Prominent Iraqi Shia scholar Sayyed Hashem al-Haidari has announced the formation of a new religious, cultural, and political party named the Ahdullah Islamic Movement.
Al-Haidari is strong proponent and advocate of the theory of Wilayat al-Faqih (The Guardianship of the Jurist), the core political theory upon which the Islamic Republic of Iran is based.
The following is a translation of a video in which al-Haidari makes the announcement of the party’s formation. The video was published days ago on a YouTube channel dedicated to promoting and transmitting al-Haidari statements and public appearances.

Sayyed Hashem al-Haidari, founder of the Iraqi Ahdullah Islamic Movement:
Ahdullah (Islamic) Movement is a religious, Islamic, ideological and cultural movement, period. Some say it’s a political (movement), in fact it is – politically speaking. However, this year, as everybody knows, we did not participate in the elections.
Our cause is explicitly, (speaking to all,) near and far, the present and absent (ones), to disseminate (the theory of) Wilayat al-Faqih (The Guardianship of the Jurist). It’s not subordination to Iran. Wilayat al-Faqih – when we say we believe in Wilayat al-Faqih (it means) we believe in the Wali al-Faqih (the Guardian Jurist) as a leader for the (Islamic) nation, the guardian of the affairs of Muslims. He guides Muslims (and) confronts the enemies (of the Islamic nation). Indeed, the Islamic Republic (of Iran) is (today) its right hand, but we are speaking about the guardianship (in and of itself).
We believe in the Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist and (we) advocate, promote and disseminate (our Cause) using education, information, calmness, persuasion, and (the various forms) of eloquence (to demonstrate) the idea of Guardianship, the guardianship of Islam, the guardianship of Shariah (i.e. Islamic Divine Law), the guardianship of Fiqh (i.e. Islamic jurisprudence).
The cause of the Ahdullah Movement is reviving Islam as much as we can, only through education in virtual space, be that social media, (in addition to) giving speeches and poetry on public platforms, holding (educational) festivals, (and) nothing more! And that’s the most powerful weapon. Eloquence is the strongest weapon, and eloquence is the greatest jihad (struggle) today. The enemies today are scared of eloquence, of demonstrating (the realities)!
We do not claim that the movement represents the path of Wilayah; we are the sons of Wilayah, the sons of the path of Khomeini, the sons of the Guardianship of the Jurist – (we state that) clearly – this is in terms of (our) ideology and religion. I am not speaking about law or similar issues. It’s a creed and a belief; (we believe) that this is an extension of Imamate. We promote (the concept of) Wilayah, especially in our present time, in the era of Islamic rule (in Iran), (in the era of) the (Islamic) Resistance Front, the victory of the axis of Wilayah, (and) we will not give up on this!
Indeed, the path is difficult because America won’t leave us alone, nor will the ones objecting (to our path). However, as the Prophet (Muhammad) – peace be upon him and his family – said when Amr ibn Wudd al-Amiri (of Quraysh) cleared the trench of Madinah and (challenged the Muslim camp) by saying: ‘Is there anyone among you would dare to fight against me?’, the Prophet then asked the Muslims: ‘Who would fight against Amr?’, then Ali (ibn Abi Talib) said: ‘I will fight against him’. We – from our position, following the example of our grandfather Amirul Mu’mineen (Imam Ali), are fighting against America in whatever trench, area, or field (that is required to confront it).
We only have one goal, (our) only (goal) is to please God, (by) fulfilling (our) takleef (i.e. religious duty) and nothing else. We are not seeking (fancy) cars, mansions, positions, nor the praise of people, not at all! We believe that the solution is Wilayah. The solution in Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Bahrain, Hejaz – and it was in Iran – and in Palestine and the Arab and Islamic world, (the solution) is Wilayah – Islam is the solution.
One of our main goals is to hasten the Faraj (deliverance: the reappearance of the twelfth Imam, Imam Mahdi) because the dissemination of Wilayah hastens the Faraj, and it’s a form of awaiting (i.e. active preparation for the reappearance of Imam Mahdi).
