* The Iraqi people defied terrorism and performed the pilgrimage
ceremonies, and today they are defying the Corona pandemic under the auspices
and care of Imams Hussein and his grandson Al-Mahdi (PBUT).
The representative of His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) and
director of his office His Eminence Sheikh Ali Al-Najafy participated in the
walk of the Arbaeen pilgrimage with the faithful from the capital Baghdad - the
road linking Baghdad to the city of Hilla - where he met with the convoys of pilgrims
and the Husseini processions in the city of Mahmudiyah, passing to them His
Eminence’s (may Allah prolong his life) greetings and prayers for having
success and steadfastness.
Sheikh Al-Najafy, in his conversation with the pilgrims, stressed that
the difficult circumstances that have passed on the world in general and the
Iraqi people in particular due to the spread of the Corona pandemic have made
Iraqi society stronger, coherent and compassionate, stressing that today they
prove that they are in the footsteps of the Imams Ahlulbait (PBUT) and adhere
to their orders and true approach.
Al-Najafy indicated that the texts mentioned by the immaculate imams
(PBUT) confirm the pilgrimage of Imam Hussein (PBUH) in all circumstances,
especially in light of fear and prevention, indicating that the Iraqi defied
terrorism and before it the terror of the fascist Baath regime in Iraq, and
they performed the pilgrimage ceremony today, challenging the Coronavirus
pandemic under the auspices and care of Imams Hussein and his grandson Al-Mahdi
In an interview with the Husseini processions, Sheikh Ali Al-Najafy
addressed them saying: “you are truly the kings and the owners of the crowns,
and your service has increased your honor in this world and the hereafter. Do
wait for your honor on the Day of Resurrection, when Allah (the Exalted) will
please and grant you the best reward”, stressing that all believers need to
know and learn about the life of Ahlulbait (PBUT) to follow and be guided by
their life so that the deeds are in conformity with the methodology and
tradition of Ahlulbait(PBUT), away from impurities and mistakes.
His Eminence focused on the importance of adhering to health prevention
regulations and the instructions of the Ministry of Health, in compliance with
the directives of the religious authority in holy Najaf to preserve the people
of this honorable country.
