The Woman Who Raised Heroes

The Woman Who Raised Heroes

Hussein Samawarchi

This is, by far, one of the most eventful weeks for the media this year. The ongoing discussions of the speeches made at the United Nations shook the world of news analysts with praise for leaders like Presidents Hasan Rouhani [Iran] and Michel Aoun [Lebanon], and, mockery for substandard performers like [“Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and [US President Donald] Trump. There was also the mystery roaming around the Khashoggi affair which has had everyone making speculations as to how much will Erdogan take for hushing up the matter. Mohammed bin Salman had his pilot terrorists target a hospital in Yemen and then families running away from his bombs. And, news of the execution of unarmed Palestinian protestors by Zionist forces made the headlines as well.

All of the above plus coverage of Hurricane Michael could not divert attention from two women who also made the news. They are both best known for their positions on heritage and the oppressed of the world. One defended her heritage with everything dear to her heart and the other did everything she could to deny her own. One gave her three sons and a grandson to the cause of the oppressed while the other strives to have the children and grandchildren of the oppressed massacred.

The first is Aminah Salameh who is better known as Hajjeh EUm Imad Mughniyeh; she is identified as The Mother of Martyrs. A title well deserved because of the number of times she had to attend the funerals of her beloved children who achieved martyrdom in the course of defending their homeland against the invading Zionist terrorists and their Takfiri partners who attempted to break down the last Arab country standing against imperialism.

Hajjeh Um Imad waged war against evil by educating her sons about the necessity of loving their country as much as she loved them; and, a mother’s love is so immense that the greatest poets have not, yet, been able to describe it in words. That is how much her children loved their country.
She also raised them to be proud of their identity and to defend it vigorously; the identity that derives its roots from the teachings of Imam Hussein (AS) – protecting justice and defending those who are oppressed even when the enemy is superior in numbers and arms.

But that is not the only reason why she gained the title The Mother of Martyrs. People bestowed this honor on her for the role she had in motivating others. She never allowed the loss of her beloved children to break her down. That is because she did not see it as a loss. Every time the flag of her country soared higher into the sky because of the martyrdom of one of her sons, her pride grew.

In a culture where the woman is regarded as a leader, Hajjeh Em Imad carried the banner of our Lady Zeinab (AS) with all that it signifies, from strength to sacrifice to victory.

The other woman who made the news during the same time is Nimrata Randhawa, US Ambassador to the United Nations. People may know her better as Nikki Haley.  She announced her resignation this week.

Independent news outlets are still trying to pinpoint the real reason for the decision, but talk of a corruption scandal has begun circulating. Other analysts speak of a higher role being assigned to her in the Zionist deep state that comes as a token of appreciation for her shameless public support of killing Arabs where possible. She would be prepared to win the US presidential elections of 2024 and the American public would be prepared for “Israel’s” flag to fly over the White House instead of the Star-Spangled Banner.

A lot of women choose to keep their maiden names after marriage, but Nimrata did not only drop it, she dropped the first name her parents gave her as well. She changed it to Nikki in an attempt to delete everything that links her to her real heritage. How can a person who denies her own identity be expected to uphold the identity of her country? Perhaps, that is why she is dubbed “Israel’s” Ambassador to the UN instead of the ambassador of the country paying her salary.

The two women are, indeed, at opposite ends of the ethical spectrum.

As much as it saddens the heart to see Hajjeh Um Imad leave us, something very comforting could not escape the eye when watching the coverage of her farewell proceedings. The sheer number of women, young and old, participating and paying tribute to The Mother of Martyrs can only assure us that her legacy of raising patriotic heroes will go on.

She is now with Jihad, Fouad, Imad, and young Jihad, telling them how proud she is of them and ensuring them that with so many mothers raising children like she has, victory is certain for the oppressed.

Sayyed Nasrallah’s Other Side: A Caring Father Passionate about Reading

Sayyed Nasrallah’s Other Side: A Caring Father Passionate about Reading

Beirut – The interview with Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s son, Jawad, would not be complete without us asking about his father. We have always been captivated by a lot of the details surrounding Sayyed. The charisma of this extraordinary man – captured on screen – makes one eager to see his other side.

We often have many questions in mind. And if any information about the life of His Eminence is revealed to us, it becomes the “talk of the hour”. There is no doubt that writing about His Eminence’s other side is one of the finest topics. Of course, this is no exaggeration. Who among us does not ask himself again and again about the other side of this leader? Who does not thirst for any detail about his life?

In the midst of talking about Sayyed, you get excited and curious. A lot of questions come to mind, and you wish you had more time for the answers. In any case, his son is the interviewee. It’s an opportunity.

There is no doubt they shared many moments. When it comes to talking about Sayyed, you become greedy. The more you know, the more you ask. How can you not when you are delving into a character unmatched in history?

There was plenty of time allocated but it passed in the blink of an eye. There is no boredom when talking about Sayyed, the father, the companion, the backbone and the leader. Jawad talks about his father with passion and eagerness. How can he not when he is a role model!

Tell us about His Eminence’s other side – was the phrase that triggered the start of the discussion about the wise, compassionate and patient father. Usually when a son is asked about his father, he speaks with passion and love. What about when the father is Sayyed Hassan!

Jawad is confused about where to begin. Sayyed is a mass of morality and humanity. He is a man in every sense of the word. In trying to describe his father, Jawad picks his words carefully.

When talking about Sayyed as a father, Jawad gets carried away for Sayyed is compassionate and holds all the qualities of a true parent.

On the personal side, Sayyed is charming and possesses an amazing way of persuasion. It is enough for him to look at us. Sayyed has a hobby he picked up. He also has his own views regarding raising grandchildren.

Among family, Sayyed is in another world

“His Eminence loves the family very much. But we have grown accustomed to always missing him given the nature of his leadership role within the party,” Jawad says as he talks about family gatherings that bring together Sayyed, his wife, his children and grandchildren.

“During these gatherings, Sayyed is in another world. We are careful not to ask him about work and politics. The most common topic we ask him about is Saheb al-Zaman and the reappearance movement,” his son explains.

Jawad talks about Sayyed the husband. “He and my mother were the perfect and ideal model as a couple for us as children. Their relationship was based on respect. There was politeness and refinement in the way they spoke to each other. We grew up in this manner and we still see it.”

