In EU countries, religious centers become most important medical centers for Covid patients: AhlulBayt University President

In EU countries, religious centers become most important medical centers for Covid patients: AhlulBayt University President

In the conference “Religion, Health, and Humanitarian Aid” which was held on Sunday, July 18, 2021, at the International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.), Hojat al-Islam Dr. Saeed Jazari Ma’moui said, “Last September, the issue was first debated in the Vatican Cardinal Council, and the outbreak of Covid-19 sparked a series of debates, requiring a synergy between religious and health centers.”

“In June 2020, health centers and nursing homes in Italy, France, and Portugal were overcrowded with malignant patients. With the Pope’s message, the church doors were opened for the first time to accommodate Covid-19 patients to help the health organizations,” added the President of AhlulBayt (a.s.) University.

“At the Vatican Cardinal Council, it was emphasized that there is a relationship between religion and health, and that this relationship must be brought to the field. This is an opportunity for the church to introduce people to religious structures. These meetings were successful and now in various cities in Italy and France, religious centers have become the most important medical centers for Covid-19 patient,” he added.

Appreciating the Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), the deputy for International Affairs of AhlulBayt (a.s.) University, and the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in holding the conference “Religion, Health and Humanitarian Aid”, Dr. Jazari Mamoui expressed hope that this path will continue.

Saying that Ayatollah Ramazani, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, has had more than two decades of experience in dealing closely with the academic and religious centers in the West, the President of the University of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) stated, “The experience of cooperation between scientific, medical, health and health centers with religious centers is very valuable for holding this conference.”

“Thanks to the blessed name of AhlulBayt (a.s.), this organization has the mission of providing scientific and cultural service to the devotees of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) from all over the world,” said Dr. Jazari, referring to the activities of the International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.).

“Students of AhlulBayt (a.s.) International University are from foreign countries. The university has faculties of engineering, humanities, law, social sciences, Islamic studies, the Center for Women’s Studies, and the Center for Foreign Languages,” he added.

Today we need religion, health institutions/ Religion guarantee for human health: Ayatollah Ramazani

Today we need religion, health institutions/ Religion guarantee for human health: Ayatollah Ramazani

In the conference “Religion, Health, and Humanitarian Aid” which was held on Sunday, July 18, 2021, at the International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.), Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, while appreciating the organizers, called for the invitation of scientists in various fields, scientific discussions and called for the international dimension of the conference to be more highlighted.

While condoling the martyrdom of Imam Baqer (a.s.), the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “Among the Imams (a.s.), the scholarly character of Imam Baqer (a.s.) provided the ground for a great university, in which he trained students and various enthusiasts in various fields. The first ten days of Dhuʻl-Hijjah are the stage of reaching the perfection of the conduct of the people of knowledge. These are the days when the man can reflect on his true self.”

“Health comes from perfection, which can be related to both the body and the soul. If we examine different areas related to humans, we will reach this relationship,” he said, referring to the theme of the conference “Religion, Health and Humanitarian Aid”, describing it as important.

“In recent centuries in the West, there has been a pessimistic approach to religion. Some have claimed that there is no connection between religion and truth and that religion is not real and, as Ayatollah Motahhari quoted from them, it is superstitious,” stated the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.

“Herbert Spencer and Auguste Comte, and some other Western scholars, consider ignorance as to the cause of worship and inclination towards religion. The attitude of these people towards religion has nothing to do with spirituality, mysticism, and health. Even today, spirituality is propagated without revelatory religion and God. In this pessimistic view, religion has nothing to do with physical and mental health and is in conflict with it,” Ayatollah Ramazani continued.

“According to the late Ayatollah Motahhari, the prophets were sent to invite mankind to worship God. Worship is one of the inner and innate tendencies of human beings. The prophets were sent to call humanity to the true Deity, to distinguish the true Deity from the false Deity,” he said, pointing out that there is no era in human history when religion and God have not been mentioned.

“Concerning humans, there are three types of definitions: At first view, man is limited to sense and matter, the second view is the view of the rational man, and the third view is that of the intuitive human being. Some thinkers also believe that man has two realms of matter and the realm of meaning,” added Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that knowing about the man and his existential areas is one of the most important points that should be analyzed today.

“Man must be able to manage himself accurately with rational and revelatory management,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Religion has a duty to provide a program to regulate and balance the realms of matter and meaning. With this view on religion, each of these terms finds its own place. When we look at religion from this perspective, religion is responsible for modifying the health of the body as well as modifying the health of the human soul and mind,” he said, stating that the field of matter and the field of meaning should be examined.

