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.

Send blessing upon the prophet Muhammad by Salawat

This post includes some images of Salawat. Salawat is actually a prayer in which we ask God to send blessings on the prophet Muhammad and his family and we also ask God to hasten their reappearance by the end of it and it means that we ask God to hasten the return of the last savior of man, Imam Mahdi.

There is a verse in the holy Quran [33:56] which says that God and the angels send blessings on the prophet Muhammad and at the following, God also asks the believers to send the blessings on the prophet.

Reciting and writing Salawat is recommended a lot.

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.]

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.

The Promised Saviour : Imam Mahdi or Prophet Jesus ?

Today , the people of the world need a saviour who saves the world from the disease, poverty ,hunger, racism, injustice and inequity.

The saviour is promised in all religions and all we should do is to ask God to send him back to us.

but who is the saviour of the mankind?

Muslim people believe that the saviour is a man from the descendants of Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson; The man who is called Mahdi or Imam Mahdi according to the quotes by the prophet Muhammad (PBUH). 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.

But what about the holy prophet Jesus?

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) :

Imam Mahdi

Imam Mahdi and Prophet Jesus

Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] :

Mahdi [PBUH] is from my progeny and when he reappears, Jesus [PBUH], the son of Mary, will descend to help him. He will follow Mahdi [PBUH] and pray behind him.

Al-Amali, Al-Shaykh Al-Saduq, Vol. 1, p. 287

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.

When is Arbaeen 2019 ?

Arbaeen

Arbaeen

Every year, millions of people from different countries flock to the city of Karbala for the pilgrimage of the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson on the day of Arbaeen. Even non-Muslim people take part in this massive march.

Lots of these people prefer to walk more than 80 kilometers from Najaf toward Karbala for the pilgrimage. This happens not only because of their true love toward Imam Hussain, but also because this is a best way to introduce Imam Hussain to the world; a way to show their preparation for the arrival of Imam Mahdi, the last savior of man from descendant of Imam Hussain.

If you decide to take part in this journey of love, you should know that you do not need to worry about drink, food or even accommodation during this journey. One backpack is enough to start as the hospitality of Iraqian people toward the pilgrims of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on the way toward Karbala is amazing and makes you to experience a new different social life style on Arbaeen.

 

The text in the above image is taken from a quote by Imam Sadigh (PBUH) :

قال الصادق ع: مَنْ أَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَیْنِ ع مَاشِیاً کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِکُلِّ خُطْوَةٍ أَلْفَ حَسَنَةٍ وَ مَحَا عَنْهُ أَلْفَ سَیِّئَةٍ وَ رَفَعَ لَهُ أَلْفَ دَرَجَةٍ

Whoever walks for the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (PBUH), God will record 1000 awards for his/her every step and will wipe out his/her 1000 sins and will give him/her higher ranking number [in the heaven] by 1000

امام صادق(ع):‏ کسى که پیاده به زیارت امام حسین(ع) برود خداوند به هر قدمى که بر مى‏ دارد هزار حسنه برایش ثبت و هزار گناه از وى محو مى‏فرماید و هزار درجه، مرتبه‏اش را بالا مى‏برد

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…”
