YOU MUST CONFRONT THE CULTURAL ATTACK AND WARN OF THE DANGER OF UNCONTROLLED USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA



1/1/2021



*  If we think about the social calamities that afflict the nation, we will find that the main reason for them is to leave enjoining good and forbidding evil.

The representative of His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) and the director of his office His Eminence Sheikh Ali Al-Najafy delivered the address of the Central Office of the His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) on the female-speakers and preachers of the Husseini pulpit held in the Fatimia Husayniyah, where Al--Najafy stressed the need to adhere to the knowledge of religion and its statement to society in order to advance the reality of society, religious knowledge, and community encouragement to enjoin good and forbid evil to advance the reality of the moral community, leave all manifestations of corruption and emphasize on countering the cultural attack.

His Eminence warned of the danger of uncontrolled use of Sharia controls on social media, urging the believers that women have the greatest role in preserving society through the fact that women are the ones who make men by raising their children and supporting their families.

The following is the text of the address issued by the office of His Eminence (May Allah prolong his life):

The address of the office of His Eminence, the Grand Ayatollah, the great religious authority, Sheikh Bashir Hussain Al-Najafy (may Allah prolong his life), to the female- speakers and preachers of the Husseini pulpit.

In the name of Allah, the most Compassionate, the most Merciful

Praise be to Allah who guided us together, and prayers and peace be upon the one who was sent as a mercy to the worlds, Muhammad bin Abdullah and upon his honorable family, and curse all their enemies until the Day of Judgment. Allah, the Exalted, said: (كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ). (You were the best of a nation that brought people out to enjoin good and forbid evil and to believe in Allah). Allah is the highest, the most truthful.

O honorable ceremony, Allah sent down the Islamic religion at the hands of the great Messenger Muhammad bin Abdullah (may Allah’s prayers be upon him and his family) and preserved it through the efforts of the pure imams (peace be upon them). The Prophet is the one who brought the Sharia, and the imams are those who Allah preserved his religion with them. The imams (may Allah’s prayers be upon them) bear different types of affliction and adversity, and they gave their pure souls for the sake of religion until the master of the martyrs Imam Hussain (peace be upon him) made his revival a means of preserving the religion, enjoining good and forbidding evil, where he said: To seek reform in my grandfather's ummah, I want to enjoin good and forbid evil, and to walk with my grandfather's life, and my father Ali bin Abi Talib.  This religion consists of beliefs (the fundamentals of religion) and belief in Allah, the Messenger, the Qur’an, the Resurrection Day and the Imamate of the Imams, and that Allah is just and does not wrong. The other part is the branches of prayer, fasting, Hajj, Zakat, enjoining good and forbidding evil and assuming the Prophet and his pure family and their obedience and disassociating from the enemies of Islam and the enemies of the Prophet and the people of his household the pure (peace be upon them).

Allah (the Exalted) has made enjoining good and forbidding evil one of the foundations of Islam and an important part of its being. So,  we must all pay attention to this obligation to guide ourselves and take into account our directives to our people and children in light of the true religion, and we enjoin others with good and ban them from evil. In this regard, we should turn to things:

The first thing: Enjoining good and forbidding evil has been emphasized in Sharia law, so that the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him) reported: “do not leave enjoining good and preventing evil, for the evil ones will hold power over you to the extent that you pray for Allah but Allah does not respond to your prayers”. We know that Imam Hussein’s (peace be upon him) purpose of rise and martyrdom is the performance of these two honorable duties, namely, enjoining good and forbidding evil.

The second thing: If we reflect on the social calamities that afflicted the nation, especially our dear Iraq, and the social corruption that we are still facing, we would find that the main reason for it is to leave the act of enjoining good and forbidding the evil. So, everyone must forbid himself from the evils in speech and action, and even in the world of thought and imagination, then he seeks to reform his children and his family, ordering them to do good and forbid evil. We all see that the corruption of most families and children is the result of parents' negligence of enjoining good and forbidding evil in raising children.

The third matter: preachers [males and females] who speak and clarify the virtues and misfortunes of Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) must pay attention to the obligation of enjoining good and forbidding evil in an effective manner so that the call to the beneficiaries to adhere to religion is among the virtues and misfortunes of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) so that its influence is greater.  Husseini preachers should fulfill the right of this honorable pulpit, and this right cannot be fulfilled without enjoining good and forbidding evil. Since the female preachers of the pulpit are communicated inside homes and in the midst of families, we emphasize that every effort is made to emphasize chastity and the veil. Certain narrations about the honorable imams and verses that any woman who discloses part from her body which forbidden to be shown, Allah will burn that part in the fire of Hell for long periods. Also, not to mix with those whom it is not permissible to mix with, to confront the cultural attack, to warn about the danger of uncontrolled use of social media according to the Sharia, and to alert the believers that women have the greatest role in preserving society through the fact that women are the ones who make men by raising her children and supporting her family.

In conclusion, we pray Allah to grant success and enable the pioneers of the al-Husseini pulpit to fully perform their duty.
