Liaison office of Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Ali Al Sistani (L.M.H.L) in London, Europe, North and South America.

The representative of the leading Marja’iyah in Europe calls for Fatiha Majalis on the souls of the martyrs of the terrorist attacks.

By His Name The Most High
They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it. (Holy Qur’an 9:32)

This year, the enemies of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) have repeated their attacks on processions commemorating the martyrdom of Abi Abdillah Al-Hussain (a.s) in Al-Ahsa (Saudi Arabia), Nigeria, Pakistan, Australia and Iraq and other places; coupled with threats against centers, Hussainyas and processions in Europe; in an effort to erase their mention through fomenting fear among the believers who go to these religious places.

We say to the enemies of Islam and humanity that the “Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.) and their commemoration is not assigned to the righteous Shias only, rather it is a divine matter promised by Allah Almighty and Exalted. The Takfiris efforts’, no matter what, will never succeed and will only strengthen our resolve and our conviction to remember Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.) in full glory.” Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that - then those are the defiantly disobedient. (holy Qur’an 24:55)

The leading Marja’iyah’s representative in Europe called for Fatiha Majalis, for the victims’ souls, in the following places: Imam Ali (a.s) Foundation in London, Al-Torath Centre in Berlin, Al-Cauther in the Hague, Al-Gheri Centre in Brussels, Al-Muntadhar Centre in Malmo (Sweden) and Hussainiatul-Zahra in Eskilstuna (Sweden), Imam Ali (a.s.) Centre in Hamburg and lmam Ali (a.s.) Centre in Stockholm and other places.

We ask Allah the Almighty and Exalted to unite the martyrs with their righteous masters and to grant the wounded a speedy recovery – He is All Hearing and Responds.
