Regarding the role of General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandis in establishing security in Iraq, the Belgian pilgrim stated, “What they did was great. They dignified the Shiites so that no one can disturb the Shiites today. This is true not only in Iraq and Iran but also in other countries.”
AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Regarding the role of General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandis in establishing security in Iraq, the Belgian pilgrim stated, “What they did was great. They dignified the Shiites so that no one can disturb the Shiites today. This is true not only in Iraq and Iran but also in other countries.”
The Belgian pilgrim who took part in the Arbaeen walk said, “Love for Imam Hussain (a.s.) is the main love of life. This love creates gravity for us in such a way that we cannot give up going in the Arbaeen walk in Karbala.”
“Some pilgrims come to Arbaeen pilgrimage to pray for their needs to be met and for their patients to be healed. They believe that they should get their needs from Imam Hussain (a.s.) and Hazrat Abbas (a.s.). Because these holy lights will surely answer their pilgrims. Therefore, whoever has any need, the main source of light of divine grace is Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his family (AhlulBayt), and these lights must be resorted to,” said Hojat al-Islam Sayed Mustafa, who is of Moroccan origin, in an interview with ABNA News Agency.
“How to describe the taste of honey? It is difficult to express. In the same way, the Arbaeen Walk stems from the love and affection for Imam Hussain (a.s.) and is indescribable. If you ask anyone who participated in Arbaeen Walk, he will answer that that he has a great feeling in his body, heart, and soul that cannot be described,” Sayed Mustafa, who is active in propagation Islam and teaching in Belgium, said, describing his feelings about the Arbaeen Walk.
“The lessons of justice, the uprising against the oppressors, and the uprising of truth against falsehood are the lessons of the uprising of Karbala. These are not only lessons for Shiites and Muslims, but the uprising of right against wrong is attractive to all freedom seekers in the world. Human beings should not only defend their family members and religion but should support all the oppressed. These messages are taught to us by the uprising of Imam Hussain (a.s.),” said Hojat al-Islam Sayed Mustafa in response to the question “What lesson do we learn from the uprising of Imam Hussain (a.s.)?”
“The way and lesson of the Prophet Muhammad and his family (a.s.) and Imam Hussain (a.s.) is to have humanity. Because humanity leads to the final destination. The path of humanity is only in the school of Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his AhlulBayt (a.s.) and there is nothing other than this path,” he said on the messages of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and his Arbaeen.
“In Arbaeen Walk, we see that millions of people visit the shrine of Imam Hussain (a.s.). Just imagine what will happen when Imam Mahdi (a.s.) appears? Hundreds of times of this population, people will gather. “Indeed, my ancestor was killed while he was thirsty”, Imam Mahdi (a.s.) will say from the side of the Kaaba, as he appears. Then, the people of the world will hear this and will rush to his aid. Today, Labbayk YA Hussain (a.s.) is Labbayk YA Imam Mahdi (a.s.),” said the religious expert on the relationship between the beauties of Arbaeen and the time of Advent of Imam Mahdi (a.s.).
“The AhlulBayt (a.s.) taught us good and pure morality, and it is our duty to propagate this ethic to the world. We hate the so-called Islam of ISIL, blood, and murder. The behavior of ISIL and terrorists is not based on Sharia. They introduce religion through murder and slaughter,” he said, introducing propagation of religion of truth and good and pure morality of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) as the most important duty of Muslims in the present age.
“In Belgium, we have no problem mourning for the AhlulBayt (a.s.). Of course, there are limitations due to the outbreak of Covid-19. But we have a hussainiyya and a mosque and we hold our normal ceremonies, and we have no problem with that. We do not even have problems with the Sunni brothers. They are active in their mosques and Islamic centers, and we are active in our mosques, hussainiyahs, and Islamic centers. Of course, a few years ago, a terrorist with a prior plan our mosque and martyred a cleric named Abdullah Dahdouh. The Mawkeb that came from Belgium to the Arbaeen Walk is named after the martyr Dahdouh. This terrorist incident was an exception and we do not have any problems now. We even mourn for AhlulBayt (a.s.) in the streets,” said Hojat al-Islam Sayed Mustafa on the mourning Majales of Shiites in Belgium.
“What General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes did was great. They dignified the Shiites so that no one can disturb the Shiites today. This is true not only in Iraq and Iran but also in other countries. These two martyrs resisted the oppressors with their lives; and with their martyrdom, Islam was helped and revived.” he said, regarding the role of General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes in establishing security in Iraq.
“God willing, Imam Mahdi (a.s.) will appear and we will sincerely obey him,” the religious expert concluded.