“If the truth of religion, which is related to the truth of human life and Fitra, is introduced, humanity, today’s generation and the young generation of society will fall in love with religion and its truth, and this issue depends on what discourse and literature we use to introduce religion. There is definitely no violence in Islam, but this religion is full of mercy and love. Like weeds, Some people try to prevent the deepening of the truth of religion and we must stand against these people” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.

“In a classification, Imam Ali (a.s.) classified the sciences into four branches: ‘Jurisprudence is for religion, medicine, for the treatment of diseases of the body, grammar, for the protection of language from error, and astronomy for the knowledge of time.’ This classification shows the importance of health science and being aware of the sciences of the time,” said the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.

“Today, many books and narrations have been written about the health of the body, for example, Imam Ali (a.s.) told Imam Hassan (a.s.), ‘Son! Shall I not teach you four tips to help you get rid of medicine?’ Imam Hassan replied, ‘Yes, Amir al-Mu'minin!’ Imam Ali said, ‘Do not sit at the table, except when you are hungry and do not get up from the table, except when you still want to eat; chew the food completely; and Go to the bathroom before going to bed. If you apply these four tips, you will not need medicine’,” he added.

“In the developed world, people have achieved many things in life welfare affairs and science. But anxiety, stress, depression and suffering from lack of identity are more prevalent in these countries than in developing countries,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to research and statistics published in Western countries on physical and mental health.

“Man needs the peace that comes from within him and his nature. If peace comes from within human nature, it will be lasting,” he added.

“Today we need religious and health institutions. Religion and health should be scientifically defined and compiled in textbooks, at different levels. Religion and health should also be addressed in different ways in the arts,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“If we consider the Quranic verses and the hadiths carefully, we will find that religion considers itself responsible for human health, and wants to guide human beings in a way that leads them to enjoy the health of body and soul,” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.

“In one of his fatwas, Imam Khomeini said, ‘It is Haram to consume anything that harms the human body.’ That is, religion deals directly and indirectly with health,” said the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts, stating that human beings are not allowed to harm their bodies, and maintaining health is obligatory.

“Religion should not be introduced to today’s society dogmatically and stereotypically. Today’s human society, especially in the international arena, if become acquainted with the moral, mystical, rational and other dimensions of religion, the winner of the field will surely be the one who offers the best thought,” said Ayatollah Ramazani in the end.

Attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul has no rational, religious justification: Tavakoli

Attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul has no rational, religious justification: Tavakoli

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


In the meeting, referring to the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, Tavakoli, the principal of the high school said, “Terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul has no rational, religious justification in any religion. In this terrorist attack, about 85 fasting people were martyred in the holy month. They were the pioneers of science and knowledge and were promising a better tomorrow for Afghanistan. With white scarves, they were a symbol of peace and purity. But they rushed to their god to complain about the situation of the most oppressed people in this land.”


“The martyrs of the Kabul terrorist attack were those who, according to the religious teachings and orders of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), educating them is a religious duty. They had no sin but obedience to the command of the Prophet (p.b.u.h). The Kabul terrorist attack was the saddest of its kind, and the least recurring in the history of ongoing violence in Afghanistan. The attack shocked the world, and confused today’s sleeping people across the globe from the cruelty of the terrorists,” she continued.


“To heal the grief of the families of the martyrs of the Kabul terrorist attack, help was provided by compatriots from different parts of Afghanistan and the world, the offices of Grand Sources of Emulation, institutions, and charities, and the friendly and neighboring country, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the treatment of the injured began. Everyone, in turn, addressed some of the problems, trying to take the burden off a loved one, and alleviate the grief of another loved one,” added the principal of the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul.


“The management of Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul strongly condemns the terrorist attack on this school, and wishes that practical measures be taken against such targeted attacks as soon as possible,” Tavakoli pointed out.


It should be mentioned that on the evening of Saturday, May 8, 2021, 85 people were martyred and more than 150 were injured in three consecutive explosions in front of Sayed al-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul (Dasht-e Barchi). The bombings took place in the 13th security district west of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. As the school closed and students left, a Toyota Corolla car bomb exploded at the entrance to a clinic connected to the school. Then, as the students were fleeing, two landmines exploded in their path.