“Sometimes, my father would reminisce about his childhood when the games were completely different than today. Simplicity dominated football. The playground was still sand. The goal was made of wood. Scores were written on shirts. Such simplicity brought joy and happiness to the hearts of children during that beautiful yet tough time, unlike these days with the generation of the iPads and smart games,” Jawad says.

“Sometimes he tells us about the time he spent in Iraq and Baalbek,” Jawad continues. “Since the age of sixteen, my father has had an eventful journey, starting from the Hawza to Islamic work to taking up responsibilities within the resistance until he assumed the post of Secretary General of Hezbollah. As for his school years, we find through conversations how loved Sayyed was there.”

The wise and compassionate father

“The get-togethers with Sayyed are always rich with nice advice. It is true that my mother played an important part in our upbringing, but our compassionate, kind, wise and emotional father’s advice was always present.”

“From a young age, some things were red lines for my father,” Jawad says. “It is forbidden to interfere in people’s private lives or to infringe upon the physical and moral rights of others. ‘Beware of interfering in people’s lives, talking behind their backs and spreading sedition.’ What is most important to Sayyed is respecting people in every sense of the word.”

“One of the most important things that he commended us is not to lie to people. This matter – if it happened God forbid; thank God it did not happen – has a different punishment. Of course, it is enough for him just to look at us.”

Here, Sayyed Jawad points out that His Eminence has a great deal of control over his anger. “When he gets upset or annoyed by something, you do not hear a word from him. He has a great ability to control himself. In short, he can be described as a mountain of patience holding the reins of things.”

An amazing means of persuasion!

“Sayyed has an amazing means of persuasion. He does not say it is forbidden just for the sake of saying it. The argument is always ready. This matter helped us understand what he wanted from a mere sign. When we were young, he only looked at us and we understood what he wanted,” Jawad recalls.

“I do not remember him interfering for the sake of interfering. On the contrary, he interfered with love, kindness, flexibility and smoothness. For example, when he did not like someone’s hairstyle or clothing style, he would convince us with his distinctive manner saying, ‘this hairstyle is inappropriate to a son of a family keen on education.’”

“Sayyed never threatened us, he spoke to us calmly and with flexibility. Hence, we found ourselves automatically and willingly heading in the direction he wanted. I do not remember a time when my father prevented us from something arbitrarily. The argument was always ready. He was ready to persuade us. His view was always preponderant.”

The one we refer to in consultations

When Sayyed Jawad speaks of the father that everyone refers to for advice, he points to his broad horizon as well the knowledge and logic, which he relies on in discussions. He approaches this issue with a great deal of enthusiasm.

“We always make sure to consult him. He has unmatched charm and chemistry.”

Most people consult their fathers, but what about when the father is a role model with this degree of insight and wisdom!

“I have always told my father when he tells me that I have a choice: you are by my side and you have all these qualities, is it wise not to consult you? Amir al-Muminin (Peace Be Upon Him) says, ‘He who consults other people, shares in their understanding.’ Sometimes, even though I find certain matters appropriate, I still consult him,” Jawad says.

He gives us many examples that underscore Sayyed’s wisdom as well as his perception and ability to look into the future.

“On more than one occasion I consulted him. He would tell me, ‘do not act like this.’ Of course, I went along with him without hesitation, and as God is my witness, ten years later in one particular situation I discovered my father’s delicate insight.”

Wide horizon

Jawad points out that Sayyed Hassan does not only give his opinion about matters.

“He also gives us justifications. I began to adore listening to his explanations because he has a great way of persuasion,” Jawad says.

“What distinguishes His Eminence is his very wide horizon. For example, we confine ourselves with some details. When we consult him, we are surprised at the way we thought. We think point by point. But his approach to things is unlimited. It does not matter how big the problem is, he analyzes it and minimizes it. We then discover that it is nothing.”

Jawad then delves deeper into Sayyed’s amazing horizon.

“For example sometimes I listen to news and read newspapers, so I get a certain impression. Later, I ask him about the reality of things. It seems completely different from what we have heard from some reports. More recently, I make sure to ask him about the truth when it comes to published news reports. I even ask him about the news circulating in the street. He gets very dissatisfied with some of the news that shame innocent people,” Jawad says.

“He always tells me, ‘we have to take people to heaven. The Prophet came to get people to God’s mercy. That vast mercy. I am not required to make someone pay for a mistake he committed. On the contrary, pulling him out of sin will have positive effects, not only for him but for his entire family.’”

His permanent commandments to us

“According to my father, worship has always formed a great portion in our upbringing. Sayyed was very keen to introduce us to God from a very young age. You see him using the carrot and stick method without frightening us from the Creator. He counted the graces of God to bring us to a reality that we should thank Him. He makes things closer to us. He tells us, for example, ‘God gave us all these blessings and created us in the best stature. The least of thanks to Him is prayer, which is the pillar of religion. Of course, this is for your benefit not mine. It has a lot of moral effects in this life and the hereafter.’”

His Eminence cites Hadiths of the Prophet (PBUH) to indicate the importance of prayer in cleansing the soul.

“One time in 1993, he gathered us and told us, ‘I will tell you something about prayer once.’ He pointed out that God Almighty created Paradise and Hell, and ‘you have minds to choose which path you want to take. I am not forcing anything on you. I am just telling you, if you want Paradise and God’s satisfaction, you must keep on praying. Prayer saves you from destruction. Worship, my children, depends on your will,’” Jawad recalls his father’s words.

“Since then, the importance of prayer has been firmly established in our minds and hearts – although we had not yet reached the age of discernment at the time. But the intelligent and endearing style of my father has yielded this result.”

God’s satisfaction is the standard and benevolence is half the mind

“Allah Almighty’s satisfaction should be the standard for any work we do. Our father raised us according to this phrase. According to His Eminence, the relationship with God is not only halal and haram. It also extends to helping people with their religion. We humans are made up of feelings and a soul. We have to understand people as much as possible,” Jawad said.

“Sayyed was always keen that his children should not be distinguished from other kids. It was one of his commandments.

For example, he always recommended that I have a car that keeps pace with other young people, since I am no better than them,” Jawad explains.

