Taboot Sher-e-Khuda processions were taken out on the Shahadat of Ali Al Murtaza (AS) throughout the country; Scientific Calendar is unacceptable, Islam is not in danger instead rulers are - Hamid Moosavi

ISLAMABAD/RAWALPINDI, May 28: The Youm-e-Shahadat of Hazrat Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) was commemorated on Monday throughout the world with faith, respect and religious fervour. Taboot Sher-e-Khuda processions were taken out on this occasion from all the small and big cities, towns and villages in which the mourners paid ‘Pursa’ of Shahadat-e-Ali (A.S.) in Bargah-e-Risalat through chest-beating, Noha Khwani, Zanjeer-Zani and Qama-Zana. Ulema, Waizeen and Zakireen addressed the Majalis-e-Aza in Masajid and Imambargah in which they highlighted the seerat of Amirul Momineen Hazarat Ali (A.S.).

            The main Taboot procession of twin cities of Rawalpindi-Islamabad was taken out from Mohanpur, which was attended among others by Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi. He also performed Ziarat of Taburrukaat and participated in Matamdari. On this occasion, talking to mourners and representatives of national and international media, Agha Moosavi rejected the scientific lunar calendar saying that Halal-e-Muhammad (SAAW) is Halal till the D-day and is Haram-e-Muhammad (SAAW) Haram till the Hereafter. He said the scientific revelations are not final as science goes behind Islam. We only recognize Allah, Rasool (SAAW) Aal-e-Athaar (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kubaar. The enlightenment of Zikr-e-Ali (A.S.) will remain even if the quantum of load-shedding is increased.

            The TNFJ chief said that Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) preferred the justice and fair-play over politics but here it is going otherwise. We would have to follow Shoeb-e-Abi Talib (A.S.) so as to save the sinking economy, he said adding that Muslim rulers are using the name of Harmain and Islam to save their rule. He said there is no danger to Islam, the protector of Islam is Allah, Muslim rulers should not make Islam as their shield rather they should become the shield Islam and Harmain like the Ahle Bait (A.S.) did. He said Muslims are being divided, Arab League was formed to create differences between Arabs and Ajam while the OIC is being pushed back. He asked where the 39-nation Alliance was when Pakistan was attacked, the arrest of Israeli pilot involved in attack on Pakistan cannot remained hidden. He said Muslim should not be afraid and united within and keep their faith in Allah as he gives victory to 313 Muslims over lakhs of atheists. He advised Muslims to get rid of satanic trio. He said Pakistan is confronted with external terrorism from their perpetual enemy from the day one. He said had Pakistan not interfered in Afghanistan, then there was no justification for internal terrorism in Pakistan while terrorism would have faded had the National Action Plan was implemented in letter and spirit. He advised the government to find out the elements that created hurdles in implementation of the National Action Plan.

            Answering the question on country’s tangible economic situation, Agha Moosavi said that the colonial forces and anti-Islam and anti-Pakistan forces their own interests dear, while our rulers loving their chair only and work to keep their chair intact. We are followers of those who eat grass in Abi Talib (A.S.) but did not bow down before the evil. In response to another question, he said the Muslims rulers should keep in mind that if Iran is the target today then other Muslim countries will be on the target tomorrow. He said Iran was the first to recognize Pakistan and the Quaid-i-Azam had declared Iran as Pakistan’s best friend.

            The TNFJ chief while stating the Fazail of Amirul Momineen Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) said that Ali Ibn Abi Talib is the masterpiece of the Nature. Ali (A.S.) could not tolerate any kind of oppression even for a while and he always preferred justice and fair-play over politics and this justice became the cause of his martyrdom. He said the Rasool (SAAW) had declared Ali as the best judge. The justice of Ali can be judged that he divided Marhab into two with his sword and both piece of his body were equal.

