Be Fearless!

By using examples from Prophet Musa (a.s.), the Holy Prophet (S) and Imam Ali (a.s.), the Central Board of Education has launched it's sixth video entitled ' Be Fearless ' . This video illustrates the importance of why it is necessary that we change the state of our souls, from a state of fear to a state of fearlessness.

When Musa climbed Mount Sinai and approached the burning bush, He was expecting to encounter a fellow human being, but he encountered Allah himself. Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala reveals himself to Musa . In Surah 27, Verses 9-10; Allah says: "Ya Musa inahu an allah ul-anzeez ul-hakeem."(27:9) O Musa, I am Allah, the all powerful, the all knowing and then Allah (anza wa jal) teaches Musa the most important lesson when fighting against tyrants, He says: "Wa alqi ansaak, falama ra'aha tahtazu Ka'anaha jaanun wala mudbira wa lam yu'anqib."(27:10) Allah says to Musa; O Musa cast down your staff, when Musa saw that his staff had transformed into a running serpent, he turned away and he ran.

Allah says: "Ya Musa iniy la yakhafu laday al-mursaloon "(27:10) O Musa my messengers are never afraid in my presence to face against any tyrant to eradicate injustice requires fearlessness and courage. Imam Sajjad, alayhi assalam, when he was asked to explain the meaning of courage, he said in those famous lines:"Kalimatu haqin inda sultanin fajir." Courage is to speak the truth in the presence of a tyrant.

The Holy Prophet, sallalahu alayhi wa ali, and the sixty three years of his life he faced against the super powers of his time, and he was always on the front lines. He was the symbol of courage and fearlessness. Ali Ibn Abi Talib, the Lion of Allah describes the Holy Prophet in the following way, he says: "Kunna idha ahmarra al-ba'su walaqi al-qawm ul-qawm ittaqayna bi rasulillah fama yakunu ahadun aqraba ilal anduwi minh." Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib, he says: When fighting used to become intense and the two armies would clash, we would always seek refuge with the Holy Prophet and indeed no one was closer to the enemy than Rasul Allah.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib was the same because he grew up in the lap of Rasul Allah and Ali Ibn Abi Talib himself says "Wallah lawijtama't a-'arab ala qitali lama walaytu anha mudbiran." He says:" I swear by Allah that if all of the Arabs gathered to fight against me, I would not turn away and I would not run away. Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala in the Holy Qur'an has commanded all human beings to stand against injustice and tyranny in whatever form it may take.

And Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala says, In Surah number 13, Verse 11: "Inallaha la yughayiru ma bi qawmin hata yughayiru ma bi anfusihim."(13:11) Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change the condition of their souls. And that is why, my dear brothers and sisters, it is imperative that we change the state of our souls from a state of fear to a state of fearlessness.

We ask Allah Azza wa jal to fill our hearts with the courage of Prophets. Wa salallahu ala Muhammadin wa ali al-tahirin.
 

Quando Musa scalò il Monte Sinai e si avvicinò al cespuglio ardente, si aspettava di incontrare un altro essere umano, ma incontrò Allah in persona. Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala si rivela a Musa. In Surah 27, versetti 9-10, Allah dice: "Ya Musa inahu an Allah ul-aziz ul-hakim" (27:9) "Oh Musa! Io sono Allah, l'onnipotente, l'onnisciente".

Poi Allah (azza wa jal) insegna a Musa la lezione più importante quando si combatte contro i tiranni, Egli dice: "Wa alqi ansaak, falama ra'aha tahtazu Ka'anaha jaanun wala mudbira wa lam yu'anqib. "( 27:10) Allah dice a Musa: "Oh Musa! Getta il tuo bastone!" Quando Musa vede che il suo bastone si è trasformato in un serpente vivo si volge e fugge via.

Allah dice: "Ya Musa iniy la yakhafu laday al-mursalun" (27:10), "Oh Musa! In mia presenza i miei messaggeri non hanno mai paura di affrontare alcun tiranno. Sradicare l'ingiustizia richiede audacia e coraggio."

L'imam Al-Sajjad , alayhi assalam,, quando gli fu chiesto di spiegare il significato del coraggio, pronunciò le famose parole: "Kalimatu haqin inda sultanin fajir", "Il coraggio è dire la verità davanti a un tiranno".

Il santo Profeta (s) nei sessantatre anni della sua vita affrontò le superpotenze del suo tempo e fu sempre in prima linea. Era il simbolo del coraggio e dell'impavidità. Ali Ibn Abi Talib, il Leone di Allah, descrive così il santo Profeta: "Kunna idha ahmarra al-ba'su walaqi al-qawm ul-qawm ittaqayna bi rasulillah fama yakunu ahadun ahadun aqraba ilal anduwi minh". Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib dice: "Quando i combattimenti diventavano intensi e i due eserciti si scontravano, noi ci rifugiavamo sempre presso il santo Profeta e invero nessuno era più vicino al nemico di Rasul Allah".

