Today , the people of the world need a saviour who saves the world from the disease, poverty ,hunger, racism, injustice and inequity.

The saviour is promised in all religions and all we should do is to ask God to send him back to us.

but who is the saviour of the mankind?

Muslim people believe that the saviour is a man from the descendants of Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson; The man who is called Mahdi or Imam Mahdi according to the quotes by the prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Shia Muslim people believe that Imam Mahdi is living now among us although the people of the world do not know him and today is the anniversary of his birthday.

But what about the holy prophet Jesus?

Shia Muslims believe that the holy prophet Jesus will descend and help Imam Mahdi to save the world. read the following quote by the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) :

Imam Mahdi

Imam Mahdi and Prophet Jesus

Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] :

Mahdi [PBUH] is from my progeny and when he reappears, Jesus [PBUH], the son of Mary, will descend to help him. He will follow Mahdi [PBUH] and pray behind him.

Al-Amali, Al-Shaykh Al-Saduq, Vol. 1, p. 287

قال رسول الله صلی الله علیه و آله:

مِن ذُُرَّیتی اَلمهدی اِذا خَرجَ نَزَل عیسَی بنُ مریمَ(علیه‌السلام) لِنُصرتِهِ فَقَدَّمَهُ وَ صلّی خَلفَهُ.

 

پیامبر اکرم صلی الله علیه و آله

مهدی (علیه السلام) از فرزندان من است، زمانی که قیام می‌کند، عیسی بن مریم (علیه‌السلام) برای یاری اش [از آسمان] فرود می‌آید و او را مقدّم می‌دارد و پشت سرش نماز می گذارد.

Arbaeen

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

Day of Ashura | Quote about Imam Hussain

Today is the anniversary of the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain, the one who revived Islam by his blood. He scarified himself to save the humanity , to save us.

Peace be upon Imam Hussain and his descendant, Imam Mahdi (May Allah hasten his reappearance)

A quote about Imam Hussain by Imam Khomeini (The founder of the Islamic republic of Iran)

Day of Ashura | A Lesson from Imam Hussain

Tomorrow is the day of Ashura in the year 2019.

Day of Ashura was a day Imam Hussain , the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, and his 72 companions were all killed by the tyrant of the time and their families were also captured on this day but their blood still revive Islam over many centuries. Imam Khomeini who was the founder of the Islamic republic of Iran also learned from Imam Hussain (PBUH) as he said:

Ashura

Ashura

“By this sacrifice, the Master of Martyrs defeated the antagonists and in a very short time people realized what a calamity and tragic event had taken place, so their awareness upset the rule of the Umayyad [the tyrant of the time]. In addition, Imam Hussain’s example taught us all that his is the true path in all history: Do not mind the inadequacy of numbers! It is the quality that counts not quantity. It is the quality of the jihad of numbers that triumphs. Let the great powers of the world and those who are either in the Eastern or in the Western blocks be our enemies. Let all communications mass media of the world continue to write and spread lies against this Movement, but the truth shall remain clear and evident throughout…”

Day of Ashura | The day heavenly angels wept for Hussain

The story of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on the day of Ashura in Karbala has a heat that still burn our hearts over centuries. Day of Ashura was a day in which even the heavenly angles wept for Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.

Ashura

Imam Mahdi, the 12th Shia Imam and the grandson of Imam Hussain (PBUH) has said in “Ziarat Nahiya” that not only the heavenly angles but the skies, the mountains, the oceans and even the fishes wept for Imam Hussain:

“…Mourning commemorations were held for you [O’ Hussain!] in the utmost exalted place Heaven,

and the dark-eyed Maidens [of Paradise] hit their own heads and faces in grief,

The skies and their inhabitants wept,

as did Paradise and its keepers,

The mountains and their surroundings,

The oceans and their fishes,

The heavens and their servants

The Ka’ba, and the Station (of Abraham),

The sacred Monument,

and Mecca and its sanctuary …” (Read the full Ziarat Nahiya at here).

I do not know how these can be happen but I know that there is a verse in the holy Quran saying all the creatures exalt God but you can not understand:

“The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [ Allah ] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.” [The holy Quran, 17:44]

 

Ashura | Who is Hussain?

Our deepest condolence to the man left from the descendant of Imam Hussain, to Imam of our time, Imam Mahdi (May Allah Hasten his reappearance).
I prepared the following image by a quote from Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson who said it on the way toward Karbala.

The references for this quote are from Shia and Sunni collections of traditions respectively.

Ashura

Ashura

“Don’t you see that the truth is not followed and the falsehood is not discouraged?  So that a Believer wishes to meet Allah [to die] and to me, death is nothing but prosperity, and living with tyrants is nothing but disgust and disgrace.”

-Imam Hussain (PBUH)

References: Tohaf Al-Uqoul, P.245 and Hilyatul Awliyaa, V.2, P.39

 

قال الحسین علیه السلام:

ألا ترون أن الحق لايعمل به وأن الباطل لا يتناهى عنه، ليرغب المؤمن في لقاء الله محقا،

فإني لا أرى الموت إلا سعادة ولا الحياة مع الظالمين إلا برما

Ashura | There is no day like yours + Wallpaper

There is no doubt that the greatest and the most painful massacre in history was the martyrdom of Hussain (PBUH) and his 72 companions on the day of Ashura.

