Imam Ali (a.s.) dealt severely with the traitors/People seek the taste of justice: Ayatollah Ramazani

Saturday, 01 May 2021

In the 17th episode of the special internet program “Facing the Sky”, which is broadcast on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, pointing out that the Imams (a.s.) have the best attributes and characteristics and we should consider them as role models, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani Gilani stated, “The knowledge of good and evil is based on Fitrah (nature), and man can know good and evil with reason and thought.”


“A believer should do good deeds and maintain them throughout his life,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that human beings are naturally inclined to goodness and avoid evil.


“On the other hand, society must abandon evil and refrain from spreading it,” he emphasized, stating that the Islamic society should also tend towards the good in practice and achieve it.


“The spread of evil, Fahsha (lewdness) and Monkar (iniquity) leads the society astray and causes losses,” Ayatollah Ramazani clarified.


Referring to the fact that two groups of people live in communities, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly added, “The first type is benevolent human beings and the second type are human beings who do ugly deeds. Officials should pay special attention to both groups.”


“Public charity creates a kind of encouragement for other people to participate in good deeds,” he said, stating that in the hadiths, the public charity has been ordered.


“Encouraging good deeds causes those who openly do evil deeds to be forbidden,” Ayatollah Ramazani added.


“The official and manager, with any rank and position in a society with Islamic rule, should not have the same view of a bad and a good person,” noted the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“Of course, paying attention to citizenship rights is a different matter, but our view of people should be based on criteria and values,” he said, stating that it is very clear that the believer and the wicked should not be looked at in the same way.


“In terms of valuation, a person who believes in God and religious beliefs is different from someone who has no belief in God and religious principles,” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.


“The equality of the wicked and the virtuous man causes the virtuous man to be reluctant to act and the wicked person to continue his deviant path,” noted the Secretary-General of the World Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), referring to the letter of Imam Ali (a.s.) to Malik Ashtar.


“According to the advice of Imam Ali (a.s.), the person in charge must act according to what people do and always encourage them to do good deeds,” he emphasized.


“It is narrated in the book of Sunan al-Nabi that the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) encouraged and praised good deeds and condemned ugly deeds,” emphasized Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the behavior of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) in the face of good and ugly deeds.


“Just as encouraging a child to do a good deed keeps it going, so does reminding a lot and encouraging people in the community to do a good deed inspire a spirit of charity in people,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“Encouraging those in society who give alms, help, care for orphans, solve problems and alleviate poverty will continue to do good deeds, and even encourage those who fail to do so,” he mentioned.


“According to Imam Ali (a.s.), valuations in society should be based on certain criteria and the efforts and work of each person should be measured by the value and position of that person,” Ayatollah Ramazani clarified.


“Also, a person’s low position should not cause his great efforts to be underestimated,” the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly added, pointing out that the greatness of a person due to his position should not cause his low efforts to be considered high.


“When a person is in a position, expectations are higher than his,” he clarified, stating that the people in charge in the Islamic society have many responsibilities to achieve justice and equality.


“If the official betrayed and the secret agents testified to the truth of this matter, the official should be dealt with severely,” Ayatollah Ramazani stated.


“Punishment of a traitor is corporal punishment, confiscation of illegally obtained property, introduction as a traitor and deprivation of government responsibility,” emphasized the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly Referring to the punishment of the traitor in the words of Imam Ali (a.s.).


“The betrayal of any government official in any position, if proven, must be dealt with and punished with the most severe form,” he clarified.


Pointing out that all people, even in the farthest region of the country, seek to achieve and taste justice in society, Ayatollah Ramazani noted, “In order to achieve this, the judiciary must deal seriously with the traitors and create judicial security.”


“Imam Ali (a.s.) is a person who always worshiped at night, fought bravely on the battlefield, and when he was the ruler of the society, he treated the violators and traitors seriously,” he clarified.


“The moral and mystical character of Imam Ali (a.s.) does not contradict his decisive character in dealing with traitors,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

In the tenth episode of the special internet program “Facing the Sky”, which is broadcast on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, pointing out that Ramadan is the month of God’s feast, referring to the necessity of implementing the divine commandments, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani Gilani stated, “Islam does not have only individual rules, but a major part of Islamic rules is social.”


