In the name of Allah
#Willayat(The lecture of Ayatollah Khamenei in Ramadan of 1394 in Mashhad): We present you it's summary: 👇👇👇
📣Our own 4th Imam, Imam Sajjaad (AS) also spoke in the same manner with the deviated people of his time. There is a hadeeth (narration) in the book “Bihaar-al-Anwar” about Yahya-bin-umma-Tuwail, a devoted disciple of Imam Sajjaad (AS), addressing the people in the Medina Mosque. These people, among whom the Imams Hassan and Husain (AS) had lived for years, did not help these Imams when needed. In fact they did not have any liking or attachment to the ruling Bani-Umayya Khalifs. So why didn’t they help the rightful Imams? Because they were chicken-hearted cowards who, fearing the suppression and persecution of the deviated rulers, left the progeny of the holy Prophet alone in Karbala; they were not disbelievers, they only feared for their lives.
❌Anyway, Yahya(the prophet) addresses these people quoting the content of some verses of the Quran we already mentioned: ‘We are clear of you, we disown you, and enmity and hatred shall run between us forever.’* This is exactly what Abraham said to those people. As you see, the wilayat that Yahya believes in is the same wilayat as at the time of Abraham. This means that if a Shi’a person does not follow his Imam and joins the camp of the enemies through fear or greed, he is no more a Shi’ite, he is no longer on the path of God. Yahya-bin-Umm-Tuwail, after the demise of Imam Sajjaad, succeeded in strengthening and fortifying the Shi’ite organizations. He was later arrested by the faithless, blood-thirsty governor, Hajjaaj-bin Yousof; he ordered his henchmen to cut off his hands, his legs and finally his tongue and he died as a true, selfless, Shi’ite martyr who never submitted to the oppressive, un-Islamic rulers.(Be continued)
