Imam Hussein and his Companions Shielded Islam: Imam Khomeini

Imam Khomeini the great spiritual and religious leader of the Muslim world revived genuine teachings of the household members of the holy prophet of Islam and hailed the companions of Imam Hussein (PBUH).

In the house of the Holy Prophet, which presented the best image of both the worlds - the heaven and the earth – Imam Hussein (PBUH) was born on one of the nights of the month of Shaban (3rd Shaban).

 

 His father was Imam Ali(PBUH),  the best model of kindness towards his friends and the bravest against the enemies of Islam, and his mother was Hazrat Fatimah (PBUH), the only daughter and child of the Holy prophet who had as universally acknowledged, inherited the qualities of her father.

 

Imam Hasan and Hussein (peace be upon them), the two sons of the Holy Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib and Hazrat Fatimah (peace be upon them) were respected and revered as the ‘Leaders of the Youths of Paradise’ as stated by the Holy Prophet.

Later years, Imam Hussein offered great sacrifices to rescue Islam from any distorting elements and promoted it in its origin and genuine form as promoted by the holy prophet of Islam.

 

According to the great Imam Khomeini, matchless sacrifice of the Household of Imam Hussein (PBUH) and his Companions shook the pillars of tyrant rulers.

 

“The revolution of Ashura emerged at the hands of the Master of Martyrs (PBUH), who by sacrificing his own blood and the blood of his dear ones saved Islam and justice, and condemned the rule of the Umayyads and demolished its rules and foundations.”

To clarify the place of highly spiritual certainty of the companions of Imam Hussein (as), Imam Khomeini says:

“As the Master of Martyrs on the day of Ashura approached the time of martyrdom his face was shining more, and his companions were competing to win martyrdom, they knew they would soon become martyrs, but they raced towards it because they knew where it would lead them, and they knew why they came (to support the Imam), they were aware that we had come to perform their divine duty, they had come to save Islam.”

The great spiritual leader said that Imam Hussein (PBUH) offered so much sacrifices for the promotion of divine religion. 

“Islam is dear to the degree that the children of the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and his family) have sacrificed their own lives for this religion.”

The great religious leader said the grandson of the holy prophet of Islam rescued Islam from all types of distortion.

“When the Master of Martyrs (PBUH) saw that they are distorting the religion of Islam, commit evil and oppress other on behalf of the Islamic caliphate, and this is being reflected in the world as acts committed by the Khalifah of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), the Master of Martyrs was aware that his mandate was to rise in order to erase the effects of Muawiyah and his son.”

Imam Khomeini said that each era and land must take after to Karbala and masses and elites must carry out their divine duties in accordance.

“This phrase – every day is Ashura and every land is Karbala – what a great phrase it is … Our nation should live by this word every day, that is that today is Ashura and we need to stand in the face of injustice, and here also is Karbala, and it is not confined to a piece of land, is not limited to a range of individuals; Karbala is not confined to seventy warriors and the land of Karbala; all the land must play this role and fulfill its duty.”

Imam Khomeini made clear that there should be no thought of defeat in the performance of divine duty. He further confirms that the principle of victory and defeat is not entirely linked to a military triumph, but in fact that the work is in accordance with the divine standards and falls under the legal mandate. The great Imam says:

“The death of the Master of Martyrs (PBUH) was not a defeat, because it was for God, and revolting and dying in the way of God is never defeat.”

The founder of the Islamic Republic believed that the message of Ashura must be persevered for future generations for centuries to come.
