Greater Sajdah (Prostration)

Recommended Posts

Salaam alai kum,

There is no wrong or right answer here but just something to ponder over, reflect and shares thoughts and ideas. This is meant as a way to praise our Imams.

Imam Ali (a.s.) was martyred while in sajdah.
Imam Hussain (a.s.) was martyred in sajdah.

If you had to compare the two, how would you?

I don't mean which is better but how they are different yet similar.

brother @Kazemi - I would love it if you can write a poem on this...

It started from Imam Ali (a.s) and ended on Imam Hussain (a.s). 

 

SAJDA (IMAM HUSSAIN A.S)

Ada hua jau sar-e-dasht-e-karbala sajda

Na hosaka kabhi phir aisa bakhuda sajda

Na tha Hussain(A.s) ka sajda zameen-e-maqtal per

ada hua tha Ali(A.s) ka ruka hua sajda

Namaz hashr talak surkhuru rahegi ab

Hussain(A.s) kar gaye aisa lahoo bhara sajda

Nabi (pbuh) ka sajda hai tareekh mein taweel magar

Taweel tar hai abhi tak Hussain(A.s) ka sajda

Utha zameen se tau meraj payee naizay ne

Hussainyat se hai mamnoon-e-irtaqa sajda

Hai Sajdagah-e-Mawwaddat pe Hur ka sar aisay

Misaal-e-phool ho jesay rakha hua sajda

Pisar ke khoon se wazoo kar ke jau kia shah ne

Zamana la saka na aisa doosra sajda

Hussain(A.s) teri jabeen se hai abaroo meri

Bawaqt-e-asr Sar-e-Dasht bol utha sajda

Ada karo kabhi Khusnudy-e-Khuda ke liye

Tau Zair-e-Taigh bhi de jaye ga maza sajda

Baqa-e-Deen ke liye jis ki chin gayee chadar

Rida ko us ki na kyunkar kare wafa sajda

Baroz-e-Hashr uthaoon ga sar ko sajde say

Ada Hussain(A.s) ne yeh keh ke kar liya sajda

Woh khak khak nahin sajdagah hai ab tau

Zameen-e-Karbobala pe rawa hua sajda

Azan hai Nauha tau farsh-e-aza hai janamaz

Rehan seenon pe Matam hai haath ka Sajda.

سبحان الله

Salam Alaikum, oh brother who has called me,

Indeed,

By the Almighty Lord,

A poem is equal to a decree for me,

May Allah bless you.

POEM:

In the Name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful,

zuljana-on-the-battlefield-of-karbala.jp

By Allah al-Badi,

This day is severe,

Curse be upon the enemies of the Ahlul Bayt,

Alayhi Salam,

 

By Allah al-Hadi,

The night was severe,

How dark were the tears,

Oh Shia of Ibrahim,

 

By Allah al-Hakim,

For every human is judgement,

No creation shall escape,

Oh dreadful soul,

 

By Allah al-Kabeer,

How fragile are my good deeds

The example is the Ahlul Bayt

I am but a sinner,

 

By Allah Al-Lateef,

The Omnipotent and the Sovereign,

By Him is the final return,

Peace be upon the Ahlul Bayt.

 

Oh Asadullah,

Alas, Alas!

You are my teacher by Allah,

You are in command,

Oh Haydar,

By you came the Revolution,

Now my back has been broken,

For your sacrifice has reached me,

Blessed be your knowledge,

May I never be separated from you,

Oh Ali!

 

Oh ash-Shahid,

Alas, Alas!

Blessed be your father in tears,

Curse be upon your enemies,

And every arrow they fired upon you,

Oh at-Tayyib,

Where was I when you were in need,

By the humanity and the creations,

You were the first made weep,

Before your sacred body being wronged,

Now my back has been broken,

For your sacrifice has reached me,

Oh al-Wafi,

Upon you be peace,

Oh Husayn!

 

By the truth of Yaseen,

There are no words except for grief,

Peace be upon the party of Husayn,

Peace be upon the party of Ali,

Cursed be their enemies,

For by the voices of Ali and Husayn,

Their voices made the worlds shaken,

By the Merciful of the most Merciful,

By Al-Matin.

Amazing my brother. You are truly talented. 

Since the topic was sajdah, I love how you included Allah in all the verses along with Imam Ali (as) and Hussain (as).

The lofty status of the Poets of AhlulBayt isn't always appreciated. May you long continue to enlighten and inspire us with your eloquent poetry.

