After the meeting, Al-Aridi said, "The visit of His Eminence and this honorable house is our duty, to find out his opinion and benefit from his wisdom in reading and managing matters in everything related to our affairs as Druze, and in Lebanese and Islamic national affairs and our role in approaching these matters. Today I wanted to visit His Eminence in particular to renew the greetings, appreciation, with pride and thanks to His Eminence for the role he played over the past years, and for the troubles he endured and difficulties he faced, where he always appealed to wisdom, reason, logic, as well as a broad and large chest, and these are the characteristic of senior responsible men who take charge of people’s affairs and manage them.
He added, "During the previous years, His Eminence accompanied us in managing the affairs of the Druze monotheistic sect (Tawhid), and in national stations in which there were many challenges, and praise be to God that it was always dealt with wisely, and he left bright imprints with what he did, whether at the level of endowments and the great trust that was accomplished at the end, to form an accumulation over the years. Thankfully we are proud of what he accomplished during the previous years, and during the next few weeks he will leave this site fortified by the fixed values and positions. This is what distinguished His Eminence with all the brothers who participated in bearing this burden and responsibility alongside our political leadership represented by the national leader Walid Jumblat."
And he added, "We say thank you to His Eminence Sheikh Naeem Hasan, who will complete his role from another position, with what he gained from experience and presence. He shall form an umbrella from what was accomplished in previous years in order to be able to preserve this trust. We welcome Sheikh Sami Abi Al-Muna who is the son of this institution and the confessional council, as well as this great Arab Islamic national role. Praise be to God, he also has all the qualities, experience and knowledge, and represents this sect in the best way on the spiritual, religious and national levels among his brothers in the other Lebanese spiritual sects. For the good and unity of this honorable community and on the general level.” We congratulate Sheikh Sami once again and rely on the blessing of His Eminence Sheikh Naeem Hasan and the blessing of His Eminence Sheikh Sami. Blessings gather for the good and unity of this honorable community and at the general level.”
