1. The holy messenger of God had mentioned the names of all the twelve Imams as informed by Gabriel from God .He had also informed that Imam Hasan & Imam Husain (A.S) are two chiefs of all the Youth in Paradise.” Therefore, their enemies and those who love and follow their enemies will not be with him in Heaven.

True Victory is the Victory in the sight of God. The Imams act according to the intention of God, and do nothing to displease Him. Hazrate Yahya(A.S)and Zacharia (A.S)were killed by their enemies ,hence like Imam Husain (A.S)they shall be in Paradise. So Imam Husain (A.S) was victorious in the battle of Karbala. God says” Don’t consider those who are martyred in the way of God as dead but they are really alive and are provided sustenance from their Lord (S3:A169).

The name of Imam Husain (A.S) can never be erased from the heart of his lovers. Eventually God will definitely avenge his martyrdom through Imam Mahdi (A.F) the promised saviour.

2. Imam Husain (A.S) was invited by a majority of citizens of Kufa, so he left for Kufa with his family, children, kith& kin & his faithful lovers & followers, as a duty to teach the True Islam as revealed by God to His best and last messenger Mohammad (S.A); True Islam was deviated by those who preferred the charms of this world, power and pelf, to God’s promised Paradise in the Hereafter. They preferred today’s egg to a full grown leghorn hen in future which lays 300 eggs per year.

Zainab (S.A) through her fiery speech and logical words played a key role in keeping the tragedy of Karbala & the True Islam alive to this day. She quoted the Aayat from the holy Quran “Let not those who disbelieve think that Our granting them respite is better for their souls; We grant them respite (مهلت) that they may add to their sins and they shall have a disgraceful punishment. (S3:A178).

Those who give preference to charms of this enticing world for a short span of lifetime are blind to blessings and perfect bliss & happiness of a never ending lifetime. God never breaches His promise.

3. Hazrate Zainab (S.A)has said:” I have seen nothing but beauty in Imam Husain’s performance”(of all duties).Imam Husain (A.S) was unparalleled and excellent in his test &trial by God; whereas performance of Yazid & his supporters was tyrannical towards Ahlebayt of the holy Messenger (S.A) and God has declared in the holy Quran :’Indeed those who vex God and His Messenger are denounced by God in the world here & in the Hereafter and God has disgraceful punishment ready for them. Those who are responsible for vexation to faithful men &women undeservedly, they are certainly guilty of false accusation and manifest sin.” (S33.A57-58).

After the martyrdom of Imam Husain (A.S) along with his beloved son AliAkbar(A.S)&his 6 months old baby AliAsghar(A.S),Yazid declared, “I have taken revenge against Bani Hashem since my Grandfather AbuSufyan was defeated in the battle of Badr by Mohammad(S.A) &Ali (A.S).”This statement exposes the faith of Yazid(L.A)

4. Imam Ali (A.S) was blamed by Moaviah (L.A) as responsible for the murder of Osman the third Khalifa, who had strong links with the Bani Omayyah. When there was rebellion against Osman, Talha &Zobair joined the rebellion and Osman was murdered, whereas Imam Ali (A.S) sent Imam Hasan &Imam Husain (A.S) to defend Osman . After the murder of Osman, the majority of people elected the first Imam Ali (A.S) as the fourth khalifa(perhaps influenced by hadith-e- Ghadir).

Moaviyah was a crafty & cunning worldly politician. He falsely blamed Ali (A.S) for this murder, so as to become the fifth Khalifah .He appointed his son Yazid (L.A) as the sixth Khalifa and was therefore responsible for martyrdom of Imam Husain (A.S) as well as Imam Hasan & Imam Ali(A.S) in the past .Enemies of Imams are condemned by God. Please see the references in notes2&3.

5. Allamah Iqbal has written:

‘When khilafat separated from the guidance of the holy Quran, lethal poison was poured into the mouth of Freedom, in other words , people were duped & deprived of Liberty i.e. enslaved to serve the interests of worldly politicians ; people sold their eternal blissful life in the Hereafter for the sake of this temporal life by supporting the khalifas , who misinterpreted the holy Quran and deceived them to fight against the holy Imams. But Muhammad bin Abubakr was not deceived, he did not follo

w his father Abubakr nor joined the battle of Jamal(جنگ جمل )waged by his sister Aiyesha(ام المومن?ن )against the Imam of the time Ali (A.S.)The holy messenger(S.A)has said :One who dies without cognizance of the Imam of his time, dies like one in the age of Ignorance (like Idolaters)

The self made khalifas were defeated in the major war (jehade akbar) by their satanic evil spirit (نفس اماره) whereas, the twelve Imams were victorious against Nafse Ammarah in ‘Jahade Akbar’ and had thereby become Sinless (Ma’soom) by their own freewill and were True Khalifas appointed by God.

