A slogan under which Mumineen are busy doing ohbat for Ashara Mubarakah. These words aren’t just a slogan but they are the words which has poured blood in to the veins of preparation, giving Mumineen the strength to overcome each and every hurdle, weather educational, financial and personal aside in these days to answer the call of dai al Husain(S.A) with
“labbaik ya dai al-allah”
As these days remind us of the greatest sacrifice of Imam Husain (S.A) when enemies tried to constrict him in many ways, specially by depriving him from water and food. But Iman Husain (S.A) even in all those circumstances did not stop from what he intended and succeeded to perform sajda at the time of his shahadat to insure the salvation of those thousands of Mumineen.
Due to Duat Mutlaqeen R.A efforts and guidance specially those made by Al Dai Al Ajal Syedna Mohammad Burhanuddin R.A, today every Mumin mourns and performs matam on Imam Husain(S.A). It is the mission for which he spent his life and once stated, ‘if I succeed in making you shed at least one tear then I consider my task is done’.
Today al Dai al Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) IS guiding Mumineen toward Punctuality in attending those majalis from the second of Moharramul Haram as on that particular day Imam Husain’s horse Zul Janah shopped on the soil of Karbala. The entire sacrifice of Imam Husain(S.A) was for the eternal existence of Islam and Imaan and for the salvation of all Mumineen who will come till qiyamat.
So, how could any Mumin ever forget Imam Husain’s (S.A) sacrifice and the events of Karbala.
So It is decreed upon every Mumins to response the mandate of Al Dai Al Ajal Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS by
“Labbaik Ya Dai al-Allah”
May Allah grant Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin T.U.S strength to do matam and buka of Imam Husain(S.A) in the days of Ashara Mubarakah, and bless him with a long and healthy life. Ameen
It is something like Eating for living. Some people really live to eat while a very few just do the opposite. Blogging the is pretty much fun when you know that there are people somewhere on the planet who are eager to read all the thinking aloud that is being done at the other corner of the world. With zillions of blogs out there the chances of a genuine viewership and a fan club get dimmer to somewhere between a few to nearly nothing. And what would one get anyway from a blog that would really earn you a coffee is a big question pushing further away the thought of earning a living.
I have always concluded and thought of myself writing blah blah blah occurring in my tiny little brain just for the passion of hitting the keys on the laptop and the passion for the feeling that I do have a huge readership somewhere. The mere thought of someone agreeing to your views and reading all the bakwas one has to write, at times even meaningless helps you feel the satisfaction of being a person who has the power of words in within his pen. Ever since childhood I have been fascinated by the thought of having a Penpal and have tried to have a few during my teens but the idea never got its way through the ages due to the pain of traditional posts apart from the fun I had collecting stamps.
Today I could simply define my love for having a blog, though it takes up much of the time wasted behind technical stuff, as being an open letter to any Penpal who would be interested in reading all the popups of my mind and I do eagerly wait for a reply as a comment which when never seen often discourages further writing.
Blogging for a living may not mean earning the bread for me but it can be read as a good opportunity to live the passion of life at times writing lucid views and thoughts that may even be meaningless at times.
Syedna al-Qadi Noman (RA) in his Kitaab of Daaim al-Islam Vol 2 has narrated a beautiful riwayat that fascinates me, and in it I find the aroma of Ikhlas, purity of intent and heart as well as the readiness to sacrifice all will and possessions for the mere khushi of Rasulallah (SA).
No wonder Rasulallah (SA) has been listed as the most influential persons throughout history apart from the spiritual aura to command obedience that he possesses. In a few years Islam emerged to be the most powerfully and widely accepted faith not because of the sword as most shallow minded and uninformed people claim, but because each word of the Prophet of Islam Mohammed al-Mustafa (SA) became a law for Muslims, a code of conduct and a way of life.
In the very first chapter in which Mumineen are encouraged to strive to earn livelihood, Syedna al-Qadi al-Noman relates a riwayat. Rasulallah SA passed by some traders who were called Samasera (middlemen) during those days. Rasulallah (SA) said that I do not call you all Samasera, rather I call you Tujjar (traders). A tajir is fajir, a person who commits immoral and foul actions; and a fajir is in hell fire. On hearing this from Rasulallah (SA), everyone shut down their businesses and shops and went away.
The next day when Rasulallah (SA) passed by the market was closed, he saw no one. To this he inquired as to where everyone was. He was informed that the Muslimeen heard what he said and therefore shut down their businesses. Rasulallah (SA) said, Even today I say the same as yesterday, (that a fajir is in hell fire) except for those who are honest in their transactions.
The riwayat is so fascinating that if we ponder upon it we can notice that Rasulallah (SA) did not tell the Muslimeen to shut down their businesses, but his mere word that trade could lead them to hell fire was taken so seriously that the market place was shut down entirely. Such were the people in obeying the Messenger of Allah. There was no room for a second thought or consideration in their souls except that they had to seek his happiness.
It is a rare thought but many still ponder on asking for a leave or closing their businesses for Ashara Mubarakah for attending the majalis and waaz before time. Everything is secondary to people who are still in the consideration mode, to the mere concept that the requisites of Mohabbat and Walayat for Rasulallah (SA), his Itrat Taherah (AS), and Dai al-Zaman Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) is, that their happiness be sought. The farman of Aqa Maula (TUS) be obeyed and there is no other priority greater than that.
In light of the riwayat above where Muslimeen sacrificed everything just to the happiness of Rasulallah (SA) where there was no farman to shut down worldly affairs it is indeed a thought provoking stand for every Mumin to weigh his own position in mohabbat for Imam Husain (AS) and his Dai. Whereas Maulana al-Muqaddas (TUS) and Syedna Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) have done farman that it is compulsory on every Mumin to attend Ashara Mubarakah from the first waaz on wards on time.
For us there is no looking back. Labbaik Ya Husain, Labbaik Ya Daiyallah! Our pledge is to our souls and to the requisite of our mohabbat for our Maula (TUS). Have you done your pledge?
May Allah Subhanahu bless our beloved Maula Syedna Abu Jafarus Sadiq Aali Qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) a long life for the buka and matam of Imam Husain (AS). Ameen
