MESSAGE OF HIS EMINENCE TO REJECT TRIBAL CONFLICTS


Praise be to Allah and peace and blessings be upon his Messenger Muhammad and his pure progeny…

In such days, back to 1400 years ago, the prophet Muhammad (PBUH & HF) delivered his farewell speech in which Muslims were advised to commit to a lot of things. Among these things are: to obey critical matters, to keep promise, to cast out Ignorance Age traditions in order not to get back to be disbelievers. One of these essential recommendations was about shedding blood, where the prophet (PBUH &HF) said: “Which is the holiest day?” They said “today”. he said “which is the holiest month?” they said “this month” he said which the holiest country is?” they said this country”. He said “then, your blood, your properties are as holy as this day, this month and this country. They said “yes”. Then he said “o Allah, be a bare witness, he who has any trust should keep it for the sake of the one who trust him with. No Muslim blood or properties are permissible and do not become unbelievers after my death.

O believers, our great prophet (PBUH &HF) gave the sequence of those who shed blood which is blasphemy, he said "do not be blasphemous after my death". Thus, killing the believer is the very blasphemy, and here the ayat in the holy Quaran “Whoso slayeth a believer of set purpose, his reward is Hell for ever. Allah is wroth against him and He hath cursed him and prepared for him an awful doom’’

For the danger of this act, the Messenger Muhammad (PBUH) didn’t stop at that extent, rather he made who participates or attempts or accepts such act is regarded the same as the killing.

So, brothers, religion is not only to pray or fast, it is how to treat one another. Islam means peace; Muslim is the one who all Muslims are in peace with. Therefore, you must reconcile each and one another. This reconcile is much better than to pray or to fast only as mentioned in the holy Ayat “The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo! he, between whom and thee there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend” and the Ayat also “those who control their wrath and are forgiving toward mankind; Allah loveth the good”

O believers be and do good to one another, forgive one another, especially you are an example of others and a symbol of your folks being head of tribes. People are looking forward to seeing the best from you. So be the first who say and do well, and be informed that all your acts will be noticed by Imam Hujja (AJ). So do good to cast out the devil, who wants to bring you hostility.

In conclusion, we are in Al-Najaf waiting good news from you which can bring life back to people and to your tribes. Do what pleases Allah and His Messenger (PBUH &HF), be people of action before being of words, and we deeply believe in you.
