  1. SalamAlaykum brothers and sister May Allah accept our condolences for the Family of Muhammad pbuh Specially the Family of Imam Hussain (a.s) I was reading a Book called The Event of Taff, The Earliest Historical Account of the Tragedy of Karbala by Abu Mikhnaf Apparently this is the earliest account of the Event of Karbala. Now here is the catch, there are two books with the same title (Maqtal Al Hussain) which are attributed to Abu Mikhnaf. The earliest one being more authentic than the later one. The later one has appeared out of nowhere and has additions in the event of Karbala and is rejected by our Scholars. In the book I was reading this under the Subtitle 'The Great Errors of this Maqtal' talking about the later version of the Maqtal of Abu Mikhnaf and it read this following from point 11 11. Again he is the only one to have repeated three times the report of the night and the day of ‘Ashura’. He mentions in the first the speech of al-Husayn (as) and the [martyrdom] of his brother, ‘Abbas (as)! He is alone in saying that: “… [‘Abbas] then held the sword with his mouth.” He then says: “[Al-Husayn] came to him and carried him on the back of his horse and took him to the tents. He put [his body] there and bitterly wept over him such that everyone present with him began weeping.” --------------- Now in the earliest version of the same Maqtal it mentions this on page 147. Pdf version from Al-islam.org ......When [the foot soldiers from among the] companions of Nafi’ drew near him, he [told them]: “Fill your waterskins!” So they forced their way and filled their waterskins. [Seeing this] ‘Amru bin al-Hajjaj and his companions rushed towards them, but ‘Abbas bin ‘Ali and Nafi’ bin Hilal attacked them and stopped them [from reaching the foot soldiers]. Then both of them went to the foot soldiers and told them: “[You] move [ahead]” while they were protecting them. [In the meanwhile,] ‘Amru bin al-Hajjaj and his army came back and chased them for a while. The companions of al-Husayn (as) managed to return to him with the waterskins. According to Abu Mikhnaf Abbas Ibn Ali (a.s) did not die losing his arms when trying to get water from the river of Furat but actually during battle Under the subheading 'The Martyrdom of ‘Abbas bin ‘Ali (as) and His Brothers' ‘Abbas bin ‘Ali (as) then said to his brothers on his mother’s side -‘Abdullah, Ja’far and ‘Uthman: “O sons of my mother! Go forward [and fight] so that I may mourn over you; for you have no children [to grieve over you]! They did so [and went out and fought a severe battle until] they were killed. [May Allah have mercy on them].11,12 My question would be, is the account where Abbas Ibn Ali (a.s) gets his arms cut off by the enemy authentic? And if yes, what is the source since the later version mentions this event but the first version which is the more authentic one. I would really appreciate your insight into this

    The martydom of Hazrat Abbas (as)

    Salaam alaikum all, I am sure you all aware of the circumstances surrounding how Hazrat Abbas (as) was martyred fetching water for Imam Hussain (as) and the children. I came across some opposition from Sunni muslims (not directly towards me) questioning the way some of the companions of Imam Hussain (as) were martyred. Particularly with the way Abbas (as) was martyred. The claim is that circumstances surrounding his (as) martyrdom are deliberately exaggerated to make people shed tears. They don't question that he was killed trying to get water but the way in which things played out are exaggerated to make people cry and weep. I decided to do some research and find authentic sources describing the martyrdom of Abbas (as). I looked on al-islam.org and found this: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/forum/26-muharram-14392017/ The sources cited for the martyrdom of Abbas (as) is a source called 'Roudhatul Ahbab' Has anyone heard of this source? Is it authentic? Can anyone direct me to other reliable sources on this subject? Any help is much appreciated
  5. Iranian calligrapher donates rare Quran to Astan of Hazrat Abbas / Pics (AhlulBayt News Agency) - Iranian artist and calligrapher Seyed Ali Asghar Mousavian donated a rare copy of the Quran that he has calligraphed to the Astan (custodianship) of Hazrat Abbas (AS) holy shrine in Karbala, Iraq. The copy includes calligraphy of the Quran in three scripts of Thulth, Naskh and Reyhan. According to al-Kafeel website, he said a special natural ink has been used for writing the Quran copy, which weighs 3 kilograms. Mousavian added that he spent ten hours a day for two years to complete the artwork. Earlier this year, on the occasion of Imam Ali (AS) birthday, the Iranian artist donated another Quran copy written in gold to the Astan of Imam Ali (AS) in Najaf. It is now on display at the museum of the Astan. http://en.abna24.com/news/iran/iranian-calligrapher-donates-rare-quran-to-astan-of-hazrat-abbas_845213.html

