SHAFAQNA – The following is a statement published by the Muslim Congress.
Bismillahi Qasimil Jabbareen
Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajeoon
My condolences to the Imam of our time and the leader of the Muslim Ummah and to all followers of AhlulBayt on the shahadat of Ayatullah Sheikh an-Nimr (ra).
This is another death like Shaheed Baqir Al-Sadr (ra). This is another day of mourning, another day of Ashurah. Another soldier of Imam has lost his life fighting in the way of Allah. The martyrdom of Sheikh an-Nimr (ra) is the beginning of the end of Ale Saud. His only crime was raising his voice for the oppressed people of Saudi Arabia. The people of Saudi Arabia have long been living under this cruel regime. The regime will pay a heavy price for this crime against humanity. God only gives respite to the oppressor to commit more crimes before their final end. Those who are silent or, are in any way, helping this regime have aided in this crime. By using such tactics, they will not succeed in dividing Shias and Sunnis and fulfill the dream of the enemies of Islam.
“We are mourners of Karbala. Death is no stranger to us.”
The message of Shaheed was to never be silent in the face of oppression. We need to use the light of this shahadat to break the darkness of this world. Our job is to keep his mission alive until the darkness can be lifted. We should raise our voices in all circumstances. We should not forget to fulfill our duty. Our job is to fulfill our obligations, not to look for the outcome in the matter of religious duties. Death cannot bring fear to our hearts. We are the mourners of Karbala. Death is no stranger to us.
The blood of a martyr is the life blood of a nation. His blood will not got to waste. He will live forever in the heart of the followers of the AhlulBayt and lovers of justice. Undoubtedly, Sheikh Nimr’s murder is a crime whose extensive consequences will come after Ale Saud.