    • Feminists typically use terms like "male-dominated culture" so I just wanted to ask if you are a feminist. Also patriarchy is not inherently bad. No matter how you look at it Islam promotes a form of a patriarchal society. So just so you know. However I am not defending the patriarchy of Desi culture. Which is what we are talking about. I am advocating the patriarchy of an Ideal Shia Islamic social society (Yes these have existed historically to various extents).    Also I have seen housewives who can cook a mean paratta and clean well and still they are degraded by not only other women but by men, who tend to gravitate towards free-loving women. They are not appreciated by men as well. I am talking of the West, so I will let others respond on how accurate your statements are about the east. Something tells me you are still projecting and exaggerating.    Again, when you use the word "men" you are referring to a specific type of men. So don't generalize like the OP did. Also modesty is also a concern as well. I have seen this and I can give anecdotes as well to prove this. But let us not play the anecdote game. You would be surprised what western Muslim women, especially in college, get up to. So let us not pretend Muslim women are angels. Remember, for every Muslims man who fornicates there is often times another Muslim woman willing to do it with them. So don't think it is a "guy" issue, it is also a gal issue as well. Also there may be more reasons than the ones you and I listed too as to why an eastern man wants to marry a western woman, but it has everything to do with the guy trying to "make-up" for his guilty conscious and it may manifest in ways such as he thinking he can make it up by having his wife cook and clean (in a weird and twisted way, after all humans are psychologically complex creatures). But your cynical explanation makes it sound is as if Muslimah are dainty little flowers who earn money through a job and when they get married their hubby goes all Hollywood mustache twirling villain on them, or goes Ape on them out of nowhere. This is an incredibly naive and biased analysis and only ends up creating more questions rather than answering them.     Also you just answered your question. Replace men with "cultural Desi men". But you saying "men" is generalizing and I can also name "hundreds of examples" that run counter to yours. As can anyone here. No one here is defending Desi (primarily hindu influenced culture). But you seem to think we are.   On a tangential note Muslims nowadays are willing to blame Islam rather than Hindus for the defiencies that are present in Desi culture. Despite the fact that most of the deleterious behaviors of Desi culture had its origins in ancient Hindu culture that ancient Muslims picked up on. "Purdah" is a famous example of something that quite likely originated amongst  and was widely propagated  by Hindu culture and that Muslims adopted as well but tend to confuse with Islam in incorrect ways (the state of the prophets wives was not the same of a random Muslim woman back then and now,  most scholars agree on this).    Also you went on a tangent about working and being modest. Read my first post on the topic to know that Muslim women ALWAYS worked for 1400+ years in some job or another but had time for their family and household responsibilities. Even Umar Ibn al Khattab of all people hired a woman as "head of market operations ".  And above all else these Muslim women only thought of their job as a job and never let their job or income define them. I don't care if you earn money or not. You are not special or free or liberated or any other adjective you can name. And historically Muslim women used to be doctors way back even in the 1000s but never used to let their career define them. Except that they heal people. But modern day feminism does define a womans worth by her income and somehow she is "not tame" because she earns money. That is laughable. Sister "notme" did a good job of explaining the problem with people like you and your motivations to work. 
    • Sermon 1: Praise is due to Allah whose worth cannot be described…. In this sermon he recalls the creation of Earth and Sky and the creation of Adam and in it he mentions the Hajj Praise is due to Allah whose worth cannot be described by speakers, whose bounties cannot be counted by calculators and whose claim (to obedience) cannot be satisfied by those who attempt to do so, whom the height of intellectual courage cannot appreciate, and the divings of understanding cannot reach; He for whose description no limit has been laid down, no eulogy exists, no time is ordained and no duration is fixed. He brought forth creation through His Omnipotence, dispersed winds through His Compassion, and made firm the shaking earth with rocks. https://www.al-islam.org/nahjul-balagha-part-1-sermons/sermon-1-praise-due-Allah-whose-worth-cannot-be-described#creation-universe
    • https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/encyclopedia/content.aspx?ContentTypeID=90&ContentID=P02630 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primitive_reflexes http://islamic-laws.com/eatinghabbit.htm According to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), inviting relatives, friends and neighbours for a dinner (Valeema) is sunnat on five occasions - Marriage, Aqiqa (first shaving of the child's head), Khatna (circumcision), when one has bought a new house or made a new house and lastly, when a visitor returns from travel. For Vegeterians Unless they choose a proper balance of foods, strict vegetarians are at risk for several deficiencies, especially vitamin B12. The other nutrients at risk are riboflavin, calcium, iron, and the essential amino acids lysine and methionine. Vegetarian children not exposed to sunlight are at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Zinc deficiency can occur in vegans because the phytic acid in whole grains binds zinc, and there is little zinc in fruits and vegetables. Since B12 is present only in animal foods and a limited number of specially fortified foods, vegans should probably take B12 supplements prescribed by a physician. Further, the symptoms of vegetarianism may include protein deficiency, amino acid and mineral depletion coupled with chronic low levels of energy. Another tradition describes green kasni leaves as a very good vegetable. Not a single leaf of kasni is devoid of a drop of water of heaven and therefore when one eats one should not shake it. It is also stated that kasni leaves (endive) are superior to all vegetables in the same manner as Ahlul Bait (a.s.) are superior to all mankind. Kasni leaves when eaten cause birth of male children who are also beautiful. When a person was ill with fever and headache, the Imam (a.s.) asked kasni leaves to be beaten in pulp, spread on paper, and sprinkled with oil of banafsha and then applied on the forehead of that person as it will completely cure both the fever and the headache.   The effects of eating Behi (quince), as stated by Hazrat Ali (a.s.), are the following: a)      Strengthens weak heart b)      Causes increase in weight c)      Cleans the stomach d)      Increases reason e)      Makes a man courageous   According to Imam Ja'far-e-Sadiq (a.s.), eating Behi (quince) improves complexion and causes beautiful children. When a person complained to Imam Reza (a.s.) of having few children, he (a.s.) asked him to eat egg with onion.
