  1. As salam alaykum, hope you're all well. I have a presentation on a historical person in history class, and I chose Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) in hope of learning more about him, and I want to present about his life as genuine and proper as possible, since it's in front of mostly people that have never heard of him or just heard misconceptions. I unfortunately can't say I know much about the Imams and their lives, so I was wondering if someone could help me. Basically I have to choose an issue around his life, and try to answer that through the presentation, I'm thinking of going with why did he fight at Karbala. I don't want to give any false information, therefore I was wondering if someone could help me a bit with his life, such as his birth (where he was born, when), death, where he lived, education, work etc, basically the beginning of his life. What he has done that made him so famous today (I can't just say he is a Shia Imam, but also how he is relevant for non Muslim history as well in general). Theories on him and why he did what he did, his thoughts, and view on it all. I also have to talk about the how community and society around him was at the time, how people were treated, difference he made and other important things in his life. I would appreciate it a lot if someone could help me with this, I personally have just started getting closer to God, and my religion therefore I don't really know that much besides the basic, and I don't have anyone to ask. It would mean a lot if someone personally told me, or gave me links to sites that have answers, please don't provide information if you don't have the source. Thank you so much to anyone that helps.
  2. Assalam o alikum Everyone. Could you guys please help me understand this quote by Imam Hussain a.s?
  3. Salaam, Within 50 years of the Prophet's (saw) demise, his grandson gets brutally killed in Karbala along with his family and friends. The Prophet's (saw) progeny is made captive, dragged across the Ummah's domain and imprisoned. One would think that every single Muslim would ask this question - what happened? Instead, all we get are fingers pointed at us about how not to remember the Progeny of the Prophet (saw). Based on the Sunni propensity for violence over cartoons and movies, is it going too far to say that my sunni brothers would have held protests,cried foul and screamed for justice if Yazeed's forces just drew cartoons of the Progeny of the Prophet (saw)? At the very least, my sunnis brothers would have asked, "What happened?"
  4. The simple question that comes in mind of a common person is why the companions of the prophet saww (famous in sunnis) or their sons/ tabiyeen did neither participate in the battle of Kerbela along with Imam Hussain AS against yazeed (LA) nor they were martyred? What kind of support these companions (famous in sunnis) or their sons provide to Imam Hussain AS against yazeed and his army? The discussion should be conducted in an academic manner free of insults please.
  5. Salam Alaykum brothers and sisters in Islam and equals in humanity. This is a poem I wrote and recorded this poem for this year's Arbaeen period. May Allah shower you all with blessings infinitely. Feedback and comments are appreciated.
  6. Movie on Qafila e Karbala the Caravan of Pride Full movie(Urdu with Eng sub): https://youtu.be/4_tLhsJMh-A The saviour of mankind|BISKIT: https://youtu.be/PrH4ojZuItg
  7. Imam Hussain (AS) who did not accept the tyranny of Yazid and his immoral manners, was invited by the people of Kufa [ a city in ancient Iraq]. They asked him to help them and declared their opposition to Yazid's unlawful ruling. But, they did not keep their promises and finally left Imam Hussain (AS)'s representative alone to be martyred by Kufa forces. http://salamislam.com/content/invitation-infidels
  8. Assalaamualeykum, I was going through the quotes of all the great leaders who had praise the goal and aim of Imam Hussain (as), then I stumble upon the quote of Mahatma (Great Soul) Gandhi, this made me eager to dig more about the authenticity of his quote. I was searching for his saying on Imam Hussain from any book or letter source, unfortunately all that was available online was mere a quote not a reference was mentioned, this made me more curious to find out whether all his saying are legit or are they all forged. Then I happened to find the website www.gandhiheritageportal.org, which have authentic letters of Mahatma Gandhi in a Book form, which is named as 'The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi' and it is in 100 Volumes. It is on their website which says, "A one-time authentic documentation of Gandhiji’s available writings was carried out meticulously, and conscientiously under the CWMG project of the Government of India in 1956." And after going through this book, I have collected some authentic sayings of Mahatma Gandhi regarding Imam Hussain (as). And I was amazed how well this Hindu leader adopts his life by following the footsteps of Imam Hussain (as). Saying #1: Imam Hasan and Hussein refused to acknowledge the authority of Yazid, for it would have been wrong to do so. For this reason, that is, in order to preserve their honour, they became martyrs. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 7, Letter #89, Pg 122-123. Scan Page: Pg 122: http://oi63.tinypic.com/2lldci8.jpg Pg 123: http://oi64.tinypic.com/9kr18z.jpg Saying #2: Mr. Shahji Saheb, after referring to what Hazrat Imam Hussein had suffered, said that what had happened to Ram Sundar Pundit might also happen to a Muslim priest. Unable to bear this thought, he had forced himself to be prepared to follow the Pundit to gaol. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 7, Pg 418. Scan Page: Pg 418: http://oi65.tinypic.com/2mw8qxw.jpg Saying #3: Imam Hassan and Hussain were merely two boys. They felt that an injustice had been done to them. When called upon to surrender, they refused. They knew at the time that this would mean death for them. If, however, they were to submit to injustice, they woud disgrace their manhood and betray their religion. In these circumstances, they yielded to the embrace of death. The heads of these fine young men rolled on the battlefield. In my view, Islam did not attain its greatness by the power of the sword but entirely through the self-immolation of its fakirs (saints). Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 13, Letter #395, Pg 518. Scan Page: Pg 518: http://oi65.tinypic.com/2mfllol.jpg Saying #4: Muslim students have before them the example of Imam Hasan and Husain. Islam has not been kept alive by the sword, but by the many great fakirs (saints) with a high sense of honour whom it has produced. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 19, Letter #36, Pg 48-49. Scan Page: Pg 48: http://oi67.tinypic.com/11tolz4.jpg Pg 49: http://oi63.tinypic.com/2hrl5zo.jpg Saying #5: The marks of a Kshatriya spirit are not cruelty and hard-heartedness; it consists, rather, in forbearance, readiness to forgive, compassion, nobility, apalayanam (Not running away from battle in fear) and the strength to stand unshaken and fearless even under a shower of bullets. The true Kshatriya does not kill but receives blows on himself. Imam Hussen and Hassan were Kshatriyas. Their oppressor was a tyrant. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 20, Letter #60, Pg 52. Scan Page: Pg 52: http://oi64.tinypic.com/2qiprmb.jpg Note: Kshatriya (from Sanskrit kśatra, "rule, authority") is one of the four varna (social orders) of the Hindu society. The Sanskrit term kśatriya is used in the context of Vedic society wherein members organised themselves into four classes: kshatriya, brahmin, vaishya and shudra. Traditionally, the kshatriya constituted the ruling and military elite. Their role was to protect society by fighting in wartime and governing in peacetime. Saying #6: In this connection, it would be well to ponder over the lives and examples of Harishchandra, Prahlad, Ramachandra, Imam Hasan and Imam Husain, the Christian saints, etc. How beautitful it would be if all of us, young and old, men and women, meditated, till next week, on these thoughts at all hours of the day, whetther working, eating, drinking or playing, and were rewarded with innocent sleep?

