Arbaeen gathering under the shadow of Wilayat
It should be present in our mind that all those who are visiting Arbaeen for pilgrimage are not necessarily Ideological, revolutionary and visionary Shias. In fact most of them are passionate believers in Shiism and in this year’s gathering a big number of Ahle Sunnah from various parts of the world have come as caravans and groups. There are various groups of people participating and majority as per the quality standards are just simple sentimental believers. But those who are giving direction to this congregation and has the reigns in their hand is the visionary group and revolutionaries and this is developing a big hope. As we know there are many Azadari programs that take place across the globe but those are not under the umbrella of scholars and Marjaiyat. Like in Pakistan there is Azadari in big way with full passion and sentiments but not under the umbrella of scholars and Marajae; it is some other group of traders, drug addicts, professionals on pulpits who want to cash Karbala are controlling this Azadari. But the gathering of Arbaeen is under the umbrella of Wilayat even though on the outward that is not seen and even the Supreme Leader (d.a) has said that his pictures should not be put up in this gathering under some wisdom. But whatever is happening with the grace of Allah is happening under Wilayat. This is the true act and any movement, mission, activity can only be termed as being correct if that is under the shadow of Wilayat. If it is not under Wilayat then there is no guarantee in which direction this movement will go and who will take what benefits from it. This Arbaeen congregation is under the shadow of Wilayat and it is due to the stratagem of Wilayat the ISIS have been eradicated in Syria and Iraq. Who has cut the roots of the enemies of Shias and Islam? It is not done by those who only reap materialistic and spiritual benefits from the sentiments and passions of people, those who make their own personality and demand respect from people; they have not uprooted ISIS. It is done through Wilayat and big sacrifices have been given for this and this would not have been happened without sacrifices. How a dreadful force like ISIS which shook governments got wiped off in front of the eyes of everyone cannot be precisely known now as these are secrets which over a period of time will get revealed. There are many secrets, codes inside this confrontation with ISIS and it is not necessary that these secrets should come out but over a period of time when it comes out people will know whose outcome it was. This global gathering of Arbaeen has become an identity for Shiite and a recognition of rising of Shia. It was not that the purpose of gathering and pinnacle of Shiite; which some people think also is to show the world that once in a year millions of Shias are gathering in one place. The thinking of hosts of Majlis, organization is this only to gather big number of persons to show off to the world how many people come to us. The purpose of this gathering was being awaited for centuries and after centuries, generations have been waiting for the system of justice to get established globally and this gathering is the beginning of that because those who were supposed to do this had abandoned themselves; were afraid, sitting in hiding and were considering themselves as weak and under state of Taqaiyya. Now those who were lost have come out with full power of appearance. This will not end because after this is the next step from which everyone is afraid. The enemies have themselves said that these people believe in Mahdaviat, reappearance of Imam (a.t.f.s), global governance of Imamat and hence they are dangerous and should be eradicated. This congregation should reach there and get connected with that movement and this standard has to go there.
During this era the situations have to change in various countries. Hence do not think that this gathering is just a simple congregation where sentimental believers visit, gain some rewards (Thawaab) and return. As I mentioned that majority of those visiting are believers who only have faith on this matter. But those who have the reigns in their hands and under whose umbrella this gathering is being done they know very well where this gathering will head towards. Hence every country is afraid on the occasion of this gathering and are victim of strange panic. They have been trying to make all possible efforts to make this event a failure or weaken it but as I said this is their stratagem and Allah has his own stratagem which dominates over all the plans of Satan.
As I said this gathering is under the banner of Wilayat but it constitutes of various faces. There is one group of caravan traders who have nothing to do with the essence of this pilgrimage. These caravan companies who take people for pilgrimage some of them visit Israel also. They have no concern as they are tourist companies and can take people anywhere. If you ask them to take you to Churches and temples they will do that as well. Similarly there are many other groups who visit for their own personal gains and they are not the ones who can change the direction of this gathering or cash this gathering for the right objectives.
