ashura.muharram.shia-muslim.imam hossain.husayn.true islam

 

He was not an ordinary human being.

او یک انسان معمولی نبود .

His name was Hussein.

 

 نامش حسین بود .

Hussein was the grandson of Muslims" holy prophet Muhammad.

 حسین نوه پیامبر ما مسلمانان محمد ص بود . 

He stood up against oppressors and he is a role model for Muslims in sacrifice, freedom, liberty and resistance

او کسی بود که در برابر ستمگران ایستاد و در بین ما مسلمانان الگو فداکاری ، آزادی ، آزادگی و ایستادگی در برابر ظلم است.

We call him imam, imam means leader and rector.

ما او را امام میخوانیم . امام به معنی راهنما و پیشواست .

In year 61 AH (a way of calculating year based on the position of the moon), Imam Hussein along with his wife, children and siblings went to Iraq from Arabia, in order to respond to Iraqi"s request;

امام حسین در سال 61 قمری به همراه همسر و فرزندان و خواهرانش از کشور عربستان  به سمت کشور عراق حرکت کرد تا به درخواست مردم عراق پاسخ دهد.

More than 4000 Iraqi wrote a letter to Imam Hussein and asked him to come to Iraq and rescue them from cruelness and injustice of their king "yazid" and bring justice, goodness and beauty.

 4000 نفر از مردم عراق برای امام حسین نامه نوشتند و از او درخواست کردند که به  کشور عراق بیاید و آن ها را از ظلم و ستم آن حاکم که یزید نام داشت نجات دهد و عدل و خوبی و زیبایی را در جهان به پا کند.

Yazid was a cruel leader and he took peoples" property by force and represented Islam in an unrealistic and cruel way.

یزید حاکم ستمگری بود که   بر مردم ستم میکرد و آموال آنان را به زور میگرفت و چهره ای خشن و غیر واقعی از اسلام نشان میداد. 

Actually he does not know anything of real Islam and do whatever he like to do and whatever benefits him.

در واقع او چیزی از اسلان حقیقی نمی دانست و هرچه دوست داشت و برایش منفعت داشت را انجام می داد.

He had broken a lot of absolute law in Islam himself!! So Iraqis asked for help, and Imam Hussein answered them by coming to Iraq.

او مهمترین قوانین اسلام را خودش زیر پا می گذاشت!! بنابراین مردم عراق تقاضای کمک کردند و امام حسین با آمدن به عراق به درخواست آنها پاسخ داد.

Yazid prevented Iraqis to join Imam Hussein by force and threat.

 یزید با استفاده از زور و تهدید و ترس جلو مردم را از پیوستن به امام حسین گرفت.

On the other hand he prevented Imam Hussein to inter in capital city of Iraq so imam had to stay in a midway land called "Karbala".

 از طرفی هم به امام حسین اجازه نداد وارد پایتخت عراق شود واو  ناچار شد در سرزمینی به نام کربلا بماند .

In Karbala, cruel yazid along with ten thousands soldier and military man stood against him and ordered his army to start a war with Imam Hussein.

 در آنجا، یزید ستمگر و زورگو با ده ها هزار سرباز و جنگنده در برابرش ایستاد و دستور به جنگ با امام حسین داد .

Imam and his wife and his children and siblings with his companions were only 72 people!!

ولی امام حسین  به همراه همسر، فرزندان، خواهران، برادران و یارانش تنها 72 نفر بودند.

ashura.muharram.shia-muslim.imam hossain.husayn.true islam

One side an army with 72 soldiers and on the other side thousands of soldiers!!

سپاه حسین 72 نفر و سپاه یزید ده هاهزار نفر.

But cruelness did not stop here; they surrounded the river and did not let Hussein"s companions even the children and women to drink water!!

اما ظلم و بی رحمی در همینجا تمام نمی شود؛ آنها دور تا دور رودخانه رامحاصره کرد و به حسین و یارانش، حتی کودکان و زنان اجازه ندادند که آب بنوشند!!

