MATAM KYUN KARTE
REASONING OF OUR MATAM )
Loveth not God, Open utterance of evil in speech, except by one who hath
been wronged, and God is the Hearer , the Knower.
remained and is still the topic of discussion . A lot has been
said in favor and against Matam. In this topic we will look at
Matam from new angle. Our discussion will be quite different from the
previous, we will not take up historical references as it has been done a
lot , our discussion will be in reference to the human conscience ! !
The article will be in two parts. The first part will be about the
justification and reasoning of Matam and in the second part Matam will be
The Real inherent of Karbala -- Imam-e- Zamana
- I :- " The Justification in the light of conscience
_ I :- Justification of Matam in the light of
Human Conscience !
If it is
asked that why Matam ( mourning ) is being done? The reply (whether in favor or against )will be that this is done for the Mazloomiat of Al
-e - Mohammad. The difference is that we the Shias take it as an act of
justification and the source of requital and reward where as
opponents of Matam take it as wrong and sinful act.
Now we look from the new angle , that Matam of Mazloom
(oppressed ) guarantee's the protection of the whole human society
---------------------------- Protects the entire humanity !!
But How --------- ?
Let us concentrate and
understand this issue from this point of view with sincerity .
According to the verse of Holy Quran given in the beginning of this
article the Mazloom ( oppressed ) has been given the right of open
proclamation for his Mazloomiat .
Does this right
* Justify the matam for mazloom ?
* Is the matam for mazloom is in according to the law
of nature ?
* Is the matam for Mazloom guarantees for the protection of
Let us with sincerity search for the answers to the above questions .
According to the teachings of Islam it is not permitted to backbite
or to talk about the misdeeds of any one openly. Islam has repeatedly
emphasized the betrayer of one's secrets or has urged to hide the
misdeeds of the people ( Pardah pushi ). God Himself is the great
Sattar-ul-Ayyub ( having a highest quality to hide the misdeeds of the
people ) . For reward to the deeds, God has appointed the day of judgment ,
where every bit of good or bad will be brought forward for reward or
punishment . But in
this world God has not given the right to any one to spread out or to talk
openly about the misdeeds of the people. God has greatly emphasized for
the self-respect of the Muslim . If anyone is disgraced in the society or
if ones respect is injured , then instead of coming to the right path ones
slips to the wrong path. No doubt if the crime is proved then the severe
punishments are kept in the Islamic laws in order to stop the crimes in the
of the fact that Islam emphasizes somuch on over looking and
hiding the people misdeeds , the oppression and the tyranny (Zulm )
is such unforgivable and severe crime that God has exempted it from
the common law of over looking and hiding of misdeeds of the people.
Islam has never encouraged to overlook or to hide the act of cruelty, and
has giving the right to mazloom to talk openly against the Zalem and his
act of cruelty so that the Zalem could not be able to hide himself in the peaceful
Hazrat Ali ( A.S.)
said that the government of infidelity ( kufr) could be beared
but the government of Zalem can never be beared .
Due to Zulm ''''''''''''''''''''''
rights are violated, the peaceful life of the
society is denied , the earth is coloured with undue blood, The beautifully populated
cities are ruined and desolated, and the earth with all its span squeezes
, The life is upset and the existence has to face disaster . That is
why Islam has given the right to the Mazloom to talk loudly and
openly against the Zalem and should attract the attention of the society ,
so that the society can stand against the cruelty, and by this way the
society could be protected against the disaster of cruelty.
If the Mazloom is weakend the Zalem will be more and more strengthened
and the society will fall into more calamities and miseries. The
agitation , out crying and the up roaring of Mazloom is the security for
the whole society against the tyrannies of Zalem.
If the society wants to
cut the arm of Zalem then it has to raise up the arm of Mazloom.
If by hard luck the
society is in the state of unconsciousness and the society is unable
to estimate for the heavy loss which tyranny could bring to it
OR, the ignorant and unconscious society due
to lack of awareness has sympathetic feeling for the Zalem in such a
critical state the responsibility of the Mazloom increases more and
he has to increase the severity of his demonstration to such a high
degree that he can awake the unconscious society so they are able to sense the real state of disaster
by keeping the
feeling of sympathy for the Zalem. It is just possible that for the
demonstration of Mazloomiat and to face the pro - Zalem society the Mazoom
has to give more sacrifices but it is the fact that every drop of blood
for this noble cause will bare the Zalem and will help to proceed forward
the Carvan of Mazloomiat.
