The Historical Evidences
Mazhab of Qatelan-e-Hussain
Hazrat Muslim bin Aqeel
the people of Kufa who were very much angry with the Government of Yazeed welcomed the arrival of Hazrat Muslim in Kufa. The Governor of Kufa
Nu'maan bin Basher was peaceful man so he did not resist to the
presence of Hazrat Muslim. The spies of Yazeed,
Abdullah Bin Muslim Bin Sa'eed Hizri,
Haleef Bin Umaiyya and
Umer Ibn-e-Sa'ad informed him that Muslim
bin Aqeel is in Kufa and is taking the Beyyat on behalf of Imam Hussain, if you want to stop the fall of Kufa into the hands of Muslim you
must appoint some strong governor over here who could prevent the
fall of Kufa.
the receipt of this information Yazeed wrote a letter to Ibn-e-Ziyyad whose
wordings are as follow
" My Shias living in
Kufa have informed me that Muslim bin Aqeel is going to upset the unity of
Muslim so you must go to Kufa immediately to control the Muslim bin Aqeel
and punish him. "
Tibri- Vol-6, Page 199
Everyone knows that who was Umar
Ibn-e-Sa'ad to whom Yazeed is calling his Shia and to him Yazeed was
true Caliph of Islam. Umer Ibn-e-Saad was the same man who was the supreme
commander of the forces of Yazeed in Karbala. He was not among those people
who were doing Bayyat of Hazrat Muslim bin Aqeel in Kufa so he reported to
Yazeed to control the situation. To him the Yazeed was true caliph of Isalm
and in the light of two Sunni Scholars (in our Part-II of this article) to
which sect of Islam Yazeed is considered as a true caliph of Islam. Now it
is very easy to find out the Islamic sect of Umar Ibn-e-Saad.
While on the way from
Makkah to Kufa Imam Hussain A.S. was stopped by
Hur-e-Rehai. There came
a messenger of Ibn-e-Ziyyad with an order that Imam Hussain must be
forced to reside in such a place where there may not be a water or tree etc
near by. One of Imam Hussain's companion
Abu al-Shashah recognized the messenger and said are you Malik bin Naseer ? The messenger replied yes I am
the same, on this Imam's companion said, God may cruse you, what a bad message
you have brought ! The messenger Malik bin Naseer replied that I have obeyed
my Imam ( Yazeed ) on this Abu
al-Shashah said no doubt he is your such Imam
who calls you to Jahannum. Now its very easy to find out from this
conversation that to whom Yazeed was true caliph and Imam and to whom Yazeed
was such Imam who calls the people to Jahannum. Malik Bin Naseer
who considers Yazeed as true Imam (as the two Sunni Scholars considered see
the ref. in the 2nd. part of this article ) was the same man who on the day
of Ashoor hit the head of Imam Hussain with sword.
Tibri, V-6, P-232,
On the 7th. of Muhurram, Ibn-e-Ziyyad messanger came with his written order
as follow :
" Stop the water for
Hussain and for all his companions and do not let them to get a drop of
water as the water was stopped for Zaki,Taki Imam Usman bin Affwan.
Now for the God sake think that to which sect of Islam Usman
Bin Affwan is Zaki Taki and True Imam. Could a man calling Usman bin Affwan Taki and Zaki Imam
be Shia ??
On the 9th. of Muhurram, Umer Ibn-e-Sa'ad ordered his forces to
attack on Hussani Force. Imam Hussain asked Hazrat Abbas A.S to go and ask them
about their attention. Hazrat Abbas with 20 people came forward to the
advancing force and asked them to stop where ever you are, and then enquire about
their attention, They replied that we got order from our Ameer to attack of
Hussani force. Hazrat Abbas told them to be here and let me go back to
convey your attention to Imam Hussain. Rest of people who came with Hazrat
Abbas remained standing over there. ............
Hazrat Habib ( a companion of Imam
Hussain and Sahabi of Holy Prophet ) got the chance to speak to them so he
got forward and addressed them " How bad people you are, who are going
to fight against the Aaley Mustafah. Don't you know that they are the Zuriyyat
of Holy Prophet and they are the true worshipper of Allah they worship Allah
at the midnight when all other people sleep. At this
Ghazrah bin Qais
............. (a man from Yazeed force ) said that Habib you always
speak of your worshipping, then
Zuheir bin Qein ...... ................. came
forward and said Ya Ghazrah there is no doubt that Habib is a pious man,
When Ghazrah heard , Zuheir voice he turned to Zuheir and said,
.................. Ya Zuheir ! how you are here? You were not Shia of
Ahley Bait but you were Usmani, on this
................ that no doubt I was Usmani but on the way to Kufa I met
Imam HussainA.S and I came to know the circumstances and the facts then I
decided to help Imam Hussain and joined the Ansaron-e- Imam Hussain.
So from the above
conversation of Zuheir Qein
and Ghazrah bin Qais it
become very clear that Zuheir bin Qein was first Usmani therefore Ghazrah
was astonished to see him among the Ansaron-e-Hussain because as a Usmani he
should be in the favor of Yazeed and Ibne Ziyyad, but Zuheir bin Qein
cleared that no doubt first I was Usmani but now he is Hussani, so it become
very clear that Qatalan-e-Hussain were Usmani ul Maslak. ( because in
the evidence No 3. above, we saw that Ibn-e-Ziyyad was calling Usman Zaki,
Taki Imam. ) Who considered Usman Zakki and Takki ........ Shia or Sunni ????
On the day of Ashoora ( 10 of Muharram ) when the fight was going on between
Hussani and Yazeedi forces, one man named
Yazeed bin Muaqel came out
and he shouted to Burar Hamdani
( a companion of Imam Hussain ) and said ........... how Allah has put
you people in a bad condition as you are all going to be murdered.