After a few day of surrounding and not drinking even a drop of water in a hot desert, all Hussein"s companions were desperately thirsty and weak, they cannot do anything but tolerating the situation they"ve trapped in.

بعد از گذشت چند روز از محاصره و ننوشیدن حتی ی قطره آب در آن صحرای داغ، همه یاران حسین بشدت تشنه و ضعیف شدند و هیچ کاری جز تحمل شرایطی را که درآن گیر کرده بودند، نمی توانستند انجام دهند.

That was not a fair war.

این یک جنگ نا عادلانه بود .

Yazid told Imam Hussein, if you want me to stop killing you and not imprisoned your family, you should accept my leadership and accept all my deeds and unite with me!! (Consider this fact that Imam Hussein is the Prophet Muhammad"s grandson and yazid had been violating most of Islamic laws purposely, so there is no way Imam Hussein accept yazid"s conditions!!).

 یزید به امام حسین گفت اگر میخواهی من از کشتن شما دست بردارم و خانواده ات را به اسارت نبرم، باید مرا به رسمیت بشناسی و با من متحد شوی (این حقیقت را درنظر بگیرید که امام حسین نوه پیامبر اسلام محمد بود و یزید به عمد بیشتر قوانین اسلام را نقض کرده بود، بنابراین هیچ راهی نبود که امام حسین شرایط یزید را بپذیرد!!).

So Hussein obviously did not accept his offer and told him that "dying with dignity is way better that living with dishonor".

اما امام حسین پیشنهاد او را قبول نکرد و گفت مرگ با عزت بهتر از زندگی با ذلت است.

After this yazid (god never forgive him) attacked Imam Hussein and his few companions with his huge army.

سپس یزید که (لعنت خدا بر او باد) به همراه صدها هزار نفر به امام حسین و یاران اندکش حمله کردند .

Every single person in imam"s side was killed one by one.

یاران امام حسین یکی پس از دیگری شهید شدند . 

One of imam"s son who was named" ali akbar" started fighting back and killed some of the enemies, but a lot of yazid"s army attacked him and tore apart his body and cut off his head!!

یکی از پسران امام حسین که علی اکبر نام داشت ، شروع به مقابله با دشمن کرد و چندین نفر از آنان را به هلاکت رساند اما تعداد زیادی از دشمنان به او حمله کردند و بدنش را قطعه قطعه کردند و سر از بدنش جدا نمودند .

All imams" companion was killed and their head were cut off while they were thirsty so bad.

تمام یاران امام حسین با لبان تشنه کشته شدند و سرشان از تنشان جدا شد.

After ali akbar, imam"s nephew "ghasem" went to battle field.

بعد از علی اکبر پسر برادر امام حسین به نام قاسم به میدان جنگ رفت .

He was only 13 years old but he fought like a brave fighting man.

 او 13 سال بیشتر نداشت ولی همچون یک مرد جنگی شجاع جنگید.

Ghasem killed 3 soldiers of enemy but then they killed him and they throw stone at him and then they cut his head off!!

قاسم 3 نفر از دشمنان را به هلاکت رساند و سپس کشته شد ، بدنش سنگ باران شد و سر از تنش جدا شد.

The last brother of imam wanted to go to the battle field but youngest daughter of imam asked him to bring water because they were so thirsty that they cannot tolerate.

آخرین برادر امام حسین میخواست به میدان جنگ برود اما دختر کوچک امام حسین از عموی خود تقاضای آب کرد . چون کودکان دیگر نمی توانستند تشنگی را تحمل کنند.

ashura.muharram.shia-muslim.imam hossain.husayn.true islam

Imam"s brother was "abbas", he was a strong and brave fighter.

برادر امام حسین که عباس نام داشت تو جنگجویی قوی و شجاع بود .

All the yazid army scared of him and ran away when they hear his name.

 تمام لشکر دشمن از وی میترسیدند و از نامش وحشت داشتند .

abbas founded a way to the river to bring water for innocent children.

