REPRESENTATIVE OF HIS EMINENCE GRAND AYATOLLAH AL-NAJAFY AT THE 15TH SHA'BAN CELEBRATION
THE SO-CALLED ADVOCATES OF MAHDISM WITH VARIOUS TITLES ARE ANTI-SHIITE OR ANTI-ISLAMIC PROJECTS
The representative of His
Eminence, the Grand Ayatollah Sheikh Bashir Al-Najafy (may Allah prolong his
life), and the director of his central office in the Holy Najaf, His Eminence
Sheikh Ali Al-Najafy participated in the annual festival of the birth of Imam
Al-Mahdi (may Allah Almighty hasten his reappearance) which is held in Holy
Karbala, where he conveyed the peace and supplication of His Eminence the Grand
Ayatollah Sheikh Bashir Al-Najafy (may Allah prolong his life) to the believers
participating in the revival of the Ziyarat of the 15th of Sha’ban, offering
congratulations on the auspicious birth anniversary of the savior of humanity
and his pure ancestors.
Al-Najafy affirmed in his speech that he directed to the crowds present that our
belief in Imam Mahdi (may Allah Almighty hasten his reappearance) the
establishment of his just state, is a firm belief that the deceivers and haters
of the doctrine of Shiism and Islam do not budge, stressing his Eminence that
the misguided groups, including those who claim Mahdism or direct contact with
the Awaited Imam (may Allah Almighty hasten his reappearance) and with various
titles project hostile to doctrine and Islam because their ideas and premises
are based on illusion, falsity, and superficial readings, and political agendas
stand behind them.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) added that the enemies of Shiism seek
to strike the sect and the most Holy Najaf and then strike Islam by relying on
these misguided and misleading calls, stressing that the narrations of Ahl al-Bayt
(peace be upon them) are clear and evident in responding to these false calls
and that the Awaited Imam Mahdi has shown their lies before their mothers give
birth to them.
Al-Najafy emphasized the importance and cultural and religious status of Iraq,
pointing to the necessity of preserving the national and religious identity,
which the enemies of Iraq are trying to undermine.
