RAWALPINDI, March 12: The Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the pious character of Imam Hassan Askari (pbuh) guarantees felicity, welfare and eternal deliverance for the oppressed world. This was stated by him while announcing to observe Ayyam-e-Askari from 14-18 March in connection with the Wiladat Purnoor of Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (pbuh).
Agha Moosavi said that the era of the farzand e Nabi o Ali and Imam Ali Naqi (pbut), Hazrat Imam Askari (pbuh) was replete with the worst type of restrictions on freedom of expression. Oppression, suppression, brutalities, discrimination, injustice, deprivation and bloodshed of the have-nots and the oppressed was commonplace and the rulers boasted of shedding the blood of the poor, helpless and innocents.
Agha Moosavi said that he was detained many a time but his life span spread over 28 years stands witness that the rulers could not bow him down or divert him from the righteous path. He said that Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (pbuh) proved through his deeds that, like his forefathers, they could not make him bow down before them as infallible Imams are bound to follow the commandments of Allah only.
He said the world remained in need of a Hadi (Guide) from the very beginning that had been fulfilled by Hazrat Noah (pbuh), Hazrat Ibrahim (pbuh), Hazrat Musa (pbuh), Hazrat Eisa (pbuh), Ambia and Mursaleen. Similarly, he said the Holy Prophet (SAAW) fulfilled the requirement of the Muallim-e-Quran along with Quran and after him this need was fulfilled by his pious inheritors. He said the Holy Prophet (SAAW) has stated in Hadees-e-Saqlain: I am leaving two invaluable things i.e. Quran and Ahle Bait (pbuh) amongst you; you should remain attached to the same as these two will not separate from one another.
The Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Mousavi said that on the happy occasion of wildat e purnoor of Imam Hassan Al Askari (pbuh) while paying respect and gratitude to the Holy Family of the Holy Prophet (pbut), oppression and brutality should be condemned. He appealed to Pakistanis to pray on the occasion of Alamgeer Ayyam e Askari for the solution to the problems of the Muslims world, safety and integrity of the motherland and for the success of Islamic movements. He further stated that the programmes of Mahafil e Milaad should be held in order to pay respect to the pious family and companions of the Holy Prophet (pbuh & hhp), for the solidarity with the oppressed and to show enmity towards oppression and brutality. In order to organize the programmes in connection with Alamgeer Ayyam e Askari (pbuh) Dr S M Rizvi has been nominated as convenor of the committee while Syed Bu Ali Mehdi and Syed Asad Ali Hassani will be Deputy Convenor and secretary of the committee respectively.
RAWALPINDI, Pakistan – March 6: Senior leader of Tehreek Nafaz-i-Fiqh-i-Jafariya Syed Najam Abbas Kazmi alias Abu Nasr Kazmi was laid to rest. His funeral prayer led by Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi was performed at Maktab-i-Tashayyo headquarters Ali Masjid.
Besides central office-bearers of TNFJ, ulema-i-karam, matmi azadaraan, majalis founders, naat khwans and noha khwans, thousands of people belonging to different stratums of life attended.
On this occasion Agha Moosavi laid wreath of flowers on behalf of TNFJ and subsidiary wings and expressed hearty condolence to the bereaved family.
Appreciating national and religious services of the deceased, Agha Moosavi announced ‘Three-day mourning’. He said the late Najam Kazmi was a dynamic activist of Tehreek, a true devotee of Prophet (SAWW) and Ahle Bait (AS) and a patriotic person who had spent all his life in Markaz-e-Maktab-i-Tashayyo for religious and national services. He efficiently worked to organize Milad-un-Nabi and Azadari processions. His sudden death is irreparable national loss.
During the funeral, matmi organizations of Rawalpindi performed noha khwani. On this occasion, heart-rending scenes were seen; members of TNFJ, its subsidiary wings, Mukhtar Force, MSO, Ibrahim Scouts, MO and Mukhtar Generation, Matmi, azadaran, and office-bearers of Milad Committees were crying for the deceased.
RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: Spokesman and son-in-law of late Marje Kabeer Grand Ayatollah Syed Mohsin Al-Hakim Tabatabai, and respected father of faqeeh-i-doraan (jurist of this age) Grand Ayatollah Syed Muhammad Saeed Al-Hakim, Hazrat Grand Ayatollah Syed Muhammad Ali Al-Hakim has died in the holy city of Najaf, Iraq. He was 100.
The late Ayatollah was an author and a teacher who was fully equipped with many religious sciences. He was seen with great honour and respect in all stratums. He paid a visit to Pakistan in 1966 and was warmly welcomed by all intellectual circles; his addresses on Ittehad baynul Muslimeen were highly appreciated.
