RNA – During his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large crowd of believers at the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Husayn in the Iraqi city of Karbala, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Ahmad al-Safi emphasized on the observance of ethical issues and said, “We must ring the alarm of the collapse of some moral systems. Surprisingly, some feel embarrassed to deal with it and nobody is thinking of such issues.”
The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani in Karbala added, “We are talking about modesty and the factors and the problems of its disappearance. The observance of modesty leads to decency, nobility and confrontation with shamelessness. Modesty makes it such that people don’t exceed the limits of politeness and one is warned whenever someone approaches immorality.”
Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi added, “Young people, both men and women, have put modesty aside under the pretext of freedom, while life without modesty will turn society into jungle. With immodesty, society is obliterated and the young people are not ashamed of what they are doing. Girls are the symbol of modesty and society must provide the context of moral observance and not allow any violation of it.”
The custodian of the Holy Shrine of Hadhrat Abbas explained that some people are pushing the country toward a state of endless turbulence and said, “Freedom has certain rules and limits. It must protect society from moral collapse.”
He stated, “This society has scholars, intellectuals, youth and women who have defended the country with courageousness and such people are a source of dignity and honour which must be introduced as a model.”
Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi emphasized that they must be careful not to deceive us in the name of freedom and to mislead society.
