Fazail e Imam Hussain عليه السلام

The superiority and excellence of the Prophet’s FamilyAllah has commanded us to love the Family of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) through the Holy Quran:Say: “No reward do I ask of you for this except the love of those near ofkin.”Surah Shoora (42:23)It is mentioned in the Hadith:Translation: You teach 3 things to your children: Love of the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), love of His family and the recitation of theHoly Quran. (Al Jame’ Ul Kabeer, Hadith No:924; Jame’ Ul Ahadeeth,Hadith No:961; Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No:45409; Al Fath Ul Kabeer, Vol.1, Pg No. 59)Allah Most High says:And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye Members ofthe Family, and to make you pure and spotless.Surah Ahzaab (33:33)This verse of the Holy Quran establishes that the Prophet’s Family isprotected from all kinds of defects, whether they are intellectual defects ordefects of belief or any other kind of defect.About the background of the revelation of this verse, Hadhrat Umme Salama(May Allah be well pleased with her) says:Translation: This verse was revealed when the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) was present in my house. After this verse was revealed,the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) summoned Hadhrat Fatima,Hadhrat Ali, Imam Hasan and Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleasedwith all of them). Then the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:This is my Family (Ahle Bait). Hadhrat Umme Salama (May Allah be wellpleased with her) asked: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam):Am I not from the Ahle Bait? He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: 3
Certainly, you are also from my Ahle Bait. (Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol. 5, PgNo. 316)
Love of the Prophet’s Family and His Companions is a sign ofthe Ahle SunnahThere is a Hadith in Jame’ Tirmidhi:Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas(May Allah be well pleased with them) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) said: Love Allah Most High as He grants you bounties.Love me to love Allah and love Family to love me.(Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 219; Mishkaat Ul Masabeeh, Vol. 2, Pg No.573; Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol. 5, Pg No. 314/315)The grace and benevolence of Allah Most High demands that we shouldlove Him. To be able to love Allah Most High, we should love the HolyProphet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and to be able to love the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), the Prophet’s Family should be loved.It is as if the love of the Prophet’s Family is a step towards the love of theHoly Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). If anybody desires proximityand closeness of Allah Most High and wants to be summoned unto Hispresence, the only way for this is to love the Prophet’s Family. This lovewill grant closeness to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) andthrough the proximity of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), onecan attain proximity of Allah.There is a Hadith in Sunan Ibn Majah and Jame’ Tirmidhi.Translation: The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: By Himwho holds my life in His hands, faith cannot even enter the heart of theperson, who does not love you (The Prophet’s Family) for the sake of AllahMost High and the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). (Jame’Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 217, Hadith No: 3691)In the Hadith of Ibn Majah, the words are: Translation: Until he loves them for the sake of Allah Most High andbecause of my relationship with them. (Sunan Ibn Majah, Pg No. 13, HadithNo: 137)
What kind of love?The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave the command to lovethem and also described the degree of love.Translation: Love makes a person blind and deaf i.e. the lover can neithersee nor hear of any defect in his/her beloved. (Sunan Abu Dawood, Vol. 2,Pg No. 699)The zenith of love is that the lover cannot notice any defect in the belovedeven when it exists. These personalities whom Allah Most High and HisProphet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) have commanded us to love, theythemselves declare their virtuousness and purity and have negated thepossibility of every defect in them.Even after this declaration by Allah Most High, if anyone attributessomething inappropriate towards them, then that person is not raisingobjections against Imam Hussain (عليه السلام),instead that person is raising objections against the Holy Quran itself. Also,that person is breaking the rules of love and is moving out of its bounds.The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has not only commanded usto love His Family, but has also given glad tidings of paradise andintercession to those who love His Family.Translation: My intercession is for those privileged people of the Ummah,who love my Family. (Kanz Ul Ummal, Vol. 13, Pg No. 86)There is a Hadith:There are 4 lucky people for whom I will intercede on the Day of Judgment.1. One who respects my Family.2. One who offers them what they need.3. One who manages their affairs when they need it.4. One who loves them with his tongue and heart. (Kanz Ul Ummal,Vol. 13, Pg No. 86) 