In a statement issued from Maktab-i-Tashayyo headquarters, Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi while expressing hearty condolence on Ayatollah Muhammad Ali Al-Hakim’s sad demise termed it a great tragedy for Islamic world and announced to observe ‘Tarhim Day’ on March 6.
He appealed momineen to hold programs of Quran-Khwani, majalis-i-tarahim and praying gatherings for elevation of ranks of deceased Ayatollah Muhammad Ali Al-Hakim on the occasion of ‘Tarhim Day’.
RAWALPINDI, February 27: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said those who commit blasphemy could be stopped and every conspiracy and mischief against Islam, Mashaheer-e-Islam and Shariat could be thwarted through practical following of courage and seerat of Abu Talib (A.S.). This was stated by him while announcing to observe “Universal Ayyam Al-Huzn” from February 28 to March 4 in connection with the Wafat of Murabbi-o-Nigehban of Nabuwwat and Risalat, Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.).
In a statement issued from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih, Agha Moosavi said that observing the grief of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) is Sunnat-e-Rasool (SAAW). He said the history stands witness that Kuffar-e-Makkah could not hurt the Rasool (SAAW) during Abu Talib’s (A.S.) life despite their all-out efforts. He said today the satanic world has made its habit to commit blasphemy while colonial powers were posing a challenge to the whole Muslim World including Pakistan, on the other, by imposing sanctions and threats on them. He said the Muslim rulers should learn a lesson from the past and should ensure fulfilment of basic rights of the people as they would have to be ready to face all types of situations otherwise. He made it clear that the Khatmi Martabat (SAAW) is the Mohsin-e-Insaniyyat but those holy personalities who provided protection of the Rasool (SAAW) and bore all types of problems and difficulties in doing so. This deed of theirs could not be forgotten and would remain a part of history.
Agha Moosavi said there is a saying of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) that goes: “It is my faith that the religion of Muhammad (SAAW) is better than all other religions, by God, even if all atheist forces unite, they could not cause any harm to you (Oh, Muhammad) till Abu Talib is alive.” That is why Allah termed the Abu Talib’s protection as His protection. “Oh, Rasool, Allah found you orphan. Thus He provided you protection.” Protection is being given by Abu Talib (A.S.) but Allah is saying that He is providing the protection. It speaks of the greatness, sanctity and mirage of Abu Talib’s (A.S.) faith. The Rasool (SAAW) was grieved on the Wafat of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) to the extent that he declared the year of his Wafat as ‘Aam Al-Huzn’ i.e. the year of mourning that declares that observing the grief of is Sunnat-e-Nabavi. He said the Rasool (A.S.) had to migrate from Makkah after the Wafat of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.).
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi appealed the countrymen to pay condolences to Rasool (SAAW), Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kubaar by organising Majalis-e-Aza and condolence meetings during the Ayyam Al-Huzn. By deriving commitment and courage from Shoeb-e-Abi Talib, we should announce our commitment to follow the seerat of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) and face every restriction with courage and not allow anyone to cause any harm to the dignity of Risalat come what may, he added.
Meanwhile, a TNFJ committee has been formed to organise the programmes of Universal Ayyam Al-Huzn. M.H. Jafri has been nominated as Convener, Malik-e-Ashtar as Secretary, and Prof. Ghulam Abbas Haideri as Deputy Secretary of this committee.
RAWALPINDI, February 23: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said the Sunni-Shia people of Pakistan, by observing Universal Hafta Wahdat-o-Akhuwwat, have displayed practical mutual unity and brotherhood so as to proof that the atheist world could not dismantle our unity and every conspiracy and mischief would be thwarted by mutual brotherhood. This was stated by him while addressing the concluding function of Universal Hafta Wahdat-o-Akhuwwat that also marked the Wiladat Ba-Sa’adat of Hazrat Umme Kulsoom Binte Ali (S.A.). He said colonial chief and her agents were utilising all tactics to create rift amongst Muslims to as to reap their own benefits out of it so as they could be destabilised by pitching brother against brother. Therefore, he said, all patriotic forces are under the obligation to display practical unity and brotherhood.