            Agha Moosavi said that Hazrat Ali ibe Abi Talib (A.S.) opened his eyes in the lap of Rasool (SAAW) while the Messenger of Allah (SAAW) closed his eyes in the lap of Ali (A.S.). Hazrat Ali (A.S.) offered his first Nimaz along with Hazrat Khadija (A.S.) and the Rasool (SAAW). Hazrat Ali (A.S.) won the title of Nabi’s (SAAW) Wasi, Minister and Khalifate by support the Risalat of the Rasool (SAAW) in ‘Dawat Zul-Asheerah’. Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) created and singular example by sleeping in the bed of Rasool (SAAW) on Shab-e-Hijrat. On the day of Muakhzaat, the Rasool (SAAW) had declared Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) as his brother here and the Hereafter. In Ghazwa-e-Badr when everyone ran away leaving the Rasool (SAAW) behind, it was Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) who remained firm to defend him. On the occasion of Ghazwa-e-Khandaq, while confronting with Umar bin Abdwad, the Rasool (SAAW) declared the hit (Zarbat) of Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) superior thatn that of ‘Ibadat-e-Saqlain’. Sulah-e-Hudaibia was also written by the hands of Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.).

            The TNFJ chief said that when the fort of Khyber was not conquered for 39 days, the Prophet (SAAW) gave Alam (flag) to Ali (A.S.) awarding with the title of ‘Karrar’ and ‘Ghair-e-Faraar’ and he achieved the great victory of Islam over Zionists. The Prophet (SAAW) tool Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) for Mobahila along with Syeda-e-Kainaat (S.A.) and Hasnain Karimain (A.S.) as a result of which the Christian had to bow down before Islam. At the place called Khum-e-Ghadeer, the Prophet (SAAW) said: "Ali (A.S.) is the Maula of all those, to whom I am the Maula.” Hazrat Omar Khattab was the first to greet Ali (A.S.) on becoming the Maula. This question is still being heard in the history that when in the life of Messenger of Allah (SAAW) Ali (A.S.) always remained a winner, then why benefits were not derived from Ali (A.S.) in other eras. In the eras of Khulfa-e-Rashideen, Ali (A.S.) protected Islam in every difficult time. There is a saying of Hazat Omar ibn Khattab (R.A.) that I would have been killed if there was no Ali (A.S.). He said the Islamic World would have to hold the Daman of Murtaza (A.S.) and Mustafa (SAAW) if they want to see prosper.

            The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, on this occasion announced to express solidarity with the oppressed people by observing the Jummaul Widah as Youm Al-Quds Himayat Mazloomin. Salars of Matmi Tanzeems, Shia and Sunni elite and office-bearers of Markazi Milad Committee and Anjuman Tajraan met Agha Moosavi under the leadership of Divisional Khateeb Hafiz Iqbal Rizvi and Nadeem Sheikh and offered condolence on Shahadat of Hazrat Ali ibe Abi Talib (A.S.). Special security arrangements were made by the Administration for the main procession of Shahadat Hazrat Ali (A.S.). In addition to the heavy contingent of police, hundreds of volunteers from Mukhtar Force, Ibrahim Scouts, and open groups were deputed for security arrangements.

            Meanwhile, the procession in which over a dozen Matmi Halqas from Rawalpindi Region and thousands of mourners participated terminated after reaching Imambargah Col. Maqbool Hussain at Sehr time after marching through Fawwara Chowk and Trunk Bazar. Azadari Camp was installed at Kashmiri Bazar by Mukhtar Students Organisation, Mukhtar Generation Rawalpindi where Sabeel was arranged for participants of the procession. Ibrahim Scouts provided first aid to those who performed zanjeer-zani at the first aid camp installed by them.

            Meanwhile, according to reports reaching the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih, Shahdat-e-Ali Majalis were held and Taboot processions were taken out from all small and big cities and towns of the country including Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Multan, Faisalabad, Peshawar, Gujrat, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Larkana, Jecobabad, Bahawalpur, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Kohat, Hangu, Parachinar, Dera Ismail Khan, Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Bagh, Mirpur, Dhudial, and Azad Kashmir.
