Cries of ‘Tahaddamat wallahi arkaan al hoda’ in the sky of Kufa

By: Ismail Zabeeh

KUFA, Iraq: It was Masjid-e-Kufa when in the 40 Hijri, 19 Ramadan dawn an evil man Ibne Moljem struck a poison-dipped sword on the neck of Ameer-ul Mo’minin Al-Imam Ali (AS) while he was in prostration of the dawn (fajr) prayer.

Imam Ali (AS) at that time said ‘fuztu wa Rabbil Ka’abah’ [By God I have succeeded] while the angel Gabriel cried announcing his martyrdom ‘tahaddamat wallahi arkaanal hoda’ [By God the pillars of guidance have been collapsed].

Every year, a grand commemoration of the martyrdom anniversary of Al-Imam Ali (AS) is held at Kufa mosque attended byflocks of mourners.         

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
