Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam Mousavi-Largani stressed upon the need to equip seminarians with ‎both contemporary and religious sciences and the need for young seminarians to strive ‎harder to answer the needs and doubts of society.‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Naser ‎Mousavi-Largani, the representative of the people of Falavarjan in the Islamic Consultative ‎Assembly‎, spoke about the kinds of summer activities for seminarians during the summer ‎months and said, “The young students of the Islamic seminaries usually don’t have any ‎traditional summer holidays [such as those that high school and university students have].” ‎

The member of the Clerical Faction of the Islamic Consultative Assembly ‎‎continued, “In ‎Qom, due to the extreme summer heat, the seminaries close down for two months, but at ‎the same time, the young students participate in private lessons with various teachers and ‎learn various religious sciences as extra-credit classes.”‎
‎ ‎
Regarding the situation of the seminaries ‎in the various cities of the country during the ‎summer months, Hujjat al-Islam Mousavi-Largani‎ stated, “Most of the country’s seminaries ‎‎are active during the summer season and the young seminarians, who are mostly studying at ‎the lower levels in these seminaries, gain knowledge in the presence of their own teachers.” ‎

The member of the economic committee in the Islamic Consultative Assembly ‎noted, “For ‎example, in Tehran many seminaries are planning to hold classes during the summer this ‎year.”‎
‎ ‎
He stated, “I believe that the work of a young seminarian in the present day is very difficult. ‎Today, in addition to learning religious sciences, a young seminarian ‎must also learn ‎contemporary sciences in order to answer the questions and doubts existing in the modern ‎world in order to face various issues.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam Mousavi-Largani continued, “Today, young seminarians attend activities that ‎unfortunately aren’t visible. For example, the participation of the young seminarians in ‎various events in the country, including their relief efforts in regard to recent floods, was one ‎of the issues that must be addressed further.”‎
‎ ‎
In conclusion, His Eminence said, “The activities of a seminarian aren’t limited to the ‎atmosphere of the seminaries and they are continuously and actively present in various ‎activities such as jihadi and construction camps.”‎
