Once upon a time I have heard about the Journey of Rahiyan-e-Noor and was very keen to visit the instructive places of Southern Iran, Mostly the religious and cultural institutions of Islamic Republic of Iran organizing special trips for the local and foreign students to refresh their souls and minds. Since there was very less vacancy to join the tour as Ministrant for people who coming to renew their commitment with Martyrs, who made great sacrifices for the sake of Islam and Humanity. With the blessings of Almighty I got an opportunity to attend the camp during the days of Nowroz near the border area of Hoveyzeh,Khuzestan,of Ahwaz Iran.
On the special invitation from Al-Mustafa (S) International University I along with my colleague Dr. Mujahid of Nigeria were welcomed by Reza Shareefi, an active student of Imam Sadiq (Pbuh) University,Tehran who briefed us about the program and the history of Iran-Iraq war.Mostly the Martyrs were students and has their special talent and importance in the Islamic Revolution. The Head of these martyrs was SYED MOHAMMED HUSSAIN ALLAM UL HUDA. During the war they did not get proper support from the government but still on the hearing to the command of Founder of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Imam Syed Rohullah Khomeinei (RA), they fought tirelessly till last breath.
Tour added peace and provided a spiritual course to my soul. I pray for the unity among Ummah and end of violence in Muslim World. I suggest people to visit the important locations where Iran- Iraq war took place. You will closely listen the voice of Martyrs to feel their presence.
I have read and heard a lot about the sacrifices of martyrs of Revolution, when I reached Hoveyzeh place where Martyrs are buried I realized the tangible struggle made by people while defending the nation and feel their presence closely. The place is totally providing spiritual meanings and everyday thousands of pilgrims visiting these martyrs and paying them rich tributes. I was blessed with the service of Narrator for Martyrs of Hoveyzeh. Pilgrims keenly listening the messages about the incident of war. I also shared the light on importance of Supreme leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatullah Syed Ali Khamenei “indeed a great gift from God for the Muslims of world specially the Iranian people should understand the value and respect his words”.
Whenever I wished to visit the tomb of MARTYR SYED MOHAMMED HUSSAIN ALLAM UL HUDA personally all the time he was surrounded by the pilgrims hardly I used to get the chance of visiting the place. And one more interesting fact is that grave of another MARTYR ALI HAATAMI was busy with the pilgrims all the time. People believe that the place is best linkage to pray for the fulfillment of wishes specially related to marriage. I also pray for the unity among Ummah and end of violence in Muslim World.
Days spent at Hoveyzeh added peace and provided a spiritual course to my soul. I as the Ministrant (Khadim) joined the team to serve people throughout the season.
I represented my nation India, during the occasion Chief of Al-Mustafa (SAWW) International University, Iran His Excellency Ayatollah Ali Reza A’rafi visited the place and encouraged us with his great words.
