Referring to the importance of social relations, HIWM Jalali added that: the collective relationship with the Imam of the time is also important and this importance is tied to the gathering of people, which means that the society itself should also have a social relationship with the Imam of the time.
In the English section, HIWM Afzal Mirali stated about the life and character of Imam Muhammad Baqir (AS) that: Imamate of Imam Muhammad Baqir (AS) became familiar with science because the internal problems of the Marwanites provided an opportunity for Imam Baqir (AS) to spread knowledge among the Shiites that the enemy became the cause of good. He added: Shiites have grown and gained a lot of knowledge because of the scientific efforts of Imam Baqir (AS) and this Imam spread love for Ahl al-Bayt (PBUT) and also knowledge among Shiites.
HIWM Jafari, the third speaker of the ceremony in the Farsi section, spoke about the era before the reappearance of Imam of the time (AS). He said: According to a narration from Imam Muhammad Baqir (AS) before his reappearance, a group from the East rose up to demand their right until the reappearance of Imam maintains that their dead are considered as martyrs in the war.