There is a Hadith in Zujajatul Masabeeh on the authority of Musnad Ahmed.Hadhrat Abuzar Ghifari says:Translation: While I held the door of the Ka’aba, I heard the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) say: Behold! Verily, the example of my Familyamong you is like the ark of Prophet Nooh (May peace be upon him).Whoever boards it, is saved and whoever stays back is destroyed.(Mishkaatul Masabeeh, Vol. 2, Pg No. 573; Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol. 5, PgNo. 315)
Love of the Prophet’s Family and the Companion is a practice ofthe Ahle SunnahThe Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has declared the Prophet’sFamily as the ark of deliverance and safety and the Companions as the starsof guidance.Translation: My Companion are like the stars of guidance. Whomever youfollow, you will be guided. (Mishkaatul Masabeeh, Pg No. 54; ZujajatulMasabeeh, Vol. 5, Pg No. 334)Hadhrat Mulla Ali Qari writes in Mirqaat Ul Mafateeh on the authority ofImam Fakhruddin Radhi (May Allah shower His mercy on both of them):Translation: By the grace and benevolence of Allah Ta’ala, we, the AhleSunnah are in the ship of the love of the Prophet’s Family and are also beingguided by the stars of guidance i.e. the Companion of the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). We hope that Allah Most High will save usfrom horrors of the Day of Judgment and from the tortures of hell and willgrant us high stations in heaven, which is eternal.(Explanatory notes, Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol. 5, Pg No. 315; MirqatulMafateeh, Vol. 5, Pg No. 610) Sermon on the love of Prophet’s Family after returning from theHujjatul Wada’aThere is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim.Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Zaid bin Arqam (MayAllah be well pleased with him) that one day the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) gave a sermon at Ghadeer, which is between Makkah andMadina.He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) thanked Allah, praised Him and gave asermon. He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) advised us and reminded us of thehereafter and then said: O People! Verily, I have come as a human being.Soon, a messenger from my Lord will come to me and I will accept hisinvitation. I leave behind, with you 2 great bounties of Allah Most High.One among them is the Book of Allah, in which there is guidance andradiance. You accept the Book of Allah Most High and hold on to it firmly.He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) exhorted us towards the Holy Quran. Thensaid: The second bounty is my Family. I remind you of Allah about myFamily; I remind you of Allah about my Family …..” (Sahih Muslim, Vol.4, Pg No. 279, Hadith No: 2408; Mishkatul Masabeeh, Pg No. 68; ZujajatulMasabeeh, Vol. 5, Pg No. 317/318/319)”I remind you of Allah about my Family”. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) said this because love of Prophet’s Family is for the loveof the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and love of the HolyProphet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is for the love of Allah Most High.Hence love of Prophet’s Family will take you to Allah, so fear Allah aboutthem in that no inappropriate word about them slips out from your tongue.Hadhrat Mulla Ali Qari (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) writes in theinterpretation of this Hadith:Translation: The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) repeated: “Iremind you of Allah about my Family” 2 times. The wisdom behind it isthat the first time it meant His progeny and the second time, it meant theUmmahatul Momineen i.e. the blessed wives of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam), may Allah be well pleased with them. (Mirqatil Mafateeh,Vol. 5, Pg No. 594) 
Hurting the Companion is hurting the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam)The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has emphasized respect ofHis Family and along with them, respect of the Companions that Allah MostHigh should be feared about them, as given in Jame’ Tirmidhi:Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah binMughaffal (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Fear Allah about my Companions. FearAllah. Do not make them the target of your condemnation after me.Whoever loves them, loves them out of love for me. Whoever hates them,hates them out of his hate for me. Whoever hurts them, hurts me andwhoever hurts me, hurts Allah and whoever hurts Allah, He will hold him toaccount very soon. (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 225, Hadith No: 3797)The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has declared relations withHis Family as a means of deliverance and a means of safety frommisguidance. Whoever attaches himself/herself with them, will never bemisguided. Please consider, will those pure souls fall