عباس راهی به سمت رودخانه پیدا کرد تا برای آن کودکان بی گناه آب بیاورد

When he arrived near the river all the enemy soldier ran away.

وقتی رسید همه دشمنان پا به فرار گذاشتند .

Abbas took water and guide his horse toward kids but enemy soldier shoot arrow at him to stop him.

عباس آب برداشت و با اسب خود به طرف بچه ها رفت اما در راه بازگشت از رودخانه دشمنان به سمتش تیر پرتاب کردند تا او را متوقف کنند. 

They cut his right hand off first, abbas took the water with his left hand and continue his way but enemy cut his left hand too

 ابتدا دست راست او را قطع کردند، ولی عباس مشک را به دست چپش سپرد و به راهش ادامه داد ولی دشمنان دست چپ عباس را نیز قطع کردند .

He had no hand to take the water so he took it with his teeth and ran toward kids to give them the water but enemy shoot an arrow to his eye and one to his water container.

عباس دستی نداشت که مشک را بگیرد و به ناچار مشک آب را به دندان گرفت و به سمت بچه ها دوید تا آب را به آنها برساند اما به نا گاه تیری به چشم و تیری به مشک عباس زدند .

The arrow tore the water container and all the water wasted.

 مشک سوراخ شد و آب بر زمین ریخت .

Abbas fell off his horse and hit the ground with his face.

عباس با از اسب صورت به زمین خورد.

Enemy smashed his head with an iron hammer.

دشمن با گرزی آهنین به سرش کوبیدند .

Abbas could not give the water to the children and was killed.

 عباس نتوانست آب را به بچه های بی گناه برساند و کشته شد.

All imams" companions were killed and there were no one left

همه یاران حسین کشته شدند و دیگر کسی باقی نمانده بود.

Imam had a six month old son, "ali asghar".

 امام حسین یک فرزند شش ماهه به نام علی اصغر داشت .

The infant could not cry due to thirstiness.

نوزاد شش ماهه از شدت تشنگی بی جان شده بود .

Imam showed him to the enemy army and said "this innocent six month old infant is dying, give some water only to him", but suddenly an arrow shoot to the infant"s throat and cut his head off.

امام حسین او را به لشکر دشمن نشان داد و گفت : "این طفل شش ماهه بی گناه در حال مرگ است، اگر میتوانید فقط به این بچه کمی آب بدهید"، اما به ناگاه از طرف دشمن تیری به طرف گلوی آن نوزاد شش ماهه پرتاب شد و سر از تن آن نوزاد جدا شد .

Imam got so sad and buried the infant there.

امام حسین بی تاب شد بچه را در دست گرفت و اورا همانجا به خاک سپرد.

ashura.muharram.shia-muslim.imam hossain.husayn.true islam

Then imam said goodbye to his wife and children and sisters.

سپس امام حسین با همسر و کودکان و خواهران خود خداحافظی کرد .

Everyone was crying, but imam had to go to the battle field.

کودکان و زنان گریه میکردند، اما امام حسین مجبور بود به میدان جنگ برود.

Without any other help, no kid, no brother, and no army, he attacked the enemy. 

وی تنهای تنها که نه فرزندى همراه او بود نه برادرى و نه یار و یاورى

به لشکر دشمن حمله ور شد .

He killed some cruel soldier but enemy shoot arrow toward him and imam fell off his horse and they cut his head too.

چندین نفر از دشمنان بیرحم را کشت اما دشمن به صورت نا جوانمردانه به وی تیراندازی کرد و امام حسین به زمین افتاد و آنها سر از تنش جدا کردند.

But they did not stop they unforgiving actions, they ran across his dead body with horses.

اما آنها کارهای غیرقابل بخشش خود را تمام نکردند وبا اسب بر روی بدن بی جانش تاختند .

After this, yazid gave an order to attack the women and children and imprisoned them.

آنگاه یزید دستور داد به طرف بچه ها و زنان حمله کنند و آنان را به اسارت بگیرند .

Imam Hussein is our third imam.

امام حسین سومین امام ما است .

He sacrificed himself for preventing Islam to be destroyed.

