Tuesday, 13 April 2021

In the final statement of the session of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, expressing warning of the gradual assassination and physical removal of the religious leaders of Islam in Nigeria, Comoros, Bahrain, it was emphasized the vigilance and awakening of the Islamic world and the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) more than before.


The statement of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong) (Holy Quran, 2:185)


With the help of God and the grace of Imam Mahdi (a.s.), the 189th meeting of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly was held and concluded in the last days of Sha’ban and on the eve of the holy month of Ramadan 1442 AH, next to the shrine of Hazrat Fatemeh Masoumeh (a.s.).


This important meeting, which is the first meeting in 1400 SH and is held on the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the members of the Supreme Council discussed the most important developments in the Islamic world and the latest situation of the Shiites’ world in order to formulate the priorities for the new year.


At the beginning of the meeting, the influential personalities of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly who passed away last year – the late Ayatollahs Amini, Mesbah Yazdi, and Takhiri – were honored and the works and blessings of those prominent scholars who were the expressive voice of Islam and Shiism and preached unity and proximity were appreciated.


At the end of this meeting, the positions of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly regarding the latest events related to the lovers and followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) were announced as follows:


1. Expressing their support and welcome to the speech of the Supreme Leader of Iran on the occasion of the Persian New Year, the members of the Supreme Council of the Assembly emphasize the authority of the holy system of the Islamic Republic of Iran from the past to the present, and maintaining and strengthening it in the future, despite heavy global sanctions against the country, as well as the dominance of the Covid-19 virus over all peoples of the world, and insist on promoting and spreading the culture of AhlulBayt (a.s.) in the world, in real and virtual space.


2. Pointing to the importance of drafting and approving the document of long-term and transformational vision of the Assembly, the members of the Supreme Council stressed on the continuous and more serious role of this institution and its internal and external attributes in sensitive regional and global conditions which will have a direct impact on the life of the world community of the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.).


3. On the eve of the holy month of Ramadan, the members of the Supreme Council emphasized the great position of the Holy Quran and the great position of the Prophet of Mercy, Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), and the AhlulBayt (a.s.) – which unfortunately were insulted in the Western world, in the name of freedom of expression, despite the laws of respect for the sanctity of religions – and called for greater vigilance and awakening of the Islamic world and followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) to protect their sanctity.


4. At the beginning of the fourth decade of its cultural and propaganda activities in the international arena, the World Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) emphasized the importance of rationality, spirituality, dignity, justice, resistance, as well as unity and the spirit of brotherhood in the teachings left by the AhlulBayt (a.s.), and considers their role as very key and discourse in solving the problems of Muslims. Also, the World Assembly strongly recommends the lovers and followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) to know the virtues of the words of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and to introduce them to the spiritual thirsty people of the world.


5. Expressing concern and investigating the recent situation of the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), the members of the Supreme Council express their worry regarding the increasing pressures of arrogance and global Zionism and the support of their Hebrew-Arab and Wahhabi-Salafi mercenaries against the oppressed people of the world, including people of Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Myanmar, Nigeria, etc. and he called for the special attention of human rights institutions and world legal commissions, especially international Islamic associations and organizations, to the violation of the rights of the citizens of these countries.


6. The serious expectation of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly from the seminary and academic elites of the Islamic world is to explain and describe more and more, deeply and scientifically, the reformist role of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in creating proximity among Muslims. In this regard, the Assembly must be considered and proven in terms of scientific authority and content for the community of followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).


7. The Supreme Council of the Assembly strongly condemns the passive plans of the Zionist child-killing regime to drag the Islamic countries into a losing game of the normalization of their relations with it, and emphasizes the maximum insistence and tireless resistance of the oppressed and powerful Palestinian people with the support of the solidarity of the free nations; in the days when the corrupt and repressive dictatorial government of Netanyahu is faced with complex electoral stalemates and a heavy public atmosphere by the people, groups and opposition parties, and the sound of crumbling the foundations of his empty power is heard, and with the help of God it will be accelerated by the powerful presence of Muslims and freedom-seekers of the world in various marches and ceremonies, especially the International Day of Quds.


