In a statement, ABWA denounced the crimes of terrorist groups at Kabul’s Sayed Al-Shuhada school

In a statement, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly condemned the terrorist blast on Kabul’s Sayed Al-Shuhada school, which killed 85 people and injured 147 others.


“This horrific terrorist crime, which led to the martyrdom and injury of dozens of fasting and innocent girls during the holy month of Ramadan, is a desperate attempt to make Afghanistan insecure, as well as an example of the fanaticism, stupidity, and barbarism of the Takfiri ideology,” a part of this statement reads.


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


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


“Whoever kills a soul, without [its being guilty of] manslaughter or corruption on the earth, is as though he had killed all mankind.” (Quran 5:32)


The hands of Takfiri terrorists and the enemies of the security of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan were once again stained with the blood of the oppressed and defenseless students of Sayed Al-Shuhada school in the Barchi plain of Kabul.


This painful and terrorist crime, which led to the martyrdom and injury of dozens of fasting and innocent girls during the holy month of Ramadan, is a desperate attempt to make Afghanistan insecure, as well as an example of fanaticism, stupidity, and barbarism of the Takfiri ideology.


Today, more than ever, it is incumbent upon all Muslims to offer and propagate a rational, moral, and anti-oppression interpretation of pure Islam, and to stand against prejudice and violence. All free people in the world, especially Shiite and Sunni scholars and figures, are expected to take a serious stance on such incidents, and express their disgust and hatred against the crimes of terrorist groups, against the followers of all Islamic religions.


The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly strongly condemns this great crime against humanity, and while offering condolences to the honorable families of the martyrs, and the friendly nation and government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, the assembly prays for divine mercy and forgiveness for the martyrs of the incident, asks God for immediate healing for the wounded, and patience and reward for their families.


The Assembly also urges the esteemed officials of the Government of Afghanistan to deal with the perpetrators of this tragic incident firmly, so that we do not witness such incidents again.

On occasion of Intl. Quds Day 2021, ABWA issued statement

Thursday, 06 May 2021

On the occasion of the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan in 1442 AH. (2021) and the International Quds Day, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly issued a statement.


The statement is as follows:


Statement of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on the occasion of the International Quds Day 1442 AH. (2021)


In the Name of Allah, the Crusher of the disobedient


#Today, Holy Quds is closer to us than ever. #


Peace and blessings of God be upon Imam Khomeini, who with his unique initiative, gathered the hearts of all Muslims, especially the free people of the world, like roaring floods on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, and he hit them like the Jamarat with the shouts of the Muslims against the Zionist demons.


The Resistance Front without Borders in different parts of the world has forced Israel to destroy itself at any moment by popular imitating the example of its martyred commanders, such as General Soleimani, and it has brought the Islamic Ummah and the free people of the world closer to the Holy Quds and the divine ideal every day.


Peaceful nuclear progress and the strengthening of the defense capabilities of the Islamic countries, which will not intend to retreat for a moment, have taken the peace from the occupiers of Al-Quds who aspire to domination and the usurpers who seek the false and failed Deal of the Century.


In addition to the fact that the repeated efforts of Netanyahu, the child-killer who failed to form a cabinet and the widespread popular protests against his government's contractionary policies, have led to the collapse of Israel; aimless attacks on nuclear and infrastructure facilities, continuous searches and raids on Palestinian homes, escalating crimes and violence against oppressed prisoners and detainees, delusional dreams of normalizing relations between the cowardly and dependent countries, as well as secret and failed nuclear tests, are the final efforts of the Zionist regime to escape annihilation.


But they should know that the people of the world, by condemning and seriously considering the idea of East and West Quds as invalid, and a strong emphasis on the fact that Holy Quds is always the capital of Palestine, once again more vigilant than before, are calling for the destruction of the Zionist regime, and always emphasize the verdict of Imam Khamenei, the leader of the Muslims and the free people of the world, on the “referendum plan”, both in person and in person, and they herald the declining support and imminent collapse of Western neoliberal governments in criminal America and deceptive Europe from the Zionist regime.


While inviting all its members, representatives, missionaries, and associates around the world, in the outbreak of the hand-made virus of Quid-19, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly calls on its affiliates, more vigilantly, more integrated and with more initiative than ever before, to call for the annihilation of Israel and the end of its empty power, and in any case, respond to the invitation of the Vali Faqih of the time and the constable of pure Muhammadan Islam, and know that the divine victory is near.


