Challenge to ISIS Through Poetry

Challenge to ISIS

Saja Hua Hai Maidan-e-Jung Phir Se Aaj
Hum Bhi Jihad-e-Awwal Ke Liye Raazi Hain

Badhao Tadad-e-Fauj Apni Abhi Or Aye Zalimo
Bhari Tum Sab Par Humara Ek Haadi Hai

-Mustejab (Rajat Abbas Kirmani, India)

तफकीरी जमात आईएसआईएस को चुनौती शायरी के जरिए

सजा हुआ है मैदान-ए-जंग फिर से आज
हम भी जिहाद-ए-अव्वल के लिए राज़ी हैं

बढ़ाओ तादाद-ए-फौज अपनी अभी और ऐ ज़ालिमों
भारी तुम सब पर हमारा एक हादी है

Shia Should not Insult Personalities of Other Religions : Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi

मोहर्रम में दूसरे धर्म के महापुरुषों का निरादर न करेंः आयतुल्लाह मकारेम शिराजी

शिया मोमनीन खासकर मोहर्रम के दौरान सुन्नियों समेत तमाम धर्मों के महापुरुषों का ध्यान रखें और उनके

सम्मान को कोई चोट न पहुंचाएं। ग्रैंड आयतुल्लाह नासेर मकारेम शिराजी ने यह बात कुम (ईरान) में

रिवॉल्यूशनरी गार्ड्स को संबोधित करते हुए कही। उन्होंने खास बात यह कही कि शिया-सु्न्नी एकजुटता से ही

आतंकवाद को हराया जा सकता है। अहलैबेत के ज्ञान को इस तरह फैलाना है कि वहाबी गुट अपने मकसद में

कामयाब न होने पाएं...यह वहाबी गुट ही शिया-सुन्नी मतभेद को बढ़ाकर अपना मकसद पूरा करना चाहता है,

हमें इन ताकतों को अपनी एकजुटता से हराना है। जब हमने ईरान से अमेरिकियों के पिट्ठू शाह रजा पहलवी

हुकूमत को उखाड़ कर फेंक दिया तो ये वहाबी या तकफीरी जमात हैं क्या...

During a meeting with a group of eulogists from the Revolutionary Guards in Qom, Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi discussed the role the uprising of Imam Husayn (A) has played throughout history but warned Shi’ite mourners of the tragic impact their words can have if they insult the personalities of our Sunni brethren.

Referring to the recent celebration of the event of Mubahilah, Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi said that it is clear that the verse of Mubahilah in the Quran [3:61] refers to the lofty status of the Ahlul-Bayt (A), saying: “This is agreed upon my both Shi’ite and Sunni commentators.”

In regards to the upcoming month of Muharram, where Shi’ite Muslims mourn the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (A), the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi pointed to the narration from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (A) wherein the sixth Imam stated: “Surely, there is a burning heat in the hearts of the believers with respect to the killing of Husayn that will never cool down!” and said: “Every year, we see this heat with our own eyes, it will never fade and will stay forever.”

His Eminence called on preachers to take proper advantage of poetry but warned them to use credible sources and authoritative books and stay away from weak narrations and falsifying history when composing poetry and also warned them from offending the dignity and lofty statuses of the Imams of the Ahul-Bayt (A), following: “Poetry should reflect the words that have been expressed by the great scholars and preachers of the Master of the Martyrs (A) and they must be identical to reality.”

Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi emphasized that mourning ceremonies and sermons be constructive and have a profound effect on the believers, saying that the event and the culture of Ashura has shaken the thrones of tyrants and oppressors. It was a major influence on Imam Khomeini (RA), who saw the victory of Islamic Revolution in the light of the revolution of Imam Husayn (A). People in their millions came out to face the unjust Shah of Iran in mass demonstrations after holding mourning ceremonies in Muharram and Safar. They were able to overthrow the evil Pahlavi monarchy because of their love for Imam Husayn (A).

He emphasized that unity between Shi’ites and Sunnis is the most important element to address blind extremism and terrorism. He added that the knowledge of the Ahlul-Bayt (A) must be propagated in a respectable manner because Takfiris want to ignite the fire of strife between Shi’ites and Sunnis. He strongly emphasized that Shi’ites must never insult the sanctities of other religions during their mourning ceremonies because the result of their insults will only lead to the shedding of Shi’ite blood in different parts of the world.

Petition : Stop Execution of Shia Cleric

                                                      Momneens Please sign Petition...

                                                        Click on this to Sign the Petition

                                                                Heavy Protest in Qatif

"Stop Unjust Execution of Shia Cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr by Saudi Government, and Immediate Release Him from Imprisonment."