Agha Moosavi said that if we love Nazria-e-Asaasi and Muslim Ummah, then we should give up accusing one another and become a concrete wall to thwart the heinous designs of the combined enemy because we share our grieves and happiness. Attack on any Maktab or country would be considered an attack on the religion and Shariat, he added. He made it clear that Asaas of the religion rests on justice and fair-play and objective of the Ba’asat of Anbia and Mursaleen was also the same that is why they kept on confronting every oppressive and tyrant ruler of their era. He said it is a settled fact that righteousness and truth have to emerge supreme. He said motherland Pakistan was created for the supremacy of justice and fair-play. He said reason to all crises confronted by Pakistan and elsewhere is lack of justice and fair-play. He said the way the nation has displayed practical unity and brotherhood is laudable.
The TNFJ chief said the way Hazrat Umme Kulsoom (S.A.) delivered her khutbaat in the streets of Kufa and Shaam and in the courts of Yazid and Ibne Ziad brought victory to justice and fair-play and blackened the face of oppression and brutality. He said the Muazzima Bibi (S.A.) despite a woman and despite being without Maqna and Chaddar refused to bow down before oppression and taught a lesson to the freedom fighters till the D-Day. He said the heart-rending khutbaat of Hazrat Umme Kulsoom (S.A.) shattered the streets of Kufa and Shaam and the courts of Ibne Ziad and Yazid.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said the Zahra’s (S.A.) presence gave mirage to the personality of woman as previously woman was used to send to the grave from the lap. Today the human history is replete with the good deeds of renowned women. He said Hazrat Umme Kulsoom (S.A.) was the great Khateeba of her time. In Kutab-e-Rijal, it is written that Umme Kulsoom is the kuniyyat of Zainab-e-Sughra (S.A.). She came to Karbala along with her brother Imam Hussain (A.S.) and then bore the difficulties of gaol along with Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S.). Her seerat and courage is the example for freedom movements to follow and beacon of light for those mothers and sisters who are ever ready to sacrifice their dear ones, he added.

On this occasion central spokesman of TNFJ Allama Qamar Haider Zaidi, while addressing the participants of the procession, said that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the single point of unity for the whole of humanity and Muslim world and Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Mousavi has announced to celebrate the universal unity week (Alamgeer Hafta e Wehdat o Akhuwat) for the same reason.
He said that celebrations of Meelad un Nabbi (pbuh) and Mourning processions are the means to show the magnificence of Islam, because Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) delivered the Divine Message while, Imam Hussain (pbuh) protected this Message. He reiterated the vow to defeat every conspiracy of the enemies of Islam and Pakistan by practicing unity amongst various schools of thought. He saluted the participants for turning out in large numbers to take part in the procession, even in the presence of dangers of terrorism.

RAWALPINDI, February 14: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Muslims all over the world will have to protect the dignity of Rasool (SAAW), Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kibaar so as to highlight their honour and dignity and stop the colonial agents from violating the honour of these holy personalities. This was stated by him while announcing Universal Hafta Wahdat-o-Akhuwwat to be observed from Rabiul Awwal 12-18 in connection with Jashan Milad-un-Nabi (SAAW) and Hazrat Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq (A.S.). In a statement issued from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashayyo, he said like respect of holy personalities is binding, similarly the respect of their signs and shrines is also binding. But, he added, the shrines of Ummahatul Momineen, Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kibaar were bulldozed in Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moalla about 75 years ago but the whole Islamic World is keeping a mum. Even today the devotees of Rasool (SAAW) could not perform ziarat of Rasool’s dear ones in line with their beliefs. He said other nations utilise all energies in protecting and decorating the signs of their Mohsins so that the coming generation could know about them well.
Agha Moosavi said the satanic forces could only be stopped from indecent advances against Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW) and Mashaheer-e-Islam when the Islamic World presents practical proof of Risalat’s (SAAW) dignity instead of extending mere lip-service.
He said the Muslim Ummah would have to make their words and deeds coherent first. He said had the followers of Tauheed protected the Mashaheer-e-Islam then the handful of Zionists would not have the courage to put the Qibla-e-Awwal Bait ul-Muqaddas on fire, Babri Masjid could not have been razed to ground, and no one would have the courage to make images of Rasool (SAAW) and commit blasphemy. He said to ensure the implementation of death penalty for desecration of Risalat (SAAW) and Ahle Bait (A.S.), it is necessary for the Muslim Ummah to follow the Usswah-e-Risalat in letter and spirit. For this purpose, it is necessary to practise Quranic commandments; only that work should be done that is asked by Rasool (SAAW) to be done and should stop doing the one from which he (SAAW) has stopped.
