Arbaeen great divine convention for all religions, nations/Imam Hussein (a.s.) belongs to all humanity: Ayatollah Ramazani

The opening ceremony of Arbaeen Hosseini’s official activities in Latin America was held on Sunday morning, September 19, 2021, with the speech of the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

While offering his condolences for the days of mourning for Imam Hussain (a.s.) and Arbaeen, and appreciating the establishment of the Arbaeen headquarters in Latin America, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani said, “I appreciate you for starting a valuable work and forming a headquarters called Arbaeen with the slogan “Service and Hope”.”

“I hope that by using the capacity set in Latin America, the members of Arbaeen headquarters will be able to get to know each other better and provide a platform for interaction, understanding, and synergy,” he said, expressing hope that the activity of Arbaeen headquarters should be seriously and actively pursued throughout the year.

 “Arbaeen should be considered as the largest convention of Muslims. Imam Hussain (a.s.) belongs to all nations and all religions. He is the teacher and educator of the freedmen. There are important lessons of seeking justice, confronting authoritarianism and oppression, enjoining the good and forbidding the evil in the teachings of Imam Hussain (a.s.),” emphasized the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.

“Imam Hussain (a.s.) belongs not only to the Shiites, but to all Muslims; he belongs not only to Muslims, but to all followers of the Abrahamic religions, and also he belongs not only to all followers of the Abrahamic religions, but to all human beings, and this is a global and international capacity,” continued Ayatollah Ramazani.

“Understanding this capacity is very important and should be studied and researched, and once the capacities are properly understood, we will be able to understand this event more comprehensively and accurately,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the various dimensions of Arbaeen Hosseini.

“Ashura and what happened up to Arbaeen (forty days after the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and his companions in Karbala) in the year 61 AH, shows the most emotional truth. There can be no more emotional flow and movement than Ashura and Arbaeen. These feelings and emotions have been passed down from generation to generation,” he clarified, considering emotional capacity as one of the Arbaeen capacities.

“During 1400 years, the uprising of Sayyid al-Shuhada (a.s.) has created a great internal transformation and revolution; a large number of people gather in (Iraq) to pay their tribute (to Imam Hussein (a.s.) and his family and companions) and spend their lives and property to keep Ashura and Arbaeen alive. This great glory increases year by year in the Arbaeen ceremony,” Ayatollah Ramazani added.

Referring to the pandemic of the evil Covid-19 virus, which has outbroken the world, and deprived many people of the opportunity to participate in the Arbaeen Walk, the member of the Assembly of Leadership Experts expressed, “May God Almighty remove this calamity from human society so that Muslims and non-Muslims with a population of 20 million and more can participate in Arbaeen Walk.”

“We can see high spirituality during the Arbaeen Walk in Najaf and Karbala. Worship, mentioning the sufferings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), prayers, paying attention to the ideals of Imam Hussain (a.s.), the teachings of Ashura, and many other issues are quite evident in Arbaeen Walk. You can see the most beautiful service in Arbaeen,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the spiritual aspect as another achievement of the Arbaeen movement.

Considering the high hope for the best kind of life and tasting justice and the elimination of the oppression of wealth, force and hypocrisy colonialism, as lessons from the Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (a.s.), Ayatollah Ramazani said, “The intellectual and structural atmosphere of society must believe in this hope.”

Referring to the phrase, “بَذَلَ مُهْجَتَهُ فِيكَ لِيَسْتَنْقِذَ عِبَادَكَ مِنَ الْجَهَالَةِ وَ حَيْرَةِ الضَّلالَةِ” ((O’God) He (Imam Hussein (a.s.)) sacrificed his life in your way, to save your servants from ignorance and wandering misguidance) from the Arbaeen pilgrimage letter, Ayatollah Ramazani added, “Imam Hussein (a.s.) sacrificed the blood of his heart in the way of God and saved the people from ignorance. The Arbaeen pilgrimage letter reads: “Some authoritarians, worldly and ambitious people stood up the best of human beings. They behead the “Imam of the society” and the “Guardian of God” and put it on the spear. Less than 30 years after the demise of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), the enemies placed the silent Quran on a spear (referring to the Battle of Siffin between Muawiyah and Imam Ali (a.s.)), and 50 years later, they put the “speaking Quran” (Imam Hussain (a.s.)) on a spear.” All of these events were due to the ignorance of the society.”

“Arbaeen bestowed awakening and multidimensional awareness to human society: awakening in the emotional, spiritual, cultural and political dimensions,” Ayatollah Ramazani said, referring to the spiritual, justice, cultural and political aspects of Arbaeen.

“From the mourning ceremonies for Imam Hussein (a.s.) and Arbaeen, one should learn the lessons of monotheism, seeking justice, and confronting authoritarianism. In his analysis of the Husseini movement, Imam Khomeini (r.a.) said, “Weeping for Imam Hussein (a.s.) should have a political and reformist aspect”,” he said.

“If today’s human society reach the spirit of Ashura and Arbaeen, the ground for the growth of the individual, family, and society will be provided,” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.)  World Assembly.

“Unfortunately, we are facing news boycott of Arbaeen, and some media outlets fail to cover the spirituality, love, self-sacrifice, and affection of the Arbaeen Hosseini March,” said Ayatollah Ramazani considering Arbaeen as a great divine convention of all religions and nations.

“Introduce Arbaeen and Ashura thinking to the people, and consider Arbaeen as great because this movement can be a great global event,” said the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts, addressing the organizers of the Arbaeen headquarters in Latin America, while appreciating them.

Following the ceremony, referring to the appointed activities of the headquarters, Soheil Assad, the secretary of the Arbaeen headquarters in Latin America, announced the release of the Arbaeen pilgrimage software with Spanish and French translations, which was prepared for the first time. He also announced, “For the first time, on Arbaeen Hosseini Day the Arbaeen pilgrimage letter will be recited online, simultaneously throughout the Latin American region.”

