  1. Forwarding as received... Summary notes of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s speech marking martyrdom of Hajj Qasim Soleimani & Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis - 05/01/2020 (These are rough notes jotted down simultaneously as the speech was ongoing. There may be slight translation errors here or there but this was a faithful attempt to capture the speech’s points ASAP) 2 January 2020 marks a completely new historical turning point I will get back to this later in the speech Now allow me to share some personal points about Hajj Qasim Hajj Qasim achieved his objective with martyrdom as this was his personal objective Soleimani use to tell Nasrallah: my heart is burning to meet Allah and the martyrs He use to frequently cry when the martyrs are mentioned Nasrallah to Soleimani’s family: rest assured as your father has reached his objective Abu Mahdi after battle with Daesh ended asked Sayyed: pray for me for martyrdom O Sayyed Congratulations to Hajj Qasim and Abu Mahdi and to their Iranian and Iraqi brothers with this great martyrdom Now I will talk about this crucial event: what happened, what were the objectives behind it? Where is the region heading, and our responsibilities? My focus here is not about Hajj Qasim’s great personality, this will come at a later date, and likewise for Abu Mahdi 1) What happened? Thursday night: Hajj Qasim and his friends left Damascus airport publicly, to Baghdad airport After entering their vehicles, after a short while, they were barbarically targeted with missiles from the air They became burnt corpses whom you could not recognise anymore Abu Mahdi: no head like Imam Husayn, no hands like Abal Fadl... Hours later, Americans claim responsibility, Trump ordered it We are before a public, clear crime. Trump says I ordered it, US army says I carried out the crime Thus, we are not before an ambiguous crime requiring investigations Ie Trump ordered the US army to carry out this crime, and so they carried it out 2) Why did they carry out this crime in this public way? Two points: a) the failure of previous assasination attempts especially because they were trying to do it in a hidden manner in the last, without leaving traces All these hidden attempts failed. So they went to a public assasination b) all the circumstances of the current equations and situation in Iraq and region, and especially with upcoming US elections Trump has been piling failure upon failure. He has nothing to present to US public in next election. First example: Iran Bolton to munafiqeen khalq (MKO) promised them in France: Iran regime will fall soon. This reflects Trump’s failed policies in attempting regime change in Iran, and later at least changing the behaviour of Iran through various pressure Trump left Iran deal. Placed unprecedented sanctions. Pushing for sedition internally...etc all this failed So what can he tell US public regarding Iran? Nothing! Worse than that, he is trying through mediators to sit with Iranian officials and they have refused. His term will end without receiving any phone calls from Iranian officials! Second example: clear failure of their project in Syria, last of which was their betrayal of their Kurdish allies Trump ends up leaving some soldiers to safeguard Syrian oilfields to steal them, he announced this. This reflects how lost they are in Syria. Third example: failure in Lebanon! They tried everything...(Sayyed is mentioning all the different ploys and plots that they tried) In Yemen: complete failure to achieve any military victory in Yemen. This is an American war, not just Saudi In Afghanistan, Trump is looking for a suitable way to withdraw from there He is not sure whether to negotiate with Taliban or not! No success in Afghanistan The Deal of the Century regarding Palestine: no one talks about this anymore, complete failure As for Iraq: What was Trump’s project? Trump was very clear about this, because he is so arrogant What was Trump saying during election campaign? He was saying: Iraq’s oil is ours. Look how greedy he is over some limited amount of Syrian oil. Iraq’s oil reserves are incomparable to Syria’s reserves Trump was asked: how can you take Iraq’s oil? He says: theres no government in Iraq, we’ll take the oil ourselves Thus, Trump’s true project in Iraq: controlling oil fields, he doesnt want a government in Iraq that will stop him from this. And if there is a government, it must be subservient to the Americans Americans brough Daesh for this purpose.. This was their real problem with Hajj Qasim and Abu Mahdi (for defeating Daesh and foiling these plans) How did this project fail? - by downing the Daesh pretext. Iraq’s stance in decisively defeating Daesh was crucial. Here comes Hajj Qasim and Abu Mahdi’s role.. They were able to finish this battle within a few years. After Daesh fell voices grew within Iraq for Americans to