  1. Bismillah I know this is a bit late but I’d like to humbly present to you all this small poem in honour and celebration of the birth anniversary of the daughter of Imam Ali and Lady Fatima, Lady Zainab e Kubra written by my humble self. Today the blessings of the heavens opened as a moon into the house of Ali, She descends in her glory and the moon hides in her awe of her beauty, Even the sun dare not gaze upon her to protect her modesty, Stars rotate around her magnanimity. Zainab is her name, A name that can move mountains, For which other woman can be known as a princess in the heavens, This name shook each place that she is summoned. And courage applauds her valour, Many women can be brave but only one can become Islam’s flagbearer, Protecting others without the need for armour, One strike from her tongue can make everyone cower, The sister of Abbas is also a soldier. No one on this Earth would see what you see, And still compliment the Lord on His beauty, I’m inspired by your mention, Oh holy lady, My tongue calls to you in both celebrations and calamities, Each letter in your name serves as in your praise poetry, This is your station oh Zainab daughter of Ali. I say to my sisters and mothers, Protect this hijab, For this is her banner, Wear it with every being of your fibre, Let this crown make you hold your head up higher This is your armour, It sends an attack to your oppresse Look at her shrine in Syria, Standing tall with pride and honour, It sends a message to those wishing for terror, Where you wanted to defame her, Look at who you are and then look at Sani e Zahra, You are forgotten like the names of your ancestor and like her father, She is the victor, The warrior in the face of horror, She is the champion and the winner. She taught me patience when the world crumbles around you, Never bow down to that which is not true, Have patience that a light at the end of this dark tunnel will see you through, She is my strength and through her love my heart grew, No longer did my eyes shed tears when her story I knew, For no matter what we see in this dunya, Is nothing compared to the strength held by the daughter of Fatima. Oh my Lady forgive me if my pen was unable to show the world your beauty, But in this failure is my victory for who can truly describe even an ounce of your personality, Indebted to you is humanity, Your service to God is your legacy. Oh Lady Zainab my mistress, Grant me this prayer that escapes my lips as a whisper, Let me visit your shrine in Syria, Sit beside your grave and recite in your honour, And see the flag of your brother fluttering in the breeze as your protector
  2. Today it is 11th of Muharram. After having mourned for Hussain (as) and his loyal companions who have been martyred in the greatest of battles, we have surely been taught something. For around 60 generations we have kept Imam alive. He may not be physically here, but his ideology is day by day being more sound. The more oppressed and corruptive this earth gets, the more we remember Hussain's struggle. We remember the feel Hussain must have had once he realized how the muslims went against him. The feeling of betrayal for worldly pleasures. They swapped gold dimes with a diamond pearl. A person whose face was so pure, it was as if the moon was walking on earth. A person that submitted completely to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى even though he saw how his family and friends were being martyred. A person who wanted to join the martyrs of Karbala even though it would not affect his position in the view of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. Hussain (as), the name that clouds scream when they pour rain upon us. Hussain (as), whose killers will be avenged by the Hujjat-ul-Allah. Hussain (as), who makes every heart with sincerity cry out his name. Hussain (as), who kept sincere and humble manners even during the slaughtering of his family and companions. He was the one who offered water to his enemy while dying of thirst. What do we learn from Hussain (as)? What do I learn from Hussain (as)? Hussain (as) remembers me the day Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) was struck with the poisonous sword. It was the famous saying of 'Ali that made the ground of the earth shake: "By the Lord of the Kaaba, I am successful" Once Hussain (as) fell on the ground, I always imagine him saying such a line. Some might say, how can they be successful if Allah took their lives? The physical aspects of the Ahl al-Bayt, the 11 Imams might have been killed, but their ideology stands strong. Hussain (as) is remembered every year, every month, every week, every day, every hour, every minute and every second. It is people like Yazeed, Shimr, Omaar ibn Saad - may Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى take away the Prophet's intercession for them - who have lost not only their afterlife, but also their life in this