The Message of His Highness Grand Ayatollah Saafi Golpyagani for the ninth international convention on His Holiness Imam Sajjad (peace be upon him) – Hormozgan – Moharram Al-Haram 1441 Hijri.
In the name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, All-merciful.
All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds. Mercy and peace be upon the greatest of all the prophets and the apostles, the beloved of the Lord of the worlds, Abil Qasim Mohammad and his pure progeny, especially the Remainder from Allah on the Earths – May Allah hasten his relief.

Indeed, everyone accepted the lofty position of His Holiness Imam Ali ibn Al-Husain (peace be upon him), and there is definitely no one who would doubt the virtue and excellence of this honorable Imam.