8. Members of the Supreme Council strongly warn the international community about the dire situation in Bahrain and Palestine prisons for Covid-19, as well as the horrific inhuman and unsanitary situation in Yemen after six years of brutal aggression by the Saudi coalition, and calls for effective negotiations and agreements between Yemeni groups.


9. Finally, the Supreme Council of the Assembly while warning of the gradual assassination and erosion of the religious leaders and religious elites of Islam in Nigeria, Comoros, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, etc. by the arrogance and Zionist services and their mercenaries, calls on the international and regional forums, human rights organizations, religious scholars and the world’s elites not to remain silent in the face of these blatant violations of world peace and security, and to prosecute and demand perpetrators and indifferent officials of the mentioned organizations.

Ahl-ul-Bayt World Assembly to hold 114 World Award

Ahl-ul-Bayt World Assembly to hold 114 World Award

The Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS) World Assembly plans to organize a competition featuring Quranic activities.


Titled 114 World Award, its main aim is identifying and appreciating such activities and creating a network of Quranic initiatives of the followers of Ahl-ul-Byat (AS), the Assembly’s international deputy said.


Sheikh Mohammad Javad Zarean said a plot thatched by the enemies of Islam and Muslim unity is to spread the wrong notion that Shia Muslims do not pay attention to Quranic activities.


Fortunately, thanks to the Islamic Revolution of Iran, blood of martyrs and prudence of Imam Khomeini and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, there has been special attention to Quran recitation, Tajweed and Tafseer, he noted.


He said the first edition of the 114 World Award will be held this year in the holy month of Ramadan.


Ramadan is the month of Quran and an opportunity for reading, reciting and contemplating the Holy Book and promoting Quranic activities, he said.


The cleric noted that the difference the award has with other such competitions is that no one is invited to take part in the contest but the organizers identify Quranic activities and select and introduce the best ones.


Sheikh Zarean invited institutions and organizations active in Quranic fields to help the Assembly in holding the event.


In the first edition of the award, the focus is on arts, media and software production activities, he noted.


The cleric also noted that the Quranic activities in Iran will not be included in the selection process for the time being given the broad scope of such activities in the country.


He expected that more than 1,000 Quranic activities will be evaluated to select the best ones.

AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly should be scientific, spiritual reference of world: Ayatollah Ramazani

AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly should be scientific, spiritual reference of world: Ayatollah Ramazani

Tuesday, 30 March 2021

On the morning of Tuesday, March 30, 2021, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly met the staff and researchers of the office for Cultural Affairs of the Assembly in Qom.


“I hope we will appreciate the remaining days of the month of Sha’ban for prayers to God and recitation the supplications of Sha’banieh,” said Ayatollah “Reza Ramazani”, offering his congratulations for the Solar Hijri New Year and eves of Sha’aban.


“Prayer paves the way for walking (in the path of God). In this month (the month of Sha’ban), we must ask God to remove the veils of darkness and the veils of light from us. The veils of darkness are vices and selfishness, and the veil of light is knowledge and servitude. Sometimes the man is bound by his knowledge and relies on it and trusts it. Therefore, we must rely on divine grace. Sha’banieh supplication has many points. We ask God to forgive and transform us. We need the conditions. God changes hearts (مُقلّبَ القلوبِ),” he added, saying that Sha’banieh supplication gives hope to human beings.


“Throughout history, there have been two arrogant and the oppressed currents, and these currents continue today. The arrogant front has an evil origin because Satan was arrogant against God. The prophets and Imams (a.s.) have been to counter this current. Today, the United States has an arrogant temperament and seeks to dominate the world. Imam Khomeini (r.a.) in the middle of Sha’ban, congratulated the birthday of Imam Zaman (a.s.) to all the oppressed. Because the oppressed include Muslims,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in another part of his speech about the importance of the Velayat.


“The divine will is for the oppressed and the righteous to inherit the earth. The school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) is under Allah’s Velayat and seeks to organize the oppressed current. Guidance is an important issue. God does not give guidance to anyone. In the system of creation and legislation, God has sent prophets with books to guide mankind,” added Ayatollah Ramazani.


