Hazrat Imam Hussain’s (AS) message is not to compromise with evil forces: Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri

Zikr e Hussain (RA) aur Tazkira e Karbala (Complete Speech)
Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that the holy month of Moharram has been particularized for the members of one sect, while the fact remains that grief and anguish which this month symbolizes is part of faith of the Muslim community and it is not correct to confine it to followers of this sect. He said that Hazrat Imam Hussain is ambassador of love and peace, whereas Yazid is representative of terrorism, exploitation, and evil. He imparted lesson of not submitting before the evil forces whatever be the circumstances. The plains of Karbla, he said, gave birth to philosophies of Hussainiyat and Yazidiyat, which would remain relevant till the Day of Judgment. He said that advocates of Yazidi thought would continue to meet failure in their lives. By refusing to take allegiance at the hands of Yazid, Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) gave this lesson to humanity that those who sacrifice their lives for the sake of principles live throughout history and the dictators of the time lose in the final analysis.

Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri expressed these views while delivering his keynote speech telephonically from Canada at “Peghaam-e-Imam Hussain Conference”. Sahibzada Faiz-ur-Rehman Durrani, Farhat Hussain Shah, GM Malik, Raja Jamil Ajmal and other leaders were also present on the occasion. He said that Yazid tried to disfigure Islamic teachings, which was not acceptable to the great Imam. He offered the sacrifice of his life and his family but saved Islam against any possibility of corruption and disfigurement. The behaviours of sacrifice, perseverance, patience, and selflessness issued forth from the great sacrifice of Imam Hussain (AS), which the world is benefiting today. The personality of the great Imam is as respectable for the non-Muslims as it is for the Muslims, for he elevated the status of humanity through his act.

Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that following the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS), the skies turned black and stars appeared on it during the day time and the heavens remained red for some time. According to some traditions, he said, it continued to rain blood. Other leaders also spoke on the occasion.
