Imaam Husain (as) gives the purest of a Life and the best of a Path to a Mumin

   
 
al-Hamdo lillaah - Praise be to Allaah Ta'aala
 
   
 

Just like every Hijri-Misri Year, this Moharram ul-Haraam began with the pur josh ‘azaadari of Imaam Husain (as). al-Masjid un-Nooraani turned into the garden of Paradise by the presence of Saiyedna saheb Huzoor-e-‘Aali (tus). The wa'az and taqreer of Mazoon Saheb (dm) which is the life of Moharram ul-Haraam embellished the beginning of the month with Husaini Roohaaniyat and Nooraaniyat. The Walaayat and Aqeedat of Imaam Husain (as) transformed hundreds of mumineen, present in the Masjid, into the Malaa'ekat (angels) of Allaah. Getting an opportunity to attend the Majlis of Imaam Husain (as) is the greatest and choicest blessing of Allaah, says Mazoon Saheb (dm) in his taqreer.

The taqreer of Mazoon Saheb (dm) begins with the Khutbah-e-Baleeghah, which describes and highlights the supreme status of a Mumin in the eyes of Allaah. Mumineen are Faa'ezeen (the winners) for whom Allaah has destined the Paradise. Mumineen are Muttaqeen (having fear of Allaah) for whom Allaah has succeeded their life Hereafter. Mumineen are ‘Aarefeen (having recognition of the right path) for whom Allaah has given the Guide (Hujjatullaah) in this world. Allaah has incorporated the Mumineen among His closest and dearest Creation. They are the Zubdah (cream) of all the creations of Allaah.

Every creation of Allaah is perfect in each of its stage. The purpose of creation is not solved or attained until it gains the perfection – for Allaah has designated a respective level of perfection for everything. For example, a plant attains its perfection till reaches the stage of flowering; flowers attains perfection by getting fertilized; fertilization gets complete by formation of fruit; fruit gains its absoluteness only when it ripens… and so on. The same is true for a Mumin. He is born as a Muslim; his age advances and he is perfected by giving Misaaq to Da'i uz-Zamaan (tus) – when the soul of Imaan and Walaayat gives him altogether new ruhaani life – the life which will keep him alive after the death. Bearing Misaaq in his neck, if a Mumin acts and abides to the obligations of the Shari'at and moulds his character and conduct, he gains more perfection.

O Mumineen, to attain perfection in its entirety, we need to lead a life with Hayaat-e-Taiyebah and Uswat-e-Hasanah (best way and pure life) . The triangle which guides us to Hayaat-e-Taiyebah and Uswat-e-Hasanah is the one whose corners are: Imaam Husain (as), Qur'an-e-Kareem and a Mumin – all of them having 4 letters. As long as we are under the area of this triangle, with the grace of Allaah, we will surely attain the perfection and the true purpose of our life will be solved.

Haazereen Mumineen always embrace the words of Saheb-e-Da'wat (dm) to their hearts and conscience, and the whole Masjid reverberates with the echoes of Yaa Husain, Yaa Husain… when it is said that, O mumineen, you have not come here in the Majlis of Imaam Husain (as) with your will and intention; it is the ‘azaadari that has brought you. It is the Gham-e-Husain that has turned your face away from the pre-occupations of the world and invited you in the Majlis of winning Jannat. Allaah has made us privileged and fortunate that, out of the blackness and evil of the world, He has given us the opportunity to shed tears on the hardships and sufferings of Imaam Husain (as). Because Rasoolullaah (saws) says that, whoever sheds tears on the martyrdom of Imaam Husain (as) and the torment and difficulties of Ahl ul-Bayt (as) will verily get Jannat as the reward. He also says that the Malaa'ekat (Angels) of Allaah collects the tears of that person and on the day of Qayaamat, the same tears will extinguish the fire of Jahannam for him and take him to the Paradise.

Saheb-e-Da'wat (dm) elevates his hands and praises Allaah that it is the Saaya (shadow) of Imaam uz-Zamaan (as) that we are here. It is through his guidance and Ta'eed that we are able to guide you, give Naseehat to you, hold you on Siraat ul Mustaqeem and Hablullaahil Mateen. It is the benevolence and kindness of Da'i uz-Zamaan (tus) with whose Razaa Mubaarak that, you are witnessing the jalaal of Masnad-e-Taiyebi and Maqaam-e-Faatemi. We all are an ordinary servant of Imaam uz-Zamaan (as) whose blessings and bounty have elevated us to this Martabah (rank) not known to others.
