Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam al-Karbala’i called for the strengthening of the youth from the “cultural ‎and moral” invasion amid the technological development witnessed by the world and warned ‎of the repercussions of the frustration, loss, despair and anxiety among the youth in this ‎regard.‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in the ‎‎‎‎‎Iraqi holy city of Karbala’s Holy Shrine of Imam al-Husayn, Hujjat al-Islam Abdul-Mahdi al-‎‎‎‎‎Karbala’i‎ ‎said that the most important contemporary dangers and challenges experienced by ‎the youth are the cultural, intellectual and moral invasion that has opened up to young ‎people in the midst of technological development.‎
‎ ‎
The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani in Karbala ‎noted, “Young people ‎with little experience, knowledge and sufficient maturity to appraise life in a precise and ‎complete manner may be tempted and deceived by some of the information and culture ‎obtained through the means of social media.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam al-Karbala’i referred to the repercussions of the state of frustration, loss, ‎despair and anxiety for young people, as well as physical and emotional destitution and ‎deprivation and said, “If a young man doesn’t find what satisfies these needs, it may lead ‎him to resort to deviant ways.”‎
‎ ‎
His Eminence stressed, “We reject the subordination of the youth in society, which is a ‎serious issue, especially in the fields of work because it will kill them in the ambition and ‎develop the capacity and deprive the community of their abilities and break their psyche and ‎abilities. We must consider how to recruit and pay attention to the abilities of the youth who ‎are at the pinnacle of their lives in order to serve the community and not deprive ourselves ‎of these abilities.”‎

He continued, “The understanding of children and the youth is that the study and success is ‎necessary but the rest of the principles of faith, social relations, morals, values and other ‎principles must be stopped and they must be given their right to life.”‎

In conclusion, Hujjat al-Islam al-Karbala’i ‎called on the official, social and family institutions ‎to “pay attention to the youth.”‎