The holy messenger had said “There will be twelve Khalifas after me and all of them will be Quraish i.e. the tribe of the holy messenger (S.A)”. All the twelve Imams belong to the tribe of Quraish and they were nominated by God through the angel of revelation Gabriel .Other Khalifas were not appointed by God but were either chosen by people or elected by untrustworthy council or were inheritors like monarchs. All these Khalifas are far greater than twelve in numbers.

If people are vicious they will chose a villain as their ruler and reject the divinely appointed Khalifa (the sinless Imam). That’s the defect of democracy. King Solomon&Zulqharnain were autocratic (not democratic) and God was pleased with them for their obedience. The ideal government of justice of God is that which will be established by the promised savior obedient to God (not Satan). This Government will be for the people and not by the people but by Imam Mahdi(A.F) assisted by Jesus(A.S).

Moreover democracy is not a divine commandment even if approved by all mankind. Evil Might though in majority (disobedient to God) is not at all right. The sinless Imam Hussain (A.S) was the divinely appointed Khalifa and in spite of all atrocities which resulted in his martyrdom and martyrdom of all his supporters, God was Patient ((الصبار but when the promised respite for Satan (Iblis) will be over, Imam Mahdi (A.S) &Jesus (A.S) will emerge by the Will of God & avenge against all the tyranny & oppression of the tyrant Muslim rulers &all their supporters up to this day.

6. Imam Husain (A.S) as well as other Imams (A.S)were like thorns in the eyes of their enemies (the usurpers) as can be seen from the following incident. Motavakkal an Abbaside Khalifa, coerced Ibne Sikkit, who was a very learned person to accept to be a tutor for his two sons. One day Motavakkal asked Ibne Sikkit.

“Don’t you think my two sons Moataz & Moayyad are better than Hasan & Husain?” Ibne Sikkit replied to him, ” By God! Qanbar, the servant of Ali Ibne Abi Taleb, is better than you and your two sons.”Motavakkal was infuriated & ordered that the entire tongue of that expert should be cut off. Ibne Sikkit was martyred in this way.

7. Imam Husain’s revolution is everlasting as he rose against all satanic qualities which deviate men from the straight path of God.e.g.1) Pride & Ambition for worldly power & position by hypocrites 2) Avarice & love for worldly possessions without caring for the Hereafter 3) Prejudice against those who obey God by following His Messengers & Imams (not Satan) 4)Wrath and anger against mankind instead of guiding them.

All Imams are alike; any of them would act exactly like Imam Husain (A.S) under similar circumstances. Imams (A.S) consider:” Every day as Ashoora and Every Land as Karbobala.” When people attain perfect wisdom they will banish all satanic traits mentioned above and shall discover Yazid and Shimr of their times, no matter in which land and make that day like Ashoora by following the foot steps of Imam Husain (A.S).

Then people will no longer be worse than animals and all men &women shall attain human dignity and salvation by obedience to God. Those who martyred Imam Husain (A.S)& his companions were Muslims but all their Salaat and good deeds were to please themselves and not God. Majority of Muslims ,Shias &Sunnies, love & respect Imam Husain(A.S) & name their children by the name of Husain therefore they should all be united and follow Imam Husain(A.S).

8. God does not commit a particle weight of injustice .but all injustice is committed by human beings e.g. human sacrifice at altars in temples of Hindus was tyrannical. Millions of Muslims sacrifice lambs, cows and camels to commemorate sacrifice of a lamb created miraculously by God to prevent sacrifice of Ismail son of Abraham (A.S).God is not bloodthirsty.

Imam Husain (A.S) refuted allegiance to Moaviah and Yazid, who were hypocrites & greedy for power they and not God martyred the Imam. God, and His messenger were extremely grieved by this martyrdom. and vengeance will begin after emergence of Imam Mahdi(A.F). Imam Husain (A.S) became King of Martyrs by perpetuating God’s universal divine religion.
