Ya Hussain ! (R.A)

ya_husayn__s_glint_by_iranians

Oh! you whose light illuminates
The ones that reach Heaven’s Gates
You are the reason why my eyes
Cried more tears than rain drops fell from the Skies
Our Holy Prophet held you when you were born
Overwhelmed with joy & sorrow….he was torn
He cried for you
Zahra was confused & wondered what did you do
Oh Noor Galby, your so called crime
Is inviting others in worship to the Sublime
You are the Ultimate Sacrifice
Receiving extreme injustice to in return gain the Justice
You paid a hefty price
And you paid it with your life
They decapitated your Holy Head
Which is better than being mentally dead
Hussain, you taught me to die rather than live dying
You taught me to live in truth and to die trying
What words describe the ambiance of the desert sand?
While alone you stand
Patience was what you advocated
Even after witnessing loved ones being annihilated
How many tears can an eye shed?
How much has your heart bled?
But Zainab still proclaimed, “I see nothing but beauty
To strive for Islam is our duty.”
Your death gave us life
Thanks to you we know how to overcome strife
We continue to remember your name till this day
You did not die in vain ! ! !

Urs of Hazrat Khwaja Fariduddin Ganjshakar (R.A)

Urs is on 5th Muharram 1439 Hijri –Tuesday 26th September 2017

 

Family & Lineage of Hazrat Khwaja Fariduddin Ganjshakar (R.A)

During the ups and downs of the political condition of Afghanistan, due to constant wars between the rulers of Ghazni and the Ghauri dynasties (548-584 A.H.), Hazrat Sheikh Shuaib, with his son Hazrat Jamaluddin Suleman (father of Hazrat Baba Fariduddin), was reported to have migrated from Kabul to Lahore whence he went to Kasur and, later on, to Multan and then finally settled down in Khotwal or Kenhiwsi (a village near Multan) which, at present, is known by the name of Chawli-Mashaikh.

Hazrat Jamaluddin Suleman married Bibi Qursum Khatoon who was the daughter of Maulana Wajihuddin Khijwandi, a very learned and pious gentleman, who was one of the descendants of Hazrat Abbas-bin-Abdul Muttallib and who had also migrated from Kabul to India and had settled down in a village called Kot-Kiror in the vicinity of Multan.

Bibi Qursum was a very pious lady. Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia reports that one night a thief entered her house. The Bibi Qursum was awake and as she cast a glance over the thief, he at once lost his eyesight and started wailing. Ultimately he prayed; “If Bibi Qursum would restore my eyesight, I pledge, I shall give up stealing forever.” Bibi Qursum felt pity upon him and prayed for the restoration of his eyesight and, by the grace of God, the thief’s sight was restored. He fell apologetically at the feet of Bibi Qursum in grateful submission. Next morning he and his whole family embraced Islam. He was given the Islamic name of Abdulla with the title of “Chawli-Mashaikh” which became the second popular name of village Khotwal. Hazrat Khwaja Shuaib, his son Khwaja Jamaluddin and Bibi Qursum Khatoon, all died in Khotwal and their ‘muzaars’ (tombs) stand there up to this day.

Hazrat Jamaluddin and Bibi Qursum bore 3 sons and one daughter:

  1. Hazrat Aizazuddin
  1. Hazrat Baba Fariduddin Ganjshakar
  1. Hazrat Najibuddin Mutawakkal
  1. Bibi Hajra, also known as “Jameela Khatoon”, who was the mother of Hazrat Makhdoom Alauddin Sabir Kaliyari, the 3rd Spiritual Successor in the Chishtia Order.

Birth

He was born on the night of 29th Shaabaan in 569 A.H. in Khotwal. There are different versions about his date of birth but, by consensus of opinion. 569 A.H. is taken to be the correct date. Two miracles surrounded his birth indicating that Hazrat Baba Fariduddin was indeed a born ‘wali’.

Miracles Surrounding his Birth

One day, during her pregnancy period, Hazrat Baba Farid’s mother wanted to pluck some plums from her neighbour’s tree without his permission. However, the child in her womb (Hazrat Baba Farid) created a severe pain in her stomach that forced her to abandon this idea. A few years after Baba Farid’s birth, his mother one day expressed: “My dear son, during your confinement I have never eaten anything which was unlawful,” Baba Farid however smiled and said: “But, dear mother, you wanted to pluck some plums from our neighbour’s tree without his permission when I had created a severe pain in your stomach which saved you from that unlawful act”, and on that note, he ran out of the house to play while his mother stood wonder-struck. She felt that the child would some day be a great saint.

