The representative of the leading Marja’iyah in Europe calls on the Muslim world to get closer to Allah in this ‘night of destiny’ (Laylatul-Qadr), supplicate and be obedient to Him, and adhere to the teachings of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) and follow the Marja’i approach; which is the Muslims’ safety ship in this day and age.
His call came on the occasion of the blessed ‘night of destiny’ (Laylatul-Qadr), when Allah opens the gates of heaven for His worshipers to be showered with His compassion and be served from His sea of generosity and cleanse themselves of the defilement of their sins and wrongdoings. That night which is not succeeded by any other night in glory, status and exaltedness. Because it is the night when Almighty Allah revealed His glorious book and testament. It is the night in which the angels descend and cram the earth - as stated in some narrations - and people’s destinies in different yearly affairs are determined.
What a great and revered night it is! What a great loss for those who are distracted from Allah, getting on with their worldly affairs. People should be supplicating their creator, hoping for Him to liberate them and liberate all believers from the agonies and concerns that have engulfed them like a bracelet on a wrist. Thoughts of terrorism invade them, arrows of discord tear them apart, and enemies lie in waiting for them, the media contaminates their hearts and minds with impurities in order to dissolve beliefs and eliminate ethics.
There is no way to escape from these horrors but to beseech and resort to Allah in this night and cling to the glorious Qur’an and the path of Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.), which includes everything to secure their religion, shielding them from the evils of their world, following the path of the leading Marja’iyah - which is the extension of the divine path- that still provides the believers with sound views and cares for them like a compassionate father does for his children.
We ask the Allah Almighty to help us stay up this great night and benefit from its atmosphere for He is the grantor of success.