Ali Ibn Abi Talib era come lui perché era cresciuto in grembo a Rasul Allah e Ali Ibn Abi Talib stesso dice: "Wallah lawijtama't a-'arab ala qitali lama walaytu anha mudbiran", "Giuro per Allah che se tutti gli arabi si riunissero per combattere contro di me, non mi volterei indietro e non scapperei."

Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala nel Sacro Corano ha ordinato a tutti gli esseri umani di opporsi all'ingiustizia e alla tirannia in qualsiasi forma essa si manifesti. E Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala nella Surah numero 13, versetto 11 dice: "Inallaha la yughayiru ma bi qawmin hata yughayiru ma bi anfusihim" (13:11), "Allah non cambia lo stato delle persone finché le persone non cambiano lo stato delle sue anime". Ed è per questo, miei cari fratelli e sorelle, che è imperativo per noi cambiare lo stato delle nostre anime da uno stato di paura a uno stato di impavidità.

Chiediamo ad Allah Azza wa jal di riempire i nostri cuori con il coraggio dei Profeti. Wa salallahu ala Muhammadin wa ali al-tahirin.
 

Als Musa den Berg Sinai bestieg und sich dem brennenden Busch näherte, erwartete er, einem Mitmenschen zu begegnen, aber er begegnete Allah selbst. Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala offenbart sich Musa. In Sura 27, Verse 9-10; Allah sagt: "Ya Musa inahu ana Allah ul-Azeez ul-Hakeem."(27:9) O Musa, ich bin Allah, der Allmächtige, der Allwissende und dann lehrt Allah (azza wa jal) Musa die wichtigste Lektion im Kampf gegen Tyrannen, Er sagt: "Wa alqi asaak, falamma ra'aha tahtazu Kaannaha jaanun walla mudbira wa lam yu'aqib.

" (27:10) Allah sagt zu Musa: "O Musa, wirf deinen Stab hin, und als Musa sah, dass sich sein Stab in eine laufende Schlange verwandelt hatte, wandte er sich ab und lief.

Allah sagt: "Ya Musa inni la yakhafu laday al-mursaloon "(27:10) O Musa, meine Gesandten haben in meiner Gegenwart niemals Angst, sich gegen jeden Tyrannen zu stellen, um Ungerechtigkeit auszurotten, erfordert Furchtlosigkeit und Mut. Imam Sajjad, alayhi assalam, als er gebeten wurde, die Bedeutung von Mut zu erklären, sagte er in diesen berühmten Zeilen: "Kalimatu haqin inda sultanin fajir." Mut ist, die Wahrheit in der Gegenwart eines Tyrannen zu sagen.

Der Heilige Prophet, sallalahu alayhi wa alihi, stand in den dreiundsechzig Jahren seines Lebens den Supermächten seiner Zeit gegenüber, und er war immer an vorderster Front. Er war das Symbol für Mut und Furchtlosigkeit. Ali Ibn Abi Talib, der Löwe Allahs, beschreibt den Heiligen Propheten auf folgende Weise: "Kunna idha ahmarra al-ba'su walaqi al-qawm ul-qawm ittaqayna bi rasulillah fama yakunu ahadun aqraba ilal anduwi minh." Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib sagt: ,,Wenn die Kämpfe heftig wurden und die beiden Armeen aufeinander trafen, suchten wir immer Zuflucht beim Heiligen Propheten, und in der Tat war niemand dem Feind näher als Rasul Allah.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib war derselbe, denn er wuchs im Schoß Rasul Allahs auf und Ali Ibn Abi Talib selbst sagt: "Wallah law ijtama't al-'arab ala qitali lama wallaytu anha mudbiran." Er sagt: "Ich schwöre bei Allah, dass, wenn sich alle Araber versammeln würden, um gegen mich zu kämpfen, ich mich nicht abwenden und nicht davonlaufen würde. Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala hat im Heiligen Koran allen Menschen befohlen, sich gegen Ungerechtigkeit und Tyrannei zu stellen, in welcher Form auch immer sie auftritt.

Und Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala sagt in Sura Nummer 13, Vers 11: "Inna Allaha la yughayyiru ma bi qawmin hatta yughayyiru ma bi anfusihim."(13:11) Allah wird den Zustand eines Volkes nicht ändern, bis sie den Zustand ihrer Seelen ändern. Und deshalb, meine lieben Brüder und Schwestern, ist es zwingend notwendig, dass wir den Zustand unserer Seelen von einem Zustand der Angst zu einem Zustand der Furchtlosigkeit ändern.

Wir bitten Allah Azza wa jal, unsere Herzen mit dem Mut der Propheten zu erfüllen. Wa salallahu ala Muhammadin wa alihi al-tahirin.
