Hussain martyr political

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


There is no department or aspect of life which is beyond the bounds of the complete code and conduct of life called Al-Islam. Islam demands that not only oneís individual life, but even oneís communal life should be lived in submission to the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws).


Hadrat Hussain ibn Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) led a principle based uprising against a government who had taken rulership over the muslims against the consensus of the believers, and thus against the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah. Thus although Hadrat Hussainís (r.a.) murder was done on a political basis, politics is well within the tenets of Islam; and there is absolutely no doubt or disagreement amongst the scholars in Islam that Hadrat Hussain (r.a.) was murdered because of his rightful stance on a principle based on the Quran and Sunnah. Thus his death on the plains of Karbala was akin to martyrdom in the Cause of Allah Subhanah.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahís Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
