Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslim Raeisi’s message is as follows:
In the name of God
Deaths and injuries of large number of Arbaeen mourners in Nigeria created a very deep regret and sadness.
Innocent Shi’ites of Nigeria have been excruciated by their arrogant rulers for several years. However, like their honorable leader, Sheikh Zakzaky, this people never gave up their resistance against these cruel rulers.
Nigeria’s recent terrorist attack which is in line with that of Samarra was another invasion supported by the Muslims’ enemies to, in their wishful delusions, vanish Ashura movement and make it off. However, these roots of evil and rancor have to know that such incidents will never stop great Muslim nations’ will for eternal fight against world’s arrogant powers and the bright route of our martyred lord, Imam Hussein (A.S.), and his 72 companions is the constant light of guidance for these glorious nations.
Condemning this painful incident, I want, from the vicinity of the Razavi Shrine, God to provide this incident’s martyrs and their families with high ranks and abundant reward and good patience respectively.
Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi,
Seyyed Ibrahim Raeisi