Perpetrators of Kabul terrorist attack must be identified: Alemi Balkhi

Perpetrators of Kabul terrorist attack must be identified: Alemi Balkhi

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


At the meeting, referring to the martyrs of the Kabul terrorist incident, Seyyed Hossein Alemi Balkhi, former Minister of Refugees of Afghanistan and a member of the General Assembly of the Ahl al-Bayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “The martyrs of this terrorist attack are different from the martyrs of other attacks. Because they were from a religious community that lived in the same area. In this attack, a certain religious group was attacked. As the second fact about the Kabul terrorist attack, its target was children under the age of 18, between the ages of 7 and 16. The attack killed 90 students, and injured more than 250.”


“In the terrorist attack in Kabul, some people went missing, and their fate is not known whether they were martyred or fell into the hands of those who sought to exploit the attack. Another characteristic of this incident was that no group specifically claimed responsibility for it. The government claimed that the perpetrator of this terrorist attack was the Taliban. But the Taliban accused the Afghan government of carrying out the attack. The government argued that because the Taliban had no achievement on the battlefield, it attacked children to spread fear to attain more achievements in the negotiations. On the other hand, the Taliban argued that the Afghan government carries out such attacks because it is incapable of fighting on the battlefield and had nothing to say in the peace talks. Some also said that ISIL carried out the terrorist attack to take revenge on the Shiites,” he continued.


“ISIL has carried out similar attacks before the recent terrorist operation. Recently, a senior Afghan government official pursuing security issues said that ISIL is targeting Shiites everywhere. It does not matter to them whether these Shiites are women, children, or men, it attacks them everywhere. One week before the terrorist attack on the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School, a senior Afghan official said that ISIL had said in a message that the group would attack the country’s Shiites if the group’s prisoners were not released by the government,” said the former Minister of Refugees of Afghanistan.


“The perpetrators of this terrorist attack think that the Shiites of Afghanistan are helpless people, and there are benefits of terrorist attacks against them. At a recent press conference, the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan made some demands. According to the council, the terrorist attacks in the Shiite areas are genocide against the Shiites, and it is the duty of the Afghan government to ensure the security of the Shiites. The Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan believes that the Afghan government has not met expectations,” stated Alami Balkhi, recognizing the Kabul terrorist attack as a shameful act.


“The Afghan Shiite Ulema Council has three specific demands on the Afghan government. Ensuring the security of the citizens of the country is one of the government’s duties, and in this regard, the Afghan government has not done its job well. It needs to provide more security. Previously, a security plan was submitted to the government by the Security Coordination Commission. This plan must be implemented, and if the government does not consider this plan appropriate, it should present an alternative plan. If the government does not act in this regard, measures must be devised to solve the problems through the local defense,” he continued.


“We need the clarification on the terrorist attack in Kabul. It is the duty of the government to determine who is the perpetrator of the attack, and if the perpetrators are in areas controlled by the Afghan government, they should be punished, and if they are not in these areas, they should be identified so that this crime can be pursued in the international community, and declared as genocide. These are expectations of the people of Afghanistan from the government. Also, the situation of the missing people in the terrorist attack in Kabul should be determined,” added the member of the General Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


It should be mentioned that on the evening of Saturday, May 8, 2021, 85 people were martyred and more than 150 were injured in three consecutive explosions in front of Sayed al-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul (Dasht-e Barchi). The bombings took place in the 13th security district west of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

Successive attacks on Afghan Shiites not accidental: Salehi Modarres

Successive attacks on Afghan Shiites not accidental: Salehi Modarres

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


Referring to the martyrs of the Kabul terrorist incident, Ayatollah Mohammad Hashim Salehi Modarres, Chairman of the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan, said at the ceremony, “In this terrorist attack, 84 innocent girls were martyred, and about 200 people were injured. This terrorist incident was very suffering and severe. While meeting with the families of the martyrs and the wounded, representatives of the Council of Shiite Ulama observed that some of these families were so poor that they did not even have a home to live in, and lived in a room without a door. They often lived at the foot of the “Chehel Dokhtaran” (Forty Girls) mountain and were deprived of the basic facilities of life. The family of one of the martyrs said that their daughter’s body was identified through carpet weaving effects on her hands. Another family said their daughter had performed Ghosl (of Shahada) at dawn on the day of the terrorist attack, saying, “Today is the last day of my life”.”