 امام حسین که درود خدا بر او باد برای ماندن و از بین نرفتن دین اسلام جانش را فدا کرد .

Yazid presented Islam wrongly, in a furious way, so imam was against him.

 یزید حاکم ستمگر آن زمان چهره اسلام را خشن جلوه میداد و امام حسین با او به مخالفت برخاست.

Imam Hussein is the symbol of freedom and liberty, he accept dying instead of uniting with the oppressors.

امام حسین مظهر آزادی و آزادگی است که حاضر شد بمیرد ولی با ستمگران متحد نشود .

Nowadays, isis (Islamic!!!! state of Iraq and Syria) like yazid, shows a cruel and wild presentation of Islam that is completely wrong, and they kill imam Hussein"s admirer and cut their heads off. 

امروزه نیز داعش همچون یزید چهره خشنی از اسلام نشان میدهد و پیروان و دوست داران امام حسین را میکشد و سر از تنشان جدا میکند.

امام حسین (ع) : فقیران و تهی دستان مومنان چهل سال زودتر از ثروتمندان وارد بهشت میشوند ، امام (ع) برای درک بیشتر این موضوع مثالی را هم بیان فرمودند : مانند دو کشتی که از گمرک می گذرند ، مامور وصول گمرک به آن دو کشتی نگاه میکند و یکی از آنها را پر از بار می بیند و دستور می دهد آنرا نگه دارید.

Is Hazrat Ali Asgar (AS) buried on the chest of Imam Hossein (AS) in the same grave?

 

In this regard, Martyr Qadhi Tabatabai (ra) says in the footnote of his book titled "An Investigation into the First Arba"ein of Imam Hussein (a.s)" as such: "This story is heard on the tongues of some people especially those who give lectures on the pulpits that when Imam Sajjad (a.s.) wanted to bury Ali Asghar  (a.s.), he placed him on the chest of the Chief of Martyrs, Imam Hussein (a.s). This allegation is unsubstantiated and has no proper chain of transmission.
In addition, this is problematic and objectionable according to jurisprudential law as well, because it has been stated in the etiquettes concerning the burial of a deceased person that the corpse should be laid on its right side so that the dead body"s face is in the direction of Qibla. He should not be laid in the grave with his chest towards the sky and toes towards the Qibla.
If it had been allowed as such, it could be assumed that Ali Asghar"s body was placed on the Imam"s chest. Of course, it can be said that Imam Sajjad, peace be upon him, may have buried Ali Asghar opposite to Imam Hussein"s chest with his face towards the Qibla. Such an assumption is allowed and supposable but there is no narration or proof to substantiate this point either. Perhaps, the reporter may have meant that Ali Asghar"s martyrdom was so difficult and unbearable for Imam Hussein, peace be upon him, that the incident burnt his holy heart.
It was as though Ali Asghar was buried on his father"s chest. Such an interpretation is figurative and has nothing to do with the concrete action. Hence, the famous saying is that which has been said by historiographers that:  "The martyrs of Karbala including Ali Asghar (a.s.) are buried beneath Imam Hussein"s feet.[1]

?Do you know that Imam husayn`s enemies didn`t let him and his family drink any water, even his 6-mounth-old son 
آیا می دانید که دشمنان امام حسین به او و خانواده اش اجازه ی نوشیدن ندادند؟ حتی به پسر 6 ماهه اش؟

Remember Imam husayn when drinking water, as his enemies didn`t let him and his family drink any water till killed them.
موقع نوشیدن آب امام حسین را یاد کنید زیرا دشمنانش به او و خانواده اش اجازه ی نوشیدن آب ندادند تا اینکه آنها را کشتند.

oh,God 
I can’t imagine that Imam Husayn’s child was only six-month-old when he was martyred!!
The question is for which reason?
خدایا! نمی توانم تصور کنم که بچه ی امام حسین وقتی که به شهادت رسیدند، فقط 6 ماه داشتند!! 
به چه دلیل؟؟

I wish you all were present in Ashuora and saw how I asked them for water for my infant ,but they refused to give.
ای کاش در روز عاشورا حضور داشتید و شاهد آن بودید که چگونه برای نوزادم از آنها طلب آب کردم ولی آنها از دادن آب امتناع کردند.

water is the right of all living creatures ,Isn`t it
So why did he martyr thirsty?
They killed Husayn as He was forbidden to drink water and He was thirsty.
او را درحالیکه آب را به رویش بستند و تشنه بود کشتند.

