    Congratulations to all Momineen and Mominaat

    Congratulations on the birth anniversary of Imam Hussain (as) and Imam Zain ul Abiddin (as).

    May Allah (swt) grant us his blessings to follow along the path of these holy personalities, the pure progeny of the holy prophet (pbuh), the path which leads to the sunnah of our holy messenger (pbuh).

    Congratulations also on the birth anniversary of Hazrat Abbas, the standard bearer of Karbala, who taught us that Haq will always overcome batil, by the Order of the Almighty (swt).

    Congraz to all Muslims.

    Ain't new ta this....HOMEINVASION('93)


      kher mubarak to momineen.
      "Verily, I am leaving behind two precious things among you: the Book of God and my kindred, my household..(Sahi Muslim, Hadith Thaqalayn is narrated by thirty plus Companions of the Prophet)


        In the Name of Allah, The Compassionate, The Merciful.

        Peace and Blessings be on our Master Muhammad, his progeny, and his chosen companions and all of Allah’s messengers.

        God says in his glorious book:
        “Oh members of the family (the prophet’s family), God only seeks to cleanse you of all impurities to make you pure and immaculate.” (S33, vs33).

        In this month we have many occasions and anniversaries to celebrate. On the third of this month, Imam Hussein bin Ali (a.s) was born, on the fourth, Abulfadl Al-Abbass was born, on the fifth, the Imam Ali bin Al Husein Zain Al-Abidin (a.s.) and on the fifteenth, the birth of Imam Al-Mahdi (a.s.).

        When we remember the Ahl Al-Bait(a.s) we think of their spirituality and their faithfulness to God and His servants as well as their sacrifice for the whole of Islam and for all Muslims.

        When we remember Imam Al Husein (a.s.) we remember how happy the Messenger was, as he was when Imam Husain's brother Imam Hasan was born. The Messenger was not just happy because he had two new grandsons but because he knew that they were going to play a great role in serving Islam, sacrificing everything for it and that they would be faithful to Islam as no one was after the Prophet (P) and the Imam Ali (a.s.), who gave himself completely to God leaving nothing for himself.

        The Qur’an had this to say about the Imam Ali (a.s.):

        “He is one among men who gave himself entirely to please God. God is kind towards his servants”.

        The Qur’an had this to say when Ali (a.s.) slept in the messenger’s bed in his place during the night of the emigration to Medina.

        Imam Hasan (a.s) and Imam Husein (a.s)

        The Messenger used to hug the two Imams and carry them on his back giving them special care and attention. He used to speak about them to the Muslims and say that:

        “They are the masters of the youth in heaven”.

        And that:

        “Hasan and Husein are Imams whether they decide to fight, revolt or make peace”

        The two young Imams lived with their mother, Fatima (Al Zahra) (a.s.) the infallible lady who was pure in heart, mind, body and actions. She is also the leader of all women in heaven and all women in the universe. They also lived with their father the Imam Ali (a.s.) with all his spiritual purity and faithfulness towards God before they had to face their toughest challenges on their own.

        Imam Hassan (a.s.) had to face a very tough situation that forced him to make peace with his enemy in order to safeguard the interests of the Muslims while Imam Hussein (a.s.) was martyred because he refused to capitulate and abandon the cause of the message.

        Imam Hussein (a.s.) became a symbol of the message and of the struggle for the cause of Islam as well as all spiritual and moral values. So much so that after nearly fourteen centuries we still feel that he is living with us with all the values he represents and he still inspires us to revolt against all arrogant and unjust people. He has remained an example to follow enjoining good and denouncing evil at all levels.

        Abbas bin Ali(a.s)

        When we think of Imam Husein (a.s.) we also think of his brother Abbas bin Ali who considered Husein (a.s.) as his Imam before being his brother and this was what he said after they cut off his right hand before going on to fight with his left hand -that he was fighting for his Imam and not his brother.

        Abbas makes us feel that the Islamic religion is our responsibility which we should protect against all those who seek to harm or undermine it. We should also protect the Islamic leaders who call people to God and fight for his cause. It’s also natural that fighting for religion means fighting for Muslims as Islam is represented by the Muslim nation and they both give strength to one another.

        This is the lesson Abbas gave us for he isn’t merely a hero that we are proud of and his Islamic heroism is greater than his physical heroism. To be a true hero means to believe in a principle and to have the will to sacrifice for it, while physical heroism is merely putting the spiritual one into practice.


          Imam Ali bin Husein (a.s)

          When we remember the Imam Ali bin Husein Zain al-Abideen (a.s) we remember how he was with his father in Karbala and witnessed all its tragedies. Then he was with the women when they were imprisoned, sent to Ibn Zeeyad and then to Yazid whom he confronted courageously and firmly. Its as if Allah The Most Exalted wanted this tree to stay firmly rooted in the cause of Islam. The Imam happened to be sick and did not take part in the battle.

          The Imam kept the memory of Karbala alive in peoples’ minds by speaking often about it and this practice later developed into annual commemorations of this sad event.

          He then focused on the Muslim community, teaching them all the doctrinal, spiritual, moral and legal aspects of Islam. If we study his legacy we find that he was the Imam of Islamic culture and that many of those who are considered to be pioneers of Islamic culture at the time were among his students.

          He also established the Islamic method of invocation and when we read any of his invocations we notice that they are full of Islamic notions regarding the oneness of God, the prophethood, or the hereafter. It’s also full of moral values that raise man to a higher level of humanity. For example he says:

          “May the peace of God be on Mohammad and on his family, crush my desire for all that is unlawful …and prevent me from harming any Muslim or believer.”

          He is teaching us that we have to ask for God’s help to prevent us following our evil instincts that encourage us to harm any Muslim whether in our home or in our neighborhood. He also teaches us that those who gain social or political status should not feel superior to others. He says:

          “Oh God don’t raise me to a high rank among people unless you make me feel inside me that I have gone down in rank to an equal degree.”

          When the Imam used to talk about living a long life (and all of us would like to live a long life) he says that this long life should be spent obeying God and not in sin. Moreover he used to ask God to make him think in an Islamic way and to judge others by Islamic standards whereas we tend, as a result of bad social education, to consider rich people as VIP’s and the poor as inferior beings.

          The Imam has left us a spiritual, moral, social and political school. In his invocations, if you read them with an open mind and heart, you will become a faithful and dedicated Muslim. Even his crying is a sign of how much he worshipped God and loved Him.

          These are our Imams and this is the Islam that is embodied in their words and actions.
