The secretary-general of the World Forum for the Approximation of Islamic Schools of Thought ‎stressed that Western teachings don’t answer the needs of society and warned that the West to ‎attempting to replace Islamic culture with its culture in Iranian society. ‎

RNA – Speaking at a mourning ceremony on Tasu’a, the ninth night of Muharram, at Shohada ‎Husayniyah in Qom, Ayatollah Mohsen Araki, the secretary-general of the World Forum for the ‎Approximation of Islamic Schools of Thought, said that throughout history, many people have ‎been influenced by scholars and elders and said, “In the past, scholars had a greater presence ‎in the market and influenced people directly.”‎
‎ ‎
The member of the Assembly of Experts added, “Through these encounters many merchants ‎were attracted to the scholars and eventually became great students of these great ‎personalities. The scholars and the clergy have a special role to play in the culture of society ‎and must lead people to religion through their behaviour.”‎

He said that the West is seeking to replace all other cultures, especially Islamic and religious ‎ones, with their culture and emphasized, “We must be careful that this ominous goal isn’t ‎achieved and there is no other culture which is as rich as religious and Islamic culture.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Araki emphasized the need for a sociological analysis of the behaviours of the ‎presidents of the United States and said, “By analyzing these behaviours, we can discern the ‎difference between world leaders in order to have a correct view of the cultural differences of ‎societies.”‎

The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom described the Husayni school of ‎thought “a human and society-building school” and said, “The religious teachings of Imam al-‎Husayn have crossed all boundaries and the Master of the Martyrs [Imam al-Husayn] had been ‎training individuals like Ali al-Akbar and Qasim for many years and the army of Imam al-Husayn ‎was comprised of youth.”‎
‎ ‎
He said that sociologists must research the phenomenon of Husayni love in the world, ‎especially the Arba’in pilgrimage and noted, “Ashura and Arba’in are an international and ‎influential social phenomenon. Why do scholars who are constantly commenting on different ‎issues and conditions have nothing to say in this regard?” ‎

Ayatollah Araki added, “It seems that some of the lack of research is deliberate because by ‎researching these fields, the huge capacity of the Husayni school is identified and it’s obvious ‎that Western teachings don’t answer the needs of society and Alawi and Husayni culture ‎dominates over them.”‎

His Eminence stressed, “Other religions and denominations wonder about the power of the ‎Husayni school and the Shi’ah clergy and how this school has the power to create social ‎mobilization. The personalities of other religions have acknowledged that they don’t have the ‎power to propagate to young people.”‎
‎ ‎
He added, “Today, with the divine grace and due to the Husayni school, more and more ‎Western youth from Europe and the United States participate in the Arba’in pilgrimage, which is ‎a sign of the divine power of the school of Imam al-Husayn that some don’t like to proceed.”‎
