Message of Aashooraa_10th Muharram 2013_ Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi



Message of Aashooraa allama kaukab noorani okarvi

According to the holy Qur’aan, Allaah Kareem will surely test every person who claims to be a Muslim. This test is to reveal who is truthful in their faith and who is untruthful. How does Allaah Kareem test? In the holy Qur’aan HE says:

“And We will surely test you with some fear and hunger, and with paucity of wealth and lives and crops/children” 

Each person is tested according to their capability and ability. Who is right or wrong? Who is real or fake? Who is honest or dishonest? All this is confirmed by a test.Only those who are not confident are frightened of a test or trial. 
Allaah Ta’aalaa tested  
Khaleelul Laah Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Ibraaheem 
(‘Alaiehis Salaam) 
 and his son 
Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Ismaa’eel 
(‘Alaiehis Salaam)
The son of Khaleel ul Laah said to his father, “O my respected father! Do as Allaah has commanded. In Shaa Allaah 
(If Allaah wills) you will find me full of patience.” 

Everyone knows that when
 Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Imaam Husaien
 (Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu) 
was only two or three years old, the beloved holy Prophet 
(Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam) 
foretold, 
“After me, this son of mine will be martyred in Karbalaa.”  

 Everyone knew that the incident of Karbalaa would be a trial from Allaah Subhaanuhu Wa Ta’aalaa which is why they all prayed that when the time comes Allaah give 
Imaam Husaien 
(Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu)  
patience and steadfastness on truth.

The son of Hazrat Ibraaheem (‘Alaiehis salaam) said to his father, “You will find me full of patience”.  
 If the son of Habeebul Laah 
(Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam) 
 had shown any kind of weakness, it would not have been according to his significant position. 
Hazrat Imaam Husaien  
(Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu) 
said, “O Allaah All Mighty! 
You test one through his fears. You test one through the pain of hunger and thirst. You test one through the loss of possessions and wealth.  You test one by putting their lives in danger or death. 
You test one by taking away their children and crops. O Allaah!  Put all of these trials in my test. I will sacrifice everything and will not step away from the truth. I will say only this: 
"Whatever is Your happiness is my happiness.”

In order to keep his grandfather’s religion in its original essence he gave this immense sacrifice. Today, the religion of Islaam only exists on its true foundation because of 
Hazrat Imaam Husaien’s
 (Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu)
 greatest sacrifice in the field of Karbalaa.


When someone falls very sick and a doctor says that the only way they can regain their health is by a blood transfusion, then the blood given is checked to make sure it benefits the person instead of harming.  When the life of Islaam was infected, blood was essential for its health and life.   For the religion of the 
Prophet 
(Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam)
whose blood is better than the blood of his grandson? 
 By giving his
 [Hazrat Imaam Husaien’s] 
(Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu) 
blood he revived Islaam. 

Today those who oppose, cry desperately about every insignificant incident and difficulty and if there is a death in their home, the psyche of the household changes.  In the impossible conditions of Karbalaa the steadfastness of Imaam Husaien 
(Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu) 
is a feat of great character.

Alas, today its remembrance is nothing more than an annual customary practice.  Instead of trying to emulate 
Imaan-e-Paak’s 
(Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu)
  character, certain people prefer to waste their time and ruin their faith by criticizing his great spirit of sacrifice.

From the beginning until the end of the universe the day of ‘Aashooraa (10th Muharram) will be very important. 
 All Mighty Allaah 
Subhaanuhu Wa Ta’aalaa 
chose this divine day for the great sacrifice of the
 His beloved and last Holy Prophet’s 
(Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam) 
 grandson 
Hazrat Saiyyidinaa Imaam Husaien
 (Radiyal Laahu ‘Anhu)
 The lesson from the “incident at Karbalaa” is of steadfastness of faith (Ieemaan) and piety (taqwaa) and the act of “aim and determination on righteousness.”

You and I need to ask ourselves, 
“Have we learned anything from 
Imaam-e-Paak’s  
(Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu)  
great sacrifice?  By making the events of Karbalaa the basis, have we changed our lives in respect to faith and piety?

To me it seems like the world is again in the atmosphere of Karbalaa with the Yazeeds of today shaking the foundations of our faith and piety. 

Do we have the courage to do as the Husaieni tradition?  If not, then we are only pretending to have love for
 Imaam-e-Husaien 
(Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu).  


May Allaah Kareem by the grace of the holy blood of  
Ahl-e-Baiet-e-Rasool (holy Prophet’s family), give strength to the Muslim Ummah and help us regain our lost greatness. Aameen

Aashooraa is one of the most important days in Islaamic history. Kindly spend your day pleasing 
Allaah Kareem 
Subhaanuhu Ta’aalaa 
and the Holy Prophet
 (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Aalihi Wa Sallam).

Please forgive this humble slave of Ahle Baiet e Rasool, and remember me in your supplication (du’aa).
