A Glance at Arbaeen Walk and Pilgrimage -Part VIII-
Trying to Cause Coherence Among the Shi’ah
For enemies of the Shi’ah, especially the Wahhabis- coherence of all schools of the Shi’ah even the non-twelvers- is not desirable.
In recent decades some of the Shi’ah have been the frontrunners for coherence with the Sunni in spite of doctrinal differences. While standing firm on our doctrinal positions, the good parts of this experience can be focused within to cause all schools of the Shi’ah to cohere in front of the enemies; meanwhile some of the more knowledgeable twelver Shi’ah must benevolently remove misunderstandings and prove the rightfulness of the twelve Infallible Imams (PBUT) to all sincere Truth seekers in order to achieve the true unity, now with anticipation of the Faraj of the Imam Mahdi (PBUH), and very soon, Insha’Allah, with his Ever-Anticipated Appearance.
Indeed, during the Walk our enemies try to break this coherence and cause many incitements. Therefore, it is upon us to be wise and patient and not let any sparks of differences, which mainly stem from misunderstandings turn into fire.
Let us not forget that in some pure corner in the Walk the twelfth Infallible Imam, Hazrat Mahdi (PBUH) may be present. He (PBUH) has been forsaken by so many for so long. The heritage of his Anticipation has been entrusted to us by those who loved and anticipated him all their lives, let us not let the Wahhabis or anyone else take this heritage away from us, let us patiently, politely, wisely, kindly and scholarly safeguard this heritage until the glorious moment of Appearance.
