The Supreme Religious Authority, His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Sadiq al-Husseini Al-Shirazi, may Allah prolong his life, affirmed that our era is subject to a wide mobilization of moral and ideological corruption, recommending the preservation of youth.
His Eminence said this to a group of Kuwaitis at his honorable house in the holy city of Qom.
“Imam Ali, the Commander of the Faithful, peace be upon him, says, “The bitterness of the world is the sweetness of the Hereafter.” Bitterness hurts a person, like political and economic bitterness, debts and illness, and family problems. These all hurt a lot of people, and there is no man without bitterness in the world. However, this bitterness or hardship in our lives turns into sweetness in the Hereafter.”
The Grand Ayatollah Shirazi adds, “Preserve the youth, hold their hands and do not let them go astray, away from the path of the Ahlulbayt, peace be upon them, especially in this time which with great regret, we witness a wide mobilization in corruption, in morals and beliefs, by the West and the East.