    Hazrat Abu-Ul-Fazal Abbas A.s

    [Hazrat Abu-ul-Fazal Abbas (a.s) Asalamoalaka ya Gahzi Abbas a.s Name - Ali , Abbas Title - Abbas Kunyat - Abu-ul-Fazal Born - 4th of Shabaan 26th A.H. , at Medina Father's Name - Imam Ali Murtaza (a.s) Mother's Name - Ummul Baneen Died - At the age of 35 years, at Karbala , on Friday 10th Muharrum 61 A.H. Shaheed at the war of Karbala. Buried - at Karbala, Iraq. HAZRAT ABBAS (a.s) Hazrat Ali married Fatimah Binti Huzaam Ibne Khalid in 24 Hijrah. Fatimah gave birth to Hazrat Abbas on the 4th Shabaan, 26th Hijrah. In 27th Hijrah Ja'far was born and in 29th Hijrah Uthmaan was born. Abdullah was born in 32nd Hijrah. Because she had four sons Fatima Binti Huzaam was known as Ummul Baneen. Ummul Baneen, from the very first day she entered Hazrat Ali's house, treated the children of Bibi Fatimah with utmost respect. She brought up her own sons to look upon Imaam Hassan, Imaam Hussain, Bibi Zainab and Bibi Kulthoom, not as brothers and sisters but as masters and mistresses. Imaam Hussain was very attached to Hazrat Abbas. When Hazrat Abbas was born, Hazrat Ali asked Imaam Hussain to recite the adhaan and the iqamah in the ears of the child. When he was on the arms of Imaam Hussain, the infant smiled and raised his arms. There were tears in Imaam Hussain's eyes. Was it because he knew that the child was trying to say: "O Mawla I have come and will happily give these my arms and my life for you and Islam" ? In early childhood Hazrat Abbas would follow Imaam Hussain like a shadow. If Imaam Hussain looked thirsty, Abbas would rush to bring him water. If Imaam Hussain seemed hot, Abbas would fan him with the hem of his cloak. At the battle of Siffeen in the 34th Hijrah, Abbas was only eight years old. Imaam Hussain was fighting in the battle field. When Hazrat Abbas saw an enemy soldier approaching Imaam Hussain from behind, he took a sword and rushed into the battle field and killed the enemy, at the same time crying out in a loud voice, "How can any one dare attack my Mawla while I am alive." He continued to fight maintaining his position behind Imaam Hussain. Muawiya saw this and asked, "Who is that boy?" When he was told he was Abbas ibne Ali, he said, "By God! No one can fight like that at that age except a son of Ali!" Hazrat Abbas grew up to be a tall and handsome man. He was so tall, that when he sat on a horse his feet touched the ground. He was so handsome that he was known as Qamar-e-Bani Hashim, the Moon of the family of Hashim. Hazrat Abbas was also a valiant warrior. It was said that Muawiya did not dare invade Madina because of five men who were with Imaam Hussain and could, together with their Imaam, conquer a whole army. These were Muhammad Hanafia, a brother of Imaam Hussain, Hazrat Muslim ibne Aqeel, Abdullah Ibne Jaffer, Hazrat Abbas and Hazrat Ali ibnal Hussain, our fourth Imaam, Zainul 'Abideen. When Imaam Hussain decided to leave Madina in the month of Rajab 60 Hijrah, he did not encourage Muhammad Hanafia and Abdullah Ibne Jaffer to accompany him. He wanted to make sure that no one at the time or in the future would suggest that Hussain wanted to fight for the khilafah. Just before Imaam Hussain left Madina, Ummul Baneen summoned all her four sons and said to them, My sons you must remember that while I love you, Imaam Hussain is your Master. If Imaam or his sisters or his children get injured or hurt while you are still alive, I will never forgive you. There were tears in Hazrat Abbas's eyes as he promised his mother that he and his brothers would lay down their lives for Imaam Hussain and his children. The caravan reached Kerbala on 2nd Muharram. From the day the sad news of Hazrat Muslim's murder had reached the caravan of Imaam Hussain, Hazrat Abbas and his brothers increased their vigilance to protect Imaam and the others. Hazrat Abbas was very popular with the children of Imaam Hussain especially Sakina who was only four years old. Whenever the children wanted anything they would cry out "Ya Abbas!" or "Ya Ammahu!", and Abbas would go running. But from the seventh of Muharram Abbas was unable to respond to their cries for water. Then came the day of Ashura, after Zuhr prayers one by one the brave companions of Imaam Hussain fell in the battle field. At last only Imaam Hussain, Ali Akber and Hazrat Abbas were left. Imaam Zainul 'Abideen lay sick in his tent. Several times Hazrat Abbas asked Imaam Hussain for permission to go and fight. Each time Imaam Hussain would reply "Abbas, you are the captain of my army, you are my 'alamdaar - the standard bearer". Hazrat Abbas would never argue with Imaam Hussain. His three brothers were killed in the battle fought after Zuhr. Imaam Hussain could see the