In a speech for the "District of Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist Representation in the Affairs of Hajj and Pilgrimage", the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly Ayatollah, "Reza Ramazani", called Martyr Haj Qassem Soleimani a Mujahid for Allah and a Mujahid for the Allah's Path, who can be introduced as a role model for new generation.
"In the present era, if we want to introduce a "Mujahid" in the strict sense of the Qur'anic meanings, in a very wide radius, Hajj Qasim Soleimani will be at the top of this radius who created a new chapter of resistance in human society for the freedom seekers", he added.
"Hajj Qasim Soleimani is a Quranic Mujahid and an (Allah's) seeker Mujahid; one who was best example of jihad in both senses: Jihad Akbar (fighting with material passions) and the Jihad Asqar (fighting with enemies in the battlefield)", said the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
"In "Mujahid for God", man strives (do jihad) to establish his faith and beliefs in order to somehow manage his soul and his carnal desires", added Ayatollah Ramazani, saying that there is Mujahid in both senses of "Mujahid fi Allah" (Mujahid for Allah) and "Mujahid fi Sabil Allah" (Mujahid for Allah's path) in Holy Quran.
"Governing the soul, which leads to managing the one's soul and his inside, can have meaning to all aspects of human's life. As Imam Ali (a.s.) says in a Hadith: The best governors are those who are governors of themselves. ", he said.
Emphasizing that General Soleimani can be introduced as a role model for new generation, the representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts of the Leadership, Ayatollah Ramazani said, "As the Supreme Leader once said, he was "unique" and because of his comprehensiveness, he could create a "school"."
"Jihad for Allah and Jihad for the Allah's Path, is to fight against internal and external dictatorship. In internal dictatorship, man wants to take advantage everything. There is an internal pharaoh in human beings which has an arrogant temperament, with which the man must confront. There is a kind of superiority in some human beings that seeks to dominate the whole of human society. This authoritarianism, narcissism and arrogance cause human beings to take another path (deviate from the path of God). Arrogance against God, will also be against the Prophet and the divine commandments. Satan was also arrogant (before God) and his arrogant temperament caused him to be rejected from the court of God, and God, the Almighty, cursed and rejected him", he said.
"The prophets came as educators to play their educational role in the best way and to educate the human souls. If the human souls are educated, man will progress and excel. Man must believe that he must grow, prosper and excel. To achieve this goal, he must remove selfishness, egoism, arrogance, narcissism, authoritarianism and arrogant temperament, and he must remove anything but God from his life", Said Ayatollah Ramazani, stating that everyone should strive to protect his soul from material passions.
"Haj Qasim (General Soleimani) was literally a role model and a Mujahid for Allah. His beloved (Allah) was important to him and he tried to reach his beloved and meet him (Allah). Haj Qasim; a Mojahid who was in love (of Allah), and a seeker (of Allah's Path)", Stated the Secretary General of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
"Via Jiahad for Allah, this great general brought himself closer to Allah and sacrifice his soul and his everything in the Jihad for the Path of Allah", He continued.
Stating that all those who have security are indebted to General Soleimani, Ayatollah Ramazani clarified, "If the fight against ISIL was not carried out under his command, today many countries would be under threat. Thanks to this brave and commander and seeker (of Allah's Path), the evil of those who threatened human society, not just Muslims, was removed."
"General Soleimani fought those who created terror in the human society in order to restore security to the society as an important component of it and Islamic civilization. One of the characteristics of Imam Mahdi's society is security, and this security must be so that humanity can follow the path of worship and servitude to God", he added.
Haj Qasem (General Soleimani) was a self-raised figure who sacrifice his life for God, the Almighty, to ensure the security of society. His presence was a divine gift for the human society and his martyrdom created a new chapter of resistance in human society, for, he has was martyred by order and by the hand of the most evil people", concluded the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, at the end of his speech.
