the name of God the Beneficent the Merciful
-E-IMAM HUSSAIN A.S.
to the topic:-
Though it is said that Qatelan-e-Imam
Hussain were Muslim, then question arises that they belonged to which sect
of Islam, but in the light of historical facts they were having no concern with
To them Deen and Mazhab was just a funny and meaningless thing and they
never thought of Akherat and about its reward or punishment and they used
to make fun of this concept. History have recorded their comments about
the concept of Jaza-o-Saza by that we could reached to their actual
The main figure among the Qatelan-e-Hussain was Yazeed Ibn-e-Mawiyia who
inherited kufr and Nifaq from his forefathers. Abu Sufiyan the grand father of Yazeed who was the deadly enemy of Islam
and the Holy Prophet. He
tried his best to crush Islam by all possible
means but after the continuous struggle of about 20, years against Islam
when he badly failed and found no way to survive, he apparently accepted
Islam just to deceive the Muslims. He never accepted Islam by his heart,
On the battle of Yarmook when Muslims were
fighting against Romans and he was looking the
battle from a distance,
when the Romans get dominating position against Muslims he used to
" Oh, very good, the brave fighters of Romans
" and when the Muslims get
dominating position against the Romans he used to cry
" Oh, the great empire
of Romans is going to be destroyed". Abdullah Ibn-e-Zubair saw this
his own eyes and told his father about this and the negative feelings of Abusufiyan, on this, Zubair said, " God may curse him he will
give up Nifaq.
Are we not batter then Romans?
When the Usman become the third caliph , Abu Sufiayan went to him who was also from
Bani Ummiya, and said , " The Khelafat has reached to you, Play with it
as you like and with the help of Bani Ummiya firm your control on Khelafat,
and don't think about Yaoom-ul-Jaza I do not believe on it." From these
two historical facts we can well estimate the actual feelings of Abusufiyan about Islam.
Mawiyah, the true successor of Abu Sufiyan, what the position of
Islam was in his eyes, could be estimated from the below historical
Pt. 1, Page 154 , Asadullah Ghaaba
Pt.1, Page 379.
Hataat Hijashi, Jaria Bin Qadama and Ahnaaf these three people came
to Mawiyah , he
gave more money
to Jaria and Ahnaaf than Hataat,
on this Hataat complained that you gave more to Jaria and
Ahnaaf than me, Mawiyah replied that I have purchased their
Deen, so Hataat said please purchased my deen
Kamil al Tawareekh :-
From Basra Mugheera Bin
sent ten people along with his son to Mawiyah.
He gave them 30,000 Dirham as bribe . They expressed their pleasure
about the succession of Yazeed in front of Mawiyah, on their expression
Mawiyah asked from the son of Mugheera that for how much your father has purchased their deen,
The son of Mugheera replied, " On 30,000 Dirham."
from these two historical events one can easily estimate that what
of deen was to Mawiyah.
Status of Holy
Prophet in the eyes of Mawiyah.
Status and the respect of holy
prophet in the eyes of Mawiyah was not even that much which was in
the eyes of a common Man. This could be easily estimated from the below
Asadullah Ghaaba Pt-1, Page-115.
" Mawiyah was eager to see a man who was having very long life. He wanted
to know about the past . There was a man from
who was of about
360 years. Mawiyah asked him did you see Hasham, he said yes I saw him he
was very nice man with a very good personality, then Mawiyah asked about
Ummiyah, he replied yes I saw him also, he was short and blind man with
funny face. Then Mawyiah asked did you see MOHAMMAD . He was
surprised to listen the name of holy prophet from a Muslim in a such
ordinary manner, so he asked which Mohammad , do you mean the Holy Prophet
? Mawiyah replied yes, that man said, " Shame for you why you didn't
take his name with proper respect."
Nasa'h Kafiya Mohammad bin Aqeel
" Narrated by Zubair bin
Mutraf bin Mugheera with his father went to Mawiyah , on his returning
from Mawiyah he was very much grieved, I ( Zubair ) asked him that why he
is so much grieved .
Mutraf replied that I am coming from the most
malignant and filthy man. I was astonished to listen, I asked what
happened? He replied I was alone with Mawyiah, I requested him that you
should be kind to Bani Hasham as they are no more threat for
you. On this he jumped and said very sorry, See Abu Baker, he did the Khilafat
in a very nice way but when when he died no one remembered him, So the Umar
died and his name also died with him, this Abu
Kabasa ( This was
by which the Kuffar-e-Macca used to call the Holy Prophet ) his name is taken
five time daily in the Azzan, so what could I hope that my name will
be remembered, so with my death my name will also die. "
: ( First
So from the above historical facts imagine about Yazeed who was the son
and the grand son of Mawiyah and Abu Sufiyan.
One can also formed an idea about Yazeed
from his below poetry :-
" Oh ! Sorrow, if my fore fathers of Badr would have been alive
today they would have been so glad to see today's event. "
" There was no massage or Wahi from Gad but it was just a deceiving
act of Bani Hashem to get the power. "
" May I not be true descanter of my fore fathers if I did not take
the revenge from the generation of Mohammad "
" We have taken the revenge of Badr and Ohad "
" If my fore fathers
were alive they would have been very glad and would have prayed, that my hand would not be
Abn-e-Zeyaad : ( The second character )
He was the second person responsible for Qatl-e-Imam Hussain
About him Yazeed in his poetry says :
Oh serve me a bowl of wine which should fully bloom my whole body,
and then also serve a same bowl to Abn-e-Ziyaad as well who is my sincere
honest and is a great helping hand to me.
( The third character )
was third person responsible for Qatl-e-Imam Hussain A.S.
Please guess him
by his poetry below which he uttered when he was detailed to fight with
Imam Hussain A.S. :
God I am in between to important issues "
" Should I
loose the Ra'ay which is my dream or I get a great sin of
pleasure of this world is just a cash and no one could sell the cash for
People say that there is hell if it is true I will do repentance from this
sin with in two years. "
" If what the
people say about Hell and Heaven proved false, then we are the winner in
all respect. "
So from these three persons who were directly involved in Qatl-e- Imam
Hussian one could easily guess that what the Mazhab of
Qatalan-e-Imam Hussain A.S. was ? Their Mazhab was just a gold and money
and nothing else.
To consider them Muslim
is as to put a the black spot on
the glowing face of Islam. In fact they were neither Shia nor Sunni but still some
people insist and misguide the innocent people by saying that Qatlain Imam
Hussain were Shia so with the evidences of history we will see that if they are considered to be Muslims then with which sect of Islam
they could stand.
will consider this historical fact in the next sub topic of this article.
