REPRESENTATIVE OF HIS EMINENCE AYATOLLAH AL-NAJAFY WELCOMES A DELEGATION OF MUSLIM SCHOLARS FROM BRITAIN
The representative of His
Eminence Ayatollah Al-Najafy (may Allah prolong his life) and the director of
his central office in Najaf Al-Ashraf, His Eminence Sheikh Ali Al-Najafy,
welcomed a delegation of Muslim scholars from Britain.
His Eminence Sheikh Al-Najafy delivered a welcoming speech to the delegation,
affirming that the Islamic community is facing a major battle against every
relationship that connects human beings with Allah (Almighty) in general and
against Islam in particular, as well as all forms of religiousness and
manifestations of faith. He explained that there are forces trying to distort
the relationship between human beings and Allah (Almighty) to weaken the
individual and consequently weaken the society as a whole, using slogans and
ideas to attract the minds of certain segments of society.
His Eminence confirmed that some try to exploit the idea of women's freedom in
society to achieve their agendas by undermining the relationship between human
beings and values and principles. In reality, Islam has greatly elevated the
status of women, better than any other direction.
Furthermore, His Eminence pointed out that it is the duty of those responsible
for the process of religious preaching and guidance to diagnose the problems,
refute doubts, and uncover conspiracies to enhance the relationship between
human beings and Allah (Almighty). The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him
and his family) established many traditions and laws that were passed down from
the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them) in life. If individuals adhere to all the
traditions of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) and
his teachings, happiness, and peace will be achieved.