“Understanding people is a duty for Sayyed. He used to always remind us of the Prophet’s hadith: ‘My Lord commanded me to conform with people as he ordered me to perform obligatory prayers.’”

Reading is his hobby and Al-Ahed is his favorite team

What is Sayyed’s favorite hobby?

“Reading,” Jawad answers without hesitation. “There is no one faster than my father in reading. Personally, I am fast, but I do not have 10% of my father’s speed. Sayyed reads, understands and memorizes in one go.”

According to Jawad, Sayyed applies the scanning and skimming technique. It is reading based on techniques that use rapid eye movement and keywords to move quickly through the text. That is reading rapidly in order to get a general overview of the material. Sayyed surpasses all stages and can understand the book through the initial reading.

“As for the kinds of books, there is no specific type. Each period His Eminence chooses a particular type. For example, after 2000, I recall that he had read everything related to Imam Ali (PBUH). He has an awesome memorizing ability. Because of his great attachment to culture and his keenness to know everything, he once asked for my late aunt Zakiya’s books to read. She studied financial management and accounting at the Arab University.”

“His Eminence can multitask. I remember during the days of liberation, for example, I happened to see him at home. He was reading a report, talking on the phone, looking at me and looking at the news bar on television. Sayyed is really amazing,” says Jawad.

To describe how much he loves and cares about reading, Jawad tells us about one particular occurrence.

“Once before the war I joked with him and said, ‘If I brought a big pile of books and a pile of money, what would you take?’ He said to me without hesitation, ‘of course, the books.’ I asked why he wouldn’t choose the money? He told me ‘because it’s a pile of paper that comes and goes. It will not benefit me, while books are ammunition for me.’”

Here, Jawad names three things his father does not care much about: food, clothes and money.

“Sayyed is not picky when it comes to food. His Eminence is characterized by asceticism. He does not care about the money. Most of the time, he forgets where he put the salary envelope.”

From reading, Jawad moves to football. Sayyed follows the games from a distance and whenever he has time.

What is Sayyed’s favorite team?

Jawad says Sayyed roots for Al-Ahed sports team. “All of us in the family have been rooting for the yellow club since it became the star of the new era.”

Jawad points out that the nation’s concerns never leave Sayyed’s thoughts.

“On one occasion, my father and I were watching the World Cup. He asked me what flags two particular teams were playing under.

I told him, I am cheering for the team with the dark-skinned players who are playing against the other team from a country that promotes the Oslo agreement.

Of course, in general Sayyed is known for cheering for Brazil,” says Jawad.

Raising the grandchildren: “Beware not to beat them.”

“On the subject of raising children, Sayyed is very keen to pass on all the good qualities. We have to approach each child according to his age. He always commends that we improve our children’s education and behavior. ‘But don’t beat them as a form of discipline.’ He always repeats this commandment.”

“Regarding religion, we should make our children love religion and not repulse them. We have to show softness in places and the compassionate firmness in others. We should use favorable methods to consolidate the roots of faith in the minds and hearts of our children.

He calls on us to be patient and forgiving with children. For instance, even if a child does not get a good grade in a particular subject during the school year, we should talk to him/her in a good manner. We should not beat him/her, God forbid, or humiliate him/her. It is possible that he/she likes a certain subject.

He also always tells us to be honest with our children and never to lie to them even if it was to avoid a certain topic. This is unacceptable. Lying distorts the image of the parents in the eyes of the child. Thank God our father and mother taught us honesty above all.

As for playing, my father urges us to give our children their right to play and not to take their freedom away. Sayyed has 11 grandchildren. When we get together, things get loud like in any house with children. But none of us parents raise our voice to a child. Sayyed always commends that we let them play comfortably. When a child quarrels with another, he jokes, ‘Do you see this quarrel between these two children? This is the world on a microcosm.’”

Thanking the blessing

When Jawad is asked how he feels about being the son of a leader the crowd wishes to see, he smiles and says, “First I wish to be able to thank God for this blessing. I have always asked myself what good I did so that God rewarded me with this father.” On the other hand, Jawad speaks about the responsibility he carries as the son of Sayyed.

Sometimes he finds himself in the circle of lies and accusations. Being the son of Hezbollah’s secretary general, he is always required to make justifications.

“Sometimes I read articles and I do not know myself in them,” he says. “They put us in the form of their thoughts and demons. They accuse us of lies and slander just because we are Sayyed’s children or we belong to this person.”

Jawad seems indifferent to abandoning so many things for his father’s sake. “When we understand very well that the pride we have was made with the blood of the martyrs or when we look at the families who gave more than one child [as martyrs], perhaps all the worldly things are diminished before us and we are ashamed because we are still alive,” he said.

Jawad tries to clarify. “I cannot build my life on my father’s back. He is the one who gave to God Almighty and is sincere with Him and not me. So, God rewarded him.

This makes me value my father’s efforts, which raised me and taught me and did not fall short towards me. More importantly, he introduced me to God. After all this, how should I repay this kindness with offense or gratitude? When he meets us with all this kindness and love, how do we repay it? Is the reward for good [anything] but good?” Jawad concludes.

The discussion about His Eminence goes on and on, and it may take many parts to talk about a figure characterized by all of man’s bright and exemplary traits, and a leader who is always present in his supporters’ thoughts. He lives among them even though they only see him on screen.

In the second part, we will discuss several points, most notably:

– Sayyed and the honorable people

– This is how Sayyed Nasrallah follows social media

– The secret behind “I promise you victory always”

According to the Syrian News Agency (SANA), the bodies of martyrs were unearthed from an area located at the entrance of Khan Sheikhoun city near al-Salam checkpoint, and they were conveyed to the military hospital to deliver them to their relatives.

“The military personnel were martyred during battles with terrorists groups in 2015 and they were buried by their comrades as it was difficult to convey them then,” a source told the agency’s correspondent.

Earlier today, a mass grave containing bodies of military personnel was discovered in al-Lattamneh town in the northern countryside of Hama.

Even in Martyrdom, They Refused to be Apart: Hassan and Yasser

August 26, 2019


Sara Taha Moughnieh

Hassan Youssef Zbeeb and Yasser Ahmad Daher are two names that were destined not to be forgotten neither by the resistance supporters nor by the Israeli enemy.

