It has been narrated that after Prophet Joseph (pbuh) returned to Canaan, Prophet Jacob (pbuh) insisted him to tell his story,
So Joseph (pbuh) told the story till when “His brothers took off his clothes and threw him into the well”
At this time Prophet Jacob (pbuh) fainted!!
A group pf authors, From the Euphrates to Euphrates, Vol. 1, P.28
There is no doubt, that the story of Prophet Joseph (pbuh) and Imam á¸¤usayn (pbuh) are not comparable.
But while he had a high spiritual power, Prophet Jacob (pbuh) could not withstand the disaster happened to Joseph (pbuh).
Be honestâ¦which one of us has ever fainted, because of the disasters happened to Imam á¸¤usayn (pbuh)!?
As a poet said:
Go into fire to feel how I am feeling
You cannot feel burning just by watching!
The event of ÄshÅ«rÄ was a disaster that Imam á¸¤usayn (pbuh) withstood, in order to guide us.
If an individual realizes the greatness of Ê»ÄshÅ«rÄ, s/ he will surely find that Satanâs activities were defeated on that day, and also it will not be lasting.
So, s/ he will believe it will come to an end.
Here, the disaster of Imam Huá¹£ayn (pbuh) relates to the disaster of Imam ZamÄn (mgehr);
He also considers The Major Occultation Era is big [suffering] divine test for Imam ZamÄn (mgehr) â since it has prevented his majesty from fulfilling the God’s promise about taking revenge on murderers of his gracious ancestor [Imam Huá¹£ayn (pbuh)] â So he would wish as:
âI beg Allah, who honoured you above others, to be generous towards me on account of you, and give me the opportunity to be with the victorious Imam, the descendent of Muá¸¥ammad (blessings and peace be on him and on his children from Allah).â (Part of Ê»ÄshÅ«rÄ prayer)
1-Â Â Â Â Not only did prophet Josef (pbuh)âs shirt have special fragrance, when his father smelled it, but also ImÄm Huá¹£ayn (pbuh)âs shirt was sweet- smelling when he died on AshÅ«rÄ Day.