“The martyrs of the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul were the followers of the school of Ashura and Imam Hussein (a.s.). These oppressed children were torn to pieces. Throughout history, such a crime is either rare or unparalleled. The successive attacks on Afghan Shiites are not accidental, and our enemy, who is the enemy of Islam and humanity, targeted our people with prior preparation. Our people have a brilliant history, and according to Grand Ayatollah Hakim, “I have seen less like the people of Afghanistan, a religious people who love Source of Emulation and Ulama.” The people of Afghanistan have a brilliant record of adhering to Islam, participating in jihad, learning science, and promoting culture,” he continued.


“Our people are peace-loving people and have lived as brothers with all the other brothers in Afghanistan. The first motive for attacks on schools, mosques, hospitals, and universities in Afghanistan is to create religious divisions. But our people are smarter than to fall into this trap. Throughout history, the Shiite people of Afghanistan have not fought with their Sunni brothers. The people of other countries should learn from Afghanistan’s people that we did not have a Shiite-Sunni war in the country. The enemies of Islam stir up discord in Afghan society in order to prevent the growth of talents and scientific prosperity,” he added.


“One of the reasons for the crimes against the country’s Shiites is the weakness of the security organizations. They do not arrest the perpetrators of these crimes, and they do not bring them to justice. This causes the criminals to commit crimes again. The lack of a unified leadership for the Shiites of Afghanistan is one of the reasons for the crimes against them. Officials must prioritize the interests of society over individual and ethnic interests. As long as the Shiites of Afghanistan don’t unite and every one pursues only the interests of his party, this tragedy will not be removed from our people,” said Ayatollah Mohammad Hashem Salehi Modarres, referring to the weakness of Afghanistan’s security organizations.


“The political ingenuity and cohesion of the leaders in the Shiite community of Afghanistan are very important, and if this cohesion is achieved, the crimes against our nation will end. Economic affairs, drugs, and addiction are other important issues,” he continued.


“Our leaders must take the right actions and make a joint decision. They should all be one voice and one word and have only one wish and one action. The nation also must follow them. The Shiite people of Afghanistan are very displaced, but they love peace,” noted the Chairman of the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan.


It should be mentioned that on the evening of Saturday, May 8, 2021, 85 people were martyred and more than 150 were injured in three consecutive explosions in front of Sayed al-Shuhada High School in the west of Kabul (Dasht-e Barchi).

On the 40th day of the terrorist attack on Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, and the martyrdom of tens of innocent fasting student girls, a commemoration ceremony, organized by the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, was held on Thursday, June 17, 202. The ceremony was a part of a series of AhlulBayt’s virtual meetings on the subject of “Why the Shiites are oppressed in Afghanistan; Strategies to strengthen the Shiite community.”


At the ceremony, referring to the painful tragedy of the martyrdom of Shiite schoolgirls in Afghanistan, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “The terrorist explosion at Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, which killed 85 people and injured 150 others, was one of the most tragic terrorist incidents in the contemporary era. Most of the martyrs were 13- to 16-year-old girls. Some of the martyrs of the incident were torn to pieces. So that their identification was possible only by their stationery. On the other hand, the families of these martyrs were below the poverty line.”


“Regarding the crime of martyring female students in Kabul, one should read this verse: “بِأَيِّ ذَنْبٍ قُتِلَتْ” (For what sin she was slain) (Quran, 81: 9). Although condemnation messages were issued from all over the world after this incident, and the seminaries of Qom and Najaf, the Grand Source of Emulations, Sunni scholars, pope, and various organizations condemned it, this incident is one of the most painful and horrible incidents in Afghanistan since the beginning of the American military presence in the country, even in the contemporary era,” he continued.


Following in the webinar, Ayatollah Mohammad Hashem Salehi Modarres, Chairman of the Council of Shiite Ulama of Afghanistan, said, “The martyrs of the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Kabul were the followers of the school of Ashura and Imam Hussein (a.s.).

Referring to the role of ISIL in the terrorist attack in Kabul, Sayed Hussein Alemi Balkhi, former Minister of Refugees of Afghanistan, and a member of the General Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “ISIL has carried out similar attacks before the recent terrorist operation. Recently, a senior Afghan government official pursuing security issues said that ISIL is targeting Shiites everywhere.

One week before the terrorist attack on the Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School, a senior Afghan official said that ISIL had said in a message that the group would attack the country’s Shiites if the group’s prisoners were not released by the government.”


At the end of the ceremony, Ms. Tavakoli, the director of Sayed Al-Shuhada Girls’ High School in Dasht-e Barchi, Kabul, said, “The martyrs of the Kabul terrorist incident were those who, according to the religious teachings and orders of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), educating them is a religious duty.
