Providing Relief to Muslims
Once a person came to the presence of Imam Hassan (a.s.) and made a fervent appeal for help. The Imam (a.s.) came out of his house with the person. When he found Imam Hussain (a.s.) on the way, he asked the person, “Why didn’t you approach this brother of mine for help?” The man said, “O son of the Prophet! I had noticed that Imam Hussain (a.s.) was in the mosque doing his I'tekaaf (retirement to the mosque for continued prayer). At that moment Imam Hassan (a.s.) said the following words that should be a source of guidance for us:
“If you had approached Imam Hussain (a.s.) during his I'tekaaf for his help, and he had fulfilled your need, then the reward for him would have been more than continuous prayer (I'tekaaf) for one month!” Bihar, Vol 74, Page 335
If someone provides relief to a Muslim, his reward will be more than that for spending a month in the mosque praying day and night! I, therefore, appeal to all the believing men and women that, to the extent possible, they should provide help and assistance to Muslims in particular the innocent Muslims in Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan who are bearing the atrocities of the 'Super-Satan USA' and her unlawful and illegitimate child 'Israel'.
