Taliban security forces incapable curbing terrorist attacks: Afghanistan AhlulBayt (a.s.) Assembly

In a statement, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) Lovers Assembly of Afghanistan denounced the terrorist suicide attack on a Shiite Mosque in the southern city of Kandahar.

In the statement, the Assembly noted, “Recent events have shown that Taliban security forces are incapable of curbing terrorist attacks. Therefore, it is necessary to ask for help from the people, especially those in charge of holding these ceremonies.”

“There are specific motivations behind the terrorist groups’ attacks on Shiite religious ceremonies,” added the AhlulBayt (a.s.) Assembly of Afghanistan.

This statement is as follows:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

وَمَا لَكُمْ لَا تُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ وَالْوِلْدَانِ الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَٰذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَا وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ وَلِيًّا وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ نَصِيرًا (قرآن، سورة النساء، آیة: 75)

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)? - Men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee one who will protect; and raise for us from Thee one who will help”!” (Quran, Surah: An-Nisa, Verse: 75)

We offer our condolences to the families and relatives of the martyrs, the faithful people of Kandahar, the people of Afghanistan and the Muslim Ummah, on today’s tragic, horrific, and shocking suicide attack at the Fatemieh Mosque in Kandahar which targeted worshippers of Friday prayers and God’s servants.

Since the new system came to power, there have been several terrorist attacks in different parts of the country, challenging the security measures of security forces.

Today’s terrorist attack on the Fatemieh Mosque in Kandahar, in which more than 100 people were martyred and wounded, is the second suicide attack on Shiite worshipers and reflects the specific direction of the new insecurities.

Following last week’s suicide attack on the Sayed Abad Grand Mosque in Kunduz, which killed and injured hundreds of worshipers, (Taliban’s) government security forces promised to take serious measures to ensure the safety of citizens, curb such attacks, and try the perpetrators of the attack a Sharia court. But just a week later, we saw a similar terrorist attack in Kandahar today.

Recent events have shown that Taliban security forces are incapable of curbing terrorist attacks. Therefore, it is necessary to ask for help from the people, especially those in charge of holding these ceremonies. The experience of cooperation and joint measures of the security forces and the board of trustees of the mosques and Tekias (Tekie a place for worshipping) has been a successful experience in securing these centers, and it is necessary to use that experience.

Noting that there are specific motivations behind terrorist groups’ attacks on Shiite religious ceremonies, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) Lovers Assembly calls on the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the International Community, and charity organizations, to protect these centers and take care of the families of those injured in the incidents.

Ayatollah Ramazani denounced terrorist attack on Shiite Mosque in Afghanistan

In a message, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, denounced the terrorist attack on the Shiite Mosque in Kunduz, Afghanistan, and called for the perpetrators of this heinous crime to be identified and punished.

The message of the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran 2:156)

The terrorist explosion by ISIS criminals in the Sayed Abad Mosque in Kunduz, which martyred and injured more than 200 Shiite worshipers, caused great sorrow and grief to Muslims, especially Shiites.

The attack was the biggest terrorist crime since the Taliban came to power. While, before coming to power, the Taliban had promised the Afghan people and the international community to provide security and counter-ISIS and terrorist attacks.

Therefore, it is necessary for the officials of Afghanistan to seriously identify and deal with the perpetrators of this barbaric crime and prevent the recurrence of such atrocities.

It is essential for all right-seekers, humanitarians, and Shiites around the world to denounce this heinous crime.

It is also necessary for all human rights and counter-terrorism organizations around the world to respond to such incidents. It is also imperative for all intelligence and security agencies to make more concerted efforts internationally to prevent these horrific and tragic events.

Immediate action is also needed for relief agencies inside Afghanistan and around the world to provide services to the victims - especially given the current situation of the country.

The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly strongly condemns this terrorist act, and while offering condolences and sympathy to the families of the martyrs and the people of Afghanistan, we pray for the martyrs of the attack divine mercy and paradise, and patience for the families and acquaintances of the martyrs, and immediate and complete healing for the injured.

Ayatollah Ramazani expressed his condolences on demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli

In a message, Ayatollah Ramazani, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World, Assembly, expressed his condolences on demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli.

 Ayatollah Ramazani’s message is as follows:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

 «يَرْفَعِ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ دَرَجَات» (المجادلة: 58)

 

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“Allah will exalt those who believe among you, and those who have knowledge, to high ranks.” (Al-Mujadila: 58)

The demise of the divine scholar and sage, and Polymath Allameh, Ayatollah Hassan Hassanzadeh Amoli, saddened the lovers, seekers of knowledge, wisdom, mysticism and Islamic spirituality.

