‘Ten Days of Dignity’ ‎is a good opportunity to promote the lifestyle and culture of the Ahl al-‎Bayt

Ayatollah Alavi-Gorgani issued a statement on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lady ‎Fatimah al-Ma’sumah ‎and the beginning of the Ten Days of Dignity and emphasized, “The ‎Ten Days of Dignity ‎is a good opportunity to promote the culture and culture of Ahl al-Bayt.” ‎
RNA – On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah and the ‎beginning of the Ten Days of Dignity, Grand Ayatollah Mohammad-Ali Alavi-Gorgani issued a ‎statement. ‎

Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah is the daughter of Imam Musa al-Kadhim and the sister of Imam ‎Ali al-Ridha. In 201 AH/816 CE, she traveled to Iran to visit her brother, Imam al-Rida (a), in ‎Tus (modern-day Mashhad). However, she passed away on the way due to an illness and ‎was buried in Qom.‎

The text of this message is as follows:‎

In His Name, the Most High‎

The honoured imamzadehs (children of the imams) are enlightened figures who shine on the ‎peak of our Islamic country and are a manifestation of the light of wilayah (guardianship). ‎Therefore, honouring these pure and luminous essences can be effective in the path of ‎human development and happiness.‎

One of these beloved imamzadehs who is found in Qom and has increased the luminosity of ‎this holy city is Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah. ‎

This dear lady had a lofty and eminent personality such that some of the Pure Imams ‎remember this lady with glory and reverence and even before her birth, but before the birth ‎of her father, some of the elders referred to her in their speeches and some of the Imams, ‎such as Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq, spoke of her high position.‎

Today, the birth anniversary of the daughter of Imam Musa ibn Ja’far al-Kadhim has been ‎named “Girl’s Day.” ‎

I offer my congratulations and salutations on the luminous birth anniversary of the Karimah ‎Ahl al-Bayt [The Benevolent Lady of the Ahl al-Bayt], Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah, and the ‎beginning of the Ten Days of Dignity‎ and Girl’s Day to all the Shi’ahs and the sincere ‎followers of the Pure Imams, especially to the most valued sisters, residents, neighbours ‎and pilgrims.‎
‎ ‎
Certainly, the girls of today, who are mothers of tomorrow, play a very important and ‎critical role in determining the cultural and intellectual destiny of society, which is based on ‎the myth of knowledge and chastity of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah and by imitating her in the ‎sublime spiritual, moral and scientific arenas, future generations are taking steps.‎
‎ ‎
This lady and this young girl, who was educated in the bosom of the Infallible Family of the ‎Prophet Muhammad, caused this city to achieve a lofty status in this dark period of the ‎tyrannical rule and became a base for the transfer of the light of knowledge and science of ‎the Ahl al-Bayt throughout the Islamic world from the East to the West by passing through ‎various cities and sowing the seeds of love, knowledge and guardianship along the route and ‎arriving in the holy city of Qom.‎
‎ ‎
The Ten Days of Dignity, which with the birth anniversary of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah ‎and ‎ends with the birth anniversary ‎of Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha, is a great opportunity to ‎promote the lifestyle and culture of the Ahl al-Bayt and model the character of these ‎magnates.‎
