A note from Vahid Moltaji on the slogan of Muharram:
What is the sword dance?
That is the call of zealous: Sword falls down and rises in war; how beautiful is the sword dance; join now to go
Sword dance has emerged from coping with weakness and insouciance toward goals and religious values...
Scrolling up and down the sword in war with extremes in religion create melee, which embrace it zealous who love to meet God.
Victory is the result of sword dance, regardless of the outcome of the war.
one of two good sequel.if you win apparently, a divine victory in doing duty of jihad has been made and if you die in the way of Allah, a high deliverance has been made and you visit God in a fine and beautiful mood.
Sword dance comes from zeal
People who recognize their duty among all sloth and incuriosity with open eyes in any time and who are sensitive to whatever happening around in the law of God.
Zealous are sensitive people.
Sensitive to what is happening in their family, to what is happening in their neighbor, place of work or education, in the society and at the end in the world.
They suffer even if an anklet stolen from a non-Muslim woman in other lands.
zealous weapon in sword dance battlefield is whatever that can recognize enemy's influence on youth thoughts and heart and help them to find correct way with their plans, bravery and skills. And this way is a fiery arrow on the enemies of God.
As a result, "we are zealous" means: our eyes are open.
We observe today's Jihad which is actually cultural jihad and as a soft war officer, defend from intellectual and physical privacy of Ahl al-Bayt by knowing skills and techniques.
Two groups have nothing to do with sword dance!
Those whose religions are in their appearance: who think that every dance, means dancing in the bar and are completely alien with dance of death which was achieved by Hossein Hamadani a few days ago . These, have problem with sword too, because they just have seen it in the hand of ...... and have forgot that Islam has been flourished by Amir Al-Momenin's sword. If one day see Quran over a spear, they may verdict not to use it in such a situation too!
Those who believe in appearance of the religion: this group hide their religion on the back room of their houses and choose respect between diplomacy of ardor, bravery and respect by being silent in the face of every yelling and bullying and deviation.
Heart which is not influenced by faith, is their main problem.
That is the call of zealous: Sword falls down and rises in war; how beautiful is the sword dance; join now to go.
Greeting on God's great servants
On the verge of Muharram 1437
Footnote: following the way of leadership needs perception and insight at the first step. When there is no insight, everyone is suffering! Knowing the meaning of insight needs another chance...
But generally insight means timely understanding of religion and society and words of the leader and also artistic and clever practice to it which we observe it rarely nowadays....
