Allamah Sayyid Murtadha Al-Kashmiri receives the Chairman of the Majlise Ulama Shia Europe and the accompanying delegation and addresses them:
• Your mission these days is immense and dangerous due to what the opponents’ actions to distort the Islamic faith and mislead and distract young people from the authentic Mohammadian school of thought. Therefore your duty is to rectify this through your lectures, meetings and seminars.
• Warns of the spread of Daesh and its branches, the so-called “caliphate cubs.”
25 Jamada I 1439
He spoke to the head of the Majlise Ulama Shia Europe and Imams of Islamic Centers in the United Kingdom and those present, after they gave details of their activities in various the centers of the United Kingdom. His Eminence thanked them for their efforts and services to members of the Muslim community in Europe and for their visit, through which they connect with the representative office of the leading Marja’iyah in Najaf in order to gain the latter’s guidance and advice to Muslims.
His Eminence stressed that: “Your responsibility and mission today is immense and dangerous, especially after the defeat of Daesh and its affiliates with the fatwa of the Marja’iyah and Iraqi blood. However, we must realize that their affiliates are not finished, especially in Europe, because there is a generation that has been brought up on violence, killing and slaughter without distinction between near or far, father or mother. Reports and observers inform us of this matter after the defeat of Daesh, because their evil is not limited to Iraq, Syria and neighboring countries, but spread to Europe through hundreds of elements that joined Daesh in war.”
His Eminence also stressed upon a matter of utmost importance that lately after the emergence of the power of the Marja’iyah and its impact on the Iraqis - their response and acceptance of its appeal when in a couple of days more than two million fighter volunteered to preserve Iraq and its sanctities from Daesh and the Takfiris.
These entities that are against Islam saw, in this direction, danger to their interests and objectives and began to take thousands of counts. They plan to strike this power and break its standing by distorting its reputation for the purpose of diffusing its unified decision-making - offering false ideas contrary to the principles of the faith and doctrine via their own special channels and the appearance of individuals claiming to be emissaries of the Awaited Imam Al-Mahdi (may Allah hasten his reappearance) and other means to attack the faith and its protectors.
Our duty today is to confront this fierce attack and strengthen the youth's thinking by delivering useful lectures to show the danger of this trend, which is only intended to attack the faith and ideology. We also need to inform people that such dangers are not new because the narrations of the Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.) tell us about the emergence of such approaches and trends before the reappearance of the Imam (may Allah hasten his reappearance). There will be many who claim to be emissaries and other such misguided ones. In the meantime we need to remain steadfast in our ideology and preserve the identity and not be influenced by such claims. The Hadith says: A time will come when people who hold to their religion will be like holding ember.
The holy prophet (s.a.w.w.) says:
(إخواني قومٌ في آخر الزمان آمنوا ولم يروني ، لقد عرّفنيهم الله بأسمائهم وأسماء آبائهم ، من قبل أن يخرجهم من أصلاب آبائهم وأرحام أمهاتهم ، لأحدُهم أشدُّ بقيّةً على دينه من خرط القتاد في الليلة الظلماء ، أو كالقابض على جمر الغضا ، أولئك مصابيج الدجى ، ينجيهم الله من كلّ فتنةٍ غبراء مظلمة).
