According to Iran's Fars news agency on Thursday, a blood-red flag had risen from the dome of the Jamkalan mosque in the Iranian Shiite holy city of Qom, which had never flown the flag before. Video footage shows mosque workers carrying flags as they head to the dome with a photo of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Al-Quds Brigade commander Suleimani, who was assassinated by the United States.
According to Fars News Agency analysis, according to Shiite tradition, the blood-red flag not only symbolizes the bloodshed of injustice, but is also an appeal for revenge for the victims.
According to the video picture, the text on the blood red flag is Arabic "? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ？” (Trans: Ya La-Tharatal-Husayn), according to "The Story of Karbala," by Ayatollah Ali Nazari Muffarid, the slogan means" revenge for the blood of Hussein."
《 Karbala's Story explains that the slogan dates back to the late 7th century AD. The Arab Empire broke out in civil war under the third orthodox caliphate, and by the time of the fourth orthodox caliph, Mohammed's cousin and son-in-law, Ali, the Arab Empire was divided into three, melee.
During the civil war, Ali was assassinated and the Arab Empire was ruled by the Japanese family after his death. However, the ruling puma dynasty faced a number of opposition challenges, including the descendants of Mohammed, the sacramental Hashim family and its supporters.
After the rise of iraq's kufa muslims and opposition to the rule of the pomah dynasty, in 680, muhammad's grandson, ali's second son, hussein, went to kufa with 200 supporters to try to establish a regime in iraq, but along the way was surrounded by 6000 soldiers of the pomah dynasty in karbala, where he and his entourage refused to surrender and all died.
Afterwards, in 684, kufa muslims re-emerged against the ruling pomah dynasty, who first shouted the slogan \"revenge for the blood of hossein \", but the following year the army of kufa muslims was defeated by the pomah ay dynasty in northern syria's aynal-warda.
Although the military struggle of the Kufa Muslims has not been successful, the slogan of \"revenge for Hussein's blood\" is used by Shia Muslims, including the Kufa Muslims, and has been circulated to the present.
Li Fuquan, a professor at the Middle East Institute of Northwestern University and deputy director of the University of the Middle East, said to the surging news () that he had seen a large number of red flags in the event of the activities of the martyr of the two-year-old war, called the Light Monkey. \"The flags are mostly red in the various war sites of the Light Monkey.\" Li Fuquan said that the \"There were numerous red flags on both sides of the road, and a large number of martyrs.\"
A chinese student studying at tehran university in iran told the news that the blood-red flag rising at the dome of the kumjamkaran mosque meant mourning and grief and preparing to fight to avenge the martyr.
“Red stands for blood, and red flags for martyrs." The chinese student said," such a flag is rarely seen on the dome of a mosque, either in peacetime or in history."
The foreign student said the iranians were also discussing recently why the kumjamkaran mosque raised a blood-red flag rather than a more common black one,\" because it has a solemn meaning to use black at funerals.\"
The student said the American assassination of Suleimani had somewhat inspired the Iranian people's national feelings and brought them together. A poem chanted by Iranians in their mourning calls for \"their blood\" to pay for \"our blood.\"
