Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said that nowadays events prove Ashura’s main lesson: blood triumphs over sword.
In the first eve of Ashura in Sayyed Al-Shuhada complex in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh), Sayyed Nasrallah called people for wide participation during Ashura ceremonies across Lebanese neighborhoods.
His eminence said that Imam Hussein (a.s.) after more than 1400 years still has the capability to awaken people.
“And that what happened during the Islamic revolution of Iran and the Islamic resistance [Hezbollah], as well as fighting all Takfiri groups. This logic, spirit and determination are still active and present.”
“Islam survived, spread and expanded because of sacrifices of Imam Hussein,” Sayyed Nasrallah assured.
Meanwhile, Hezbollah S.G. said that “victory may mean disabling the fundamental goals of the enemy. When Resistance manages to prevent the enemy from achieving his goals, this means she triumphs.”
On the other hand, he noted that “there is a higher level of victory when Resistance prevents the enemy from achieving its goals while managing to achieve hers as happened between 1985 and 2000.”
“When we discuss who had the overpower in this world and who will be the winner in the afterlife, then we can talk about a victory and defeat,” Sayyed Nasrallah stressed.
His eminence pointed out that ISIL group, along with other Takfiri groups “who are trying to ‘become close to God’ by killing, beheading and captivity are descendants of Muslim bin Oqba.”