“In many verses and hadiths, it is highly recommended to pay attention to the poor, the needy, and to support orphans and protect their property,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that it is necessary to pay attention to the challenges, social problems, and helplessness that sometimes arise in society.


“The manner of Imam Ali (a.s.) dealing with orphans and also the orphans’ interest in him has been narrated a lot,” he emphasized, stating that Imam Ali (a.s.) was the father of orphans and in his will also recommended to support the orphans.


“In various prayers, we ask God Almighty to provide us with sustenance to be kind to orphans,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, considering the support of orphans as one of the prominent features of the life of Imam Ali (a.s.).


“According to some narrations, if someone can take care of an orphan and make him needless, God makes Paradise obligatory on him, and for the one who uses the property of the orphan, the fire of Hell becomes obligatory,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the effects and results of caring for orphans.


“According to the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), supporting orphans eliminates cruelty of heart,” he noted, referring to the advice of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) regarding the supporting of orphans.


“There is no believing man or woman who puts his hand on the head of an orphan unless God writes goodness on the number of hairs that are touched,” added Ayatollah Ramazani, stating that God Almighty pays special attention to orphans.


“The best homes are those where orphans are cared for,” noted the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that supporting orphans causes enlightenment in human beings.


Referring to the existence of various institutions for the care of orphans, he stressed, “However, the role that the family can play in raising orphans and supporting them is very different and influential.”


“Of course, donors can, as far as possible, participate in the reward of this God-pleasing deed by visiting orphanages, embracing orphans, and paying their expenses,” Ayatollah Ramazani stated.


“Today, supporting orphans can help alleviate the problem of emotional poverty in society,” emphasized the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to the social effects of supporting orphans in the society.


Stating that orphans need consolation, inspection, and care, he noted, “Imam Ali (a.s.) was a role model in this action and always paid attention to the orphans.”


“Fortunately, today we see that many orphans in society have reached top scientific, cultural and social positions,” concluded Ayatollah Ramazani in the end.

Imam Ali’s Lifestyle; base for Islamic civilization for human societies

The “6th Conference of Imam Ali” on the subject of the lifestyle of “Amir al-Mu'minin Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.)” was held online in Italy.


Held on Saturday evening, February 20, 2021, and organized by “Islamic Confederation of Italian Shiites”, the representatives of the different religious groups expressed their views on the great character of Imam Ali (a.s.).


This year, the special guest of Conference of Imam Ali (a.s.) was the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Ayatollah “Reza Ramazani”, who delivered his speech at the beginning of the conference.


“Imam Ali (a.s.) was a comprehensive figure. In other words, he can be introduced as the educational miracle of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h),” he stated, referring to the need to pay attention to the lifestyle of Imam Ali (a.s.).


“The Holy Quran is an example of a verbal miracle, and a comprehensive personality, and a perfect Muslim, that is, Imam Ali (a.s.), is the educational miracle of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h). There are many examples of the practical miracle of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) that have been mentioned in various books, including the Holy Quran,” added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) had verbal, practical, and educational miracles.


“Great poets wanted to praise the great character of Hazrat Amir (a.s.), but as the Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, the virtues and perfections of Imam Ali (a.s.) cannot be counted. One of the poets whose praiseful poems we should pay attention to is Sheikh Safi al-Din Hilli. Many attributes and characteristics of Imam Ali (a.s.) are mentioned in the poems of Sheikh Safi al-Din Hilli. In the words of this student of Allameh Hilli, Imam Ali (a.s.) had comprehensive attributes in ethics and is a person of worship, mysticism, and battlefield. Such a personality, is a role model for all human beings,” added Ayatollah Ramazani.


“Throughout history, it is rare for the most devout person to become the most warrior person. But all these attributes are gathered in Imam Ali (a.s.) and he is comprehensive of the attributes of opposites,” added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“While Imam Ali (a.s.) was the ruler, his asceticism and piety were also in the highest rank and degree,” he clarified, stating that Imam Ali (a.s.) is a person who is both ascetic and a ruler.


“Imam Ali (a.s.) was both a kind spouse and a caring father in the family. Relying on the highest degree of faith, he was chosen as the successor of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h),” emphasized Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that Imam Ali (a.s.) had a pious lifestyle and this faith appeared in all areas of his life.


“Imam Ali (a.s.) was the first person to become a Muslim. He paid close attention to worship,” added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that there was a faithful view in all aspects of the life of Imam Ali (a.s.) that should be known.


