(bismillah)

21st Zilhijj being the yom e shahadat of sons of Hazrat Muslim bin Aqeel(a.s),we as Shia of Ali(a.s) need to remember their shahadat ,their sacrifice they gave to uphold Islam.

Let us first give attention to the Holy Quran which is our guide in the darkness of life.It shows us light,guidance and makes us a good muslim.Here is Surah Naas with its translation.

Surah Naas

1. Qul 'A`ūdhu Birabbi An-Nās

2. Maliki An-Nās

3.IlahinNas .

4.Min Sharril waswasil Khannas.

5. Al-Ladhī Yuwaswisu Fī Şudūri An-Nās

6. Mina Al-Jinnati Wa An-Nās

translation

1. Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of men,

2. The King of men

3.The God of men.

4. From the evil of the whisperings of the slinking (Shaitan),

5. Who whispers into the hearts of men,

6. From among the jinn and the men.

The first ayat speaks of Allah as being the Lord of men.It actually speaks about our taking refuge in the Almighty Allah.But first just concentrate on the words "be rabbin naas" in the first ayat .So when a person reads this he/she should keep in mind that Allah is the Lord of men and not just Lord of a particular group or sect .We must be careful in our interaction with almost all the people irrespective of the group/sect/faith he belongs to.We must not sin with a non muslim too.Because it is mentioned in the Quran that Allah is 'lord of men".It means He is everybody's Allah.He is everybody's God,be a person rich or poor,fair or black,tall or short,fat or slim,educated or uneducated.So while interacting with people we should always keep in mind that the person we are interacting with also has a big power (i.e Allah) to rely on and ask for revenge if something wrong is done to them.But liitle do people bother.

Next when we read the 2nd ayat,we know that he is "King of men".When we believe in his being the king we will never want to pass a judgement about who is right and who is wrong and obviously will stay away from punishing people.Because it is the King who decides between the two fighting parties as to who is right and who is wrong.The King rewards the good one and punishes the bad one.Remembering Allah as the King of all men,a person will even though very rich will not decide himself and punish anybody.Such a believer would obviously leave matters upto Allah and restrain from harsh behaviour.But afsos,this holy Quran was forgotten and kept behind only after a few years it came.People who had amassed lot of wealth through unIslamic means were greedy for more riches and power and hence the event of Karbala took place.We all know that the Shahadat of Hazrat Muslim(a.s) is considered as the beginning of Karbala.Condolences on the shahadat of his sons Janab Muhammed(r.a) and Janab Ibrahim(r.a).We cannot just forget how brutally these people were murdered for a petty amount.

May Allah's choicest reward be for these Shuhada(a.s).

Here I give a short essay on the masaib of the two sons of Hazrat Muslim(a.s) ----

Hazrat Muslim had taken with him his two sons Muhammad and Ibraheem. After Hazrat Muslim was killed, Muhammad and Ibraheem were also arrested and put into a dungeon. It is said that Muhammad was just eight years old and Ibraheem was ten years old.

On the 20th of Dhul-Hajj in 60 Hijrah, when the jailer came to give the children their evening meal, he saw them saying their prayers. The jailer waited. When the boys had finished their prayers, he asked them who they were. When the jailer learnt that they were the sons of Muslim Ibne Aqil and the grandsons of Hazrat Ali, he let them escape. The children came out of the prison.

The children said their prayers and went to sleep. In the evening Muhammad woke up and started crying. Ibraheem asked him why he was crying. Muhammad said "I saw our father in a dream. He was calling out for us". Ibraheem said, "Brother, be patient. I also saw our father in a dream beckoning us to him". They both started weeping. Harith, who had come back, heard the children crying. He opened the door and asked the children who they were. On learning they were the sons of Muslim Ibne Aqil, he tied both the boys to a pillar. Harith's wife tried to stop him, but he beat her up. Harith wanted to collect the reward which Ibne Ziyad had offered to anyone capturing the children.

