The world is rapidly moving towards Husayn (‘a). Are you paying attention?
Nowadays, the environment is more powerful than during the wartime. The heat! The fire! No one can say anymore, “There was a special spiritual environment during the wartime.” Because, it is even more now. If you feel that the world is rapidly moving towards Husayn (‘a), you will be careful not to be left behind the caravan.
I remember the soldiers would sit in the truck and go forward with a special passion and love! Their whole world was in that truck, which was moving. On the other hand, there were cities, which were close to the front. And at times, a bomb would fall on one of them. A group of children from that city would be playing soccer in the streets there. At night, they would buy a bread and take it home. (They had a normal life.) But, they weren’t attracted to the war. They didn’t sense the war at all and weren’t attracted to it.
Nowadays, religious people talk about victory and God’s help very weakly. Sometimes, religious people start criticizing the authorities so much that they don’t see the very powerful and rapid process, which is moving towards victory.
If we look from above, we can easily understand that western civilization is collapsing. If you look at the good and bad points from above, you will see that after the revolution, the “right” has always won the battle completely. You will see things positively. If you feel that the world is rapidly moving towards Husayn (‘a), you will be careful not to be left behind the caravan. But, if you feel the world is moving away from Imam Husayn (‘a), you may become lethargic too.
When the mass retreat started in the Battle of Uhud, suddenly everyone retreated. The Prophet of God (s) was close to becoming martyred. If we look from above, we will be able to understand with our own mental calculation that Imam Husayn (‘a) will take over the world. If we look from above at the process of Aba Abdillah al-Husayn (‘a) becoming powerful in the hearts, we will feel how close we have gotten to the reappearance.
Husayn’s (‘a) caravan is moving rapidly! The most effective people see they are so small in Aba Abdillah al-Husayn’s system. When some people who read eulogies and have the most effective meetings come to Arba’een, they see that they are a drop in this sea. They try to hold the biggest gathering for eulogies, but it is small in comparison. 20 million people are saying “Husayn, Husayn” there and passing you by. Where are you in this story?
Friends, our loneliness is becoming resolved! Victories are happening one after another. We don’t know. According to the traditions, maybe Imam Mahdi (‘a.j.) will come overnight. “When there comes the help of Allah and the victory, and you see men entering the religion of Allah in companies...” (Qur’an 110:1, 2) Look from above and you will see the environment is inflamed. You will see the speed. Tomorrow you will suddenly say, “I didn’t play any role in the reappearance, which took place!”
