After more than 90 years on the last fatwa for Jihad: the "Sufficiency duty" fatwa (to defend the territory and the holy places) of Sayed Al-Sistani shake the ground under the feet of the aggressors..

This wounded country passed through many painful events, from which its people suffered murders, forced migration and displacements by the different takfiri terrorist groups. Every day, improvised explosive devices and different bombs have killed or wounded dozens of innocents.

The Supreme Religious Authority represented in his eminence Sayed Ali Al-Husseini Al-Sistani has shown wisdom, sagaciousness and discernment throughout the years, as it is the source of safety in this patient country. However the last fatwa had shaken the ground under the feet of oppressors, aggressors and whoever is supporting them, and terrified those who set up the takfiri obscurantist plans to bring terror and distortion to this country.

History will never forget the repercussions of this fatwa, as it left a clear imprint in the contemporary history of Iraq, like for the last fatwa of Jihad issued at that time by the supreme religious authority in the holy Najaf, during the revolution of the twenties in 1920.

The great new statement of the Supreme Religious Authority explained by its representatives Sayed Ahmad Al-Safi and Sheikh Abdul Mahdi Al-Karbala'i, came on a very precise time according to the critical circumstances faced by the country in the current time, where we can read important issues to focus about such as the need of bravery, courage, fortitude, patience, uniting the ranks and putting aside all kind of differences. The most wonderful point in this fatwa is to lend the status of martyr to those who get killed defending the honour of the homeland against the aggressors, in a clear indication of the legitimacy of confrontation and holiness of acting to stop this vicious attack against Iraq and its people.

The verses of the holy Quran cited by the representative of the supreme authority Sheikh Abdul Mahdi Al-Karbalai during his Friday's sermon have given spiritual and moral impetus for acting against oppressing aggressors, like:

- {O you who have believed, persevere and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah that you may be successful.{ (3:200)
- {Said Moses to his people, "Seek help through Allah and be patient. Indeed, the earth belongs to Allah . He causes to inherit it whom He wills of His servants. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous."{ (7:128)
- {And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.} (8:46)
- {Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said,"When is the help of Allah ?" Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.} (2:214)
- {Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.} (2:190)
