Congratulations to all the believers, all across the world, upon the birth anniversary of Ali Akbar ibn al-Husayn (A) and on Youth Day.
Ali Akbar (A) was the son of the 3rd infallible Imam, Imam Husayn ibn Ali (A). Ali Akbar was martyred on the day of Ashura, in the land of Karbala on the 10th of Muharram, year 61 hijri.
He was a steadfast, resolute, faithful, brave, honorable, noble, righteous, and beautiful youth both in his physical appearance and in his spiritual behavior.
It is related that Ali Akbar (A) was so much like the holy Prophet (S), both in appearance and in character, that when people wanted to see the holy Prophet (S), they would look towards him.
In this clip, Imam Sayyid Ali Khamenei reminds the youth that being a devout and faithful person is relatively easy, but remaining so until one’s last moments, is a different matter.
May Allah help us to live our lives with honor, righteousness, and faith until we leave this earth.