Another miracle narrates that as stated above, Baba Farid was born on the night falling between the 29th of Shaabaan and 1st of Ramadan. Owing to cloudy weather on the evening of 29th, people could not see the moon to determine the beginning of the Ramadan month according to Islamic calendar, and were in a state of uncertainty as to whether they should or should not commence fasting from the next morning. They approached Hazrat Jamaluddin Suleman, father of Baba Farid, for a ‘Fatwa’ on this matter. He said: “If there was any doubt about the appearance of moon, then the commencement of fasting would be against the ‘Shariat’. In the meantime, a dervish appeared on the scene and, on being questioned about his opinion in this matter, he said:

 

“Why worry and remain in doubt? A child is to be born in the house ofHazratJamaluddin tonight who would be the ‘Qutub’ (spiritual monarch) of his time. If the child did not take its mother’s milk tonight you should think that the moon has appeared and theRamdanmonth will start from tomorrow.”

 

Thus, early in the morning at the time of ‘sehri’ (between 4 and 5 A.M.) people made anxious enquiries at Hazrat Jamaluddin’s house about the dervish’s prophesy and were surprised to learn that the newly born child had not taken his mother’s milk after midnight. With this corroboration, people started fasting. Later on, in the day, news came from Multan and other places that moon had appeared and the month of Ramdan had begun from that very day. Throughout the month of Ramdan, Baba Farid did not touch his mother’s milk during the day until the time of ‘Iftaar’.

The Urs of Imaam Hussain (R.A) (Karbala) on 10th Muharram 1439 Hirjri

FB_IMG_1506063171501

The Urs of Imaam Hussain (Karbala) will be on 10th Muharram  1439Hijri

This will be on approx Sunday 1st October 2017

 

The Day of Ashura is on the tenth day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks a very important day of the Mourning of Muharram.

Day of Ashura is commemorated by Muslims as a day of mourning for the death of Hazrat Hussain ibn Ali ( R.A), the grandson of the Final Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be Upon them) at the Battle of Karbala on 10 Muharram in the year 61 AH.In some  regions of Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain, and Pakistan, the Commemoration of Hazrat Hussain ibn Ali ( R.A) has become a national holiday and most ethnic and religious communities participate in it. Even in predominantly Hindu majority but secular country like India, Ashura (10th day in the month of Muharram) is a public holiday.

According to  Muslim tradition, Ibn Abbas narrates that the blessed Prophet  Muhammad (PBUT) came to Madina and saw the Jews fasting on the tenth day of Muharram. He asked, “What is this?” They said, “This is a good day, this is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy and Musa (Moses) fasted on this day.” So he fasted on this day and told the people to fast.

 

Hazrat Hussain (R.A) gave everything he had, including his life, for the greater good and for the benefit of those around him, and his epic legacy continues to inspire millions across the world on a daily basis.

Hazrat Hussain ibn Ali (R.A) was born in 620 AD to a family famed for their values of equality, love and peace. Raised by his grandfather, Prophet Muhammad (the last prophet of Islam, Peace be upon them), Hazrat Hussain (R.A) was known for his integrity, generosity of spirit and blindness to colour and social class. It was for this reason that people flocked to him and his family.

 

  • Hazrat Hussain (R.A) was a man of great love and compassion

 

Despite cultural expectations of him as a ‘prince’ of his tribe and a prominent figure in the Islamic Empire, Hazrat Hussain (R.A) would shun the grandeur of his status in favour of breaking bread with the poor and needy. He broke all cultural moulds, brought people together and helped where he could. A celebrated example was when he and his brother Hazrat Hassan (R.A) cared tirelessly for a poor blind man they came upon in their city, in spite of traditional social expectations.

Not long after the passing of Prophet Muhammad (PBUT), the leadership of the vast Islamic Empire had fallen into the hands of the corrupt. The good values that Prophet Muhammad (PBUT) had spent their life instilling into society was slowly eradicated as the new ruler, Yazid, from the Ummayad dynasty was determined to gain complete control.

  • Hazrat Hussain (R.A) witnessed the fundamental human rights of his fellow citizens being usurped and the morality from his society being drained under Yazid’s rule. He knew something had to be done.

Yazid ruled with an iron fist and demanded Hazrat Hussain (R.A) pay him an oath of allegiance, to lend credibility to his rule or be killed. It was here Hazrat Hussain (R.A) faced his dilemma… Should he give his oath of allegiance to a tyrant – and stand aside as the people around him were being oppressed? Or should he make a stand and risk great personal loss?

The timeless words of his grandfather blessed Propeht Muhammad (PBUT) echoed in his heart, and Hussain knew what he had to do: “The greatest stand is to speak the word of truth in the face of a tyrant.”

