His Eminence Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Mohamed Saeed al-Hakeem advised those who serve at the mawakib of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him), that they be strong armour for the genuine religion of Islam, for the true path of the Ahlullbait (peace be upon them), and for the Islamic seminary (Howzah), by attaching themselves to the teachings from Imam Hussain’s (peace be upon him) life, and informing people of his great cause for which he sacrificed himself alongside his family and companions, and by engraining this in the future generations.

His Eminence gave this advice to a delegation of managers of the mawakib of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him), in Najaf on Wednesday 28 Dhil-Hijjah 1438 (20 September 2017).

His Eminence also called them to understand that their creed has become greater and elevated, and the nations of the world respect it due to the commitment the believers have in abiding by the laws of God and avoiding from the sins, and safeguarding the teachings of the Infallibles (peace be upon them) and following their footsteps.

His Eminence also invited the managers of the mawakib of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him.) and the mourners of Imam Hussain (Peace be upon him) to adhere to the expressions of grief over of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them).

The meeting was concluded by praying for their success and divine support, and asked them to spread the spirit of harmony and love and unity amongst each other, appreciating their efforts and the time they have spent in serving the pilgrims to the holy shrines, as well as the giving of support to the peace forces and the popular mobilisation which has reached the north and west of Iraq.
