Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed Sunday that the Islamic Resistance of Lebanon is engaged on the Syrian front in order to deter the U.S., Zionist and Takfiri hegemony.
During his speech on the 8th eve of Hijri month of Muharram at Sayyed Al-Shuhada complex in the southern suburbs of capital Beirut, Sayyed Nasrallah replied to those who are linking the ongoing events in the region to the signs of Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (as) – the twelfth Imam of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) household, referred to as “Ahlulbait (as)”.
“We do not need a religious plea to fight in Syria. We do not fight in order to match the signs that are being circulated as a prelude to Reappearance,” his eminence said.
“Yet, we are fighting (in Syria) in order to defend Lebanon and the region, and so as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi would not repeat in Lebanon what he have done against the Iraqi tribe of Abu Nemr,” he underlined.
Sayyed Nasrallah, moreover, warned that relating the ongoing regional events to the signs of Reappearance “has serious cultural and intellectual dangers which only lead to delusion, and the evidences that some authors are talking about in this context are based on suspicions and probabilities.