anger in Hazrat Abbas's eyes, especially when Hazrat Qasim's body was trampled upon by the enemy. Imaam Hussain knew that if he let Abbas go and fight, there would be a massacre in the enemy rank. Imaam Hussain's object was to re-awaken Islam and not to score a victory on the battle field. Just then Bibi Sakina came out holding a dried up mask. She walked up to Hazrat Abbas and said "AL ATASH, YA AMMAHU! I am thirsty O my uncle Abbas !" Abbas went to Imaam Hussain and requested for permission to go and get water for Sakina. Imaam Hussain gave his permission. Abbas put Sakina's mashk on the 'alam, mounted his horse and rode up to Imaam Hussain. He said "I have come to say goodbye". Imaam Hussain said "My brother, come and embrace me". Hazrat Abbas dismounted his horse. There were tears in Imaam's eyes. As Hazrat Abbas prepared to mount his horse, Imaam Hussain said, "My brother, I want a gift from you. I want your sword". Hazrat Abbas, without uttering a word, gave Imaam Hussain his sword and rode into the battlefield, armed only with a spear and holding the 'alam. There were 30,000 enemy soldiers in the battlefield. They had all heard of the valour of Hazrat Abbas. A cry arose, "Abbas is coming!" Yazeed's soldiers started hiding behind one another. A few brave ones dared go near Hazrat Abbas but were soon put to death by the spear or by a kick. Hazrat Abbas reached the river Furaat. He filled the mashk with water. He himself was very thirsty. He took the water in his palms, looked at it and threw it away saying, "O water of Furaat, my lips can welcome you only after Sakina has quenched her thirst !?" He placed the mashk on his 'alam and started to ride back. Umar Sa'ad cried out, "Do not let that water reach Hussain's camp, otherwise we shall all be doomed!" A soldier climbed a tree and as Abbas was riding past the tree he struck his sword on the right shoulder The spear and the arm fell on to the ground. Just then someone crept behind Hazrat Abbas and struck him on the left shoulder. The 'alam fell. Hazrat Abbas gripped the mashk with his teeth. His one object was to get the water to Sakina. Fighting with his feet he urged the horse to get him to Imaam's camp as quickly as possible. Alas ! an arrow was shot. It went flying across the desert and hit the mashk. The water began to pour out and with the water all the hopes of Hazrat Abbas poured on to the sands of Kerbala to be buried forever in the thirsty desert. Abbas now did not want to go back and face Sakina. With his feet, he signalled the horse to turn back. The enemy surrounded him from all sides. Abbas fell from the horse!! As he fell, he cried out "My salaams to you Ya Mawla!" Imaam Hussain seemed to lose all his strength when he heard the voice of his dear brother Abbas. When Hazrat Abbas left to go to fetch water, Imaam stood at the gate of the camp watching the 'alam. Sakina was standing next to Imaam Hussain, also with her eyes fixed on the 'alam. When Abbas reached the river bank and bent down to fill the mashk, the 'alam disappeared from sight. Sakina was frightened and looked at her father. Imaam said, 'Sakina, your uncle Abbas is at the river bank'. Sakina smiled and said, 'Alhamdulillah !' and called out all the children to welcome Abbas. When Hazrat Abbas lost both arms, the 'alam fell onto the ground. Sakina could see it no longer! She looked at Imaam Hussain, but he turned his face away. Sakina began to tremble with fear and her eyes filled with tears. She raised her hands and prayed, 'Ya Allah! Do not let them kill my uncle Abbas! I will never ask for water again!' and ran inside to her mother. Imaam Hussain reached where Hazrat Abbas was lying. It was a tragic sight. Hazrat Abbas was lying on the ground. Both arms had been severed! There was an arrow in the right eye and blood blocked the left eye. As soon as Hazrat Abbas sensed the presence of Imaam Hussain he said "Mawla, why did you take the trouble to come over? Please go back and look after Sakina." Imaam Hussain said, "My dear brother, all your life you have served me and my children. Is there anything I can do for you at this last moment of you life ?" Hazrat Abbas replied, "Aqaa, please, clean the blood from my eye so that I can see your beloved face before I die!" Imaam cleaned the blood. Abbas fixed his gaze on Imaam. Then he said, "Mawla please do not carry my body to the camp. I do not wish Sakina to see me in this state!" Imaam Hussain took Hazrat Abbas in his arms, and kissed his forehead. Just then our Mawla, our Mushkil Kushaa, Abbas ibne Ali breathed his last. Imaam Hussain placed Sakina's mashk on the 'alam and carried the 'alam to the camp. He went to Bibi Zainab's tent. Imaam Hussain could not say a word. He gave the 'alam to Bibi Zainab and sat down on the floor! The brother sister performed aza-e-Abbas. Abbas b. Ali (A.S.)

