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.

Seeking liberty and justice like Imam Hussain

These days, Iranian people are celebrating the 42th anniversary of the victory of Islamic revolution of Iran. They rose up against cruelty and injustice for at least 15 years with the God’s helps and through the leadership of a supreme leader, Imam Khomeini, the man who said this famous quote: “Imam Hussain (PBUH) taught us all how to stand up cruelty and the government of tyranny. “

Now Iranian people are still fighting against the arrogant powers who try to recolonize Iran and remake it a dependent country with no powers and of course with the right of capitulation for themselves like before the revolution!!! But these people still have the God’s helps and the leadership of Ayatullah Khamenei . Some other countries are also awakening seeking justice even the people of US. May God helps our brothers and sisters in everywhere.

It’s interesting that Imam Hussain (PBUH) is also a role model for seeking liberty and justice in Imam Khamenei’s view :

I made this image from a Imam khamenei’s speech which you can read it completely at here

“Today, Imam Hussain (a.s.) is known to the world more than he was 5 centuries, 10 centuries ago. Today the situation is as such that when impartial intellectuals learn about the history of Islam, and the story of Imam Hussain (a.s.), they feel humble. Even for those who do not know anything about Islam, yet they recognize the notions of freedom, justice, dignity, elevation, and lofty human values, Imam Hussain (PBUH) is an invaluable role model in seeking liberty and justice, in rising up against vices and evils as well as in fighting ignorance and humiliation of mankind.

– Imam Khamenei (Speech in April 14, 2000)

امروز بیش از پنج قرن و ده قرن پیش، حسین‌بن‌علىِ اسلام و شما، در دنیا شناخته شده است. امروز وضع به گونه‌ای است که متفکّران و روشنفکران و آنهایی که بیغرضند، وقتی به تاریخ اسلام بر میخورند و ماجرای امام حسین را میبینند، احساس خضوع میکنند. آنهایی که از اسلام سر در نمی‌آورند، اما مفاهیم آزادی، عدالت، عزّت، اعتلاء و ارزشهای والای انسانی را میفهمند، با این دید نگاه میکنند و امام حسین، امام آنها در آزادیخواهی، در عدالت‌طلبی، در مبارزه با بدیها و زشتیها و در مبارزه با جهل و زبونی انسان است.

(بیانات رهبر انقلاب، امام خامنه ای، درتاریخ 26 فروردین 1379)

Imam Hussain quote

O’ God! That harm and hardship which you warded off from me was more than well-being and joy which was revealed to me.*

-Imam Hussain (PBUH)

I found this quote of Imam Hussain (PBUH) very impressive as we often notice to the amount of happiness and easiness which is coming to us by God and unfortunately we usually do not notice to the whole hardship and adversities which could have surrounded us but God warded them off.

Imam Mahdi is from the descendant of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and the 12th Imam who is living among us now although most of us do not know him. This is what Shia believes in.

Muharram and Ashura 2020 | Imam Hussain’s lovers show how to manage mourning ceremonies during COVID-19

Higher mortality rate for corona virus disease in the recent weeks in Iran had been made an special and concerned situation for Imam Hussain’s lovers before the beginning of Muharram 2020: Cancellation of the mourning ceremonies for Imam Hussain (PBUH) was not believable and All the COVID-19 public advice had to be respected. The media outside Iran were also trying to show Imam Hussain’s mourners as disrespectful people to the laws and advice; But with the beginning of Muharram 2020 , everyone can see how mourners and lovers of Imam Hussain (PBUH) strict to the corona virus preventive advice.

Ashura and Muharram 2020 – A mourning ceremony for Imam Hussain with respect to the COVID-19 advice

Temperature assessments and washing hands with hands sanitizers at the entrance to the ceremony, keeping away from other mourners by seating on the previously defined places, wearing masks during the mourning ceremonies which are held in outdoors for 2 hours at the maximum are some of the rules which are respected at the ceremonies.

The following images belonged to the different mourning ceremonies which have been held since the beginning of Muharram in the year 2020.

Imam Hussain flag raised at former US embassy in Iran for Muharram mourning ceremony in 2020

As you may heard the news , the mourning flag of Imam Hussain was raised at former US embassy in Islamic republic of Iran with the beginning of  Muharram 2020 and the mourning ceremony for Imam Hussain is held every night at 20:30 pm at the former embassy for the first ten nights of Muharram.

Raising Imam Hussain flag at a US embassy and its conversion to the Hussainiya (A place to hold Imam Hussain’s mourning ceremony) has a great message to the US government and to all the tyrants of the time. A message more important than the message of the victory is about to happen.

Although this blog has been already blocked by Facebook and Instagram since I wrote a post about G.en.eral S.o.leimani but I could not ignore the former embassy photos.

When is Ashura 2017?

Ashura 2017 is on Sunday, the 1st of October (1/10/2017).

Ashura 2017

“Ashura” (/ʌʃuːrʌ /) means “tenth” in Arabic language and the day of Ashura  is the 10th day of Muharram(/Mohærræm/), the first month in the Islamic calendar but each year, the day of Ashura falls in a different day in the Georgian calendar as the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and the Georgian calendar is a solar one.

Ashura

Ashura 2017

Day of Ashura was the day in which Imam Husayn, and all 72 of his companions were violently killed and beheaded one by one and all their women and children were captured.

Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam who prophet Muhammad had stated about him:

“Hussain is from me and I’m from Hussain”

but he was murdered in fifty years following the prophet Muhammad by the people who called themselves Muslim!

Imam Hussain was surrounded by an Army of 30,000  at the land of Karbala on his way to Kufah in the year 61 Hijri (about 680 AD). Paying allegiance to Yazid was the only way for Imam Hussain to survive but Yazid did not believe in prophetess and revelation as he said it openly and his behaviors were against the Islamic rules. Thus there was no way for Imam Hussain except to   sacrifice what they had to save Islam from utter distortion and destruction.

Ashura and the first lesson from Imam Hussain

Happy birthday of Imam Hussain to the Imam of our time, Imam Mahdi, and to all the believers.

Ashura – The holy shrine of Imam Hussain in Karbala

In this post , I’d like to translate a part of an speech made by a great philosopher and scholar, Ayatullah Mohammad Taqi Mesbah Yazdi who is fortunately alive and lives in the city of Qom in Iran. I read the text of that speech in his official website in the recent days and I found it inspiring. It was about the first lesson from the martyrdom of  Imam Hussain (PBUH) in some parts

The first lesson from the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) is that we should not concern ourselves about the future consequences, if we work to the glory of God. The good results will be achieved surely even if the present results do not seem pleasant; it may be achieved in the future years and the society will be benefited from.

Ayatullah Mesbah Yazdi said that Imam Hussain was satisfied with what he did although he gave everything he had because he worked to the glory of God and provided the long-lasting conditions for the Islamic society to be reformed…

We should contemplate how just 50 years after demise of the prophet [Muhammad](PBUH), the Islamic society reached a point that a person like Imam Hussain had no choice but to make such a sacrifice to save the islamic society?