The TNFJ chief said the judiciary should make the explanation of blasphemy. He said like Banu Ummayad and Banu Abbas misused Islam as a shield to prolong their rule, similarly some powers desire to polish their politics making Islam and Mashaheer-e-Islam as their shield. They have no other issue to highlight and their attitude of making fun out of religion and Shariat is lamentable. He said we are the followers of those holy personalities who played as a shield for Quran, Islam, Shariat, Ahmed-e-Mustafa (SAAW) and Sha’air Allah and sacrificed all their family to save them. He said there is a saying of the Rasool (SAAW) that Muslim is the brother of other Muslims and one who sees morning is a condition that he have not done anything for Muslims, is not a Muslim. While in the present era, the condition of the Islamic World is that they do not feel the pain of Muslims whatever treatment they are meted to, he added. Had the whole Muslim Ummah felt pain of one another then the condition of Muslims in Kashmir and Palestine would have been better and atheist forces would not have interfered in the affairs of Muslims.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said solution of all problems confronted by the Islamic World lay in practical following of Usswah of Rasool (SAAW) and Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.). He said the life of the Rasool (SAAW) spread over 63 years stands witness that he got himself recognised as Sadiq and Ameen from the atheist world. As many as 104 wars were imposed on him but he always adopted defensive strategy, never committed aggression, and no question arises of oppression and brutality against anyone, he added. He said Hazrat Sadiq Aal-e-Muhammad Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq (A.S.) is the sixth inheritor of Khatmi Martabat (SAAW). He said we would continue expressing hatred against oppressors and support the oppressed by following his seerat.
Meanwhile, a committee of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya has also been formed to organise programmes of Universal Hafta Wahdat-o-Akhuwwat. Meesam Tammar has been nominated its Convener while Abu Nasr Kazmi will be the Secretary of this committee.
RAWALPINDI, February 13: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Muslim Ummah can become unbeatable by strengthening its faith on Almighty Allah and expressing reverence with the true representatives of Allah. May the world of Kufr attain heights of technology and power, Islam will supersede which is the promise of Almighty. He said this while addressing to the Mehfil-e-Eid-e-Zahra (S.A), held to celebrate the Jashan-e-Tajposhi-e-Imam-e-Zamana (ATF) and Youm-e-Mukhtar-e-Aal-e-Muhammad (PBUH).
He said that terrorism has taken over the whole world while peace has vanished from the face of earth. The world of Kufr is taking each and every possible measure to dominate Muslims, while satanic forces have launched their heinous propaganda by effectively using media as their tool. Further disappointing is the fact that Muslim rulers of Islamic countries, have also started considering America, as their lord while, America has been plotting against their governments by making and breaking them.
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that most of the muslim rulers are working as agents of satanic forces. As soon as the colonial powers get a new agent they wipe off the older one, while people get along with everyone who promises them a good future. This whole practice makes them fall from one ditch to another. He said that Allah has pronounced in the ayat istakhlaaf of the holy Quran that “Those who are faithful amogst you, and perform good deeds, will certainly be declared the representatives of Allah, as has been declared in the past, and Allah will certainly strengthen their faiths in the religion that Allah has recommended for them, and Allah will certainly replace all types of worries and fears with peace. Allah will be followed and worshiped, no one will commit “shirk” and after all this whoever will deny, will be considered “Faasik o Fajir”. Agha Moosavi said that those who are faithful, will never been dominated by the power of Kufr and a time will come when the real representative of Allah, Hazrat Imam Mehdi (A.S) will come and fill the world with justice and fairness.
He reminded that Islam did not spread through oppression rather it has been spread by infallibles and oppressed (mazloomiat) therefore, whoever will go away from the axis of Islam, will cause himself insult and denigration. Agha Moosavi said that Almighty Allah says that “On the day of justice everyone will be summoned with his Imam”. The whole Islamic Ummah agrees to the fact that a pious personality from the sacred family of the holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his progeny), will rise to eradicate the oppression and injustice to place the system of Almighty Allah on the face of earth. Oppressed will get their rights, while oppressors will have to pay for their brutalities. Therefore, it is mandatory for the whole Ummah to associate themselves with holy prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his progeny) and his sacred family, which is the only guarantee for the success in this world and hereafter. While condemning the suicide attack on Zaireen that occurred in Sammara city of Iraq, on the occasion of the martyrdom day of Imam Hassan Askari (A.S), he said that martyrdom is our inheritance and a guarantee of the success. Colonial powers will never be able to distance Muslims from the heroes and leaders of Islam using these kinds of evil tactics.
On this occasion, the secretary information of TNFJ Allama Qamar Haider Zaid, Mufti Basim Abbas Zahiri, Syed Jaun Ali Mashhadi, and others also addressed the mehfil.
