"Every infallible has in some way called out, "is there anyone to help us?" whether it was through sitting down or standing up. It’s a timeless question that has been and is repeated by every infallible and a call for us to prepare ourselves for the Awaited One. But it was only when the ears and eyes of the ummah were closed that Imam Hussain had to voice this call and sacrifice his life so to wake us up. This flag that Al-Abbas held calls us and just like Jaffar e Tayyar, his arms were cut off holding this flag. The Prophet said that in exchange for the arms that Jaffar e Tayyar lost, he will receive wings in Heaven. So let the loose feathers of the wings of the ansar who lost their arms defending the sons of Muhammad be collected, preserved, tended to... until we have an army of wings stronger than THAT Door whose remembrance eternally feeds the fire in our chests. We must prepare ourselves quickly because only then will our master reappear. So when the voice calls out again, "is there anyone to help us?" we will, God willing, be able to Spread. Our. Wings."
