A delegation from Mauritania visits Imam Hussain Holy Shrine

A delegation from Mauritania visited the Holy Shrine of Imam Hussain to perform the visitation ceremonies and learn about the projects of the Holy Shrine.

Muhammad Rashid, imam of Al-Siddiq Mosque and director of the Ahlulbayt Schools in Mauritania, said, “We are happy and proud to visit the holy city of Karbala and the Imam Hussain Holy Shrine. Praise be to God, this is our third visit, and from this holy land we invite all Muslims, male and female, all over the world to have the honor of visiting the holy city.”

Rashid added, "The sublime status of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) made this pure land that was quenched with his pure blood a destination for all the free people in the world, where we see the influx and crowd of pilgrims from all countries. As an imam and preacher, I pledge before the Almighty Allah, His honorable Messenger, and the Master of Martyrs (peace be upon them) that we remain on the path of the Imam (peace beupon him), and we will convey what we witnessed in Karbala of sacrifice and sincerity to the Mauritanian people.”

Hilala Hamadeh, Director of the Humanitarian and Cultural Values Foundation in Mauritania, said in a statement to the International Media Center, “Our cultural and humanitarian foundation has worked to present the virtues of the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them), and based on the saying of the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him), ‘People are of two kinds: either your brother in religion or your equal in creation’, as this is the starting point for peaceful societal coexistence called for by Islam and Muslims, and the Holy Quran abounds with many examples that urge the rejection of extremism, as true Islam is far from extremism and terrorism.”

She added, “The Imam Hussain Holy Shrine has many humanitarian, scientific, academic and service projects, which it presents to people with all sincerity and dedication, and this is a message to the world that the religious institution's work is not limited to providing religious consultations, but rather goes beyond that to be close to the people and provide its services to them.”
