Arbaeen e Hussaini is the milestone on the path of Azadari  which the colonial powers are afraid of - Hamid Moosavi


ISLAMABAD, October 26: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board Quaid-i-Millat Jafaria Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Mousavi has vowed that he will not spare a single minute in upholding the Shaair-e-Hussain. We will keep the Parcham of Gham-e-Hussain flutter high in every calamity, problem and difficulty which guarantees survival of our life, and blessings. Arbaeen-e-Hussaini is the most important milestone in the mourning of Syeda Zainab (H.A.) and Zain-ul-Abidin (A.H.) from which arrogant forces and colonialism are afraid of. The revolutionary message of Imam Hussain (A.S.) may not be there in shape of lesson but despite that the oppressed people continue stepping in towards the soil of Karbala the basic reason of which is the universal lesson of mourning. Despite cutting the hands and feet of Zaireen and keeping their voice shut the echoes of Labbaik Ya Hussain are increasing day by day. He expressed these views in a special message issued on the occasion of Chehlum of Shuhada-e-Karbala the Day of Arbaeen-e-Hussaini which is to be observed Thursday, 20 Safar with religious fervor, devotion and respect.

Agha Mousavi said that when caravan of Khanwada-e-Risalat (SAAW) arrived in Karbala, they found the great Companion of the Holy Prophet (SAAW) named Hazrat Jabir Ibne Abdullah Ansari who had already reached there along with Mufassir-e-Quran Attiya Saad Bin Janadah Auf Kufi (in some books it was written as Ata. It is rendered that Companion of the Holy Prophet (SAAW) i.e. Hazrat Jabir Ibne Abdullah Ansari appeared in Karbala after knowing about the Shahadat of Rasool’s (SAAW) grandson imbibed with devotion and love for him and became the first Zair and Mujawar of Karbala. In other words, he said, Arbaeen is the Sunnah of pious Sahaba Kubaar also. He said there is vital role of Azadari in the foundation and survival of our motherland Pakistan.

The TNFJ chief emphasized that the facts proved that the recent wave of hatred in the beloved homeland was a conspiracy of the enemies of Islam and Pakistan under the guise of a failed attempt to change the traditional and influential style of mourning processions once again which is a source of strength for Yazidism. He clarified that Zikr-e-Hussein is spreading in every country and city and is the open declaration of war against every effort aimed at trampling the religion and Shariat, practical lesson of denial of wrong-doings of the powerful and the message of victory for the oppressed.

Agha Mousavi said that wherever the message of Hussainiyyat was mentioned, there was a longing for freedom in the hearts of the oppressed people who had been crushed for centuries. Attempts were made to change the spirit of its purpose and goal by using the local conditions as an excuse to raise objections to mourning rites and sometimes to question the legitimacy of mourning on the basis of mourners and preachers. Attempts have been made to downplay the importance of mourning by prioritizing worldly mourning over the mourning of the people of Karbala, but we have always mourned according to the teachings of the Imams, the traditions of the elders and the teachings of the elders. He said we always preferred Hussain (A.S.) over every grief because this grief is Hussain (A.S.) and mourning is the ointment of every grief.

The TNFJ chief said that those who are trying to arrange rallies in a political manner instead of Majalis, Matam, Noha, Zanjirzani, Qamazani and Azadari by Azadaran and Matmis should not forgive the Fatwa of Ayatollah Roohullah Moosavi Khameini in which he has clear stated: “We should protect those Islamic Sunnah and Islamic Matmi Dastas who perform Azadari by coming out on roads on the Day of Ashoor, Ayyam-e-Muharram and Safar. They are the memorials of sacrifices and the sacrifices of the martyrs who have kept Islam alive. He warned that those who want to give political color to mourning or change the form of traditional mourning processions are ignorant of the philosophy of mourning. These elements desire to alienate people of other sects and religions from Hussainiyyat. He said those who are trying to do that would be answerable to Madar-e-Hussain Syeda Konain (S.A.).

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafaria Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Mousavi on the occasion of the Universal Arbaeen-e-Hussaini Day expressed reiterated his resolve to continue raising the voice of truth by holding the flag of Hussainiyyat and unity of the Islamic World and will continue to fulfil their responsibility to support the oneness of the Islamic World, oppressed the world over and hatred against the oppressor through mourning lessons given by the prisoners of Karbala. And will continue by following the lessons learnt from Aseeran-e-Karbala.
