God loves who loves Hussain | A Quote by Prophet Muhammad

There is a quote by the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) about Imam Hussain (PBUH) that I have made it before as an image with a black background but now I made it again with a lovely background suitable for the birth anniversary of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and other occasions of happiness, showing our love toward Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.

Quote by prophet Muhammad about Imam Hussain

Hussain is from me and I am from Hussain , God loves who loves Hussain

The holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Sunan at-Termidhi. v.6, no.3775

This quote is very famous in Islam among both Shia and Sunni books.

Ziyarat Arbaeen

The day of Arbaeen 2020 is coming in less than a week and so sadly we are here at home, far from you O’ Aba Abdillah! [1] You know that all the way toward Karbala have been closed to stop Coronavirus spreading and we have no way toward the holy shrine of you!

We’ve got to obey the decisions made by national center of anti-corona in Iran, because the grand leader of the Islamic community, Imam Khamenei, has asked us not to do anything against their rules. He has also recommended that we express our love toward you at our homes and read Ziyarat Arbaeen in an attentive manner and complain of this situation to you! [2]

O’ Aba Abdillah! you know we wished to come, but it was not possible as you see this situation. Please help us in such a way you know it and accept us again. [3]

Arbaeen 2019 | Photos on the way toward Karbala

Tonight is the night of Arbaeen 2019 and tomorrow will be the day of Arbaeen, the 40th day following the day of Ashura so millions of people from different countries have flock to the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (PBUH) for the pilgrimage.

Many thanks to Allah who allowed us once more to walk from Najaf to Karbala for Arbaeen 2019 and also many thanks to Imam Hussain (PBUH) who permitted us to come to his holy shrine again. I hope Imam Hussain (PBUH) accept all of us for Arbaeen of the next year In-Sha-Allah

Arbaeen

Every year, millions of people from different countries flock to the city of Karbala for the pilgrimage of the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson on the day of Arbaeen. Even non-Muslim people take part in this massive march.

Lots of these people prefer to walk more than 80 kilometers from Najaf toward Karbala for the pilgrimage. This happens not only because of their true love toward Imam Hussain, but also because this is a best way to introduce Imam Hussain to the world; a way to show their preparation for the arrival of Imam Mahdi, the last savior of man from descendant of Imam Hussain.

If you decide to take part in this journey of love, you should know that you do not need to worry about drink, food or even accommodation during this journey. One backpack is enough to start as the hospitality of Iraqian people toward the pilgrims of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on the way toward Karbala is amazing and makes you to experience a new different social life style on Arbaeen.

 

The text in the above image is taken from a quote by Imam Sadigh (PBUH) :

قال الصادق ع: مَنْ أَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَیْنِ ع مَاشِیاً کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِکُلِّ خُطْوَةٍ أَلْفَ حَسَنَةٍ وَ مَحَا عَنْهُ أَلْفَ سَیِّئَةٍ وَ رَفَعَ لَهُ أَلْفَ دَرَجَةٍ

Whoever walks for the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (PBUH), God will record 1000 awards for his/her every step and will wipe out his/her 1000 sins and will give him/her higher ranking number [in the heaven] by 1000

امام صادق(ع):‏ کسى که پیاده به زیارت امام حسین(ع) برود خداوند به هر قدمى که بر مى‏ دارد هزار حسنه برایش ثبت و هزار گناه از وى محو مى‏فرماید و هزار درجه، مرتبه‏اش را بالا مى‏برد

We need to introduce Imam Hussain to the world

” Nowadays, we need to introduce #Hussain ibn Ali to the #world. The world of tyranny and corruption needs to know the liberty of Hussain…. If Hussain (PBUH) is introduced to the world, Islam will be introduced, the #Quran will be introduced…”. The supreme leader Ayatullah #Khamenei said it yesterday on the 18th sep. 2019. Ashura

Yesterday, the leader Ayatullah khamenei had a meeting with #Iraqian people who host and serve the pilgrims of Imam Hussain’s holy shrine during Arbaeen in Iraq (PBUH)

Today is not Arbaeen in Karbala but the Quds day in Iran

Today was amazing!

