HIS EMINENCE WELCOMING DELEGATIONS FROM BAGHDAD, BASRA AND WASIT
LADY ZAHRA (PBUH) OFFERED SACRIFICES FOR THE SAKE OF THE ELEVATION OF ISLAM
* The holy shrines are the
best place to increase a person's closeness to Allah Almighty, and to achieve
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) welcomed
delegations from the capital, Baghdad, Basra, and Wasit provinces, which came
to offer condolences to the Commander of the Faithful (PBUH) on the memory of
the martyrdom of Al-Zahra (PBUH), where His Eminence provided parental guidance
and advice to the delegations.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life ) affirmed
that Lady Zahra (PBUH) is the best example for a daughter, wife and mother, so
you should follow her example, adding that Lady Zahra (PBUH) offered sacrifices
for the sake of the supremacy of Islam and for Muslims to know the right path
and what Zahra (PBUH) endured. It is the result of her insistence (PBUH) to
preserve the religion and its correct pillars.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life ) indicated
the need to invest the pilgrimages to the holy shrines in rebuilding and
reforming the self, improving the daily behavior of the human being,
identifying the places of mistakes and working to correct them, indicating that
these holy places are the best place to increase a person’s closeness to Allah
Almighty, to achieve his satisfaction and to announce the person’s repentance.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) added that
your needs in the holy pilgrimages should be in proportion to the position of
the Imam (PBUH). It is not reasonable to present a set of worldly demands while
you are in the hands of the Imam (PBUH). So your only request is success for
proximity to Allah (the Exalted), and then I pray Allah (Almighty and Majestic)
what you want to achieve victory in this world and the hereafter.
