Imam Hussain (alayhi s-salām) a symbol of truth & Yazid of falsehood till Day of Judgment: Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri
In his message marking the 10th of Muharram (Youm-e-Aashur), PAT Chairman and founding-leader of MQI Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that Imam Hussain (alayhi s-salām) is a symbol of truth and Yazid of falsehood till the Day of Judgment. He said that whosoever is left with even an iota of faith does not any doubt whatsoever about Yazid being power hungry, a liar and violator of the human rights. He said that due to sacred blood of the Prophet’s family, the rays of Islam are illuminating the four corners of the world with all their shine and strength.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that those who committed oppression on Imam Hussain (alayhi s-salām) and the family members of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) are eternally condemned and the hell is their final abode where they will languish. He said that Imam Hussain (alayhi s-salām) continues to rule the hearts that gives one an awareness of standing up to oppression and dictatorship.
Dr Qadri further said that the purpose of Hazrat Imam Hussain’s struggle was to revive the dying values of humanity. He said that the supreme sacrifice offered by the Imam proved that nothing is greater than sanctity of the core values of the faith and that the sacrifices laid down in its cause are the most supreme. He said that a martyr enjoys the kind of status that has not been given to any saintly figure. He said that Allah Almighty made six promises with a martyr:
(1)- A martyr is forgiven soon after his martyrdom. (2) A martyr sees his place in paradise. (3) A martyr is shielded from the torment of the grave. (4) A martyr is kept free of the fear of the Day of Reckoning and its attendant anxiety. (5) A martyr is made to wear a dress of ‘iman’. (6) A martyr is allowed to select 70 members of his family for forgiveness.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that these favors and blessings are meant for each believer who has his faith in the finality of the prophethood and if a martyr happens to be the grandson of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), then one can well imagine the status of martyrdom and the supremeness of the sacrifice. He said that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) dubbed Hazrat Imam Hussain (alayhi s-salām) as the leader of the youth in the paradise in his blessed life, stating that it is the Incident of Karbala that tells us as to why the grand Imam (alayhi s-salām) was given this unique honour. He said that the love for the family of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is the part of our faith and love for both the grandsons of the Holy Prophet is actually to love him (peace and blessings be upon him).
The PAT Chairman said that we should live our life in accordance with the principles and values of these revered personalities to make this world a hub of peace and tranquility.
