✅In the name of Allah
#Willayat(The lecture of Ayatollah Khamenei in Ramadan of 1394 in Mashhad): We present you it's summary: 👇👇👇
✅Many of those who fought Imam Ali (as) did have respect and kind regards for his sublime virtues, but for temporal gains and cheap, worldly rewards, they joined the camps who fought him. So the kind of wilayat we are explaining is not about loving or not loving the Prophet’s holy progeny. We must think about wilayat to find out what kind of wilayat we believe in. some people would like to fool themselves by expressing their love and reverence for the Imams (as) and not paying any attention to those commitments that their belief in wilayat requires.
On the occasion of Al-Ghadeer, people usually recite this prayer: ‘Praise be to God who made us resorters to the wilayat of Ali-bin-Abi Taalib (as)’*. I often advise my friends to say: ‘O God, pray make us the resorters to…’, that is, beseeching God to help us become true believers in wilayat. Anyway, I think we have talked about one dimension of wilayat sufficiently. And I think that the Sura Mumtahina in the Quran could also be called the Sura Al-wilayat and now I shall recite, translate and explain the verses 1 to 4 from this Sura. It begins: “In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful; O You believers! Do not take for guardians the enemies of Mine and foes of yours;…”. The translation of ‘owliah’ in the papers handed to you is good; it says ‘companions, comrades’ because some people translate the word as ‘friends’; this is an incomplete meaning because the verse talks about the ‘enemies of God and believers’, and it is obvious that you should not be friends with such enemies! The verse tells us something more than this: you should never allow them to become your guardians, you should never let them infiltrate your ranks, but you should consider them as your opponents and foes which in fact they are.
Next we read: “…you show them friendship but they are the ones who rejected the Truth that was revealed to you; and drove out the Messenger and yourselves because you did believe in God, your Lord…’. They are the people who drove you and your Prophet from their houses ad their city only because you did believe in God the One, God Almighty and your Lord, they are your real enemies, and you should never let them help you. “…if you come out to struggle in My cause seeking to please Me, do you then extend secret affection to them as friendly, fellow-combatants?!...”. The verses tell us that if you go out to fight on the path of God and if your objective is to please your Lord, then you should not take God’s enemies as your helpers.(Be continued)
