Abu Talib (a.s.), exceptional but oppressed figure: Mirbagheri
Following in the program, Hojjatoleslam Seyyed Mohammad Mehdi Mirbagheri delivered a speech. Referring to the dimensions of the unique personality of Hazrat Abu Talib, he (a.s.) said, “Authentic sources state that he and his noble father, Hazrat Abd al-Muttalib (a.s.) were Mowahed (Monotheist).”
“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) is an exceptional figure. Despite his great support for the Prophet (p.b.u.h), he is considered a Mushrik (polytheist)! This shows the oppression against this great character,” said the representative of Alborz province in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.
“Art is a good tool to use to introduce the character of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) to everyone. With art, he can be saved from oppression,” added the seminary professor, appreciating calligraphy event which was held on Saturday.
During the event, a meeting was held to commemorate the birth of Imam Mohammad Baqir (a.s.) and the poet of AhlulBayt (a.s.) Majid Tal recited poems in praise of Imam Baqir (a.s.) and the other poets also sang praises.
