The son of Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad-Sa’id al-Hakim considered the uprising of Hadhrat ‎Zayd ibn Ali as an extension of the movement of Imam al-Husayn in many matters and ‎goals.‎

RNA – According to Rasa News Agency’s correspondent in Najaf, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid ‎Izzuddin al-Hakim, the son of the Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad-Sa’id al-Hakim, delivered a ‎speech at the “Zayd ibn Ali: Halif al-Quran” [Ally of the Quran] Conference held in the Holy ‎Shrine of Hadhrat Zayd al-Shahid in the Iraqi city of al-Hillah and said, “The uprising of ‎Hadhrat Zayd ibn Ali was an extension of his grandfather’s movement, Imam al-Husayn, and ‎shared many issues and goals, and was related to the Ahl al-Bayt and the Shi’ahs.” ‎

Hadhrat Zayd ibn Ali [695-740 CE] was the son of Imam Ali ibn al-Husayn, and the great-‎grandson of Imam Ali. He led an unsuccessful revolt against the Umayyad Caliphate, in which ‎he died.‎

His Eminence called the Iraqi people the flag bearers of Shi’ism, and stated, “Today, the ‎Iraqi people are the harbingers of the two movements – the Husayni and Zaydi movements ‎‎– which is actually a path and a goal. The Shi’ahs engage many activities in Muharram and ‎Arba’in to serve the Ahl al-Bayt and pilgrims and don’t hesitate to try to revive the religious ‎rituals.”‎

Coinciding with the month of Muharram, the eighth annual “Zayd ibn Ali: Halif al-Quran” ‎Conference was held with the participation of representatives of holy shrines, the scholars of ‎the Islamic Seminaries, intellectuals and thinkers in the city of al-Hillah, Iraq, with the slogan ‎‎“Fathers of the Revolution: From the Martyr to the Grandchildren.”‎
‎ ‎
Speaking at the conference, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Ala Aale-Yahya al-Musawi, the custodian ‎of the Holy Shrine of Hadhrat Zayd al-Shahid, said, “Hadhrat Zayd inherited the traits of his ‎predecessors and took steps on the path of social reform and he sought to exalt the words ‎of God. The uprising of Hadhrat Zayd al-Shahid was an extension of the uprising of his great-‎grandfather, Imam al-Husayn.”‎

His Eminence added, “It’s narrated in a hadith that the Prophet Muhammad said to [his ‎grandson Imam al-Husayn]: ‘From your progeny there will be a man by the name of Zayd, ‎who along with his supporters, will bypass many front rank fellows of Paradise on the Day ‎of Resurrection. They all will enter Paradise without scrutiny.’”‎

It is noteworthy that Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Izzuddin al-Hakim visited the exhibition of ‎Hadhrat Zayd on the sidelines of the conference.‎