leave. But Americans didnt want to leave.. After Daesh’s fall, there were parliamentary elections, in which the anti-US general movement won in these elections. The US call them the ‘Iranian line’. This is not an accurate description. They are those who refuse to be subservient to America.. The government headed by Adel Abdul Mahdi that was established after these elecions: - refused sanctions campaign against Iran - refused the Deal of Century - went to China and made huge billion dollar deals to build Iraq by giving China oil in return - refused to close borders with Syria and rather opened them - and also called for US withdrawal This made Americans very angry and they felt that Iraq was completely slipping out of their hands Americans never wanted a stable, strong government in Iraq. From 2003 onwards they unleashed vicious hordes of militants to blow up and destroy Iraq In recent times US wanted to push Iraq into civil war. Wise stance of Marjaiyyah and Iraqi tribes and people prevented this The Americans in recent weeks acted in a delirious manner This was US failure in Iraq and the region. Now you are going to US elections. What are you going to tell the people? Let’s be realisic though, he does have achievements. But in terms of foreign policy, what does he have? Venuezula, Cuba, North Korea, China, Russia, even his friends and allies whom he daily insults Trump talks about 3 things only in terms of foreign policy achievements: 1) $400 billion he took from Saudi Arabia 2) the weapons deals to Arab states that he struck, boasting that he is securing American jobs 3) moving embassy from Tel Aviv to Quds These are his achievements. Otherwise there is nothing. Hence they need achievements before the elections. We are not before an isolated assasination. This is the beginning of a new type of war in the region A new American track in the region This assasination was not a ‘war’ for them, because they cannot do this. Trump knows very well a war with Iran is a very dangerous adventure. So he looked for something that can change the equations without going to war Hajj Qasim visited Sayyed on Wednesday, first day of new year He wanted to visit Sayyed, thats how he wanted to start new year Sayyed told him: Americans are talking alot about you, they are preparing for your assasination. Hajj laughed and said: I wish! They looked and found Hajj Qasim was everywhere in the regional axis. Palesine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanisatan, in every detail of the resistance, wherever they look they foundQasim Soleimani! And in Iran, what does Qasim Soleimani mean in Iran?! Israel says Qasim Soleimani is the most dangerous existential threat to it. It never dared to kill him. It could have in Syria many times (but didnt dare), so it went to the Americans for that purpose Hajj Qasim embodied everything for the resistance. So they said: lets kill him publicly. They purposefully done this, and claimed responsibility for it proudly, this was all on purpose They wish that there now be weakness throughout the resistance axis.. We must place the objectives of the assasination and try to foil them There are two major projects in the region. There’s the US and Israeli project of hegemony And the second is the project of resistance, independence, sovereignty, and freedom for our Ummah Some people sit here, some sit there, and some have no idea where they are sitting What is our responsibility to confront these objectives? The confrontation began right after the assasination: We killed one of your greatest generals...to weaken Iran.. Then came the response from Sayyed Qaaed (Khamenei), Iranian officials, and the millions of Iranians who came out Nasrallah to Pompeo: watch the response of Iranians to you on tv, and see the millions of Iranians on the streets replying to you As for Iraq, Trump tried to confuse the resistance movement there, to cause chaos in Iraq and threaten everyone there But the Iraqi response has begun, with the huge funeral processions of Iraqis and Iranians together! Americams have been trying for years to divide Iranians and Iraqis, but all these joint funeral processions have foiled all of these efforts At all levels Iraq has foiled these plans The magic has turned on the magician The world is looking towards the Iraqi parliament to act (to vote for the withdrawal of Americans from Iraq). We hope they can achieve this If US objectives are not downed in parliament, then I know the honourable resistance in Iraq will not leave one American soldier in Iraq!!! O honourable and great Iraqi people, the least that can be done as a response is removing US forces from Iraq The Americans did these assasinations not to leave Iraq but they will lose it anyway The blood of these martyrs must lead to a second liberation of Iraq from US. This is the least that can be done! In Syria, we must go forth strongly until the final victory. No one must feel frightened. Yemenis must continue in Yemen too As for us in the resistance factions, we must do two things: 1) Trump wanted to frighten us. The first response of the resistance factions: we will continue on our path without any fear. These martyrs will provide a huge boost forward. Especially as we feel we are on the verge of a historic regional victory (Sayyed mentioning powerful words from Imam Husayn..) 