TNFJ chief's message on Ashoora
The obedience of Rasool (SAW) is that follows what Rasool (SAW) says, love those Rasool (SAW) loves whom. And one of those great personalities loved by Rasool (SAW) is Hussain ibne Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) about whom there is a saying of the Holy Prophet (SAW):
Brethren in Iman!
Zibh (slaughter) is noun and Azeem (great) its adjective. The sheep slaughtered at Mina could not be great before Allah whether she grazed in garden of Heaven for 40 years and born without the abdomen of her mother, it could not be great. The second zibh (slaughter) in line with is that of Hazrat Abdullah (A.S.), father of the Holy Prophet (SAW). When Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.) prayed for male offspring by holding the door of Baitullah and sought "Nazar" that he would sacrifice one of his sons in way of Allah if his pray fulfilled, Allah blessed him with 10 sons. Therefore, he desired to fulfill his "Nazar", reached the courtyard of Baitullah and included names of all his sons in the draw so that to sacrifice the one winning the draw in way of Allah. The name of Hazrat Abdullah (A.S.) was drawn who was most beloved to Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.), he carried out the draw three times, and the name of Hazrat Abdullah (A.S.) was drawn every time.
When Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.) set out to slaughter Hazrat Abdullah (A.S.), all Quraish tribe gathered there and requested Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.) not to do so as if he did so, it would become a Sunnat (custom) for all generations to come and people would carry out slaughtering their sons. Hazrat Atika (S.A.) who was most beloved daughter of Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.) suggested that he should redraw by including 10 number of camels with the name of Abdullah (A.S.) and keep on increasing 10 number of camels each time, keep on draw unless it is won in the name of camels and slaughter the number of camels unveiled in the final draw, your "Nazar" will be fulfilled. All present on the occasion supported that suggestion and the 10th draw came out in favour of sacrificing 100 camels. The Quraish raised the Takbeer in loud a voice that the mountains of Tahama got a shivering. Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.) said he would draw again three times between Abdullah (A.S.) and 100 camels. Draw came in favour of 100 camels all the three times, therefore, Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.) slaughtered 100 camels and distributed the flesh amongst people. It was a proof that Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (A.S.) was "Hujjat-e-Khuda" who took his son Abdullah (A.S.), father of the Holy Prophet (SAW) to the place of altar following the Sunnat-e-Ibrahimi and when tried to slaughter him, he slaughtered 100 camels by the command of Allah through draw like Ibrahim (A.S.) was commanded to slaughter the sheep sent by Allah instead of his son Ismail (A.S.).
On the same basis, the Holy Prophet (SAW) had said
with pride, I am the son of two Zabihs. Allah saved Ismail (A.S.) and Abdullah (A.S.) from being slaughtered, and the supreme reason was the presence of Holy Prophet (SAW) in their holy loins. Hussain ibne Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) was termed
, Hussain (A.S.) was made the reason of presence of Holy Prophet (SAW), in other words if there was no Hussain (A.S.) then there was no Rasool (SAW). Had Hazrat Ismail (A.S.) slaughtered in Mina then the Holy Prophet (SAW) would not have stepped in this world. On this basis the Holy Prophet (SAW) said, I am from Hussain. Actually Hussain (A.S.) is not Fidya-e-Ismail (A.S.) but Fidya-e-Rasool (SAW) because a saying of Prophet (SAW) goes:
that Hassan (A.S.) and Hussain (A.S.) are chief of youngsters of Heaven and their parents are superior than them and the Holy Prophet (SAW) is the superior most in the universe. Therefore on this basis, Hussain (A.S.) is termed Fidya-e-Holy Prophet (SAW) and not that of Fidya-e-Hazrat Ismail (A.S.). It is Hussain (A.S.) who is Zibh-e-Azeem because after that
"We have kept him intact in the generation to come." In other words We have safely and particularly kept in the offspring of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and Zibh-e-Azeem is Hussain (A.S.) Fazand-e-Zahra (S.A.). The Holy Prophet (SAW) is dearest to Allah and Imam Hussain (A.S.) is most dear to Holy Prophet (SAW) who defended his Shariat and the dignity of humanity by presenting the unmatched eternal sacrifice along with his sacred offspring, and companions in the hot plains of Karbala on the Day of Ashoora and won the greatest title of Zibh-e-Azeem.
Farzand-e-Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) by accepting Shahadat after refusing the Be'ait of Yazid, declared upon the whole world that neither we gave in to Be'ait of any one nor our forefather gave in to Be'ait of any sinful and debauched person. The world witnessed that the huge volume of oppression, suppression and atrocities did not shatter his firmness and Hussain (A.S.) fulfilled that great heroic deed that was termed the source of guidance for the oppressed and have-nots.
Hussain (A.S.) said I find death nothing but a blessing. In my sight, leading life along with oppressors is nothing but misfortune and ungraceful.
I am the son of Ali (A.S.) who is the chief of people from Bani Hashim and for my pride that is enough. And Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) is the one who had said
the most beloved thing that I could get is death and he said:
The Muslim Ummah has given up that obligation today as a result of which was facing defame and humiliation and is the target of international terrorists i.e. Bush, Tony Blair, Vajpayee and Sharon, as many as 2.6 lakh American forces were standing in high alert in the Gulf to attack them putting the whole Islamic World in siege. The expansionist designs of these international terrorists are no more a secret. Although the NAM summit has rejected possible American attack a few days ago and OIC has also withdrawn its nod after its session but the international Taghoot is not ready to withdraw. She desires to cease the oil resources that could only be fulfilled if she dominates the whole world. If we desire to get rid of international terrorist and to thwart the designs of her agents then we would have to give priority to death in honour over life in disguise. The death in honour is Shahadat that is our inheritance and the live nations safeguard their inheritance.
