-- Time to Rebuild Jannat al-Baqie

Today the 8th of Shawwal is that doleful day in history when in the year 1345 AH (1926), the desert brigand of Najd, Abdul-Aziz Aal-e Saud, after massacring innocent Muslim men, women, and children in the Prophet’s city Medina, tried to destroy the holy shrine of Prophet Muhammad (SAWA). When he was dissuaded, he sent his Godless Wahhabi hordes to desecrate the Sacred Jannat al-Baqie Cemetery and raze to the ground the tombs of the elite of Islam, especially the towering majestic mausoleum over the blessed resting places of Four of the Prophet’s Twelve Infallible Heirs – Imam Hasan al-Mujtaba, Imam Zain al-Abedin, Imam Muhammad Baqer, and Imam Ja’far as-Sadeq (peace upon them). 


-- The important message Assad visit signals

Syrian President Bashar Assad’s surprise visit to Tehran on Sunday has been hailed as a turning point in Iran-Syria relations in the wake of the recent Arab opening to Syria, which led to speculations over a possible torpor in the two countries’ ties. 

For the second time in a decade, Assad paid an unannounced visit to Iran and met with high-ranking Iranian officials. His last visit was in 2018 when he showed up in Tehran thanks to arrangements made by the late General Qassem Soleimani, the former commander of the Quds force.

The United Nations has warned that more Syrian children are in need than at any time since a devastating war erupted against the country over a decade ago, but funding for them is “dwindling”. “Syria’s children have suffered for far too long and should not suffer any longer,” the UN children’s agency said in a statement.

He praised the laborers for their hard work in Iran’s fight against the foes’ conspiracies to upset the Iranian economy. 

“Since the first days of the Islamic Revolution, the enemy has sought to halt production in the country. All the sanctions were aimed at halting production in Iran. Our workers have stood on the front lines and have not let that happen,” he said, adding that workers have made impressive achievements in military, economic, and political spheres, and at least 14,000 laborers sacrificed their lives during Iraq’s war on Iran in the 1980s.
