The central office of His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) participated in the Preachers Conference held on Kufa University hall as preparation measures to organize the preachers’ schedules during the coming blessed Ramadan.

Sayed Asaad Aburiha delivered the message of the office which contained directives and instructions, chief among them are to create Islamic atmosphere through keeping fasting, rejecting breaking fast all over Iraq through the delegates and representatives’ following up, in cooperation with the local official authorities, not to mention the significance of commemorating the rituals of religion which connect the society with those values that the infallible Imams (PBUH) represented.

The message also emphasized the importance of caring for the orphans and checking on the needs of the wounded and martyrs’ families, saying that we should send them submission messages for what they have sacrificed in liberating Iraq.

The Message of His Eminence the Grand Ayatollah Sheik Basheer Hussein Al-Najafy (may Allah prolong his life)  to Preachers and Husseini Speakers

Shabaan 9th 1439/ April 25th 2018

Thanks and praise are due to Allah, peace and blessings are upon the Messenger and his family and permanent curse is upon their enemies till the day of reckoning.

Allah says “And hasten to a forgiveness from your Lord and a Paradise as wide as heaven and earth, prepared for the cautious”. Allah is the most truthful.

Preachers and religion promoters, Husseini speakers and religion speakers all over the Arab countries, may Allah bless your work and grant you all the best. You quench the thirst of the sons of this country through teaching people the religious rulings of the Messenger and his family (peace and blessings are upon them all).

Brothers, we are ready to welcome the blessed month of Ramadan; the month of fasting, the month of good people’s hearts, the focal point of believers and followers of the Awaited Imam (may Allah hasten his reappearance).

As this month brings to us the sacred atmosphere, it calls us for ridding ourselves of the worldly things, self- caprices, curb the self from all obsessions to set it in piety. It is known that being pious is a trigger to Allah’s consent. So, we all have to obtain such divine award through our deeds in Ramdan in which we have blessings to offer fasting. In this regard, we draw our respected preachers to the following:

1.       You have to work hard to gather the largest number of people so that you can do your preaching in a good way during this blessed month. It is recommended that the preacher gets benefit from the notable figures in areas that the preachers visit. The preacher should pass the greetings, regards and directives of the Religious authorities to people. When preaching in different places, preachers should take into account all the good social conventions, and their visits should not charge the host any monetary and/or social considerations.

2.       You are to check on the area where you are preaching through accompanying the notable figures there to check how people are well committed to fasting, seeking help from the local authorities to prevent public intentional and unintentional breaking fast in order to create Islamic atmosphere in all means possible.

3.       We should urge people to take care of mujahidin and martyrs’ families who sacrificed the most valuable things for their homeland. There must be regular visits, accompanying by the old men of the rea – not the young ones- to collect donations to give them to the families with humility and respect for these families, showing their martyrs virtues and status on Iraqi and Islamic nation.

4.       You have to call people for commemorating the rituals of the religion such as birthday and martyrdom anniversaries of our Infallible Imams and the heroes of Islam in order to make such persona examples to be followed by our generations and to work hard to prevent all malicious suspicions by enemies of the religion. You may do this with all your wit and wisdom, with assistance of the Religious Hawza whenever needed.

5.       Your speeches and gatherings should be concerned with rooting out the suspicions on Islam, the Religious Authorities (Marjaia) and following the Religious Authorities (Taqleed). We have to bring into religion the largest number of the young people, especially college students. These young people are the most important elements in society; these people are the ones whom the enemies of Islam are after. Through these young people, enemies of Islam can promote rumors against true Islam. Our duty is to let these young people know the sound Arab nature which is to have dignity and honor as well as rejection to submit to foreigners. We have to remind the young people of these features that distinguish them from other nations.

Finally, I pray to Allah to grant you with all the best, accept your deeds and increase the rewards. Allah is the guardian of the righteous. Wassalm.
