Arbaeen-e-Hussaini is the symbol of victory of the captives of Karbala over oppression and brutality, is also the day of first pilgrimage of the Holy Shrine of Hussain (A.S.) - Hamid Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, October 20: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board and Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Arbaeen-e-Hussaini Chehlum Shuhada-e-Ashoora is the symbol of Aseeran-e-Karbala’s victory over oppression and brutality, is the day of first Zawwari of the Roza-e-Hussain (A.S.). The devotion and love for Nawasa-e-Rasool Ibne Ali (A.S.) are still teaching every oppressor a lesson to deny cruelty. A colonial abuser Trump is trying to make the world a jungle. Oppressors and tyrants like Netanyahu who deported Palestinians and the transgressors like Modi who is responsible for turning Kashmir's largest prison in the world, are afraid of Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.), Aseeran-e-Karbala and ideology of Azadari which is the message of strength for the oppressed people of Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Syria, Nigeria, Qateef al-Awamiya, Yemen and the message of death for oppressors. He expressed these views in his special message on the eve of Chehlum of Shuhada-e-Karbala Youm-e-Arbaeen Hussaini that is being observed throughout the world with passion devotion and respect, on Sunday, Safar 20.

            Agha Moosavi believes that after getting the authenticity of the Qayam-e-Hussaini recognized, the caravan of the Aseeran-e-Karbala led by Nawasi-e-Rasool Syeda Zainab Binte Ali (S.A.) and Hazrat Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S.) reached Karbala on Safar 20. The renowned companion of the Holy Prophet (SAAW) Hazrat Jabir Ibn Abdullah Ansari (R.A.) welcomed this caravan at the Qabr-e-Hussain (A.S.) on the basis of which he was declared the first Zawwar and Mujawir (caretaker) of the Roza’s Imam Hussain (A.S.). He made it clear that Hazrat Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari (R.A.) is considered among the great companions and from amongst those Mohaddiseen who are famous for their immense love and devotion for Khanwada-e-Risalat. He remained alive for 64 years or 68 years after the Wisal of the Holy Prophet (SAAW). He got enough chance to disseminate the Ahadees-e-Nabawi and sometimes travelled to other countries in search of authenticity of Ahadees.

            The TNFJ chief said that this great Sahabi got a long life owing to Dua-e-Rasool (SAAW). He said that according to Ibne Asakir (A.S.) that Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW) had tasked Hazrat Jabir Ibne Abdullah Ansari (R.A.) to deliver his Salam to Imam Hussain’s grandson and Imam Zainul Abideen’s son i.e. Hazrat Imam Muhammad Baqir (A.S.). When this Sahabi offered Ziarat of Qabr-e-Imam Hussain (A.S.) by coming to Karbala on Safar 20 along with Attiya Bin Auf Koofi, he took bath in the Nehr-e-Faraat, scented his body and headed towards the Qabr-e-Mathar of Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) slowly led by Attiya Bin Auf Koofi owing to blindness, put his hand on the Qabr-e-Mathar and went unconscious. When he came out of unconsciousness, he chanted ‘Ya Hussain’ thrice and offered the Ziarat of the Imam Hussain (A.S.) and other Shuhada-e-Karbala.

            Agha Moosavi said that according to research conducted by Syed Murtaza Alam-ul-Huda, the head of the Imam Hussain (A.S.) was attached to the body of the Imam (A.S.) by Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S.) who had brought it from Shaam (Syria) on Safar 20. He said Ziarat-e-Arbaeen has immense importance in Sha’air-e-Islami. He said the Yazidi tyranny and Umavi Malookiyat committed biggest terrorism of the history on Muharram 10, 61 Hijra to suppress the voice of Hussaini negation to Yazidi Ba’ait. The Mukhaderat-e-Ismat and Taharat of Mohsin-e-Insaniyyat Nabi Kareem Muhammad Mustafa (SAAW) were rounded in the streets of Kufa and Shaam without Chaddar and the Aseeran-e-Karbala bore this worst oppression with courage rather through their Khutbaat made the people aware of the Yazidi oppression and of the objectives of Qayam-e-Hussaini. Pressed by the revolutionary stance of the people the Umavi government not only forced to release the Aseeran-e-Karbala but also accepted all their conditions and the victory of Hazrat Zainab (S.A.) and Hazrat Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S.) by holding Majlis-e-Hussain in Shaam.

            The TNFJ chief said that today Arbaeen-e-Hussain has been transformed into international gathering. Millions of Zaireen walk from Najaf to Karbala covering a distance of 85 kilometres and they are feted en route in an extraordinary manner. He said owing to the teachings of Aseeran-e-Karbala the thirst for Ziarat-e-Hussain (A.S.). That is why, he added, the colonial and Zionist powers patronized arson and jalao-gherao this year on the start of Arabeen but despite that a huge number of Zaireen have thronged the Arbaeen event.

            The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi on the occasion of Universal Youm-e-Arbaeen Hussain (A.S.) to continue raising the Sada-e-Haq by holding the Parcham-e-Hussainiyyat (A.S.) and will continue supporting the oneness of the Islamic World and oppressed world and hatred against the oppressors through the teachings of Azadari bestowed on us by Aseeran-e-Karbala.
