Commemoration of Sayyid Arif Husseini’s martyrdom

21 years ago Sayyid Arif Husseini’s face was covered in blood by the hands of the arrogant powers of the world.

 Arif Husseini had a high status who reached the high status of martyrdom because of the way he worship the True One.

 These were some of the words by Imam Khomeini about this great martyr.

 Arif Husseini was born into a pure family and started his Islamic studies after middle school in Pakistan.

 After he finished his preliminary Islamic studies he migrated to Najaf in order to complete them.

 Arif Husseini entered Najaf around the same time that Imam Khomeini was exiled there.

 He studied for some time under Ayatollah Madani and then was introduced through him to Imam Khomeini.

 Arif Husseini was attracted to the Imam from that first meeting and decided to fight to the death for him.

 Husseini’s struggles in Iraq caused him to be exiled from there. After he was exiled he returned to Pakistan and after a short while traveled to Qom. He benefited from the presence of Ayatollah Mutahhari, Ayatollah Wahid Khorasani, and others while living in Qom. He was also kicked out of Qom because of his movement and once again returned to Pakistan where he propagated Islam and Imam Khomeini’s thoughts. Three years before his martyrdom he was elected as the head of a large Shia organization which enabled him to spread revolutionary and religious thoughts quickly throughout Pakistan.

 This is why he was targeted and killed by the arrogant powers of the world who feared the progress that he was making.

 Please send a salawat on his soul.
