There is no doubt that the lessons of At-Taf will continue until the last Hour will be established. And the one who is familiar with the course of things in Iraq, knows for sure that the majority of respondents of the Fatwa are the people of Hussayni rituals, or maybe all of them.
And so the school of the Arba'een of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) has the greater impact in forging the Iraqi personality -especially the Shia personality- as it gives great lessons of patience, sacrifice, endurance and selflessness, which are the victory keys in any battle. What about the battle between the descendants of Yazeed and the descendants of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him).
It will definitely be the application of the lesson, and this is what was indicated by the supreme religious authority in the sermon of the last Friday prayer, led by its representative Sayed Ahmed Al-Safi, in which he stated:
“The dear brothers who are fighting now and stationed in the battlefield used to participate before with their brothers in this Ziyarat, and now they are defending the country and the people against the terrorist gangs called ISIL. They have the benefits and blessings of this Ziyarat, as they have the courage, valour and bravery and Allah has protected them and gave them victory over their enemy. And if their bodies were deprived from this Ziyarat, but they have its reward and more, in addition that many of the visitors have shared the reward of their Ziyarat with them, and they got a double reward. If only we were with them!”
