AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): In the 17th episode of the special internet program “Facing the Sky”, which is broadcast on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, pointing out that the Imams (a.s.) have the best attributes and characteristics and we should consider them as role models, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani Gilani stated, “The knowledge of good and evil is based on Fitrah (nature), and man can know good and evil with reason and thought.”

“A believer should do good deeds and maintain them throughout his life,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, pointing out that human beings are naturally inclined to goodness and avoid evil.

“On the other hand, society must abandon evil and refrain from spreading it,” he emphasized, stating that the Islamic society should also tend towards the good in practice and achieve it.

“The spread of evil, Fahsha (lewdness) and Monkar (iniquity) leads the society astray and causes losses,” Ayatollah Ramazani clarified.

Referring to the fact that two groups of people live in communities, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly added, “The first type is benevolent human beings and the second type are human beings who do ugly deeds. Officials should pay special attention to both groups.”

“Public charity creates a kind of encouragement for other people to participate in good deeds,” he said, stating that in the hadiths, the public charity has been ordered.

“Encouraging good deeds causes those who openly do evil deeds to be forbidden,” Ayatollah Ramazani added.

“The official and manager, with any rank and position in a society with Islamic rule, should not have the same view of a bad and a good person,” noted the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Of course, paying attention to citizenship rights is a different matter, but our view of people should be based on criteria and values,” he said, stating that it is very clear that the believer and the wicked should not be looked at in the same way.

“In terms of valuation, a person who believes in God and religious beliefs is different from someone who has no belief in God and religious principles,” Ayatollah Ramazani emphasized.

“The equality of the wicked and the virtuous man causes the virtuous man to be reluctant to act and the wicked person to continue his deviant path,” noted the Secretary-General of the World Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), referring to the letter of Imam Ali (a.s.) to Malik Ashtar.

“According to the advice of Imam Ali (a.s.), the person in charge must act according to what people do and always encourage them to do good deeds,” he emphasized.

“It is narrated in the book of Sunan al-Nabi that the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) encouraged and praised good deeds and condemned ugly deeds,” emphasized Ayatollah Ramazani, referring to the behavior of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) in the face of good and ugly deeds.

“Just as encouraging a child to do a good deed keeps it going, so does reminding a lot and encouraging people in the community to do a good deed inspire a spirit of charity in people,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Encouraging those in society who give alms, help, care for orphans, solve problems and alleviate poverty will continue to do good deeds, and even encourage those who fail to do so,” he mentioned.

“According to Imam Ali (a.s.), valuations in society should be based on certain criteria and the efforts and work of each person should be measured by the value and position of that person,” Ayatollah Ramazani clarified.

“Also, a person’s low position should not cause his great efforts to be underestimated,” the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly added, pointing out that the greatness of a person due to his position should not cause his low efforts to be considered high.

“When a person is in a position, expectations are higher than his,” he clarified, stating that the people in charge in the Islamic society have many responsibilities to achieve justice and equality.

“If the official betrayed and the secret agents testified to the truth of this matter, the official should be dealt with severely,” Ayatollah Ramazani stated.

“Punishment of a traitor is corporal punishment, confiscation of illegally obtained property, introduction as a traitor and deprivation of government responsibility,” emphasized the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly Referring to the punishment of the traitor in the words of Imam Ali (a.s.).

“The betrayal of any government official in any position, if proven, must be dealt with and punished with the most severe form,” he clarified.

Pointing out that all people, even in the farthest region of the country, seek to achieve and taste justice in society, Ayatollah Ramazani noted, “In order to achieve this, the judiciary must deal seriously with the traitors and create judicial security.”

“Imam Ali (a.s.) is a person who always worshiped at night, fought bravely on the battlefield, and when he was the ruler of the society, he treated the violators and traitors seriously,” he clarified.

“The moral and mystical character of Imam Ali (a.s.) does not contradict his decisive character in
dealing with traitors,” said the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
