Shias from Azerbaijan Meet Grand Ayatollah Shirazi in Holy Qom Iran

On Sunday, 17 November 2019, a group of Shia believers and activists from Baku, the Capital of Azerbaijan visited the House of Grand Shia Jurist Ayatollah Shirazi in holy Qom and met with his eminence in person. During this meeting, these Azerbaijani activists conveyed the respects and regards of their community to the Grand Jurist. Furthermore, his eminence appreciated this kindness and inquired about the current situation in Azerbaijan. In addition, the Grand Ayatollah made a few recommendations to the Shia in Azerbaijan, some of which are as follows: “Try to encourage the youths in your country to do away with luxuries in their weddings and don’t let Satan create discord among you. Second of all, remember this hadith from our master, the holy Prophet of Islam who insisted on avoiding rage and anger. And thirdly, I encourage all of the youths to study the knowledge of AhlulBayt (as) and guide others to this path.” Towards the end of the meeting, one of these Shia activists asked the Grand Jurist for an advice in their pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Imam Reza (as), and the reply by the Grand Ayatollah was: “Observe good manners and be nice to everyone.”
