RNA – In a meeting with members of the Ali ibn Muhammad al-Baqir Mawkib and members of the Basirat-e Hoseyni Walking Caravan, Ayatollah Abdonnabi Namazi said, “Going on pilgrimage to the [Holy Shrine] of Imam al-Husayn during the days of mourning for Imam al-Husayn and the Arba’in pilgrimage is a great blessing.”
The representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] in Kashan added, “Participating in the Arba’in pilgrimage is a great blessing as pilgrims from Islamic countries travel on foot to Karbala to participate in the great congress of Imam al-Husayn but this isn’t the entirety of the event of Arba’in and pilgrimage to Imam al-Husayn because this issue has an outward an inward aspect.”
He said, “There are many secrets, wisdom and philosophy in the Arba’in pilgrimage and the pilgrimage to his holy shrine is the outward aspect of this work but there is an inner aspect as well – the presence of tens of millions of Muslims despite all the problems and shortages only for the love of Imam al-Husayn.”
Ayatollah Namazi considered the Arba’in pilgrimage as having many achievements and named the thwarting of the enemies of Islam as one of these achievements and noted, “Today, the United States, Israel and several European countries have started an unequal world war against the school of the Ahl al-Bayt.”
His Eminence added that this unequal world war against the school of the Ahl al-Bayt is a serious war and their potential in this dream is 100 percent and our capabilities are only a few percent. However, throughout the past 1400 years, there has always been victory from the front of Imam al-Husayn and they have been defeated.
Ayatollah Namazi said, “No power has the ability to stop the advance of Karbala and Ashura and today is the era of the siege of arrogant powers of the world by the oppressed people of the world.”
He described the destruction of Saudi Arabia’s most important oil export centre [Aramco Refinery] and the halting of 50% of Saudi Arabia’s oil exports by Ansarullah and the people of Yemen as a great success for the Muslim, Shi’ah and oppressed people of Yemen and added, “The United States and Saudi Arabia who look down with greed on Yemen received a hard defeat from Yemen.”
Ayatollah Namazi referred to the killing, wounding and capturing of a large number of members of the Saudi coalition by the Yemeni forces in the recent operation “Victory from God” as yet another defeat of the Saudi military and added, “The Saudi attack on Yemen isn’t a new issue in the present era but rather it’s a continuation of the same Ashura movement after 1400 years.”
