Representative of Grand Ayatollah Shirazi Hosts African Clerics in Holy Najaf

Over the past few days, a group of African clerics were hosted by Sheikh Mohammad Taqi Zakeri, one of the representatives of the Grand Ayatollah Shirazi in holy Najaf, Iraq. In this meeting, Sheikh Zakeri highlighted the important role of knowledge and learning, alongside spirituality and self-preservation. He further stressed on spreading the culture of AhlulBayt (peace be upon them) in Africa and other parts of the world. In this subject, he said: “You live in the wealthy lands of Africa, but you can’t benefit from this wealth. Colonialism doesn’t allow its colonies to see the light of knowledge and guidance. Therefore, you have a great role to save your nations from the shackles of ignorance.”
