Amongst all his titles, hewas also known as one of themasters of the youth of paradise.Wehaveestablishedthismagazine,titled“Hussein Revivalism”in orderto realistically portrait Islam as waspresented by the prophet of Allah(pbuh) and his progeny (pbut).Imam Hussein was a part of theprophet’s progeny. He sacrificedhis life and the lives of his family,close friends and followers for thesake of Islam. The purpose of thissacrifice was to revive the freedomof humanity, to reestablish justiceand free the oppressed peoplefrom an unjust regime.Since Imam Hussein’s (peace beuponhim)martyrdom,hisfollowersand lovers began visiting his Holytomb in Karbala (Iraq) forever.Haidar Muhammed

It was rectangularin shape with its length (14)and its width (10) knots. Theywere amazed when they saw itbecause of it did not decay.That wooden plate underwentseveral investigations and theanalysis completed in the year1952.The plate was from the shipof the prophet Noah (pbuh). Restof the Noahs ship was destroyedexcept this plate. It did not decaybecause of the inscription ofsome letters that dates back tothe ancient language.In 1953, the Soviet governmentformed a committee that consistsof ancient languages experts andscientists, and they were:1 .Sawlot Naoev, professor atMoscow University.2 .Tanmova Kourov, professor ofLinguistics at Kevenzo College.3 .De Racon, professor ofArcheology at Lenin institute.4 .Mr. Taumol Goru, Teacher,Cafezud College5 .Major Cottor, Stalin College.6 .Mr. M.

The time dimensionprovides it with the elements ofcontinuity and renewal.Accordingly,theworldtodayneedsthe light of enlightenment to theImam Hussein (pbuh) more thanbefore. The modern ignorantly ismore and more violent than thefirst ignorantly. Ignorance is thesame as the first, but with moderntechnology.Wars that comes on the harvestand kill most of the humanbeing in general and the kinds ofcorruption and injustice in variouslevels and the infringement ofrights at all levels.

  14. 14. Articles16Hussein RevivalismSecularism is defined in theWebster dictionary as: «Asystemofdoctrinesandpracticesthat rejects any form of religiousfaith and worship» or «The beliefthat religion and ecclesiasticalaffairs should not enter into thefunction of the state especiallyinto public education”.Thereisnodoubtthatsecularismcontradicts Islam in every aspect.They are two different pathsthat never meet; choosingone means rejecting the other.Hence, whoever chooses Islamhas to reject secularism.-First, secularism makes lawfulwhat Allah has made unlawful.The Rule of Allah (Shari`ah) iscompulsory and has basic lawsand regulations that cannot bechanged. Some of these lawsare concerned with the acts ofworship, the relations betweenmen and women, etc.What is the position with regardto these laws?The (Riba) (interest on money),it is the basis of all financialtransactionsinseculareconomies.On the contrary, Allah says (2.278): «O you who believe, fearAllah and leave what comes fromRiba if you are believers. If youdo not do so, then wait for a warfrom Allah and His Messenger”.Second ;Secularism is based onseparating religion from all theaffairs of this life and hence, itrules by law and regulationsother than Allahs laws. Hence,secularism rejects Allahs ruleswith no exception and prefersregulationsotherthanAllahsandHis Messengers. In fact, manysecularists claim that Allahs lawsmight have been suitable for thetime they were revealed but arenow outdated.As a result, most of the lawsgoverning the daily affairs of lifein the countries ruled by secularsystems contradict Islam. Fromtheabove,thestatusofsecularismand its relation to Islam are clear.But the ignorance about theIslamic truth is still dominatingthe Muslims mind. Most secularsystems repeat slogans like «noreligion in politics and no politicsin religion» or «religion is forAllah, and the state is for thepeople.» Such sayings portraytheir view of Islam as a religionto be practiced in the mosqueonly, and that it should not beallowed to rule life outside themosque.Furthermore,theytrytodeceive people with democraticslogans like «personal freedom»and «people governing people.»That means that people comefirst and no place is made for theruling of Allah.balagh.com
  15. 15. Articles17Hussein RevivalismAmong the most importantillnesses of our time is the ‘acuteand chronic depression’, whichis caused by the repeated failureto achieve goals, with theresulting desperation. It is clearthat man can only achieve partof his aspirations. Therefore, hemay experience an involuntaryrelapse because of that, with theaccompanying psychological andphysical symptoms.The solution to this problemdoes not lie in achieving all ourgoals, something no man everaccomplished,butinlearninghowto put failure behind our backsand start again. This, however,needs special knowledgeDesperation is sometimes relatedto ‘life goals’. In other times, itis related to ‘the divine Mercy’.The first kind deprives man of histransient happiness; the seconddeprives him of his eternalhappiness. Our scholars havedeemed desperation of Allah’sMercy to be a mortal sin. Becauseman needs comfort in bothworlds, it is necessary that we getrid of both kinds of desperation.Encountering the first failure isone of the causes of despair.The man who does not have theforbearance and the capabilityto contain crises will back upfacing the first crisis and will notre-try