The Sublime Message of Imam Hussain[AS] Before Embarking on the Journey of Karbala!
Imam-e-Aali Maqam Imam Hussain[AS],the Leader of youth of the paradise and the Doyen of Martyrs wrote a prolific letter ahead of his lofty journey undertaken for the sake of Almighty Allah.
In this letter,Imam[AS],outlined the rationale behind his journey which seemed perilous obviously and especially in the backdrop of the fact that all the bigwigs in Arab community and the Muslim Ummah had been repeatedly warning Imam Aali Maqam [AS] of the dire consequence that might result from the journey.
Through various sermons and letters,Imam-e-Aali Maqam AS ,the Haamil-e-ilm-e-Imamat and the Son of Baab-e-Madinatul Ilm repeatedly made it extremely evident to the world and especially his close companions and family members about what was he upto and that he knew fully well ,the definite consequence of such a step, but was obliged by his divine duty towards the Risalat of Rasool-e-Khuda [SAWW] and for the protection of unity of Ummah from falling in the trap of Ommayyads.
His words speak of his complete conviction in his cause which is the essence of any sincere human being and every step of his was a complete manifestation of this conviction that Imam-e-Aali Maqam [AS] was practically ready for sacrificing everything and he indeed did, along-side his companions on whom he used to take pride by saying that the kind of companions I have had ,neither my father nor my grandfather had.
In his last will letter to his half brother Muhammad-e-Hanafiya ,who was the Son of Maula Ali[AS] from another wife,Imam AS chalked the broad contours of his divine mission and strategy to achieve his objectives in clear and certain terms ,with absolute frankness.
On many occassions he kept unfolding various dimensions of this movement,which is alive to this day .
