Inna Fil jannati nahran min laban
Li `Aliyyin wa Husaynin wa Hasan
Kullu man kana muhibban lahumu
Yadkhulul jannata min ghairi hazan
Hubbu ahlil bayti fardun `indana
Wa bi hathal hubbi la nakhshal mihan
Surely, a river of milk flows in heaven,
For Ali, Hussain, and Hasan.
And all those who have love for these three,
shall enter the garden without any misery.
For us, love of the Prophet’s family is an obligation,
And with a love like that, we fear no tribulation.
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.
~ Imam Jalāl al-Dīn al-Suyūṭī (Rahimāhullāh) Tārīkh al-Khulafā’, Pages: 184–188. –
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) 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 –
for it is the daily meal of the dogs of Hellfire.
– Imam Husayn ibn ‘Ali Radi Allahu ‘anhum –
‘When my heart turned and looked towards the heavens,
It witnessed the tears of the angels descending to earth,
The tears for al-Husayn (radi Allahu ‘anhu) became the droplets,
which gave life to a dead earth’
-Husayni Sunni –
Salam has seventy virtues, sixty nine of which are for the one who is first to greet, whereas only one award for the one who replies (to your Salaam).
– Imam Husayn ibn ‘Ali radi Allahu ‘anhum –
If you live for a long time and wander in this world from west to the east, you will not find anybody who is able to give you happiness or remove your unhappiness except from Allah ta’ala
– Imam Hussayn ibn Ali (radi Allahu ‘anhum) –
Defender, Reviver, Protector of Islam,
Imam Hussain Ibn Ali, (radi Allahu ‘anhum) most fragrant flower
of the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)
Endless peace be upon you Oh Hussayn!
