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…

 

 

Lady Zeinab and her holy shrine in Syria

Our great condolence to Imam Mahdi (PBUH) for the martyrdom anniversary of lady Zainab, the prophet Muhammad’s grand daughter and the beloved Imam Hussain’s sister, the lady who watched how Yazid’s Army killed Imam Hussain and all of the men in her family one by one on one day, Ashura, in Karbala. She saw by herself how people who called themselves Muslim, cut the head of the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and his men in the same way the terrorist group of ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) murder innocent people in Syria nowadays. She observed how they moved the men’s heads in front of their women and children who were captured toward the land of “Sham” (or “Levant” in English). Sham is now called Syria where the holy shrine of lady Zainab (PBUH) is located.

The holy shrine of lady Zainab in Syria where “the defenders of the holy shrine are fighting against the terrorist group of ISIL not to allow them to close to the lady for one more time.

Peace be upon Imam Hussain, the inheritor of Jesus

Today is the first day of the holy month of Rajab, one of the third holy months in the Islamic calendar: Rajab, Sha’ban and Ramadan. Fasting and pilgrimage (Ziyarat) of Imam Hussain (PBUH) are recommended to do on this day and there is some praying (Duas) to be read at the time of the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain when you are at the holy shrine of Imam Hussain or far away from it. Ziyarat Warith (the inheritor) is one of these small praying which begins with the peaces upon the holy prophets:

Peace be upon you, O the inheritor of Adam, the one chosen by God,

Peace be upon you, O the inheritor of Noah, the Prophet of God,

Peace be upon you, O the inheritor of Abraham, the friend of God,

Peace be upon you, O the inheritor of Moses, the one who talked to God,

Peace be upon you, O the inheritor of Jesus, the spirit of God,

Imam Khamenei said:

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?

Mahdi is the promised man from the descendant of Husayn

The promised Mahdi is the last savoir of Man who is living among us now. He is a man from the descendant of Husayn, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who is the last prophet sent by God had said about Mahdi:

قال النبی (صلی الله علیه وآله): “لاتذهب الدنیا حتّی یقومَ بأمر أُمتّی رجل من ولدالحسین یملأها عدلا کما ملئت ظلماً و جوراً

The world will not come to an end until a man from the descendants of Husayn takes charge of the affairs of the world and fills it with justice and equity as it is filled with injustice and tyranny.”
-Prophet Muhammad (PBUH); Bihar al-anwar, Vol. 51, P. 66

Muslim people also believes in Jesus (PBUH) as the holy prophet of God. Muslims believes that Jesus was not killed according to what is written in the holy Quran and he will reappear to help Imam Mahdi. Read more here.