to enter life’s arena. This isthe result of living in a luxuriousenvironment, which encouragesman to be dependant on othersAs for giving up hope in Allah’sMercy-which is the main part oftoday’s sermon-we have this tosay:Ifmanreachesthisdangerousstage, he will lose the ability tochange anything in his life, whichis what Satan needs to keep himdisobedient until the end of hislife. Hence, the Koran’s saying,{Of Allah’s comfort no one shoulddespair, excepting the people ofthe unbelievers}!When the genuine repentantreturns to Allah, he will go fastin his motion. The awarenessof his black history will motivatehim to make a better record andto compensate for the time lostin ignorance. It is known thatrefrainingfromdoingmisdeedsinonestagewillgivemanthepowerto refrain from doing misdeeds inthe future stages, because it willcondition his soul to refuse thecall of desire and caprice.It is wrong to disparage thosewho sincerely repent becauseof their history in disobedience.It is known that by becominga Moslem, past misdeeds aredisregarded, the repentant andthe one who did not do misdeedsare alike, asking for forgivenesseliminates great sins and thatvenial sins are no more venial ifpersistently repeated.How to Bring Back Hope toLife?
  16. 16. Religion18Hussein RevivalismMany terms enterd to Islamicreligion some of them areWestren and some are otherMuslims. It leds to the mixingof ideas and thoughts. soislamic thoughts accused ofunilateralism. If they exposed toscience and jurisprudence AhluAl-byt (pbut) they will look at thespecificdimensionsofintellectual.I think they are running in rightway and retreat from many of thenegative thoughts. They havebeen charged with Islam.We will mention to version talkabout the pluralism to ImamHussein (pbuh)the story is as followsaccording to Al-Hussein (pbuh)said: I heard Prophet (pbuh) say(best works after the prayer isentering pleasure to the heart ofbeliever who has no sin).Imam Hussein said: I saw a boywas eat with a dog so I told himthat.Jews manservant was hearinghim (Imam Hussein)and said:oh prophets son, I am sad and Iask pleasure because my own isJewish and I want to depart him(he want to get his freedom)After that imam Hussein went tothe Jewish and gave him twohundreds dinars price of themanservant.Jewish: I donated you the boysir and this garden for him andpay back the money to you asgift.Imam Hussein: I donated youthe moneyJewish: I have accepted themoney, and gave him (the boy)the moneyImam Hussein: The boy is freeingand donated all for himJewishswifesaid:IhadconvertedIslam and donated my bowery tomy husbandJewish said: I converted to Islamand I gave her this house.Moral lesson is obvious anddoes not deserve comment, Icomment on this story from theother aspects, namely:The first aspect: the type of thepleasurethatenteredtotheheartof believer by any Muslim is tobe insured is no sin, and thisis important because there aremany who complement in orderto satisfy and pleasure of othersby the principles of Islam so heget sins because of thisThe second aspect: it is veryimportanttoshowthattheJewishstory of living a happy life underIslam, so he has Muslims boy toserveandnon-objectionfromtheIslamic government at that time.Many Jews have Muslimsmenservants, particularly SalmanMohammadi and how theMessenger of Allah (swt) free himfrom the Jewish owner.The third aspect: Offer of ImamHussein (pbuh) to purchase theJewish slave. He did not forcehim emancipation without theprice, as he did not imposeImam Hussein for the purchaseprice to the slave. the two sideswas clear that the pluralism andnon-cancellation of the otherwere practiced in the Islamicgovernment and that he does notdeal with the embarrassment inthe interest of Jews to Islam, maynot deny the Jewish religion.Imam Ali (pbuh) Says: if I get thepermission I will ruled the peopleof the Torah by their holy bookand the people of the bible bytheir book and the people of holyQuran by their holy book.This speech is clear that theJewish and Christian legislationto regulate the lives of the Jewishand Christian books and ImamAli (pbuh) did not cancel it, butpassed from his Speach. Islamremainsthebest,andthatAliwhowas walking with a Jew in theway. He was complement Jewishin his belief when he arrived atthe Jewishs place, he said to
  17. 17. Religion19Hussein RevivalismImam Ali you want to kufa.Imam Ali: yesJewish: we pass kufaImam Ali: that is our morals tokeep our guest to the door ofhis home. The Jewish wonderedfrom this moral then he decicedto become muslim . This meansthat the Jews had been living inthe Muslim community with thefull enjoyment.HeretheMuslims,especiallythosein western countries must beexplaining the principles of Islamand control the balance of thenon-waiver on the principles ofIslam. Vigorous is unacceptable,The fourth aspect: the nature ofthe Jews and the Christians whowere at the time of certain moralsthat are different from what existsin this time So if we act today,with the Jews or Christians todayas the disposal of Ahlu Al-bayt(p) will entered Islam, we thinknot, but at least we will ensurethem the evils of evil withoutgood persons as the Jewishand Christian communities arenot abandoned from charactersconsidered a moderate Islam intoequity.What a difference between theideas of bin Laden , Zawahiri andWahhabi and the idea of AhluAlbayt (pbut) in the direction ofother sects.
