The Center of Mosque Studies - In a meeting with a group of Iraqi Muslims and clerics from Baghdad's Khatam-al-Osiya seminary, senior Shia scholar Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Saeed Hakim emphasized reviving Imam Hussain's (as) teachings within the Islamic community and beyond.
He also urged Muslim believers to further elaborate on the lessons of Ashura and Imam Hussain's (as) uprising in the mourning ceremonies which are held to commemorate the martyrs of Karbala.
"Promoting Imam Hussain's (as) teachings and moral virtues serve as a great source of wisdom for people worldwide and it helps them become familiar with Ahl-ul-Bayt's doctrine and their moral principles."
The Shia source of emulation further asserted, "In order to introduce the world to Ahl-ul-Bayt's (as) valuable doctrine, the Muslim community must cooperate and have certain qualities which are necessary to show the world to genuine face of Islam.
"Qualities such as having good manners, showing respect, honesty, helping parents, patience, spirit of forgiveness and contemplation upon Allah almighty's creation of the universe. Such attributes attract the world to Islam and its teachings."