Imam Hussain (PBUH) was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson who was surrounded by an army of 30,000 people in Karbala, with no water for three days! They fought deliberately in the battlefield but they were all killed and beheaded one by one in front of their families on one day which is called Ashura.

Following the martyrdom of Hussain (PBUH) and his companions, their bodies were trampled by the hoofs of the horses, their tents were burnt in fire and their women and children including Lady Zeinab (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s granddaughter, were all captured and moved along with their heads toward the Levant.

Day of Ashura was a day Imam Hassan Al-Mujtaba (PBUH) said about it to Imam Hussain (PBUH) before his martyrdom:

“لا یوم کیومک یا اباعبدالله”

There is no day like yours, O’ Aba Abdillah! [Hussain][1]

Ashura | Quote about Imam Hussain by Prophet Muhammad (6)

Recently , I searched again for the quotes about Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, in Sunni collections of quotes and I found some other traditions about him by the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) at here.

The following image is a quote I found it about the holy prophet Muhammad’s view toward those who fight with Imam Ali, Lady Fatima, Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (PBUH).

Ashura | Why do we cry for Imam Hussain in Imam Khomeini’s view?

Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson who refused to pay allegiance to the tyrant of his time thus he along with his few followers were all brutally killed on the day of Ashura at the battlefield of Karbala about 14 centuries ago but every year, Muslim people around the world participate in the mourning ceremonies and processions to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain.

Ashura

Ashura

Why they have been weeping for Imam Hussain for centuries?! Why the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and other Shia Imams were crying for Imam Hussain and why they have also recommend us to cry for him (PBUH)?

Imam Khomeini , the founder of Islamic republic of Iran has stated the reason of weeping for Imam Hussain (PBUH) in his speech. The following image includes a part of Imam Khomeini’s speech in the year 1969 (several years before the victory of Islamic revolution).

Ashura

Ashura

Imam Khomeini stated in his speech:

“…Now, a group has appeared demanding that: “Do not commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and other Infallible Shia Imams.” They do not know the outcome and consequences of this mourning and lamentation. They do not realize that it is the uprising of Imam Hussain (PBUH) against tyranny that has been conserved up to this time and has set off this movement [Islamic revolution]. This movement is a ray, a reflection of Imam Hussain’s uprising. They do not know that weeping for Imam Hussain (PBUH) means perpetuation of his uprising and maintaining the fact that even a small number could stand up against a great empire. This is the Imam Hussain’s instruction. This is an instruction for all people that: “Every day is an Ashura and each territory is Karbala!” This instruction implies that Imam Hussain’s movement must be kept alive and active everywhere and at all times.

Imam Hussain (PBUH) with his few men scarified himself for Islam. He stood up and said: “No!” to   a great empire ; and his “No” must be conserved daily and at everywhere; and these mourning sessions are also held for the perpetuation of the same “No”.

Our children and youth should not consider this matter as a matter of “weeping nation”. The “weeping nation” has been induced by others to you. They (the enemies of Islam) afraid of such weeping because it is a cry in support of the oppressed. It is an outcry in opposition to the tyrants. These organized processions and rituals are against the cruelty and injustice, They have rose up. You must keep these rituals alive. These are the religious signs which must be kept alive, These are the political signs which must be conserved…”

Quote for Muharram by Imam Reza (2)

Tonight is the first night of Muharram in 2018.

People around the world have been prepared for the mourning ceremonies since several days ago and now all over the cities are covered in black. The smell of Muharram has been propagated through the air and our hearts are started to be burned again for Imam Hussain’s martyrdom.

Tonight is the first night of mourning for the martyrdom of the prophet Muhammad’s grandson , Imam Hussain, in  Shia believes as Imam Reza (PBUH) has stated:

Ashura

“No one could have seen my father’s smile when the month of Muharram came. Sadness was increasing in his face day by day till the tenth of Muharram [day of Ashura] and when the tenth day of Muharram would dawn, it would be a day of grief and weeping for him.” – Imam Reza (PBUH)

Reference: Al-Amali, Al-Shaykh Al-Saduq, P.191

 قال الرضا علیه السلام: كان أبي (صلوات الله عليه) إذا دخل شهر المحرم لا يرى ضاحكا، وكانت الكآبة تغلب عليه حتى يمضي منه عشرة أيام، فإذا كان يوم العاشر كان ذلك اليوم يوم مصيبته وحزنه وبكائه، ويقول: هو اليوم الذي قتل فيه الحسين (صلوات الله عليه

امام رضا علیه السلام فرمود: هر گاه ماه محرم فرا می رسید، پدرم (موسی بن جعفر علیه السلام) دیگر خندان دیده نمی شد و غم و افسردگی بر او غلبه می یافت تا آن که ده روز از محرم می گذشت، روز دهم محرم که می شد، آن روز، روز مصیبت و اندوه و گریه پدرم بود 

الامالی شیخ صدوق، ص 191