  18. 18. Articles20Hussein RevivalismIslam is a religion that cameafter Judaism, Christianity, etc.Sometimes people of other faithsask this question: How is Islamrelated to the other religionspreceding it? In this respect, ourresponse is simple.Allah, in His infinite Justice andMercy, sent His Prophets to guidethe people to Allah, to showthem not only how to worshipGod but also how to live. Thisguidance started from the timeof Adam. Through the Prophetsa Divine constitution was sentthat the people could follow andattain salvation. After Adam, fivesuch constitutions were sent byGod, through Noah, Abraham,Moses, Jesus and Muhammad(Peace Be Upon Them All). Eachof these Prophets abrogatedthe constitution that had beenfollowed up to his time andpresented the world with a newconstitution. The other Prophetsthat came in between had beensent to revive the constitutions.For the example, the Prophetscame after Noah revived Noah’sconstitution until Abrahaim cameand presented the world with anew constitution, abrogating theconstitution of Noah.The religions brought bydifferent Prophets were givendifferent names like Judaism,Christianity, etc., and Islam is thename of the religion that wasbrought by Prophet Muhammadwho born in(17 rabaia Al-wal) tosalve the world from disbelieves.Judaism was the path to salvationtill the coming of Jesus whobrought Christianity. Anyonefollowing Judaism after thecoming of Christianity was noton the right path any more. Thesame way, Christianity was thepathtosalvationtillthecomingofMuhammad who brought Islam.Anyone following Christianityafter the coming of Islam wasnot on the right path any more.Now comes one question: Whydo Muslims believe that ProphetMuhammad (PBUH) is the lastProphet of Allah and Islam is thelast path of guidance? The reasonis simple.

Ethical21Hussein RevivalismIs it permissible to steal from the unbelievers in their countries, or defraud them as theythemselves do?Is it permissible to have sexual intercourse with a woman, from amongst the unbelievers orthe People of the Book, without a marriage contract, noting that their respective country isin a state of war, directly or indirectly, against Muslims?A person has entered a country as a visitor and his passport was stamped that he was notallowed to work. If he works illegally and gets the money <under the table>, is it halal?What is the ruling on saying assalaamu [alaikum] (Islamic salutation, meaning peace bewith you) to the People of the Book or unbelievers? Also, is it permissible to send themseasonal greetings, such as on Christmas?Is it permissible for a Muslim to give false information to government departments in Europeto gain some financial or abstract benefits, through proper channels?It is not permissible to steal from their private and public property, neither cause any damage to suchproperty, since the said acts could tarnish the reputation of Islam and Muslims in general. Notwithstandingthe above, it is not permissible, for it amounts to treachery and breach of implicit trust, when applying forentry visa or residence. Treachery and breach of trust directed against anybody is haraam.It is not permissible because it is lying; what has been mentioned in the question does not fall within itsjustifications.If the visa was granted against an undertaking that the person should not engage in any sort ofemployment during the period of his stay in the country, his infringement of the undertaking is haraam.However, this should not deny him the wages for the work; it is permissible that he has the right of disposalover it as he deems fit.It is not permissible.There is no harm in initiating the salutation, albeit makrooh (undesirable act) except out of necessity,under whose remit comes urf. Responding to their salutation should be by uttering [the word] alaik (withyou). There is no harm in greeting them on their occasions.
