27th Shahadat Anniversary of Shaheed Quaid Allama Syed Arif Hussain al Hussaini [RA] Being Commemorated Today......
Last days of Shaheed Hussaini:
The 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 every house of rulers in Pakistan and 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. Though it is still not revealed who really was behind the conspiracy and how many took part in it, it is confirmed that the executioner of the conspiracy was Captain Majid Jilani who was deputed by the army in the protection team of President Gen Zia ul Haq.
Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini toured Karachi and his ancestral city Para Chinar in the last month of his life. When he was in Karachi he was warned of possible attack on his life but he didn't give much ear to it!
Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini went to Para Chinar after coming from Karachi and in same days his elder sister saw a nightmare just before dawn in which two attackers cut off her right shoulder. After waking, she immediately sent a message to her brother through her husband not to leave for Peshawar . When her husband met Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini, he delivered her message and elaborated her nightmare. After listening to the nightmare, Shaheed Quaid kept quite for sometime thinking and then said Ã¢â‚¬Å“Alhamdolillah" and requested his brother in law not to tell this nightmare to his mother and also told his brother in law that Ã¢â‚¬Å“he will now go to Peshawar at all cost".
It was the morning of 14th August, after meeting with his students and colleagues in Madressah, Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini left Para Chinar. He took his two sons Muhammed and Ali with him. When Shaheed Quaid was on his way to Peshawar , Adhaan for Zuhr prayers was heard. According to Shaheed Quaid's driver Abbas, it was usual for Allama as wherever he heard Adhaan, he stopped the car and prayed but that day he didn't stop the car at any nearby mosque but he stopped me outside of Para Chinar at a petrol pump asking him to fill petrol while he went to pray Namaz at a nearby clean place. Albeit a very dangerous area and circumstances, Allama prayed for a long time there. That praying place of Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini is now a beautiful mosque as the petrol pump owner was continuously instructed through nightmares to build a mosque there!
After reaching Peshawar , Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini went directly to Madressah. He prayed Maghrabain with his students. It was Friday night and usually Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini recited Dua e Kumail with his students, but on that very night Shaheed Quaid did not and went to his room where he had very long discussions with his colleague Allama Muhammad Jawwad Hadi. When Allama Jawwad went to sleep, Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini inquired about his office secretary Mohabbat Ali who was not in Madressah at that time. Shaheed Quaid asked to call him. His guard Zamin Ali asked Shaheed Quaid whether he should iron his clothing, as they had to leave for Lahore the next day to attend a seminar but Shaheed Quaid told him to leave his clothing. Shaheed Quaid asked for all of his mail and proceeded to answer all his mail one by one which were from all over Pakistan . When Mohabbat Ali came, Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini inquired about every account of Madressah with him and checked personally every account and details. He also gave instructions regarding Khums money in his custody. About Rs 0.5 million were donated by Dubai Momineen in relief of the Gilgit tragedy, that money was also in his custody. He ordered Zamin Ali to deliver that money to Maulana Sheikh Ali Madad, who was in charge of Northern areas affairs then, immediately though it was 2:00 AM in night.
After giving all money and checking all accounts, Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini went to his room. According to his guard Zamin Ali, when he went near Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini's room in night, he heard Shaheed Quaid's screaming voice reciting Dua e Kumail. Zamin Ali further said that Shaheed came out from his room once, stood calmly in the courtyard, looked up and down Madressah from there for some time then returned to his room. Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini spent all night in praying to Almighty Allah (swt).
The sun of 15th August 1988 was about to rise. Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini went to Madressah mosque to pray Fajr Namaz. After offering prayers Shaheed Quaid went upstairs of the Madressah. His guard Zamin Ali went somewhere else. On the gate Abdullah also came in to pray, leaving gate open. In the meantime two gunmen came in to the Madressah. They directly came to Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini's room but since he was on the upper floor of the Madressah they saw him coming downstairs, one of the assailants fired immediately but he only fired one bullet which pierced the heart of Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini. After his arrest, the one who fired revealed that he wanted to fire more bullets but his right hand paralyzed instantaneously as he couldn't move his fingers and his right hand is still paralyzed. Both of the attackers managed to run away but later they were arrested.
Maulana Jawwad Hadi was the first to see Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini lying in his own blood. They took Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini to a nearby hospital but he breathed his last in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.
At the age of 42, Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini left us to meet his absolute creator, to be in the company of his peers, Muhammed Wa Aale Muhammed (Peace be upon them). Five children of Shaheed Quaid Allama Arif ul Hussain Al Hussaini and a nation were orphaned. They are still orphans!