Hassan and Yasser’s martyrdom drew new equations first because of the martyrdom itself and second because it came in concurrence with the Israeli breach to Lebanon’s sovereignty after a surveillance drone fell in the Southern Suburb of Beirut (Dahiyeh).

Another significant trace in these two young men was their everlasting childhood friendship that impressed everyone who heard about it.

Hassan, from Nabatieh, born in 1996, and Yasser from Blida village, born in 1997, got martyred after an Israeli rocket targeted their residence in Damascus Saturday midnight while they were performing their duty.

They are both engineering students who have been friends since childhood as they went to the same school (Al-Mahdi Shahed) to later attend the same university in Iran and join the same program (Civil engineering at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad).

They are both sons of employees in Al-Manar TV channel, too.

“Everyone who knew them admired their friendship, if you invited one of them for an outing no need to invite the other because he will definitely be there… They used to come together during the summer vacation to Lebanon and stay side by side… To later rise together to the heavens as matyrs with the fire of the Israeli enemy…” one of their friends wrote on Facebook shortly after their martyrdom.

Another person wrote: “when one of Hassan’s friends heard about his martyrdom, he immediately tried to contact Yasser to check the news since they were always together… He did not know that Yasser also wouldn’t answer.”

A significant post on Facebook with the pictures of the two Martyred friends said: “I will only enter it (heaven) if you were with me…. I agree,” in reference to the pact of brotherhood that is usually vowed on Al Ghadeer day, which was only a couple of days before their martyrdom.

He also appeared in a video posted on Facebook saying: “We are part of those people who sacrificed. This path will only continue with the blood of the martyrs and hopefully we are promised with victory, a victory that we have to pay its price. Nothing comes without a price and this is a great blessing, the blessing of allegiance and martyrdom…”Yasser’s father was quoted as saying to Hassan’s father as he was offering him condolences: “Did you see? Even in martyrdom they refused to be apart!”

Hassan and Yasser left as we are getting close to Ashura. Their bloodshed was a truthful pledge of allegiance to the path of Imam Hussein (as) and this year their condolence was the most generous of all.

The corpses of the two martyrs were taken to Sayyeda Zeinab shrine Sunday for their last visit and brought to Lebanon to be buried in Al-Hawraa Zeinab cemetery in the Southern Suburb of Beirut on Monday.

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah mourned the two martyrs on Sunday and reassured that he will implement the vow he made after the Qunaitra attack in 2015 to avenge for any attack or harm the Israeli inflicts on any of Hezbollah’s members.

Sayyed Nasrallah assured that Zionist PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that he targeted an Iranian military base in Damascus was a lie and that the location targeted was for Hezbollah, thus he addressed the “Israeli” saying: “Stand on the wall, one leg up, and wait for our response, it might take a day or two or three or four.” He also assured the Israelis that “what happened yesterday will not remain unanswered and Netanyahu is preparing for an election on the price of your blood, he is bringing war to you from all sides.”

Zionist media said the IOF Spokesperson’s Unit has released “detailed information” on Monday morning on the two Lebanese fighters.

They boasted that the IOF have published pictures of the two on board a flight to Iran “to take part in one of the training sessions.” However, the picture was being circulated publicly and Hassan and Yasser have shared it in the past on their Facebook accounts after one of their flights to Iran for studying.

Al-Ahed Publishes Photo of Self-Sacrifice Martyr Assad Berro with Hezbollah Secretary General on Op’s Anniversary

By Staff

Self-sacrifice Martyr Sheikh Assad Berro was born on the 26th of February 1965. He grew up in the Ouzai region with his parents in a surrounding of simplicity and honesty. He enjoyed good-manners.

Self-sacrifice martyr Sheikh Assad Berro with Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah – Al-Ahed News Archive


The martyr finished his academic studies in the Charity school in Burj al-Barajneh and graduated. He chose political sciences as major at University. In 1984, he started pursuing his religious studies, and soon he joined the resistance to fight the “Israeli” enemy.

At a young age, martyr Berro was concerned of applying good manners, and being good to others. He always commemorated Ashura and Imam Hussein’s calamity, and recited the Quran and supplications.

Martyr Berro was kind-hearted, known for his ethics and high spirits. He also did good deeds for the sake of God the Almighty; he was kind to the poor, young and old.

He was pretty much fond of great spiritual leaders like late Imam Khomeini, and put a lot of effort to learn religion through attending lectures and seminars.

Martyr Assad also worked in a glass store to make a living and to disguise his work as a resistance fighter in presence of the usurper “Israeli” enemy. He took part in several resistance operations. Then, he took permission to execute his own operation, which was postponed three times due to circumstances.

On Tuesday, the 9th of August 1989, a huge “Israeli” convoy approached to the Marjeyoun region. Martyr Assad was waiting for it. He raided the convoy with his small pick-up full of explosives, and the convoy was shredded into pieces.



In the name of Allah the most Gracious, most Merciful,
“Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah: of them some have completed their vow (to the extreme), and some (still) are waiting: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least.” {The Clans (Al-Ahzaab): 23}

My dear brothers and sisters:

… The ninth out of the ten who have been true to their covenant to Allah departs for the sake of Allah. After Mohammad Hassouna… Assi and Mahmoud departed, and then the Mufti followed by Ahmed, then Jawad, Jaafar, and Hasan, and now it is the turn of the ninth to depart, for Allah has accepted me, so praise be to Him for this grace…

I grieve because I am not with you…

As I’m preparing for my coming operation, and you know that my character is similar to those eight, I don’t linger and I don’t cower, but the conditions have been harsh on me, so I ask everyone to accept my excuse…

I love every one of you…

… I entrust you to stay away from following your desires and having interest in worldly pleasures. If you have the desire to meet Allah, you have to free yourself from such attachments and from your ego, set yourself free in Allah’s wide world, and struggle for His sake on the path of the Leader who followed the path of the Supreme Leader, the great Imam Khomeini, who drew for us the path of jihad and taught us to move confidently, because he said: “Move confidently and be certain that you are under the protection of the source of power who is Allah the Exalted“… so move freely to work for the sake of Allah based on that “So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith” {The Family of Imraan (Aal Imraan): 139}.

