Statement of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on occasion of martyrdom of Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (s.a.)

Monday, 18 January 2021

In statement, AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly has issued a statement on occasion of martyrdom of Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (a.s.).

The full text of the message is as follow:

«In His Name, The Most High»

«Peace of Allah be upon you, O truthful and pure, Ladyof the Women of Paradise and all Women of the Worlds, from the first to the last»

The days of commemorating the character of HazratFatimahPBUH have arrived once again; The season of renewing ourvow as lovers and followers of the Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.), with a Modelof a pure Muslim lady, who herself never failed or even hesitated in remaining faithful and loyal to the divine covenant, in following the footsteps courseof Prophethood and Imamate,and in sacrificing her wealth, health, and even progeny for the true and sublime cause of Islam. The Holy Qur’an puts it as:«Those themselves are theones who are (really) truthful» (49:15)

The principle of Imamateand Wilayah of the Ahlul-Bayt (PBUH), if accompanied by empathy, sincere support, and practical coordination of the Ummah(community) with the divine leader, is the chief guarantor for dismantling oppression and is the uniqueand irreplaceable axis of unity, peace, security and justice; a principlethat has been emphasized by Hazrat Zahra (PBUH) as she is quoted to have said: “… and (Allah) has rendered obedience to us a system for the integrity ofthe Nation, and our imamate (Leadership)as a means for immunity againstdivision and disintegrity”. (Dala’ilul Imamah, p. 33)

But nowadays, and after the enemies of Islam and the obstinate “Muslim-looking”and Takfirist groupslike ISIS had become frustrated and crestfallenwith their wicked plans for launching seditious disputes and creating an atmosphere of hatred, enmity, division and schismatism within the Ummah and thereby inciting Sunni and Shiite religious wars,have recently come up with yet another and even more vicious idea of introducing and supporting fake Muftis and References who dare to issue fictitious rulings that lead to religious discord and instigate disunity.Most recently and in an unprecedented move, they have even sought bringing the effective language of arts to the servitude of their mischievous intentions. They have embarked upon producingone-sided films and documentary looking programsthat feature and narrate controversial issues and events that serve to widen the hair cracks present within the body of the Ummah.But today, thanks to Allah, awakening of Muslims and their vigilance and adherence to the Pure Mohammadan School, and most importantly by means of Fatwas issued by Great References and prominentUlama and Scholars,those who oppose the concept of unity of Islamic Ummahhave become conspicuously disgraced more than ever.

The Ahlul-Bayt (PBUH) World Assembly while honoring the high position of the Infallible Imams (PBUT) and their revered mother Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (PBUH) beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), and offering condolences and expressing commiserationon the Fatimiyah days(the anniversary of her martyrdom), strongly condemns any actions taken under the pretext of defending thedaughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and explicitly separates its stance and line of thought and practicefrom those who insist on magnifying differences and divisionsamongMuslims and as such incite conspiracies against them. On this sorrowful occasion that should be dedicated to renewing our loyalty and commitment to the Divine Wilayah, the Ahlul-Bayt (PBUT) World Assembly Calls the Nation of Qur’an and Itrahto increase its efforts in deepening and widening its scope of insight.

This Assembly (which is attributed to the family of the Prophet) humbly demands all Lovers and followers of the Holy Beings (PBUT), especially itsaffiliates, and all Ahlul-Bayt- related associations, centers,institutions, seminaries, as well as all sympathetic scholars of Pure Muhammadan Islam, in every corner of the world to help putting an end to this sinister plot and commemorate theseFatimiyah Days with extreme vigilance, and in accordance with pertinent local conditions. The Islamic Ummah cannot take such seditions any more, and must raise itself to a level that truly enables it to fulfill its responsibilities and duties in uniting the Islamic society and paving the way for Islamic moderation and rationality. Thus, it must utilize all its capacities in the cyberspace and in printed, radio, and TV media to implement and actualize this Fatimi Culture. It goes without saying that at this critical juncture, supporting and defending similar activities carried out by our wise and sage Sunni Brethren will be very helpful and of outmost importance.

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message over martyrdom of Dr. Fakhrizadeh

Ayatollah Ramazani’s Message over martyrdom of Dr. Fakhrizadeh

In a message, Secretary General of AhlulBayt World Assembly, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani offered his condolences and also congratulated on the martyrdom of Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, an Iranian nuclear and defense scientist.

