Protectiveness

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am not familiar with all the Quran and Hadith. 

If a person sees another person beating up someone else, or whipping someone, and then that person feels protective and gets between the aggressor and intended victim - putting themself in the way of danger, is this course of action or attitude of heart ever recommended or justified by any Hadith or Surah?

I truly believe the motto of the Shia is to stand up to oppression of all kinds. The battle of Karbala is a prime example. Islam isn't a religion of peace and it never sought out to be just look at history, It is a religion of Justice.

I believe there was a hadith where a youth was beating his wife and she sought out help to Amir ul momineen. When he approached the man, he was quite violent and rude towards the Imam to the point where Imam Ali pulled out the Zulfiqar the man immediately recognized his sword and sought forgiveness. I'll try and find the hadith.

Ah found it. It's the last story on the oppression of women. http://www.ezsoftech.com/stories/amirul.mumineen.asp

Just one the many times Imam Ali interceded on injustice! Inshallah someone wiser will come with more examples.
