Head of President office said: “Razavi doctrine has set the foundations of his work on the promotion of wisdom and today’s pioneers of dialogue among religions must be the Muslims and Ahl al-Bayt doctrine.”
“At the time we live, they have shown irrational, violent and negative image of Islam and the best way to deal with this is promoting the Razavi doctrine and culture” said Mohammad Nahavandian in the opening ceremony of Razavi Culture Devotees World Assembly which was held with the participation of Islamic world scholars in the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization, according to the News and Information Department of Imam Reza (A.S.) International Foundation.
“The current situation of the world only introduces the violent and extremist groups of Islam. In our time and in this global community which has turned into a global village with the development of communication services, the best way is promoting Razavi culture if someone really wants to do a service for the realization of Islam in the international community, where the number of Muslims is over one billion, but still they are a minority. In this large gathering for the promotion of Islam, Razavi culture must be expanded” he added.
“If the majority of people know about the real Islam, they will take the real path of Islam. Razavi doctrine has set the foundation of its work on promoting wisdom. The wisdom which is the choosing independent and informed mind” said Nahavandian, emphasizing on the fact that in the Islamic societies there is an ongoing plot to make Islam appear an imposing doctrine.
Referring to one hadith from Imam Reza (A.S.), he said: “They asked Imam what was the proof and reason for people? Imam didn’t mention obedience but being considerate of the problems of the time. Thus Imam considers proof as wisdom. So we must establish thought and speech based on wisdom and intellect.”
Pointing to the debates which Imam Reza (A.S.) had with different religions, the head of President Office explained: “Regardless of all insults, Imam brought reason on the superiority of his approach and attitude.”
“The today pioneers of dialogue among religions must be Muslims and the believers in Ahl al-Bayt doctrine. Those who believe in the legitimacy of their viewpoint and doctrine must be pioneers of dialogue among different religions and doctrines” he noted.
“The human society must see the tolerance, peace and ingenuity from the follower of Ahlul-Bayt. The coexistence is not to surrender before another but is finding the matching point. In this doctrine, leniency with people is emphasized; we live in a society where the relations between Muslims and people from other religions increase regularly. One cannot even deny working and collaborating with other people inside the society. Imam Reza (A.S.) has said: ‘the rational way determines a practical doctrine which is being kind with people” he added.
