Iraqi cleric urges Muslims to stand against terrorism



“When standards of values and character of Muslims are weakened, they will witness many difficulties evaluating the truth,” Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Ahmad al-Safi underlined, Taqrib News Agency (TNA) quoted Rasa as saying.
The representative of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani added, “people should know that property, rank or office are not human values but rather the performance of righteous actions are valuable.”

Referring to the importance of charity, Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi said, “Money and property also become valuable when they are given as gifts and charity to others. Money is valuable when it is spent in the way of God, not when they are accumulated and hoarded.”

“We are now witnessing the charity of people to the fighters on the front lines of the battle of truth against falsehood,” the Iraq cleric highlighted.

His Eminence added no charity better than spending one’s wealth to support those fighting against terrorism.

Hujjat al-Islam al-Safi noted the example of Korah, who was a rich Israelite at the time of Moses who became very arrogant due to his pride and ignorance over his wealth, and said he represents the authorities who collected money and wealth unlawfully and committed fraud against the people.
