Hujjat al-Islam Rafati-Na’ini‎ referred to the Islamic commandment of “enjoining the good and ‎forbidding the wrong” and ‎said, “Reviving the divine commandments is an indispensable duty ‎of an Islamic government.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Abbas Rafati-Na’ini, ‎the spokesman for the Centre for the Management of the ‎Islamic Seminaries of Iran, ‎referred to the Islamic commandment of “enjoining the good and forbidding the wrong,” and ‎said, “Those who engage in enjoining the good and forbidding the wrong‎ need full support ‎from the authorities.”‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Qom ‎added, “Islamic rule is a form of rule which ‎doesn’t neglect to fulfill the obligations of Islam, including prayer, fasting, enjoining the good ‎and forbidding the wrong‎ and other religious duties and it’s important for the government to ‎fulfill these obligations.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam Rafati-Na’ini‎ stressed that enjoining the good and forbidding the wrong‎ ‎in a ‎religious society is essential for all Muslims and said, “Enjoining the good and forbidding the ‎wrong is wajib al-ayni (personal obligation) for most Muslims and wajib al-‎kifa’i (collective ‎obligation) for some and it’s a indisputable and indispensable duty for an Islamic ‎government.” ‎

His Eminence noted that the Islamic seminaries have a duty to support the scholars who act ‎upon their religious duties in society and engage in enjoining the good and forbidding the ‎wrong in a comprehensive manner and to provide them with academic and spiritual support ‎ ‎and to defend their rights. ‎

Referring to the duty of the government to implement divine obligations in society, he ‎stated, “The government is obligated to provide comprehensive support for those who ‎enjoin the good and forbid the wrong in the Islamic society and also must providing the ‎platform for the establishment of this and other divine obligatory duties and the security and ‎judicial systems must specially enter into this arena.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam Rafati-Na’ini said, “If those who forbid the wrong aren’t supported by the ‎government, then the divine duty in the society comes to a standstill, and the Islamic society ‎diverges from this divine obligation. If government institutions don’t perform their duty to ‎support those who enjoin the good support, by God, they’re responsible.”‎