"O you who have faith! If you help Allah, He will help you and make your feet steady." (Quran, Surah Muhammad, verse 7)

ABWA’s Secretary-General expressed his condolences on martyrdom of General “Mohammad Ali Haghbin”

ABWA’s Secretary-General expressed his condolences on martyrdom of General “Mohammad Ali Haghbin”

In a message, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly expressed his condolences on the pseudo-martyrdom demise of General “Mohammad Ali Haghbin”, one of Gilani commanders of the Resistance Front.


The message of condolence of Ayatollah Reza Ramazani is as follows:


“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran 2:156)


The demise of Sardar (General) Haghbin, the commander who conquered (the Syrian cities of) Nubl and al-Zahra, caused great grief and sorrow.


His firm determination on the resistance front, along with his good morals and devotion to the AhlulBayt (a.s.), was always famous among his colleagues and encouraged the steely wills to overthrow the ignorant enemy and the puppets of the international arrogance (the US) on the battlefield against ISIL.


Sardar Haghbin, as a commander of the Defenders of the Shrine, raised the flag of religiosity and belief of the brave sons of Mirza Kuchak Khan region, so that the history of Gilan Province once again adds a page to the devotion of Iranian people to AhlulBayt (a.s.) and the future generation will be proud of it.


While offering my condolences the martyrdom of this commander of the Resistance Front to the Commander-in-Chief, Grand Ayatollah Khamenei, I ask God to place him next to the high-ranking martyrs, especially Haj Qasim Soleimani, and to water him from the boundless sea of the love of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and to provide patience and forbearance to his honorable wife and beloved relatives.


He lived and passed away blessedly.


Reza Ramazani

Representative of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts of the Leadership

April 20, 2021


It should be mentioned that Sardar “Mohammad Ali Haghbin” was born in 1964 in one of the villages of Langarud city in Gilan province.


Until a few years ago, this Sardar of Islam was the commander of the Quds 16 Operative Division of Gilan. Then, he was appointed as an advisor to the commander of the IRGC ground forces and the commander of the central base of Imam Hussein (a.s.) of the IRGC ground forces.


With the beginning of the activities of terrorist and takfiri groups in Syria and the spread of ISIL, the Quds Division of Gilan, under the command of Sardar Haghbin, was assigned to fight the terrorists.


He was one of the commanders of the operation in which the Shiite cities of Nubl and Al-Zahra were liberated from terrorist siege after four years.


In this operation, Sardar martyr Haj Qassem Soleimani kissed the forehead of Sardar Haghbin, the commander of the operating division, and called the liberation operation of “Nubl” and “Al-Zahra” the conquest of Khyber, and said, “For four years, we were stuck behind this door.”


Sardar Haghbin passed away yesterday due to Covid-19 virus. 

ABWA’s statement in response to strange sentence of Azerbaijan Attorney General

ABWA’s statement in response to strange sentence of Azerbaijan Attorney General

In response to the strange sentence of the Republic of Azerbaijan Attorney General, AhlulBayt World Assembly issued a statement.


The statement is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


The request for 18 years of imprisonment for Mr. Haj Ilham Aliyev, the leader of the Islamic Party of the Republic of Azerbaijan, by the country’s Attorney General, saddened the Muslims of the world - especially the Shiites and the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).


The request for a long prison sentence for this prominent cleric, who has always strived to promote Islam and has a special personality among the people of Azerbaijan in terms of piety and morality, is not acceptable at all and is against human rights laws.


In line with its inherent duty, which is to protect the rights of the world’s Shiites, reminding the religious capacity of the Muslim people and followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school of Azerbaijan in the exaltation and development of civilization and the Husseini-like efforts of Ulama (Islamic scholars) and Shiites of the country on the battlefields of the recent war in Karabakh, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly expect the government of the Republic of Azerbaijan – with a large population of Shiites – while tactfully stand against the divisive evil plots of the enemies of Islam, to pave the way for pardon and release of Haj Ilham Aliyev and all prisoner Islamists.