dunya. No one remembers these people nor do they have active shrines. The knowledge of a person stays for eternity. And we thank you for this O' Imams of the Ahl al-Bayt. We thank you O' Messenger of God for leaving us the Qu'ran and your Ahl al-Bayt who will never seperate from each other till they meet you at the Pond. Hussain (as) also resembles the struggle of the Mahdi (as) for me. Hussain (as), just like his brother and father, stood up against tyranny and injustice. Hussain (as) gave his life to save Islam from changing to that of the Ummayyads. Hussain (as) did not only defeat injustice. He did not only fight tyranny. He actually fought and spread the pure Islam for over 1400 years. Every second that passes, every minute that passes that we dedicate to remembering Hussain (as), we are actually spreading pure Islam. Everytime we introduce Hussain (as) to others, we are spreading Islam. Islam does not get spread by wars. But by tragedies like that of Hussain (as). We should ask something very important from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى this 11th of Muharram. Please, if you are reading this. I beg you. For the sake of towheed and Hussain (as)'s struggle. Please, make du'a today to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى with complete sincerity and humbleness. Make du'a for the reappearance of the Mahdi (as). Please, for once beg Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى and make a promise to stand side by side with the Mahdi (as). Wallahi, if we want to make the Mahdi (as) reappear, we should change our lifestyle and our humbleness to that of Hussain (as). Do not forget Mahdi's (as) pain for over thousand years. Do you think He likes to see the oppression and tyranny? Do you not think he wants to instignate a worldwide Karbala? We must prepare ourselves. Ya Allah, by the martyrs of Karbala, by the nowadays shohada in the wars against oppression. By the sincere and devoted fuqaha we have today. By the inhabitants of Qom who will rise with our Qa'im. By the people who are sincere and humble towards the Ahl al-Bayt. Ya Allah, even though our hearts and tongues do not always sing together, we ask you forgiveness and ask you your mercy upon our souls. We ask You to bless us with the status of being Shohada on the path of truth. We ask you - even though we do not have the 'ilm al-Ghayb - to hasten the reappearance of the Mahdi (as) for who we want to sacrifice our worthless human souls. On this day, which is one day after the maqtal, we sincerely ask you to grant us the fight against injustice. We have been bearing injustice over justice for over 60 generations. And by day it is getting worse. Ya Allah, do not forget our true intentions and do not forget that we strive to reach the status of true devotees. Ya Allah, make our hearts filled with love and affection towards the Thaqalayn, and please, do not punish our souls by taking away our soft hearts which cry for our beloved Hussain (as). Ya Allah, grants us the Prophet's intercession on the Day of Judgement. We cannot bear your severe punishments. Wa sallalahu 'ala Muhammad wa ale Muhammad.
  3. Aslaamu-alaikum to all the readers. I have a question that I was asked by a friend recently but got stuck for an answer. His question started with, in the Shia Fiqh, is The act of Hajj (pilgrimage) obligatory (Wajib) on females? To which I replied that Hajj is wajib on every Muslim, from my common sense. HOWEVER, he further asked me to prove if any females in prophets household (more so referring to Lady Khatijah sa, Lady Fatima sa, Lady Zainab sa) performed hajj and asked for prove. I have tried to research but couldn't find any obvious answers or hadees in regards. Has any one got more information to enlighten me about this? Many thanks, Jazakallah
  4. When Zaynab (a.s) reached Kufa, she addressed people with fury words: “Praise to Allah, and may the blessing of Allah be upon Muhammad and his progeny. O people of Kufa! You are hypocrites and deceitful. You feign to be sorry for the death of my brother and his companions. May you always shed tears. I find nothing in you but flattery, evil acts and thoughts, pride and spite and ill will. By Allah! You deserve lasting sorrow instead of joy. Shame on you, your hands is imbrued with the blood of the son of the Holy Prophet, the one who was your sole refuge in case of adversity. By your evil act and disloyalty, you incurred the wrath of Allah against you. Woe betides you! No one will intercede with Allah for you”. Her furious words provoked people of Kufa to avenge Imam al-Hussein (a.s)’s martyrdom, which frightened Ibn Ziyad and his cruel agents. She also delivered a furious sermon in the court of Yazeed that made his authority and despotic rule feel undermined. She said: “I fear no one but Allah. Make whatever evil plot you can. Blazes are waiting for you in the hereafter. You will be accountable to Allah for your atrocities”.