To all freedom loving men and women throughout the world I say, you should not make the mistake of “fighting America.” This type of careless and unfortunate verbiage does nothing but legitimize American violence.
Rather, you need to expose and fight American crimes and atrocities. But I know, you are afraid to even speak of, let alone confront America for its crimes and atrocities against humanity.
Thanks but no thanks, I would rather support what the man has advocated.
And to butt, how is what the man has called for a legitimacy for America to be violent? When has America ever needed any justification before it resorts to violent.
Need I welcome you back to planet earth where violent is the only solution America as got in her kit.
This eminent Shiite scholar essentially speaks oonome what the Prophet said. But he continues what General Soleimani achieved on the ground with the organized Chain of Resistance to America and the West. The chain started with resistance in Syria, then with the creation of Hezbollah and the Shiite militia in Iraq. This resistance has kept Syria from destruction, Hezbollah’s victory over Israel and the resistance of Shiite militias in Iraq, and Ansar Allah in Yemen. The idea of General Qasam Soleimanijad went to Moscow and launched Russia, which prevented the complete extermination of the world’s oldest Christians in Syria, who spoke the language of Jesus Aramaic, which Russia did and saved Christians from complete destruction-extermination. I needed this introduction to make more clear what the Prophet said: The coming of Ahriman – the Spirit of Lies whose destination is inextricably linked to the pain of others and power is based on the suffering of others. This is a terrible evil intention on such a huge scale as the ability to produce the most terrible consequences for humanity. And the Prophet was preparing a clash with this evil as a guardian of the return of the light that lives in Islam. So Dajjal is the false messiah-Antichrist who will be opposed by the Mahdi-Guided One who is the analogy of Jesus of Revelation, the return of Isa spoken of by the Prophet who will kill Dajjal. Isa is the sign of the coming of Armageddon. The Prophet thus maximally strengthened the administration – Guided by One Mahdi. A Prophet as a warning, as a Prophet of judgment who does not fight against unbelievers, but Ahriman-evil in the whole world. Despite the Mahdi being the prefiguration of Jesus of Revelation, he lives in Islam with the Prophet above all at the same time serving God in his war service: Spiritual power as the permanence of light in Islam. The Mahdi is the one rightly guided by the phenomenon at the end of time to free the world from evil and injustice. With this light the Prophet believes in the return of Isa-Jesus against Masih al Dajal, Jesus will be joined by the Mahdi to defeat evil and revive the truth, which is not the encouragement of a new religion. Jesus is the Logos in the Gospel of John, the Logos is the Prophet with light in Islam, Jesus sent the Paraclete-Spirit of Truth before his crucifixion, and next to the Prophet lives in Islam the Spirit of Truth by appearing in Hadir Sura XVIII eschatological spirit of ultimate purpose lowest and highest Two in One as it knows how to tear down if it knows how to ascend, this eschatological spirit which after the death of the Prophet remains as it comes (the West forged it into Ahasuerus) the Qur’an mentions Isa-Jesus 25 times with the essence of Sura III and Sura XIX Meyrem-Mary Jesus. The Prophet believed in the return of Jesus which just means Armageddon which will begin near Damascus. This awareness tells us that it was at Damascus that a tremendous change in the status of humanity took place, Russia saved the oldest Christians and stopped the False Messiah who meant erasing the “cradle of world civilization” Iraq. With lightning shock and awe at the force of arms, the fastest re-creation of the country in history. Iraq has ceased to exist, the country is a desolation, people have been destroyed, devastated, an empty plaque has been created to write the New Middle East – Clean Breakthrough announced by Condoleezza Rice in Tel Aviv. Through the extraordinary organization of General Qasem Soleimani and the arrival of Russia, this was prevented. In the same is the Prophet with his mission of fighting the Dajjal and the coming of Ahriman, and the victory of the Mahdi-Jesus over the evil of the world.