  20. 20. Beliefs22Hussein Revivalism«Creation of God, the pattern onwhich He has made mankind;there is no change in the workof God. That is the standardreligion, but most amongmankind do not understand.»Holy Quran (30:30)They claim that ‘God’ is dead.They should have said that‘gods’are dead. The confusion ariseswhen false ‘gods’ are identifiedas God.An atheist astronaut oncegleefullyjokedthathewenthighabove in the space but couldnot see the god. So, here is theconfusion: the poor soul did notknow that God is not a ‘body’to be seen or found in a ‘place’.His joke just confirmed the beliefof those who have emphasizedfrom the very beginning thatGod could not have been seen.Belief in a God is as muchnatural as any natural instinctcan be. This eternal truth hasbeen explained in the verse ofthe Holy Quran mentionedabove.An atheist asked Imam Jafaral Sadiq (pbuh) how couldhe convince him about theexistence of God. Coming toknow that the man had goneseveral times on sea voyages,the Imam asked him, «Have youever been caught in a fiercestorm in the middle of nowhere,your rudder gone, your sails tornaway, trying desperately to keepyour boat afloat.» The answerwas ‘Yes’. Then the Imam asked,«And sometimes, perhaps,even that leaking boat wentdown leaving you exhaustedand helpless on the mercy ofraging waves?» The answerwas again ‘Yes’. Then the Imamasked: «Was not there, in all thatblack despair, a faint glimmer ofhope in your heart that someunnamed and unknown powercould still save you.» When heagreed, Imam said: «That poweris God.»That atheist was intelligent. Heknew the truth when he saw it.Todays atheist give that place to‘Nature’. The only snag is thatpoor ‘Nature’ is senseless andlifeless. How a senseless andlifeless idea (because nature isno more than an abstract idea)could create an universe of suchmagnitudewithsuchasystematicperfection, uniting millions andmillions of galaxies in a well-knitsystem? How could nature givelife and sense to creatures whenitself has none?Unity of God«Say: He is Allah, the Oneand Only; Allah, the External,Absolute; He be getteth not,nor is He begotten, and thereis none like unto Him.» HolyQuran (112)This short surah of the HolyQuran is the most significantof all writings dealing with theoneness of God. As AllamahAbd’llahYusuf‘Alihascommentedin his tradition of the Holy Book,the nature of God has beenindicated here in a few words,such as we can understand. Hewrites: Here we are speciallytaught to avoid the pitfalls intowhich man and nations havefallen at various times in tryingto understand God.«The first thing we have to noteis that His nature is so sublime,so far beyond our limitedconceptions, that the best wayin which we can realize Him isto feel that He is a personality.‘He, and not a mere abstractconception of philosophy.Secondly, He is the One and OnlyGod, the only one to Whomworship is due, all other thingsor beings that we can think ofare His creatures and in no waycomparable to Him. Thirdly, He
  21. 21. Beliefs23Hussein Revivalismis Eternal, without beginning orend; Absolute, not limited bytime or place or circumstances,the reality before which fallsother things or places are mereshadows or reflections.Fourthly, we must not think ofHim as having a son or a father,for that would be to importqualities into our conceptionof Him. Fifthly, He is not likeany other person or thingthat we know or can imagine;His qualities and nature areunique.»In fact this short surah is adeclaration of war againstall ideas of paganism andanthropomorphism. Menfrom the beginning have hada tendency to imagine Godin their own image. Somethought of Him as havingbody like animals or human-beings. Others thought thatHe was incarnated in the forcesof nature like rain, lightening,mountain and river. Still othersthought that He was a fatherand had a child or children.But this surah warns us againstthis tendency to conceive Godafter our own pattern.Can ‘Natur’ replace God?‘Nature designed this’; ‘Natureadapted that. These arethe phrases frequently seennowadays in the text-books andarticles.What is this Nature anyway? Itis nothing but an abstract ideaformed in the human brain aftercareful study of the behavior ofthe things. It may be found (if itis ‘found’ at all) within the things;it has no independent existence.And,inanycase,thereisnorecordof any conference of the ‘natures’of various things, held to decidehowtoco-ordinatetheirfunctions.Flowers never conferred with thebeestoseekthebees’co-operationin their pollination, offering them,in exchange, their nectar. Butwe know that bees could notlive a single day without flowers;and thousands of flowers wouldlong have been extinct but for thebees.More puzzling are thosephenomena which can not beexplained by ‘nature’s planning.’When Moses fled from Pharaoh,the Red Sea parted, allowinghim and his followers to crossto the promised land. Scientistsnowadays try to explain it bynatural causes; an earthquakemust have made the water shift atthat time. All right. But why didthat supposed earthquake occurat a time when Moses and hisfollowers desperately wanted tocrosstheSea,andwhyitremainedpartedtillPharaohenteredintoit?And why the movement of waterwas reversed at that very momentwhen the enemy of God with hispeople was in the midst of theSea? Was it all a coincidence?And was it a coincidence whichprompted a spider to weave itscobweb at the mouth of thecave in which the Holy ProphetMohammad (pbuh) was hidingfrom the pagans of Mecca whowanted to murder him? Andmore than that, was it also acoincidence which brought a pairofpigeonstobuildtheirnestatthemouth of that very cave at thickof night and lay the eggs beforemornings? It was that cobweband nest with eggs which ledthe blood-thirsty enemies tobelieve that Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) could not be in that cave,otherwise the cobweb wouldhave been destroyed and the nestand the eggs broken!Can that speed and timingof the pigeons and spider beexplained by ‘natural causes’?