  • Hussain made the ultimate sacrifice

Hazrat Hussain (R.A)  chose to take a stand against Yazid and was forced to leave his home city under the threat of assassination by Yazid’s men. Along with his family and loyal companions, Hussain (R.A) made his way towards the East in an attempt to avoid and violence. It was on this journey Hussain (R.A), his family and companions were forced to stop by an army of over 30,000, on the hot plains of a land called Karbala.

Hussain (R.A) chose to take what was the macrocosm of his life and demonstrate it in a single act of extraordinary devotion. In 680 AD, after three days of no water and food in the scorching heat on the deserts of modern day Iraq, Hazrat  Hussain (R.A) stood and fell valiantly to defend those around him being oppressed and whilst standing for his principles. What’s all the more extraordinary is Harat Hussain (R.A) chose to stand against this mammoth army despite having only 72 companions with him

No more than 60 years had passed since the death of the Esteemed and blessed final prophet Muhammad (the last prophet of Islam), and the Muslim Empire was sliding into corruption under a tyrant from the Ummayad dynasty, Yazid.

Hussain ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad took a stand against Yazid’s illegitimate rule. Whilst Yazid was in equal parts feared and despised for his ruthlessness, Hussain was admired and respected by society at large. Mindful of this, Yazid decided that he would demand Hussain’s allegiance, hoping to gain some form of legitimacy for his inherited rule.

  • Hussain’s stand

Hussain had a choice to make. To endorse Yazid would no doubt mean a handsome reward and a life of luxury. To refuse would invariably lead to his own demise. What should he do? For Hussain the choice between the easy way and the right way was no choice at all. Hussain refused. He said:

I will never give Yazid my hand like a man who has been humiliated, nor will I flee like a slave… I have not risen to spread evil or to show off…

 

Rather, I have left to restore the teachings of my grandfather Muhammad… And I only desire to enjoin good values and prevent evil…

  • The journey from Mecca to Kufa

His life now under threat, Hussain decided to move himself and his family to Mecca in the hope that Yazid’s agents would respect the holy city. As he waited, pondering his next move, messages of support began to arrive from across the empire. He left for Kufa, a city in modern day Iraq, but en route, he wasintercepted by a battalion of government soldiers, who blocked Hussain and his supporters from going towards Kufa and instead forcibly diverted towards the desert town of Karbala.

Once they reached Karbala, government forces surrounded their small band and blocked their access to the water supply. With both camps stationed at Karbala, a stalemate ensued. Hussain had made it clear that he could not, and would not, bow to Yazid. The opposing forces of 30,000 soldiers, which vastly outnumbered Hussain’s small band of seventy-two men and their families, were under strict orders not to let Hussain leave, but at the same time were loath to kill a man whose status and reputation they were well aware of.

After a week, word reached Hussain that Yazid had sent orders that he was not to be allowed to leave Karbala until he had taken an oath of allegiance. The end was drawing close.

  • The final night

That night Hussain assembled his group, stressing to them that it was his life that Yazid wanted and that they might be able to escape. Again, Hussain’s selflessness shone through. There he stood, amongst his family and companions, all having been deprived of water in the scorching desert for three days, pleading with them to leave him and save themselves!

After a few days of this stalemate, the government forces were commanded to attack and kill Hussain and his companions. Hussain’s men were vastly outnumbered. One by one, they were killed, and the government forces massed around Hussain, eventually killing him.

  • Death with dignity is better than a life of humiliation’

After his death, the women and children from Hussain’s party were taken captive. His sister, Zainab, took up the mantle of leadership of the small band, and gave speech after speech condemning the actions of Yazid and his government, culminating in a confrontation in the ruler’s own court. Zainab was perhaps the first person to be inspired by Hussain’s stand, using it as a catalyst for change. She refused to be subdued and put her fear to one side so she could hold to account those responsible for the moral decay of society.

Despite the pervasive sexism of society at the time, Zainab managed to lead and inspire both men and women. Hussain’s example, that one man can stand alone against an army of thousands, inspired her to the point where she castigated and berated a murderous dictator in his own palace, laying the foundations for the eventual overthrow of  the Ummayid dynasty.

Today millions of people pay homage to Hussain ibn Ali for his stand and annually mourn the tragic Battle of Karbala in which Hussain, his family and loyal companions were brutally killed one by one. Pilgrims from all walks of life visit the Imam Hussain shrine to pay their respects in the city of Karbala, Iraq,

  • Hussain’s legacy of compassion and integrity lives on

Through this tragic end but heroic act of sacrifice, Hussain inspired millions around the world. His legacy is that despite being killed for what he stood for, ultimately he was victorious as his death became the catalyst for changes and led to the collapse of Yazid’s tyrannic rule.
