We offer our deepest congratulations to The Master of This Time Imam Al-Houjja Al-Mahdi (May God hasten his honorable appearance), the Authority of the Muslims during the absence of Imam Al-Mahdi (May God hasten his honorable appearance), the beginning of Shaaban month, month of the messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his household), and the anniversary of the birth of the three imams, Imam Hussein (A.S.) in the 3rd of Shaaban, 4th of it the birth of Aba Al-Fadel Al-Abbas and in the Fifth of it, the birth of Imam Zein Al-Abbedeen (A.S.).
One of the blessings of the departed Imam, Imam Khomeini (May his secret be sacred), is naming the day of Imam Hussein's birth which falls on the 3rd of sha'aban month, as the day of guard; it is the day of the strugglers who are organized in their struggle work through which they guard the Islam and Muslims' countries, the same as the great struggler Imam Ali (A.S.) who guarded the Islam by his blood.
The departed Imam wanted to remind us on the day of Imam Hussein's birth with struggle which is considered as the pillar of religion, and the most honorable one after Islam; and a gate of the heaven's gates as the Commander of the Faithful (A.S.) informed us about.
Hence, if struggle for the sake of Allah is as such, then no wonder that the end of the ones who quit it is: ignominy, poor, being eradicated in his religion, and he who die without being a struggler or even to let struggle come to his mind, then he will die as an hypocrite, as was mentioned by the Seal of the prophets (peace be upon him and his household). Besides, naming the day of the birth of the grandson martyr as the day of guard reminds us with the value of the Islam's guard and the garrisoned of the Muslim's fortified borderlines cities.
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his household) said about this: "Guarding a night for the sake of Allah is better from praying 1000 night and fasting 1000 day". He (PBUH) adds saying about the reward of garrisoning the borders the following:
- Garrisoning a night for the sake of Allah, is better from any thing else in the world.
- The prayer of the garrisoned equates 500 prayers.
- When the person dies, all his acts are terminated except the acts of the one who garrison for the sake of Allah, in which it continues and he keeps on gaining its rewards till the day of resurrection.
In addition, the blessings of the departed imam Khomeini (May his secret be sacred) is naming the 4th day of Sha'aban month which is the day of the birth of Abo Al-Fadel Al-Abbas as the "Wounded Day"; he is Karbalaa wounded, he is the ransoming of Imam Mahdi (May God hasten his honorable appearance). It is mentioned in the visit of the sacred region the following: "Peace be on you, Abo al-Fadel Al-Abbas, the son of the Commander of the faithful, the condoler of his brother, the redeemer to him, the preventive, the courier to him with the water, he whose hands are severed."
In fact, naming the day of Al-Abbas birth as the "Wounded Day", let us think deeply and remind us with Prophet Mohammad's hadith: "He who meets God without any effect of struggle, he will meet God having a notch".
Besides, this will let us be loyal with the wounded people in the resistance about whom Imam Khomeini (May his secret be sacred) stated: "God made them happy as well as their nation in front of God Almighty".
On the 5th of sha'aban month, the birth of Imam Al-Sajjad (A.S.) falls on, and the departed Imam (May his secret be sacred) blessed this day by naming it as the "Day of the Internee", who is the struggler wounded internee. He changed the arrest to a power that pushed the Islam's journey ahead from which our internees were taught from. May God Almighty reward those who were liberated and liberates those who are still in the prisons; He responds the needs of the ones who ask Him.
Eventually, all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.
