent divisive actions in order not to give excuses to the enemies to attack the Shiites, strengthening the relationship between the cultural centers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.)
