Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A) taught Muslim Umma the way to live: Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz

Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz, senior Deputy Secretary General of Minhaj-ul-Quran International, has said that the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A) is characterized by patience, gratitude, submission to the will of Allah and struggle against ideological attack on Islam. He preferred to get his head chopped off for the sake of truth to submitting it to a system of oppression and cruelty. He did not hesitate to render any sacrifice for the sake of Islam and preservation of its ideological purity. "The martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A) imparts us lessons of courage, bravery and passion for sacrifice for larger good," he said.

Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz expressed these views while addressing a seminar on the subject of "The martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A) and our responsibilities" organized by Minhaj-ul-Quran Youth League in the central secretariat the other day. Faiz-ur-Rehman Durrani, central Amir-e-Tehreek, presided over the seminar, whereas other speakers included Ahmad Nawaz Anjum, Allama Rana Muhammad Idrees, Dr Tanvir Azam Sandhu, Sajid Mahmood Bhatti, Bilal Mustafvi and Allama Ghulam Murtaza Alvi.

Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz said that the great Imam showed the Umma the way to live honourably and with dignity and his sacrifice formed a glorious chapter in the history of mankind. "The life, conduct and character of the great Imam is a beacon of light for everyone without any discrimination," he concluded.