Purify yourselves from all the devilish illusions that are fabricated by Satan and his soldiers…

I ask everyone for forgiveness…

Peace be upon you, Allah’s mercy and blessings.

Your poor brother

Some of the Tales of Patience & Victory

By His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Akram Barakat *

During the brutal Zionist aggression against Lebanon in July 2006, His Eminence Sheikh Akram Barakat was on a special mission to Syria.

The mission covered more than one dossier, including following up on the issue of the displaced. He was keen on looking after the people of resistance in the home of the resistance. His Eminence took honorable stances that must be recorded, remembered and used as a lesson. He chose to talk to Al-Ahed news about some of those. They begin with the following:

They will triumph, not the Ummah

In the middle of the July 2006 war, the decision was made to meet His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Mohammed Said al-Bouti.

Sheikh al-Bouti’s home in Damascus was not on the ground floor. It was a few stories higher. So it was necessary to climb an old staircase in a small building. We didn’t have to take the stairs because there was no electricity. There was no power outage – the sort we are used to in Lebanon. But we took the stairs because there was no elevator in that building.

Sheikh al-Bouti and one other gentleman received me in his small, modest reception room, welcoming me with his usual smile. One of his sons was with him. He had inherited his father’s kind features and calmness.

I began by thanking him for his supportive attitude towards the resistance, which stems from the purity of the heart and foresight. I made a distinction between him and the Saudi Sheikh Ibn al- Uthaymeen, who at that time forbade prayers for the resistance. The sheikh told me about his position on Shia Muslims as a Sunni scholar who was committed to what he believes.

He surprised me when he asked:

Do Shiites have a special project contrary to what they declare, as many claim, and therefore their motive does not stem from loyalty to Allah Almighty?

Suddenly the voice of the sheikh shuddered. His facial features changed, and as if talking to himself aloud, he said:

Image result for ‫منزل الشيخ البوطي‬‎

I wonder where Sayed Hassan is now?

Is it possible that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is unfaithful?

Is it right for me – a person sitting comfortably on this couch – to be wondering about his sincerity, while he is now on the battlefield?

I wonder where Sayed Hassan is now?

The old sheikh started crying, shedding tears. His son had to intervene to calm him down from that sincere, innate and emotional outburst.

But the Sheikh continued his speech. Shedding tears, with the hoarseness in his voice and the trembling of his slim body, he said,

I do not know! Perhaps during his speech, he remembered Sayyed’s finger that gave the latter power while moving it during the Takbeer of Ihram [the utterance of Allahu akbar in prayer]. This power made the enemy tremble when he [Sayyed Nasrallah] waves his finger during his speeches. This finger is the Finger of Tawheed, the finger of threat, the finger of Tawalli and the finger of Tabbari. It is the finger of eminence and beauty.

The old scholar was not satisfied with mere words, but expressed his wish to meet Sayyed in a special meeting to kiss the grip of power, which is purified by the ablution of the knowledgeable, and the hand holding the sword that is defending the nation.

He replied: O Sheikh Said, since the beginning of this war, I have been repeating a special prayer for the victory of the resistance. Rejoice Sheikh Said. They will triumph, and not the Ummah,” Sheikh al-Bouti continued saying while shedding sincere tears.

After that, we bid the old Sheikh farewell. He made us feel ashamed because he refused to bid us farewell from his home. He walked us to the car despite his old age and his great stature, not to mention the added difficulty of going up and down the stairs without an elevator.

This was the degree of his morality. This is his love for Sayyed. The latter was deeply affected when I told him what happened in Damascus.

When I heard about the martyrdom of Sheikh al-Bouti while giving a religious lesson in a mosque, I was not surprised. After all, martyrdom suits him.

From Sayyed Hassan to Sayyed Hassan

A Syrian woman in her 70s went to a center for the Islamic Resistance Support Association. She opened her bag and took out a large swath of money in Syrian currency. She gave it to the representative of the Association, saying: “This is a donation for the Islamic Resistance.”

The representative was surprised by this amount of money, as the woman did not look rich. He could not help himself and asked her the reason behind her donation. She replied confidently and calmly:

“Today I received my full pension, and I came to donate it to the resistance. It deserves it more than me.”

The representative of the association was surprised by what she said. That act made him emotional as he listened to her near the blessed Sayyeda Zainab shrine. Holding his pen, he asked the honorable lady:

“Would you kindly tell me your name so I can write it down on the receipt of the donation?”

She replied with pride:

“Write, From Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.”

Our women are in the service of your women

I was contacted by a Syrian deputy from the People’s Council. He asked me to come to one of the buildings in al-Sham. He mentioned that these buildings were allocated for the families of the Mujahideen in the Islamic Resistance.

I arrived with the deputy and toured a new building, which was equipped with modern furniture. To my surprise, a cinema was set up, a cafeteria filled with things children love, and a prayer room equipped with clay tablets [Turbah] for prostration [sajda].

The ‘Sunni’ deputy carried the sajda tablet towards me and asked: Are these good?

What surprised me more is what I saw next-door to that building. There was a small playground for children. Alongside it was a Shawarma restaurant.

As we left the building, I noticed a few buses. The deputy told me that they were in the service of the Mujahideen’s families whenever they wished to travel to Damascus.

I thanked the deputy, asking him to convey my thanks to the person who came up with this idea and kind initiative. His answer was: This initiative is the least we can do for the families of the Mujahideen who are fighting the “Israeli” enemy in Lebanon and defend the whole nation. We hope to make the children of the Mujahideen and their wives comfortable, including in matters related to services. We do not want the wives of the Mujahideen to tire themselves, so “our women will serve the women of the men of God.”

I am one of those women

Hours after the resounding victory of the July war, the Iranian ambassador to Damascus called me to ask me to attend a political celebration in the Syrian capital on the occasion of this divine victory. I arrived to the hall and found that it was filled with diverse political figures from more than one Arab and Islamic country.

