Hussaini sacrifice will remain bright till eternity, Moosavi on Muharram start

By: Salman Alvi

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the great and unmatched sacrifice rendered in Karbala for the survival of Allah’s religion and promotion of Shariat-e-Muhammadi is still alive despite passage of more than 13 centuries, and it will remain bright till eternity.

In a message issued here from the Maktab-e-Tashayyo’s headquarters on the beginning of Muharramul Haram, he said the Maktab-e-Hussain is ever green and the Hussaini echoes start banging in air the world over “Oh, people! Did you not see that righteousness is not being followed, there is no limit to misguidance and the situation has deteriorated to the extent that Momin (believer) is desirous of meeting Allah”.

In a situation when the whole humanity is replete with evil and bad things, this voice creates a new lease of life in the hearts of the have-nots and the invitation towards Amar Bil Ma’aroof and Nahi Anil Munker diverts attention towards good deeds, keeping away from evil and reform the enthusiasm and spirit.

Agha Moosavi said that Shahadat is our inheritance and every Momin is desirous of achieving it that is why Khasan-e-Illahi being always desirous of it never bowed down before oppression and brutality, and used to say Kalma-e-Haq on the point of spear. The Syed-o-Sardar of these Khasan-e-Illahi is Imam Hussain (A.S.) who stated the objective of his Qayam in these words: “I am doing Qayam not for war, conflict, neither my job is to create riot, and carry out oppression and brutality, my Qayam is for reforming the Ummah of my grandfather (Muhammad SAAW) and my objective is Amar Bil Ma’aroof and Nahi Anil Munker and following of my grandfathers.”

The TNFJ chief said that the month of Muharram gives new lease of life to the Muslim Ummah, therefore, it is obligatory for every Muslim and the faithful person to participate in Majalis, and Azadari processions, get pious teachings of Muhammad (SAAW) and Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.), commit to practise Islamic principles and Faroaat so that our internal spirit, struggle, jehad, and unity could arise.

That is why Imam Hussain (A.S.) addressing one thousand Sahaba and Tabaeen at Mina said, “You are watching what is happening to us, you are bound to tell whatever is said in this Majlis to your countrymen on your return”.

Some words of another sermon of Imam Hussain (A.S.) are: “Oh, people! You are known for knowledge, welfare, and care, your dignity is in the hearts of general public, gentlemen give respect to you, the old give respect to you, those who are not blessed by you, consider you people better and more honoured than themselves”.

Then said: “You seek welfare from Allah but I fear that you may not grip yourself in wrath of God because by the Grace of God you are placed in such a status that is not achieved by others, you enjoy honour in general public, but you are watching that promises made with God are being broken, but you are not upset although you become restless when anyone violates the promises made with your forefathers. No one is taking care of Rasool Allah’s (SAAW) trust, villages and settlements are replete with disabled and no one takes care of them, you do not care for your responsibilities, and you do not give attention to those who try to fulfil their responsibilities, are concerned of saving yourselves by ignoring oppression and cooperating with the oppressors. God has restricted to do these things and have said to restrict others but you are ignorant, you are hit hard because you have been deprived of the status you deserved and what was the right of the ulema. Alas! You understood and had struggled.”

Then he said: “Actually, the arrangements and issuance of commandments should have been in the hands of ulema who are aware of Halal and Haram and are the monitors of these jobs from Allah but your status has been snatched from you and it was done so because you kept a distance from righteousness and you are not united despite clear-cut arguments about Sunnah. Had you understood your responsibilities and bore difficulties then all authority would have been in your hands but you gave your place to the oppressors and handed over all your authority to them who treaded the path suspiciously, fulfilled their nefarious desires and imposed themselves upon you that you had been running from death and you loved your life that is ultimately to vanish. You gave have-nots and deprived in their hands thus some poor fellows became slaves and were crushed, some were deprived of food. Now they are doing what they like throughout the country, earn bad name by following their desires, adopt bad habits and do not care Zaat-e-Illahi, their Khateeb cries hoarse in every village and settlement and they have become the lone owners of Allah’s earth, no one is to stop them from doing so, they all are under their control, they could put their hands on anyone and no one could stop them. Some are violent, insisting and poor and some are unaware of Allah and the Hereafter. Did it not surprising? That country is in the hands of those whose job is to loot and plunder, and such people have become rulers who do not become soft on the faithfuls.”

Imam Hussain (A.S.) says: Why a few people have occupied Baitul Maal of Muslims, why Allah’s Halals are being termed Harams and Harams as Halals? Why people have been divided? People are hit by poverty but a few people have become so fat after devouring all they could that they could not rise in their own place. In another Khutba, Imam Aali Muqam (A.S.) quoting a Hadees of his grandfather (SAAW) said: “If a time comes when Baitul Mall of Muslims reaches that stage and Allah’s Harams are declared Halals and the situation becomes like it is now, then according to a saying of the Rasool (SAAW) when a Muslim is aware of these situations and remains quiet then it is justifiable for Allah to take that person to the place that is the place of the oppressors. I have the sense of accountability and in these situations; I (Hussain) am most responsible.”

Agha Hamid Moosavi made it clear that Imam (A.S.) gave preference to death in honour over life in dishonour. Had Imam Hussain (A.S.) any other objective e.g. government or power then Hussain (A.S.) would not have been so great. Today have-nots all over the world including Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and Lebanon consider the Hussaini movement as their source for inspiration because the sacrifice of life offered by Hussain (A.S.) was for the protection and defence of Islam foundation of which rests on righteousness, that is the central point of knowledge, that disseminates wisdom and that is such a lightening candle that gives enlightenment to the whole world, is such a highest minaret that imbibed human beings with greatness. That is the greatest collection of principles and Faroaat that provides satisfaction to those who are in search of righteousness and reality.

The TNFJ chief said that there is a saying of Maula-e-Kainat (A.S.) that goes: “Oh, people! Beware that Allah has declared Islam a path towards His blessings and the highest standard of His worshipness and worship. He has showered it with high commandments, great principles, strongest arguments, undeniable supremacy, and recognized wisdom. Now it is your job to maintain the greatness showered by Allah and practice it with sincerity of purpose, do justice with His ideologies, and fulfil His commandments and Sayings correctly and give it a suitable place in your life”.

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Imam Hussain (A.S.) became the source of survival for the whole humanity by offering his sacrifice and that of his 72 die-hard near and dear ones and blessed it with a new lease of life that is why the whole humanity is proud of Hussain (A.S.) even today and considers him its hero because Hussain (A.S.) lived for religion, Shariat and humanity, gave life for promotion of religion and Shariat and for the supremacy of humanity. Therefore, we would have to adopt the path of Hussain (A.S.) if we have to save the honour and dignity of humanity today, he added.