  22. 22. History24Hussein RevivalismImam Hussein(pbuh) left Meccato the Holy city (Al-Madina Al-mounara) in Al-tarwiyah (1) day.Before his leaving, he visitedMecca and walked around (Al-saffa & Al-Marawa) 2First stage:Al-Hussein in the Holy city(Al-madena Al-mounara)Imam Hussein (pbuh) Movementfrom the Holy city to Mecca andKufa has many moral lessons,great, and honor situations inwholesidesthateverybelievercanget moral lessons. this Movementleads to the right direction.Therefore, we shall select a partfrom this blessing movement.After Yazid had became caliph,he sent a letter to Al-Madina ruler(Alwaledbinutba)orderinghimtogetagreementfromImamHussein(pbuh). The letter contained, "ifImam Hussein refused me as acaliph slay him and send his headto me). This letter reflected thebad behavior with the progenyof the messenger of Allah. Yaziddid not respect the will of ProphetMuhammad when he said (Verily,I am leaving behind two preciousthings (thaqalayn)3 among you:the Book of God and my kindred(`itrah),myhousehold(Ahlal­Bayt),for indeed, the two will neverseparate until they come back tome by the Pond (of al­Kawthar onthe Judgement Day).»We inspire lessons from AbuAbdullah Al-Hussein (peace beupon him) in the Dignity, heroismand sacrifice for the sake of Allah.WhenAl-wledaskedtopledgethecaliphandhisrefusingtoAl-waledrequire. Imam Hussein said (Weare Ahlul albayt and the origin ofAllah message and angels comedown on our grandfather andwith us Allah started(started hismessage) and will end it . Yazed isa killer, drinker and like me do notsubmit to him).Then Al-Hussein determined toleave the city of his grandfather.Before his leaving, he had goneto the tomb of his grandfather tosay good bye.Al-Hussein (pbuh) gives us alesson how to deal with gravesand respect them.He arrived to the grave of hisgrandfather (pbuh) at night andspoke to him (the messenger ofGod)saying(OMessengerofAllahpeace to you, I am Al-Hussein andthe son of Fatima. O Messengerof Allah be witness that, Theyhad left me alone).Then Imam Husseins brother(MuhammadbinAl-hanfaia)cameto Al-Husseins house and he wasso sad to his brothers departure.He told him: O brother, you arethe nearest man to my heart.You are my spirit and my oldbrother.You must leave pledge ofallegiance of Yazid. Brother sendyour followers to tell people thatyou are the right direction. I fearthat the people will change theiropinion when you enter to anycitiy. They will kill you becausethey will divide into two partswith you and against you. Yazidwill tempt them.ImamHusseinsaid to his brother.what do you suggest?where should I go brother?His brother said: go to Mecca andif you uncomfortable and feelrisk on your life left it towards Al-yamn.Al-Hussein said: brother, I do notpledge of allegiance Yazed binMuaawea even I wont not find aplace to live. Then, Imam Hussein(pbuh) wrote a will to his brotherMuhammadBinAl-Hanafai beforehis leaving saying:(In the name of Allah mostgracious most mercifulto Brother of Hussein bin Ali,you must believe that no Godbut Allah and Muhammad hismessenger…)Al-Hussein in MeccaWhen Imam Hussein enteredMecca on Friday night. he saidto its people the following verse(ayat)(And as he turned his facetowards Madyan, he said [tohimself]: “It may well be that mySustainer will [thus] guide meonto the right path) al-Qassas(22). All people were cheerfulwhen they saw Al-Hussein. WhileAumar bin Saad (prince of Mecca)was weariness so he wrote toYazid that he wanted to kill ImamHussein.Imam Hussein stayed in Mecca forfour month (shabban, Ramdan,shawal and thw Alqaada)------------------------------------------------------1- Al-truwai: it is the eighth day from thw -Al-haja Month2- Al-saffa & Al-mraw: one of the pilgrimagerites at Mecca3- Al- thaqaleen: prophet Muhammed usethis word to show that these ways are right.