  9. The simple question that comes in mind of a common person is why the sons of the companions of the prophet saww (famous in sunnis) or tabiyeen did neither participate in the battle of Kerbela along with Imam Hussain AS against yazeed (LA) nor they were martyred? What kind of support these companions (famous in sunnis) or their sons provide to Imam Hussain AS against yazeed and his army?

  10. It is the ardent desire of every Shia to visit the Holy shrines of their immaculate Imam (a.s.). Most of us had that opportunity before and will visit them again, Insha Allah while there are many who will go to them soon. Making your presence in front of them requires more of a sincerity, love and passion alongwith recognition of their rights. Arbae'en is near and it is the best opportunity for each one of us to call out labbaik. Those yearning for the Ziyarat of Ab'a Abdillah should take a step ahead and start with preparations, as in: Do I have my passport ready? Is it nearing expiry? Procedure for obtaining visa (Tour operator will take care if you are going with Qafela) Applying for leaves in office in advance. What about my finances? If it is less, how can I arrange extra amount? Which tour operators should I go with? Any other obstacles/hurdles, etc. Please note this thread is not for debating on any particular aspect or method or rewards of Ziyarat but a means to get ourselves prepared for it. The rewards and merits of Ziyarat of Imam Hussain (a.s.) is much more than can be outlined here. I'll mention but a few traditions to get an overview of it's great virtue, in the next post. You are welcome to present ahadith and how are you going to take part in Arbae'en this year.
  11. Can you please help with these doubts that I've met recently and since then i feel like all of the waqia e karbala is twisted . 1. Was imam hussain going to koofa to build an army if yes then it was a good strategy by opponents to kill them when they were alone. 2. Why the opponents didn't kill imam sajjad in karbala as without him there would've been no shias and eventually everybody would've obeyed yazid. 3. Imam hussain was forced to leave madina but he left a daughter there to whom no harm was made. Please help me clear my concepts
  12. 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...
  13. Please share all movies you know or can find about the story of Imam Al Hussain A.S. and if possible mention wich one you think is the best and why If you know or can find forums on this website about this subject it would be great May Allah SWT grant us success

  20. Ashura is the 10th day of Muharram and a reminder of one of the most tragic event in the history of Islam. Hussain b. Ali being the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his family) along with his 72 close companions were mercilessly massacred by so called Muslims in the desert of Karbala. Yazid b. Muawiyah was illegally appointed a Muslim caliph by his father. After his death, Yazid was taking allegiance from the tribal influential leaders. He sought allegiance of Husayn b. Ali but he refused to give allegiance because Yazid did lack the minimum qualities required for an ordinary Muslim. Anyhow, Yazid being supported by Umayyad dynasty and the rival tribes of Bani Hashem, ordered his governor to either take allegiance from Imam Hussain or make them give in. Since, Imam Hussain was brought up by Lady Fatima, the dearest daughter of the Prophet of Islam, and Ali b. Abi Talib, the brother and the legitimate immediate successor to the Prophet, did not yield to such an arrogant pressure. Anyhow, Imam Hussain along with his most sincere friends were martyred by Yazid's forces and their family members were taken as captives. Since 61A.H, the Shiite Imams used to wear black attires in Muharram and recall the sad memories of their grandfather. Afterwards, the Shiites, following their Imams' footsteps have always been serious in keeping the causes and names of Imam Hussain (a.s), his sister Bibi Zainab (s) and other personalities alive. The most important cause Imam Hussain fought for was to revive his grandfather's -the prophet Muhammad- religion and those invaluable values and merits he had struggled during his 23 years of prophetic mission. Now, the Muslims in general and millions of Shia in particular around the globe come to the streets, bearing the flags beautified with the slogans and name of Imam Hussain (a.s) and his relatives, to show their anger and grief to Yazid and the likes on the one hand and display their sincere solidarity with the grandson of the prophet Muhammad and his companions on the other. As a result, it will help themselves to remain vigilant and defiant against the prevailing oppression and injustice. The event of Ashura is an anti-oppression rally in a global size and scale to say a big 'NO' to injustice and to a coercive political persecution even if it is perpetrated by a so called Muslim caliph. His oppression and heinous acts should never be tolerated and imposed on ordinary Muslims' shoulders. Thus, the Shiites attempt to commemorate the 10th of Muharram annually and remind themselves of the true belief system and life-giving Islamic teachings. Thanks May God Bless Us All