His Eminence Sheikh al-Akhtari, the veteran Iranian Ambassador, informed me of the program of the celebration. The program included a speech by the Minister of Awqaf in Syria and another by the General Mufti. He asked me to speak on behalf of the Islamic Resistance and the Islamic Republic of Iran. I thought quickly about what was appropriate to say in this forum, and I thought that the speech should be about the culture of the resistance, which is what made this great divine victory possible. During my speech, I recalled some of the moments I experience in al-Sham with the beloved Syrian people during the war. One of the things I mentioned was my aforementioned exchange with the Syrian deputy who told me: “We do not want the wives of the Mujahideen to tire themselves, so our women will serve the wives of the resistance fighters.”

When the ceremony ended, many of the attendees came to congratulate me. One of the attendees was a middle-aged woman. She told me with tears in her eyes: “I am a deputy in the Syrian People’s Council. And I was one of those women you spoke about. I had the honor of serving the wives of the resistance fighters.”

بعضٌ من حكايا الصبر والنصر

Image result for ‫منزل الشيخ البوطي‬‎

بقلم سماحة الشيخ الدكتور أكرم بركات*

خلال العدوان الصهيوني الغاشم على لبنان في تموز 2006، كان سماحة الشيخ أكرم بركات حاضرًا في سوريا على مدار الأيام، في مهمّة غاية في التميّز، ترتبط بأكثر من ملف، بينها متابعة شؤون النازحين هناك، فكان حريصًا على أهل المقاومة في ديار المقاومة. وكانت لسماحة الشيخ مشاهدات مشرِّفة، لا بد من تدوينها، واستذكارها، لتكون درسًا وعِبرة، خص موقع “العهد” الإخباري بها، ومن هنا تبدأ:

* هم سينتصرون وليس الأمّة

في منتصف حرب تموز/ يوليو من العام 2006 كان القرار بلقاء سماحة العلامة الشيخ د. محمد سعيد البوطي.

لم يكن المنزل الدمشقي للشيخ البوطيّ متاخمًا للأرض، بل كان يرتفع عنها بضعة طوابق، لذا كان لا بدّ من الصعود على الدّرجات القديمة لذلك المبنى الصّغير، لا لانقطاع التيّار الكهربائيّ، كما اعتدنا في لبنان، بل لعدم وجود مصعد في تلك البناية.

مع أحد السّادة الأجلاء استقبلني الشيخ البوطيّ في صالونه الصّغير المتواضع مرحِّبًا بابتسامته المعهودة وإلى جانبه أحد أبنائه، وقد ورث من أبيه ملامح الطّيبة، وهدوء النفس.

الشيخ البوطي رحمه الله:

هل من الصحيح أن أتساءلَ ـ أنا الجالس المرتاح على هذه الكنبة ـ عن إخلاصه، بينما هو الآن في ساحة الحرب؟

ابتدأتُ الكلام بشكره على موقفه الداعم للمقاومة، المنطلق من طهارة قلب، وبصيرة عقل، مميّزًا بينه وبين الشيخ ابن عثيمين السعودي الذي حرّم في ذلك الوقت الدعاء للمقاومة.

بادرني الشيخ بالحديث عن موقفه من المسلمين الشيعة، بوصفه عالماً سُنّياً متمسّكًا بما يعتقده، وفاجأني بطرحه لتساؤل لديه:

هل للشيعة مشروع خاصّ، خلاف ما يُعلنون، كما يُروِّج لذلك الكثيرون، وبالتالي، لا ينطلقون من دافع الاخلاص لله عزّ وجلّ؟

فجأة تلجلج صوت الشيخ، وتغيَّرت معالم وجهه، وأخذ يقول، كمن يتحدث مع نفسه بصوت عال:

هل يعقل أن يكون السيّد حسن نصر الله غير مُخْلِص؟

هل من الصحيح أن أتساءلَ ـ أنا الجالس المرتاح على هذه الكنبة ـ عن إخلاصه، بينما هو الآن في ساحة الحرب؟

ترى أين يكون الآن السيد حسن؟

وأخذ الشيخ العجوز يبكي ذارفاً دموعاً كثيرة، ما استدعى نجله لأن يتدخَّل لتهدئته من نوبة تلك العاطفة الفطريّة الصادقة.

لكن الشيخ أكمل حديثه، مع ذرف الدموع، وبحة الصوت، وارتجاف الجسم النحيف:

“يا ليتني إصبعٌ من جسد السيّد حسن”.

Image result for ‫اصبع السيد حسن‬‎

لا أدري، لعلّه كان يتذكّر أثناء كلامه اصبع السيد الذي منحته حركته في تكبيرة الإحرام قوةً أصبح العدوّ يرتجف منه حينما يلوِّح به في خطبه، فهو إصبع التوحيد، وإصبع التهديد، هو إصبع التولي، وإصبع التبري، هو إصبع الجمال، وإصبع الجلال.

Image result for ‫اصبع السيد حسن‬‎

لم يكتف العالم المسنّ بتلك الكلمة، بل أردف معبِّرًا عن أمنيته في مقابلة السيِّد بلقاء خاص ليلثم قبضة القوّة، المطهَّرة بوضوء العارف، القابضة على زند السيف المدافع عن الأمّة.

وأكمل الشيخ البوطيّ حديثه، اللابس هذه المرّة معطف الصوفيّ، غير منقطع عن ذرف الدموع الصادقة التي اغتسلت بها روح هذا العالم السنّي، حتى أضحى صفوان أملس، لم تستطع أمطار المذهبيّة أن تستقرّ فيه، فقال:

“أنا، منذ بداية هذه الحرب، سافرت إلى حمص قاصداً أحد الأولياء الصالحين، وطلبت منه أن يدعو للمقاومة في لبنان، فإذا به يجيبني: يا شيخ سعيد، منذ بداية هذه الحرب أردّد وردًا خاصّاً لأجل انتصار المقاومة، أبشر يا شيخ سعيد، إنّهم سينتصرون وليس الأمّة”.

بعدها ودّعنا الشيخ بما أخجلنا، فهو لم يرتضِ إلا بتشييعنا من طابقه العلويّ إلى السيارة التي أقلّتنا، رغم سنّه الكبيرة، ومقامه الجليل، وصعوبة النزول والصعود بلا مصعد كهربائيّ.

إنها أخلاقه، إنها محبّته للسيّد الذي تأثّر أيّمَا تأثّر حينما رويت له ما جرى في هذا المشهد الشاميّ.

