Representative of Khorasan Razavi in the Assembly of Experts:‎
The enemies seek to undermine the greatness of the Islamic Seminary
Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Khorasani stressed upon the necessity for the Islamic Seminary ‎to respond to the needs of society and added, “Today, the enemies are seeking to undermine ‎the greatness of the seminary and break the respect of the religious leaders.”‎

RNA – Speaking at a ceremony commemorating the death anniversary of Ayatollah Mortaza ‎Ashrafi-Shahroudi in Qom, Hujjat al-Islam Seyyed Ahmad Hoseyni-Khorasani referred to the ‎status and virtue of knowledge and said, “In narrations, it has always been emphasized that the ‎status of knowledge is higher than worship to the point where the narrations state that the ‎status of the beneficiality of a scholar in regard to religion and society is higher than the status ‎of a hundred thousand worshipers‏.‏‎”‎


The representative of the people of Khorasan Razavi province in the Assembly of Experts said, ‎‎“From these sort of narrations we understand that that knowledge has importance and must ‎benefit society and the people and answer their legitimate questions and needs‏.‏‎” ‎


Referring to the role of the great scholars in the face of the evil plots of the enemies, he added, ‎‎“These are scholars of religion have realized that the devils have opened their traps to eliminate ‎the beliefs of the people and therefore, they are striving day and night to negate any acts of ‎sedition and prevent innovations‏.‏‎”‎


Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Khorasani explained that in the era of the occultation of Imam al-‎Mahdi, the great scholars and the Islamic Seminaries carry the message of the prophets and ‎the divine vicegerents and said, “The era of occultation is an era of oppressive sedition and ‎these sources of emulation, scholars and seminaries – as the pillars of religion – have prevented ‎distortion, sedition and deviation and will continue to prevent them.”‎


Noting that the clergy are the shelters of the people at different levels, His Eminence said, ‎‎“Today, apart from any prejudice, it can be said that the seminaries and religious scholars have ‎the power to protect Islam and preserve it in various places. On this basis, we must be careful ‎that this great power isn’t defeated by the enemies‏.‏‎”‎


He stated that one of the features of the Islamic Seminary is its modernity and emphasized, “By ‎answering the needs of the day, the seminary is considered as the sanctuary of the people and ‎is the protector of the territorial integrity of the Islamic countries and its mission is to protect ‎Islam but it must be said that for the Shi’ah clergy, awaiting the Imam of Time means that they ‎are ready to respond ahead of events – that is to say, the seminary must also look ahead to the ‎needs and respond to the needs of mankind‏.‏‎”‎


Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Khorasani said that the religious scholars are the guardians of the ‎shari’ah, prophethood and imamate and said, “Today, the enemies are seeking to undermine ‎the greatness of the seminaries and break the respect of the religious leaders. For this reason, ‎we must all be careful. In addition to protecting the respect of the seminary and religious ‎leaders, we must not partake in the enemies movements‏.‏‎”‎
