The new Islamic year has approached us once
again. And as usual it begins with the month of grief , Moharram-ul-Moharram.
Unlike the customs of this world we do not celebrate it by fireworks or cheering.
Our way is to grieve for Imam Husain A.S and his Holy family. We offer our tears
in hope for salvation. Imam Husain A.S , His companions , nephews , brothers
and sons were martyred in this month and we will always remember the tragedy
of Karbala till the end of this world. The most important message of Imam Husain
A.S which was that we should all remember to never yield to a tyrant. Our heads
can be cut off but never bowed before anyone but Allah. We , the lovers of Imam
Husain A.S have promised to safeguard not only this message of the holy Imam
but all the messages which was conveyed to us through the sacrifices in Karbala.
No one before Imam Husain A.S and no one after
Him could ever present such sacrifices for the rescuing of Islam. By the blood
of the martyrs of Karbala the roots of Islam were strengthened. Then we should
always bear in mind the sufferings of the Ahlul-Bayt A.S who put up with these
tortures only for Islam. We were teached that everything and everyone can be
sacrificed for Islam but not the reverse. And if we are true followers of the
Ahlul-Bayt A.S we will follow their footsteps. The days of performing our Azadari
are here and we will all do our best in offering our condolences to the Holy
Prophet S.A.W and His holy household. Our holy lady Janabe Fatema Zehra S.A
will surely preserve our tears which will be for our own benefit on the Day
I am sure the elders , youths and the children
, women and men , sick and the healthy , rich and the poor will make every effort
in performing the azadari. We are the lovers of Imam Husain A.S who were not
even born when the tragedy of Karbala occured but we carry the love for the
Ahlul-Bayt in our hearts which is the greatest blessing of Allah. When our Holy
Prophet S.A.W was informed about the martyrdom of Imam Husain A.S , He told
it further to Imam Ali A.S , His holy daughter S.A and Imam Hasan A.S. Janabe
Fatema Zehra S.A was upset but accepted it for the will of Allah. She asked
her holy father that: "This tragedy will take place when none of us will be
alive then who will weep for my son and who will remember His sacrifices?"
The Holy Prophet S.A.W then introduced us. The
lovers of Imam Husain A.S will always remember this tragedy and grieve for the
martyrs of Karbala. The Azadari-e-Husaini is the eternal miracle of Islam and
we have given our word to safeguard this miracle!
We will offer our condolence in the best way
we can and hope that Bibi Fatema S.A, our Holy Prophet S.A.W and all the Holy
Imams (A.S) especially our Living Imam , Imam Mehdi A.S will accept our condolences.
