On the Death of the Beloved

أُعِيذُكُمَا بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّةِ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ ، وَهَامَّةٍ ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ عَيْنٍ لَامَّةٍ

Though we need to weep your loss,
You dwell in that safe place in our hearts
Where no storm or night or pain can reach you.

Scholar Inscribes Iranian Peace Message

Scholar Inscribes Iranian Peace Message

Iranian scholar Eliza Saeedi has created an inscription in the city of Tabriz which conveys the message of peace from Iran to the world.

Saeedi has donated the inscription to the central library of Tabriz where she works as a researcher in ancient Iranian studies.

The inscription aims to dispel the false impressions created by Western media about Iran being a supporter of war and terrorism.

“It took me five years to finish the inscription and invite all nations and ethnicities to peace and friendship,” said Saeedi.

“The inscription is the first pictorial charter of human rights, which shows Iranians were the first nation to have had a human rights charter and have always been against war and violence,” she added.

Saeedi also said that she would donate a copy of the same inscription to the United Nations museum.

Sayyiduna Salman narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and grant him peace) spoke to the Companions on the last day of Sha`ban. He informed them that they were about to enter a great and blessed month, a month in which there is a night better than a thousand nights. He mentioned some of the merits of the month of Ramadan. Then he said: “Do four things in abundance: two things with which you please your Lord, and two things which you cannot do without. As for the two things with which you please your Lord: your testification that…

Damascus, SANA-The state’s care for the orphans in Syria is increasing. This was illustrated by the First Lady’s visit to two orphan care centers in Damascus.

Mrs. Asmaa al-Assad on Thursday visited Dar al-Aman and St. Gregory Orthodox Society for the Elderly and Orphans, two orphan care centers in Damascus, touring the newly-established classes in Dar al-Aman.

Mrs. Al-Assad was briefed on the conditions of the orphans and the efforts to help them become proactive citizens.

“Caring for the orphans is an ethical and humanitarian obligation in the normal course of things. Much more so under these extraordinary circumstances,” Mrs. Al-Assad said.

Meanwhile in St. Gregory Orthodox Society, Mrs. al-Assad met the society’s children and conversed with them about their school, encouraging them to continue their studies as a means of self-fulfillment, thanking the superintendents for their diligent efforts.

She indicated that the last couple of years “witnessed more awareness and enthusiasm among citizens about the necessity of giving care to orphans,” adding that the state, private sector and civil society share a responsibility to provide necessary care for the orphans.
