Hawzah News Agency (Qom, Iran) - In a meeting with a group of Lebanese university students that was held at Ayatollah Alavi Gorgani's office in Qom, his Eminence remarked, "God has granted many blessings to human beings, one of which is the opportunity of life and the gift of youth."
The Shia cleric stated, "Many of the prominent Muslim scholars attained great spiritual perfection in their youth and had been able to pursue high moral levels."
Ayatollah Alavi Gorgani said, "Piety and love for Ahl al_Bayt (as) and accepting Wilayah of Ahl al_Bayt (as) is the path to salvation for human beings, and everything other than that, is invalid and void."
His Eminence explained, "One should prove his or her love for Ahl al_Bayt (as) in action, otherwise expressing verbal love for Ahl al-Bayt (as) is not enough."
Ayatollah Alavi Gorgani stressed, "If one mixes heartfelt love and practical love, he/she will definitely achieve salvation."
