Hujjat al-Islam Farhani described the Islamic Revolution as a religious thought based on the ‎uprising of Ashura and emphasized that the enemies are afraid of the march of millions of ‎people in the Arba’in pilgrimage. ‎

RNA – Speaking at celebration of Sacred Defence Week in at Imam Sajjad Mosque in ‎Pardisan, Qom, Hujjat al-Islam Abdolkarim Farhani, the representative of the people of ‎Khuzestan province in the Assembly of Experts, referred to the great lessons of the tragedy ‎of Ashura and said, “Besides being a symbol of martyrdom, Imam al-Husayn has recorded ‎two other symbols in the history of Islam – the first is Tasu’a al-Husayn [the day night of ‎Muharram], which is the symbol of the resistance of Imam al-Husayn and his loyal ‎companions and the second symbol is Arba’in al-Husayn, which was established by Muslims ‎after the tragedy of Ashura.”‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminaries noted that the slogan of Imam Khomeyni, the founder ‎of the Islamic Revolution, is the voice of Imam al-Husayn and stated, “On the afternoon of ‎Ashura [June 3, 1963] at Qom’s Feyziyeh Seminary, Imam Khomeyni declared that the ‎scholars must come to the aid of Islam.”‎

He added, “Imam Khomeyni was arrested, exiled and was stripped of his clerical clothes but ‎his students continued on his path, which was the school of resistance.”‎

Referring to Islamic Iran’s glorious revolution in the Islamic world, Hujjat al-Islam Farhani ‎stated, “In the last 200 years, Islamic Iran stood for the first time in the world with ‎resistance and with the culture of jihad and martyrdom.” ‎

His Eminence stated that the Islamic Revolution was a thought based on the path of Imam ‎al-Husayn and said, “When Imam Khomeyni departed from us, the entire world thought that ‎the Islamic Revolution was over but the Islamic Revolution was a religious thought based on ‎the uprising of Ashura.” ‎

He referred to the resistance of Lebanon’s Hezbollah against the arrogant powers of the ‎world said, “By adhering to Wilayat al-Faqih [Guardianship of the Jurisprudent] and through ‎resistance learned from the tragedy of Ashura, Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah [the Secretary-General ‎of Hezbollah] has resisted against the enemies in such a way that the enemies were ‎incapacitated through this resistance in the region.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Farhani stated, “Today, due to the blessing of Arba’in and the resistance of ‎martyrs and soldiers of Islam, both Sunnis and Shi’ahs as well as Christians in Lebanon, are ‎committed to wilayah [guardianship] and this issue has achieved its intended objective ‎through the blood of the martyrs.”‎
‎ ‎
His Eminence said that the Arba’in pilgrimage is a symbol of Shi’ah thought and said, “Arba’in ‎al-Husayn is a symbol of Shi’ism and today the enemies are concerned with this divine ‎thought.”‎

In conclusion, he emphasized on the need to stand up to the enemies and said, “Negotiating ‎with American officials is a big mistake. Imam al-Husayn and Imam al-Sajjad have taught us ‎religious dignity and negotiating with the United States at the present time is against Islamic ‎dignity.”‎