    Iraqi Symbolisms

    Salaams Ya Ali Madad I was fortunate enough to spend Ashura in the Holy Land of Kerbala this year, it was my first visit to Kerbala and being from Pakistani descent, there were many things I saw of the majority of the people in Kerbala (Iraqi's) which I had not seen before. One such thing is on the days leading up to Ashura, the Iraqi julooses would have what we in Pakistan refer to as a taboot or shabih, generally it was quite big and had lights lighting it up, sometimes it was shaped like a large boat and at other times it was smaller. I just wanted to ask if anyone knew what the symbolism behind these are and more so I saw that these shabihs would be spun at points of the juloos, especially when entering the haram in front of the zari. As in the Pakistani culture there are many things we do which other cultures would see as unordinary but we know the symbolisms and reasons behind such actions, in the same way I just wanted to ask what the symbolisms behind the action of these shabihs are. Thank you

    The Standard-bearer

    Dea reader.. this article may contain some mistakes, please help me to change them before its being published, many thanks. The standard-bearer It is impossible to count any describe any virtue of our master Abul-Fathel Al-Abbas AS. We should bow front of him for his high standards and position. It is fair enough to relay on the statues of our Imam al-Sadiq AS on his behalf. Imam Ja'far as Sadiq (as) said, “Our uncle Abbas b. Ali AS had sharp foresight and firm faith. He fought alongside Husain AS and gave ample evidence of his bravery and courage until he was martyred.” The chief of the vicegerents (as) kissing his hands Abbas AS is a unique phenomenon, which deserves All human to bow to him AS, and being grateful for his attitudes, and special character. the commander of the faithful used to look after him in special way , and was narrating about his futuristic heroic actions. Once, entered on Imam Ali AS and saw him seated his baby al-Abbas on his knees, took out the baby’s hand of his shirt, kissed them, and wept. Watching this situation, the mother was astonished; she said to him,” O commander of the faithful, I noticed that you are kissing his hands warmly!” he said,” His hands will be cut in Karbala”. She wept heavily. After that, the Imam told her ,” He will be killed for the love of his brother al-Hussain” and this relieved her. Abbas AS receiving the trust the following was stated in a book titled with “Alnas Aljali fe mawled Al’Abas bin Ali”: When Zainab AS saw that her father gathered his sons, when he was dying, and started to recommend them and recommend upon them, she came to her father. She said ,” O father, I want you to choose for me one of my brother to entrust me and stay with me” he AS said,” Daghter!, Here are your brothers. Choose whoever you want, here is Al-Hassan, and here is Al-Hussain!” She said,” Al-Hassan, and Al-Hussain are my Imams and masters, and I am serving them faithfully. But I want I want one of my brothers who could serve me, incase I might need to travel, so he could serve me and entrust me in this travel” he AS said,” choose whoever you want!” Zainab AS looked into her brothers, and she selected the Moon of the Clan, Abu Alfadel Al-Abbas AS. Zainab AS said,” O father, I want this brother” and pointed at Al-Abbas. The commander of the faithful AS said,” Son, come closer!” when he became next to him, he AS took the hand of Zainab AS and putted her on the hand of Al-Abbas, and said,” Son, this is my trust, and I entrust you with it” Al-Abbas AS while his tears falling on his face,” O father, I will make you proud, I will do my best to protect her and looking after her” Then commander of the faithful AS with tearful eyes, started to look at Abbas and Zainab AS. Sayed Almuqarram highlights Sayed Almuqarram recognized this information from Ziyarat Abbas AS, ” And Allah’s curse be on the group who violated your sanctities, and infringed the sanctity of Islam by killing you. Almuqarram stated,” the sanctity of Islam would not be harmed by killing a brave man, or by killing a noble man, but the sanctities of Islam would be violated by killing infallible human, or someone whose near that position, also Al-Abbas AS was great in knowledge” The water carrier seeking permission When Imam Hussain AS was left with no one but his brother Abbas AS, he came to Imam Hussain AS and said, “Do you permit me?” Imam wept bitterly and said, “O dear brother! You are my standard-bearer, then if you go away my army will get scattered”. Abbas replied, “My heart is getting narrow and I am satiated from life. And I desire to avenge the blood of my brothers from these hypocrites”. Imam Hussain AS said, “Then bring water for these children”. The