  23. 23. Immortal Books25Hussein RevivalismNahjul Al-Balaghah is thegreatest literary andtheological composition in Islamafter the Holy Qur’an and theSunnah and it had been writtenby Imam Ali (pbuh). This sublimebook has no parallel. After theHoly Qur’an and the Sunnah(the sayings and traditions ofthe Prophet Muhammad, peacebe upon him), there is no otherbook that compares with it inthe respect it commands or inits comprehensive coverage ofthe different aspects of life (in allits diversity). The Messenger ofAllahboretestimonytoImamAli’sextraordinary accomplishmentsin some of his traditions: “I amthe locality of knowledge and Aliis its gateway.”“Ali is to me just asAaron was to Moses, except thatthere will be no prophet afterme.”The words of Imam Ali (a.s.)are considered to be the peak ofArabic eloquence. The followingare some of his sayings:1-“When this world favorsanybody, it lends him the meritsof others,and when it turns away fromhim, it takes with it his ownmerits”.2-“The most helpless of all menis he who cannot find a fewbrothers during his life, but stillmore helpless is he who loses thebrethren he already gained”.3-“He whose deeds let him lagbehind, his pedigree cannotpush him to the front”.4-“Noonemayconcealathinginhis heart without it manifestingitselfthroughslipsofthetongueand in the expressions of hisface”.5-“To miss what one needsis easier than to beg it from anunsuitableperson”.6-“Ones value is in what onecan do well”.7-Describing the mob, he said:«They are those who conquerwhen they get together and areunknown when they disperse”.8-“I am surprised at thosewho refrain from food lest theyshouldfall sick, but they would notrefrain from sins lest they shouldfallin the Fire”.9-“BewareofdisobeyingAllahinsolitude, because the witnessis also the judge”.10-To praise more than is due isflattery, but falling short ofthe due is either faltering orenvy”.11-“At the extremity of hardshipcomes relief, and at thetighteningof the chains of tribulationcomes ease.

According to some narrations, he was born onthe fifth of Shaban, 38 AH (1) and became martyred in twenty fifth from Muharramon 95 AH. He wrote this book to show the all rights which lead the human beingto the right path.Part oneIn the Name of Allah, Most Beneficent, Most MercifulKnow ­God have mercy upon you­that God has rights incumbent upon you and thatthese encompass you in every motion through which you move, every rest whichyou take, every way station in which you reside, every limb which you employ, andevery instrument which you use. Some of these rights are greater than others. And26Hussein Revivalism
  25. 25. Religionthe greatest of Gods rights incumbent upon you is what He has made incumbentupon you for Himself ­the Blessed and the Exalted­from His rights.That which is theroot of all rights from which others branch out. Then those which He has madeincumbent upon you in yourself, from your crown to your foot, according to thediversity of your organs.He established for your sight a right incumbent uponyou, and your hearing a right incumbent upon you, and your tongue a rightincumbent upon you, and your hand a right incumbent upon you, and your legsa right incumbent upon you, and your stomach a right incumbent upon you, andyour private part a right incumbent upon you.These are the seven organs throughwhich deeds take place. Then the Mighty and the High established for your deedsrights incumbent upon you. Then He established for your ritual prayer a rightincumbent upon you, and your fasting a right incumbent upon you, and yourcharity a right incumbent upon you, and your offering a right incumbent uponyou, and your deeds a right incumbent upon you. Then the rights extend out fromyou to others who have rights incumbent upon you. And the most incumbent ofthem incumbent upon you are the rights toward your leaders.RIGHTS OF GOD1-THE GREATEST RIGHT OF GODThen the greatest right of God incumbent upon you is that you worship Him withoutassociating anything with Him. When you do that with sincerity, He has made itbinding upon Himself to give you sufficiency in the affairs of this world and the nextand to keep for you whatever of them that you like.2- THE RIGHT OF YOURSELFAnd the right of yourself incumbent upon you is that you employ it in obeying God;then you deliver to your tongue its right, to your hearing its right, to your sight itsright, to your hand its right, to your leg its right, to your stomach its right, to yourprivate part its right, and you seek help from God in all that.1-AH: after the prophet Muhammeds hajra from Mecca to Madeina27Hussein Revivalism

TheProphetsaidtoImam<Ali,«IfAllahguides a person from among Hisservants through you, then that isbetter than everything betweenthe east and the west on whichthe sun shines.»1 When asked bya person for a counsel, he said,«I advise you not to associateanything with Allah...and to callthe people to Islam.

