His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) welcomed
Ayatollah Sayed Alawi Boroujerdi and the delegation accompanying him.
His Eminence emphasized that the most important thing
in Islam is the revival of religious rites, foremost among which are the rites
of Imam Hussein (PBUH) and the martyrdom of Lady Fatima al-Zahra (PBUH) and that
commemorating religious rites is a revival of religion.
The dialogue took place about the importance and status
of the Hawza in general, and the importance and greatness of the Mother
Seminary in Najaf, and its role over centuries.
For his part, the scholar Al-Boroujerdi stressed the
importance and position of the seminary in Najaf and its great jihadi history
through which the religion and its pillars were preserved by its men, great
scholars, and great authorities.
