His Eminence explained the role of Marji'iyya and the Hawza (Islamic Seminary) in having the correct religious, humanitarian and ethical understandings firmly rooted amongst people, in order for them to preserve their identity. Thus society can keep to the great values of Islam which come from the instructions of God Almighty in the Holy Quran and the lives of the Holy Infallibles (peace be upon them). Through attaching oneself to such values, one will be able to defend himself, his land and those things which he deems sanctified, without the need of having such weaponry that the enemies may have, in terms of preparedness and quantity.

The guest expressed his utmost happiness in having this opportunity to meet him, and appreciated the positive role of Marji'iyya in serving society.

Day Questions

In Quran in Surah al Maarij there is mentioned SHADAAT meaning to give more than 2 testimonies then why we give SHAHDATAIN 2 testimonies?

Apparently the term "shahadat" does not mean the testimonies that the religion are based on them like testifying to the lord with monotheism, to the prophet with the prophecy and to the imams with imamate since it is enough to fulfill these testimonies by believing in them. The verse is praising the devotees because of their fulfillment to the obligatory testimony which is testifying against or with others to establish justice. It is one of the good characters of devotees that the verse is praising them because of it.
