The invitation No.2




The Second Call
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Imam Ali (peace be upon him) has said:

“Do not have your children follow your traditions, because they have been created once other than your days.” –Imam Ali (peace be upon him)
Our society has been exposed to the invasion of anti-religious and immoral cultures for many years, and feels the weight and pressure of such thoughts and opinions. The owners of foreign anti-religion cultures have gone all out, organizing their work in all ages among all social classes, and even younger children are not spared from this onslaught of propaganda. Despite all these problems and the massive onslaught, it is surprising that we see the world stage free from champions of religious and humanistic values who are involved with intellectual activity using the weapon of knowledge and piety and occasionally attacking the impiety camp, or they don’t have a strong presence. In this period, it is difficult to keep children at home and to control their minds as well. Yet when they finally left the house and went into the society, and when they became familiar with the mass media, they enter a new world where information is freely and quickly exchanged, and it’s impossible to have oversight of it seriously. After the revolution, the governments which have been forming occasionally issue declarations with the content of fighting against public corruption, stating what we will do at junctions and in the streets, we will deal with hijab like this and act against improperly dressing like that, but they do nothing special when it comes to action, and if they do, they don’t get results, and they usually produce negative results if there is any outcome. In fact doing as such is dealing with the effect, yet the cause needs to be eradicated. Will coercion, stress and intimidation get any results as long as the cause still exists and our children are not correctly acquainted with the religious education, or religious ethics have been frivolously spread among them, in a way that the innocent children of this land have been nurtured the opposite way and even became evasive about the name of religion and faith? The enemy during the Reza Shah dynasty and by means of him tried to forcibly take hijab off of women’s heads, but it had a little effect and there were people who didn’t come out of their house for several years in order to maintain their hijab, why? It’s because they didn’t manage to destroy the cause. Therefore in the next phase they adopted a cultural approach and gradually established new schoolsand closed Maktab-Khaneh-s [traditional schools of Iran]. In the new schools which have been established instead of Maktab-Khaneh, they educated children as they pleased and spread the western culture between them. Even after the revolution, we didn’t manage to do anything important and we couldn't educate this generation in their childhood, it wasn’t done, we didn’t and they didn’t… today when a child is educated at school, and as they reach puberty or older, they are far away from the religious culture. Now we want to force people to wear hijab by flogging them!!!If educated from childhood, our children will never be influenced by western culture. It appears that activities in elementary and middle schools are the first and last resort to spread the religious culture and defend beliefs, i.e. the very best place where the enemy has targeted, we have to start the work not only from these places, but we should also take nursery schools into consideration. Across the country, all respectable clergymen should be mobilized and go to schools one day a week during the academic year and teach children the beliefs and religion. Also summer vacation is the window of opportunity for gathering children, adolescents and the young in masjids, Husainiyeh-s and religious places, so that the minds of our innocent generation become more than the past, familiar with the religious teachings and they become armed when facing the onslaught of propaganda from the enemy. Obviously these measures will have significant effects, the major part of this work is on the shoulder of great people who work in cultural centers and schools, but others also should not sit back and everyone should step forward as far as possible, because this work will reach results only by public effort and general resolve. As said earlier in the previous call, we are ready to assist those who step in this direction.

May Allah’s blessings and mercy be upon you.
