Ayatollah Ramazani's message of condolences on demise of Ayatollah Zia Abadi

In a message, the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, offered his condolences on the demise of the Ayatollah Zia Abadi.


The text of the message of Ayatollah Reza Ramazani is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful


The demise of divine and moral scholar, “Ayatollah Haj Sayed Muhammad Zia Abadi”, caused grief and sorrow.


He devoted his blessed life to studying, propagating and teaching the lessons of the Holy Quran and AhlulBayt (a.s.) and dedicated many students to the Islamic community.


Today, the academic and practical life of that moral scholar and the preacher of the Quran and the school of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) can be a role model for honorable clergies and scholars in sincere propagation and performing religious mission, and certainly our society needs such moral and spiritual scholars more than ever so that they can add Quranic truths and religious teachings into the Islamic society with their holy souls.


In addition to his sermons and ethics class sessions that quenched the thirst for truth, his various charitable activities and support for the deprived and oppressed were characteristics of the life of that respected scholar.


On the loss of that teacher of the illuminating teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), I offer my condolences to Imam Mahdi (a.s.), the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the seminaries of Tehran, Qazvin and his respected family, students and enthusiasts and I pray to God the companionship with the Quran and God’s friends for the deceased, and patience for his family and relatives.

Although the death of this dear athlete and artist was tragic for our people – especially for the youth and the sports and artistic community – but in the days of his illness and after his death, social media was full of messages of “family friendship”, “service to parents” and “love to mother” – an issue that currently is the need of all human societies.


From God, I ask for mercy and forgiveness for the deceased and patience for all the relatives – especially your Excellency and his grieving mother.

Statement of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on occasion of martyrdom of Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (s.a.)

Statement of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on occasion of martyrdom of Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (s.a.)

Monday, 18 January 2021

In statement, AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly has issued a statement on occasion of martyrdom of Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (a.s.).


The full text of the message is as follow:


«In His Name, The Most High»


«Peace of Allah be upon you, O truthful and pure, Ladyof the Women of Paradise and all Women of the Worlds, from the first to the last»


The days of commemorating the character of HazratFatimahPBUH have arrived once again; The season of renewing ourvow as lovers and followers of the Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.), with a Modelof a pure Muslim lady, who herself never failed or even hesitated in remaining faithful and loyal to the divine covenant, in following the footsteps courseof Prophethood and Imamate,and in sacrificing her wealth, health, and even progeny for the true and sublime cause of Islam. The Holy Qur’an puts it as:«Those themselves are theones who are (really) truthful» (49:15)


The principle of Imamateand Wilayah of the Ahlul-Bayt (PBUH), if accompanied by empathy, sincere support, and practical coordination of the Ummah(community) with the divine leader, is the chief guarantor for dismantling oppression and is the uniqueand irreplaceable axis of unity, peace, security and justice; a principlethat has been emphasized by Hazrat Zahra (PBUH) as she is quoted to have said: “… and (Allah) has rendered obedience to us a system for the integrity ofthe Nation, and our imamate (Leadership)as a means for immunity againstdivision and disintegrity”. (Dala’ilul Imamah, p. 33)


But nowadays, and after the enemies of Islam and the obstinate “Muslim-looking”and Takfirist groupslike ISIS had become frustrated and crestfallenwith their wicked plans for launching seditious disputes and creating an atmosphere of hatred, enmity, division and schismatism within the Ummah and thereby inciting Sunni and Shiite religious wars,have recently come up with yet another and even more vicious idea of introducing and supporting fake Muftis and References who dare to issue fictitious rulings that lead to religious discord and instigate disunity.Most recently and in an unprecedented move, they have even sought bringing the effective language of arts to the servitude of their mischievous intentions. They have embarked upon producingone-sided films and documentary looking programsthat feature and narrate controversial issues and events that serve to widen the hair cracks present within the body of the Ummah.But today, thanks to Allah, awakening of Muslims and their vigilance and adherence to the Pure Mohammadan School, and most importantly by means of Fatwas issued by Great References and prominentUlama and Scholars,those who oppose the concept of unity of Islamic Ummahhave become conspicuously disgraced more than ever.


The Ahlul-Bayt (PBUH) World Assembly while honoring the high position of the Infallible Imams (PBUT) and their revered mother Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (PBUH) beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), and offering condolences and expressing commiserationon the Fatimiyah days(the anniversary of her martyrdom), strongly condemns any actions taken under the pretext of defending thedaughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and explicitly separates its stance and line of thought and practicefrom those who insist on magnifying differences and divisionsamongMuslims and as such incite conspiracies against them. On this sorrowful occasion that should be dedicated to renewing our loyalty and commitment to the Divine Wilayah, the Ahlul-Bayt (PBUT) World Assembly Calls the Nation of Qur’an and Itrahto increase its efforts in deepening and widening its scope of insight.


This Assembly (which is attributed to the family of the Prophet) humbly demands all Lovers and followers of the Holy Beings (PBUT), especially itsaffiliates, and all Ahlul-Bayt- related associations, centers,institutions, seminaries, as well as all sympathetic scholars of Pure Muhammadan Islam, in every corner of the world to help putting an end to this sinister plot and commemorate theseFatimiyah Days with extreme vigilance, and in accordance with pertinent local conditions. The Islamic Ummah cannot take such seditions any more, and must raise itself to a level that truly enables it to fulfill its responsibilities and duties in uniting the Islamic society and paving the way for Islamic moderation and rationality. Thus, it must utilize all its capacities in the cyberspace and in printed, radio, and TV media to implement and actualize this Fatimi Culture. It goes without saying that at this critical juncture, supporting and defending similar activities carried out by our wise and sage Sunni Brethren will be very helpful and of outmost importance.

In a statement, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly condemned the killing of Hazare Shiites in Machhi, Pakistan.


In the statement, calling the international organizations to fulfill their legal and international duties, the assembly drew everyone's attention to the danger of the extremist and criminal group, ISIL.


The assembly also appreciated Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi for his guiding message, and Pakistan's Prime Minister for consolation with the martyrs' families.


The statement is as follows:


In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“Those who do wrong will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned!” (The Holy Quran, 26:227)


The evil hands of the Takfiri terrorists were once again stained with the blood of the oppressed and Muslim people of Pakistan.


The crime of the terrorist-takfiri group “DAESH” in the Machhi coal mine in Balochistan province in the beheading and martyrdom of 11 oppressed and innocent Hazara miners, wounded the hearts of free people, especially the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) in all parts of the world and angered them about this horrible crime.


Condemning this terrorist and inhumane act and expressing sympathy with the bereaved families of the martyrs of this painful incident and wishing them patience and reward, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly calls on all international organizations, especially the United Nations, to fulfill their legal and international duties to prevent such criminal incidents and to take the fight against terrorism seriously.


The assembly insists that the organizations must also be aware of the fact that the danger of this extremist and criminal group will affect all of humanity, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, and they must take practical and preventive measures to counter them.


The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly considers it necessary to appreciate the Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi who, with his instructive message, broke the deadlock created for the burial of the martyrs; and thanks the stance of Pakistani scholars in support of the verdict of the Shiite source of emulation.


The Assembly praised the action of the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr. Imran Khan, in acknowledging the oppression of the Hazare Shiites of this country and also the visit to Quetta and the consolation of the families of the martyrs and while appreciating him and other Pakistani government, military and security officials, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly calls on them to take special measures to identify and punish the perpetrators of this crime and prevent such incidents from happening.


In the end, we offer our condolences to the bereaved families for this great tragedy, and wish them patience and reward, and the highest degrees for their dear martyrs.
