A Letter To Kerbala

The letter below was written by a brother who just about missed out to go for Arbaeen in Kerbala.

Dear Kerbala,

I write this letter with utmost grief and sorrow in my heart, and in a state where I can not really seem to forgive myself, simply because I will not be visiting you this time. It has been exactly six months since my first ever visit to you, and you were nothing short of an amazing and very hospitable host.

Kerbala, I remember our first meeting very well, when I descended from the bus to be greeted by the scorching sun and hot air surrounding me, but there was something special in this air, there was a fragrance of heaven that made me forget the heat and fall in love with you immediately. From then on, every step I took with you, I felt special, honored and most of all my heart had finally found the much needed satisfaction I had been looking for over twenty years.

My dear friend, then you made me meet the two holy personalities I have been hearing of every year, the two brave soldiers of Islam and saviour of Humanity, you made me meet Abbas and Husain. O Kerbala, you witnessed my arrival to these two personalities, you stood there to cool me when I cried my heart out as I met Husain and Abbas.

Our farewell was something I never looked forward to, but I was told all good things come to an end, and so did this. However, I remember my promise to Husain and to you O my Friend, that I shall be back with the millions who shall come for Arbaeen, to honor you and show the world how blessed you are; and so did I leave, counting days to come back and meet you.

O heaven on earth, O Kerbala, it is however sad to let you know that our meeting has been postponed for reasons only Allah knows, but Kerbala, please don’t be disappointed, please forgive me for this short coming of mine. I don’t know the reason behind my failure, but maybe I failed in my duties to the Lord, or maybe I didn’t fulfill my obligations to Husain, or maybe I just let down myself.

So Kerbala, I won’t be amongst the millions that will visit you in the coming week, I won’t be amongst the millions who will walk for days just to meet you, I won’t be there to embrace you, nor to see you, but O Kerbala, you are in my heart. O Holy Land, pardon my absence, but make it a reason for my visit in the coming days, because O Land, I am in love with you.

My friend, you have gone through a lot of miseries, problems and difficulties in your life. You were there when Husain was killed, when Abbas’s arms were chopped, when Asgher was struck by a three headed spear and when the caravan was looted. Despite of all this, you have been loyal to the master, you have been an amazing host and are the identity of heaven on earth.

Therefore my friend, I ask you, to host my brothers and sisters coming to visit you, to show them the love, spread within them the aroma and fragrance of heaven, but most of all, O land, make not their meeting with the Master Husain the last, but, one of the many more to come.

O friend, how lucky you are, on you are two holy personalities, to you do millions come every month, and angels descend to yours every hour, so does the Holy Prophet and his progeny, all with nothing but the love and hope to meet and pay respects to Husain, the saviour of humanity.

I shall end this letter O Kerbala, with tears in my eyes, my hands trembling with fear, my body shocked and my heart devastated for missing out the opportunity to meet you once again. However, O lovely friend of mine, I shall be back soon, to visit you and my master Husain.

May you be blessed and loved as always,

Kind regards,

Your devastated friend,

Lover of Husain!

Sayyed Nasrallah speech against disrespect of Holy Prophet

“Oh Most Honorable People, Most Dignified People, and purest of all, Peace be upon you,” Hizbullah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said greeting the hundreds of thousands of protesters on Monday. 

Sayyed Nasrallah did not appear via video-link today, on the 17th of September 2012 to deliver his speech. Instead, the Resistance leader arrived into the ceremony square to deliver a live speech, reiterating the condemnation of the sacrilege anti-Islam film insulting Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his chaste progeny). 
Sayyed Nasrallah thanked people, Muslims and Christians, politicians and religious figures, who have attended the rallies in support of a just cause, that of defending the person of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). Expressing gratitude he said “Peace be on our Prophet Mohammad and his companions and all the prophets and messengers…I thank you for heeding the call of the prophet. I thank all of you, especially the Sunni, Shia and Christian clerics, and the national parties – particularly our brothers in the Amal movement – who responded to our call for protests.” 
Also, Sayyed Nasrallah, assuring the rejection to this insult stated “Some until now are not aware of the degree of insult that targeted the Prophet through some of these scenes [of the 12 minute movie trailer] and stabbed the prophet’s faith, the Quran and his wives.”
“We are here to declare our rejection [of the anti-Islam sacrilegious film], also to completely close the door before any future attempt to repeat such an insult,” Hizbullah leader clearly declared. 