They killed Husayn as He was injured and his clothes had been stolen.
او را درحالیکه مجروح بود و لباسهایش را غارت کرده بودند کشتند.

They killed him like John the Baptist as his head was cut.
او را مانند یحیی درحالیکه سرش را از بدنش جدا کردند کشتند.

All the member of his family ,including women and children were captured .
زنان و کودکانش اسیر شدند.

They killed his 6_months old baby as he was thirsty.
کودک شش ماهه اش را درحالیکه تشنه بود کشتند.

How can`t I cry for this incident?
چگونه می توانم بر این مصیبت گریه نکنم؟

When is the International Hosseini infant gathering`s day?
روز همایش جهانی شیرخوارگان حسینی چه روزی است؟
?When is the global day of Ali Asghar
روز جهانی علی اصغر چه روزی است؟
 Ali al-Asghar ibn Husayn (Tenth of Rajab, 60 AH – Tenth of Muharram, 61 AH) was the youngest child of Husayn ibn Ali and  (the daughter of the chief of the Kinda Imra al-Qays tribe). Rubaab# had two children,  and  She and her two children accompanied Imaam to Karbala. The fact that Imaam took with him a newly born baby further demonstrates the that his intention was never to engage in any armed rebellion. At Karbala  was only six months old. He is honored by Muslims as the youngest martyr of the Battle of Karbala.

He brought the child into the battlefield. The enemy soldiers assumed that Imam Husain (a.s) was holding the Qur’an in his hand as a prelude to surrender. When Imam Husain (a.s) lifted the cloth, the soldiers gasped with surprise to see an infant. The infant smiled as if taunting the enemy in the face of adversity.

Walking up to  soldiers  said,
“”O People! If, in your opinion,  is guilty of any sin or crime, this innocent babe has done nothing to hurt any one of you. It does not even speak, and has not even uttered anything against you or your Amir at Damascus. He is dying of thirst. He had neither milk nor water for the last three days. Would you quench his thirst by a few drops of water? If you suspect that I demand water for myself in the name of the babe, then I will leave it here, if you want, and go easy and you may return it with his thirst quenched.”

Imam Husain (a.s) replied,
“I only seek water for the infant, whose condition and agony is before you. Since you fear that I may myself drink the water, I am placing this infant on the ground so that you may yourselves take the child and quench his thirst.”

Ashura and Imam Hussain





Imam Khomeini who was the founder of Islamic Republic of Iran had described Imam Hussain"s instruction in his speech:
“…They do not know that weeping for Imam Husayn (A) means perpetuation of his uprising and maintaining the fact that even a small number could stand up against a great empire. Imam Husayn?s decree is that: “Every day is an Ashura and each territory is Karbala! implies that his movement must be kept alive and active everywhere and at all times. This statement is our manual of action. Just as Imam Husayn (PBUH) stood up and said: “No!” to a great empire, his decrial must be repeated daily and these mourning sessions mean the perpetuation of the negation…”

Day of ashura- Ashura self-flagellation is forbidden in Islam

 

Self-flagellation is forbidden (Haram) in Islam. Great Shia scholars such as grand Ayatullah Khamenei who is the leader of Islamic Republic of Iran and Ayatullah Sistani, the Shia Leader in Iraq, have prohibited any self-mutilation such as self-flagellation with knives or chains (Tatbir) and even walking on fire. You can see their Fatwas (religious opinions) on tatbir.org