This is natural that if someone wants to get the attention of
limited people he has not to work so hard , but if some one wants to get
the attention of wide spread society then he has to adopt the severe and extraordinary
way of demonstration so that no one could over look his call . As this
circle increases the severity of demonstration has to increased and if by
hard luck such elements are their in the society who , due to their
ignorance and non awareness from the facts produce hindrance to
reach the call of Mazloom to the all level of society , in such miserable
state the Mazloom has to adopt the highest degree of severity in his call
so that it can reach to all level of society by breaking all the hindrances
of its way.
law of nature is " To every action there is a reaction
the call of Mazloom will be depressed more ,
the more it will rise ;;;;!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God has given the open right to Mazloom for the demonstration of his
Mazloomiat . Now the way and the depth of severity for the
demonstration will be decided by situation
and the requirement of the society.
we do the Matam ???????????????????
MATAM KYUN KARTE HAIN ????
we come out on the roads and in the bazar for the demonstration of
Our Matam with hand to matam with chain , to matam on fire and what will be
the degree of it sseverity in the future ??? __________ according to the
law of nature is...........................
the reaction of mazloom "
As more and more cruelty
increases in the society and as the society goes under the influence
of zalem the reaction in the demonstration of mazloomiat also becomes
more and more severe.
The agitation of Mazloom has to be spread all over , in order to insure
the security of society from the cruel and misdeeds of the
Zalem so that the society may be able to differentiate between Zulem
and the Mazloom , between Haq and Bateel.
Some of the ignorant and unaware people say that to weep or to Mouran on
the death of some body is un-Islamic and then they link it to the expression and agitation of Mazloom, although
these are two quite different things. To Mouran on the death of
someone is quite different from the Matam ......which is :-
means of agitation against the cruelty of Zalim . "
Matam is nothing but the open and the forceful agitation against the
misdeeds of Zalim.
Our Matam is not on the
death of someone, Our Matam is for the martyrs
who never die, To think that Matam as Mouran on the death is the
limitation and the inferiority of thinking or due to the unawareness of
This is really a very sorrowful state that those who object on Matam
did never try to understand the aims and the Philosophy of
Matam is not as a Mouran
on death , but is a great source of agitation for the expression of
Mazloomiat against the Zalim.
Matam unveils the
mischief of Zalim
Matam is a mark of distinction between Zalim and Mazloom !
Matam is a source of protection for the society against
Matam is to show the sympathy to the Mazloom !
Matam is to
detest-ate and to curse the Zalim !
An other objection on Matam is ------ that God says in Holy
Quran " Don't perish or ruin yourself " and
then at their own they consider the Matam to be a perishment ! !
and try to
prove Matam against the teachings of Holy Quran.
Firstly this similarity is wrong, secondly can anyone prove from the history
of Matam which has been long spread over centuries of past that how many
people have perished by Matam ???
-------------------- NONE ! !
Every action depends on
its aim and intention, for which that act is being done. If matam
means .... to Perish , then lot many acts come under the definition
of perish , but they are never considered to be perishment or destruction
because such acts are performed for some noble aim though the acts itself
are destructive in nature, as an example .
If any part of the body starts mal- functioning and in order to save
the life operation become necessary then one permits that his body
may be cut with knife, this act is apparently very destructive , just
possible that during or after operation the patient may die, and if the
patient dies in such state , no one will consider it as suicide or destruction
because the God has given the human the right of protection of life and
how this protection could be achieved will depend on the situation and the
circumstances , if the situation demands that the body is to be cut with the
knife to achieve the noble aim of protection of life then every one
permits rather considered it necessary that body must be cut with knife,
if the patient dies during operation no one says that why the patient has put
himself to destruction and no one says that operation -- cutting of body
with knife ---- is against the Quran .
Blood is the necessity of human life. Some time this blood is required
to save the life of some person. The donation of blood for a needy person
is considered as highly noble act. If all of sudden during the donation of
blood the person donating blood dies no one will consider it as a
suicide because the aim of the person donating blood was not to suicide but
his aim was to safe the life of other person. Therefore the aim and the
goal will be considered and not the appetent situation which has by chance occurred
The fighter jumps into the fire and meets sure death and become Martyr
though he faces sure death but it is not the suicide, why ?
because he did so to achieve some noble aim. By putting himself into
danger he provides the safety and security to the society so his apparently
destructively act is considered as a noble act.
In all such situations one faces the destruction but the aim and the
goal while performing such acts is highly noble so such apparently destructive
acts are never considered to be destructive and the similarity to
the holy verse
don't put yourself to destruction " is never made here .
Now think with
open mind and alive conscience that is the person doing Matam has the aim to suicide
Or has he some noble
aim for his Matam ????
If he aimlessly
doing matam and has no aim for it , no doubt issue your ruling against
Matam , but if he has some great and noble aim for his Matam and unfortunately
you can not understand or do not want to understand that noble aim
then who is guilty ??? where does the fault lies ??????
