Seeking liberty and justice like Imam Hussain

These days, Iranian people are celebrating the 42th anniversary of the victory of Islamic revolution of Iran. They rose up against cruelty and injustice for at least 15 years with the God’s helps and through the leadership of a supreme leader, Imam Khomeini, the man who said this famous quote: “Imam Hussain (PBUH) taught us all how to stand up cruelty and the government of tyranny. “

Now Iranian people are still fighting against the arrogant powers who try to recolonize Iran and remake it a dependent country with no powers and of course with the right of capitulation for themselves like before the revolution!!! But these people still have the God’s helps and the leadership of Ayatullah Khamenei . Some other countries are also awakening seeking justice even the people of US. May God helps our brothers and sisters in everywhere.

It’s interesting that Imam Hussain (PBUH) is also a role model for seeking liberty and justice in Imam Khamenei’s view :

I made this image from a Imam khamenei’s speech which you can read it completely at here

“Today, Imam Hussain (a.s.) is known to the world more than he was 5 centuries, 10 centuries ago. Today the situation is as such that when impartial intellectuals learn about the history of Islam, and the story of Imam Hussain (a.s.), they feel humble. Even for those who do not know anything about Islam, yet they recognize the notions of freedom, justice, dignity, elevation, and lofty human values, Imam Hussain (PBUH) is an invaluable role model in seeking liberty and justice, in rising up against vices and evils as well as in fighting ignorance and humiliation of mankind.

– Imam Khamenei (Speech in April 14, 2000)

امروز بیش از پنج قرن و ده قرن پیش، حسین‌بن‌علىِ اسلام و شما، در دنیا شناخته شده است. امروز وضع به گونه‌ای است که متفکّران و روشنفکران و آنهایی که بیغرضند، وقتی به تاریخ اسلام بر میخورند و ماجرای امام حسین را میبینند، احساس خضوع میکنند. آنهایی که از اسلام سر در نمی‌آورند، اما مفاهیم آزادی، عدالت، عزّت، اعتلاء و ارزشهای والای انسانی را میفهمند، با این دید نگاه میکنند و امام حسین، امام آنها در آزادیخواهی، در عدالت‌طلبی، در مبارزه با بدیها و زشتیها و در مبارزه با جهل و زبونی انسان است.

(بیانات رهبر انقلاب، امام خامنه ای، درتاریخ 26 فروردین 1379)
