“O’People, The Prophet of Islam has said that if a believer sees a tyrannical ruler transgressing against Allah and his Messenger and oppressing people, but does nothing by word or action to change the situation, then it will be just for God to place him where he deservingly belongs. Do you not see to what low level the affairs have come to, do you not observe that truth has not adhered and falsehood has no limits. And as for me, I look upon death but a means of attaining martyrdom. I consider life among the transgressors an agony and an affliction”.

Hazrat Imam Hussain ( AS )

“This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed MY favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.”

– Quran – Al Maida (5:3)

“There is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Fire than the day of Arafat. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels saying, ‘What do these people (the Hajis) want?”

“It ( Fasting on Youm-e-Araafat ) expiates the sins of the previous year and that of the following year.”

– Prophet Muhammad ( SAW ) ( Saheeh Muslim)

…..”Certainly, this world is a house of truth for those who look into it carefully, an abode of peace and rest for those who understand its ways and moods and it is the best working ground for those who want to procure rewards for life in the Hereafter. It is a place of acquiring knowledge and wisdom for those who want to acquire them, a place of worship for the friends of Allah and for Angels. It is the place where prophets received revelations of Allah. It is the place for virtuous people and saints to do good deeds and to be assigned with rewards for the same. Only in this world they could trade with Allah’s Favors and Blessings and only while living here they could barter their good deeds with His Blessings and Rewards. Where else could all this be done? Who are you to abuse the world when it has openly declared its mortality and mortality of everything connected with it, when it has given everyone of its inhabitants to understand that all of them are to face death, when through its ways it has given them all an idea of calamities they have to face here, and through the sight of its temporary and fading pleasures it has given them glimpses of eternal pleasures of Paradise and suggested them to wish and work for the same. If you study it properly you will find that simply to warn and frighten you of the consequences of evil deeds and to persuade you towards good actions, every night it raises new hopes of peace and prosperity in you and every morning it places new anxieties and new worries before you. Those who passed such lives are ashamed of and repent the time so passed abuse this world. But there are people who will praise this world on the Day of Judgment that it reminded them of the Hereafter and they took advantage of these reminders. It informed them of the effects of good deeds and they made correct use of the information it advised them and they were benefited by its advice”

Hazrat Ali ( RA )

( from Nahj ul Balagha – Translated by Askari Jafri)

Thankyou! Imam Hussain ( AS ) and companions, you did for Islam and muslims what no one with 72 men and 51 children can even think of doing for any nation.

سبھی مسلم ہیں مقروض حُسین ابنِ علی کے
جاں ہاری ، باطل کے یزیدوں سے نہ ہارے


All muslims are in debted to Hussain Ibn e Ali ( AS)
Who lost his life but did not bow down to falsehood of yazeeds

” And it is HE who has set free the two kinds of water , one palatable and sweet and the other salty and bitter and HE has made between them a barrier and a forbidding partition “

– Quran ( Al-Furqan : 53 )
