Tune your hearts for jihad

Hojataleslam Shahab Moradi:

Tune your hearts for jihad

The way of Karbala and Ashoura are extending

For starter Hojataleslam Shahab Moradi stated: However we shed tears for, we are honored and proud. Our tears is way different from people of Kufe's tears, we are proud of ourselves not ashamed; our tears is out of proudness, because the way of Karbala and Ashoura are extending, war and assistance are extending, therefore we all should assist Imam Hossein (as).

Imam Ali's (as), the Commander of the Faithful (Amir-almumenin), has written a letter of order to Malek Ashtar (governor of Egypt) and yearn for several matters and he stated that one should assist Allah by their hands in jihad. If one could not, they should assist with their tongues. If even it was not possible, one should assist Allah by their hearts in jihad instead.

"Strive with your hands for the cause of Allah" means striving with sword (weapon), wealth and every other way you are able of; even by equipping by armor, delivering a message from a jihadi to his family, building fortification or digging trench. Do whatever you can do in action form.

 

Bring one hundred thousand Hassanah to your deeds

The preacher of Ashouraeian recitation added that: whenever you drink water, you should remember of the thirst of Imam Hossein (as). If one drinks water and says "May Allah curse the assassin of Imam Hossein (as)", Allah (swt) will brings a hundred thousand Hassanah to your deeds and also removes one hundred thousand sins from your deeds. It is also like one releasing a hundred thousand slaves for the cause of Allah and that person will come to Resurrection Day with a chilled spirit and not thirsty at all.

This description is from Imam Sadeq (as) in the Kamel Al-ziarat book; a teller said, Imam Sadeq (as) asked for water, the teller brought water to Imam and stated after drinking water as suddenly Imam was into tears: May Allah curse the assassin of Imam Hossein (as).

 

Faith has roots in the heart

The first rank of assistance of Allah (swt) by the heart is to believe in him. This faith has roots in the heart; the following ranks are not only the love of Allah (swt) and Allah's (swt) messengers and guides, but also the hatred Allah's (swt) enemies. Faith is an action solely, the highest ranked good; the core requirement of good. The opposite point of faith is wrong and heresy, in other words the opposite point of faith is denial and negation; like someone who denies Allah (swt) stubbornly, and believes that righteousness in wrong. However doubt or unawareness is not against the faith. Be aware that a hypocrite conceals his denial; take good care of your heart to prevent denial.

 

 

Concede the righteousness

The first rank of assistance of Allah (swt) by the heart is to believe in him. This faith assists the heart itself. The second is, not to be in denial. In fact the second one is latent in first one. The third rank of assistance of Allah (swt) by the heart is to concede the righteousness. Whenever you hear the azan, repeat it to yourself as an act of politeness. Whenever you hear "come to pray/success", you should assume that it is exclusively calling you and you should utter "lahawla wa la quvvata elabillah(All helps and powers are from Allah(swt)) ". It means you conceded it with your heart. It is also the same whenever in salah(prayer) you say "Bihawlillaahi wa quvvatihi aqoomu wa aq’ud (With God’s help and through His power I stand and sit)". So, what is the point here? By saying this sentence and by its interpretation, it will assure your health.

 

To concede the righteousness is one of the ranks of assistance of Allah (swt)

Whenever you hear the name of Allah (swt) you should utter "jalla asma subhanahu wa ta'ala(May His names be glorified, May He be praised and exalted)" because he is the Lord, the greatest one. He is your Master and Lord. Whenever you hear the name of the holy Prophet you should utter" ṣalla llahu ʿalayhi wa-aaleh(peace of Allah be upon him and his Household)"; Whenever you hear the name of the Ahle-bayt (the Household) you should utter" Salamu allah alayh/ alayhi alssalm…(Peace of Allah be upon him)". This kind of reaction is conceding the righteousness by itself, which is also one of the ranks of general assistance of Allah (swt).

 

Do not remain reticent

Allah (swt) likes your conceding and it is essential for faith. Do not remain silent; with your hearts and souls concede that Maroof (good) is Maroof. Whoever says: shall wine stores reopen again or shall hijab not be obligatory and everyone do whatever he likes to do, this person has accepted Maroof as Munkar(evil); and Munkar as Maroof. This person's faith has inverted. Also remember that the jihad of heart is conceding Imam Ali's (as) righteousness; the holy prophet testifies that Imam Ali (as) is either righteous and the axis of righteousness; Imam Hossein (as) is righteous as well. This is true every time you recite Ziarat Ashura of Imam Hossein (as), even if you need to prevaricate against your enemies, you send peace upon Imam Hossein (as) and curse to Yazid; everything should be tuned by jihad.
