13 Golden Sayings of Imam Hussain A.S..
Awesome Sayings of Imam Hussain A.S..
1 - How can a thing the existence of which is dependent
on you be taken as a proof for your existence?
Is there anything more evident than your "self"
disclose you? Are you hidden to need a guide to find you?
Surely you are not. Are you far-away to need your footprints
to find you? Surely you are not! Blind may the eyes be
which do not see you watching and guarding your "self"
(Arafa prayer; Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 98 , P. 226)
2 - He who has you , has everything , and he who has deprived himself
of you is the poorest in the world. Loser is the one who
chooses and be content with anyone or anything
other than you.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 98 , P. 228)
3 - Never will be salvaged the people who win the consent of
the creature at the cost of the dissatisfaction of the creator.
(Maktal Khawarazmi , Vol. 1 , P. 239)
4 - No one will feel secured on the Resurrection Day except
those who feared God in this world.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 192)
5 - The Almighty God said : "The believing men and the believing women ,
they are guardians of each other , enjoin good and forbid evil.
"God attaches primary importance to enjoining good and forbidding evil
" as a duty for men and women. For he knows that if it were fulfilled
all the other duties , easy or hard , will be accomplished.
That is because "enjoining good and forbidding evil"
is a call for Islam , it regains the rights of the oppressed
and opposes tyrants.
(Tohaf-al- Uqoul , P. 237)
6 - O' people , the Messenger of God said : Whoever sees
an aggressive tyrant legalizes the forbiddens of God ,
breeches divine laws , opposes the tradition of the Prophet ,
oppresses the worshippers of God , but does not concede his
opposition to God in word or in deed , surely Allah
will place that tyrant ( in the Hell )
where he deserves.
(Maktal Khawarazmi , Vol. 1 , P. 234)
7 - People are slaves to the world , and as long as they live
favorable and comfortable lives , they are loyal to religious
principles. However , at hard times , the times of trials ,
true religious people are scarce.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 117)
8 - One who pursues a goal through sinful ways ,
will ironically distance himself from that goal ,
and will approach what he was afraid of.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 120)
9 - Don't you see that the right is not conveyed and
the wrong is not prohibited. Let believers wish to die
and righteously meet their God.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 117)
10 - To me , death is nothing but happiness, and living
under tyrants nothing but living in a hell.
(Tohaf-al- Uqoul , P. 245)
11 - Your difficulties are worse than others , because you were
deprived of the rank of the scholars - considering your
legitimacy and merit -(These difficulties are) because
administering the affairs of the society and conveying the ( religious )
rules must be done by scholars who truly believe in God
and know what is permitted and what is forbidden by God.
But you were deprived from this position and rank
for you withdrew from (supporting) the truth.
You changed the tradition of the prophet ,
despite the clear and disclosed proofs. If you had withstood and
were patient against the torture and annoyance ( of the tyrants )
for the sake of God , then the divine affairs would have stayed
in your hands , and you were the ones to whom would be referred.
But you made the tyrants dominant on you and left the divine affairs
in their hands, while they shamelessly do the forbidden and
notoriously live a licentious life. Your (fear) from death and
attachment to this world have encouraged the tyrants
to establish dominance over you.
(Tohaf-al- Uqoul , P. 238)
12 - O' God! Surely you know that whatever we did was not a competition
to gain worldly positions and not for the worthless physical
attractions of the world. But to show the signs of religious ways
and to remove corruption from your lands , so that
the oppressed feel secured and act according to your traditions
(Tohaf-al- Uqoul, P. 239)
13 - I never revolted in vain, as a rebel or as a tyrant,
but I rose seeking reformation for the nation of my grandfather
Mohammad PBUH I intend to enjoin good and forbid evil,
to act according to the traditions of my grandfather,
and my father Ali Ibn Abi-Talib AS.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44, P. 329)
