Women clergies can play Hazrat Zainab’s role in propagating religion: Ayatollah Ramazani

The Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly and his accompanying delegation, who are in Iraq, visited the “Jameah al-Fatemiah”.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly and his accompanying delegation, who are in Iraq, visited the “Jameah al-Fatemiah”.

Ayatollah Reza Ramazani delivered a speech to female professors and clergies and said, “In this space, we felt spirituality, sincerity, devotion, self-sacrifice, and all valuable concepts. If we have (divine) success to meet the Supreme Leader of the Revolution, we will send the greetings of all of you, who are devoted to the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.), to him.”

“It is necessary to honor the memory of Ayatollah Asefi, the founder of the “Jameah al-Fatemiah”, who laid the foundation of goodness. May God reunite him with his friends and the infallible Imams (a.s.). I also appreciate Hojat al-Islam Behbahani for having a good relationship with this institute,” he also said.

“Previously (before the Islamic Revolution of Iran), Muslims were marginalized in the world and were not visible. Some did not allow the power and spirituality of Muslims to be spread. There was nothing of Muslim intellectual greatness in the universities of the world. There was no government that would achieve justice, and revive resistance, justice, and rationality in the true sense of the word. By the grace of God, and thanks to the presence of Imam Khomeini, a great movement was created. Many people did not believe that there would be a revolution that would pave the way for the emergence of Imam Mahdi (a.s.). God willing, this revolution (Islamic Revolution of Iran) will lead to the emergence of Imam Mahdi (a.s.),” stated the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, saying that the Islamic world is in a special situation today.

“(Today) in the scientific centers of the world, they talk about Islam and the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) and Islam and the dignity of Muslims. Today, Muslims live with dignity everywhere in the world. Today, Muslims are honored and live with dignity. We are talking about the Islamic government, which paved the way for the development of the culture of the AhlulBayt (a.s.),” he said on the current position of Islam and Muslims.

“The most important point that caused this great movement, which 42 years have passed, to create a global change as a divine help, was the beliefs and faith of Imam Khomeini,” said Ayatollah Ramazani about the characteristics of Imam Khomeini and the Islamic Revolution of Iran.

“Martyr Motahhari said about Imam Khomeini: I saw Imam Khomeini with four beliefs. He believed in his God. God was present throughout the life of Imam Khomeini. The name and truth of God were in all existence and the mind, heart, and joints of Imam Khomeini. The second faith was that he believed in his own way. His goal was to revive religion. Imam Khomeini wanted the individual, social, cultural, and political rules of religion to be displayed, and religion to be present in social life. Through the efforts of Imam Khomeini, religion manifested in social spheres. In addition, Imam Khomeini believed in his ummah. He believed in men and women who could make a difference,” he added.

“Less than a hundred years ago, the conditions of the Muslims and the domination of the great powers were such that no one believed that Islam would be loved in the world. People who disrespect the Quran and insult the Prophet (p.b.u.h) are afraid of the greatness and glory of Islam and have seen its effect. Does anyone dare to insult the Quran, the AhlulBayt (a.s.), and Islamic values today? (Of course, not) because Muslims will rise in the world. Did anyone think that there would be a change in the women’s movement and that women would be the source of honor for the world? Today, women learn the teachings of religion to spread like Hazrat Zainab (a.s.) in the world,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“We must learn religion comprehensively, deeply, accurately, and for the sake of God. We must learn and teach religion for the sake of God. God glorifies such a seeker of knowledge. Ayatollah Bahjat said, “If you act on what you know, God will give you a knowledge that you cannot learn anywhere”,” he emphasized.

“In the future, you can play the role of a teacher and educator and create a great movement like the faithful and brave women of the beginning of Islam. Teaching and educating is the job of the prophets, and we need teachers who study and learn well to propagate and teach the religion properly,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, addressing the women clergies of “Jameah al-Fatemiah”.

“You have been given the divine success that you can play the role of Hazrat Zainab (a.s.) in propagating Islam. You can also convey to the world the great message of the (Islamic) revolution and the fundamental change it has brought about in this century. This great work must be properly introduced, and you can play this role,” he added, stating that the religion of God is spread through education.

“Today’s situation is special, and there has never been a time like the present for the propagation of Islam. Therefore, we must learn the tools of propagation, and get familiar with cyberspace and propagation skills,” emphasized the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“One of the characteristics of the era of the pre-advent of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) is that the level of human knowledge and intellects rises. Imam Mahdi’s grace to humanity means that the conditions of society are prepared in such a way that human intellect grows, and his level of understanding increases, Like the time of Imam Khomeini and after the Islamic Revolution of Iran when the level of understanding of our society about religion increased. Imam Khomeini meant Hajj with “Disavowal of Polytheists”, and taught us that “Ashura” should play a role in reforming society. Imam Khomeini interprets Ghadir as meaning that people should play a role in their destiny,” he stated, referring to the characteristics of the era of pre-advent of Imam Mahdi (a.s.).

“According to some hadiths, some of the senior companions of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) are among women. In the age of advent (of Imam Mahdi), various groups in the world will spread religious knowledge and rationality, justice, and resistance. Therefore, we have many duties, and we must know our mission and duty properly, and spread the message of religion,” Ayatollah Ramazani added.

“Spirituality causes a value change in human society. Today, human society is thirsty for spirituality and pure Muhammadan Islam and the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.). If we introduce these concepts correctly, the whole world will follow them,” he added, emphasizing the need to properly understand the knowledge of religion and spirituality.

“Ignorance is the worst disease in human society, and the role of preachers is to eradicate ignorance. Imam Hussein (a.s.) sacrificed his life to eradicate ignorance. Imam Ali (a.s.) says that if a society lives in ignorance, the merits will lose their values and the divine saints (God’s Friends or Owlia Allah) will not have their place,” concluded the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

Before Ayatollah Ramazani’s speech, officials of the “Jameah al-Fatemiah” explained the institute’s activities.

It should be mentioned that the “Jameah al-Fatemiah” School was established 14 years ago by Ayatollah Asefi, and is dedicated to Pakistani and Indian sisters from first grade to diploma (last year of high school) and seminary.
