Hazrat Imam Hussain (a.s.) who drank life-giving water from the river of poison

Written by: Zafar Iqbal Zafar Lahore Pakistan
Son of Sayyiduna Hussain RA, son of Banu Hashim and Sayyidna Ali Murtaza RA by Dadhyal, and by Nanhyal, the precious jewel of Sayyida Nasa Al-Alamin Fatima Zahra (RA) and the shining light of the Prophet’s Household, Najib Tarfeen Hashmi. Sayyedna Hussain, who was born in 5 Shaban 4 A.H., is a prominent name in the family of Arabs in terms of honor, height and greatness in his era.

Hazrat Hussain’s martyrdom is understood only when his blessed life is understood, the grief of martyrdom has its place, but the life of Hussain is an important way to prepare for our hereafter. Hussaini is actually a perfect reflection of the Messenger of Allah. Sayyid Hussain RA, apart from religious sciences and perfections, also excelled in the popular sciences and arts of the Arab era. He said: He is the best master of eloquence and eloquence. Similarly, his words of kindness and wise sayings are a great lesson in morality and wisdom. He was very pious and ascetic. It is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an that Allah’s commandments, prayer, zakat, fasting, Hajj, and the rights of the servants were being followed. They were going somewhere and some poor people were eating on the way. When they saw you, they invited you. They said, “O son of the Messenger, please eat with us.” Upon their request, you immediately got off the horse and participated in the meal. He said, “Allah does not like the arrogant. I have accepted your invitation. You should also accept my invitation. I took them home and fed them. Self-sacrifice and righteousness was the very bold title of your book Virtues of Morals. You were a mujahid in the way of Allah. You did jihad.” They are the bright achievements of the history of Islam and the garden of the right religion was made lush and green by the guidance of the prophet because of them. It happened in 15 A.H. In this he saw the essence of Bahadi and made history of bravery and generosity. There is no example of him in his generosity. Walking through the streets, he reached his door, knocked on the door and began to offer his needs in the form of poems. He called Ghulam Qanbar and he was present and he said, “What do you have left of our allowance?” He said, “Bring those dirhams. A person more entitled than our family has come. Then he handed over those dirhams to the beggar. You used to serve guests, give to those who wanted them, forgive themselves, and fulfill the needs of the needy.” Don’t deprive the beggar. Clothe the naked. Feed the hungry. Give water to the pilgrims. There is no example of you in keeping the covenant. You used to respect all the Companions. Sayyid Na Ali al-Murtaza said that Sayyidna Hasan RA resembled Sarwar Du’Alam sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam from chest to blessed head and Sayyidna Hussain RA. They were more similar from the chest to the feet. The Prophet ﷺ said: Hasan and Hussain are the flowers of Paradise and the leaders of the youth of Paradise. To me there are fragrances in the world. He who loved them loved me. Whoever harbored grudge against them has harbored it from me. Hussain is from me and I am from Hussain, and the Prophet ﷺ said: My awe for Hasan, my leadership, courage, generosity are my inheritance. In the lifetime of Amir Mu’awiyah, this matter remained until the common people of Syria and Iraq accepted Yazid’s allegiance and when other gentlemen saw that the Muslims had gathered for Yazid in large numbers, but the people of Madinah And especially Sayyidna Hussain (RA) Sayyidna Abdullah bin Umar (RA) Sayyidna Abdullah bin Zubair (RA) remained firm on the refusal of Yazid’s pledge of allegiance and continued to declare the truth without caring about anyone, that Yazid was never worthy of being made the caliph of the Muslims. That Amir Muawiya died and Yazid bin Muawiya took his place. The importance of the cause of upholding the right forced him to face dangers and on the 3rd to the 8th of Dhu al-Hijjah 06 AH, he left Makkah for Kufa. At that time Amr bin Saad Al-Aas was appointed as the ruler of Makkah by Yazid. When he got the news of his coming, he sent some men to stop him on the way. Sayyiduna Hussain refused to return and went ahead. The Muslims of Iraq and Kufa were eager for their faith and responsibility to free them from the slavery of falsehood and give them an atmosphere of truth. While facing all the sufferings, difficulties and conspiracies of Yazid with patience and wisdom, before the 10th of Muharram, all his Ahl al-Bayt. And gathered his companions This speech was delivered after the praise and thanksgiving. I do not consider anyone else’s companions to be more loyal than my companions, nor do I consider anyone’s family to be more virtuous and merciful than my Ahl al-Bayt. Say, “I am sure there will be a war tomorrow, that’s why I gladly allow you to go back. You people go to your towns and villages. It is night. Take one camel at a time. I am saying this so that the people of Yazid can find me.” No one will be found after me. The enemy wants to kill me. But the feelings that were expressed were these. You fight alone and give your life in the way of Allah and we run away in fear of our lives and stay alive. May Allah not let us see this day. It is against honor. What face will we show and what answer will we give? We will be asked, we have left our master and our leader, and with what mouth will we say that we did not participate in the war, nor did we shoot arrows or swords for him? By God, we will not be separated from you. I don’t have the courage to write about what happened in the field of Karbala after the passion and enthusiasm of Nisari. It is narrated from Hazrat Hasan Basri that the love of the world is the root of all evil. Yazid’s heart was the love of the world. He was bound by the chain of lust, so he was blinded by fame and power. Heedless of the end, in return for betraying the Messenger of God, Yazid’s impure rule lasted for three years and six months. He died at the age of forty-nine in Hawarin, Hamas, Syria, on Rabi-Nur-22 Hijri.
That throne is in which grave, where is that crown? O dust, tell me where is Yazid today
The end of Yazid’s reign of a few years, which was a lesson in this world and the hereafter, deserved to be disgraced. But Hussain RA is still ruling all the hearts of all humanity. will continue to make a difference
The martyrdom of Sayyiduna Hussain teaches us that what he considered to be false, he became a mountain of steadfastness. In the battle of Ghamsan, in the world of Kusampari, you did not neglect the remembrance of God, you remained bound to fasting and prayers, you did not leave the foot of patience. Sacrifice has been declared as the beginning of eternal life. Indeed Hussain (RA) is the martyr on whom martyrdom itself is cherished. The proof and belief of love and loyalty to him (RA) is to live in his footsteps. Instead of accepting falsehood, martyrdom should be rejected. The truth that comes out after enduring oppression has an eternal effect. God does not burden anyone beyond his strength, but the burden He placed on Hazrat Imam Hussain (a.s.) is due to his spiritual strength. Cutting off your head and raising the head of truth in the doomsday gives us a lesson that instead of bowing before Yazid of every age, it is the duty of the believer to stand with the word of truth by putting the gates of cowardice on the path of martyrdom. Cruelty is not a believer’s life
