The representative of the Supreme Religious Authority; Sayed Ahmed Al-Safi has highlighted in the second sermon of Friday prayer of the 12th Muharram 1438 AH corresponding to the 14th of October, 2016, which was held in the holy shrine of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and led by him, a side of Ashura scene by speaking about the courage, valor and insight of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), indicating that today our Mujahideen in the fronts began approaching to this scene and to the power of courage and valor strength of those heroes, stating:
If we review the way the companions of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) went to fight despite their small number. Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) on the morning of Ashura has distributed his few supporters in a military way as they were going to face the enemy during the coming hours, while seeing that the armed enemy has filled the land in front of them because of its abundance. Each of the companions came to the Imam (peace be upon him) to take his permission to fight and then went in front of the enemy presenting himself in a poetic way, and then started killing the enemy's soldiers, putting his sword in their neck, but the coward enemy attacked in groups each of the companions to be able to kill him, throwing them with arrows, lances and even stones. Other companions were watching the whole scene that were filled with screams, swords and lances' wounds and the neighing of horses, but none of them was terrified, in fact each of them was representing hundreds of soldiers, thanks to their faith, insight and loyalty. Some of them even went to the battlefields bare chest without armor, or the one who stood in front of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) until he finished his prayer, while the enemy was throwing his arrows and lances towards him, but he protected him with his chest and heart. It was their faith and courage aside the Imam (peace be upon him) despite their martyrdom that made them eternal.
These Ashura scenes are in the hearts of the dear brothers stationed now in the battlefields, and we have heard from them that they draw their inspiration for combat situation and valor from Ashura school, even after 1400 years, they are valiantly rushing to the battlefields.
Either the young man of 17 years old or the man of 80 years old, all of them find their inspiring personality from the Ashura epic, learning from Habib Ibn Mudhaher or Mulim Ibn 'Awsajah the high spirits, the courage and the strength of religion.
And now, we are proud to know that our heroes in the battlefields are having as example these great companions, who have fought with pride, courage and insight, and were martyred only when the enemy has used methods of cowardice and treachery. Noting that most of the martyrs in our battles were killed with shots in their front or chests, which means that they were facing the enemy. Therefore, we must pray for their victory and we ask them if they hear us to pray for us, as they are the ones in the Jihad, and have the strength and courage to protect the land, honor and sanctities of the homeland, and God willing, the victory will be their ally.
