RNA – Speaking at a mourning ceremony on the second night of Muharram at Qom’s Shohada Husayniyah, Hujjat al-Islam Mohammad-Reza Ashtiani, the assistant director of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom, praised Hezbollah’s brave response to the audacious attacks by the Zionist regime and said, “Like the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Hezbollah has learned lessons from the school of Imam al-Husayn and Ashura, which have shaken the bodies of the Zionist regime and Zionists.”
His Eminence stated that human beings are in need of tawassul [resorting to the Prophet and Ahl al-Bayt] and having a relationship with the Ahl al-Bayt and referred to Godwariness and having a relationship with the Ahl al-Bayt as the basis of human happiness.
Hujjat al-Islam Ashtiani described sin an act of oppression by man against his right and added, “Sin is like a black blemish on the heart of the human being. If it’s ignored, it will cover the whole heart and body of the sinner and therefore, we must repent quickly to receive divine favour and forgiveness.”
His Eminence considered supplication and benediction as insuring mankind and continued, “Ziyarat Ashura is a revolutionary supplication that emphasizes wilayah (guardianship) and the disavowal of the enemies and gives insight to mankind.”
He said that we must recognize the enemies’ conspiracies and act against their will and added, “It must not be assumed that the enemies of Islam today, such as the United States and the Zionists, are less secure.”
Hujjat al-Islam Ashtiani said, “Having a relationship with and resorting to the Master of the Martyrs [Imam al-Husayn] is means of salvation and insurance for mankind and for this reason, we have observed that throughout history until now, all the greats have emphasized upon the establishment of gatherings in commemoration of Imam al-Husayn.”