“Practicing Tatbir (i.e.self-flagellation) is one of the wrongdoings. I know that some people would say: “It was better for him not to mention Tatbir.” They would say: “Why do you bother with Tatbir? Some people do it, let them do!”. No! it’s not right to remain silent toward such a wrong action…

It is wrong that some people hold daggers and hit themselves on the head to bleed. What are they seeking?! How can this be an act of mourning?! Of course hitting on the head with one’s hands is a sign of mourning. You have seen it several times that when people face suffering, they hit on their chests and heads. This is a typical symbol of mourning. But where have you ever seen a person who is suffering from the loss of a dear one, hit on their head with a dagger and make it bleed?! How can this be an act of mourning?
Tatbir is a fabricated tradition. It is among the issues that does not belong to the religion and undoubtedly God is not also pleased with such a practice.
The more I thought about it, the more truly I realized I cannot overlook informing our dear people about Tatbir which is certainly an act of wrongdoing and a heresy. Do not practice it! I do not approve of it. If someone does something to pretend that they want to practice Tatbir, I will be truly dissatisfied with them. I am declaring this solemnly.”

-Imam Khamenei’s saying in 1994

The following questions are also replied by Grand Ayatullah Khamenei :

Question 1449: In commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (PBUH) on the tenth of Muharram, some people hit themselves with a machete, or walk bare-footed on fire. Such actions defame Shi‘ism and put it in a bad light, if not undermine it. They cause bodily and spiritual harms on these doing it as well. What is your opinion in this matter?
Answer: Any practice that causes bodily harm, or leads to defaming the faith, is haram(forbidden). Accordingly, the believers have to steer clear of it. There is no doubt that many of these practices besmirch the image of Ahlul Bayt’s (PBUH) School of Thought which is the worst damage and loss.

Question 1450: Is hitting oneself with swords halal (allowed) if it is done in secret? Or is your fatwa in this regard universal?

Answer: “In addition to the fact that it is not held in the common view as manifestations of mourning and grief and it has no precedent at the lifetime of the Imams (a.s.) and even after that and we have not received any tradition quoted from the Infallibles (a.s.) about any support for this act, beit privately or publicly, this practice would, at the present time, give others a bad image of our school of thought. Therefore, there is no way that it can be considered permissible.”

Of course hitting on the head with one’s hands is a sign of mourning. You have seen it several times that when people face suffering, they hit on their chests and heads. This is a typical symbol of mourning. But where have you ever seen a person who is suffering from the loss of a dear one, hit on their head with a dagger and make it bleed?! How can this be an act of mourning?
Tatbir is a fabricated tradition. It is among the issues that does not belong to the religion and undoubtedly God is not also pleased with such a practice.
The more I thought about it, the more truly I realized I cannot overlook informing our dear people about Tatbir which is certainly an act of wrongdoing and a heresy. Do not practice it! I do not approve of it. If someone does something to pretend that they want to practice Tatbir, I will be truly dissatisfied with them. I am declaring this solemnly.”

-Imam Khamenei’s saying in 1994

The following questions are also replied by Grand Ayatullah Khamenei :

Question 1449: In commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (PBUH) on the tenth of Muharram, some people hit themselves with a machete, or walk bare-footed on fire. Such actions defame Shi‘ism and put it in a bad light, if not undermine it. They cause bodily and spiritual harms on these doing it as well. What is your opinion in this matter?
Answer: Any practice that causes bodily harm, or leads to defaming the faith, is haram(forbidden). Accordingly, the believers have to steer clear of it. There is no doubt that many of these practices besmirch the image of Ahlul Bayt’s (PBUH) School of Thought which is the worst damage and loss.

Question 1450: Is hitting oneself with swords halal (allowed) if it is done in secret? Or is your fatwa in this regard universal?

Answer: “In addition to the fact that it is not held in the common view as manifestations of mourning and grief and it has no precedent at the lifetime of the Imams (a.s.) and even after that and we have not received any tradition quoted from the Infallibles (a.s.) about any support for this act, beit privately or publicly, this practice would, at the present time, give others a bad image of our school of thought. Therefore, there is no way that it can be considered permissible.”
