SHAFAQNA- Alkafeel: The Supreme Religious Authority stressed that the Ziyarat Arba’een should be preserved as it represents a state of close attachment to the Master of martyrs (peace be upon him), and the Iraqis are a blessed people who do not deserve to be ignored but to be honored as they are source of pride.

These were the important points stated in the second sermon of Friday prayer held in the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) on Friday 9th of Safar 1440 AH corresponding to October 19, 2018, which was led by his eminence Sayed Ahmad al-Safi, in which he stated:
Dear brethren, as we are approaching the Ziyarat Arba’een, I would love to highlight some points:
Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and Imam al-Mahdi (may Allah hasten his holy reappearance) have the same principle, as Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) said: “The purpose of my stand is the reformation of my grandfather’s nation. I intend to enjoin goodness and forbid evil. I want to emulate my grandfather, the Holy Prophet (Allah’s prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) and my father Ali Ibn Abu Talib (peace be upon him). Whosoever accepts me by accepting the truth, then Allah is higher than the truth. And whosoever rejects me then I will bear patiently until Allah adjudges between me and them and He is the best Judge.” And the Holy Prophet (Allah’s prayers be upon him and upon his holy reappearance) said about the Imam al-Mahdi: “Allah will raise a man from my progeny, from my Ahl al-Bayt, by whom the earth will be filled with justice thoroughly the same as it has been filled with injustice and oppression.”
And the visitor of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), especially in the Ziyarat Arba’een, as he is bearing the hardship and suffering of walking to reach the destination to renew the covenant and pledge to sustain his principles, waiting for the Imam of the Order and the Time (may Allah hasten his holy reappearance) who is waiting to receive the divine order to achieve the divine goal of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him). Our path to sustain the principles of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) should be a factor of attraction and longing for his appearance and should strengthen the attachment to Our Imam (may Allah hasten his holy reappearance).
Our path to sustain the principles of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) should be a factor of attraction and longing and strengthening the attachment to Our Imam (may Allah hasten his holy reappearance).
The Ziyarat Ashura states the clear connection between the uprising of Imam al-Hussayn and the reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi (Allah’s prayers be upon them), one is the extension of the other.
Therefore, it is necessary to maintain the atmosphere of the Ziyarat and giving interest in terms of grief, condolences and getting the reward for visiting the Master of the martyrs (peace be upon him). And one has to maintain this atmosphere in order to achieve the desired benefit of the blessed effort of everyone.
To pay attention to the high ethics taught by the at-Taf tragedy, which needs a follow-up from us, as most of the members of the service processions behave in the utmost levels of care and morality. And we hope and aspire that this special atmosphere leave an impact after the Ziyarat on the walkers and visitors. Like we say in the holy month of Ramadhan, the person bear the hunger and thirst but once the holy month ends, he is tense and angry because lunch is delayed for an hour.
The owners of the service processions have high morals and are serving the visitors with humility. And these ethics that we need to nurture because of their positive impact.
Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) was chosen for a divine project, and he selected his companions so they can achieve the great immortal victory. Each of the present has his own role on that day, based on the education of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) to each of them.
We want that the wonderful organization and education of the Master of the martyrs (peace be upon him) be reflected on our actions, hoping that we do not overlook this education in preserving the public property and cleanliness and praying on time.
The Ziyarat is a great opportunity for many brothers to ask questions about religious matters and one should not be shy in asking in matters of religion. More than one thousand preacher, men and women, were deployed along the roads to Karbala. And it is a mistake to be shy for asking.
We recommend the owners of the processions and the walking visitors to be cautious and beware of being targeted by the terrorists because they have been unable face to the security forces that defeat them and prove their failure in the battlefields, and also because they are cowards, they are trying to target the visitors, like they did recently in one of the restaurants and killing innocents. Some areas may be open, and some of those who were defeated in the battles, seek refuge in them until they take the chance to target the visitors, thing that was repeated quite a lot.
Therefore, the owners of the processions and dear visitors have to be vigilant in addition to their sense of service. So, for your safety, you should be careful and the security services should be at the level of responsibility.
We ask Allah to accept the acts of the visitors in safety and security, and to protect all of us and our country from all evil. And the last of our prayers is praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and Allah’s prayers and peace be upon Mohammad and upon his pure and virtuous lineage.