It is hoped that international and human rights organizations, the European Union, and especially Islamic countries, will be more sensitive to such issues and will take timely action to protect the rights of Muslims.

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.

Message of ABWA’s Secretary-General on 1st Quranic “World Prize 114” internationally

Message of ABWA’s Secretary-General on 1st Quranic “World Prize 114” internationally

In a message on the occasion of holding the first Quranic international “World Prize 114”, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani emphasized, “By participating in this Quranic program, dear preachers, esteemed members of the Assembly, and all esteemed colleagues and companions are expected to pave the way for the increasing development of Quranic culture among the followers of AhlulBayt in the world.”

The message of the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly of the is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


الحمدُ للَّه و سُبحانَکَ؛ اللَّهُمَّ صلِّ علی محمدٍ و آلهِ مظاهر جمالِک و جلالِک و خزائنِ اسرارِ کتابِکَ الذی تجلّی فیه الأَحدیّةُ بِجمیعِ أسمائکَ حتّی المُسْتَأْثَرِ منها الّذی لا یَعْلَمُهُ غَیرُک؛


قالَ رسولُ اللَّه صلَّی اللَّه علیه و آله و سلَّم: *انّی تارکٌ فیکُمُ الثّقلَیْنِ کتابَ اللَّهِ و عترتی أهلَ بیتی؛ فإِنَّهُما لَنْ یَفْتَرِقا حَتّی‏ یَرِدَا عَلَیَّ الْحَوضَ.


During his blessed life, especially in the last days of his honorable life, the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) ordered the Muslims of the world to make two great and precious deposits, namely, “the Holy Quran” and “Itrat” (AhlulBayt), and he considered the way of salvation, happiness and excellence of the Islamic Ummah in following the two together at the same time.


Today, in the era of the revival of Islam, whose enemies want to separate Muslims from the Quran and Itrat, and intending to destroy the unity of Muslims, they are doing everything to destroy the global discourse of genuine Islam; The way of salvation and happiness and victory is the same as it was: Clinging on the two precious weights that the Prophet deposited and commanded and bequeathed to the entire Muslim Ummah.


The vicissitude history of the Islamic Ummah is proof that whenever the Muslims, by the order of the Prophet, placed these two weights in front of them and clung to them, they witnessed scientific, cultural, social, and economic conquests and prosperities. Whenever they are neglected or one of those two weights is neglected, Islamic Ummah is not entitled to anything but stagnation, domination, tyranny, poverty, and misery in all aspects.


Following the method of the Infallible Imams (a.s.) as translators of revelation and true interpreters of the word of God, who received the entire Quran from the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) and sacrificed their lives to revive and establish the Quran, the World Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) is proud to establish and strengthen the movement for the development of Quranic culture among followers and lovers of the AhlulBayt, by emphasizing the excellence and maturity of them, in order to revive their Quranic values and acquaint them more with revelatory teachings.


Therefore, the opportunity of the holy month of Ramadan – which is the spring of Quran, according to one of the Imams – should be, in the true sense of the word, the beginning of a process of prosperity to the spread of Quranic culture among the followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) throughout the world. Efforts to design and implement various Quranic programs from teaching and research to promoting Quranic culture in attractive formats for different types of audiences, especially youth and adolescents, such as producing artistic products and influential media, setting up home and community Quranic circles, Quran recitation ceremonies and daily recitations, various competitions, Quran-based pulpits and lectures, etc.; the atmosphere of houses, mosques and husseiniyahs, the virtual space and the gatherings of the followers of God will illuminate and perfume them in this luminous month.


The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly intends to promote this enlightened current, and valuable Quranic movement, which began at the same time with the middle of Shaban, the birth of the fourteenth speaker Quran, the and savior of humanity, Imam Mahdi (a.s.), and will be held on the great feast of Ghadir, by supporting the Quranic activities of Quranic centers, preachers and activists by launching the “World Prize 114”.


By participating in this Quranic program, dear preachers, esteemed members of the Assembly, and all esteemed colleagues and companions are expected to pave the way for the increasing development of Quranic culture among the followers of AhlulBayt in the world, and the result of this blessed effort, would be the pleasure of God Almighty and the blessed Thaqalayn (Quran and AhlulBayt) as the freshness of life in this world and the preservation of the Hereafter for all.


Peace be upon you and God bless you
