The supreme religious authority stated in the second sermon of Friday prayer of the 13th of Sha'ban 1440 AH corresponding to April 19, 2019, which was held in the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and led by his eminence Sayed Ahmad al-Safi, important moral and educational points in relation to our reality, such as:

  • - The necessity of having the general fundamentals of proper social education.
  • - The education fundamentals are affected by the country’s culture.
  • - Such fundamentals that ensure a better life for the youth are sponsored by the government, families, or society.
  • - If people receive a good upbringing, they will enjoy fundamentals that enable them to deal with matters appropriately and be a helpful generation.
  • - It is important to instill self-confidence in people from childhood until youth, for people have potentials and talents they need to use to explore the secrets of life.
  • - Such people should not be disappointed due to failing to do a certain thing or by their environment.
  • - If this self-confidence is generalized, we will have a group of people who trust themselves, and the circle will expand until we have a society that trust itself and its capabilities.
  • - Thus we can have a solid ground for our future generations.
  • - Reinforcing ambition and motivation, as this means that the person would not be lazy, as he/she is motivated to reach the goal, which is important especially for the youth.
  • - Instilling self-confidence and motivation strengthen the patriotism, which is an innate characteristic of people.
  • - If a person is raised on patriotism, he/she will be keen to drive away any harm from their country and bring goodness to it.
  • - If a patriotic person occupies an administrative, political, economic, or social position, they will take care of their country and not need a lot of directives to do their job.
  • - A patriotic does not need advice to tell him how dangerous bribery is, for their love for their country prevents them from accepting a bribe before religion does.
  • - Seeking to build the country is one of the fundamentals of proper social education.
  • - Iraq has young people with great potential. And such young people have a great deal of inventions that benefit the country.
  • - Such type of social education indicates that people can still invent under harsh circumstances — these people should be taken care of and sponsored by the authorities concerned.
  • - In such days, five years ago, in this holy place, on the 14th Sha'ban, the blessed fatwa was issued by the supreme religious authority for the purpose of fighting the terrorist ISIL gangs.
  • - The real test appears when the country is exposed to similar problem we experienced previously.
  • - This experience is the pride of all those heroes who fought, and history will not forget them provided that you document it yourselves.
  • - They were a civilizational phenomenon that enjoyed courage, bravery, patriotism and dignity.
  • - They defended their country in the best way possible in the modern era, with the lack of means and resources within a kind of chaos, but nothing stopped them to rush like a galloping torrent to stop what is called ISIL.
  • - These young men who were raised in this land, should not be forgotten along with those who urged them from parents, fathers who educated well and mothers who fed them pure milk so they can support their homeland in this crisis. All thanks to them.
  • - We, people, government and organizations, have to never forget the blood that has been shed on this land to save its honor.
  • - We have to always strive to document their efforts, as when the supreme religious authority issued its fatwa, the concerned authorities have not been able to control the large numbers that answered the call on the spot.
  • - In this holy place at the shrine of the Master of martyrs (peace be upon him), we stand in appreciation and thank to them
  • - As described by the supreme religious authority: "Blessed are those who fought and blessed are those mothers who educated you. You are our pride and honor face to all other nations."
