RAWALPINDI: The day of martyrdom of Amir-ul-Momineen Baab Madinat-ul-Ilm Fatah-e-Khyber Sher-e-Khuda Hazrat Ali Al-Murtaza (A.S.) was observed with devotion and respect all over the world, including all small cities, towns and villages. Majalis-e-Aza were held and mourning processions were taken out in which Taburrakat of Taboot, Zuljinah and Alam was also included, says a Press release.
The participation of Sunni and Shia brethren came out together during the processions in which touching scenes of love for Holy Prophet (SAAW) and Ahl-e-Bait (A.S). The Ahl-e-Sunnat organized Sabeels for the mourners while the Azadars presented pursa of Shaheed-e-Kufa Hazrat Ali Murtaza (A.S.) by through performing Seena-Zani, Zanjeer-Zani, Qama-Zani, Noha-Khwani and Matam.
The central Azadari procession was taken out under the leadership of Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih in which thousands of mourners participated.
Addressing the media representatives and delegations of mourners on the occasion, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) is the hero of every Ghazwa. There is no one who can get innumerable honours like birth in the Kaaba and martyrdom in the mosque except Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S.).
He accused the former rulers of betrayal in preparation of similar curriculum making changes in the Zikr-e-Ali (A.S.). He said falsehood and deception reign everywhere which will come to an end after the Zahoor of Farzand-e-Rasool (SAAW) and Ali (A.S.) i.e. Imam Mahdi (A.S.). He also accused the former government of registering FIRs on organizing Majalis in Chardivari and tried to create hurdles in the Shahadat-e-Ali processions.
Agha Moosavi said there is no use of holding conferences if Al-Aqsa Mosque is to be burnt like this? He said Muslims are biting Muslims. He made it clear that we have no friendship or any enmity with Imran Khan or any other politician; we are friends of people of Pakistan and Islam. The new ruling party is also following the same path by signing an agreement with the banned terrorist group. The basis of Islam Bill has no basis and has nothing to do with Islam. We are friends of every oppressed and the enemy of every oppressor even if he is a close brother.
The TNFJ chief made it clear that they will not give up their rights. He said that not allowing announcement of a Shia girl from the mosque is extreme prejudice and violation of human values are being violated. He advised the politicians not to put the interests of the country on stake for the sake of their personal and party interests. He said there is need to correct ourselves so as to talk about Islamophobia.
Agha Moosavi said that governments only give in only on carrying out agitation and by adopting extremist policies. He stressed the need of rooting out internal conspiracies first saying those who love the ‘chair’
do not even care of their own people. He said we respect Ahl-e-Bait (A.S.) and Sahaba (R.A.); the first Sahabi who was disrespected from the Mimbers was Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.).
He said expressing hatred against every blasphemy is necessary. He said giving examples of Zionist decisions is an insult to the best Qazi of Muslims Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.). He said no one would have the courage to desecrate Quran, Rasool (SAAW) and Masjid-e-Aqsa.
Stating the Fazail of Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) Agha Moosavi said that after the birth, the tongue of the Prophet (SAAW) became the first food of Hazrat Ali (A.S.) as if the Prophet gave his tongue (word) to Ali (A.S.) as soon as his tongue was born. The Prophet (SAAW) fed and taught Ali Al-Murtaza (A.S.) in a manner in which birds are fed. The Prophet (SAAW) taught each and every thing to Hazrat Ali (A.S.) that was taught to him by Allah.
After the Rasool (SAAW), Hazrat Ali is the best of all others viz knowledge, generosity and bravery. Rasool (SAAW) had state that Ali (A.S.) is the door to knowledge and wisdom and is the best judge. That is why, he added, Hazrat Omar (R.A.) had said that “I would have been killed if Ali (A.S.) was not there.”
The TNFJ chief said Ali Ibne Ali Talib (A.S.) slept on Bistar-e-Rasool (SAAW) without any fear under the shadow of enemy swords. He declared that Ali (A.S.) has same linkage with me that Raroon (A.S.) had with Musa (A.S.). The Nabi-e-Akram (SAAW) has declared Ali (A.S.) as Wasi, Wali, Wazir and Khalifah in this world and in the hereafter in the Dawat-e-Zul Ashirah. The Nabi (SAAW) had announced on Youm-e-Ghadeer that “Ali (A.S.) is the Maula of all those I’m the Maula of whom”. In this manner Ali (A.S.) is also the Maula of all Nabis (A.S.) like Rasool (SAAW) is the Maula of all Nabis (A.S.).
He said the structure of Rasool (SAAW) and Ali (A.S) was same that is why the atheists could not identify whether Rasool (SAAW) is himself on his bed or Ali (A.S.) is sleeping on it on Shab-e-Hijrat. In the Ghazwa-e-Badr half of the atheists were killed by Hazrat Ali’s (A.S.) sword. In Ghazwa-e-Khyber, Ali (A.S.) was handed over the Alam by terming him ‘Karrar’ and ‘Ghair-e-Farar’. Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) has the honour of carrying out the Tajheez-e-Takfeen of the Rasool (A.S.)
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi on this occasion announced that Jashan Nazool-e-Quran will be observed in the last Ashra of Ramazan, Youm Al-Quds Himayat-e-Mazloomin will be observed on Jumatul Widah while Youm Inhidam Jannatul Baqee will be observed on 8th Shawal. He demanded foolproof security measures for all these programmes.
Meanwhile, in Karachi, the Azadari procession was taken out from Nishtar Park which passed through Chowrangi, M.A Jinnah Road, Saddar. Azadari processions were also taken out in Lahore, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Dera Ghazi Khan, Gujrat, Kohat, Mardan, Lucky Marwat, Dera Ismail Khan, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Sukkur, Khairpur, Dadu, Hyderabad and many other cities and town. TNFJ had inducted Azadari camps during these processions to facilitate Azadaran. Mukhtar Force volunteers, Ibrahim Scouts, Ummul Baneen WF performed the voluntary services.
The central Majlis-e-Aza for women was held at Jamia Al-Murtaza G-9/4 Islamabad by Ummul Baneen WF, Sakina Generation and Girl Guides. A large number of women participated in this Majlis in which Taboot Shaheed-e-Kufa was also brought out.
