RNA – Speaking at an educational-cultural conference at the Ma’soumiyeh Institute of Higher Education, a women’s seminary in Qom, Hujjat al-Islam Abdolkarim Bahjatpour stated that seminarians are the soldiers of the Imam of Time [Imam al-Mahdi] and referred to the role of women in the Islamic Seminaries of Iran and stated, “Seminaries dedicated to women are young compared to the men’s seminaries which have existed for the past eleven centuries. Women’s seminaries have only been officially active for 22 years but fortunately, they have found their place and now there close to 500 seminary schools for women across the whole country.”
The director of the Women’s Islamic Seminaries of Iran said, “The use of the capacities of women in various fields, including the religious education of families and society, are among the blessings of the Islamic Revolution and we must be grateful for this great blessing.”
He noted, “Today, the enemies are focused on women and the youth in order to defeat Islamic Iran and this base of Islamic resistance because if women didn’t have a transcendental position and weren’t ready for sacrifice, the Islamic Revolution would be in decline and would become extinct.”
Hujjat al-Islam Bahjatpour said, “The role that the women’s seminaries have today must be seen and recognized and the existing problems must be resolved together so that Islam and the Islamic Revolution aren’t harmed. The Islamic Revolution is a great opportunity and has great capacities and even some prophets didn’t succeed in achieving such a revolution and thus, we must appreciate this great opportunity and blessing.”
The commentator on the Holy Quran said, “We were able to isolate the United States and make the world laugh at the President of the United States and even his allies have deserted this country. Because our rationality is Islamic rationality and it dominates, the world accepts the rationality of the Islamic Republic and we believe that we all have a responsibility towards the world and we don’t tolerate tyranny and oppression.”
He said that the enemies didn’t learn from the sanctions on Iran’s military because at a time when the military of the country was sanctioned, it was able to turn this threat into an opportunity and the Islamic Revolution became very powerful from a military perspective and without doubt, the economic sanctions will become a great opportunity and the enemies will once again be defeated.
Hujjat al-Islam Bahjatpour stated, “There’s no doubt that there are weaknesses in the country and one doesn’t deny these weaknesses but we must try to resolve the problems and resist against the pressure of the enemies and undoubtedly the Iranian people are the continuation of the path of the martyrs.”