‘In asceticism and piety, Imam Ali (a.s.) was not dependent on anyone (and anything) except the right, and he was not happy in gaining worldly affairs, and losing everything,” he mentioned.


“Imam Ali (AS) suffered a lot for development (of the society). However, when he built an aqueduct, he endowed it, and whenever he built a garden, he sold it and donated it to the poor. Imam Ali (a.s.) had all the attributes of perfection and his life in the fields of justice, politics, etc. was based on faith,” said Ayatollah Ramazani.


“Many people have written books about Imam Ali (a.s.) but in practice and behavior, they are far from him,” stated Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that everyone should try to make their behavior similar to the behavior of Imam Ali (a.s.).


“The society of Imam Ali (a.s.) is a society based on values and the development of communication that is in the path of human life, progress, excellence, and evolution and grows individually and socially,” he said, recognizing the concern of Imam Ali (a.s.), the transformation of human society into a divine, humanly and value-oriented society.


“Human beings must be rational and work together to provide a platform for perfection,” noted Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that, according to Imam Ali (a.s.), individual and social rationality should exist in all dimensions and that the rationality should grow in society.


“Many efforts must be made for a society to be value-oriented, rational, progressive and on the path to excellence, and for the life of that society to be a life of faith, based on true human faith and beliefs,” stated the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, referring to a Hadith of Imam Ali (a.s.).


“We should make our life as similar as possible to the life of the AhlulBayt (a.s.). We can never behave like Imam Ali (a.s.) in food and clothing. But in the path of imitating him, the least that is necessary is to avoid extravagance and luxury. Those who, like Muawiya, ate luxurious food and had luxury in all dimension of their lives, their path is far from that of the Imams (a.s.),” he emphasized, stating that we can never live in all things or details like Imam Ali (a.s.).


“We must take care of ourselves in piety and not walk in the path of sin,” Ayatollah Ramazani said, pointing out that we should all help society to recognize its responsibilities individually and socially.


“The path of a society that seeks progress should not be the path of sin, but the path of obedience to divine command so that man does not deviate from the path of truth,” added the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“The individual and the society that wants to grow must use their will seriously and not be disappointed,” he added.


“The people of the society must be firm and strong and do their duty properly and concerning all aspects. This is the meaning of wisdom. The quality of work and attention to work in our society must increase. Working is the essence of man and the cause of his perfection,” stated Ayatollah Ramazani, pointing out that pure thinking, chastity, and living pure, is necessary for society to be on the path of mental health.


“Any person who approaches the advice of Imam Ali (a.s.) according to his capacity can be effective (in society),” stated Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.


“In the field of fiduciary duty, especially in the case of officials, more care should be taken. Because if this is neglected, there will be irreparable damage to the revolution and the (Islamic) system (of Iran),” he added, pointing out that human beings should strive as if they are always alive and as ready as if they will die tomorrow.


“Khalgh (خَلق) means a creation that is not optional for us, such as physical structure, body, face, race and gender; and Kholgh (خُلق) means the creation of internal traits and moral matters such as piety, chastity, ijtihad, perseverance, etc. The Islamic lifestyle has much in common with the issue of morality, and morality is something that is made by human beings,” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized, referring to the differences between Khalgh (appearance creation) and Kholgh (manners).


“Examining the lifestyle centered on the lives of Imam Ali (a.s.) and the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), with webinars, conferences, etc., is an admirable action and deserves appreciation,” stated the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that knowing the lifestyle of Imam Ali (a.s.) provides the basis for Islamic civilization for human societies.


It should be mentioned that a group of officials of various Islamic associations, including Dr. Sayed Ahmadi, Hojat al-Islam Ali Faeznia, Imam Palavicini, Dan Jan Piero, Giuseppe Ailo, Mahdi Shaqir, Hojat al-Islam Abbas DiPalma, Professor Sayed Ali Hosseini, Patrizia Zahra Landi, Engineer  Mohammad Vahedi, Sayed Ali Bukhari, Dr. Shaqir, Sayed Ali Naqavi, Shahid Ali, Sayed Imran Naqavi, and Sayed Tajammol Me’raj, attended the 6th conference of Imam Ali (a.s.) and gave their speeches on the subject of the conference.
