Anglo Saxon Chronicles & Rain Of Blood (Ashura)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Ashura aniversity is coming. At ashura in Karbala, Imam Husain who is grandson of Prophet of Islam Muhammad (pbuh&hf) be killed. In islamic books narrated that at ashura that Imam Husain killed in Karbala, blood has been rained.

This article is a view of this event mentioned at Anglo Saxon Chronicles .

The Tragedy of Karbala

Most Muslims know of the
, however, it is only the followers of the Aylul Bayt (‘a) who understand the teachings in Islam according to the Holy Aylul Bayt (‘a) who were slaughtered by the enemy in the desert sands of Karbala, Iraq. Imam Hussain (‘a) was the last of "Al Kisa ", the "Holy Five", for which the entire universe was created. Ref: Hadith al-Kisa.

Anglo Saxon Chronicles

So what does the "Anglo Saxon Chronicles" have to do with such a gruesome event of which the likes the world had never seen?

When our correspondent from the Gulf sent in these scanned pages, Haji had highlighted one section of the chronicles and after having read her highlighted segment, my mind immediately travelled to the desert sands of Karbala and then to our Lady Zaynab’s (‘a) speech in Kufa [see segment above]. In that speech there is one particularly important statement for the purpose of understanding this exercise. Lady Zaynab (‘a) has said in the above speech:

"Would you doubt if after all blood rains from the skies above."

When I read this speech for the first time, a while ago, I visualised exactly what our Lady Zaynab (‘a) had said, however after researching for some time of it having rained blood in Arabia I found that it did indeed rain blood in Great Britain in the same year as the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain (‘a).

The Chronicles state that:


In the year 685 AD (Christian Calendar):

"685. In this year in Britain it rained blood, and milk and butter were turned into blood."


The recording of the event in a distant land (Great Britain) who had no interest other than recording history, was the only way that I see that it could have come to light as a proof.

When he (‘a) was martyred, the sky wept blood for Imam Hussain (‘a).

It is reported that when Imam Hussain (‘a) was killed not only the residents of the heavens cried for Imam Hussain (‘a), but even the skies cried for him and they wept blood for this Mazlum. This is reported not only in the Shi’a books but also in the most important Sunni references:

“On the day of the martyrdom of al-Hussein (‘a) the sky rained blood . . . .”


Thakhaa’er al-Uqba pp 144, 145, 150.

Al-Sawaa’eq al-Muhriqah pp 116, 192.

“There was not a stone which was not lifted but underneath it was found blood . . . . ”


Al-Sawaa’eq al-Muhriqah pp 116, 192.

Tathkirat-ul-Khawaas p 284,

Tafsir ibn Kathir vol. 9, p 162 . . . . .

Nadra al-Azdiya, a woman who was contemporary with the Imam Husayn, is said to have reported:

‘When al-Husayn b. ‘Ali was killed, the sky rained down blood, so that next morning we found our wells and water jugs filled with it.’

Therefore, the conclusion to this literary exercise is that there is irrefutable proof that the skies did rain blood over much of the world after the event of killing the Grandson of Prophet Muhammad (‘s), Imam Hussain b. Ali b. Abu Thalib (‘a), reflecting the enormity of the tragedy and the truth in the powerful words of Sayyeda Zaynab (‘a).

We ask for Sayyeda Zaynab (‘a) to forgive us for any mistakes in this work insh’

a good miracle to show the world would for it to rain blood or red every ashura in karbala .

now that would be proof.

which ofcourse means it won't happen

And those who have no knowledge say: Why does not Allah speak to us or a sign come to us? Even thus said those before them, the like of what they say; their hearts are all alike. Indeed We have made the communications clear for a people who are sure. [Qur'an 2:118, Shakir translation]

There is enough for those who want to see. If things had to be made so obvious that everyone could see the truth without any effort, then there wouldn't be much point to this life.

How come nobody else wrote down their milk and butter had turned into blood? Only one guy wrote this and it wasn't even the same year as Ashura....... With how many millions of people there are I would surely expect one person who's diet required; milk, butter, would mention this, not just some Muslim or one English guy....
