The head of the Ashura International Foundation said, “The late Hojat al-Islam Sayed Moghtada Hosseini Abhari had very good relations with non-Muslims in Switzerland and other countries and tried to acquaint them with the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.). He defended the sanctity of the Imamate, Islam and the Quran.”

Hawzah News Agency – On Saturday, March 5, 2022, on the first anniversary of Hojat al-Islam Sayed Moghtada Hosseini Abhari, the specialized conference “The situation of Shia in the West” was held.

In this conference, while offering condolences on the first anniversary of the educated scholar and the great professor Hojat al-Islam Hosseini, Ayatollah Mohammad Hassan Akhtari, the chairman of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly said, “It was a very difficult and worrying year when the evil Covid virus mourned many families and took away many of our intellectuals. One of the loved ones we lost this year was the great scholar, Hojat al-Islam Hosseini.”

“As a clergy and servant of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly and the International Ashura Foundation, I have had the honor of meeting and cooperating with him for many years. His demise was very painful and sad for us, the scientific community, seminaries, scholars, Sources of Emulation, as well as for his acquaintances and enthusiasts. I feel sad by the loss of this dear brother. His demise is a great loss for everyone,” he added.

“Sayed Moghtada considered it his honor to love Imam Hussain (a.s.) and to express virtues of the Imam and the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.). The surname of Sayed Moghtada was Husseini, and I hope that he will benefit from the light of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and be reunited with this Imam and his companions,” said the head of the International Ashura Foundation, offering congratulations on the days of Sha’ban month and the birthday of Imam Hussain (a.s.).

"We were friends for over 20 years. He came to the Iranian embassy in Syria with the late Sayed Saleh Zurriasatain, a devoted Mujahed in the war against criminal Saddam during the eight-year war imposed on Iran, and one of the defenders of the Velayat in Syria. This was my first acquaintance with Mr. Hosseini,” he said, referring to the acquaintance with the late Hosseini, his sincerity and interest in promoting Islam, propagating the religion, and spreading the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.).

“The late Hosseini was a preacher and a mujahed in the way of God, and with his speeches and statements he tried to guide the believers and deepen their love for the AhlulBayt (a.s.),” the chairman of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly continued, “The nobleman not only preached Islam in Iran and his homeland, but also after the victory of the Islamic Revolution raised the banner of propagating Islam in other countries, including Germany and Switzerland.”

“Hojat al-Islam Hosseini started his propagation in Lugano, Switzerland, and gathered the followers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) and Muslims around him and established the Islamic Center of Imam Ali (a.s.). After 20 years, this center has been operating as a base for guidance and propagation. The Islamic Center of Imam Ali (a.s.) is like a “good tree” (a Quranic term) and a relic of Hojat al-Islam Hosseini,” Ayatollah Akhtari added.

“I hope that with the follow-up of the friends of the deceased and the honarable head of Imam Ali (a.s.) Center, Dr. Hosseini, this “remnant of righteous” will remain and be able to increase and disseminate the knowledge of the AhlulBayt (a.s.), moral and religious education to the youth, and also successfully spread the Islamic culture, etiquette and lifestyle among non-Muslims,” he said.

“The late Hojat al-Islam Sayed Moghtada Hosseini Abhari had very good relations with non-Muslims in Switzerland and other countries and tried to acquaint them with the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.). He defended the sanctity of the Imamate, Islam and the Quran,” the head of the Ashura International Foundation said.
