Proclaim Good and Forbid Evil, always and at all costs !
No people can live successfully, fruitfully and triumphantly without strong memory of their past. 10th of Moharram is one such occasion. Muslims attempt to recall the tragic event around the 60th year after Prophet Muhammad migrated from Makkah to Madinah. This time it was his family led by his noble grandson Imam Hussain (peace & blessings be upon all of them).
Reciting Divine words, reflecting Prophetic advises and studying history enables us crystallize our insights. However, when we attempt to draw the imagery of Karbala, no heart could be so hard as not to be pierced with piteous feeling while replaying the Day of Ashura. Words can simply not do justice to the sacrifices made on that day. They kept their heads high, faces bathed in blood and tears, looking one upon another. Others stood in dolorous pain, looking up to the highest heavens, fixing their eyes upon it, crying out, asking help from the Only Helper; while others made lamentations in the manner of dirge. Today we try to recall their pain, suffering and sacrifices, as they happened, to inspire ourselves and to understand the concept of sacrifice for a noble cause.
Regrettably, sacrifice as is generally understood today, is to give up something that should not have been touched in the first place. Selfless and unasked giving is a rarity and unheard of. Giving one's entire self and off springs for His pleasure is unimaginable. Muslims must spiritually survive from the unparallel yesterdays of Prophet's progeny.
We have been largely overwhelmed by a culture that has emptied our memories, made us apologetic for who we are, and stripped us along the way of the sheerest hope of self-definition. We alone are presumed past less and are left to repair our self-esteem. Imperative it is for us today, to define ourselves by our ongoing tribulations and those who mete them out to us. Otherwise, we cannot be collectively successful if we have no idea or, worse, have the wrong idea of who we were and who we are. Getting replaced, then seems to be only logical and deserving (refer 9:39).
The intent of this writing is to stimulate, not to sate -- to pose the question and to invite reflection -- to cause ourselves to act for an almost forgotten legacy of the sacrifices made by our beloved Prophet (pbuh) and his progeny.
O Allah (swt) bestow upon us the courage to enjoin, proclaim and enforce Good and patience and perseverance to forbid and stop Evil for and by all. Ameen Ya Rabb.

I started off as a 'patriotic American"believing all that was fed to me from the school years to 1998 when I was 49 years old. I stumbled across the devastating casualties from the economic sanctions against Iraq. Being the 'patriotic American' I set out to disprove these claims. The rest has been a growing awareness of the magnitude of my country's criminal activities.
I cannot foster anger for those who promote this brutality. It is clear in the Bible, as it is in the Koran that hatred is a separater between us and God. But it is not easy.
I hope to do the walk from Amman to Baghdad if I can manage it. This is under the auspices of Voices in the Wilderness.
If hardship makes saints, I guess we will be led into the 21st Century by Sufis and Islamic saints.
In Peace henry
You dearest Holy Spirit, have brought this man to his present condition, and you know his heart better than he, because you and the hand of God have created him.
But what have you created him for - for destruction? To assist you in leading others to their destruction because they do not fear God? In his writings, there is no awareness of the peace which surpasses all understanding. Is he at rest? You have made the man reading these words the spoon in the pot of flesh to stir up passions of discention that men who turn against you will turn against one another; and blessed I am to see your power over men who turn away from you. Amen to you Lord.
I thank you Lord that thou has removed me from that pot. Would that the man reading these words would understand that he is his worst enemy for failing to seek understanding of your words and of the seriousness as you take them. I will not pray for the man who is so arrogant as to make his authority the reason something is to be done.
Thank you Lord that I uphold you and you alone. Amen.
Well, i just cannot say anything as for now that the whole world is going recession against Islam, today the parliment has passed the bill on Prevention of Terrirsiom Act, mainly towards Muslims, ofcourse we are faceing a tuff time, now there is earthquacke in Afghanistan, which clearly indicates were we are heading, I really pray from bottom of heart that all this will come to an end, may Allah has mercy on us and to Strengthen us - Amen.
I JUST WANT 2 ASK THAT WE SUNNI WHAT IS OUR ROLE SHOULD BE REGARDING 10TH OF MUHRAAM
LIKE IT HAS MENTIONED IN QURAN OR HADEES THAT EVERY MAJOR EVENT OF THE WORLD HAS TOOK PLACE IN 10TH OF MUHRAAM
WHY KARBALAA IS GIVEN SO IMPORTANCE?
I M ASKING IT FOR MY KNOWLEDGE I DON'T MEAN 2 DISGRACE ANY RELIGION
AND SIR IT IS MY FIRST TIME I M ASKING QUESTION ON UR SITE I DON'T KNOW THE RULES & REGULATION
I WILL BE THANK FUL IF U HELP ME GETTING FIRM BELIEF ON ISLAM ............
may Almighty Allah make things easy for us, amin.
I am happy and feel blessed to live in such a promanent country. Because I know my family can have a choice to fail if they want to. not because were we live will not give them the chance. I'm proud to know my children will be able to choose ther own religion and ther own spouses with out getting killed aor outcasted by society. But I'm not proud of the racisim and hipocracies that are allowed to go here. The laws of the land have been takin over by the laws of man.The government does not reflect the views of the people. Police don't serve the people it dictates and bullies. The blue in ther uniform is no better then the blue on the gangbangers uniforms. This is just the opinion of a twenty five year old who still has a lot of the world to see. I just wanted to share my views.
Peace be with you.
While the raid on these Islamic organizations by the US authorities is scandalous and could have taken a more diplomatic approach, I hope it serves as a wake-up call to some of these modernist Islamic groups.
The IIIT and others of its ilk have adopted a modernist interpretation of Islam and bent over backwards to present a Western-friendly posture by deviating from many a classical understanding of the Deen.
THey fail to realize that Islam is anti-thetical to all Kufri and Jaahili systems of life, and that the disbelievers will never pleased with us until we follow their way (millah), as Allah says in the Quran.
We can condemn the 'persecution' of US muslims as long time as we want, but until we do some serious soul-searching ourselves we will never fully come to terms with the reality of our condition.
Wa billahi at-tawfeeq
Can you tell me why and when the month of Muharram was actually named and the meaning behind it???
Al hamdu lillah. You see we are told that the devil from the time man was created has not stopped to fight him in every way. Either drectly or through proxies and the like. The other thing is that what ever he does he's mischieve is weak. The non believers will not have the upper hand in the other what ever they. The end result and the success will only go to the believers in the end of the day. Any muslim is very much hurt with the matters going in the world. This raids on muslims is all over not only in America.
The paining thing is that we muslims are far from from our creator. Look at the mosques in Fajr "morning" and Asr " evenning. We should try to establish a strong relationship with our creator the Almighty. Allah is the creator and non can do anything with the will of Allah.
May Allah help muslims realis that our success is in Complete Deen. The call for Salah we are told " come to salah come to success"
As salaamu alaikum w.w.
Quraan specifically mentions that muslims should only believe on Allah for all support since the evil world will be opposing the justice since the hypocrites will be the first to face the trial when they commit crime on humanity and they will be guilty. That is why they try to finish the truth from the face of this earth although they live and eat in this world created by HIM.
May Allah ease the hurdle and provide resourses to the needy from the source no one can imagine. The only thing is that we need to have firm faith only and only on Allah.
May Allah The Most Powerful bring us back to the true Islam, Amin.
or place thems in banks in other parts of the world? Will they open their eyes?
I pray to Almighty to give us right leaders and protect all innocent muslims here and all over the World.
