Imagine all the lessons you can learn by studying the entire event of Karbala.


Abbas, Imam Hussain’s half-brother (Imam Ali’s son), respects the authority of Imam Hussain to the degree that he does not call him “brother”. This shows the importance of leadership and the crucial role of followers, and how a follower should behave.


Abbas did not call his enemies “Kaffirs”. Instead, he referred to them as “Faasiq” (ie Corrupt). Meaning, you can never call a Muslim “Kaffir”, no matter how corrupt they may be.


Imam Hussain did not object to the term “Faasiq” being used to refer to Yazid’s troops.

This itself is a litmus test of measuring True Muslims against Corrupt Muslims.


Killing and fighting corrupt people is not always the preferred me! thod of confronting the corrupt.


Imam Hussain was very well aware about the historical impact of his actions and the actions of his followers.

So should we.


Imam Hussain did not just say “no”, instead, he provided an alternative to calm down an angry soldier. The solution is completely the opposite of what was requested.

Fighting and killing were requested, but Imam Hussain offered the alternative of water (life) and helping children (future of mankind).


Abbas did not act alone, and before he could act on anything, he stepped forward and asked for permission.


When permission was denied, he did not argue or rebel or ask questions. He obeyed and went to fetch water for children.


Imam Hussain’s mission was not to fight or to kill. His mission was to establish the true Islam, and show to the world the difference between his Islam and the Islam of Umayyads.



Imam Hussain explains why he is refusing the request, providing a rational explanation that includes the message of peace.

So many lessons in one dialogue. Imagine all the lessons you can learn by studying the entire event of Karbala.

Zindagi tujhko musibat se guzarna hoga
Teri aankho main mohomed ka khazana hoga
Ya Hussain tumhe Karbala phir aana hoga
Sar deke islam bachana hoga
Macca Medine ko phir se sajana hoga
Nana ki bhatki hui ummat ko
Naya rasta dikhana hoga
Ek aasu mien ek maan ka fasana hoga
Ro roke yeh gham ka dariya bahana hoga
Koran ke nukte main waqt ka sirana hoga
Karbala ki khaak mein koran ke pannon par
Khoon ka dhabbon ko dhulaana hoga
Sham ki bazaar main islam
Ka doosra chehra dikhana hoga
Kutbe dekar zainab ko batana hoga
Sher ki beti ko shariyat sikhana hoga
Tillawte Koran naizhe se sunnana hoga
Mashke sakina ko abbas ke khoon main nahana hoga
Jo alam jung main na jhuka use phir se alambdar banana a hoga
Zindagi tujhko musibat se guzarna hoga..
Andhere main phir se la ihe laha illal lah ka kalma sunana hoga
eid e ghadeer ki virasat aur ali ko wali banana hoga
ma kunto moulah faizun ali un moulah
phir se sunana hoga
nade ali padke is dar ko bhagana hoga.,.
zindagi tujhko kya kya khel dikhana hoga
ek talwar se na jane kitne
zulfikar bana hoga..
yazidiyat ko kuchalkar
haiwaniyat ko insaan banana hoga

these are words that i have been rattling on my walks , i wanted to post this on eid e ghadeer ,, it never happened i have visitors from canada so i was caught up with them.. my words like my love for my beloved imam hussain are born without borders..