Al-Nimr is one of Saudi Arabia’s most prominent and respected Shia clerics, who for the past 10 years has been an ardent critic of the kingdom’s autocratic rulers. He has consistently championed the democratic rights of ordinary Saudis, defended the thousands of political prisoners rotting away in Saudi dungeons, and has called for the end of absolute rule under the self-styled House of Saud monarchy.
                                                   Protest in Qatif
                                              Women Protest in Qatif
In particular, Sheikh al-Nimr has highlighted the chronic injustice against the Saudi Shia population, who form a majority in the country’s oil-rich Eastern Province but who have endured decades of poverty and oppression under the Wahhabi House of Saud.
At no time in his years of campaigning for justice has Sheikh Al-Nimr advocated violence. He is on record for explicitly condemning violence and has urged followers to use the “roar of the word” to challenge Saudi despotism.
In other words, his only “crime” is that Sheikh al-Nimr has eloquently exposed the oppression and corruption of Saudi rule under a dynastic, backward family.
He has also denounced the illegal occupation of Bahrain by Saudi forces since March 2011, when they were sent into the neighbouring island state to crush a pro-democracy movement there and bolster the Al Khalifa regime, which is a surrogate of the House of Saud. Western patronage has also been a lynchpin of the Al Khalifa dictatorship in Bahrain.
In July 2012, al-Nimr was ambushed by Saudi military police while travelling in a car near his native Qatif in Eastern Province. He was shot four times in the leg. The Saudi authorities claimed that the incident was a shoot-out - a claim that the cleric’s family strenuously deny and which is wholly inconsistent with his peaceful political activism. Of course it is a smear, aimed at justifying his subsequent persecution.
The Saudis also claim that al-Nimr is a “fifth columnist” for Shia Iran - another risible slander - aimed at obscuring the real nature of massive injustice in the oil-rich kleptocratic kingdom.
Now, after months of being tortured in solitary confinement and denied any legal defence, the cleric is to be executed.

Millions Expected to Visit Najaf on Eid-e-Ghadeer (Eid Al-Qadir)

                                                             The holy mausoleum of Imam Ali (AS) at Najaf  in Iraq

The holy mausoleum of Imam Ali (AS) in Najaf, Iraq, is expected to receive some 2 million pilgrims on Eid al-Qadir, which falls on Monday.

The Astan (custodianship) of the holy shrine has made all the preparations for receiving the devotees of the first Imam (AS) on the auspicious occasion, Bilad News quoted Ali Khazir Haji, a member of the Astan’s executive board, as saying.

According to Osama al-Baghdadi, another official of the Astan, different sections of the holy shrine have been adorned with over 30,000 flowers of different kinds delivered from Iran.  

Meanwhile, Miqdad al-Mousawi, an official with Najaf Police Department, said a special security plan is going to be carried out in the following days to ensure security for the pilgrims. 

Eid al-Qadir, which falls on Monday, October 13, this year, is the commemoration of a historic day in Islam.

14 centuries ago, on the 18th of month of Zi al-Hajjah, on his way back from his last Hajj pilgrimage, Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) received a revelation from God, ordering him to halt the pilgrims at a pond called Qadir Khum, and to designate Ali ibn Abi-Taleb (AS) as his successor in guiding and ruling Muslims.

This day is celebrated by many Muslims around the world and many Shia Muslims go on pilgrimage to the holy city of Najaf to celebrate the occasion. (IQNA)

क्यों मनाया जाता है ईद-ए-गदीर

नजफ (इराक) में ईद-ए-गदीर (14 अक्तूबर 2014) पर दुनियाभर से 20 लाख लोगों के इकट्ठा होने के संकेत हैं। नजफ में इमाम हजरत अली (अलै.) का रौजा है। ईद-ए-गदीर वह दिन है जब हज पर जाते हुए पैगंबर हजरत मोहम्मद साहब ने अल्लाह से मिले संदेश पर काफिले को रोका और वहां जमाकर लोगों को बताया कि मेरे बाद अली ही मेरे उत्तराधिकारी होंगे। इतिहास में यह तारीख इसी नाम से जानी जाती है। अल्लाह ने एक आकाशवाणी के जरिए यह संदेश पैगंबर के पास भेजा था।

Wahabi Flag seen at Hajj, Arafat, Saudi Arabia

A pilgrim has carried the flag of the ISIL terrorist group on the Plain of Arafat in Saudi Arabia during the Hajj rituals, media reports say.

According to Iraq’s Alsumaria satellite TV network, social media, especially Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, posted photos on Saturday showing a pilgrim carrying the ISIL flag during the Hajj rites on Jabal ar-Rahmah mountain on the Plain of Arafat on Friday.

आईएसआईएल के नाम से सामने आए वहाबी आतंकियों के झंडे को शुक्रवार को हज के दौरान सऊदी अरब के अराफात पहाड़ी पर देखा गया। अगर सऊदी अरब वाकई आईएसआईएल के खिलाफ है तो इतनी कड़ी सुरक्षा के बावजूद वहाबियों का झंडा इतनी पवित्र जगह पर कैसे पहुंच गया...

The Saudi television aired footage of the pilgrim with the ISIL flag for just a few seconds before it stopped broadcasting the video.

This comes as Saudi Arabia and its former intelligence chief Prince Bandar Bin Sultan have played a leading role in the formation of the ISIL terrorist group.

The ISIL controls large areas of Syria’s east and north. The group sent its militants into Iraq in June, seizing large parts of land straddling the border between Syria and Iraq.

The West and its regional allies, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, are reportedly giving financial and military support to the militants.

Nauha on Hazrat Muslim Bin Aqeel

Famous Poet Mirza Dabeer paying tribute to First Shaheed of Karbala Hazrat Muslim Bin Aqeel...Tough poets not write enough on Hazrat Muslim's shahdat, but this nauha still reminds us that shahdat...

हज़रत मुस्लिम बिन अकील करबला की राह में कुर्बान होने वाले पहले शहीद थे। उन पर शायर कम ही अपने कलाम लिखते हैं। लेकिन मिर्जा दबीर ने दो सदी पहले यह कलाम लिखा तो आज भी उतना ही पुरअसर है...
