Ayatollah Hoseyni-Hamadani:‎
The Friday prayer leader of Karaj called Arba’in “the peak of the emergence of love and ‎devotion to the Ahl al-Bayt”‎ and said addressing cultural and positive activities during the ‎Arba’in is of particular importance‎.‎

RNA – A meeting of the Policy Board of the Organization For the Reconstruction of the Holy ‎Shrines of Iraq in Alborz ‎Province was held on June 18th at the Friday prayer leader’s office ‎in Karaj.‎

At the beginning of the meeting, Soleyman Shokri, the head of the Organization For the ‎Reconstruction of the Holy Shrines of Iraq in Alborz ‎Province, presented a report on the ‎ongoing projects, gifts and vows of the people of the province to help develop, expand, ‎construct and rebuild the holy shrines and establish mawkibs (mourning organizations) during ‎the Arba’in pilgrimage in Iraq. ‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad-Mahdi Hoseyni-Hamadani described the report presented as ‎‎“glade tidings of the performance of the province” and stated, “Our people have shown their ‎commitment to all aspects of human life since the arrival of Islam, and in particular, the ‎arrival of Shi’ism in Iran. Since the Islamic Revolution, which is derived from the movement ‎of Imam al-Husayn, until today, they have shown their devotion to the Ahl al-Bayt in all ‎respects and the deficiencies haven’t dissipated this devotion and the difficulty of livelihood ‎has prevented people from engaging in vows in any era.”‎
‎ ‎
The representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] in ‎Alborz province added, “The argument of resistance, which has emphasized by the Supreme ‎Leader of the Revolution these days, is based on devotion to the Ahl al-Bayt and the Ahl al-‎Bayt also protected the religion through resistance.”‎

He considered Arba’in as the peak of the emergence of love and devotion to the Ahl al-Bayt ‎and stated, “Addressing cultural and positive activities during the Arba’in is of particular ‎importance. As a strategic move, Arba’in is an opportunity to export revolutionary and ‎religious values and therefore, its importance must not be overlooked.”‎

Ayatollah Hoseyni-Hamadani emphasized that the building up of the people during the ‎Arba’in pilgrimage is enduring its difficulties‎ and said, “In order to serve the pilgrims, we must ‎not comfort them. The mawkibs on the route must not become fixed structures. It’s better ‎to construct the tents at the desired time and then take them down later.” ‎

Regarding the prioritization of the reconstruction of the holy shrines of the Infallibles, His ‎Eminence said, “The obligations that the province undertakes for the reconstruction and ‎development must first be compared to the shrines of the Infallible Imams and then to the ‎Imamzadehs.”‎

In conclusion, he said that in return for receiving funds for the reconstruction of the holy ‎shrines in the mosques, it’s necessary that such activities are done in an organized manner ‎and in coordination with the mosque administration and the prayer leader of the mosque and ‎must be carried out in accordance with the agreements made and communiqués.”‎
