Ibrahim Swada Hachaki, a Japanese clergyman!
The blog “Bayan”, which is belong to the biology doctoral student in Japan, according to a Japanese cleric has written, the spiritual status of Japanese takes 40 years to reach the Iranian spiritual status.
According to this blog, cleric sheikh Ibrahim Swada has said “If a Japanese wants to get to the point where you are (Iranians and Shiites), must spend 30 to 40 years with God blessings, must read Tawhid for 3 years to answer his doubts, takes another 10 years to understand and accept the Prophet’s prophecy and 10 years for Imamate.”
In front of pulpit of a Japanese clergyman!
I thought to myself, God, what should I do now, liturgist is a Japanese! “sheikh Ibrahim Swada”, Well, the Japanese have trouble pronouncing words in other languages, for example, they never differentiate between “L-ل” and “R-ر”, now if its pronunciation is incorrect, the prayer will have trouble.
But there was no other way and on the other hand, because he was so good that God led him to this path of light, and Putted him among the friends of Ahlul Bait and Shiites from a Shinto-Buddhist country, I wanted to pray behind him and save it for the Hereafter.
Anyway, we closed the prayer rows and he started praying. I surprised, He was so good at reading and even spelling out the exact words, let alone “L- ل “and “R-ر “. After the prayer, they prayed ziyarat Ashura and then began to speech.
This was the first time I was sitting in front of a Japanese pulpit; talked about the verse of “Tathir-تطهیر” and from the “conversation” of Imam Sajjad (a.s) with the Shami man; He said you have a blessing that you do not appreciate it, you were born and raised in a Shia family is a blessing to be thankful for.
He said, unlike other people and even other Muslims, on the Day of Judgment, you will start from another point, like runners who all have to start from one point, but because of the dignity that the Ahlul-Bayt (a.s) has given us, we will be calculated so close to them.
sheikh Ibrahim Swada said “If a Japanese wants to get to the point where you are (Iranians and Shiites), must spend 30 to 40 years with God blessings, must read Tawhid for 3 years to answer his doubts (if resources or persons be available), takes another 10 years to understand and accept the Prophet’s prophecy and 10 years for Imamate.”
He said his father had also become Muslim and Shiite by same way. It was an interesting meeting and he had sweet and interesting words; at the end of the program, we guested of Imam Hussain (a.s) and returned.
