Islam is the Complete Way of Life. -Sayyid Mahdi Naaji

Sayyid Mahdi Naaji from the holy shrine of imam Ridha (AS) began his speech with promising the attendants that if he go back to the holy Shrine he will perform a two supererogatory prayers on their behalf, and forwarded with reminding them of the up coming Ghadeer event and it’s significant, the event in which the holy prophet appointed his successor in the presence of hundred of thousands pilgrims, then the holy prophet (SAWA) commanded that those that are presence should convey the message to the absentees, a father should tell his children.
In the other aspect of his speech Sayyid Mahdi Naaji says if truly we are Muslims then we should practice the religion anywhere, Islam is not for Husainiyya! Islam is not for Masjid! Islam is a total way of life. He furthermore lamented some of the worthiness of ziyarat with ma’arifa, and Ma’arifa as expressed by some of our imams is to understand the position of the imam, his position is that of the prophet, his knowledge is directly from Allah, he is the representative of Allah on earth, they are with their followers, we should belive that everything we do they are watching us, another important aspect of Ma’arifa is that we should obey their command, because their command is that of Allah (T) and to also visit their holy shrines. He added.
He also advice the attendees to know more about the sermon of Ghadeer, the sermon have so many parts, if some one may ask any of you the meaning of Shi’ah, just ask him to go and read the prophet’s sermon of Ghadeer, because it covered all the meaning of Shi’ah, he finally quoted some of the major parts of the sermon and prayed that May Allah protect us from the (Shaitanul Akbar) i.e America and Israel.
