After the completion of the international conference on Islamic
Awakening in Tehran, Iran, Leader of the Islamic Movement in Iran His
Eminence, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H), has visited African student
undergoing studies in the two holy cities of Iran, Qom and Mashad.
Addressing studies in Qom, Sheikh Zakzaky (H) condoled them over the
unfortunate martyrdom of Sayyidah Zahra (AS), daughter of holy Prophet
Muhammad (SAWA). He described the event as one of the saddest event in
the history of Islam.
He expressed satisfaction with the rate at which Muslims in Nigeria
are accepting and coming to terms with the school of Ahlul Bayt (AS),
and their true position in Islam through Islamic Movement. “This is a
special privilege Allah has bestowed on the Islamic Movement in
Nigeria”, he said.
Sheikh Zakzaky (H) then called on the students to be more dedicated in
their studies, as the Nigerian Muslims are in dire need of the kind of
knowledge they are engaged in. He added that, lack of seriousness on
the part of any student is a sabotage and betrayal of trust placed on
him or her by the Imam of the Age (AF).
He pointed out that the Nigerian Muslims need people like them, with
knowledge of Ahlul Bayt (AS) in their midst for guidance.
Sheikh Zakzaky (H) had earlier paid homage to the holy shrine of
Sayyidah Fatimah Ma’asumah, sister to the sixth Imam of the Prophet’s
During a similar visit to the tomb of the sixth Imam of Ahlul Bayt,
Imam Ridha (AS) in Mashad, Sheikh Zakzaky (H) met with the students at
Al-Mustafa University. He addressed them on the need to pursue their
education with full dedication and utmost perseverance.
