RNA – During his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in the Iraqi holy city of Karbala’s Holy Shrine of Imam al-Husayn, Hujjat al-Islam Abdul-Mahdi al-Karbala’i said, “The movement of Imam al-Husayn has taught us that Islam is not just the performance of acts of worship and religious rituals.”
The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani in Karbala added, “If we discuss and analyse the lifestyle and the movement of the ‘Master of the Martyrs’ we will recognize that authentic and Husayni Islam emphasizes the struggle of the believing man and the Islamic ummah against deviation and misguidance and defends it against the great dangers that exist during the present time.”
Hujjat al-Islam al-Karbala’i stated, “Many personalities in the history of Islam, who enjoyed a special status in terms of age, knowledge and worship, remained in the corners of their homes due to the dangers that threatened the Islamic ummah and didn’t played a role in assisting Imam al-Husayn.”
The trustee of Holy Shrine of Imam al-Husayn added, “Those who stood with complete courage against the Daesh Takfiri terrorist phenomenon and fought against them with their money and their lives, in fact, they have resorted to the movement of Imam Husayn. Such individuals have preferred religious interests to personal, worldly and family interests.”
Hujjat al-Islam al-Karbala’i emphasized that mankind must study the foundations of the movement of Imam al-Husayn and see how they can be a true Husayni.
