The Islamic University of Najaf participates in the international conference of al-Arba’een Pilgrimage at the Iranian University of Ardabil

On Sunday, the twenty-fifth of September, 2021, was held in the Iranian city of Ardabil, the opening session of the first international conference, entitled: (Al-Arba’een Embodiments of Heavenly and Human Values). Over twenty universities and scientific institutions from Iran and abroad participated in this conference organized by Al-Mohaqiq Ardabili University.

In the opening session of the conference, Prof. Dr. Hadi Abdul-Nabi Al-Tamimi, Dean of the College of Islamic Sciences at the Islamic University of Najaf, presented a summary of his research in the conference via a closed-television-circuit. Dr. Al-Tamimi touched on the fact that walking to Imam Hussein, peace be upon him, was not an innovation invented by the Shiites, as some try to delude people into this. Rather, it is the Sunnah of the Imams of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon him) when they explained to their Shiites the amount of great reward that a walker to the grave of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) would receive. As it was reported by a reliable and authentic chain of narrators on the authority of Imam al-Sadiq (peace be upon him).

Al-Tamimi added that Al- Arba’een proved to the whole world the truth of the authentic Muhammadan Islam, which calls for intimacy, peace and love. In this march, where different races and sects walk together as one human mass, without recording a single incident of dispute, crime, or assault, you can see its practical applications. Unlike blind terrorism, which recorded killings, slaughters, and destruction in the name of Islam, Islam is innocent of it. It is an act that made clear to the world the truths of Islam, and it served to unite all Muslims irrespective of their nationalities, ethnicities, and sects, as Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) brought them together.

The tyrants throughout the ages and times have tried to prevent this march as well as other Husseini rituals. (HTH)
