Allegiance is not an easy matter

Professor: Panāhian

Behaving according to the phrase “Labbayk Yā Mahdī (mgehr)”1 is much harder than the phrase “Labbayk Yā Ḥusayn (pbuh)”

When you say “Labbayk Yā Ḥusayn (pbuh)”; That means, ‘I am ready to help you’. Just as the martyrs of Karbalā, who helped Abū ʿAbd Allāh Ḥusayn (pbuh).

But, the helpers whom His Majesty Imām Zamān (mGehr) wants, are different from the helpers of Abū ʿAbd Allāh Ḥusayn (pbuh); not in terms of rank and status, but in terms of function.

When the helpers of His Majesty Imām Zamān (mgehr) pledge allegiance to him, it does not mean that “I am ready to sacrifice my life for you, serving your worship”. His Majesty has already enough people who are ready to sacrifice their lives for him.

It means, I am ready to help you to rule the world. And this is much more difficult than sacrifice. Because it requires a lot of stability, a lot of sincerity, and a lot of purity. Allegiance is not an easy matter!

An individual pledges allegiance; when you pledge allegiance, you must stand by your pledge.

1.     It means, “Oh Ḥusayn (pbuh), I am responding to your call”
