Representative of Khorasan Razavi in the Assembly of ‎Experts:‎
Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Khorasani considered it necessary to help the needy in the conditions ‎they face due to the spread of the Coronavirus by following Imam al-Ridha.‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Ahmad ‎Hoseyni-Khorasani offered his congratulations on the birth anniversary of the eighth Shi’ah ‎imam, Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha, and referred to the dimensions of the personality of the Imam ‎and said, “In terms of personality, Imam al-Ridha was a man chosen by God and was the ‎authority of the Lord and the possessor of God-given love and infallibility, and as a result, ‎the divine authority is considered upon all of humankind and in all dimensions.”‎

The professor of ethics of in the Islamic Seminaries added, “God created such a pure man to ‎be a model for the happy and comprehensive life of human beings in all historical periods‏ ‏and therefore, we must try to be moral through his morals, to be disciplined through his ‎behaviour and follow his culture.”‎

He further referred to the titles of Imam al-Ridha and added, “Imam al-Ridha has many titles, ‎among which being ‘rauf’ (compassionate) is the most famous. ‘Rauf’ is one of the attributes ‎of God and in the Holy Quran, the Holy Prophet has been praised by God for this attribute.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Khorasani continued, "Compassion and love mean taking care of ‎God’s servants, assisting the poor and the disabled, guiding the misguided and helping the ‎fallen. When Imam al-Ridha was forced to stay in Marw for three years, he distributed all of ‎his assets among the needy in the Marw region several times.”‎

The representative of the people of Khorasan Razavi province in the Assembly of ‎Experts‎ ‎stated that if we consider ourselves to be devoted to Imam al-Ridha and it is appropriate to ‎follow his moral method and added, “In these difficult living conditions, which have been ‎created by cowardly and inhumane sanctions, as well as the spread of the Coronavirus in the ‎country, and the fact that some have become unemployed and have difficulty managing ‎their lives, it’s necessary for everyone to be as moral as possible to follow Imam al-Ridha.”‎

He narrated a narration from Imam al-Ridha about paying the worker’s salary before the ‎sweat on his forehead dries up and said, “This ethic of Imam al-Ridha today must become a ‎procedure for employers, industry owners, as well as managers and agents and the delaying ‎of the payment of wages without a rational excuse, is contrary to the ethics of Imam al-‎Ridha.” ‎

In conclusion, Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyni-Khorasani emphasized, “Imam al-Ridha has dedicated ‎his entire life to spreading Islamic sciences and states that if Shi’ahs and our followers learn ‎our sciences properly and teach others, people will accept our culture based on their nature. ‎Therefore, the seminaries, the universities and the national media are obliged to try to ‎spread the teachings of Imam al-Ridha and in the meantime, the duty of the national media ‎is much more important, and it must use the facilities at its disposal to promote these ‎teachings.”‎
