Grand Ayatollah Hussein Vahid Khorasani, a senior Shia scholar, met with Hujjat al-Islam Mahmoud Khalilzadeh, Friday Prayer Imam and head of German Shia Parliament, in Qom on Sunday, May 14.
During the meeting, the senior scholar said, “Preserving the dignity of Muslims is a top priority, especially in Europe.”
Addressing the head of Shia Parliament in Germany, Ayatollah Vahid added, “Your promotional activities in Germany are truly worthwhile; the people who preserve their religious faiths in non-Muslim countries despite all the difficulties and challenges they go through are doing a very worthwhile job and their actions will be greatly rewarded by Allah almighty.”
“Invite Shia Muslims in Europe to recite Quran on a daily basis and advise them to dedicate it to Imam al-Asr (aj), in doing so they will be protected in this life and hereafter.” Grand Ayatollah Vahid concluded.
It is noteworthy that at the beginning of this meeting, Hujjat al-Islam Mahmoud Khalilzadeh presented a brief report on the status of Shia Muslims in Germany during which he said, “Serious efforts are being put into promoting Islam and preserving Shiism in Germany as a result of Shia Parliaments’ programs in the country.”
