His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid al-Hakeem called the students of the Seminary towards mastering knowledge through insight and deliberation, and to abstain from hastening to making judgements that could be far from the standards and principles set by the Quran and taught by the Infallibles (peace be upon them) for all the Muslims. He said this to the students of Al-Mustafa University of the holy city of Qum, Iran, of various nationalities.
He also advised them to bear the trials and many difficult circumstances that they face in studying and will face in preaching. They will face those people in their homelands who might not have understanding or they might implement no teaching of religion. Therefore, it is necessary to be fortified in being accurate and precise in the jurisprudential sciences and the religious edicts, far from confusion. One should takes these teachings with solid proof, and from their original and pristine sources, with wisdom and accuracy, so that they may be presented to others in a convincing and calm way.
His Eminence concluded his talk by praying to the Almighty that He accepts their Ziyarah and that He supports them in their missions in bearing the enormous responsibility of spreading the word of Islam.
