Mosques' Imams Urged to Keep Up-to-date

Mosques' Imams Urged to Keep Up-to-date

-- In the run-up to Muharram, the first month in the Islamic calendar which marks the martyrdom of Imam Hossein (AS) and his companions, all mosques' Imams were called on to transfer up-to-date knowledge to their audience.

"Many hadiths have related about merits of mosque-going one of which is to gain up-to-date knowledge," said leading Iranian cleric Hojat-ol-Islam Mohsen Qaraati, who heads the State Headquarters of Establishing Islamic Prayers .

 

He made the remark at a ceremony held in Tehran yesterday to honor mosques' Imams.

 

Qaraati called on mosques' Imams to be armed with the most recent developments and impart up-to-date knowledge to worshipers who rush to fill mosques during the month of Muharram to mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hossein (AS), the third Imam- leader in the Shia doctrine- who was unjustly killed in a disproportionate battle with the troops of Yazid in an area in Iraq, known today as Kerbela, in the seventh century.

 

He also asked the Imams to have pure intentions and conduct their mission for the sake of God and bear in mind that the outcomes of their efforts are decided by Him.

 

Qaraati touched on the key role of Muslim preachers saying that Imams play an important role in drawing the younger generations to mosques. "Imams should deliver short sermons and explain concepts in a way that all can digest, using examples to help the audience understand them.
