the name of God the Beneficent the Merciful
IS ANYONE TO HELP ?)
we will see what sacrifice means ?
In sacrifice a person
gives his life for a great noble aim and this aim must be higher
then his life. Than he become martyr if the life is ended aimlessly or
not for a noble aim than it is suicide . It is the aim and the
goal which decides that whether it is sacrifice or suicide. Higher the aim
, higher will be the level of sacrifice.
The life of infallible (Masoom) is just according to the will of
God. How great an aim will it be, for which the life of
Masoom is being sacrificed. The master of martyrs Hazrat Imam Hussain
left the holy city of Madina with a great and noble aim. While leaving
Madina he said,
am leaving Madina not to create any disturbance or lawlessness, but for
the correction and the betterment of the Ummah of my grand - father (Holy
Prophet). I want good deeds are to be enforced and bad deeds to
be stopped , I am following the way of my father (Hazrat Ali
) and grand father (Holy Prophet ) "
The correction of Ummah was the main aim of Hazrat Imam Hussain. He
wanted to pull away the veil from hypocrisy and dexterity which had
defaced the beautiful face of Islam for the past many
years. To achieve this great aim , Imam Hussain selected the
open field of Karbala for his great sacrifice ! ! !!
On the day of Ashura at the last moment of his struggle Imam Hussain gave
the call for help. He loudly said " Is there anyone to help
" Halminnaserin, But whom did he call
for help ? Because by that time
all of his friends , companions and relatives were martyred . Then
whom did he call ? From whom did he want help?
The last call of Imam Hussain shows that Imam needs Helpers ( Ansar).
No doubt on the basis of Azzadari we are Azzadar , but ,
we Ansar also ?
This is a question which every azadar must ask himself ! ! !
Because the call of Imam Hussain is still roaring even today. Imam wants
Azzadari is that holy
path through which we can reach to the aim of Imam Hussain . Because
only Azadar could become Ansar. No doubt that history is unable to
reproduce Ansarran -e- Karbala ( Companions of Imam In Karbala ) because
Imam Hussain himself said, " By God no one had batter companions
No doubt that the Holy
Prophet and the other A- Emma (A.S) had a lot of companions but there is
a basic difference between the companions of Imam Hussain and the companions
of the Holy Prophet and the other A-Emma (A.S). No doubt the Holy
Prophet and other A- Emma (A.S) had a very faithful followers and
companions ,but all of them were not of same status of faithfulness and
bravery. There were such those used to leave the Holy Prophet and used to
away from the battlefield. Some of them were who used to make the false excuses
for not to go in the war by saying that their houses were not safe,
In the companions of Hazrat
Ali there were such whom when he used to call for war they used
the hot and cold weather as an excuse. There were such people around Imam
Hassan who used to object on his actions. BUT,
The companions of Imam
Hussain -- Totally different from all ,
Imam Husain (A.S)
in the night of Ashura said that tomorrow whoever will be here will die
so I let you go away from here , save yourself, I permit you to leave
this place, but in reply they said " O ' the son of prophet, how
many times are we to die ?" and when Imam replied that only once, they said that if we are to die
seventy times and our bodies are burnt even then we will not leave you .
No doubt , the history
from Adam to the last day of existence is unable to produce such
companions who can compete to the
Ansarran-e-Hussani. The status of their faithfulness is much
higher than the level of all attainable possibilities.
But see the greatness of Imam Hussain (A.S) that in his last call he
asked for Ansar and let the way open to the future generations to get
in the holy caravan of Ansarran-e- Karbala. Imam Hussain did not let any
one who has the capability be deprive of this holy status.
It is the nature of
human, that when anyone gets some blessing
he wishes that it may reach his forth coming generations . When Hazrat
Ibraheem (A.S) got the status of Imammat which was a great
blessing of God , he at once asked it for his generation. Imam Hussain who
was the Imam of all purified (Momen) races till the day of judgment
saw the high status of his Ansar in view of Allah so he wanted this
great blessing should reach all the forth coming Momen races. Therefore, he asked for
in his last call on the day of Ashura.
This was the kindness of Imam (a.s) that he did not forget his followers
in such a difficult and critical time ( Asr-e-Ashur ) and how
cruse and thanklessness will be if we in such a comfortable time forget
and overlook the aim of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and deprive ourselves
from that high blessing which Imam (a.s.) wanted for each of his
Azadar ! ! !
He is the most lucky one who links himself to the pious and pure caravan
of Ansar -e-Hussain. But this caravan has some terms and
conditions and special parameters which are to be fulfilled.
Imam Hussain collected the pearls in the desert of Karbala. Imam
Hussain made it clear from his character that he do not want the
poor-spirited majority , may be few but pure and shining like
stars. When Imam Hussain was forlorn , and though wanted people for help , in that difficult time he did not let an ineligible
people to get in his pure and pious caravan and now how will he let any characterless
one to get in the caravan of his shining
There is a strong watch of character around the Caravan-e-Hussani
and on the basis of strong character the Ansar-e-Hussani
attainted such high levels of courage and dignity that
even death was surprised and astonished.
an eye see ,that some sister brought a coffin for his brother
an old mother make ready his young son for death
a mother let her infant to go for the journey of death ------------
an old father colour his beard with the blood of his infant
the desert of Karbala death was shivering but the Ansarran -e-
Hussani were fortitude and firm in their aim.
If really we wanted ourselves to be in the Carvan-e-Hussaini then
everyone of us has to review his character and question himself
that am I able to join with Ansarran-e-Hussain ?
For old people, the character of Habib , Muslim and Zubair ,
For young, the character of Hazrat Abbas , Ali Akbar and Qasim ,
For Children , the character of Awn and Mohammad ,
For women , the character of Hazrat Zainab
------------- is the glowing
flambeau for guidance.
Imam Hussain (A.S.) has
put on the shining flambeau on every corner of life , whose glow will never dim till the day of judgment.
the third part of the article we will put forward our call for help (
Estaghasa ) to Imam Hussain.
