Imam Hussain sees who is crying for him

Love toward Imam Hussain is not a one-sided love. He looks at us while we are crying for him and he prays for us and asks God to forgive us.

The first day of Muharram is coming again and our hearts are igniting again for the martyrdom of Imam Hussain.

*The complete quote in Arabic language:

الأمالی للطوسی عن مُحَمَّد بن مسلم عن أبی عبد اللّه جعفر بن مُحَمَّد [الصادق ](ع): إنَّ الحُسَینَ بنَ عَلِی(ع) عِندَ رَبِّهِ عَزِّ وجَلَّ، ینظُرُ إلی مَوضِعِ مُعَسکرِهِ، ومَن حَلَّهُ مِنَ الشُّهَداءِ مَعَهُ، وینظُرُ إلی زُوّارِهِ، وهُوَ أعرَفُ بِحالِهِم، وبِأَسمائِهِم وأسماءِ آبائِهِم، وبِدَرَجاتِهِم ومَنزِلَتِهِم عِندَ اللّهِ عَزَّ وجَلَّ مِن أحَدِکم بِوَلَدِهِ، وإنَّهُ لَیری مَن یبکیهِ، فَیستَغفِرُ لَهُ، ویسأَلُ آباءَهُ(ع) أن یستَغفِروا لَهُ.

Mahdi, the promised saviour, is like to the prophets | A quote by Imam Hussain

The birth anniversary of our beloved Imam Mahdi is coming in a few days and I can see all the people loving him are trying to prepare for his birth anniversary in different ways.

Imam Mahdi is our twelfth Imam and the promised saviour who will return and fill the earth with the equity and justice. he is the only man left from the descendants of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and the holy prophet Muhammad and all the other eleven Imams even the other prophets has informed us about the last savior of man , Imam Mahdi.

I recently found a quote by Imam Hussain (PBUH) about the similarities of Imam Mahdi to the holy prophets Noah, Abraham, Jesus, Moses, Job and the prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon them). Imam Hussain has introduced Imam Mahdi as “our Qaem (al-Qaem)” in this quote and it’s interesting to know that Imam Mahdi will also introduced himself to the people by this name at the time of reappearance. May Allah Hasten the reappearance of him.

The quote by Imam Hussain is a bit long so I prepared it as several images in a way that each image includes the similarities to one prophet:

The complete quote of Imam Hussain in Arabic in Kashf al-Ghumma, V.3, p.329:

فی القائم منا سنن من الانبیاء سنة من نوح وسنة من ابراهیم وسنة من موسى وسنة من عیسى وسنة من ایوب وسنة من محمد صلى الله علیه وآله وسلم فأما من نوح فطول العمر واما من ابراهیم فخفاء الولادة واعتزال الناس واما من موسى فالخوف والغیبة واما من عیسى فاختلاف الناس فیه واما من ایوب فالفرج بعد البلوى واما من محمد صلى الله علیه وآله وسلم فالخروج بالسیف [کشف الغمة، ج 3، ص 329.]

The translation of the quote by Imam Hussain to Persian:

امام حسین علیه السلام فرمود: در قائم ما سنّتها و ویژگیهایى از پیامبران وجود دارد: از نوح علیه السلام عمر طولانى، از ابراهیم علیه السلام مخفى بودن ولادت و دورى گزینى از مردم، از موسى علیه السلام ترس و غیبت، از عیسى علیه السلام اختلاف مردم درباره او، از ایوب علیه السلام گشایش پس از گرفتاریها، و از محمّد علیه السلام قیام با شمشیر [کشف الغمة، ج 3، ص 329.]

Happy birthday of Imam Hussain

Happy birthday of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam; The one who God placed the cure in his grave’s soil; the one who prophet Muhammad said about him: “I am from Hussain and Hussain is from me and God loves who loves Hussain”.

Imam Hussain is the one who is always in our hearts. We never forget how the enemies of Islam killed him in the battle of Karbala and we always see how the descendants of those enemies are still trying to kill Imam Hussain’s name and distort his true way but we are also awaiting for the revenge in companion with Imam Mahdi, the man from the descendant of Imam Hussain, the man who will introduce himself by Imam Hussain when he returns and that is also the time which the prophet Jesus will also come back to help him.

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.

“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)

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:

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

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…”

Imam Hussain’s prayer to God on the day of Arafah

Day of “Arafah” is the 9th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the twelfth month in the Islamic calendar and the month before Muharram.

It was narrated that on the day of “Arafah”, Imam Hussain (PBUH) along with a group of his family members and some of his followers came out the tent at the desert of “Arafat”, a place located near the city of Mecca. Imam Hussain then stood towards the Ka’bah and raised up his hands and pray to God while his face were flowed with tears.

Imam Hussain’s prayer which is called Arafah prayer (Dua Arafa) contains with the highest theological and spiritual teachings. Shia Muslim people recite this Dua on the same day each year during Haj pilgrimage or even far from Mecca at their local mosques or the holy shrines.

Arafah 2018 is on this coming Tuesday, on the 21th of Aug. So, I prepared the following image with a part of Imam Hussain’s prayer to God on the day of Arafah:

“…O’ my Lord!…and [O’] the revealer of the Torah and the Bible and the Psalms and the Furqan, and the revealer of  kaf-ha-ya-`ayn-sad and Ta-ha and Ya-Sin and the Quran, full of wisdom! You are my haven when the wide courses fail to carry me and when the earth, despite its width, becomes too narrow to bear me…”

-A part of Dua Arafah by Imam Hussain(PBUH)

 یا الهی… و منزل التوریة و الانجیل و الزبور و الفرقان و منزل کهیعص و طه و یس و القرآن الحکیم! انت کهفی حین تعیینی المذاهب فی سعتها و تضیق بی الارض برحبها…

دعاء الامام الحسین فی یوم عرفة