Let us tell you that we .... the Shias ( the nation of Matam ) by using
the right given by Holy Quran to Mazloom to express his Mazloomiat , want
to display our severe agitation in shape of Matam in such effective and
unique way so that we can awake the conscience of the society
from deep sleep of ignorance and unawareness and by the force of Matam
we want to snatch the dark veil from the curl face of Zalim so
that he can not hide his ugly face in any noble
We see that a person going under operation has the aim to save his own
life, A person donating blood has the aim to save the life of some other
person , A fighter jumping into the fire has the aim to save some
particular race or country, all these aims are though noble but are
limited in nature but one taking part in the open agitation against Zalim
has the wide aim of protecting the whole human race against the cruelty.
By increasing the severity of his agitation by adapting the most effective
means of Matam has the aim to launch his protest as wide
as possible to awake the wide society and to relies the every member of
the society not to overlook the misdeeds of Zalim at any cost.
The great sacrifice of Karbala is not only a strong blow on the face of
Yazeed but is the blow on the whole Yazeediat till the last day of
The upholders of Hussainiyat will continue their protest and agitation
against Yazeed and the Yazeediat and the TIME itself
will decide the degree of severity and the means of their protest.
Today the increased severity of protest of Mazloom is the open sign
that conscienceless society ( the supporter of Zalim ) is trying her best
to suppress the message of Muzloom and is trying to hide the mischief's of
Zalim , with the result the whole society is falling in the dark cave of
Zulm and under the law of nature , and as a reaction the severity of protest is
also increasing, and this situation will continue till the
struggle of Zalim and Muzloom will reach to the highest point ( the
Zulm of Zalim will reach to peak and the reaction of Muzloom will also
reach to the highest point and that will be the point when Allah
will send his Last Hujjat ( The heir of Mustafah A.S. ) who will redress
to the grievances of Mazloom by taking revenge from Zalim and will purify
the whole earth from Zulm and will establish the peace, tranquility and
the just .
By viewing Assr-e-Ashoor ( the afternoon of the 10th Muhurram 61.
Hijri ) one can never think that such a suppressed Muzloom whose pieces
of body were spread on the burning sand of the desert of Karbala,
whom the hot particles of flying sand were acting as
house was looted,
Whose women and children were made prisoners ,
whose child of six month was cut by
All means of propagations were used
to whip him off from the history ,
how could it be possible
that the message of such a Mazloom could reach to the future races
of time . So the power of cruelty thought that Hussain (a.s) and his
message was totally abolished and obliterated but the Batil under estimated
the tremendous power of Haq. He did not know that the procession of
Mazloomiat event before the burial of Martyrs has resumed her journey
towards its noble and holy aim. Imam Hussain in his life has already
arranged this Caravan to achieve the Goal of his martyrdom , the curl
enemy was thinking that they were the winners and were taking few helpless
prisoners to their capital , but the Zalim was not aware of the fact
that they were not helpless prisoners but was a great caravan
arranged by the master of Martyrs to link the purified races of
future till to the last day , to the great scarification of Karbala.
Today all the Caravan of Mazloomiyat moving on earth are linked
to the carvan-e-Hussani of Asr-e-Ashoor.
We all now that river will keep flowing on its normal way if its flow is not hindered
but if any resistance is created in the flow of river by making any dam in
its way the force of water will increase and the level of water will rise
so the dam has to be raised more, as the water rises high its force
increases and level goes up and the dam has to be raised high and as the dam rises higher
strength of the dam becomes weaker and weaker. The time comes that due to
the potential of stopped water the dam breakes and then the water
spreads everywhere .
So don't ask us that why the agitation of Mazloom is spread every where
like an ocean ?? ?
The severity in the procession of agitation of Mazloom is the result of
failed dams which were made by the supporters of Zalim.
The dams of swords________ dams of wealth _________ dams of fatawa
__________ dams of allegations _________ But the fast
flow of the agitation of Mazloom has wiped off all these dams and is
spread all over like an ocean.
Who is Hussain ?
Hussain is not only the
lord of heaven but he is lord of this world as
History has only seen Hussain as a Mazloom of
Karbala , But many
people may not know that Hussain is the most richest man of the
Look ! ! through out the world everywhere Hussain has his home
, Where there is a house of Allah ( Masjed ) there is a house
of Hussain ( Hussainia )
A countless and numerous property is devoted on the name of Hussain
through out the world.
As property of Hussain
heaps of gold and silver are lying
in the world.
In every year millions of the people are fed at the Dastarkhan of Hussain.
The millions of rupees are spent to pay homage to Hussain.
So all those powers
working against Hussain and his mission are sincerely advised to pay
attention to such a great arrangement of almighty and should try to
read the wish of Allah who has made Hussain the most shining star of His
