SHAFAQNA -Â Hujjatulislam Lakzaei, Deputy of Cultural Affairs of the Ahlul Bayt (AS) World Assembly, on the occasion of the International Conference of Imam Sajjad (AS) in an interview with ABNA correspondent talked about the importance of this conference and said: “The mission of the Ahlul Bayt (AS) World Assembly is a global mission, so it has to pay a global attention on the Ahlul Bayts (AS).”
He went on to say: “In terms of our religious principles best and most reliable method in this case is to present the strategies that Ahlul Bayts (AS) had in their lives to the world. When we look at their strategies we understand that they were thinking global. For example, Imam Ali (AS)’s method in governing was based on justice, and today justice is the global issue. I mean if non-Muslims love Imam Ali (AS) it is because of his justice.”
“Imam Hussein (AS) revolted against oppression and injustice, and also we see that what he did has a global message to all people; or in the era of Imam Sadiq (AS) and Imam Baqir (AS) we see they moved for improving knowledge and the flourishing of science; and these things are valuable things for all people,” he added.
Hujjatulislam Lakzaei also referred to the global capacity of the imam Sajjad (AS) teachings and said: “A friend told me that I gave one of Imam Sajjad’s supplications (prayers) to a Christiane priest and he became very interested in that and said, “I bring that supplication to the Church and read that.” Then I gave him Sahifa Sajjadiya and he thanked me and said: “you gave me a great book; the litanies of that are so amazing.”
In continuing his speech, Lakzaei also mentioned the works of the International Conference of Imam Sajjad (AS) and said: “In this conference we want to unveil two new works of Ayatollah Asefi for the first time.”
“242 articles were also submitted to the Secretariat of the Conference; from these articles we finally accepted 76 articles and we have published them in 4 volumes and are going to unveil them in Imam Sajjad (AS) conference,” he said at the end.
The International Conference of Imam Sajjad Zeinul Abedin (AS) will be held on the first day of the General Assembly of the Ahlul Bayt (AS) World Assembly.