narrator stated,” then Al-Abbas AS went to people, lectured them, and warned them of the anger of The Mighty SWT, but it did not prove fruitful. He shouted loudly,”O umar b. Sa’d, this is Hussain the son of Fatima, the daughter of Messenger of Allah. You Have killed his companions, and his householders. Those are his women and kids, they are thirsty, so give them water, they are melting of thirst” His words touched the hearts of the army, that some of them cried, but Shimr shouted loudly,” o son of abu Torab, if there was water All around earth, and it was controlled by us, we would not give you a drop!” Then he returned back to the Imam and informed him. He heard the children wailing “O thirst”, he mounted his horse, and took the flag and water-skin, then went towards the Euphrates. Four thousand men, who were guarding the Euphrates, surrounded him from all sides and shot arrows at him. He attacked them and killed many men until he had ripped them, then he entered the river. He centered the flag on earth, and went to water. When he felt the cold of water while thirstiness was killing him slowly He tried to drink water, when suddenly he remembered the thirst of Imam and his Household. He then threw away the water and said,” By Allah, I will not drink water while my brother Hussain AS is thirsty” then he recited, “O my soul! My wish is that you live not after Hussain! Will you have a drink of cold water, while there stands Hussain, thirsty, near the tents, And about to drink the cup of death!? Such is not the way of my faith, Nor that of one who abides in conviction and truth!” He felled the water-skin on his shoulder, and came out the river, then a group of enemies front of him. Ibn Sa’d shouted,” Do not let him proceed”. When he AS saw that, he carried his sword and attacked them while reciting, “I do not fear death even when it calls out to me, or until I do not fight the tested fighters and fall upon the ground, my life is ransom upon the one who is the life of Mustafa, verily I am Abbas the one who fetches water, while I do not fear on the day of battle”. They threw arrows from all the sides at him until his shield became like a hedgehog because the shape which thousands of arrows made on his shield. Zaid bin Alwarqa was ambushed behind a palm tree, and Hakim b. Altufail helped him, and he hit him on his right hand and amputated it. He AS took the sword with his left and recited, “By Allah! Although you have severed my right hand, I shall keep defending my Religion as also my positively Truthful Imam, who is the son of the Chaste and Trustworthy Prophet”. He fought and fought, until he became weaker, and bleeding has exhausted him. Hakim b. Altufail ambushed him then attacked him with sword and amputated his left, then Al-Abbas AS recited, “O self do not fear the infidels, may you receive the glad tidings of the Mercy of the Omnipotent, along with the Prophet the Master of the empowered, they have severed my left hand with injustice, O Lord burn them with the fire (of hell)”. The sword has fallen as the hand, so he AS gripped the water-skin with his teeth. He did not want anything at that moment but to bring water the camp. They blocked his way, and gathered around him, then arrows started to hit him from all directions like rain. His chest was hit by an arrow, another hit his right eyes and disabled it, and the blood were curd on his left eye. Later, a man from Bani Tamim (clan) came and hit him by iron mace on his head, then he fall on earth, and cried loud,” Peace be upon you Abu Abdullah, help me my brother!” Imam Hussain reached where Abbas was lying. It was a tragic sight. Abbas was lying on the ground. Both arms had been severed! There was an arrow in the right eye and blood blocked the left eye. The flag was cut to pieces next to him, and the water-skin was flat. On that, Imam Hussain AS said, “Now my back has bent. Now my maneuver has lessened. Now my enemies has mocked me”.
  20. (bismillah) In The Name of Allah (SWT) , The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. (salam) I hope, and pray, that you are all in the best of health and, more importantly, imaan (faith). So, Christianlady had asked me to recommend a article about Imam Hussein (as) and I was wondering if one of you could, please, please recommend a written Maqtal (although a video would also be fine) of Imam Hussein, which is short and emphasises on the emotional aspect of the tragedy of Karbala? I thank you all in advance. May Allah (SWT) bless us all, our families and loved ones, guide us all to The Straight Path with His Perfect Guidance and may He, The Forgiver of Sins and The Oft-Forgiving, forgive all our sins, for, verily, there is neither any refuge nor any respite for the sinners except in Allah (SWT) .