حينما سمعتُ بخبر شهادة الشيخ البوطيّ وهو يلقي درسه في بيت الله لم أتفاجأ؛ فمن كانت تلك مواقفه، تليق به هذه الخاتمة.


*من السيد حسن إلى السيد حسن

أقبلت امرأة سوريّة في العقد السابع من العمر إلى مركز هيئة دعم المقاومة الإسلامية، فتحت حقيبتها التي كانت تحملها، وأخرجت منها كميةً كبيرةً من المال بالعملة السوريّة، وأعطتها لمندوب الهيئة، قائلة:

“هذا تبرّع للمقاومة”.

اكتب: “من السيّد حسن نصر الله، إلى السيّد حسن نصر الله”

تفاجأ الأخ المندوب من تلك الكميّة من المال، في حين أنّ المرأة لا يبدو عليها الثّراء، ولم يستطع صبراً على حديث نفسه، فسألها عن سرّ ذلك، فأجابت بثقة وهدوء: “اليوم قبضت كامل راتبي التقاعدي، وقد جئت أتبرّع به للمقاومة، فهي أحقّ به مني”. اندهش مندوب الهيئة من كلامها، وكادت العبرة أن تخنقه، وهو يستمع إليها قرب المشهد الزينبيّ المبارك. سألها وهو يحمل قلمه ليكتب على إيصال هيئة الدعم اسم تلك المرأة الشريفة، قال لها: هل تتفضّلين عليّ بذكر الاسم الكريم لأكتبه على ايصال التبرّع، فأجابته بعزّة وشموخ:

اكتب: “من السيّد حسن نصر الله، إلى السيّد حسن نصر الله”.

* نساؤنا بخدمة نسائكم

اتصل بي نائب سوريّ في مجلس الشعب يطلب منّي الحضور إلى أحد المباني الشاميّة التي ذكر لي أنّها خُصّصت لإقامة عوائل المجاهدين في المقاومة الإسلاميّة.

وصلت إلى هناك، وقمت مع النائب بجولة في ذلك المبنى الجديد الذي جُهِّز بأثاث حديث، وما فاجأني فيه تخصيص قاعدة سينما، وكافيتيريا مملوءة بما يحبّه الأطفال، ومصلّىً وضعت فيه أقراص ترابية للسّجود عليها.

حمل النائب “السنّي” قرص سجدة، وأدناه مني سائلاً: هل هذه “السجدات” جيّدة؟!

وما زاد مفاجأتي ما رأيته إلى جانب المبنى من ساحة تشكّل مدينة صغيرة لألعاب الأطفال، وإلى جانبها أدوات مطعم مخصّصة للطعام المعروف بـ “الشّاورما”.

قمنا بتنظيم وترتيب كل ما يوفِّر الرّاحة لأطفال المجاهدين وزوجاتهم، حتى الأمور المتعلقة بالخدمة، لا نريد لزوجات المجاهدين أن يرهقن أنفسهنّ

وعند خروجنا من ذلك المبنى التفتُّ إلى وجود بضعة “باصات” أخبرني النائب أنّها بخدمة عوائل المجاهدين حينما يريدون التنقّل داخل دمشق.

شكرتُ سعادة النائب طالباً منه أن ينقل شكري إلى صاحب الفكرة والرعاية لهذه المبادرة الطيّبة، فكان جوابه:

إنّ هذه المبادرة هي أقلّ واجب نقوم به مع عوائل المجاهدين الذين يقاتلون هذه الأيّام العدوّ الإسرائيلي في لبنان، ويدافعون عن الأمّة جمعاء، وقد قمنا بتنظيم وترتيب كل ما يوفِّر الرّاحة لأطفال المجاهدين وزوجاتهم، حتى الأمور المتعلقة بالخدمة، لا نريد لزوجات المجاهدين أن يرهقن أنفسهنّ، لذا فـ “نساؤنا سيخدِمْنَ نساء رجال المقاومة”.

* أنا من هؤلاء النساء

بعد النّصر المدوّي في حرب تمّوز بساعات اتّصل بي سفير الجمهورية الإسلاميّة الإيرانيّة في دمشق طالباً منّي الحضور إلى احتفال سياسيّ في دمشق بمناسبة هذا النصر الإلهيّ. وصلت إلى القاعة فوجدتُها ممتلئة بحضور سياسيّ متنوّع من أكثر من بلد عربي وإسلاميّ.

أطلعني سماحة الشيخ الأختريّ، السّفير الإيرانيّ المخضرم، على برنامج الاحتفال، وأن فيه كلمة لوزير الأوقاف في سوريا، وكلمة للمفتي العام فيها، طالباً أن يكون لي كلمة باسم المقاومة الإسلاميّة والجمهوريّة الإسلاميّة الإيرانيّة معاً. فكّرتُ سريعاً بما هو مناسب للحديث في هذا المحفل، فخطر في بالي أن تكون الكلمة حول ثقافة المقاومة التي صنعت هذا الانتصار الربّاني الكبير. وأثناء كلمتي استحضرتُ بعضاً من المشاهد الشاميّة التي عايشتها مع الشعب السوري الحبيب أثناء الحرب، وذكرتُ من بين تلك المشاهد ما تقدّم ذكره من قول ذلك النائب السوريّ لي:

“لا نريد لزوجات المجاهدين أن يرهقن أنفسهنّ، لذا فنساؤنا سيخدمن نساء رجال المقاومة”.

وحينما انتهى الاحتفال أقبل العديد من الحاضرين لتهنئتي، ومن جملتهم أقبلت امرأة متوسّطة في العمر، وقالت لي، والدموع تُذرف من عينيها:”

أنا نائب في مجلس الشعب السوري، وأنا كنت من أولئك النساء اللواتي تحدّثت عنهن، كان لي شرف أن أكون في خدمة نساء رجال المقاومة”.

S. Nasrallah: Israeli Brigades to Be Destroyed in Lebanon, I Felt Pity for Saudi King!

S. Nasrallah: Israeli Brigades to Be Destroyed in Lebanon, I Felt Pity for Saudi King!

Marwa Haidar

السيد نصر الله خلال كلمته بمناسبة الذكرى الثالثة لاستشهاد القائد مصطفى بدر الدين

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Thursday vowed that the Israeli brigades which will enter Lebanon will be destroyed before the eyes of the entire world.

