Following is a summary:

 

The First Sermon

In the first sermon, on the occasion of the birth of Imam Al-Mahdi (aj.), His Eminence, Sayyed Ali Fadlullah, talked about the duties incumbent on us whilst waiting for the Imam’s reappearance. After an introduction stating that all Muslim sects believe in Imam Al-Mahdi’s advent, and that he is one of the descendants of Fatima Az-Zahraa (a.s.), although they differ in terms of whether he has been born or is yet to be born, he explained that there are no evident indications that determine the time of his appearance. He also called on all Muslims to prepare the circumstances that hasten this appearance.

The Sayyed explained that the time of waiting is the time during which we should shoulder our responsibilities of fighting injustice and spreading justice, refuting what some people claim that the more injustice prevails, the sooner he will come.

He ended by the following supplication:

O Allah! Show me the rightly guided face of (the Imam (aj.), the praiseworthy moon (referring to the face of the Imam (aj.) and enlighten my vision by looking at him. And hasten his reappearance, make his arrival smooth, hasten his path, make me tread on his way and implement his authority and strengthen his back”.

 

The second sermon

In the second sermon, His Eminence, Sayyed Ali Fadlullah, talked first about the situation in Lebanon. He thanked God that the Lebanese students were freed from those who made them hostages to fulfill their demands and from falling victims of petty politics. The Sayyed thanked those who made efforts to reach this solution and called for exerting more effort to correct the exams and publish the results.

The Sayyed called on the Parliament to raise the wages, taking in consideration the economic situation of the country. He explained that this can be achieved if they put an end to the waste and impose fines on illegal marine property, levy taxes on luxury items and the very rich… and review the high wages, even those of the officials.

The Sayyed repeated his call to the Parliament to elect a new president, especially that the internal factor is still significant in these elections. He added that once the paramilitary blocs agree on a certain name, the regional and international powers will endorse it.

In Iraq, the Sayyed saw that the country has entered into a very dangerous stage that threatens not only the unity of Iraq, but that of the entire region. In this respect, he called on all the Iraqis to abandon all the sectarian calculations that promote division and unite in the face of what is going on, for none of what is happening pours in the interest of any party.

The Sayyed ended by stating yet again that in the course of encouraging a certain team in the World Cup, it is prohibited to use fireworks, horns and the like.
