In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Meeting with Grand Ayatollah Lotfollah Safi Gulpaygani
We recently had the honor of presenting our VR project to one of our respected scholars, Ayatollah Safi Gulpaygani. This allowed us to receive both valuable insight and spiritual guidance for the growth of our project.
During the meeting Nazer Hussain Mehrali discussed the challenges we are currently facing within our Muslim communities and as part of the Muslim Ummah worldwide.
The lack of innovative and engaging initiatives for our youth was also discussed. With recent technological advances, and the current global community we reside in, the youth have a very different and perhaps broader approach towards life. This immense gap between the elders of our community and youth must be bridged so that we can move forwards and excel in our religion. And ultimately prepare for the arrival of Imam Zaman (a.s).
Mr. Mehrali presented VR Karbala as one of the solutions to engage and educate the youth, to which Ayatollah Gulpaygani positively responded.
The Ayatollah gave his blessings and said: “Be sure that this opportunity is not given to everyone, it is only given to you (VR Karbala team). Every success you have had and will have is from higher up, from the Ahlulbayt (as) and Allah The Almighty.”
He continued to say: “May Imam Zaman (a.s) help you to do even more. It is very important to be engaged in this kind of service and to serve the youths, especially in this time. The more you do and the more you are involved in this work the more blessings there will be.”
With both his support and prayers and by the will of God, we will strive to work with more dedication and try to prepare the scene of Abbas ibn Ali (as) before next Muharram inshallah.
