The World stood still!

When al-Ḥusayn radi Allahu ‘anhu was martyred, the world stood still for seven days and the stars collided with one another. He was killed on the Day of ‘Ashūra’ [10th of Muharram] and there was a lunar eclipse on that day and the horizon was a blood-red color for six months after that. The redness of the sky continued after that, even though such a thing had never been seen before. It was also said that not a single stone was overturned in Jerusalem on that day except that fresh blood was found beneath it.

The Ode Of Humanity


Sayyidina Husayn (Radi Allahu ‘anhu) Gives Passion To The Ode Of Humanity,
The Truthful People Learned The Lesson Of Freedom From Husayn (Radi Allahu ‘anhu)

– Allama Iqbal rahimahu Llah –

Imam Husayn (radi Allahu ‘anhu) became the foundation of the Muslim creed…


Imam Husayn (radi Allahu ‘anhu) uprooted despotism forever till the Day of Resurrection. He watered the dry garden of freedom with the surging wave of his blood, and indeed he awakened the sleeping Muslim nation. Husayn weltered in blood and dust for the sake of truth. Verily he, therefore, became the bed-rock (foundation) of the Muslim creed; la illaha illa Allah (There is no god but Allah).

—Sir Muhammad Iqbal rahimahu Llah –

The State of Imam Husayn’s Son’s Prostration

A fire once broke out in a house while ‘Ali the son of Imam Husayn {May Allah be pleased with them} was prostrating in prayer and he didn’t raise his head until the fire went out. When asked about this, he said:

Sorry, the other Fire kept my mind busy.

The Night of ‘Id


The night we reach Madinah and stand infront of your noble gates with tears in our eyes and say, “Asalatu wa salam ‘alayka Ya Rasulallah!” shall be the night of Eid.

Only You suffice us.


O Gracious, Merciful One!
Wipe off all our sins & worries,
Realize our heartiest desires,
Glorify us here & hereafter,
And gaze upon us lovingly.

Indeed, You are near.
And only You suffice us.
