An excerpt from Sheikh Usama Abdul Ghani’s speech:
There was one time when Sayyed Nasrallah came to Qum. Normally, for the students, that’s like Eid. Sayyed Nasrallah comes, everybody is excited. MashAllah, he’s here. He wants to give a little talk. So we came to a school in Qum called Hujadiyya. So just in case I get questioned by the FBI or CIA or anbody else, I don’t know Sayyed Nasrallah, I’m not one of his boys, he was there, it’s Eid! Anyhow, so he’s giving this lecture and he says a beautiful beautiful hadith which illustrates this point. The Prophet—in this hadith—is talking to Ammar, his companion. He’s telling him that there will be a time after me when there will be a lot of division among the Ummah. They will be taking swords to one another. They will be seeking distance from one another. So what the Prophet did was he gave Ammar the criteria of Haq (truth) and where to be. The Prophet told Ammar: If everyone goes into a valley—all of the people are in one valley—but Ali ibn Abi Talib goes into another Valley, you go into that valley that Ali ibn Abi Talib goes into and leave the people. You follow Ali. And Sayyed Nasrallah—when he was speaking to us—this was years before the victory in Lebanon—he said, “Brothers. I’m going to tell you right now, I’m going to be frank with you. If all the Ullama go into a valley, and Sayyed Ali Khamenei goes into a valley, go into the valley that Sayyed Ali Khamenei goes into.” Right now, when times are tough, you don’t know where the truth is. Everybody is talking. Just remember the words of the man who is more old school than all of us—Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