The next part of the opening ceremony of the special activities dedicated to Arbaeen in Latin America was describing the activities and actions of Islamic centers throughout this region by the officials of Islamic centers. In this meeting, the officials of the Islamic centers of countries such as Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, etc., briefly explained the activities of their center.

The responsibilities of the Arbaeen International Headquarters in the Latin American region are planning and coordination between countries, content production, regional and trans-regional support, special planning, and coordination with the holy shrines.

Also, some of the activities and programs of the Arbaeen International Headquarters in Latin America are: Publication of two new books in Latin American countries on the subject of Ashura and Arbaeen, holding street processions, launching a motorcade caravan, holding a national and coordinated Arbaeen pilgrimage throughout Latin America, holding ceremonies in Islamic centers and mosques, publishing a magazine for children on the subject of Arbaeen and Muharram, and production of Arbaeen pilgrimage software.

The meeting, which was held on Sunday morning, September 19, 2021, Tehran time, ended with mourning and praising for AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the recourse in AhlulBayt (a.s.) by activists and Latin American Muslims.

Arbaeen pilgrimage showed unity of the Iranian nation and the Iraqi nation: Rafثd Al-Tamimi

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.

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 Iranian and Iraqi nations. 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.

“The Mawkebs are the beating heart of the Arbaeen pilgrimage. We must work to strengthen the intellectual dimension of this ceremony, and in this regard, the Mawkeb owners have the authority to decide. We must put the promotion of ideas on the agenda,” added the head of Warith al-Anbia Institute.

“In addition to serving the pilgrims, Mawkeb owners should be encouraged to address cultural issues in the Mawkebs,” Al-Tamimi stated, considering the strengthening of the Arbaeen Mawkebs as a necessity.

“Workshops should be held for Mawkeb owners in various locations. It is also necessary to design a program with a framework for the intellectual development of the Mawkeb owners,” he concluded.

Insight, main constituent of Arbaeen movement: Nawab

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.

In this meeting, referring to the characteristics of Arbaeen, Hojat al-Islam Abdolfattah Nawab, the representative of the Supreme Leader in Hajj pilgrimage affairs, stated, “Arbaeen 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.

“Arbaeen is an opportunity to gain insight. Also, one of the signs of a believer is the Arbaeen pilgrimage. In the Arbaeen pilgrimage, 60 attributes are mentioned to know the Imam, and 12 attributes are mentioned to know the enemies of the Imam. According to this pilgrimage letter, the top of all ugliness in the event of Ashura was the pride of the enemies of Imam Hussein (a.s.) to their worldly life,” added the representative of the Supreme Leader in Hajj and Pilgrimage affairs.

“Clerics should pay attention to the software dimension of Arbaeen pilgrimage. One of the most important measures to increase insight is the Arbaeen pilgrimage,” stated the representative of the Supreme Leader in Hajj and Pilgrimage Affairs, considering insight as the main constituent of the Arbaeen movement.

“Knowing about the Imam, following the Imam, recognizing the enemies of the Imam, and the factors causing the enmity of the enemies with the Imam are among the items mentioned in the Arbaeen pilgrimage letter,” he continued.

“Just as it is responsible for pilgrims in Iran, Be’the of the Supreme Leader (District of the Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist Representation in the affairs of Hajj and pilgrimage) is also responsible for pilgrims outside Iran,” added the representative of the Supreme Leader in Hajj and Pilgrimage affairs.

“We must determine a specific plan for the Arbaeen pilgrimage ceremony so that the pilgrims can leave the Arbaeen pilgrimage with a higher vision after participating in this ceremony,” he mentioned.

Spirit of Tawhid visible in Arbaeen, Ashura confrontation between reason, ignorance fronts: Ramazani

Spirit of Tawhid visible in Arbaeen, Ashura confrontation between reason, ignorance fronts: Ramazani

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.

In this meeting, referring to the need to address the capacities of Arbaeen, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly stated, “We should not look at Arbaeen superficially. The Majlis of Imam Hussein (a.s.) has capacities in various fields, especially in the fields of politics and culture, which are not usually used. The Arbaeen pilgrimage should be recognized as a phenomenon in various dimensions, like the Majlis of Imam Hussein (a.s.). The phenomenology of Arbaeen can lead us to recognize its greatness.”

“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,” he continued.

“Many divine rewards have been mentioned for the Arbaeen pilgrimage. In the pilgrimage of Arbaeen Walk, at every step, the pilgrim can pay attention to the praising and praying God. The spirit of Tawhid can be seen in Arbaeen. If the Covid-19 pandemic had not spread, Arbaeen would have been more glorious every year than last year,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Ashura was a confrontation between the fronts of reason and ignorance. On one side was the front of virtues, and on the other was the front of vices. In mourning for Imam Hussein (a.s.), feelings, emotions, and rationality should be placed next to each other,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, considering Imam Hussein (a.s.) as a comprehensive role model.

“There are different dimensions in the issue of Arbaeen that should be observed simultaneously,” he continued.

“Ziyarat Ashura teaches us 20 positions, including the position of Tawalli (loving God, Prophet and his family – AhlulBayt), and the position of nearness to God in the path of conduct,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

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

“The international aspect of Arbaeen should be paid more attention. Of course, the greater the capacity of a phenomenon, the greater the possibility of misunderstanding it. For example, in the case of Ashura and mourning for Imam Hussein (a.s.), some misconceptions have been made. While according to Imam Khomeini, our crying in mourning (for Imam Hussein) is also political,” he continued.

“We must use the capacities of Arbaeen in various fields,” concluded the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

Arbaeen, boycotted in media: Ahmadi Tabar

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.
