In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Rouh Allah's Call
The epic of Ashura is a magnificent page that can't be imagined. Al-Imam Al-Sajjad (A.S.) is the son of its incident, the holder of its mission and the struggler in the injustice palaces, in which Al-Sayyeda Zeinab (A.S.) faced and she was considered the prisoner of the stronger sultans in her time.

The Result of Karbalaa, the Islamic Resistance
Dear people, who study the Islamic resistance in Lebanon, through your studies you are looking for this resistance, looking for it weakness and strengths elements, I tell you in front of all people: the power of this resistance, its essence, its identity, what it is, its spirit, the strugglers breath, the martyr's passion and the aim of its martyrs; Lies in the mystery of identity, spirit, heart, mind, blood and groans of Al-Hussein (A.S.) the son of Al-Zahraa (A.S.), so if you are able to discover this secret and this identity then you will understand the Islamic resistance in Lebanon.
So the main issue of Karbalaa is that Ashura remained immortal over times and ages, because of Al-Hussein's blood it made the leader, the witness and the martyr.
Ashura will remain immortal as long as Al-Hussein's sons carrying the Husseini flags over the guns and the Hussein's position over the souls and hearts and they grant their souls cheaply in order to restore the first Muslims Kebla, and the immortal symbol no matter what the eternal forces of injustice, oppression and tyranny tried to hide or erase by darkness and injustice. God promised his right promise to inherit his good worshiper the earth.

The Etiquette of Ashura
The full moon of Muharam appears holding in its dark light the guidance letter, and strengthens the guardianship and the approach of jihad and martyrdom. Ashura is a time of jihad and worship, the believer should follow the pure infallibles. Also benefit from their ethics and rituals that God likes, we mention some of:
Presence in the Husseini's gatherings: about Al-Imam Al-Sadek (A.S.): "Oh Fadel you sit and talk? He said, yes, done for your sake. He (peace be upon him and his household) then said: "I like those gatherings, so revive our matter, God blessed who revives our matter…"
Crying Al-Imam Al-Hussein (A.S.): Imam Al-Rida (A.S.) uttered: "For such as Hussein criers should cry, crying on him degrades the big sins".
Al-Imam Al-Hussein's (A.S..) visit: About Al-Imam Al-Baker (A.S..), "Who visited Al-Hussein the son of Ali (A.S..) on the tenth day of Muharam and stayed crying, he will meet God with a reward of two thousand pilgrimage, two thousand minor pilgrimage and two thousand invasion; as a reward to whom has performed pilgrimage, minor pilgrimage and invaded with the prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his household) and all Imams". Al-Imam Al-Baker (A.S.) has said: "And then to mourn and cry Hussein, and to order in his home who doesn't fear him to cry on… to console each other in Al-Hussein's (A.S.) affliction. It was asked: "How do we console each other?" He (A.S..) said: "you say, may God glorify our honorarium to what happened to Al-Imam Al-Hussein (A.S..) and make us from the askers of his revenge with Al-Imam Al-Mahdi (May God hasten his appearance)".
The Redolence of Guardianship
Muharam was the month that rose up justice to face injustice, through it right confront wrong, demonstrating that the right is the victorious over the oppression throughout history.

The Moral Dimension in Al-Imam Al-Hussein's Personality
Al-Imam Al-Khamenei says about the moral dimension in Al-Hussein's personality: after the jihad, martyrdom and hurricanes which Al-Imam (A.S.) caused throughout history –which will remain –with all the blessings that he has- resounding over the lifetime. So if we look to Ashuraa's incident and to Karbalaa's events, although it is a battlefield of swords and killing, we see Al-Imam Al-Hussein (A.S.) speaking and dealing with God by love, satisfaction and gratitude; in the last battle he put his holy cheek on Karbalaa's blazing soil and said: "my God, satisfied by your province and recognized for your matter." As well as when he left Mecca he (A.S.) said: "whoever is granting his soul for us, and insisting on meeting Allah, he can leave away with us." We see in Karbalaa's case the face of gratitude, supplication and prayer. Leaving away was linked to beg, intimacy and hope to meet God, and through that the rush of the famous moral began in Arafah supplication till it ended up to the last moment to murder and martyrdom where he (A.S.) said: "Satisfied by your province."
This means that Ashuraa's Battle is considered a customary incident, although it is blended with fighting, killing, martyrdom and epic – the epic of Ashura is a magnificent page that can't be imagined - but if you look deeply into the fabric of this epic, you would have seen the signs of gratitude, moral, supplication and the essence of Arafah's supplication.
Al-Imam Al-Sajjad's Jihad
Al-Imam Zein Al-Abedin participated in the Jihad's journey to Karbalaa, where he fought in Ashuraa's day and hit by wounds and he was carried to the camp and God's saved him despite of the harsh conditions in order not the land subsidies with its people, in the historical text comes, "that day Ali the son of Al-Hussein was sick with thicker wounds and some fighters attended to kill him but God saved him."
In captivity: Al-Imam Al-Sajjad continued through his jihad's journey representing the peak of tournament and the revolutionary movement, where he went on facing the waves of terror that was published by the actions and the regime of Al-Omawy actions and bugles by courage and his Husseini's pride. Al-Khamenei (May God keep him) says about this tournament and role: "Al-Imam Al-Sajjad was drawing a great heroic epic through his words and his actions during the period of captivity."
In the city: when Al-Imam Al-Sajjad (A.S.) saw that the nation has lost a lot of its religion and went on living on the physical pleasure, he wanted to re-establish man's relationship with his lord and that what was manifested in (Al-Sahifa Al-Sajjadiya), Al-Imam Al-Khamenei said: "the greatest roles that Al-Imam (A.S.) exerted was that he wrote the genuine thought of Islam, unification and prophecy and the fact of the human moral status and its association with God and the most important role for (Al-Sahifa Al-Sajjadiya)in this domain.
In this way Al-Imam (A.S.) wanted to return the human relationship to its instinct and God's supremacy in it, so was the treatise of the rights (Risalat Al-Hokouk).
A Path for Freedom
In the prison cell number nine, Rani was lying quietly, he waked up on Hussam's sound with his hand was shaking strongly and saying:
- Wake up… wake up… it seems there is an uprising inside the jail, hear the sounds.
- God forgives you, you cut off the most wonderful dream I have ever seen for the gospel of freedom.
- Now is the time for your dreams!!! Come on, no one knows what is going on outside except God, I hear strong sounds pounding on the prison cells' doors.
Moments of silence overshadowed on the place, Rani and his friend looked at each other without saying any word, fear and anxiety appeared in the tones of the prisoners who were wondering about the secret voices outside, then Rani reassured them approaching the prison and said: "it is the promise, Hamza's (A.S.) promise, the promise is ratified, freedom is coming, don't worry, the sounds you are hearing are the people's noises and not the soldiers sounds, be prepared we will come out of the prison .
Stunned appeared and was clear on the faces of everyone, as if they didn't believe the news, Rani looked at Hussam and said: "the dream which you cut off promises that we will be free, if God wills, I saw Hamza (A.S.) visiting the prisoners and locks of the prisons were broken, he went on taking out the prison cells one by one.
Rani opened the door of the prison by his hand after someone of Al-Kheyam's people has broken the lock during the days of liberation where as the agents escaped...
Rani stood up in the courtyard of the detainee screaming loudly: "this is God's promise, God's promise is believed."
