10 Lessons From The #Tragedy of #Karbala

1. #Hussain (as) stopped in the middle of the battlefield to perform his obligatory #prayers with arrows shooting at him… the least we can do is perform our daily prayers on time.

2. #Hussain (as) #sacrificed his family including his six month old for the sake of Allah (swt)...the least we can do is sacrifice our worldly desires for the sake of Allah (swt)!

3. Lady #Zainab (as) prayed Salatul Layl (the night prayers) in the state of sitting down on the night of #Ashura after the tragic loss of her entire family… the least we can do is pray Salatul layl in our peaceful nights!

Sayyida Zainab (a.s) knew that she had to protect her nephew, #ImamZaynAlAbidin (p) and did so as best she could. She remained steadfast, protected him physically when necessary, and publicly spoke out when the truth was distorted and covered.
Sayyida #Zainab (p) also knew that to safeguard the future of her grandfather’s religion and its believers people must always remember the sacrifice of #ImamHussain (a.s), his family, and companions. Women became the flagbearers of the message of Imam Hussain (a.s).

Part 2: "I saw Nothing but Beauty."

Sayyida Zainab’s speech in Kufa represents the first statement and comment issued by Ahl al-Bayt (a.s) on the #Karbala incident. Her speech is also considered the first round of her battle against crime and Umayyad oppression.

In #Kufa, when captives were brought to Ubayd Allah ibn Ziyad, he decided to express his joy of victory in front of Sayyida #Zainab (a.s). He rudely said to her: “Praise be to Allah who disgraced you, and revealed your sayings as false.”
She (a.s) immediately frustrated his conspiracy by replying: “Praise be to Allah who has honored us with His Messenger, and purified us from impurity. The one who is disgraced is certainly the libertine,

Part 1: "The Political Aspect of Mourning"

Lady #Zainab (a.s) was the first to mourn Imam #Hussien (a.s). It is important to highlight the political role of mourning, and that mourning ceremonies can play the role of a religious and worldly conference. Image
This #political nature was proportional to the circumstances and their fluctuations according to the first stage, and given the nature of that foundational stage.
The invitation of Lady Zainab (a.s) followed by that of Imams (a.s) to mourning ceremonies can be considered as a political stance. It stands against the attempts to suppress the #Shiites and to marginalize the role of the followers of Ahl al-Bayt (a.s).

Since most people are unaware of the significance of #Muharram or the sacrifice of Hussain please bear with me as I recite the history of #Karbala every day

Karb ( anguish) and Bala ( calamity) were the name given to the land of Nainawa where Imam Hussain and the male members of his family ( excluding an ill son) were martyred along with his companions. The ladies were imprisoned & taken to Syria
#Muharrum #Karbala #twittermajlis
When Yazid son of Mu'awiya declared himself as a ruler over the Ummah, he demanded Imam Hussain 's allegiance . Imam
flatly refused
Yezid floured the tenets of Islam as taught by the Prophet and #Hussain said,
"Someone like me, does not pledge allegiance to someone like him”.

2. He allegedly called out to God (Allah) 'Is there any soul to help me?' but he had been betrayed.

All thanks to the Almighty!

#ZAINAB’s life has been saved!

Officials of the Nigerian Embassy in Jeddah have received Zainab Habibu Aliyu.

Kudos to the @MBuhari administration.

Thanks to everyone that has helped in promoting this lady’s plight. Image
2. On a related note, there’s need for FG to seriously investigate and take appropriate actions on Nigerians convicted or awaiting trial in Saudi and other countries all over the world. Some of them may be victims just like Zainab.
3. The perpetrators of Zainab’s ordeal and their co-travelers must be meticulously investigated and brought justice. There appears to be a gang operating this cruelty. They must all be tracked and stopped putting another Nigerian’s life in danger.
