Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI), has stressed that the mission of al-Hussain (Ú) is humanitarian, and his message is one of life, not of death. His eminence cited evidence from this statement of al-Hussain (Ú): “I did not march out seeking to commit evil, nor out of indolence, nor to commit oppression, nor to cause corruption; rather, I have marched out seeking to reform the nation of my grandfather,” stressing that this slogan is one for building a nation and a society. This came up during the Hussaini mourning gathering held by the tribe of Bani Laam of al-Ta`aan which was held in the hall of the Oil Cultural Center in Baghdad on Wednesday, November 21, 2012.
His Eminence discussed the ongoing situations in Gaza, Syria, Bahrain and Iraq, emphasizing that the plan of al-Hussain (Ú), his way and methodology are capable of uniting the nation and resolving its problems, and this is how we seek solace from al-Hussain (Ú).
The Head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq pointed out that the companions of al-Hussain (Ú) were a mosaic from various social segments, pointing out that al-Hussain (Ú) was able to contain all political movements, even the opposing movements such as those of Zuhair ibn al-Qayn who disagreed with al-Hussain (Ú), but he was one of the symbols of Kerbala.
Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim lauded the tribe of Bani Laam and its role in supporting Islam and the Hussaini issue, explaining that there is a warmth for al-Hussain (Ú) in the hearts of the faithful, as the Holiest Prophet (Õ) says, “There is warmth in the heart of the faithful for the killing of my son al-Hussain that shall never cool down.”