2) the resistance must increase its coordination and boost its power, as the region appears to be going in another direction Martyrdom of Hajj Qasim must not affect the continuation of the program that he placed, likewise for Abu Mahdi The final response: the just penalty What does that mean? We know who did the crime, and they must be punished. It is well known who Hajj Qasim is Qasim Soleimani is not an Iranian issue. It concerns the whole resistance and the whole Ummah If the Iranians wish to respond fine..but this does not remove the responsibility of the resistance factions. The factions are not tools of Iran.. Iran will not ask resistance factions to implement or do anything So what will we do? Keeping in mind this is an attack on the whole resistance axis We must all go towards a just penalty.. So what is a just penalty? There is no US personality that equals Qasim Soleimani in value Soleimani’s shoes are more valuable than Trump’s head and the whole US administration The just penalty: the US military presence in our region US military bases... US military ships... Every US officer and soldier in our region The US army killed these men, and they will pay the price We don’t mean the American people and citizens - there are many in our region - we don’t mean them. They must not be touched, otherwise this would serve Trump’s policies. The just penalty equals the US army, the occupiers, the criminals This is my opinion If these assasinations are left without much reaction, then this is a very critical and dangerous precedent From the very beginning we must put a stop to this If the resistance and people of region go towards this: America will run away from the region as cowards Just as they did in the past under the blows of the mujahidoon, who were very small in number back then. Today they are states, armies and nations When the coffins of the Americans begin flying back to the United States, Trump and his administration will realise how they lost the region Our determination in the resistance axis must be this: the response for the assasinations is removing the US forces from the whole region If it is achieved, and it will be achieved, then returning al-Quds to the Ummah will be a stone-throw away We may not even require a conflict with Israel The ignorant Trump and the idiots with him don’t know what they have done The coming days will reveal this to them... What blood of ours have you shed? (as Sayyeda Zeinab has said) Today the just penalty for Qasim Soleimani is the same as that of Hajj Imad, Sheikh Ragheb, Sayyed Abbas al-Musawi, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and all the martyrs I am happy for Hajj Qasim, I am very happy for him We are not angry, reactive, scared, to the contrary. We are saying: this is a great opportunity for the Ummah O’ people of the resistance, O’ truthful and patient ones, O’ most pure and dignified people, we will continue this path, and the blood of the martyrs will not be lost! Wasallamu alaykum wa rahmatullah
  2. Eid mubarak to ALL momineen - no one else thank you very much.
  3. Every Shia knows that the biggest waseelah is "Allahumma Salle Ala Muhammad wa alay Muhammad." Just a small hint
  4. Did you receive the Qur'an directly upon your heart or did Allah use the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) as an intermediary between Him and you to get the Qur'an to you? We are not binding g Allah to his intermediaries. Allah has bound us through his intermediaries.
  5. I knew you would say that because you are running out of things to say. Imams were rejected = agreed. You still haven't answered why Imam Hassan (عليه السلام) didn't include it in the Peace Treaty nor did Imam Hussain call for it in his sermons. Imam Ali did compile the Qur'an and it was rejected = agreed. But much like he refused to pay allegiance to Caliph Abu Bakr, why did he not reject their Qur'an? How can people fail when it was not their responsibility to protect the Qur'an? The responsibility to protect the message resided and resides with the Imams. So the role of the Imams is to protect the Qur'an from additions only. Omissions are okay so we could be following 50% Islam & sharia and it would be perfectly okay??? Because the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) instructed Imam Ali (عليه السلام) not to fight for caliphate. He was still the WaliAllah and Imam. I guess another miracle of the Qur'an is that it is COMPLETE while being INCOMPLETE.
