Ayatollah Shaykh Isa Qassim, the Bahraini member of the supreme counsel of the Ahl al-Bayt (a) World Assembly called for support of Wilayat al-faqih and said that the Leader of the Islamic Revolution is Hussain of the time.
In a speech among the people of Zanjan, on the occasion of Muharram, he said that the Islamic Iran enjoys the blessing of the leadership of Wilayat al-faqih today and assisting and observing his wilaya is [actually] assisting and observing the Wilaya of Imam al-Hussain (a).
In his speech, he said, “approaching ‘Ashura, our thought is drawn toward the importance of encircling a wise religious leadership which is desired by God; and in our time and during the Age of Occultation, this leadership becomes manifested in the leadership of a just, wise and competent faqih.”
He mentioned, “the Islamic Iran enjoys the blessing of the leadership of Wilayat al-faqih today; and supporting and assisting Islam is supporting and assisting him; and the sincerity in observing wilaya and submission to Imam al-Hussain (a) is solely proved in observing sincere wilaya of him [the Leader of the Islamic Revolution]. He is the Hussain who has stood against thousands of Yazid today.”
The Bahraini member of the supreme counsel of the Ahl al-Bayt (a) World Assembly said, “Muharram is a test for us whether we give allegiance to Hussain (a) or to Yazid? Whether our conduct is [like] that of Hussain (a) or Yazid? Hussain (a) was the friend of God and Yazid was a friend of Satan. Anyone who accepts the wilaya of Hussain (a) should also accept the wilaya of the one Husayn (a) consents about his leadership.Also, anyone who accepts wilaya of Yazid has actually entered the war with the wilaya of Hussain (a) and the wilaya of the one Hussain (a) accepts whose wilaya.”
