From the other People View Point
Prof. Christos sp. Voulgaris – University of Athens:
"… In all of my life, nobody influenced me like Allameh Jafari. In the ancient city of Athens, instead of choosing names for streets, they used to put pillars on every street corner, and put three Hermes – the god of communications – on each pillar as a guide to people. From then on, outstanding figures who guided people to the right path were called Hermes. They were constantly ding figures who guided people to the right path were called hermes.llars on every street cornered. s speedbusy studying, researching, and using their intelligence and wisdom to serve humanity, guiding man like shining stars. One of these rare figures is Allameh Mohammad Taghi Jafari, who was not only the pride of Iran, but the whole world. I had the chance to meet him twice. Once in Tehran, and once in Athens, when he was delivering a speech at the Institute of Friendship between Iran and Greece. These meetings gave me the opportunity to get to know his deep, vast thoughts.
Facing someone like Allameh Jafari, you feel like you are facing a man of God, a man who, due to his intelligence, reason and lifestyle, has been able to get near to, and be inspired by God. Nobody has had a deeper influence on me than he did."
"All in all, we must say that the likes of Allameh Jafari are extremely rare. He was a prophet-like leader. Despite his religious tendencies, he cried out to the whole wild world today that they have fallen astray of humanitarian ways and religious ways; brotherhood, compassion and developing true human nature has been forgotten. Allameh Jafari never condemned anyone. He was a teacher, not a judge. Once, I asked his opinion about Western societies. The question was unexpected to him, but he replied that though Western man has tried to become superhuman, but the only result he got was becoming non-human, for he deviated from God, and insists on his own logic and abilities. Allameh Jafari had succeeded in combining faith in God with human logic. May his soul rest in peace."
Prof. Hisae Nakanishi, lecturer at Nagoya University:
"There are countless aspects to Allameh Jafari's greatness. Most of all, however, I may point out the vast range of his knowledge of Islamic civilizations as well as other civilizations, and his profound insight which has led to such compassionate humanitarian works concerning man today and in the future. When I met him, I could fully feel that it was his warmth of heart and mind and great nature had made him care so much about creating a world of peace and mutual coexistence, and leave us such a valuable legacy.
… the world has undergone dramatic changes, and is heading for quite dangerous outcomes. Significant values and concepts like human dignity, greatness and heritage have been ignored, even denied. If they are to be rejuvenated, all of Allameh Jafari's ideas and works should be taken into consideration; his philosophy must be re-interpreted if a new, safer world is to be made."
