Quotations about Imam Hussain (R.A.) by Non-Muslims

1-Mahatma Gandhi “I learnd from Hussein how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”

Thomas Carlyle (Scottish historian and essayist): “The best lesson which we get from the tragedy of Cerebella is that Husain and his companions were rigid believers in God. They illustrated that the numerical superiority does not count when it comes to the truth and the falsehood. The victory of Husain,
despite his minority, marvels me!”

Edward Gibbon (English historian and member of parliament): “In a distant age and climate, the tragic scene of the death of Hosein will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.” (The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, London, 1911, volume 5, p. 391-392)

Charles Dickens (English novelist): “If Husain had fought to quench his worldly desires…then I do not understand why his sister, wife, and children accompanied him. It stands to reason therefore, that he sacrificed purely for Islam.”

Antoine Bara (Lebanese writer): “No battle in the modern and past history of mankind has earned more sympathy and admiration as well as provided more lessons than the martyrdom of Husayn in the battle of Karbala.” (Husayn in Christian Ideology)

Dr. K. Sheldrake: “Of that gallant band, male and female knew that the enemy forces around were implacable, and were not only ready to fight, but to kill. Denied even water for the children, they remained parched under the burning sun and scorching sands, yet not one faltered for a moment. Husain
marched with his little company, not to glory, not to power of wealth, but to a supreme sacrifice, and every member bravely faced the greatest odds without flinching.”

Ignaz Goldziher (Hungarian orientalist): “…Weeping and lamentation over the evils and persecutions suffered by the ‘Alid family, and mourning for its martyrs: these are things from which loyal supporters of the cause cannot cease. ‘More touching than the tears of the Shi’is’ has even become an
Arabic proverb.” (Introduction to Islamic Theology and Law, Princeton, 1981, p.179)

Edward G. Brown (Professor at the University of Cambridge): “…a reminder of that blood-stained field of Karbala, where the grandson of the Apostle of God fell, at length, tortured by thirst, and surround by the bodies of his murdered kinsmen, has been at anytime since then, sufficient to evoke, even
in the most lukewarm and the heedless, the deepest emotion, the most frantic grief, and an exaltation of spirit before which pain, danger, and death shrink to unconsidered trifles.” (A Literary History of Persia, London, 1919, p.227)

Sir William Muir (Scottish orientalist): “The tragedy of Karbala decided not only the fate of the Caliphate, but also of Mohammadan kingdoms long after the Caliphate had waned and disappeared.” (Annals of the Early Caliphate, London, 1883, p.441-442)

“Though Imam Hussain gave his life years ago, but his indestructible soul rules the hearts of people even today.”Dr. Radha Krishnan

Mahatma Gandhi-“My faith is that the progress of Islam does not depend on the use of sword by its believers, but the result of the supreme sacrifice of Hussain (R.A.), the great saint.”

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru-“Imam Hussain’s (R.A.) sacrifice is for all groups and communities, an example of the path of righteousness.”

Reynold Alleyne Nicholson “Hussain (R.A.) fell, pierced by an arrow, and his brave followers were cut down beside him to the last man. Muhammadan tradition, which with rare exceptions is uniformly hostile to the Umayyad dynasty, regards Hussain (R.A.) as a martyr and Yazid as his murderer.” [A Literary History of the Arabs, Cambridge, 1930, p197]

Rabindranath Tagore-“In order to keep alive justice and truth, instead of an army or weapons, success can be achieved by sacrificing lives, exactly what Imam Hussain (R.A.) did

Dr. Rajendra Prasad-“The sacrifice of Imam Hussain (R.A.) is not limited to one country, or nation, but it is the hereditary state of the brotherhood of all mankind.”

Dr. Radha Krishnan-“Though Imam Hussain (R.A.) gave his life almost 1300 years ago, but his indestructible soul rules the hearts of people even today.”

Swami Shankaracharya-“It is Hussain’s (R.A.) sacrifice that has kept Islam alive or else in this world there would be no one left to take Islam’s name.”

Mrs. Sarojini Naidu–“I congratulate Muslims that from among them, Hussain (R.A.), a great human being was born, who is reverted and honored totally by all communities


Allah(SWT) Neutralizes Qadiani Plots Time and Time again

Sunday, December 5, 2010

Mirza's Prophesy proved false:
"Kings will receive blessings (bara’kat) from your (Mirza’s) clothing."

Immediately after the Second World War, a severely weakened and battered Britain saw its direct influence around the world diminish. Thus, another once mighty nation, which arrogantly had believed itself to be the lord of the worlds and oppressed millions, was brought down to its neeks by the Almighty Allah(SWT). By the year 1965, the last remnants of the British Colonial powers had decaid under its weight and the British were forced to grant the country of Gambia its independence.