The children spent the whole night tied to the pillar. In the morning Harith dragged them to the river-bank. He took out his sword. Ibraheem asked him, "Harith, are you going to kill us?" Harith said "Yes!" Ibraheem said, "In that case give us time to finish our morning prayers". The two boys said their prayers. They raised their hands and cried out "Inna Lillaah wa Inna Ilay-hi Rajeeoon! O Allah we are coming to you. Give our mother courage when she hears of our death and judge between us and our killers!!" Both the sons pleaded to Harith to kill them first and leave the other or kill the other brother afterwards.Muhammed said"O Harith kill me first since I am the elder brother".Ibrahim started crying.Ibrahim said "O Harith you kill me first.I am the younger one of the two.Please leave my elder brother.Kill me first atleast so that I may not see my brother being beheaded.Please kill me first".Hearing this Muhammed started crying loudly.Harith scolded both of them and ordered them to keep silence.They continued pleading and praying.They read the kalma.The sword came down! There were splashes of blood in the water.Harith beheaded them both and threw the bodies of Muhammed and Ibrahim into the river. :cry: Two young bodies were seen floating away in the waters of the river Furaat.

Inna Lillaahi wa Inna Ilay-hi Rajeeoon.Ala laanatullahe komiz zalimeen.

Marsiya in Urdu

Marsiya Text

(Pisraan e Hazrat Muslim)

