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.

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.

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) :

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.

الامالی (شیخ صدوق)، ج 1، ص 287

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)

The leader thanked Iraqian people for their hospitality and he also said that: ” The message of Imam Hussain (PBUH) is the message of saving the world. The magnificent Arbaeen movement is spreading this message in the world, and this movement should be fortified day after day…”

Day of Ashura | Why did Imam Hussain move to Karbala?

Why did imam Hussain move to Karbala? Why did Imam Hussain rise up? Did Imam Hussain sacrifice his life?

Ashura

Ashura – The holy shrine of Imam Hussain (PBUH) in Karbala

Imam Hussian (PBUH) was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, who left the Hajj pilgrimage and moved to Iraq with all of his family and friends, then he was surrounded by  Yazid’s army of 30,000 people on his way, in the land called Karbala, so there were no way out for Imam Hussain and all his 72 friends except defending themselves. They fight with no water for three days and all of them were killed and beheaded on the day of Ashura and all their women and children were captured and moved to Syria along with the heads.

Did Imam Hussain knew his fate in Karbala? 

Not only Imam Hussain knew that he will be killed on the day of Ashura in Karbala but also all the Prophets of God knew about the detail of this catastrophe and all cried for Imam Hussain (PBUH).

Ashura

Ashura – The name of Imam Hussain (PBUH) in Araic

But why did Imam Hussain move to Karbala?

There were three causes for Imam Hussain’s movement or in a better word, Imam Hussain revolution which we have already explained it in a post before. The causes were gained from a book written by a great Iranian philosopher and cleric, professor Mortaza Motahari.

The summary of these three causes were as follows:

  1. Imam Hussain moved because he did not not want to pay allegiance to the tyranny of the time,
  2. About 100,000 people of Kufa had sent 18,000 letters to Imam Hussain and invited him to Iraq to re-establish an Islamic government,
  3. Imam Hussain wanted to reform the Muslim community of his grandfather and promote virtue and prevent vice

Which one was the main reason of Imam Hussain’s revolution? Read More…

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]