prey to chasing thismaterial world?Thus, on the occasion of the Hujjatul Wada’a, when the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave the whole world a message of peace, onthe same occasion, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) also gave the order forattaching oneself to the Holy Quran and the Prophet’s Family. Followingthem is a means of eternal blessings and is a strong guard against wrongbeliefs and the wrong path. There is a Hadith in Sunan Baihaqui and inJame’ Tirmidhi:Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Jabir (May Allah bewell pleased with him): I saw the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)on ‘Arafah. He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was on His she-camel, Qaswaand was giving a sermon. I heard Him say: O people, I leave with you 2great bounties. As long as you hold on to them, you will never bemisguided. They are: the Book of Allah and my Family.(Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 219, Hadith No: 3718) 
When according to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), HisFamily saves people from misguidance and whoever attaches oneself withthem cannot be on the wrong path, then is it correct to blame them with thelove of this material world? Is it correct to label their struggle as a politicalstruggle? Even after Allah declares their purity in Surah Ahzaab-33?Even after the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed for themthus:O Allah! These is my Family (Ahle Bait). You remove all uncleanlinessfrom them and grant them absolute purity. (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No.219, Hadith No: 3129)
Imam Hussain’s truthfulnessSome people hold the view that Imam Hussain’s (عليه السلام) going to Karbala and his martyrdom is a political matter and is abattle for the sake of gaining power.All this after the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) commanded theUmmah to support Imam Hussain (عليه السلام).Can anybody claim that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gavethe command to help somebody to get a seat of power or to supportsomebody in hankering after the material world?There is a Hadith in Kanz Ul Ummal:Translation: Verily, My son Hussain (عليه السلام)will be martyred in an area in Iraq, so whoever among the Ummah is presentat that time, should stand up in support of him. (Kanz Ul Ummal, Vol. 13,Pg No. 111)How could Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) desire thetemporary power of this world when the whole creation gets the wealth ofpiety from the doorstep of his house?How could he desire this world, when the following Hadith of the HolyProphet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was before him:
Translation: A whip’s space of paradise (i.e. the place taken to keep a whip)is better than this world and everything in it. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No:3250)Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) is the leader of all theyoung men of the Jannah whose whip’s length of space is better than thisworld: (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 217, Hadith No: 3701)
Disrespect of the Prophet’s Family leads to misguidance anddestruction of faithThere is a Hadith in Imam Baihaqi’s Shu‘ab Ul Iman:Translation: There are 6 people, whom I curse and the prayer of everyProphet is accepted. (Among them are the following)The one who considers things declared forbidden by Allah as lawful.Who considers those things lawful about my Family, which Allah hasdeclared as forbidden i.e. who disrespects the Prophet’s Family. (Shu‘ab UlIman, Hadith No: 3850; Mishkaat Ul Masabeeh, Vol. 1, Pg No. 22)This shows that disrespect of the Prophet’s Family leads to misguidance anddestruction of faith.There is a Hadith in Jame Tirmidhi.Translation: The narrator of the Hadith says: When I went to meet HadhratUmme Salama (May Allah be well pleased with her), she was crying. Iasked her: What is the reason for your crying? Hadhrat Umme Salama (MayAllah be well pleased with her) said: I saw a dream in which the HolyProphet’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) blessed face and hair were coveredwith dust. Upon asking, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: I was presentat Hussain’s martyrdom in Karbala…..” (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 217,Hadith No: 3704)The presence of the Holy Prophet’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in the Battleof Karbala is a striking proof of Imam Hussain’s truthfulness. 