(Seethe questions at the end of thissection.) As mentioned above,this loss of faith is realized byneglecting the obligatory acts orby committing sins.The obligation to return to aMuslim country applies only ifit does not lead to death [forexample, for a political opponentwho has fled his own country],or to putting him in untenablesituation or, to an emergencysituation where religiousobligations are suspended (e.g.,the necessity of preserving lifewhich allows a person to eatforbidden (haram) meat in orderto prevent his own death fromstarvation).10-If the journey is forbidden(haram) for a person, then hisjourney will be considered «ajourney of sin;» and, in suchcases, he loses the benefit ofthe concession of praying (qasr)in four -rak>at salat and also thebenefit of not fasting during themonth of Ramadhan.

  45. 45. Woman47Hussein Revivalism«Do the woman of the Westhave more rights than thewoman of Islam? Who hasalways had rights? Who believesin «Equality» and who believes in«Uniformity»?First of all, we need to establishwhen the issues of humanrights was raised in the westernsociety that we live in i.e. Britain.Britain that is considered theoldest democratic country, onlyrecognized equal rights for menand woman at the beginningof this century (20th). The Westsees these rights as a novelty intheir lives. However, the equalityof rights between men andwoman have been anticipated14 centuries ago in Islam.Is there a difference? Yes! Islamsays a woman and a man are notidenticalinmanyrespects,andtheworld is not exactly alike for bothof them, and their natures anddispersions were not intendedto be the same. This requiresthat in many duties, rights andpunishments they should nothave an identical placing.Unfortunately, this is not thecase in the Western culture thatsurrounds us. The western worldis trying to create uniformity andidenticalnessinLaws,regulations,rights functions between menand woman. As they do this,they are ignoring the innate andnatural differences.Islam strongly approves andencourages equality, but doesnot agree with identicalness,uniformityandexactsimilarity.Thesadnessinallthisisthatthemanyrights that have been given towoman by Islam have in practicebeen ignored and should berestored. Some Muslim womanblindly follow and imitate theways of the West. Famous moviestars, singers and MPs etc areseen as role models encouragingdress style and life style.The biggest misfortune fora Muslim woman or for anywoman attempting to acquireidentical rights as that of a man,in my opinion, loose the right ofbeing who she is -»A Woman» -yet not reaching an equal of aman. She should have faith inthe rights suitable for herself andnot be encouraged by the Westto exceed them.This way her status may beconsidered equal or higher thanthat of a man. She should takeas her models Khadija (prophetMuhammad wife) who is Firstperson accept Islam. Fatemah(pbuh) is a daughter of theProphetandbravelifecompanionof Imam Ali (pbuh) and Zainab(pbuh). Zainab is a woman whocontrived the Karbala battle toend, and proved that the bloodof the martyrs was not shed invain).

  50. 50. facts52Hussein RevivalismIwould like to present in thisshort pamphlet: it is thecomparison between modernknowledge and passages in theQur’an that are also referred to inthe Bible.Water Circulation in natureThe verses dealing with theearthly systems are a case inpoint. I have quoted a largenumber of them in my book, TheBible, The Qur’an and Science,and have paid special attentionto those that deal with the watercycle in nature. This is a topicwhich is well known today.Consequently, the verses in theQur’an that refer to the watercycle seem to express ideas thatare now totally self-evident. But ifwe consider theQ ideas prevalentat that time, they appear tobe based more on myth andphilosophical speculation thanon observed fact, even thoughuseful practical knowledge onsoil irrigation was current at thatperiod.Let us examine, for example, thefollowing verse in chapter az-Zumar:“Have you not seen that Allahsent rain down from the skyand caused it to penetrate theground and come forth assprings, then He caused cropsof different colors to grow...”Qur’an,39:21Such notions seem quite naturalto us today, but we should notforget that, not so long ago, theywere not prevalent. It was notuntil the sixteenth century, withBernard Palissy, that we gainedthe first coherent descriptionof the water cycle. Prior to this,people believed that the watersof the oceans, under the effectof winds, were thrusttowards the interiorof the continents.They then returnedto the oceans via thegreat abyss, which,since Plato’s time wascalled the Tartarus.In the seventeenthcentury, great thinkerssuch as Descartes stillbelieved in this myth.Even in the nineteenthcentury there were stillthose who believed inAristotle’s theory thatwater was condensedin cool mountaincaverns and formedunderground lakesthat fed springs. Today,we know that it is theinfiltration of rain waterinto the ground that isresponsible for this. Ifone compares the factsof modern hydrologywith the data found innumerous verses of theQur’an on this subject,one cannot fail tonotice the remarkabledegree of agreement&QUR’AN
