When ImÄm Huá¹£ayne (pbuh) addressed Moslem ibn Aqil1âs children, âMoslemâs martyrdom is too much for your family! You had better go back to your houses.â Moslemâs children reacted, âAre we expected to tell the people, âWe have left our ImÄm (pbuh), our leader and elder alone among the enemies. We didnât defend him?! We swear by God; we will never do such a thing! May our lives and properties be sacrificed for you!ââ
ZakÅ«t [literally] means purity, growth and evolution. Therefore, Zakiyyah probably has two meaning:
1-Â Â Â Pure (which means, a person who hasnât committed sin since her/ his birthday).
2-Â Â Â A perfect person, learned and eminent.
To confirm the first meaning, SalmÄn narrated, âBe aware! A person with a pure and innocent Nafs [ego/soul] will come, who will be killed between Rukn and MaqÄm
â¦ And whoever is slain unjustly, we have indeed given to his heir authority, so let him not exceed the just limits in slaying; surely he is aided. (Holy QurÊ¾Än, Surah 17, Verse 33)
[In this regard], there is a á¸¤adÄ«th which reads: The [above] verse is about Imam á¸¤usayn (pbuh) and Imam ZamÄn (mgehr); the deceased is Imam á¸¤usayn (pbuh) and his avenger is Qaâim [Imam MahdÄ« (mgehr)].
When piety is the criterion of value, the gender isnât main.
Its high time, we recall Siyaneh1 who was a stylist in FerËonâs castle. She was a martyr in the right path [Path of God] who will (RajËat2) return to the world after the emergence.
Historically, there have been the women who were bright. Of the most well- known and brilliant ones are: Their Excellencies Fatimah, Maryam, and Asiya (pbu th).
After suppressing the opponents, SufyanÄ« and his large army, will rush into Iraq. So they will head Iraq. When they reach toQirq (Acity in Syria where khabur and Euphrates rivers meet) there will happen a battle and many people will be killed! Perhaps the reasonof such a decimation, is resisting the rulers of the land against SufyanÄ«âs avarice.
According to an authentic hadith by ImÄm SadÄ«q (pbuh), âAfter SufyanÄ« occupies the safe zones [Damascus, Homs, Palestine, Chalcis ad Belum [in Halab]and Jordan], he will run for nine monthsâ¦â (Al- Ghaybah, TÅ«sÄ«, Ibid, 452)
“To help the Imam (pbuh)”,
is the main lesson of this schoolâ¦ [the divine school]!
In the session “JÄmiâah KabÄ«rah”1, the prayer doesnât read “make me ready to help him”.
But it implies “I am ready to help you; you can count on me, [and] my help is ready for you â¦”
That is why in the session Ahad2, the ones who looks forward to the Emergence say chorally:
ImÄm á¸¤usayn (pbuh) headed toward KÅ«fah [as he had been requested], in order to set there the headquarters of IslÄmic jurisdiction, like his gracious father [ImÄm Ê¿AlÄ« (pbuh)].
[But] when the political atmosphere changed in KÅ«fah, the very inviters blocked the road to the ImÄm (pbuh)!!
Yet, he settled in KarbalÄ inevitably, in 2nd Muá¸¥arram.
He will send two different armies to Median and Iraq, coincidently! Well, ImÄm MahdÄ« (mgehr)âs governing station is of special importance for him. Hence, he will rush into Shia- inhabited cities of KÅ«fah, and his huge attacks will strike the people!
Â ImÄm MahdÄ« (mgehr) will invite them, and reminds them his truthfulness. He will inform them that he is oppressed and his right will have been usurped, by force.
He will state, âWhoever bickers me over God, [must know that], I am the most deserving and nearest to Godâ¦â
However, SufyanÄ« will disobey The Excellency. Yet, The Excellency will set off to cleanse the world from his existence.
