The first, second & third in Ziyarat Ashura?

Salam.

I've spoked to a few people who say that in Ziyarat Ashura, the "first", "second" & "third" do not actually refer to the 3 in question since our Imams never cursed.

Anyone here hold the same view? If yes, then who are these 3 being referred to here, and who is the fourth?

Allah knows best. But it is really obvious that the first, second, and third are those we all know.

since our Imams never cursed.

are you sure of that? re read the ziyarah and see all the la3in :)

and who is the fourth?

the fourth could be mouawiyah(la).

It is narrated from Imam Baqir(as) that he told his companion to try to read the ziyarah everyday once if he can do it.

There is a story that says that a woman used to read the ziyarah daily. When she was buried in a graveyard which was full of evil people, a sheikh in her village saw that the punishment had been lifted from that graveyard. All that because she read the ziyarah :D :D

Bro Ali, try reading the Quraan. You will find that Allah subhanah wa ta3aala curses (la3n) the monafeqeen, the kufar, the jews etc.So if la3n was bad, you wouldn't find la3n in the Quraan.

It is known that the Prophet pbuh said " la3an Allah man takhallaf 3an jaish Osama" -may Allah curse those who retire from Osama's army. And it is reported (in all books even the Sunni ones) that Abu Bakr and Omar were one of the main figures who retreated from Osama's army.

Lo! Those who hide the proofs and the guidance which We revealed, after We had made it clear to mankind in the Scripture: such are accursed of Allah and accursed of those who have the power to curse.

Quran: Surah: 2 Ayah: 159

See? Not only Allah curses.

you wanted examples? Well, Al Abbas(as) cursed that guy who came and told him that he will be safe if he betrayed Imam Hussein(as) and he said: may Allah curse you and curse your safety.

hmmm also a hadeeth that says: may Allah curse those do amr bil ma'roof and dont do that ma'roof. may Allah curse those who do nahi 'an al munka and do the munkar.

what else is there?

I hope thats enough :)

Dear brother Ali, I am soo glad that you brought this up. I used to wonder who it really refers.

In my oponion, I think we all know who it refers to. I mean com'on it cant get any clearer. It is obvious. But I still have another question. Read this:

ÇóááøÜåõãøó ÇáúÚóäú Çóæøóáó ÙÇáöã Ùóáóãó ÍóÞøó ãõÍóãøóÏ æóÂáö ãõÍóãøóÏ æóÂÎöÑó ÊÇÈöÚ áóåõ Úóáì Ðáößó¡

O Allah, curse the first tyrant who oppressed the right of Muhammad and his family, and the last one who followed him on that.

So, now my question is, who is this first tyrant who is being refered to in here?

O Allah, curse particularly the first tyrant and begin with him first, then the second, the third, and the fourth. O Allah, curse the fifth one, Yazid.

If we say that these three refer to the first three, then who does this refer to "the first tyrant who oppressed the right of Muhammad and his family"?

One more thing I noticed is that the first tyrant who is being referend to here must be someone who was living during the Prophet (saww)'s era. Also, notice that this tyrant oppressed the right of not only the 'Aal of Muhammad' but the Muhammad himself (saww). From here we can understand who this tyrant refers to. maybe the first one? but what about these three "O Allah, curse particularly the first tyrant and begin with him first, then the second, the third"? who do they refer to?

I hope I am not making you confused. I do not know. Maybe someone willlll shed a light on this.

wasalaaam

    • I don't disagree with anything you're saying, i'm just saying every place has its good and bad, and people often refer to the west as evil all the time, it is not in many ways, like the ways I pointed out. Things like socialist policies in education, health and social security/pensions are very islamic principles. A lot of the West's policies come from judeo-christian values, which aren't very different from Islam. Yes, it is true they have dropped a lot of religious laws now, like allowing abortions and lgbt marriages, but some laws have still stuck around that have roots in abrahamic tradition. No society can claim to be perfect. Iran is an islamic country, but I'm sure a lot of stuff happens underground too, and I'm sure there is still corruption within the government. Ultimately, bro, there is no perfect society, what's important is that you can practice islam freely and to the best of your ability and I think it is possible in many of the western countries, not possible in many of the sunni majority nations. 
    • well, for me personally right now...  I don't know how to prove hadith.  I sincerely honestly dont. Just because a hadith doesn't contradict the Quran doesnt mean its not fabricated.  People intending to twist and corrupt need merit or truths to spin a lie.  One can use something true in the quran like say Umar,   who says I believe in this verse " [verse]" and a good follower of it, but you don't know if he did, for example. It's difficult, and dang near impossible to "follow" and prove those hadiths are true (well, really impossible). I'm just thinking here and presenting my ideas. I would think A hadith that doesn't comtradict the Quran is off to a good start in terms of authenticity.  Reading hadith to understand historical context even if its not authentic actually may be beneficial.  It may explain and connect dots, for understanding why things happened the way they did. Though I've proven (in my personal perspective my long essay of a post) that Muhammad SAW did not err in delivering the message, but may have very well have subjectively  "err'd" in other matters (like when Allah indicates directly that the prophet may be disobeyed by women if they determine his command was not good) (60:12) And then you have 9:50 above, do you think its a good idea to follow any hadiths?  Maybe read them to gain historical understanding but follow them? Eh, its up to you or anyone to make that determination for themselves. I can't judge.   
    • A westernized version of islam? What does that actually mean?  The only interpretation/things I can think of are negative.  Does it mean a version of islam where western culture and values are integrated into it? I do not see the need for that. In the middle east, where you see muslims lacking in any area it is not because they do not apply "good" western values, its because they are applying the bad things of their own culture, meanwhile not caring about what Islam says. Dishonesty, cheating, poor work morale, back talking, not caring for the poor, being unfair, corruption in politics, these are things you might find in the middle east, but they are not because islam is lacking anything, it is because people are not adhering to it, why? Because that would take effort and sincerity. I do not think islam per say is lacking anything and that it needs to change a single inch in any direction. Times change, that is true, but humans does not.
    • Good luck in organic chemistry. My daughter was selected to do a STEM summer in a native Ed. program a few years back. Loved it. The term was not around when I was in school because I'm older than dirt now. But I did pass regular chem.