“Prophets and Imams have been sent (by God) to guide mankind. The greatest honor of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is to be one of the agents of guidance and to move in a direction that pleases the innate nature of man. Therefore, the Assembly must have scientific and spiritual authority, and this is an important issue. Because part of the mission of the prophets, teaching, and guidance, has been entrusted to the Assembly,” he said, speaking about the duties of the Assembly.


“We must understand that we have been given an important position and duty because we are the servants of the school and the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), and this golden Tawfiq and opportunity is unique,” emphasized the representative of the people of Gilan Province in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.


“We must train our joints, intellect, and soul. The higher we go, the greater our need for refinement and education will be, and we realize that we are small before God and only He is great. Therefore, God and the AhlulBayt (a.s.) must appear great in the eyes of man. We must know what a great position we have been given to teach the culture of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) to the world. The workplace should be a place of training. Tawakkul (trust in God), Tawassul (recourse in AhlulBayt) and planning should be in our work and we should have planning and vision in planning,” stated Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, addressing the staff of the Assembly.


“The year 1400 (solar Hijri) will be a busy year for us. We should not be satisfied with the activities we have done. We need to look at the prospect and there is a long path to be taken still. Therefore, the staff must rethink and redefine their (performance) and show initiative and innovation,” he said, appreciating the activities of various sections of the assembly last year.


“By repeating the word “change”, change does not happen. To change, we must write a plan. Having a vision means that the path must be clear. Therefore, the staff must be motivated and our vision must be international,” continued Ayatollah Ramazani, saying that in 1400 we will work for change based on the new structure.


The Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly described the expectations from different sections of the Assembly in the coming year as follows: having an international outlook and working internationally in ABNA News Agency, recognition of necessities, recognition accurate entries by researchers in Wiki Shia, addressing lifestyle issues and the field of youth and women by Thaqalayn Network, paying attention to training new staff by AhlulBayt (a.s.) University, and organizing the local offices of the Assembly and the affairs of the missionaries by the deputy for international affairs of the Assembly.


“The traditional pulpit (Minbar) and in-person communication are effective, and I advocate this, but things have to go beyond the traditional form. Today, cyberspace has become a part of people’s lives and it affects their lives, and it is necessary for us to work more in the field of cyberspace,” he also stated.


“Cyberspace, on the one hand, has created the best and unique opportunity. On the other hand, it has created an unprecedented dangerous threat. Therefore, we must hold training courses in this field and proceed with planning,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, stating that cyberspace has affected the real life of human beings.


“In the new structure of the Assembly, a general administration has been considered for cyberspace, and experts have spent hours for this plan,” he said, stating that the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly should have the production of thought.


“We need to focus on the outlets and improve them in terms of quantity and quality. If now ABNA News Agency publishes 100 news per day, it should publish 500 news per day by attracting volunteer reporters and other methods. We must be up-to-date and move forward with innovation,” Ayatollah Ramazani also said.


“In the year 1400, I have high expectations from myself and each one of you. In the new year, field studies must become operational. Also, operational cases should be bolder than case studies,” he emphasized.


“Different sections should be aware of each other’s activities. Empathy, synergy, and cooperation must be present in the Assembly. Change, is not conceptualization, it is transformation, and the Assembly must be on this path,” concluded the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly in the end.


It should be mentioned that at the beginning of the meeting, Deputy Secretary-General and Deputy of Cultural Affairs of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Hojat al-Islam “Ahmad Ahmadi Tabar”, presented a report on last year’s activities of the Cultural Deputy.


According to him, the following were parts of the activities of the Cultural Deputy of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly of the last year: Publishing 180 volumes of books, holding the international conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), launching Rahnama website and portal in more than 40 languages, producing software to introduce the works of the assembly in 5 languages, launching a digital library, organizing missionaries and native staffs in Africa and the Indian subcontinent, organizing and providing training to talented missionaries, study activities, creating a calendar including Shiites’ occasions, and presenting new designs for the Wiki Shia encyclopedia.


Ahmadi Tabar also announced the establishment of the General Directorate of Cyberspace and the General Directorate of Education in the Cultural Deputy of the Assembly for the new year.
