In the name of Allah, the most Gracious the most Merciful

During a meeting with the caravan "Nidae ul-Aqsa", the grand Ayatullah Sheikh Yaqubi said: there is no substitute for the Islamic option to fight the enemy on all fronts.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Yaqubi (Dam Zila) met the caravan "Nidae ul Aqsa" in his office in Najaf Ashraf (1), the caravan included Shiite and Sunni mujahid clerics from Palestine, Syria and Lebanon, who had determined to establish a stall for the pilgrims of Imam Hussain (as) in order to urge the believers to keep remembering the Quds and keep the jihad alive until the usurped lands were reclaimed. After the audience outlined the objectives of the initiative and the difficulties and persistence of the Palestinian people, Mr. Sheikh (Dam Zila) began his speech and welcomed the delegation and he drew their attention to the point that this is a blessing of Allah that He brought them together in the neighborhood of Imam Ali (a.s.) He is the one who destroyed all the conspiracies of Jews in all the Islamic wars. This is a special time that reminds us the The Great Stand of Imam Hussain (a.s) which is the password of Jihad, resistance, negation of cruelty, the role model of the avengers and freedom of human beings. Then he carried on his speech and said: Of course, Al-Aqsa is the first Qibla and the third Haram and from the beginning of Islam, Muslims have a special respect for it in their hearts. In fact, Najaf Ashraf's religious authority has given great importance to the issue of Palestine and Quds from the very beginning. And the great religious authority and  the great reformer, the late Sheikh Muhammad Hussain Al-Kashif Al-Ghatta (Quds Sirro) himself (1350 AH: 1931 AD), attended the Islamic Conference held in Quds. At that time, after the Balfour Treaty of 1917, Jews began to migrate to Palestine. The grand Ayatollah pointed to the performance of the religious authority in Najaf Ashraf (2) and the support of the jihadi process against the Zionist existence when the Al-Aqsa Mosque was burnt down in 1969 and the jihadi process began.

At that time, Syed Mohsin Al-Hakim (quddisa sirro), the supreme religious authority of Najaf Ashraf, welcomed the move and allowed the Shari'ah wealth that the followers offer them to spend in these matters, and the religious authority has been always calling for the Islamic option against the enemy because the enemy fights on the basis of his faith and sacrifices his life for it, that is why it must be confronted with faith. But some organizations raised the slogan of Arab nationalism through their agendas, which was not an effective reason for sacrifice, because it was not according to the Islamic creed. That is why they managed to keep other Muslim nations away from this war because they made them believe that the issue of Palestine has nothing to do with them and it is a purely Arab issue.

The grand Ayatollah also pointed out that the situation changed in 1987 when the Mujahedeen chose Islamic option and the Islamic Resistance Movement came into being and its strength increased further. God Almighty has referred to the same power in the Holy Quran:

“If there are among you twenty [who are] steadfast, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are among you one hundred [who are steadfast], they will overcome a thousand of those who have disbelieved because they are a people who do not understand. “(Surah Anfal: 65).

 Similarly, he said that now by the grace of God Almighty, the balance of power has changed in favor of Mujahedeen. They used to attack their Zionist enemy with stones and received bullets on their chests, but in the latest battle of Saif al-Quds, they dropped thousands of missiles on the enemy's heads until the Zionist city came under attack.

At the end of the meeting, the visiting delegation expressed their happiness and satisfaction over the meeting with the grand Ayatollah, which ignited their hopes that the Religious Authority of Najaf was and is a pillar and main helper for the Palestinian cause.