The lover of the Imams, Hasan And Hussain, (عليه السلام) is also in paradiseThe famous Hadith-expert (Muhaddith) Imam Tabarani has related inM‘ojam Ausat on using his own chain of authority from Hadhrat ‘Abdullahbin ‘Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with him) and Imam ‘Ali MuttaqiHindi has recorded this Hadith in Kanz Ul ‘Ummal Vol. 13, Pg No. 103/104on the authority of Ibn ‘Asaker. The Hadith in M‘ojam Ausat of ImamTabarani Hadith No. 6649 is being mentioned here.Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah bin Abbas(May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) offered the Salaat Ul ‘Asr. When the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was in the 4th Raka’at (unit of Salaat), Hasanand Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with them) came. They climbed onthe blessed back of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). TheHoly Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) seated them in front of Him.Hadhrat Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him) came forward. TheHoly Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) lifted him on His right shoulderand lifted Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) on His leftshoulder. Then He said: O people! Shall I tell you who are they whosematernal grandfather and grandmother are better than the whole world?Shall I tell you who are they whose paternal uncle and aunt are better thaneverybody else’s paternal uncle and aunt? Shall I tell you who are theywhose maternal uncle and aunt are better than everybody else’s maternaluncle and aunt? Shall I tell you who are they whose mother and father arebetter than everybody else’s mother and father? Listen! They are Hasan andHussain (May Allah be well pleased with him). Their maternal grandfatheris the Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam); their maternalgrandmother is Hadhrat Khadija (سلام اللہ علیہا); theirmother is Hadhrat Fatima (سلام اللہ علیہا); their fatheris Hadhrat Ali bin Abi Talib (عليه السلام); theirpaternal uncle is Ja’afar bin Abi Talib (May Allah be well pleased withhim); their paternal aunt is Hadhrat Umme Hani bint Abi Talib (May Allahbe well pleased with her); their maternal uncle is Hadhrat Qasim, the son ofthe Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam); their maternal aunts areZainab, Ruqaiya, Umme Kulthoom (May Allah be well pleased with them).Their maternal grandfather is in paradise; their father is in paradise, theirmaternal grandmother is in paradise; their mother is in paradise; their paternal uncle is in paradise; their maternal aunts are in paradise and theirsister is in paradise and whoever loves them will also be in paradise.(M‘ojam Ausat, Hadith No: 6649; Kanz Ul ‘Ummal, Vol. 13, Pg No.103/104 with slight change of words)
Superiority and excellence of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) Glad tidings of his birthThe paternal aunt of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) saw adream and reported it to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). TheHoly Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave a happy interpretation of thedream and gave glad tidings of the birth of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام), as given in Imam Baihaqi’s Dalaail Un Nabuwwa.Translation: Hadhrat Umme Fadhl bint Haris (May Allah be well pleasedwith her) narrates that she went to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and said: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)! Thisnight I saw a horrifying dream. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) asked her: What dream did you see? She said: I saw as if a part ofyour body has been cut and placed in my lap. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) said: You saw a good dream. If Allah wills, Fatima (سلام اللہ علیہا) will have a son and he will be placed in yourlap.It happened as the Prophet had said. Hadhrat Fatima (سلام اللہ علیہا) was blessed with Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) and he was placed in my lap, as the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had said.Then one day, I went to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) andplaced Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) before Him.What I saw! That the Holy Prophet’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) eyes werefull of tears. Upon seeing this, I asked: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihiwa sallam), May my mother and father be sacrificed for your sake, what isthe reason of your crying? The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)said: Jibreel came to me and said that very soon, some people from myUmmah will martyr this son of mine. I asked: O Prophet, will they martyrthis prince? The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Yes andJibreel gave me the red sand of that place. (Dalaail Un Nubuwwah, Hadith No: 2805; Mishkaat Ul Masabeeh, Vol. 2, Pg No. 572; Zujajatul Masabeeh,Vol. 5, Pg No. 327/328)In the Hadith of Ummul Fadhl (May Allah be well pleased with him), thereare glad tidings of the birth of Imam Hussain and also the Propheticknowledge of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is revealed.By the grant of Allah, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) knows what is insidethe mothers’ wombs. What has been mentioned in the last verse of SurahLuqman – 34:This is intrinsic knowledge (‘Ilm Dhati), which is the attribute of AlmightyAllah alone. Therefore by the grant of Allah, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) not only gave glad tidings of birth, but also specified thegender and said:A boy will be born and also said that he will be placed in the lap of HadhratUmme Fadhl (May Allah be well pleased with her).His birth:He was born on the 5th of Sha’aban, in Madina.

