Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, called on the faithful to adopt the culture of reaction and sympathy with the pains and grievances of people everywhere. “We have to react, sympathize with and feel the pains of other people; otherwise, we should make introspection and correct our course”, he added.
This came during the 18th Ramadan night event which coincides with the greatest Laylat al-Qadr (Night of Power) held in his Eminence’s office in Baghdad, Wednesday, 31/7/2013. His Eminence pointed out to the great reward and the allocation of the means of subsistence during this night. He said if it is well exploited, we would be scoring divine points for one whole year, stressing the need to be up to that night in recognizing what to pray for ourselves, and our parents, beloved ones, and the whole mankind.
Sayyid al-Hakim noted that the best thing ever is to earn the love of Allah, and to find pleasure with the preachers and the worship, in addition to abandoning the worldy things in the dua and instead working for the judgment day. “Ftimah Zahraa (AS) would not have time to pray for herself during the night prayers till al fajr, because she was busy praying for the people, the Muslims, the aggrieved, the distressed, the sick, and those who need duas”, he explained, calling to follow her great lead and walk on this right path shaped by Ahl al-Bayt (AS) in adopting the culture of praying for others and taking care of them.