Darbar mein jab katke yateemoun ke sar aaye

Doobe hue doh chand lahu mein nazar aaye

Gul padgaya Muslim ke yeh laqte jigar aaye

Gurbat zada-o bey watan-o bay pidar aae

Shamsheere sitam chal gayi un nauhagaroun par

Kya bekasi-o yaas barasti hae saroun par

Haakim se yeh tab kehne laga haaris-e badhkaam

Sar bachhoun ke laya hoon miley qillat-o inaam

Pehchaanle Muslim ke pisar hain yahi gulfaam

Yeh woh hain jo Zindaan se bhaage thay sare shaam

Main dhoondta phirta tha na haath aate they dono

Paate thay jidhar raah nikal jaate thay dono

Haakim ne kaha tu ne kahan phir inhe paaya

Tareekiye shab mein nazar aata nahin saaya

Woh jodh ke haathoun ko suqan lab peh yeh laaya

Zowja ne meri tha inhe hujre mein chupaaya

Mein kehta tha dil mein ke kahan jaake chupe hain

Iski na qabar thi mere ghar aake chupe hain

Az bas ke thaka tha mujhe neend aagayi us dum

Kya dekhta hoon aalame roya mein basadh gham

Ek hujre mein do tifl nazar aate hain baham

Sar peet ke kehte hain woh ba deedaye purgham

Aafat mein phanse hum dare zindaan se nikal ke

Maloom hua padhgaye phande mein ajal ke

Chillaye jo woh haye pidar kehke dilafgaar

Tha neend mein ya aankh meri khul gayi ek baar

Khush hogaya mein taalaye qifta huve bedaar

Bistar se utha haath mein kheinche huve talwaar

Ek hujre mein Muslim ke woh pyaare nazar aaye

Bala-e zameen arsh ke taare nazar aaye

Jakda jab inhe maine toh karte thay yeh faryaad

Mehmaan tere ghar aaye hain hum bekaso nashaad

Bin baap ke hain hum pah taras kha sitam eejaad

Le minnatein karte hain teri chod de jallaadh

Kar rahem ke masoom hain dukh paaye hain zaalim

Hum chupne ko daaman mein tere aaye hain zaalim

Maine kaha turn dono ke baba ka hae kya naam

Rokar kaha kehte hain unhein Muslim-e nakaam

Bejurm-o-qata unke gale par chali sumsaam

Hum jab se chute baap se hum ko nahin aaraam

Dehshat se teri seene mein dil hilte hain zaalim

Ab dheeli rasan kar ke gale chilte hain zaalim

Yeh sunte hi masoomon par ghussa mujhe aaya

Hujre se inhein khenchte daalanh mein laya

In dono ne jo zulm na dekha tha dikhaya

Mujrim ki tarah baandh diya rahem na khaya

Bahar unhein le aaya jo zulfoun ko pakad kar

Istada kiya choab se rassi mein jakad kar

Samjhana woh hargiz na mera dhyan mein laayi

Jhunjhla ke usey teghe sitam maine lagaayi

Ek vaar mein saa-adh se giri kat ke kalaai

Chilla ke lagi dene payambar ki duhaai

Hae hae mere aqa meri imdad ko pahuncho

Ae shahe garibaan meri faryaad ko pahuncho

Jab maar chuka usko toh masoomon ko kheincha

Pakde hue zulfein unhe laya lab-e darya

Rokar kaha bachoun ne hamein qatl na karna

Marega jo hum ko toh tere kya haath lagega

Bekas hain musafir hain aur awara watan hain

Yeh kya hae saza kum ke giraftar-e mehan hain

Kar reham sitamgaar gharibi pah hamari

Devega sila iska tujhe Khaliqe bari

Le ankh na dikhla nahin ab karne ke zaari

Chal kar sare bazar hamein bechde naari

Bach jayenge hum khilat-o-zar payega zaalim

Gar qatl kiya hume toh pachtaega zaalim

Yeh sun ke badha mai joonhi khenche huve talwaar

Pehloo mein biradar ke biradar gira ek baar

Main chati pah ek tifl ki akhir hua aswaaar

Jab halq pah bacche ki rakha qanjar-e khoonqar

Ek hashr bapa hogaya khanjar ke chale par

Bhai ne gala rakhdiya bhai ke gale par

    • @eThErEaL Surely the Arabs possessed some virtues before the advent of Prophethood, but we shouldn't fool ourselves into believing that these virtues outstripped their many sins and vices. As Ja'far ibn Abu Talib capably summarized in his address to the King of Abyssinia,  “We were a people of Jahiliyyah, worshipping idols, eating the flesh of dead animals, committing abominations, neglecting our relatives, doing evil to our neighbours and the strong among us would oppress the weak…” Their actions are repudiated time and time again by the Qur'an. "And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it." [3:103] “And when the news of a female (child) is brought to any of them, his face becomes dark, and he is filled with inward grief! He hides himself from the people because of the evil of that whereof he has been informed. Shall he keep her with dishonour or bury her in the earth? Certainly, evil is their decision” [al-Nahl 16:58]   Now I don't mean to be racist towards the Arab race, and nor are the practices of the people of jahiliyyah reflective of most Arabs today. But it seems to me that it took the best of the 124,000 prophets to bring the Arabs of that time into line for a handful of years- before they rebelled against his teachings once more as soon as he passed away, all for the greed of power and authority.
    • As a historical source I think it is fair to use. We may not have rijal information on all of the chains; that's partly because our rijal books are mostly focused on hadith narrators of the second hijri century - companions of the mid to late Imams. Abu Mikhnaf himself was not close to the Imams, he was a descendant of a companion of Amir al-Mu'mineen (as), but he is relied upon by Waqidi, Tabari, Shaykh al-Mufid, and other Sunni and Shia historians. It's one of the earliest accounts of the event. He died (d. 157 AH) in the early part of Musa al-Kadhim's Imamate, and his chains to the event are very short. Since his text is about a public event, and Najashi called him a scholar of Kufa in his time, and since he was not criticized until much later Sunni scholars like Dhahabi, I feel that it is a good source. There are some discrepancies, and so it's not holy scripture, but I found it to be very useful when I first converted. Here is a good post on the topic: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235023655-why-is-abu-mikhnaf-reliable/?do=findComment&comment=2716964
    • I don't quite understand this.  Hypothetically, let's say one's father is against you getting married, so if you attempt to change your wali to a grandfather or an uncle who says yes to the marriage, will it still be illegitimate?  And there are some fathers who won't let them get married no matter what the reason. What then?