  51. 51. facts53Hussein Revivalism&BIBLEbetween the two.The FloodThere is a secondhighly significantsubject of comparisonbetween the Bibleand the Qur’an;descriptions of thedeluge. In actual fact,the Biblical narrationis a fusion of twodescriptions in whichevents are relateddifferently. The Biblespeaks of a universalflood and places itroughly 300 yearsbefore Abraham.According to what weknow of Abraham,this would imply auniversal cataclysmaround the twenty-first or twenty-secondcentury BC This storywould be untenable,in view of presentlyavailable historicaldata. How can weaccept the idea that,in the twenty-firstor twenty-secondcentury BC, all civilization waswiped off the face of the earthby a universal cataclysm, whenwe know that this periodcorresponds, for example,to the one preceding theMiddle Kingdom in Egypt, atroughly the date of the firstIntermediary period before theeleventh dynasty? It is historicallyunacceptable to maintainthat, at this time, humanitywas totally wiped out. Noneof the preceding statements isacceptable according to modernknowledge. From this pointof view, we can measure theenormous gap separating theBible from the Qur’an.In contrast to the Bible, thenarration contained in theQur’an deals with a cataclysmthat is limited to Noah’s people.They were punished for theirsins, as were other ungodlypeoples. The Qur’an does notfix the cataclysm in time. Thereare absolutely no historical orarchaeological objections to thenarration in the Qur’an.Age of the EarthAs for the Biblical genealogieswhich form the basis of theJewish calendar and assert thattoday the world is 5738 yearsold, these are hardly admissibleeither. Our solar system maywell be four and a quarter billionyears old, and the appearanceof human beings on earth, aswe know him today, may beestimated in tens of thousands ofyears, if not more. It is absolutelyessential, therefore, to note thatthe Qur’an does not contain anysuch indications as to the ageof the world, and that these arespecific to the Biblical text.part: 1

  56. 56. 58Renaissance of Al-hussainiReligion(1)The city is a very ancient city, it was known since the Babylonian age, it was used as a Christiangraveyard prior to the Islamic conquest, some say the date of the city comes from the cities of(Tassoh al-Nahrain) which lies on the river of Balakubass (Old Euphrates), and on its land there wasan ancient temple.(2) Karbala is an Iraqi Islamic Arabic city, it was famous at the pre-Islam age and possesses a variousand great history especially when its land witnessed a unique event that is truly one of the noblestepics of martyrdom and sacrifice that was the battle of (Tuf).(3) Location: the city is located about 105 km southwest of the Capital Baghdad at 32.61°N, 44.08°E,it lies on the edge of the desert west of Euphrates river and on the left side of the (Hussainiya) canal.Al-Anbar province borders the city from its west and north, Najaf province borders the south side ofthe city. Babil province and some parts of Baghdad border east side of the city.The citys weather is damp, very hot at summer season, and fair at fall; its lands take the waterfrom the canals of the Euphrates River, the city has many orchards , its has plain lands which madesuitable for various agriculture, we can see many fruit trees and palm trees surrounding the cityfrom all sides.(4) Etymology Some researchers say, The name of Karbala means (close to God) and it is of an oldBabylonian origin, some think that the meaning of Karbala is the Babylonian word (Kor Babil) whichmeans (old Babylonian towns). Some of these towns are (Nainawa, Ghadiryia, Karbala, Aker babil,Nawaweess and Heerr) which is called nowadays Hair (means in Arabic the lands, which refusethe water to enter it) when al-Mutawakil al-Abassi ordered to drive the water to the holy grave todestroy it, the water stopped and did not harm the holy grave.The word Karbalas origin is thought of as a two syllable Assyrian word ,the first syllable is (Karb)meaning (sanctuary) and (ala) meaning (God). The two syllables form the word (God s sanctuary).Other historians believe the origin may be Persian formed from the word (Karr) meaning work and(bala) meaning higher. AL-Tuf is one of the citys names, perhaps the name (Karbala) is derived fromthe Arabic word (Kurba) meaning soft earth for Karbala has plain lands, which made it easy fordifferent kinds of planting, the word (Karbal) also means a kind of fruit, and probably it was namedafter it.
