Bahraini cleric urges Muslims to stand by the nation



Prior to the sermon during this week’s Friday prayers in Qom, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Murtadha al-Sanadi, a Bahraini Shi’a cleric, made some remarks saying, “Bahrain is a small island, but is home to great men. they embraced Islam without any force or bloodshed and have always stayed on this path.”

The senior member of Bahrain’s al-Wafaa Islamic Party: added, “Bahrainis are true followers of the Ahlul-Bayt and some prominent Shi’a scholars rose up from among them.”

He said, “Despite Bahrain’s occupation by foreign military arms, the people of Bahrain seek recourse to God almighty and they resist against such foreign assaults. Today, the greatest religious leader in Bahrain is the subject of regime’s conspiracies, they have even revoked his citizenship and further forced him to take part in unfair trial sessions in court.”

Hujjat al-Islam al-Sanadi added, “Since the day Ayatollah Isa Qasim was convicted in an unfair court of law, the courageous Bahraini citizens have surrounded his home in order to defend and support him and if necessary, they are even willing to sacrifice their lives for him. So many people have been arrested ever since including twenty religious scholars. moreover, sixty other religious and scientific figures have been summoned to courts.”

In conclusion, Hujjat al-Islam al-Sanadi said, “Bahrainis are standing firm against the imperialists’ plots even though they are alone in their fight. They are calling the whole world saying, is there anybody to help us?”