The text of the Message is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah: of them some have completed their vow (to the extreme), and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least” (Holy Quran, Surah al-Ahzab Verse 23)

The terrorist attack of the criminal agents of the global arrogance and martyrdom of Dr. Haj Mohsn Fakhrizadeh, a prominent nuclear scientist and serving mujahed of the Islamic Iran, has affected and saddened Iranians and Muslims around the world, but also free the people from every nationality and religion.

The vicious act, which took place on the anniversary of the martyrdom of another nuclear martyr (Martyr Majid Shahriari) and around the first anniversary of the martyrdom of the glorious resistance commanders Hajj Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, was reminiscent of the cowardly crime of the American terrorist regime at Baghdad airport.

This kind of the state and purposeful terrorism, violates not only all human rights but also all of international law respected by humanity. The disgrace of the commanders and the agents of this crime increases when the world knows that the unclean hands of the enemies of the knowledge took the life of a scientist who struggled to alleviate human suffering, and his latest achievement was a “diagnostic kit” and a “vaccine” to cure Pandemic virus of the Covid-19.

I, as the Secretary-General of AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Organization, to which hundreds of elites from various countries are members, declare that we must stand up to terrorism in every possible mean and cure this virus, which is more dangerous than Covid-19. To cure it and put an end to these crimes, it is necessary for religious scholars, human rights activists, knowledge enthusiasts, media that have not sold carriers and are still striving to achieve truth and freedom, civil society organizations for human values, and all those for whom the fate of the world matters, by whatever means at their disposal, to confront the masterminds and the main perpetrators of this crime.

Sooner or later, the silence of influential people and the passivity of human rights organizations will make terrorism rampant all over the world, as had happened before, in addition to Iran, about the figures and scientists of countries such as Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon and Palestine.

In this regard, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is ready to establish any kind of bilateral or multilateral cooperation with non-governmental organizations and individuals and legal entities.

In the end, I congratulate and also offer my condolences on the martyrdom of this hardworking thinker to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei, the activists in nuclear and defense science and industry, his colleagues and students, and especially his patient wife and dear children.

I pray to God for that dear martyr high position in heaven, companionship with his Imam, Imam Hussein (a.s.), patience for his family, and healing for the injured in that terrorist incident.

Oh God, grant us success in martyrdom in your path, and make us join the righteous.

“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran, Surah al-Baghara: Verse 156)

The full text of the statement come as follow:


In the name of the God


مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا


“Of the believers are men who are true to the covenant which they made with Allah: so of them is he who accomplished his vow, and of them is he who yet waits, and they have not changed in the least.” (Holy Quran Surah Ahzab Verse 23)


Today Friday 3 January 2020, the sacred lands of Iraq which witnessed 14 centuries ago the ultimate stand for Justice and truth by the Leader of Martyrs, Imam Husayn (a.s) once again became drenched in the blood of an elite martyr of our time.


It is indeed with a great shock that AHLUL BAIT (A.S) FOUNDATION OF SOUTH AFRICA (AFOSA) received the news of the assassination and consequent martyrdom of General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Quds Force.


General Soleimani served the Iranian people in particular in various positions in its army for more than 40 years and simultaneously served the Muslim Ummah and humanity at large beyond the Iranian borders during this time.


He became internationally famous when he initially provided strategic and logistical support to Syria during 2011 when it faced a civil war and played an instrumental role in combating the emergence of ISIS in both Syria and Iraq and ensuring its eventual extinction. His selfless sacrifice and bravery has resulted in the world witnessing a more stable Middle East today.


His murder, along with the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, another great hero from the land of Karbala who resisted against occupation of his sacred country by ISIS terrorists as well as American aggression, is the most brazen indication to date that America seeks a direct war with the axis of Resistance in the region. AFOSA unreservedly condemns this act of aggression by the US government.


The immediate response of the Prime Minister of New Zealand in indicating that it will not be part of such a war is noteworthy and we call on the freedom loving nations of the world to influence their governments to take a similar stance.


AFOSA extends its sincere condolences to Imam Mahdi (a.s), Our Leader Grand Ayatullah Khamenei, all Maraji (Grand Spiritual authorities), the family of the martyrs and the Iranian & Iraqi nations and all freedom loving nations of the world.


وَلَمَّا بَرَزُوا لِجَالُوتَ وَجُنُودِهِ قَالُوا رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ


So when they marched out for [encounter with] Goliath and his troops, they said, ‘Our Lord, pour patience upon us, make our feet steady, and assist us against the faithless lot.’


(Holy Quran Surah Baqara Verse 250)


وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ


"And soon the unjust will know to what final place of turning (hell) they shall turn back"


(Holy Quran - Surah Shu'araa Verse 227)
