The Birth Anniversary of the Dawn of Spirituality and the Guardian of Islam

Congratulations on the occasion of the rising of the sun of Shaban 3rd, marking the birth anniversary of the dawn of spirituality and the guardian of Islam, who renewed the Holy Quran and rescued the Ummah of the Seal of Prophets- peace be upon him and his progeny.

Congratulations on the occasion of the rising of the sun of Shaban 3rd, marking the birth anniversary of the dawn of spirituality and the guardian of Islam, who renewed the Holy Quran and rescued the Ummah of the Seal of Prophets- peace be upon him and his progeny. Felicitations on the birth anniversary of an Imam who redeemed Islam! The holy Imam delivered Islam having been distorted in the murky age of the tyrannical rule of the Yazidis who were about to cover the brilliant face of Islam. The Yazidis worked hard to push into oblivion the arduous efforts of the great Prophet of Islam and the Muslims in the early days of Islam. They were about to waste the blood of selfless martyrs. Congratulations to Muslims of the world and devotees of the red path of Imamah and to the selfless people of great Iran and the combatants, particularly the dear IRGC who designated this auspicious day as the day of pasdar. Blessed is today which portends the victory of right over wrong, the army of Allah over the hordes of Satan! Blessed be today with great successive victories, particularly that of Beitul Muqaddas Battle, as one of the enormous feats unequalled in wars.

The IRGC as a stalwart pillar of the Islamic Revolution and a body playing a tremendous role in its victory liberated the Iranian nation and dear Islam from the dark and sombre nights of the monarchy by setting their mentor, the Doyen of Martyrs, Imam Hussein (a.s.) as their example. The Sepah served as an effective factor for safeguarding the revolution and its goals. In the fronts of the sacred defense of Islam and Islamic land, it resisted in full unity and solidarity with the army, Basij, gendarmerie, tribal people and other military, disciplinary and popular forces “like a solid structure.” They cast the enemies of Islam and humanity away from the battlefields in disgrace and brought glory to Islam and the honorable people of Iran. Neither history nor the Savior (Imam Mahdi) may our souls be sacrificed for him (will forget this honor. God, the Glorified and Exalted, will not spare the servants of Islam, and the Islamic country, in whose ranks these combatants are certainly included, His mercy and blessing.…

Now on the occasion of the auspicious birth anniversary of Imam Hussein (a.s.), the honorable guardian of Islam and the Holy Qur'an, I have a few words with the harbingers of truth and fighters against the enemies of Truth as a reminder for conscious people. With his blood and the blood of his friends and dear ones, Imam Hussein stifled the blasphemous roar of the Yazidis in their nasty throat, while they hollered, “neither any revelation has been sent down nor any Prophet delegated.” This day coincides with the day of the devotee and selfless IRGCs who ended with their pure blood the uproars of the Commander of Qadisiyyah and his criminal friends in their throat.

Dear brothers and apples of my eye! Beware, lest the plagues of victory, atop of which is conceit, God forbid, entrap you unwittingly! Conceit might keep you unaware of the original victor- the Omnipotent God. This is a satanic trick that can cause you lose spirituality, which is the cornerstone of your victory, and can also trigger negligence of the enemy tricks, thus bringing about defeat. The powerful armed forces and the honorable people supporting you should never be neglectful of the manifestation of the power of God within you. The following verses of the Quran can be taken as testimony: “Victory cometh only from Allah” (Quran, 3:126), “Assistance is from God and victory is close by.”(Quran, 61:13) And “Lo! We have given thee a clear victory.”(Quran, 48:1) All beauties, glories and good belong to Him and all defeat, conceit and rebellion is from Satan of the self from which we should seek refuge in God…

I always pray for them and beseech God to grant happiness to all and blessing and elevation of rank to the dear martyrs, patience and, health to their families, complete health and happiness to the disabled who are the apple of our eyes, final victory to combatants, dignity and power to Islam and preservation to the Islamic Republic.
