Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, said the call of the religious authority is not arbitrary, rather it is an accurate diagnosis and it invites us to be like Hussain (AS), to stick to his course and to face the ISIS representing the course of Yazid, adding that the youth answered the call and rushed to the fields of Jihad, explaining that the exhaustion and tiresome we feel on the way of Hussein makes us stronger because we are walking towards a sublime goal.
This came in a speech delivered by his Eminence during the procession of late Yassine Rmeity in Samawah, on Friday, December 5, 2014.
His Eminence added that the difficulties we live today are similar to those Hussain (AS) suffered: the ISIS members behead people, hold the women who follow Ahl-al-Bayt and of other religions as hostages and cut off the supply of water, thus symbolizing the Yazidi thought that decapitated Ahl-al-Bayt, held the women of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), and cut off the supply of water from them, underlining the need to face corruptors and corruption and to win for the right. He also urged the visitors to wish victory for the Mujahideen and to pray for their children so that those become followers of Hussain like their fathers, congratulating them for the great reward they earn from commemorating the Hussain (AS) rites. Moreover, he said the love of the people for Hussein is not ephemeral; rather it is the fruit of lucidity, vision, compliance and defense of the project of Hussain (AS), confirming that Hussain is present among his followers through his project and he is alive in their memories.
