Press Shia – “A society which learned from Ashura and has targeted its characteristics as its government’s objective, will never go under the burden of humiliation,” the custodian of the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Ridha said.
Press Shia Agency – Speaking during one of a series of Muharram lectures held by the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Ridha after evening and night prayers in the portico of Imam Khomeini, Hujjat al-Islam Ebrahim Raeisi gave a lecture on the philosophy of the Ashura uprising.
“What is put forward for mourners and devotees of Imam al-Husayn in this great tragedy, is gaining knowledge about the Master of the Martyrs and his uprising. Because if there is admiration for this uprising, it must be coupled with analysis and whenever the analysis is more detailed and comprehensive, praising Imam al-Husayn will be greater and deeper,” he stated, recounting gaining knowledge about Imam al-Husayn as a necessary characteristic for the mourners.
According to Hujjat al-Islam Raeisi, for the acquisition of knowledge on the philosophy of Ashura, sermons and sayings of Imam al-Husayn should be noted, because his words are the best source for understanding this illuminating movement.
