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.

*The complete quote in Arabic language:

الأمالی للطوسی عن مُحَمَّد بن مسلم عن أبی عبد اللّه جعفر بن مُحَمَّد [الصادق ](ع): إنَّ الحُسَینَ بنَ عَلِی(ع) عِندَ رَبِّهِ عَزِّ وجَلَّ، ینظُرُ إلی مَوضِعِ مُعَسکرِهِ، ومَن حَلَّهُ مِنَ الشُّهَداءِ مَعَهُ، وینظُرُ إلی زُوّارِهِ، وهُوَ أعرَفُ بِحالِهِم، وبِأَسمائِهِم وأسماءِ آبائِهِم، وبِدَرَجاتِهِم ومَنزِلَتِهِم عِندَ اللّهِ عَزَّ وجَلَّ مِن أحَدِکم بِوَلَدِهِ، وإنَّهُ لَیری مَن یبکیهِ، فَیستَغفِرُ لَهُ، ویسأَلُ آباءَهُ(ع) أن یستَغفِروا لَهُ.

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)

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]
