The Secretary-General of the holy shrine of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him); Sheikh Abd Al-Mahdi Al-Karbalai explained in his speech the following: "There is no shadow of doubt that science, knowledge and education are very important in the current time, ane they are two bases upon which the person can build his personality, happiness and the walk of the society towards the perfect character that suits the best of God's creation. And these three projects are special to women (The Institute of Lady Zaynab (peace be upon her) for the women Tableegh, Secondary school Rayhana Al-Warith for Girls and the Lady Zaynab School for women Hawza studies.) As woman has an essential, serious and important role for the construction of the individual, the family and the society, and we have to give her the interest worthy of her role and function. The first step is educating and cultivating her in accordance to the assigned roles to her, which depends first on school, second on the educational and moral discipline and third on the awareness and the perception of the nature of her role in the society, which is divided between the family and building its structure in accordance with rules set by Islam and showed its role outside the family environment fitting its special character as a woman, teacher, educator and conveying the rules and human knowledge. So there must be a right awareness and understanding to the nature of these roles without letting her wander amid absurdity and loss."
