The revered source of emulation described the Arba’in pilgrimage as a movement which ‎paves the groundwork for the forces of Imam al-Mahdi and emphasized the need for a ‎comprehensive investment to advance this million-man movement.‎

RNA – During a meeting with the commanders of the Air Force of the Islamic Republic ‎of Iran who will be stationed on the border between Mehran and along the road ‎between Najaf and Karbala during the upcoming Arba’in pilgrimage, Ayatollah ‎Mohammad-Ali Alavi-Gorgani said, “I would like to convey this issue with knowledge ‎and awareness that the Air Force is one of the successful forces of the country and that ‎religious and purified brethren are working in this force.”‎
‎ ‎
The revered source of emulation expressed satisfaction with the valuable services of the ‎various jihadi forces to the pilgrims of Imam al-Husayn during the Arba’in pilgrimage, ‎and said, “It’s a fortunate that between the armed forces and the IRGC, there are a ‎number of talented individuals who work for the promotion of religion [Islam] and the ‎denomination [Shi’ism]. The forces of the country and the armed forces are serving the ‎pilgrims and those mourning for Imam al-Husayn during the Arba’in pilgrimage and are ‎working for Imam al-Husayn, both with recognition and in anonymity”‎

Ayatollah Alavi-Gorgani considered this movement as laying the groundwork for the ‎reappearance of the saviour [Imam al-Mahdi] and said, “The narrations say that the ‎basis of the issue of Imam al-Husayn and actions done for his sake must lead to the ‎reappearance of the Imam of the Time. For this reason, it’s worthwhile to invest ‎whatever we can in the Arba’in pilgrimage.”‎

His Eminence said, “In the world today, the movement of Imam al-Husayn has a great ‎impact and you can see that the presence of millions of people during these days have ‎surprised the world because the presence of these people isn’t for fun but rather for ‎rejection of oppression. It’s no joke and it’s never possible to gather so many people ‎for the sake of one average individual in the world.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Alavi-Gorgani stated that the Arba’in pilgrimage is considered the best factor ‎to accompany Imam al-Mahdi and said, “We hope that this movement will flourish year ‎after year and that the sweeter and more pleasant reports of this movement will reach ‎the ears of the people of the world and one day the companions of Imam al-Mahdi will ‎be prepared on this path.”‎
