Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Hussaini Khamenei ,Maraje'een-e-Ezaam,Ulema-e-Karam and
Momineen o Mominaat on the sad occassion of the Shahadat anniversary of Shaheed
Quaid Allaama Syed Arif Hussain al Hussaini [RA].
to a noble and dignified family belonging to the honourable lineage
of Imam Zain-ul-Abideen (a.s) on 25th of November 1946 in Pewarh, Shaheed
Hussaini 's family had a history of religious prominence and selfless
sacrifices for Islam. His Great Grand father Syed Miandad Hussain
and Grand father both were martyred in the service of Islam and momineen of
ancestral name al-Hussaini is indicative of the fact that the lineage goes to
the 4th Imam Zain-ul-Abideen (as) through his son ,Hussain
-al-Asghar . The Hussaini Clan settled in parachinar in seventeenth century
with the arrival of Syed Mir Aqil Hussaini.
numbers of people embraced Islam inspired by the preaching efforts of
the elders of this clan.
Hussaini completed early religious education and schooling .In 1962 ,he completed
matriculation and took admission to Madresah-e-Jaffaria established
by Haji Ghulam Jaffer. He departed for Najaf, Iraq in 1967.Here he
developed closed association with Imam Khomeini although students usually
avoided the Imam for the fear of being marked black by the secret services of
saddam-e-katheef ,who kept a close watch on Imam Khomeini .In 1973 he
returned from najaf . In 1974 ,after his marriage he came
to Qom and attended the Duroos and learnt the ethos of numerous
scholars of Qom.
1977 he returned to his hometown and re-joined the same madressah
. Shaheed revolutionized the momineen and convinced them to
shun Un-Islamic norms and values emanating from culture. He introduced a
rational way of thinking within the confines of Islamic principles.
a man of valour and unmatched zeal whenever enemy forces invaded parachinar he
made sure that he was physically fighting side by side the other brave mominin.
He took keen interest in welfare projects and established Alamdar Foundation
for campaigning against anti social activities like drugg peddling etc and laid
the ideological basis of Shaheed Foundation to serve the families of martyrs of
a nationwide convention on April 12th, 1978 in Bhakkar, Punjab, Shi'a
ulema and responsible parties converged in thousands and Tehreek e Nifaaz
e Fiqh e Jafarria was formed in the convention with noisy chants of
approval. Mufti Jafar Hussain was selected as their leader. Mufti Jaffer
Hussain died on 29th August 1983 leaving millions of mourners behind him.
meeting of supreme council of TNFJ was called in Bhakkar, Punjab on February
10th 1984 and Shaheed Hussaini [RA] was unanimously chosen the new leader.
Quaid had multiple challenges , the draconian regime of Zia and his biased
policies depicting bigotry and yesmanship for US as well as the weakened
internal unity. He confronted the challenges with near perfection. In April
1984 in D. G. Khan, Punjab Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al
Hussaini said in a press conference:
"Our aim is not to enforce Fiqh e Jafarria in Pakistan. Let it be clear
that we want Fiqh e Jafarria for ourselves and for Ahle Sunnat brothers we want
their fiqh to be enforced so that both sects could live freely in Pakistan
according to their own fiqhs".
ever-increasing popularity of Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini
as true leader and ambassador of unity in Pakistan was taken as a threat to
imperialist designs and goals. The famous Qur'an o Sunnat conferences,
(especially the one on 6th July 1987 in Lahore, in which more than a
million admirers of Qur'an o Sunnat from every sect participated), shook rulers
in Pakistan and their their imperial pay masters abroad. It was later confirmed
by a senior journalist that all Urdu and English newspapers of 7th July were
taken by the US embassy in Islamabad and many cassettes of the 6th
July program were sent to the USA.
11 months after 6th July 1987, Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini was
martyred. It was later confirmed during the judicial
probe that the executioner of the conspiracy was a serving Captain Majid
Gilani who was deputed by the army in the protection team of President Gen Zia
ul Haq. Majid revealed shocking connections and details in his statement
which in itself is a must go-through document . However ,
under coercion as well as guarantees of safe exit ,
Captain Majid Raza Gilani changed his statement .
other characters were also exposed ,links and connections of US
imperialism's connivance with local sufyaniyyat were reported to have
been officially established beyond any iota of doubt in the
light of the corroborative statements of the accused .Quietly
however ,all the criminals were released on the day when a
"historic verdict" was expected . The quiet acquittal of the
murderers of Shaheed is a Shameful blot on the judicial process .
However the killers never knew that Shaheed
Hussaini [RA] was not just a person . He was a phenomenon and the pure blood of
Shohada like Shaheed Hussaini [RA] re-vitalizes the millat . Although the loss
is tremendous ,indeed ,as the years after Shaheed Quaid are a witness that how
a single person was handling multitudes of issues with great conviction almost
single handedly ,in the face of strong opposition both from external enemies as
well as from un-aware and the short sighted from within .
His four and half years of
leadership gave a new spirit to the millat as he used to make lot of public
contacts on regular basis visiting every nook and corner of the country .
Especially important was his strong approach vis-a-vis Shia Sunni unity
,whenever he used to visit a place he took Sunni Ulema with him on regular basis
and these actions really helped in evolving a very congenial atmosphere for
strengthening religious harmony on grass roots level . These were steps and
things which were directly detrimental to the hegemonistic designs of global
arrogance and their local stooges who decided to silence this voice of
He was very simple and humble person ,but
very straightforward and clear headed in his approach and being a man of people
that he was , he always used to feel the pain of momineen and stressed very
much on simplicity on each step .It was only after his Shahadat unfortunately
that friends and millat began to recognize him to a certain extent especially
after the void was felt in the aftermath of his shahadat tremendously.
Not just in his life he gave sacrifices ,but the
family continues to offer sacrifices even today ,only one and a half month back
his grand son embraced martyrdom in a bomb blast in Shaheed's Madressah in
Peshawar and even today Shaheed Hussaini 's steadfastness is symbolic and a beacon
for the whole millat.
Imam Khomeini on the martyrdom of
Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini:
Hujjatul Islam Syed Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini (RA): The loyalist and lover of
Islam and its revolution; the defender of the oppressed and deprived; son of
Syedul Shohada Aba Abdillah Al Hussain (AS).
For those Mujahideen who understand the core problems of an Islamic state, and
who promised to give their blood with other oppressed and impoverished people,
they should understand that this is just the beginning of the game because it
requires a long struggle to fight against tyrants.
We should think deeply by putting the example of Shaheed Syed Arif in front of
us. There is no greater achievement for a momin than to leave his abode with
wounds that are medals on his chest, and his face covered in blood, in the
struggle for justice, and in the highest stage of Taqwa-e-Ilahee. He inspired
thousands of other thirsty people to drink this beverage of light.
Pakistan`s blessed people are from a pro-revolution nation. They aspire to live
according to Islamic rulings, with which we have an ancient, deep, and faithful
relationship. It is imperative for them to keep Shaheed Syed Arif`s thoughts
alive and to pass his message on.
Nonetheless, the road to fight against American Islam is very difficult and
puzzling. Therefore it is necessary that all possible factors should be made
clear for the impoverished Muslim masses. If this work would have been done
there is high possibility that he [Arif Hussain, Al Hussaini] would be living
amongst us today.
So now it`s necessary for us to fight against the western and eastern tyrants
with all courage and understanding.
I have lost my dear son.
