Hujjat al-Islam al-‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Karbala’i‎ stressed that worshipping this world and one’s sensual desires ‎lead to the gradual distancing of man from religion and Imam al-Husayn.‎

Accoding to correspondent of Rasa News Agency in Najaf, Hujjat al-Islam Abdul-Mahdi al-‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Karbala’i ‎in his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in the ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Iraqi holy city of Karbala’s Holy Shrine of Imam al-Husayn,  ‎said, “The commemoration of Ashura must be in accordance with what Imam al-‎‎Husayn willed and be taken in the course of reform so that we see the effects of the ‎‎movement of the Master of the Martyrs [Imam al-Husayn] through this means.”‎

The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani in Karbala added, “In the coming ‎days we will see the beginning of the month of Muharram. During these days, the greatest ‎human tragedy in history is commemorated. During such days, the lives of the saints were ‎sacrificed to protect the principles of mankind such as justice, freedom, dignity, the ‎protection of religion, innate nature and faith.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam al-‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Karbala’i stated, “The accumulation of sins, the worship of this ‎world and ‎sensual desires lead to the gradual distancing of man from religion, values ‎and Imam al-‎Husayn. By adhering to the principles of the Master of the Martyrs we can protect the ‎effects of the movement of Imam al-Husayn on ourselves and change ‎our lives for the ‎better as expected by the Purified Imams.‎”‎
