Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim has stressed the importance of committing himself to carry out the obligations and the acts of adoration while abandoning what is prohibitive, explaining that such commissioning is honoring man to bear the responsibility and its requirement to act upon the Divine commandments while abandoning what is prohibitive and what is forbidden.
This came up when His Eminence sponsored the annual celebration for the group of schools of educational integration on the occasion of their students reaching the age of such commissioning. It took place at the Baghdad office of His Eminence on Monday, March 18, 2013.
His Eminence addressed a message to his sons, the students, inviting them to thank the blessing of commissioning by knowing the Divine injunctions and adhering to them. His Eminence urged the abandonment of blind imitation and obedience and the adopting of positive conventions which enable one to achieve reform and disseminate virtue in the society.
The head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI) urged the parents to look after raising and educating their children since childhood in addition to monitoring them and providing them with spiritual and moral nourishment, calling on the educational and upbringing at these schools to maintain their contacts with the families of their students in order to integrate the work between school and home. He stressed the importance of the scholastic curricula being rich in materials and sound educational lessons, in addition to working to create a status of positive and constructive completion among the students.
At the end of the celebration, presents were distributed to male and female students who participated in the celebration and who reached the age of being commissioned.
