A group of Shia religious activists from Sweden met with the Grand Shia Jurist Ayatollah Shirazi in holy Qom, on July 31, 2019.
In this meeting, the Grand Jurist stated:
“Success depends on hope and spirits, not on equipment and facilities. If a person keeps his hopes, despite not having any facilities, he will be successful. On the other hand, without hope and the spirit, there are no equipment and facilities that can ensure success. Almighty God has decided to test people by their adherence to the cause of Imam Hussain peace be upon him, which is fraught with hardships and difficulties.”
The Grand Jurist further hinted:
“Imam Hussain tests all of us. Therefore, my recommendation to you is to be patient with friends more than with enemies. Care about the youths and invite them to join the cause of Imam Hussain peace be upon him, and finally, don’t let the hardships in this way take the better of you.” At the end, the Grand Jurist stated: “I pray to God to keep you among the servants of Imam Hussain (PBUH), and know that this is a great honor.”
