Beautiful Words From And About Imam Husain (a.s)

 Immortal words From Imam Husain (a.s) 

“O God, what did he find who lost you, and what did he lose who found you?”


“Some people worship God to get His gifts; this is the worship of the merchants.  Some worship Him to avoid His punishment; this is the worship of the slaves.  Some worship Him solely to thank Him; this is the worship of the free!”


“Death with dignity is better than life with humiliation.”


“O son, beware of doing bad things to a person who does not have a supporter except Allah.”


On his way to Karbala, “This world has changed and its good things have gone. Nothing has remained from it except a thing as little as the bottom of a cup and a mean life that is like a poisonous grazing.  Have you not seen that the right is forgotten and the evil is not forbidden…People are certainly the slaves of this world; religion is but water on their tongues. They turn it wherever it is good for their world.  If they are tested by bad happenings, there will be few truly religious ones.”


What renowned People have said about Imam Husain (a.s)

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 any time 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, 1919, p.227)


Dr. K. Sheldrake: “Of that gallant group, everybody knew that the enemy around them were implacable, and were not only ready to fight, but to kill. Denied even water for the children, they remained very thirsty under the burning sun and hot sands, however not one stopped for a moment. Husain (a.s) marched with his small group, not to glory, not to power of wealth, but to a supreme sacrifice, and every member bravely faced the greatest bad things happily.”


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


Thomas Carlyle (Scottish historian and essayist): “The best lesson which we get from the tragedy of Cerebella is that Husain (a.s) and his companions were real believers in God. They showed that the number of enemies is not important when it comes to the truth and the falsehood. The victory of Husain (a.s), despite his minority, is wonderful to me!”


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


Mahatma Gandhi (Indian political and spiritual leader): “I learnt from Hussein (a.s) how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”


Charles Dickens (English novelist): “If Husain (a.s) had fought for power and money…then I do not understand why his sister, wife, and children accompanied him!? So, I believe that he sacrificed just for Islam.”
