His grand father Hazrat Abutalib (A.S.) protected Islam by protecting Prophet Mohammad (SAWAW) when others were throwing stones at him and abusing him, he followed the divine order and sacrificed his strong position in his tribe and was among the first people to support the Prophet.
Then his father Hazrat Ali (A.S.) protected Islam by protecting Prophet Mohammed when others were asleep and the enemy attacked Prophet’s house. He followed the divine order and sacrificed his life for the protection of Islam and humanity.
What a legacy … and he stood by it by showing this world a greater sacrifice. Imam Husain not only sacrificed his life he also sacrificed his 72 family and friends. Even though he got all types of false offers he stood firm on his ethics and non-violence. He showed the real face of satan to the world and followed the divine order and removed the veil from the face of Yazeed-ibne-Maawia. Imam Husain showed us the path of a non violent way of opposing the wrong and fighting the corrupt and the terrorists.
In this month of Moharram May Allah help us in consoling ourselves from grief of the death and the insult inflicted on the family of Prophet. May this month teach us how to fight against the injustice by following the principles of self restraint and non violence showed to us by Prophet Mohammed (SAWAW), his progeny and his followers.
God Bless All
