His Eminence Ayatollah Sheikh Bashir Al-Najafy (may
Allah prolong his life) welcomed a delegation of pilgrims to Imam Hussein
(peace be upon him) participating in the Arbaeen pilgrimage from the State of
Lebanon to be inspired by the fatherly instructions and advice of His Eminence
(may Allah prolong his life).
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) emphasized
that the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him) is called the Imam of
the pious and it is our duty as believers, followers, and lovers of the
Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him) to be pious; to obtain his care
and intercession in this world and the hereafter.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) added that
the first step in raising the ranks of piety is to hold oneself accountable for
every action and saying, minor and major, and the accountability is daily
before going to sleep. Every wrong action and saying shall be corrected and
provide repentance and excuse for those who have sinned against.
His Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) stated that
the sign of acceptance of visiting the shrines of the Imams of Ahl al-Bayt
(peace be upon them) is a positive change in the behavior and morals of the
visitor in his daily life. This visitor will be a source to correct, reform,
and change society for the better and the best.
