Imam Hussein’s (AS) movement

The above was stated by Ayatollah Alamolhoda, the Leader's representative in Khorasan Razavi Province during a sermon at Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine.

Hawzah News Agency - (Mashhad - Iran) - Imam Hussein’s (AS) movement in Karbala was an act of resistance against reactionary values, and also an act of bidding for good and forbidding from bad.

The above was stated by Ayatollah Alamolhoda, the Leader's representative in Khorasan Razavi Province during a sermon at Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine. “The best loyalty and attention one can have toward Imam Hussein’s (AS) movement is to practice mourning ceremonies with a full awareness over Imam’s (AS) right”.

He added: “The main goal behind holding mourning ceremonies of these kinds is not a mere review of the history of Infallible Imams’ (AS) life span or the oppression imposed on them; rather, it is to know about their practical conduct in cultural, political, and social arenas so that we can understand and conduct our duty better”.

Continuing with his remarks, Alamolhoda divided revolutions into two general categories of "explosive" and "volitional", describing the first form as happening when pressure, oppression and crime have become highly prevalent in the society. "The latter, however, happens when people seek consolidation of a political, intellectual, economic and cultural system”.

The lecturer opined that the main criterion of the second category of revolutions is to empower wills and goals rather than a regime change. 

He went on to say: “The nature of Imam Hussein’s (AS) movement was volitional and that is the very common aspect of his movement with the Iranian people’s Islamic Revolution which took place in 1979. Like Imam Hussein (AS), Imam Khomeini (RA) was after establishing a new system of thought and realizing great goals”.

“Following Imam Hussein's (AS) path, Imam Khomeini (RA) did his best to revive religious values to pave the way for reappearance of Imam Mahdi (AS)”, he further noted.