  6. Salam guys and thank in advance for helping with this, It is my understanding that the Shia' believe the Prophet SAW had only one daughter (Fatima Az Zuhra)? I'd like to be able to reconcile this point to see what their rationale is. 1. If the Prophet SAW wasn't the father of Ruqayyah, Umm Kulthum, and Zaynab, then who was? 2. If Umm Kulthum, Ruqayyah, Zeinab, were called as Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad and Ruqayyah as bint Muhammad etc., why did not their names/references change like in the case of Zaid ibn Harith, who was formerly known as Zaid ibn Muhammad? As you know, upon revelation the Prophet SAW was instructed that children should retain the names of their biological parents, this would extend to the ladies. 3. What are the dates of marriage between Khadijah RA and our Prophet SAW (were they married 25 years before her death?), dates of birth for the potential daughters of the Prophet SAW, according to Shia' rendition of history? According to Sunni Sources, the marriage of Khadijah RA and the Prophet SAW was in 595 AD. The following are also Sunni Sources: Ruqayyah was born approx. 601 AD, died 624, after/during battle of Badr Umm Kulthum was born approx. 603 AD, did 630 AD Zeinab was born 599 AD, and presumed to also die in 630AD It seems Lady Fatima AZ may or may not have been born in 605, or 615, and died 632 AD. Also, Qasim bin Muhammad, if the shia' believe that he was a son of the Prophet SAW, his birth was 598 AD, and died in 600 or 601 AD. Take note his birth precedes all of his sisters (or half sisters) births and was the first child. Following this narration of history, it would stand to reason that the Prophet SAW did indeed have four daughters under Khadijah RA. Unless the Shia narration of history of these birthdates and deaths are substantially different from the Sunni sources, I'd very much like to learn these. 4. Is the rationale that Zeinab, Ruqayyah, Umm Kulthum aren't Ahlul Bait or daughters of Prophet Muhammad SAW because they were not included in the cloak in Hadith - Ahl al-Kisa? From what I understand, in both Sunni/Shia sources, the cloak includes the Prophet SAW, Imam 'Ali AS, Fatima AZ, Imam Hassan RA & Imam Hussein RA. However, when did that take place?, I think according to Shia' and Sunni sources, it took place in 9th to 10th year of Hirjah which equates to 631 AD... We know Imam Hussein RA was born 626 AD, therefore his birth took place after Ruqayyah already died (per Sunni sources), and therefore could not be included in the cloak by default if she was in fact the daughter of the Prophet SAW. In any event, if the event of the cloak took place in 631AD, Ruqayyah, Zeinab, and Umm Kulthum have already died in 630 AD (per Sunni sources) and therefore could not have been included in the cloak by default. This implies that one cannot argue if whether these 3 individuals were or were not the Prophet's daughters based on the Hadith of the Cloak alone (incident of Mubahala). I'm looking for references, and concise answers, please. @wmehar2
  7. As Iranian religious leaders abstain from issuing fatwas instructing their followers to go on jihad in Syria, Iranians from different youth organizations continue to attend mass gatherings calling for the protection of shrines, tombs and mosques from salafist militants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qsq8T9pgWRo Thoughts?
  8. Assalamu Alaikum I am sure all of you are aware of the current situation in Syria. Unfortunately, the shrine of Hujr bin Adi (R.A.), sahaba of RasoolAllah (SAWW), has already been desecrated, and we do not want to see the same happen to the Holy Shrines of Bibi Zainab (S.A.) and Bibi Sakina (S.A.). Please sign the following petition, and share it with your family and friends. Please include the link in all your posts/threads. The following is a petition to UNESCO to protect Holy Shrines of Sayyeda Zainab (S.A.) and Sakina/Rukhaiya Bintul Hussain (S.A.): http://www.change.org/petitions/united-nations-unesco-protect-holy-shrines-of-sayyeda-zainab-and-sakina-rukhaiya-bintul-hussain?utm_campaign=share_button_mobile&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition#news I am not sure if posting petitions is against shiachat policies. If so, then please forgive me. PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE (facebook, twitter, email, etc.). Anyone can sign this petition, muslim or not. JazakAllah
  9. (bismillah) (salam) A couple of weeks ago I was reading about Mubahala and the date was 10 AH. So I thought to myself when was Hazrat Zainab AS born? Was she alive at that time or not? So I did a search at my favorite website www.al-islam.org and found that there are differences of opinion when she was born: either the 5th or 6th or 9th year of AH. So my question is, why do not the historians mention that Hazrat Zainab AS was present at Mubahela? Mubahila was in 10 AH. http://www.al-islam.org/history/history/mubahila.html Hazrat Zainab AS born 5 AH. http://www.al-islam.org/gracious/35.htm