  6. @Syed Ali Mehdi Shah Naqvi: When Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was struck by the sword, his words were, "By the Lord of Kaaba, I am successful!". Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was clearly unsuccessfully in completing the Qur'an because ayahs were omitted according to you, so was he successful? When Imam Hassan (عليه السلام) made peace with Muawiya, the first condition was that Muawiya would rule in accordance with the Qur'an and Sunnah. Why didn't Imam Hassan (عليه السلام) make the agreement to complete the Qur'an and then act in accordance to it? Are there any sermons of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) from the time he left Madinah to his martyrdom in Karbala where he spoke about sacrificing his life for the completion of the Qur'an I.e. re-include all the missing ayahs that you are alleging have been omitted?
  7. Salaam. This happened at the Battle of Khandaq (Trench). Imam Ali (عليه السلام) subdued Amr who spat at him. Imam Ali (عليه السلام) stepped away from him because he did not want his own emotions involved in killing Amr. So he walked away and then came back to kill him for the sake of Allah.
  8. Last I checked "Book of Allah" = Qur'an. Regardless, he (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) definitely didn't call it "book between 2 covers". Weak try to digress .
  9. You started this topic with "book in two covers" referring to what every Muslim refers to as the Qur'an. Hadith Thaqlayn is pretty explicit that the Prophet was leaving behind 2 weighty things namely Qur'an and Ahlul Bayt. He didnt say or imply Qur'an+Muhammad+Aimmah are the same so neither should you. Just for reference, a Qur'an with omissions means it is incomplete.
  10. lol, okay. While you doubt the placement of the Ghadeer reference in 5:3 and find it strange, you are also saying the misplacement of the Ghadeer reference is not wrong. Do I have it right? Omissions from the Qur'an means it is complete. Do I have it correct?
  11. I think he is just confused about his own belief system that's why he keeps fluctuating between Qur'an being complete or having omissions.
  12. So you are saying there are omissions in the Qur'an but nothing "vanished" from the Qur'an? Once again, you keep changing your stance. Guidance is complete and all teachings have reached us BUT Qur'an is incomplete because there are omissions. Right because you find something strange, it must be wrong. Makes sense. Whenever 2 hadith contradict each other, we analyse it with the Qur'an to accept one and reject the other ir reject both. So Qur'an is complete again. You seem very confused about your own belief system. Of course you are rejecting hadith thaqlayn if you are saying g there are omissions in the Qur'an. Once we correct your views on the Qur'an, we can address "Aliyun Waliallah" in tashhahud. think before everything you say.
  13. Why would you take guidance from an incomplete book? Surely you don’t believe in Hadith Thaqlayn!!! The traditions of Ahlul Bayt you speak off include this hadith and it references "Qur'an" and "Ahlul Bayt". You refer to Qur'an as "book between 2 covers" so in one fell swoop you reject the Qur'an and the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt meaning you reject hadith thaqlayn. Brother - I suggest you re-affirm your belief in the Qur'an else its merely reflecting on your (lack of) faith.
  14. Your stance has clearly changed from calling it "the book" to "Qur'an". You are implying that tehreef to you is in meaning but also claiming omission as tehreef. So my question remains the same. Is it the Prophet's fault for leaving us with an incomplete book or the Prophet left a complete book but the Imams failed to protect it?
  15. Sure but that's like blaming Allah for all evil since He has permitted Shaytan to live. In layman's terms: A = bad design B = Good design but bad implementation. C = Good design and implementation but bad support system post-implementation. I get the logical fallacy but the Muslim faith in a tehreef-free Qur'an comes from the Qur'an ie Allah. So if that's the starting point, the people who believe in tefreef have to bring the proof, not the ones who believe it to be error free. Discussion about tehreef in meaning only is not part of this discussion. OP is referring to actual addition/omission from the Qur'an. It seems to me you are leaning towards Option C - that the Qur'an had tehreef post the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Based on your reference to the Ghaybah, is it correct to assume you are saying the Qur'an was altered (addition/omission) during the Ghaybah only?
