Tuesday, January 31, 2017

According to the report of the Tabnak News Agency – Qom branch, Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimeen Seyyid Ali Mousavi Ardebili, the son of Grand Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili attended the office of Ayatollah Shobeiri Zanjani and met and converse with this marja`.

Ayatollah Shobeiri Zanajin condoled once again the demise of Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili to his son and stated: The shadow of his Eminence, the Imam of Era (may Allah hasten his reappearance) is over our heads.

Glorifying the spiritual position of the late Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili, this marja` mentioned: This world is not a place for permanent stay. Even prophets left this world; but it is important to leave this world with full hand.

He added: A man should live in society in such a way that when he left the world, those who know him say about him: “We have seen nothing from him but good”. We should have strong relations with divine saints in this world. Thanks God, Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili had all of these conditions and all those who knew him were testified his greatness.

Ayatollah Shobeiri Zanjani stated: A divine blessing for a clergyman is that he tightens his relation with Allah, the Almighty. Scientific and social position is important in itself, but these very spiritual relations and servicing to the people are useful for human being.

Asking for the success of the offspring of Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili, he added: It is a point and blessing that another clergyman will educate and grew in the house of a clergyman; otherwise whatever greatness of his house is useless finally. I hope you are successful as much as possible. As he was satisfied with you, it is a great success and blessing.

Referring to his deep-rooted and long friendship with the late Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili, Ayatollah Shobeiri Zanjani mentioned: He said that he entered Qom in the same year which the late Ayatollah Borojerdi entered Qom. He said when I came; I saw a young seyyid who was studying in the library. I asked him: Who was that seyyid. He replied: He was Ayatollah Mousavi Ardebili. We were interested in him when he came to Qom from the beginning; it means we are friend with each other for more than 70 years.
