Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli‎:
Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli said, “As the breath of a lover of the Quran is the praise of God, the ‎breath of a Shi’ah Muslim ‎who loves ‎the Infallible Imams means the same‎.”‎

RNA – Speaking at a special cultural program in the Jame’ Courtyard of the Holy Shrine of ‎Imam al-Ridha in Mashhad, Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli, a prominent source of religious ‎emulation, said, “As the breath of a lover of the Quran is the praise of God, the breath of a ‎Shi’ah Muslim who loves ‎the Infallible Imams means the same.‎”‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Qom, Javadi-Amoli stated that the breath of a pilgrim ‎or a neighbour of the holy shrine is the same as the breath of a worshipper and added, ‎‎“During these days, we can sanctify our breaths by worshiping the Creator of the Universe or ‎visiting the shrines of the Infallible Imams.”‎

He continued with a quotation from Imam Ali’s Nahj al-Balaghah [Peak of Eloquence] on ‎types of worshipping, “Those who have accepted the servitude of God are of three types. ‎Some worship God because of the fear of Hell, so their weeping is cowardly, some for the ‎craving of paradise, and some out of love for God Almighty. These are friends of God and ‎they because they haven’t yet reached God.”‎

Elsewhere, Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli‎ said, “Sometimes it is just a sigh and sometimes a laugh. ‎Religion does not always teach us to weep; rather, it is the beginning of the path of ‎‎‘humbleness’ for man to heed. Imam al-Mahdi in the opening of Du’a al-Iftitah [The Opening ‎Supplication] teaches us to be ‘humble’ before God, in the sense that man can grow from an ‎admirer to the admired.”‎

He pointed out that the man who is in a position of humbleness says to God, “If I am bad, ‎why did you reprimand me? You are greater and stronger than me and All Merciful. ‎Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. So forgive me.” This rank, he concluded, requires ‎high level of understanding.‎
