Last night, January 16, 2021, at the mourning ceremony on the night of the martyrdom of Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (a.s.), which was held at the Grand Mosque of the city of Astana Ashrafieh, stating that people like us cannot understand the position of Hazrat Zahra (a.s.), Ayatollah Reza Ramazani said, “Hazrat Fatima was a person that Hazrat Gabriel (a.s.) has the honor of serving in her presence.”
Quoting Imam Khomeini (r.a.) as saying, “One of the most important virtues of Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) is that Hazrat Gabriel (a.s.) came to serve her, the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, said, “Gabriel (a.s.) serves someone who reaches the infallibility and divine knowledge.”
He stated, “Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) had divine knowledge and the position of infallibility, and the result of this relationship and this service was the existence of the Mushaf of Fatima (a.s.) after the demise of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h).”
Stating that the demise of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) was so difficult and unfortunate for lady Fatima, Ayatollah Ramazani added, “Whenever Hazrat Fatima (a.s.) came to the presence of his father, the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), he stood in her honor and kissed her hands. This issue indicates the position of Hazrat Zahra (a.s.).”
Emphasizing that during her life, both at the time of her birth and at the time of her martyrdom, Hazrat Fatima Zahra (a.s.) faced many hardships in the Islamic Society, the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “In the She’b (Valley) of Abi Talib (during the boycott of Quraysh against Bani Hashe, Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his followers), between the year 8th to the 10th of the Be’sat, the most difficult conditions were created for Hazrat Fatima (a.s.) and also she lost her mother in the year 10th of the Be’sat.”
Referring to the moral characteristics of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (a.s.), he added, “With the least facilities Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) raised her children well, but today, with the most facilities, sometimes the raising children is not seen as good.”
“During the years of her marriage with Imam Ali (a.s.), Hazrat Fatima (a.s.) behaved and lived in a way that sometimes managed the hunger of her children somehow that Imam Ali (a.s.) did not learn.” The Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly continued.
Referring to the scientific position of Hazrat Zahra (a.s.), he noted, “Hazrat Fatemeh (a.s.) had a great scientific status so that one of the scientific resources of the Imams (a.s.) is the Mushaf of Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (a.s.). Late Sheikh Kulayni has mentioned some Hadith in the book Osul Kafi in this regard.”
“Many people would ask Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) to answer their questions. Some men even sent their wives to her to ask their questions.” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.
Stating that after the death of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), his grandson would be placed on a spear (and would be martyred), due to the ignorance of society, he specified, “There are deep and precise points in the sermons of Hazrat Zahra (a.s) and after reading this sermon, the hearts become enlightened and it is clear that she has an educational mission for the society.
“If the impure sperm is coagulated, society will be harmed and this impure sperm was coagulated after the demise of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) which provided the ground for corruption,” the representative of the people of Gilan Province in the Assembly of Experts emphasized, “After the demise of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), the religion (of Islam) was handed over to the villains – the Umayyads and the Abbasids committed the worst crimes against the AhlulBayt (a.s.).”
Pointing out that some people are arrogant towards God, the Prophet, the divine laws, the scholars and their friends, and this arrogance affects all aspects of their lives, he said, “Islamic society needs an infallible and just leader who can guide the society.”
Ayatollah Ramazani clarified, “If the leadership is conducted properly and human beings are obedient and committed to obey the Imam, they will definitely obtain salvation. In this regard, of course, three points must be observed: knowledge of the Imam, love for the Imam, and obedience to the Imam.”
“Enjoining the good and forbidding the evil has a personal effect that acquaints the person with the good and according to Hazrat Zahra (a.s.), “Enjoining the good and forbidding the evil is for the benefit of society and builds it.”” Stated the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
Referring to the fact that the action of Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) after the demise of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) caused the Islamic society to be insured in terms of responsibility, he noted, “If Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) had not prevented the great deviation (The usurpation of the Caliphate of Imam Ali by some people), worse things would have happened and the religion (of Islam) and the Quran would have been eliminated and annihilated.”
“Responsibility is on all people, but the government must also fulfill its specific duty.” Ayatollah Ramazani said, “God’s commandments and religion are mocked, man must do his duty.”
“In the West, some people say put aside the verses related to jihad in the Quran because these verses belong to the time of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and today is the time of peace”, he reiterated, “We, of course, believe in peace. But a just peace based on justice. Yet, we do not accept general peace in the sense that we consider any enemy who seeks to eradicate religion as a friend.”
“Some people are not familiar with religious literature and do not understand why the martyr Haj Qasim Soleimani went abroad”, added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, emphasizing, “Religion raises the issue of justice and security, and there is no difference between the security inside and outside the borders. The presence of Haj Qasem (General Qassem Soleimani) was a danger to the enemies of Islam in the international arena, and for this reason, his assassination plot was hatched by the evilest enemies.”
“The Axis of Resistance is educated in the school of Hazrat Zainab (a.s.) and opened a new chapter in the international arena.” He mentioned.
“Hazrat Zahra (a.s.) was the leader of the resistance against the deviation of the Islamic society and tried to connect the Islamic society to the Infallible (twelve) Imams (a.s.) so that the religion would not be handed over to the miscreants, namely the Umayyads and the Abbasids; an issue that we have seen the result of throughout history.” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.
“Imam Khomeini, a student of the same school, led this revolution (Islamic Revolution of Iran) with the presence of the people. Today, the public responsibility for enjoining the good and forbidding the evil must be revived.” He continued.
“Many divine commandments have been ridiculed in society. Officials should pay more attention to the salient issues of religion.” The representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts said, “Society should not provide a ground for the sins of the young generation. We must take care of the young generation and provide a platform for their education.”
“The enemies have drawn the most accurate plans to turn us and our young generation away from religion and religious and divine teachings.” He stated, “Cyberspace can expand the scientific arena, but if it is left unchecked, it can lead to the eclecticism and deviance of the younger generation.”
“The good deeds in the society such as Salat, Zakat, Jihad, and evil deeds such as lack of hijab, embezzlement, and betrayal of the Bayt al-mal (public wealth) must be considered.” Ayatollah Ramazani said, “Due to the great Islamic Revolution (of Iran), we are witnessing the culture of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is spreading day by day in the world, and we should be grateful to God.”
“We believe while women can be good mothers and wives, they should be social activists in the field of education. Not only women and girls but also men should learn this responsibility from Hazrat Zahra (a.s.).” Concluded the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
