Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, indicated that the holy Quran and adherence to it is a cure from arrogance, narcissism, psychological problems, anger towards the people and the country and hatred of people, adding that it also cures the states of weakness, debacle, psychological defeat, hesitation, terror and fear. His eminence explained that the holy Quran gives humans strength, removes their weakness and grants them bravery and intrepidity in the face of enemies, elaborating that the Quran is a cure from adversities, enmities, offenses, wars, destruction and killing, as it calls for mercy and coexistence between people. His eminence also insisted that the Book of Allah and adherence to it is a remedy to the love of the earthly life and tendency to lusts.
This came during the tenth Ramadan night held at his eminence’s office in Baghdad on Tuesday, 30/6/2015.
Furthermore, Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim stated that there are big convergences between physical illnesses on one hand and moral and spiritual illnesses on the other hand. He explained in fact that both kinds of illnesses are harmful to humans and prevention in both is better than treatment, clarifying that physical and moral illnesses are contagious and need to be diagnosed for proper treatment. His eminence pointed out that there are physical and moral illnesses related to the genetic factor and that some of these illnesses may reach a level where treatment can’t do anything. He finally gave an example of criminals who kill innocent souls without any moral or human deterrent and take pleasure in torturing people and shedding blood.
