In the name of God the Beneficent the Merciful
THE SUB-TOPIC ----- GENERAL INTRODUCTION.
THE CENTRAL THEME OF THE ARTICLE IS THAT EVERY MUSLIM FROM PRESENT AND PAST KNOWS WELL THAT HAZRAT ALI (A.S.) SYEDA ZAHRA (A.S.) AND HASNAIN (A.S ) WERE THE MOST CLOSEST (IN EVERY RESPECT ) TO HOLY PROPHET. BUT AFTER THE HOLY PROPHET PASSED AWAY FROM THIS WORLD ,THE MAJORITY OF THE UMMAH REACTED TERRIBLY AGAINST THEM SO MUCH THAT THEY WERE SLAUGHTERED , THEIR HOUSES WERE BURNT, WHY ALL THIS HAPPENED ?????
" Say ! I do not ask for any reward but to keep highest degree of attachment and love (mowaddet) with my Qurbha ( close blood relatives) .
Hazret Imam Jafar-e-Sadeq (A.S) said," Our grand father (the Holy Prophet) P.B.U.H, ordered the Ummah (followers) to keep highest degree of love and attachment with us, but if suppose the Holy Prophet had ordered the Ummah to keep enmity with his Qurbha, by God this Ummah could not have more enmity with us as they showed after the order of mowaddet. "
To create the doubts in the specification of Qurbha and to hide the cruel and unjustified actions of some of the self made big personalities , people put forward the unnecessary discussions in the specification of Qurbha of Holy Prophet.
Let us leave it for the time being that Ali (A.S) the Hasnain (A.S) or the other A-Eima (A.S) are in the Qurbha of Holy Prophet, but no sensible being can question that, Is Hazret Zahra be in the Qurbha of Holy Prophet ? The relation of father (Holy Prophet ) and the daughter ( Fatema Zahra ) are above all discussions.
Hazret Zahra (A.S) without doubt is in the Qurbha of Holy Prophet, She is the central character of Ayah-e- Tetheer, She is the main character of Ayah-e- Mubahela , About her Holy Prophet said that Fatema is part of my body, anyone who made her angry is as if he made me angry, whenever Holy Prophet used to go to journey she was the last one the Holy Prophet used to see off and upon returning from the journey she was the first of all the Holy Prophet used to see. Whenever Hazret Zahra used to come to Holy Prophet , the Holy Prophet used to stand up from his place , used to kiss her forehead and used to make her sit on his own place. After the revelation of Ayah -e- Tatheer for six months continuously the Holy Prophet used to come to the door of Hazret Zahra and used to say " Asalam-o-Alekum Ya Ahlall- Bait -e- Nabuwa "
Now in spite of all this ,we see that after the death of Holy Prophet the first target of Muslim Governing party is Hazret Zahra ! After the death of Holy Prophet in a very short tenure of her life (may be of 70 or 90 days) she came across such terrible events and happenings which are undeniable facts of the Muslim history.
In spite of the Holy Prophet sayings a lot about his holy race how the people after the death of Holy Prophet reacted ,---- in a most terrible and awful way. The most sorrowful fact is that people fit the principles on the frame of their popular personalities and when the principles do not fit properly then they cut the corners of the principles although as a matter of fact the personalities should be judged on the frames of principles, so much so that if from any Ayah of holy Quran or from the Holy Hadees the parameters of any popular personality are de-shaped then the Ayah or the Hadees goes under taweel and the historic facts are denied but the personality is defended by all means.
After the sorrowful death of Holy Prophet, ISLAM, The real Islam came across a great misfortune (such a great misfortune which was, or never will be seen in the history of mankind ) those people who could never show a bit of bravery in the great battles of Islam like Badr, Uhad , Khandak or Khyber, in a Badr remain unknown, in a uhad himself confess the running away from the battle field, in the khandak the history says that position was such as birds are sitting on their heads, in Khyber many time retreated by throwing the flag of Islam , and in Hudaibia openly doubted the Prophet hood of Holy Prophet, But all of sudden after the death of Holy Prophet these people became the most brave and the highest personalities of mankind. This over the night great change is really not understandable !!! All of sudden the race of jigar khoora (who ate the lever of Hazret Hamza ) became most respectable in Islam and the holy race of the Prophet were put on troubles. Those who were expelled out from the city of Madina by Holy Prophet himself were brought back with great honour and respect and the Holy Qurbha of Prophet were forced to leave the city of Medina --- the city of their grandfather . The daughter of Holy Prophet who when came in Mubahela the non-Muslim Christians admitted her greatness and truth ness , when the same daughter of Holy Prophet just after the death of her great father came in mosque of her father for the claim of holding of Fedak was declared false by the ummah of her father. The door of the house of Hazret Zahra where the Holy Prophet used to come for salaam (as referred before) was put on fire by the ummah. Does history tell us anywhere whether after the death of Holy Prophet first day or second day or third day or even later the people of Madina or the outside came to the house of Hazret Zahra for condolence on the demise of her great father as she was the only the nearest and closest relative of Holy Prophet on the earth. But in fact very sorry to say that we see entirely different scene on the door of Zahra, in place of condolence people brought fire to burn the house !!!!!! Is this was the Ajar -e- Risalay which was demanded by Holy Prophet. Very strange reward was given to the holy race of Prophet. If anyone (although very few) who stood with these holy people in such a critical time to prove their faithfulness to Holy Prophet were declared the opponents of Islam and till to this date are called kaffer and Rafizi, all those who forgot all the ties with the Holy Prophet and got in the steam of power are referred as real muslims.
How strange it is ! that Holy Prophet (having followers in millions at the time of his death) was buried in the presence of very few people hardly ten person or so. Perhaps the people were busy in some important job , more important than to take part in the burial of their Prophet. After about seventy days after the death of Holy Prophet an other a body ( Janaza) was taken from the house of Holy Prophet in the mid night with the presence of very few people and was buried in the darkness of night , the sign of grave was also whipped off_----- this was the Holy Janaza of Hazret Zahra . ( if the city of Madina was full of faithful followers and lovers of Holy Prophet than why such sorrowful scenes were seen )
______ With the death of Holy Prophet, the extreme troubles started for the race of Holy Prophet and Hazret Zahra was the first target of these troubles, Then in the mosque of Kufa the head of hazret Ali while praying was hit with a the sword which resulted in his sorrowful death as well. Then the Hassan was subjected to terrible poison which cut his lever into pieces and while his holy body was taken to graveyard it was attacked with arrows by the ummah ------- and then Hussain ---- in Karbala ---- all most every member of the holy race even the child of six month were cut in to pieces. ( All these events were not committed by non Muslims but by those who claimed to be the follower of Holy Prophet ---- after all which type of the followers were they? ) and after the sorrowful event of Karbala , the life behind the bars and poisoned death became the fate for the remaining generation of Holy Prophet.
Being a Muslim is it not our religious and the moral duty to think and to search the cause of these sorrowful events ??????