  16. People failing would be a reflection of Allah failing orthe Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) failing or the Imams failing. Allah promised to protect the message (from the people). Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) delivered the message (to the people). Imams protect the message (from the people). So if people altered the message then Imams failed, Prophet failed, Allah failed because none of them could do their jobs.
  17. Are you Shia? Basic Shia belief is that the role of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is to deliver the message and the role of the Imams (عليه السلام) is to protect the message. So are you saying the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) failed to deliver the message correctly or the Imams (عليه السلام) failed to protect the message? Or are you Allah failed in his promise to protect the message from corruption? Please clarify: A) Allah failed B) Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) failed C) Imams (عليه السلام) failed D) Corruption of your own mind.
  18. I am not sure what is so shocking here. Men exploit women. Men in a position of power exploit women. Drs. exploit women. Priests exploit women. Mullahs exploit women. Etc, etc, etc. If I am BBC, I would air this during Arbaeen for maximum interest and viewing. The question isnt why is this airing during Arbaeen but why is this happening or being allowed to happen.
  19. As Shias, we are most unfortunate. The 2 things that have been instrumental in our survival are our scholars and our azadari. We are unfortunate because we bash both these things wholeheartedly without realizing we are killing ourselves. We have countless ahadith praising scholars yet we read 1 book and form opinions about how the scholar is wrong and we are right. Similarly our forefathers gave up everything for azadari to be spread throughout the world. But we want to destroy it all by questioning it and rejecting it rather than getting to the essence of these actions andtm traditions. In this day and age, my compass and barometer is simple. Anyone bashing our marajae or marjaeat OR anyone trying to redice/dilute azadari is not one of us. I commend you for your efforts brother.
  20. Its selective a art. Say "Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was as brave as 10 lions" and people will praise you without realizing they are calling Imam Ali (عليه السلام) a wild animal. Say "Khamenei is the Hussain of today" and the same Shia get offended.
  21. Why take anything from a corrupt scholar? Isn't that an equally dangerous door? Let's take Tusi for example. Should I accept him when he provides a narration but reject him otherwise because he is corrupt? Call me cynical but if someone is a known liar, then I reject everything from him. I accept your statement AS FACT that religion can be destroyed if bidah is introduced in the name of azadari. Shiaism today is stronger than it has ever been in the history if Islam. If introducing bidah destroys religion, then deductive reasoning leads to the FACT THAT SHIAISM IS AS STRONG AS IT IS TODAY BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN NO INTRODUCTION OF BIDAH IN AZADARI. It would or could lead to another logical conclusion that anyone wanting to reduce azadari is in fact trying to weaken the religion. Have Sistani or Khamenei or any 'scholar's denied a request for proof? It sounds like all scholars are corrupt unless they can prove their innocence. I am sure I read somewhere that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) asked the women if Madinah to wear black to mourn for Hz Hamza and that Imam Sajjad (عليه السلام) also asked women to wear black to mourn Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). Did I mis-read? Based on my limited knowledge, I think women are allowed to wear anything black and men can wear black turbans, cloaks and shoes. Agreed? So then the only discussion is wearing a full black outfit. I suppose black top with colored bottoms or vice versa would be acceptable then since I wouldn't be wearing a full black outfit. What about black with pinstripes or polka dots?
  22. Okay great. Got it! But now I have a problem. ALL Shias hadith books including kitab al arba have been compiled by scholars. What if the initial compilers left out all hadith about wearing black clothes because they were corrupt? You may have misread. I wrote Shias survive, not deen will survive. Just to be clear, scholars are corrupt because they don’t provide proof? So let's clarify - men wearing black is the problem, not women wearing black, correct?