I feel I was going on a walk toward Karbala on Arbaeen but surprisingly I was in Qom , a holy city in Iran, near the capital city of Tehran. I’ve seen so many different flags in today’s rally against Zionism and USA. There were more flags than what I’ve seen on Arbaeen. I  did not even know the name of countries I’ve seen their flags. At first I thought some Iranian people might pick up some flags for the Quds day but their faces were not seem to be Iranian people. I also asked some of them to be sure about it and I found that’s true. The Quds day of this year was a picture of the unity of nations to support Muslim people of Palestine against the occupying regime of Zionism.

I only took the photos of some flags in the rally and I have taken them while I was exactly at the end of the path of the rally not in the middle of it. that’s why you can not see the crowd in some photos.

 Thanks girls! When I asked these girls to take their photo, they kindly accept it. I asked them for their country name and found that they were from Indonesia. 

I also asked her for the name of her country but Read More…

The signs of a believer are five [1] :

1.Performing 51 units of prayer [2] [of which 17 units are the obligatory prayers and 34 units are the recommended prayers per day]
2. Pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on Arbaeen [the 40th day following Ashura],
3. Wearing a ring on the right hand,
4. Placing the forehead on the earth [during Sajdah in the prayer];
5. Saying Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim” [which means “In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful”] aloud during the prayer “ (Tahzib Al-Ahkam: V.6 , P.52)

[1] The quotation from Imam Hasan Al-Askari in Arabic language:

“علامات المؤمنین خمس : صلاةُ الاحدی و الخمسین و زیارةُ الاربعین والتـَختم فی الیَمین و تـَعفیرُ الجـَبین و الجَهر ببسم الله الرحمن الرحیم”

[2]  Each prayer or Salat in Islam consists of  individual units called Rakat. Each Rakat is very similar to each other except some minor details.

Arbaeen Quote : Visit God in his throne by the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain’s holy shrine

The world’s biggest peaceful pilgrimage is underway…

The pilgrimage of Imam Hussain’s holy shrine was recommended many times in the Islamic and Shia quotes (ahadith). You can see one of such quotes stated by Imam Reza (PBUH), the 8th Shia Imam, in the following image:

Whoever makes a pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Imam Hussain near the Euphrates river, is like the one who visits God at his throne.

Thawab al-A’mal, p 147

قال الرضا علیه السلام: من زار قبر ابی عبدالله علیه السلام بشط الفرات کان کمن زار الله فی عرشه

کسی که قبر امام حسین علیه السلام را در کنار فرات زیارت کند، مانند کسی است که خدا را در بالای عرش زیارت نموده است

ثواب الاعمال شیخ صدوق، صفحه 147

Arbaeen is the day in which the world’s biggest peaceful gathering is held annually around the holy shrine of Imam Hussain, the heart of the city of Karbala and millions of  Imam Hussain lovers across the world flock into Karbala for the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain on Arbaeen.

Arbaeen

A huge numbers of pilgrims arrive in Karbala on foot. They walk for at least 80 kilometers from Najaf to the holy shrine of Imam Hussain in Karbala. Walking on Arbaeen is the best way to introduce Imam Hussain to the world and to help the reappearance of Imam Mahdi, the 12th Imam.  Arbaeen is also a way to memorize how much difficulties lady Zeainab and Hussain’s children tolerate as they were captive toward Karbala although there is no concern at all about food, drink and accommodation on the way to Karbala as some Imam Hussain’s lovers especially the Iraqian Shia Muslim people kindly provide what pilgrims might need on this way. They prepare everything for the pilgrims for free, for the love of Imam Hussain.

It’s really hard to me to explain what I have seen on this way. Giving up the usual life exactly at the time being very busy is not very simple but when you gave it all up,  you can experience a completely different life style on the way toward Karbala. You can feel a fresh love inside your heart toward Imam Hussain despite the difficulties of walking you might have in this way. You can see millions of people with different nationalities and languages surrendering you in this way with the same love toward Hussain inside their hearts as the holy prophet Muhammad stated that “Surely , there exists in the hearts of the believers, with respect to the martyrdom of Hussain, a heat that never subsides.”

The pilgrimage of Imam Hussain on Arbaeen was said to be one of the signs of a believers according to the quote received from Imam Hassan al-Asgari.