A unique and comprehensive figure in Rational Sciences and Narrative Knowledges, he was proficient in Tafsir, Fiqh, Osul, hadith, Arabic vocabulary, literature, philosophy, theology, ethics, mysticism, medicine, mathematics, astronomy, numbers and horizons, Zij, Jafr, and Occult. He was fluent in several living languages, wrote in them, and created meaningful poetry and prose.

The dominance of that pious scholar over the now-abandoned sciences was such that no other figure so comprehensive in these disciplines could be found today, all over the world.

In addition, what made the late Allameh Hassanzadeh more distinctive was the “combination of knowledge and practice”. This feature attracted young clerics and students, who seek pure knowledge, to that mystic. It is very unlikely that seminaries will soon be able to train such a comprehensive and unique figure.

Of course, his numerous and diverse works in various sciences are a precious treasure that every student and thinker can use.

His support for the late Imam Khomeini (r.a.) and the Islamic Revolution, his presence on the fronts during the years of holy defense as a simple volunteer soldier, and his constant support for Velayat-e-Faqih and the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, were manifestations of “the association of beneficial and luminous knowledge with the Akbar and Asghar Jihad (battle against the internal enemy, that is, carnal interests, and battle against the external enemy)”.

I offer my condolences on this irreparable loss to Imam Mahdi (a.s.), as well as the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the grand sources of emulation, seminaries and universities, those interested in mysticism and divine knowledges, the martyr-nurturing people of Amol and all students, enthusiasts and relatives, his acquaintances of and relatives, especially virtuous and learned children of the that blessed deceased.

That great scholar was the lover of the Infallibles (a.s.) in the true sense of the word. An example of this love and devotion has been manifested in his book “Fass Al-Fatemi” dedicated to the great position of Lady Fatemeh Zahra (a.s.).

Therefore, in the Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (a.s.), I ask God Almighty to reunite the holy soul of the late Allameh Hassanzadeh with the Infallible AhlulBayt (a.s.) - especially Sayed Al-Shuhada (a.s.) - and to provide patience for his family and relatives.

Saturday, 25 September 2021

In a message, AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, the office of India, expressed its condolences on the demise of Allameh Hassanzadeh Amoli

The message is as follows:

The demise of the scholar who acted according to knowledge, perfect mystic, pious faqih, honorable expert in hadith, divine sage, Quranic faqih, great ascetic, wise philosopher, flood of wisdom and virtue, humble ascetic, prominent Rijal expert, Ayatollah Hassan Zadeh Amoli saddened the clerics and Islamic seminaries.

This prominent figure, mystic and seeker of the divine path, propagated pure Muhammadan Islam for many years and trained students. In the age of scarcity of Marefat role models, and in the age of the explosion of deception, lies and darkness, the loss of this wise faqih is irreparable damage.

He devoted many years to scientific and cultural services and left many works. He loved the clergies and respected them all. He was truly a man of knowledge and practice, and his words were appealing to the hearts.

During his honorable life, in addition to teaching and research, Ayatollah Hassanzadeh Amoli (r.a.) was never unaware of the issues and conditions of society.

After years of hard and compassionate work for Islam and the prosperous school of Shiism, finally, this mystic faqih, and pious mujtahid, passed away.

On the demise of this divine Alem and pious faqih, we offer our condolences to Imam Mahdi (a.s.), and his rightful successor, Grand Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei, and other sources of emulation, Islamic seminaries, Ulama, and his enthusiasts, especially his honorable family, and pray to God for his mercy upon the deceased.

The irreparable loss of the pious scholar and great thinker, Allameh Ibn Ali Waez, the esteemed head of the “Fahmi Islam” Institute in Delhi and honorable president of the “Baqer al-Uloom” Islamic Seminary, caused great sorrow and regret.

That esteemed scholar spent his blessed life studying, then preaching, guiding, teaching, authoring, as well as establishing and managing knowledge and seminary centers.

Now, after his demise and in the presence of God, these cases are suitable luggage for the pure soul of the deceased: promoting the rules and propagation of the teachings of the Quran and AhlulBayt (a.s.) for many years, establishing and managing religious and service centers, training scholars, authoring and translating numerous books and defending the Islamic Republic of Iran and Imam Khomeini against the arrogant world.

I offer my condolences on this irreparable loss to Imam Mahdi (a.s.), Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Grand Sources of Emulation, the Shiites of the Indian subcontinent who are Velayat followers, and his companions, students, disciples, and relatives, especially his honorable sons who are clerics.

I ask from God the Almighty for the exaltation and reunion with his Imam, Hazrat Aba Abdillah (a.s.), for the deceased, and for all of his family members and relatives, I ask for great patience.
