Youm-e-Shahadat Hazrat Ali observed

Islamabad, June 17, 2017 (PPI-OT):The Youm-e-Shahadat (Martyrdom Anniversary) of Maula-e-Kainaat Sher-e-Khuda Amirul Momineen Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) was observed throughout the country with religious spirit, devotion and respect Saturday. Taboot processions were taken out from all small and big cities, towns and villages and Majalis-e-Aza were held at mosques and Imambargahs addressed by Ulema Karam, Waizeen and Zakireen who highlighted the seerat of Amirul Momineen in detail in their address.

The main Taboot procession in the twin cities of Rawalpindi-Islamabad was taken out from Mohanpura in which Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board and chief of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi participated in the procession, performed Ziarat and took part in Matamdari. He was accompanied by Ulema Karam and elite.

Agha Moosavi while talking to media persons and mourners on the occasion said that after Allah’s Nabi (SAAW), the personality of Ali (A.S.) the point of unity among Muslims. The Muslims suffering with anarchy should hold the Daman of Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) to come out of problems faced by them and can benefit them with the Shifaat-e-Mustafvi (SAAW) by making access to Madina-tul-Ilm. American-Islami-Arabi alliance is the conspiracy to divert Muslims from Bait Allah and bow them down before the Bait Al-Abyaz (White House). He said Muslims should not be afraid of satanic powers and should pitch themselves against the enemies of Islam by demonstrating the courage and bravery of Maulood-e-Harm Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.).

The TNFJ chief said that Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) is the only personality about whom the Rasool (SAAW) said that Ali is the Maula of all those I am the Maula of whom. Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) is that great personality who was declared by Nabi Kareem (SAAW) as his Nafs on which the Ayah-e-Mobahila of Sura Aal-e-Imran stands witness. Insult of Ali (A.S.) is the insult of Nabi (SAAW).

He called upon the government to take notice of humiliation committed against the dignity of Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) by a newspaper and action may be taken against the ideological sympathisers and patrons under the National Action Plan. He said that the dignity of Hazrat Ali Ibne Talib (A.S.) and the Punjtan Paak (A.S.) is recognized by all Masalik and Makatib and even by non-Muslims. Participation of Shias, Sunnis and even Hindus and Christians in the Youm-e-Shahadat Hazrat Ali procession is the display of eternal unity and brotherhood which is laudable.

Agha Moosavi said that confrontation with oppressors and support and help for the oppressed is the eternal message of Ali Ibne that is why we consider it our foremost duty to raise Kalma-e-Haq against every oppressor and atrocious ruler. He said they will express their solidarity the oppressed persons the world over including the oppressed Kashmiris and Palestinians by observing Youm Al-Quds Himayat Mazloomin on Jumatul Widah who have been ignored by the world conscious and even by the Muslim States.

He said the chief of the colonial powers i.e. America is looting the resources of Muslims with both hands; on one side it is accusing Qatar in favour of Saudis and is selling arms worth billions of dollars to Qatar on the other. But, he added, Muslim rulers are not exercising wisdom and are falling victim to their own destructions by limiting themselves into their self and ego. He said today the Islamic World is confronted with the challenge of terrorist Khawarij and there is need to follow the seerat of Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) to confront them. He said Ali (A.S.) is that personality who opened his eyes in the lap of Nabi (SAAW) while Nabi (SAAW) closed his eyes in the lap of Ali (A.S.).
