SHAFAQNA- Alkafeel: The Supreme Religious Authority confirmed that he who was courageous and making sacrifices against the terrorist ISIL gangs is the one who embodied the principles of the Hussayni Renaissance. Stressing at the same time that Islam, the Islamic principles and the Hussayni Renaissance indicate that the true believer is not the one who only perform acts and rituals of worship and not only raise slogans,, but also whose position is to support Islam and the Hussayni Renaissance when there is a great danger.
These were the important points stated in the second sermon of Friday prayer of the 18th of Muharram 1440 AH, corresponding to September 28, 2018, held in the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and led by his eminence Sheikh Abd al-Mahdi al-Karbala’i. In which he stated:
“It’s crucial to know what we must learn from the reform revolution of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him),”
He shed light on the importance of the sense of responsibility, which is divided into types such as feeling responsible for cultural and social awareness.
He then said that although the academic sciences, such as Medicine, Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Sociology, Pedagogy, and Economics are important, but it is still inadequate to have the insight to cognize the required Hussayni position on the issues of life. And what a faithful Hussayni Muslim – in this day and age – needs to do to be an exemplar of a sophisticated Muslim is that he or she must be armed with the Islamic jurisprudential, cultural, educational, economic, social, and political knowledge.”
He signified the importance of gaining Islamic knowledge from the proper Islamic resources that the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) specified for Muslims, indicating that some people might think that some figures represent the proper Islamic resources; they follow them and take their knowledge from them, but they are not what they are thought of, and those following them will consequently be misguided.
The Sheikh also added, “Prophets and reformers such as Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) fought ignorance and spread knowledge—Muslims must take responsibilities toward their society, try to solve their problems, and never remain passive.”
“Speech was what the prophets and reformers were armed with to reform people and guide them righteously. The speech of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) has remained for eternity, because it represented the method of reforming people individually and as a whole,” he also added.
He warned of using ill-mannered speech with people, because that will lead to sedition, hatred, and conflict in society, confirming that Islam is not a set of religious observances, worshipping or mottos to reiterate, but it is a complete constitution of life—that’s what the revolution of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) teaches.
Al-Karbala’i concluded, saying that if people remain passive and don’t try to partake in reforming their society, especially when the situation becomes critical, they never represent the principles of the Hussayni revolution even if they worship and practice religious observances more.
May Allah bestow upon us the success. And, the latest of our prayers is; praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and Prayers and Allah’s Peace be upon Mohammad and his pure and immaculate Household.