During a ceremony held on the third anniversary of martyrdom of Hezbollah senior military commander, Mustafa Badreddine, Sayyed Nasrallah dismissed Israeli threats of launching a war against Lebanon, stressing that such threats come in context of a campaign aimed at intimidating Lebanon and its people.

Sayyed Nasrallah also warned that ISIL still poses threat in the region despite the fact that it was over as a ‘caliphate’ and a state, stressing that the Takfiri terrorist group has for years served the goals of the US, ‘Israel’ and other enemies.

Elsewhere in his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah said he felt pity for the Saudi King Salman who was mocked by US President Donald Trump earlier this week.

Hezbollah S.G. meanwhile said that the resistance in Lebanon becomes day after another more certain that the decision to go into Syria was rightful.

Regarding Shebaa Farms, Sayyed Nasrallah said that as long as the Lebanese state says that the territory is Lebanese then the resistance bears the responsibility to liberate it from the Israeli occupation.

Martyr Badreddine’s Virtues

Talking about the occasion, Sayyed Nasrallah praised the commander Mustafa Badreddine as one of the first resistance fighters who confronted the Israeli enemy in Lebanon.

Stressing on the importance of recalling the virtues of resistance martyrs, especially those who worked behind the scenes due to security reasons, Sayyed Nasrallah said martyr Badreddine was faithful, smart who was in the ranks of resistance from his early life and sacrificed himself for the sake of this path.

Sayyed Nasrallah also said that one of martyr Badreddine’s virtues was his enthusiasm and persistence in defending his country and the rightful affairs in the region and theworld.

In this context, his eminence said that Sayyed Mustafa Badreddine was known for being concerned about the Israeli occupation of Lebanon and Palestine, as well as other rightful issues.

“This was at a time when the atmosphere in Lebanon was that any individual cares only for his sect and small group, not for a whole nation,” Sayyed Nasrallah elaborated.

“Sayyed Zoulfiqar believed in victory and defeating the enemy, he didn’t feel afraid of the enemy in both Lebanon and Syria. He repeatedly managed to achieve victory from simple and modest capabilities,” Sayyed Nasrallah said referring to Badreddien’s Nom de guerre.

His eminence also said that the heroic operation in which the resistance ambushed and killed many Israeli soldiers in the southern coastal town of Ansariya in 1997 was one of Badreddine’s achievements.

Sayyed Nasrallah in this context said that there are a lot of resistance fighters who have the spirit of martyr Badreddine.

Threats of War

Sayyed Nasrallah then responded to US, European and some Gulf states’ remarks on the possibility of Israeli war on Lerbanon. His eminence stressed that such remarks come as part of intimidation campaign aimed at exerting pressure on the Lebanese government in order to offer concessions.

“Such intimidation is to wage a psychological war on political, diplomatic and media level in a bid to press the Lebanese government, officials and people in order to offer concessions,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, referring to US officials remarks on Lebanon’s land and maritime borders.

“O Lebanese don’t allow any side to intimidate you. You are not weak. Lebanon has a real power,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the Lebanese people as saying.

“Despite our points of weakness, the resistance’s readiness has not been affected despite the harsh sanctions imposed against us.”

“I won’t talk, nether about Haifa and ammonia, nor about the resistance rocket arsenal. There is a major development, which is the occupation of Galilee. Israel doesn’t dare to get into besieged Gaza… Will it dare to get into Lebanon?” Sayyed Nasrallah wondered.

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated a previous promise of wiping out the Israeli enemy in case of a future war by saying: “On the third anniversary of Sayyed Badreddine’s martyrdom we reiterate our promise that all Israeli brigades which will enter Lebanon will be destroyed before the eyes of mainstream media and the entire world.”

Shebaa Farms

Talking about Shebaa Farms, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah Stance regarding the issue, stressing that the territory is Lebanese one and that Hezbollah is committed to what the Lebanese government announces about the issue.

“The Lebanese government says that the territory is Lebanese and it is occupied… Then the resistance is committed to liberate it.” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Rightfulness of Syria Engagement and ISIL

On the other hand, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “Day after another, Hezbollah becomes certain that his decision to go into Syria was rightful in the time and the place.”

“How could ISIL control 40 percent of Syria and half of Iraq?” Sayyed Nasralah wondered, stressing that the Takfiri group is nothing but a puppet created by the Wahhabi ideology by Saudi money and American decision.”

Sayyed Nasrallah noted meanwhile that the plan was that ISIL control Syria, Iraq, then Lebanon and then Iran and all those who confront the US-Israeli scheme in the region.

Sayyed Nasrallah meanwhile, noted that most of promises made by US President Donald Trump during his election campaign were kept, especially those regarding the so-called ‘deal of century’ and ‘milking’ Saudi Arabia.

His eminence warned that ISIL’s role has not been over yet, noting that the Takfiri group still poses threat in the region despite the fact that it was ended as a ‘caliphate’ and as a ‘state’.

Sayyed Nasrallah referred here to series of terrorist attacks carried out by ISIL in Sri Lanka, wondering: “Has anyone asked who funded this ideology which carried out the attacks in Sri Lanka? Isn’t it Saudi Arabia?”

Trump and Saudi

Sayyed Nasrallah on the other hand, denounced the latest executions by Saudi regime of 37 activists, including 32 Shiites.

“What is the crime committed by these people? They are executed just for taking part in peaceful protests or writing their opinion on social media.”

Sayyed Nasrallah slammed international community over their shy reactions over these executions.

“We have to understand that the world which we live in today is knows neither international laws nor morals.”

His eminence also slammed the Saudi King for not preserving his dignity in front of Trump, referring to latest remarks by Trump about King Salman.

“I hate King Salman, but really I felt pity for him when I heard Trump talking in that way.”

“The $450 bn which Trump said he was offered by Saudi Arabia… this money is for Saudi and Muslim people. Al Saud has no right to give them to US.”

Sayyed Nasrallah then cited an acknowledgment by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who confessed of lying and fooling while working for the CIA.

“This means that he is a liar, cheat and a robber.”
