“This movement of mine is not on account of stubbornness, rebellion, worldly passions or instigation by Satan. It is also not my object to create trouble or to oppress anyone. The only thing which invites me to this great movement is that I should reform the affairs of the followers of my grandfather, eradicate corruption, undertake enjoining to do good and restraining from evil.” Imam Hussian (AS)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
TRAGEDY OF KARBALA
6th Imam Hussain (As) Conference Ireland. 2012
The 6th ANNUAL IMAM HUSSIAN (AS) CONFRIENCE 2012” is schedule to be held at The Chester Beatty Library, Dublin Castle Dublin 2, on Sunday 2nd of December 2012.
Time 1:30 – 4:30 pm.
Around 680, AD on the planes of KARBALA, (which is now a famous Golden domed Iraqi city) Aba-Abdullah Al-Hussain (AS), known as IMAM HUSSSIAN (AS) , the thirds Shia Imam, and the grandson of Prophet Mohammed ( AS) was mercilessly massacred with his entire family and friends of 72 members. His six month old baby Ali Asghar and his eighty year old dear friend Habib Ibne Mazahir was in this camp along with women and children. His only crime was that he has refused to give the oath of allegiance to the most despicable, worst, corrupt and wild ruler of the time Yazid-bin-Muawia. This is the point in the early history of Islam where a cleavage occurred in the body of Islam then, and Shia and Sunni Muslim definite ideologies were emerged subsequently.
Ever since, in the last 1400 years, The Muslim community all over the world commemorate this greatest injustice committed to the holy family of Prophet Mohammad, and to the mankind at large. They recite the story of massacre, recite poetry, out loud express their emotions and grief and offer their condolences in the heartfelt sorrow in public gatherings. These are called “Majlis” …gathering of people to offer condolences to each other and remember this great tragedy.
Join us in paying our respects and homage to the sister of Imam Hussain (AS), Syeda ‘Zainab (SA), who put down the tradition of these condolences meeting immediately when she was released from the prison of Yazid in 680 Ad. . This tradition has lived on and has become the symbol of martyrs. Over the years many people and nations have taken the example of this great Tragedy of Karbala as a symbol of strength to defend the oppression, when ever and where ever it is applied to oppress people and nations.
Chester Beatty Library has paintings on display that Shows commemorations and Azadari of Imam Hussain in a Muslim Mughal Court in India in 14 / 15 century