In a last ditched attempt to keep indirect control of the nation, the British abdicated rule in favor of one of their faithful supporters, Mr. Farman Sangat. Mr. Sangat was a known Qadiani, who one year earlier had traveled to Rabwah, Pakistan, and given his oath of allegiance (bai’at) to Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood, the second head of the Qadiani Movement. During the British rule, the Qadiani headquarters in Gambia had continually preached that obedience to the British Empire was an article of faith for every Muslim. Now, as the eward for their unshakable support during the years, a Qadiani was appointed to the position of absolute Governor of that land.

Soon after, Mirza Nasir Ahmad succeeded his father to the leadership of the Qadiani movement and ordered his subject, the dictator of Gambia, to officially request for one of Mirza Ghulam’s (the founder of the Qadiani movement and self-appointed prophet) old articles of clothing! Mirza Nasir Ahmad did so to be able to claim that one of the prophecies of his grandfather, Mirza Ghulam, had come true. This prophecy was that:

"Kings will receive blessings (bara’kat) from your (Mirza’s) clothing."

Upon receiving the written request, the Qadiani leadership boastfully published posters all over the world, announcing that the prophecy had come true, as the "king" of the country of Gambia had requested for such a piece of clothing!

The First Bara’kat of Mirza: However, the "blessing" of Mirza Ghulam proved to be very costly to the "king" of Gambia! No sooner had the clothing reach Gambia that the people of that nation revolted against the British appointed ruler, toppled his regime, and threw him in prison. It was fitting that Allah(SWT) once more shattered another calculated plot of the Qadiani leadership:

…They (the unbelievers) plot and plan, and Allah too plans;
but Allah is the best of planners.

(The Holy Quran, Al-Anfal, 8:30)

The Second Bara’kat of Mirza: Apparently, the "blessing" of the clothing of Mirza Ghulam still continues several decades later! In the late 1997, the publicly elected President of the nation of Gambia, Mr. Yahya Abubakr, officially declared the country's Qadiani community a non-Muslim minority.

Through this historic decision, Allah(SWT) completely annihilated another one of the elaborated schemes of the Qadiani leadership.


Pearls of Wisdom from Hazrat Umer bin Khattab (Razialla) The Second Caliph

1- When someone transgresses upon your rights (and in doing so disobeys Allah) the way to ‘revenge’ is to obey Allah in dealing with him. (use reason/rules instead of anger)

2- When something comes to you from your brother, accept it as something good, unless you have overwhelming evidence against it. (hush dhann- thinking good of people)

3- Don’t take the word of a Muslim as ill. When there is a way of seeing it positively, take it that way. Find one good interpretation out of 10.

4- Avoid positions that will make others doubt you. (ie disobey Allah publicly, hang out with ppl who don’t care, at all time and places)

5- Do not blame others. When you have a secret, its under your control, but when you tell someone else, that control is not yours anymore. People fall under different factors and pressures, so do not blame others.

6- Always take care of the brothers and sisters of truth. Be with them always. They will protect you. They are always a beautiful ornament. In good times you will have ease, and in time of difficulty, you will have protection and support.

7- Be strict and careful in choosing your friends.

8- Always be with the truth even against your own life.

9- Don’t indulge in that which is meaningless. Every moment of our life is meaningful- use it to worship Allah subhanawat’ala

10- Don’t ask about that which didn’t happen. You already have enough to deal with, be practical, deal with immediate problems not the future of ghayb.

11- Don’t ask for your need to be fulfilled from someone who wouldn’t like your need to be fulfilled. Try to be self-sufficient as individuals and as an ummah, muslims of early generation were poor but didn’t lower themselves. Always be with dignity.

12- Don’t be neglectful or careless in swearing by the name of Allah. Otherwise, Allah will bring punishment for you.

13- Don’t be in the company of fajaar (those who commit major sins openly and don’t care) You WILL be affected. Your own behavior changes little by little. Be in the company of people who remind you of Allah.

14- Be aware of your enemy. Be careful, alert, and prepared.

15- Remember death. Visit the graveyards, try to be in kushuu’. If you can’t cry, force yourself to. Try to be humble in front of the Creator, the One who gives life and takes it away.

16- Be HUMBLE in acts of obedience to Allah. No one will protect us
but Allah. Seek protection from Allah in Allah.

17- Seek tawbaah. Immediately, be determined, have resolve.

18- Consult in your matters those who have kashiyaah (fear of Allah and always conscious of Him), because those who have kashiyaah are the ones that truly have ilm(knowledge).