Burar Hamdani replied
............... Allah has done best with us and gifted us with Shahadat.
bin Muaqel said ................... Ya Burar did you
remember once we were going to Bani Luzan at that time you were saying that
Usman was Zalim and he did wrong with himself. Mawiyah was astray and errant
the true Imam is only Ali. ................
Burar said yes I said so and
even today I say the same.
Yazeed bin Muaqel said,
.................. you are wrong and errant.
Burar said ok let us do the
Mubahelah on this issue and let us pray to Allah that among us the one who
is wrong should be killed by the one who is right .................. Both of
them agreed for Mubahelah and the fight started first
Yazeed bin Muaqil attacked on
Burair but he failed to harm Burar then
Burar attack on Yazeed bin
Muaqel and his head was cut by the sword of Burar. This event has clearly
decided what is wrong and what is right and who is
Mawiyahee and who is
After the Shahadat of Hazrat Burair ( Companion of Imam Hussain ) when his
Qatel Ka'ab bin Jaber reached home his sister Nawar Binte Jaber curse him and
said you took part in the Qatal of the son of Hazrat Fatemah Zahra (A.S.)
and committed the Qatal of Syed-ul-Qura Burair, on this he replied as below :
' Ask the people, when
Hussain was killed when the spears were straightened how a beautiful job I
did , I killed those whose Mazhab was different from mine.
............... some one should give my message to Abn-e-Ziyyad that I
am the true follower of Kalifah ( Yazeed ) '
( Tebri V-6
So as per his own saying his Mazhab was quite different then that of
Imam-e-Hussain and his companions and then he clarifies that he accept the
Kilafat of Yazeed and in the beginning of the article it was clearly decided
that who admit the Kilafat of Yazeed .
When Hazrat Naf'ee bin Bilal Al-Begli
came out in the battle field he was loudly reciting the verse
" Ana Jamali , Ana Ala Deen-e-Ali "
that I am Jamali and I am on the Deen of Hazrat Ali, an
other man Mazahim bin Hares came out from the force of Ibn-e-Ziyyad with
the saying "
Ana Ala Deen-e-Usman " on this Hazrat Nafey replied that
" Anta Ala Deen-e-Shatan "
Hazrat Naf'ee attacked and killed him.
Is any thing left to decide that what was the Mazhab of Qatelan-e-Hussain
when they themselves were openly admitting that they are Usmani and Sufiyani.
On the day of Ashura Umer bin AlHaj from the force of Umer abn-e-Sa'ad
shouted " Oh ahlay Kufa !
don't be in doubt to kill these people who have gone out from the Mazhab and
are opposing the Imam ( Yazeed ) "
On this Imam Hussain himself replied, " Ya Umer bin Al hajj. you are
preparing the people to fight against us , did we left the Mazhab and you
are on the Mazhab, let this life be finished then you will come to know
that who was on the Mazhab and has gone out of Mazhab.
Which was that Mazhab in which Yazeed is Imam ? from that (according to
Al-Hajj) Imam Hussain and has companions had gone out ? Please read again
the beginning of the article specially the comments of Allam Sayouti. In
which Mazhab Yazeed is confessed as the true Caliph and Imam ?
After the Shahadat of
Imam Hussain when Binat-e-Raool were brought in Kufa as a prisoners,
Ibn-e-Zayyad ordered all the people to gathered, and he made a speech in
which he said
I thank to Allah who has gifted the success to Ahlay Haq and helped the true
Imam Yazeed bin Maweyah and killed Hussain along with all his Shias. "
According to Ibn-e-Ziyyad all those who were killed with Imam Hussain were
his Shia then what was the Mazhab of Ibney Ziyyad , again Allamah Sayouti
will help us to tell the Mazhab of all those including Ibnay Ziyyad to whom Yazeed
was true Imam. (Tibri P-263 )
Kufa when the prisoners of Al-e-Mohammad reached in Damascus (
Syria ) Zahar
bin Qais or Shimar Zil Joshen made a long speech in Darbar-e-Yazeed in which
he said , " Oh, be happy Ya
Amir Yazeed, Hussain and 18 people from his family and 60 people from his
Shias came up to fight against us and they refused to accept the order of
Ibn-e-Ziyyad so we attached upon them and killed all of them in a very short
time " (
Tabri-264, Al-Akhbar P-257, Hayat-ul-Haway V-1, P-53 )
From the evidence it became very clear that those who accepted Shahadat along
with Imam Hussain were either from his family ( Bani Hasham ) or his Shias
and all other were some thing quite different from Shia, what they were??? ask
the history or Allamah Sayouti !
After the whole event of
Karbala Ibney Ziyyad sent a messenger Abdul Malik Bin Abi Hares to Madinah
with a news to informed the people of Madinah that they have killed Hussain
and his Shias, Abdul Malik says that I have never hard such a great cry as
was hard from the houses of Bani Hashem when the news of Sahadat of Imam Hussain
reached in Madinah. on this event the governor of Madinah Umar bin Sa'eed
joyfully said , " This cry and matam of Bani Hashem is the revenge of cry on
the event of Qatal-e-Usman. "
So from the above evidences it
became very clear that the Qatalan-e- Imam Hussain A.S. were the true
follower of Usman and Yazeed and in their Mazhab both of them were the true
Imam and Caliph. Now justify that to accept Usman , Mawiyah and Yazeed as a
true Imam and Cliph of Islam is Shia Belief. or Sunni ?
Now in the next and the last part of the article we will discuss the Mazhab
of the common masses of Kufa and the position of Shia Jamat in Kufa.
