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.

Muharram , The Month of Imam Hussain

“The month of Muharram is  the month of Imam Hussain,…The month of attendance to the preservation of the religion, God’s religion, and resistance against those powers which confront the religion…”

Today is the first day of Muharram in the year 2019 and I’m writing this post from the holy city of Mashhad, from a place near to Imam Reza’s holy shrine; So Let’s offer our deepest condolence to Imam Reza (PBUH) and to Imam of our time for the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.

Muharram 2019 at the holy shrine of Imam Reza

Holy shrine of Imam Reza in Muharram 2019. I took this photo tonight, on the 1st of Sep 2019.

It is my first trip to Mashhad in Muharram. The holy shrine is covered in black and the people are also dressed in black for the mortyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain (PBUH).There are also some traditional camps held in the streets by people who love Imam Hussain to offer free tea, drink or food to the mourners and other people in the streets.

Yesterday I found that Imam Khamenei, the grand leader, also travelled to Mashhad to clean the holy grave of Imam Reza (PBUH) to prepare it for the beginig of Muharram.

The following statment is one of the grand leader’s speech about Muharram given in about two years ago :

“The month of Muharram is the month of Imam Hussain; It is the month of Hussaini, The month of all values embodied inside the Master of Martyrs (PBUH); the month of Martyrdom , the month of Jihad, the month of sincerity, the month of loyalty and the month of forgiveness; the month of attendance to the preservation of the religion, God’s religion, and resistance against those powers which confront the religion. The auspicious existence of the Master of Martyrs and the events of Ashura, Muharram and other such events are the embodiment of these values.

The belief that the uprising of the Master of Martyrs has been preserved Islam is really a correct belief as this event has been become livelier, day by day, in the course of time and after many centuries.

Today, this ceremony is being held in a warmer and more enthusiastic and comprehensive manner than a hundred years ago when there were no appearant opponents for the religious believes of people like today’s opponents. All these matters has a meaning. All these matters reveal certain truths and a movement which is moving forward in the world with the leadership of Hussain ibn Ali (PBUH). In-Sha-Allah this movement will go forward and will resolve the problems of nations.”

 

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
