  8. Mahatma Gandhi: My faith is that the progress of Islam does not depend on the use of sword by its believers, but the result of the supreme sacrifice of Husain, the great saint Dr. Rajendra Prasad: The sacrifice of Imam Husain is not limited to one country, or nation, but it is the hereditary state of the brotherhood of all mankind Dr. Radha Krishnan: Though Imam Husain gave his life almost 1300 years ago, but his indestructible soul rules the hearts of people even today. Swami Shankaracharya: It is Husain`s sacrifice that that has kept Islam alive or else in this world there would be no one left to take Islam`s name. Rabindranath Tagore: In order to keep alive justice and truth, instead of an army or weapons, success can be achieved by sacrificing lives, exactly what Imam Husain did. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru: Imam Husain`s sacrifice is for all groups and communities, an example of the path of righteousness. Edward Gibbon: (1737-1794) considered the greatest British historian of his time "In a distant age and climate the tragic scene of the death of Hosein will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader." [The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, London, 1911, volume 5 , pp. 391-2] Robert Durey Osborn: 1835-1889) Major of the Bengal Staff Corps. "Hosain had a child named Asghar, only six months old. He had accompanied his father in this terrible march. Touched by its cries, he took the infant in his arms and wept. At that instant, a shaft from the hostile ranks pierced the child`s throat, and it expired in his father`s arms. Hosain placed the little corpse upon the ground. `We come from God, and we return to Him!` he cried; `O Lord, give me strength to bear these misfortunes! ` . Faint with thirst, and exhausted with wounds, he fought with desperate courage, slaying several of his antagonists. At last he was cut down from behind; at the same instance a lance was thrust through his back and bore him to the ground; as the dealer of this last blow withdrew his weapon, the son of Ali rolled over a corpse. The head was severed from the trunk; the trunk was trampled under the hoofs of the victors` horses; and the next morning the women and a surviving infant son were carried away to Kufa. The bodies of Hosain and his followers were left unburied on the spot where they fell. For three days they remained exposed to the sun and the night dews, the vultures and the prowling animals of the waste; but then the inhabitants of a neighbouring village, struck with horror that the body of a grandson of the Prophet should be thus shamefully abandoned, dared the anger of Obaidallah, and interred the body of the martyr and those of his heroic friends." [islam Under the Arabs, Delaware, 1976, pp. 126-7] Sir William Muir: (1819-1905) Scottish scholar and statesman. Held the post of Foreign Secretary to the Indian government as well as Lieutenant Governor of the Northwestern Provinces. "The tragedy of Karbala decided not only the fate of the caliphate, but of the Mohammedan kingdoms long after the Caliphate had waned and disappeared. " [Annals of the Early Caliphate, London, 1883, pp. 441-2] Peter J. Chelkowski: Professor of Middle Eastern Studies, New York University "Hussein accepted and set out from Mecca with his family and an entourage of about seventy followers. But on the plain of Kerbela they were caught in an ambush set by the caliph, Yazid. Though defeat was certain, Hussein refused to pay homage to him. Surrounded by a great enemy force, Hussein and his company existed without water for ten days in the burning desert of Kerbela. Finally Hussein, the adults and some male children of his family and his companions were cut to bits by the arrows and swords of Yazid`s army; his women and remaining children were taken as captives to Yazid in Damascus. The renowned historian Abu Reyhan al-Biruni states; " then fire was set to their camp and the bodies were trampled by the hoofs of the horses; nobody in the history of the human kind has seen such atrocities." [Ta`ziyeh: Ritual and Drama in Iran, New York, 1979, p. 2] Simon Ockley: (1678-1720) Professor of Arabic at the University of Cambridge "Then Hosein mounted his horse, and took the Koran and laid it before him, and, coming up to the people, invited them to the performances of their duty: adding, `O God, thou art my confidence in every trouble, and my hope in all adversity!`. He next reminded them of his excellency, the nobility of his birth, the greatness of his power, and his high descent, and said, `Consider with yourselves whether or not such a man as I am is not better than you; I who am the son of your prophet`s daughter, besides whom there is no other upon the face of the earth. Ali was my father; Jaafar and Hamza, the chief of the martyrs, were both my uncles; and the apostle of God, upon whom be peace, said both of me and my brother, that we were the chief of the youth of paradise. If you will believe me, what I say is true, for by God, I never told a lie in earnest since I had my understanding; for God hates a lie. If you do not believe me, ask the companions of the apostle of God [here he named them], and they will tell you the same. Let me go back to what I have.` They asked, `What hindered him from being ruled by the rest of his relations.` He answered, `God forbid that I should set my hand to the resignation of my right after a slavish manner. I have recourse to God from every tyrant that doth not believe in the day of account." [The History of the Saracens, London, 1894, pp. 404-5] Edward G. Brown: Sir Thomas Adams Professor of Arabic and oriental studies at the University of Cambridge ". a reminder of the blood-stained field of Kerbela, where the grandson of the Apostle of God fell at length, tortured by thirst and surrounded by the bodies of his murdered kinsmen, has been at anytime since then sufficient to evoke, even in the most lukewarm and heedless, the deepest emotions, the most frantic grief, and an exaltation of spirit before which pain, danger and death shrink to unconsidered trifles." [A Literary History of Persia, London, 1919, p. 227] I gnaz Goldziher: (1850-1921) Famous Hungarian orientalist scholar "Ever since the black day of Karbala, the history of this family has been a continuous series of sufferings and persecutions. These are narrated in poetry and prose, in a richly cultivated literature of martyrologies - a Shi`i specialty - and form the theme of Shi`i gatherings in the first third of the month of Muharram, whose tenth day (`ashura) is kept as the anniversary of the tragedy at Karbala. Scenes of that tragedy are also presented on this day of commemoration in dramatic form (ta`ziya). `Our feast days are our assemblies of mourning.` So concludes a poem by a prince of Shi`i disposition recalling the many mihan of the Prophet`s family. Weeping and lamentation over the evils and persecutions suffered by the `Alid family, and mourning for its martyrs: these are things from which loyal supporters of the cause cannot cease. `More touching than the tears of the Shi`is` has even become an Arabic proverb." [introduction to Islamic Theology and Law, Princeton, 1981, p. 179]

  13. Salam, I would like to point out that many people on ShiaChat have been disrespecting our beloved sheikh yasser al habib,where is your manners? where is you respect? and yous no who yous are im sure yous do.Its about time we all start showing respect to this man because what he is doing takes courage and great will.I bet there is no one here who has the courage like Sheikh yasser does,Please start showing our Sheikh the respect he deserves.Afterall he is one of us and he is our leader in the future inshallah,and ShiaChat should also start monitoring these people who are insulting sheikh yasser habib,look at my posts it wont be hard to find who they are.Most of yous dislike him because he says things yous dont have the courage to hear or say,and that truly hurts yous, which is a shame because as shias we have to stand up for the truth.
  14. But the sheikh is not making up tales so you cant use this verse against him,and also please have some manners thanks.
