Hawzah News Agency (Najaf, Iraq) – Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Saeed al-Hakim received a group of university students from Imam al-Kadhim University in Baghdad on Sunday, December 31.
During the meeting, the Shia source of emulation advised youth to stay vigilant and commit themselves to their religion, beliefs and genuine Islamic values; "You must reinforce your religious beliefs day by day in order to strengthen them within Shia community so that enemies' conspiracies and present world conditions cannot undermine your beliefs."

They must also try their best to preserve their religious beliefs as well as others' so that they won't be deceived by the enemy and their corrupt thoughts."
