Chehlum of Shaheed Saeed Haider Zaidi Commemorated.(Video Link Updated)
Chehlum Program of Shaheed-e-Saeed ,Shaheed Syed Saeed Haider Zaidi was commemorated on Saturday ,Jan 5 ,2013 @ Imambargah Shah-e-Karbala Old Rizvia after Maghrebain at 6:45 pm with Tilawat-e-Quran.
Martyr Saeed Haider Zaidi was a member of Imamia Students Organisation (ISO)'s Markazi and Zaili Nazaarat.[Overseeing/Consultative body]. Shaheed started his organizational career after the Islamic revolution and worked for Imamia Students Organization holding different responsibilities. He had a special liking and inclination towards nashr-o-ashaat aspect (propagation) which was to remain his core focus perhaps for the rest of his life.
He had founded a publication house Dar us Saqlain in Rizvia Society. He was author and co-author of many books and also edited numerous books. He had worked for Dar us Saqafah also.
Saeed Haider Zaidi always worked to strengthen the mutual ties of Sunni and Shia Muslims. He had given lectures on Islamic Movements. He had always expressed grave concern against all those who fanned sectarian tension. He was a sworn opponent of the global imperialism, Zionism and the United States.
His martyrdom has proved that the Zionist-controlled U.S.-backed terrorists are involved in eliminating people such as Saeed Haider Zaidi for their opposition to Israel and the U.S. and support to Islamic Movements.
Although he was not an Aalim in formal sense ,but he enjoyed immense respect from Ulema-e-Karam for his very strong and deep understanding of Islamic principles,society, advocacy of Shia Sunni unity and especially services extended to nation as a thinker ,translator ,scholar and his contribution towards spiritual growth of youth.
A valuable lecture from Shaheed may be accessed at
One of his work is to bring Tafseer-e-Namoona online: http://tafseer-e-namona.com/Index.html
On his martyrdom ulema-e-karam not just from Pakistan but across the world sent condolence messages and paid glowing tributes to the noble man .
Tonight's program was attended by momineen in large numbers from different spheres of life . Shedding light on the services extended by Shaheed Saeed Haider , Maulana Mohammad Ali Taqavi said ,that Shaheed Saeed was really concerned about the direction of Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan adding that he personally received condolence messages from Ulema from across the world . He also said that Shaheed was very humble and always tried to avoid limelight and publicity something everybody who knows him testifies wholeheartedly. When he was requested to produce under his own name ,the collection of editorials of bi-monthly risalat that he was part of , he plainly refused as he had a habit of giving credit to others efforts .Maulana Taqavi further said that Shaheed often expressed resentment and reservations on people who are after capturing limelight indicating that we must be ideology oriented and not personality oriented. Brother Danish Rizvi presented kalam "Shaheed hogaye kuch aur tere laal Hussain (AS)"
Maulana Aqeel Moosa said some of glowing characteristics of Shaheed Saeed were that he was a "Deendar Inqalabi" [ adding that its a rare mix especially in Pakistan's context ] and Matami Azadar[ pointing towards his strong liking for late Sachay bhai and other Noha Khwans] . Maulana Aqeel Musa said ,that it was fitting for such a man that at the time of his martyrdom his head was on the book containing Imam Hussain(AS) 's thoughts causing tears to flow down the audience's faces. Imamia Students Organization Pakistan's central president Brother Athar Imran also presented his views on the occassion.
Dr. Zahidi who spoke on special request of Khanwada-e-Shaheed said that the greatest point to bear in mind is to keep the thoughts and works of Shaheed alive .He said , Shaheed was not just a publisher , he used to read bulk literature produced in other languages ,select a few short books suited to Pakistani environment especially focusing youth, translated them to urdu , got them printed and introduced it in society by reaching out to momineen. Brother Aatir Haider of Dasta-e-Imamia presented ISO tarana "Ooncha rahay apna alam-Hayya ala Kheril amal" carved out of sachay bhai's all time famous noha. Shaheed 's steadfast son also addressed the audience on this occassion representing Khanwada-e-Shaheed.

Khuda se Kehna !
Aik aisi millat se aaraha hu!
Jawaan lashay utha uthaa kar
Jiskay dil pe zakham lagay thay!
Aur ye bhi kehna!
kamal e Ijz o Safa se kehna
ke teri nusrat ki raah taktay!
umeedwar nigaah walay
lahu ke aansu baha rahay thay!
Aur ye bhi kehna
Fakhar se Usko Gawaah kar ke!
ke Jis jaaday pe chal ke aya hu
sadayein sunta hu doston ki
ke keh rahay hain
ye jaada rahay ga zinda!
isee pe chaltay rahainge paiham !
milainge Kausar pe phir dubara!
Aur jhurmat mein Panjetan(AS) ki!
apnay qisay suna suna kar!
teri bargaah se daad leinge!
har aik kaawish ,har aik sa'ee ka!
tere karam se inaam leinge!
Khuda se Kehna!
Khuda se Kehna!
