Head of institute stresses need for comprehending real philosophy of Ashura

The head of Institute for compilation and publication of Imam Khomeini's works says that the uprising of Ahura by Imam Hossein (‘a), the grandson of the holy prophet of Islam, is calling towards following his footsteps in a perfect manner and in all arenas.

Addressing a gathering of personnel at the institute, Dr. Ali Komsari said that only shedding tears  in remembrance of Ashura has great reward but not ultimate objective of Ahura. The main goal has been following Imam Hossein’s footsteps and taking him as a perfect model would make great difference.

Explaining the real philosophy of Ashura, Komsari quoted famous saying by the late founder of Islamic Republic that "It is Muharram and Safar that has kept Islam alive." 

“Only the passion of Muharram and shedding tears for Imam Hossain is not the real reason for or survival, but the sympathy and following  conduct of Imam Hussain (‘a) kept our revolution alive,” Komsari noted.

The scholar further said the Karbala movement holds and includes a variety of divine- oriented and spiritual elements such as facing sufferings with patience and dignity. 

He said relating Ashura with the contemporary era and human has been a task of great significance which should be done in a perfect manner by preachers.

It is worth mentioning that Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic revived the message of Asura and its various perspective in context of Today's world.

Imam Khomeini also stressed that  Muharram is a month when justice rose up against inequity and righteousness rose up against wrong and it has proven that the right always defeats the wrong throughout history. (Sahifeh-ye-Imam, Vol 5, page 184) 

He also said in a famous message that the holy months of Muharram and Safar have kept Islam alive. 

The contemporary leader of the Muslim world used to advise preachers to promote genuine teachings of Islam and convey global progressive perspectives of Ashura during this period of great significance on the Islamic calendar.   

Imam Khomeini had strongly recommended all clerics and preachers to deliver such speeches at religious gatherings which can elevate the Islamic societies towards spiritual growth and grab the attentions of the youth towards the real message of Ashura.  

The late founder of the Islamic Republic stressed that  Imam Hossein (peace be upon him), the grandson of the holy prophet of Islam, rendered matchless sacrifices in Karabla to revive the divine teachings and rescue the Islamic societies from plunging into decline at a sensitive juncture of history. 

Imam Hossein (PBUH) has been introduced as the role model by the honorable prophet of Islam. It is widely reported in authentic Islamic resources that the holy prophet of Islam also said:  “Truly Hossein is the lamp for guidance and the ark for salvation.”