Moreover, Sayyed Nasrallah further added that boycotting the websites that insist on broadcasting the trailer of the film is a must, emphasizing “We should prevent the airing of the complete film by the Americans.” 
He urged the people to “establish planning groups and teams to work and achieve these three objectives,” iterating “The whole world should know that this prophet has followers regardless of how great the sacrifices might be.”
According to Sayyed Nasrallah, America, which objects and deceives under the slogan of freedom, needs to understand that the broadcast of the complete film will yield very dangerous repercussions.
In addition, he recapped that the “All governments and people are required to put their utmost effort and exercise pressure on the international community to issue an international resolution and pass laws that criminalize such acts of insulting Monotheistic religions, also prophets Ibrahim, Moussa (Moses), Issa (jesus), and Mohammad (peace be upon them). 
Furthermore, the Resistance leader encouraged practical steps in defense of Prophet Mohammad, and assured that any delay in this task is considered as negligence in defending Prophet Mohammad, which also keeps the door open to new insults which are of unknown destination. 
Promising that Muslims will unite to serve common objectives, Sayyed Nasrallah guaranteed “Our movement needs to reach all the Ummah in defense of the Prophet.” 
His Eminence noted “We need to underscore the great awareness among Muslims and Christians and highlight the importance of coexistence.” 
“Let no one be deceived that this battle can be ignored. The Muslim world’s failure to come up with international laws that incriminate abuse against Islam will be tantamount to an offense against the Prophet Mohammad,” Sayyed Nasrallah stated.

 

He ended his speech by paying a pledge along with the hundreds of thousands of protesters “We are under your Command our Prophet Mohammad. We, our families and children are under your command. We will defend you with our blood, souls, lives, wealth…Allah is a witness to what we say, the blood of our martyrs, the wounds of our wounded, our demolished homes all witness, we will sacrifice everything for your sake our Prophet.”

 

“Prophet Mohammad, we are under Your command!”

I have not been sent, but to perfect your Akhlaq (Morals/Good Manners) – Prophet Muhammad(SAWW)

Attempts at ridiculing Islam’s great personalities have never been an infrequent occurrence. The Prophet, whilst he was alive, was thrown garbage at, pelted with stones, mocked in public and even had his life threatened. Aba Abdillah’s head was shamelessly disrespected by Yazid (LA), the fourth Imam along with the women of the martyrs of Kerbal were put on display as prisoners of war. These efforts to ridicule or belittle Islam and its great personalities have occurred in the past, are happening in the present and will continue to. What is our responsibility as Muslims, living in different corners of the globe? How do we react to this insensitive, preposterous, unbelievable attack on the Prophet of Islam?

The question we must ask ourselves, before we take any action, is ‘what would our Prophet do?’ Often, we make hasty decisions out of anger and disgust, rushing to the defense of our religion, with good intentions but adopting wrong approach. For instance, some people claim that the western world should be prepared to face the ‘repercussions’ for facilitating the production of this movie, or that they shouldn’t be surprised that Muslims have opted for violence in their reactions. The message may be correct to an extent, reaction to this attack will spark up, considering this is the holiest personality to the religion of Islam. But by stating, that violence is NOT surprising, we may be attributing an element of justification to the way some Muslims have reacted. It is important to note that, in NO way are we permitted to threaten or harm the lives of innocent people. The Prophet(SAWW), in a well-known hadith, was thrown garbage at, continuously for three days by an old lady. He never reacted or retorted, nor did he even ask the lady about her actions. In fact, he visited the lady when her absence was noted. The prophet was the pinnacle of good akhlaq, even when he was subjected to extreme mockery and ridicule. After all, he spent forty years acting upon his famous saying, “The only reason I have been sent is to perfect good manners.” If we are to defend the prophet of Islam, then we should adopt his approach.

The below post is a short clip from Nouman Ali Khan, a well renowned speaker in the Muslim world. It provides good advice on how we should react in these circumstances, as ordained by Allah(SWT), His messenger, and the Holy Qur’an.
