The Department for Youth and Universities, under the Office of the His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad Saeed Al-Hakim, organized a forum for the first batch of Iraqi university students and educational institutions, which took place at Madrasah Ayatollah Sayyid Mohsin al-Hakim in the holy city of Najaf, during a summer holiday course. In this forum, the scholar Sayyid Tu’mah al-Jabiri gave a lecture entitled, ‘The Importance of the Age of Youth’.
The Sayyid began his talk by welcoming those attending and praised their participation in such an event in the vicinity of the grave of Imam Ali (peace be upon him). He spoke of the virtues of being on such sacred grounds, and of the need to capitalize on this time near the Imam (peace be upon him), and to feel the spiritual change within us.
He emphasized the importance of the age of youth in the life of a human, as that time in the life of a person which will define the success during his life journey, or lack thereof. During this important part of one’s life, it is necessary to have cognizance and education. Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said, “You, the youth of the community, will soon be the elders of the community.” They have this responsibility and they are the future leaders of Iraq.