Syeda Fatima- May Allah Most High be well pleased with all of them.(Noor ul Absar.Fi Manaqibi Aali Baitin Nabiyyil Mukhtaar, Pg No. 52)
Hasan and Hussain are heavenly namesOn the 7th day of his birth, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)named him as Hussain.It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Ali (عليه السلام) that he had named his elder son as Hamzah and had named ImamHussain (عليه السلام) after his uncle Ja’afar. Thenthe Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) named them as Hasan andHussain. (Mo’jam Kabeer, Hadith No: 2713)Hasan and Hussain are from among the names of paradise. Before Islam,the Arabs had not used these names. As recorded by Imam Ibn Hajr HaitamiMakki (May Allah shower His mercy on him) in As Sawaaiq Al Muhriqa,Pg No. 115 and Tarikh Ul Khulafa, Pg No. 149.When the Imams were born, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)said the Adhaan in both their ears. As given M‘ojam Tabarani, Hadith No:921, 2515:The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) performed the ‘Aqeeqa forboth of them.Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas(May Allah be well pleased with them) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) slaughtered one goat each in the ‘Aqeeqa of the ImamsHasan and Hussain. (Sunan Abu Dawood, Pg No. 392; Sunan Baihaqui,Hadith No: 1900; Tabarani, Hadith No: 1172, 2504, 2503) 14
Imams Hasan and Hussain are the beauty of JannahThere is a Hadith in Imam Tabarani’s M‘ojam Ausat and in Kanz UlUmmal:Translation: When the people of paradise will settle in paradise, it heavenwill entreat: O Allah Most High, did you not promise me that you will adornme with 2 persons? Allah Most High will answer: O paradise, did I notadorn you with Hasan and Hussain? Upon this, paradise will be proud (ofitself) like a bride. (M‘ojam Ausat, Hadith No: 343; Kanz Ul ‘Ummal, Vol.13, Pg No. 106)Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) is the beloved of theHoly Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and of His beloved daughter,Hadhrat Fatima (سلام اللہ علیہا). To express the closerelationship between tem, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)said:Translation: Hussain is though me and I am with Hussain. (Jame’ Tirmidhi,Vol. 2, Pg No. 218)
Love of the Imams is a guarantee of the love of Allah Most HighIt is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Usama bin Zaid (May Allah bewell pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)said about Imam Hasan and Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased withthem):Translation: These are my sons and the sons of my daughter. O Allah! Youlove both of them and take the person who loves both of them to be Yourbeloved. (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 217)Becoming the beloved of Allah Most High is possible through the love ofImam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him). It is mentioned in theHadith:Translation: O Allah! You make that person your beloved who lovesHussain. (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 218) The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) placed Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) on His lap, kissed his lips and prayed:Translation: O Allah! I love him. You also love them and take that personas your beloved, who loves both of them. (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No.219)The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) stopped thesermon for Imams, Hasan And Hussain (عليه السلام)There is a Hadith in Jame Tirmidhi. Sunan Abu Dawood and Sunan Nasai:Translation: Hadhrat ‘Abdullah Bin Buraidah (May Allah be well pleasedwith him) says that he heard Hadhrat Buraidah (May Allah be well pleasedwith him) saying: The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was givinga sermon. When Imam Hasan and Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) came baby-walking, wearing red striped garments, theHoly Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) came down from the pulpit andlifted Hasan and Hussain (عليه السلام). Thenagain stepped on to the pulpit and said: Allah has truly said that this world isa great test. I saw these kids walking ever so carefully; I could not stopmyself, so much so that I stopped My Khutba and lifted them. (Jame’Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg No. 217, Hadith No: 3707; Sunan Abu Dawood, HadithNo: 935; Sunan Nasai, Hadith No: 1394; Zujajatul Masabeeh, Pg No. 333)This Hadith reveals the deep relationship of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) with Imam Hussain (عليه السلام).In childhood, even their falling on the ground was not acceptable to the HolyProphet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) stopped the sermon, steppeddown from the pulpit and lifted them. With this, the Holy Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) made this as clear as the day that they (ImamHasan and Imam Hussain) themselves are the Deen, as the sermon cannot bestopped for worldly purposes. Then by describing their actions on thepulpit, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) made it as clear as the day everyaction of theirs is also a part of religion. 
The Prophet’s deep love for Imam HussainThe Holy Prophet’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) love for Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) is such that Imam Hussain’s crying,even as a child in his cradle pained the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam).Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Zaid bin Abu Zyada,(May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahualaihi wa sallam) left His house and when passing by the house of SyedaFatima (May Allah be well pleased with her), he heard Imam Hussain (MayAllah be well pleased with him) crying. He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)entered her house and said, Dear daughter, don’t you know that his (ImamHussain’s) crying pains me?” (Noor Ul Absaar Fi Manaqibi Aali BaitinNabiyyil Mukhtaar, Pg No. 139)If Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) crying as a childpained the Holy Prophet, (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), then the battle ofKarbala, in which all the limits of tormenting Imam Hussain (May Allah bewell pleased with him) were crossed; in which he was kept thirsty and thenassassinated; in which his body was trampled with horses; in which othersupporters of the Imam were tormented heavily and martyred; in which the6-month-old Ali Asghar (May Allah be well pleased with him) was given anarrow instead of water; these inhuman acts of those people, how much theymust have pained the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) ? Will allthis be ignored? Never. Allah says:“Verily on those who hurt Allah and the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam), is the curse of Allah in this world and the next, and humiliatingpunishment has been readied for them.– Surah Ahzaab- 57.
