Lady Zainab ~ a woman you should have heard of #ShareHumanity

Lady Zainab, daughter of Imam Ali and Supreme Lady Fatima, as well as sister of Imam al Hassan and Imam al Husain; thus, the first and only granddaughter of Prophet Muhammad. By this kinship and being raised up by these infallible parents, Lady Zeinab, thus, belongs to Prophet Muhammad and his Household whose prime mission is to reveal Islam as a complete life style based on divine knowledge, values and principles and share it with humanity. #ShareHumanity She is known for her key role on the Day of Ashura (10th of Sacred Muharram), 61 Hegira. She was shoulder-to-shoulder with Imam al Husain. Imam Husain was championing for his Imamate role which is appointed by Allah to manage world affairs, in general, and Muslims affairs, in particular, at all levels and educate them. Immamate versus the imposed caliphate system that shed blood, ruled by sword and accumulated wealth from the pockets of citizens. On the Day of Ashura Imam Husain was a warrior combatting the imposed caliphate illegal rule, abuse of power, distortion of Islam, corruption and terrorism. Lady Zainab was of a great support of Imam Husain in this challenge. She discussed with Imam Husain his strategy of defence. Defence because Imam Husain didn’t start the war but rather he defended his life and Islam which he exclusively represents along with Prophet Muhammad and his Household. Lady Zainab role was also significant in narrating in details what happended on this historical confrontation, exposing the reasons of why Imam Husain refused to pledge any kind of loyality or acceptance to such a system. Without Lady Zainab, nothing could be known about Ashura. Imam Husain was beseiged in Karbala with his family members and only seventy of his supporters as the rest which could possible be in hundreds were all arrested and emprisoned fearing that their support would indeed bring a great defeat to the rule. The army of the imposed caliphate collected about three thousand fighters most of them were mercenary. Imam Husain kept reminding all of these soldiers of who he is exposing the misleaading propaganda of the ruling system. Imam Husain, his family members (excluding his son Imam Ali who was sick unable to join the battle) and his supporters were brutality massacred. Lady Zainab continued the mission. Now the entire humanit ows Lady Zeinab for her role in multiplying the number of those who belive in the cause of Imam Husain and thus take side with justice and right is right against oppression. Millions of Ahlul-Bayt followers in addition to the lovers of Imam al Husain from all walks of life, religions or sects pay respect to this lagendary personality and head to Karbala to commomorate the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Husain, peace be upon him. World media including mainstream media have started to move their cameras and focus zoom on this world phenomenan known for its peaceful gathering and charitable donations to satisfy the needs of visitors on the road to Karbala. Lady Zeinab, the intellectual fruit of the divine matching marriage of Imam Ali and Supreme Lady Fatima inherited all the infallible traits and pure divine knowledge and aptitudes to take the lead and continued, and actually devoted her entire life, in an educational mission demonstrating and interpreting Islam as purely revealed to Prophet Muhammad, May Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Household. She educated women communitte in the Holy City of al Kufa, in Iraq. Her role and personality still radiant and empowering for those who want to say no when no is a must. Sheikh Maash, a scholar from the school of Ahlul-Bayt, says: “Lady Zainab took the lead in education women in the Holy City of al Kufa. By herself, she was a complete university.” Sheikh Maash added that Lady Zainab could memorise the lecture of her mother Supreme Lady Fatima and restate it- extraordinary or divine ability at age of three.” “She is acknowledged without getting education but yet her knowledge is directly from Allah- it is not an acquisitive knowledge but gifted. That is what our top jurisdiction scholars state. Lady Zainab is the second female member immediately following her mother Supreme Lady Fatima among the Household of Prophet Mohammad, may Allah’s blessings be upon them. Lady Zainab was born on 4th of Jamadah the first, according to Islamic calender.

In his final sermon, Prophet Muhammad, May Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Household, aslo appointed Imam Ali as the first exclusive successor. However, the coup d’etat arranged by the caliphates who imposed themselves to rule the affairs and wealth of the Muslim community spoiled the plan set by Allah. Thus, Immate has been versus caliphate regimes.

The caliphate regimes ruled by sword, terrorism and deviation from Islam; moreover, creating copies and copies of a Islam up to reaching the last baby Daish.

Prophet Muammad announcement of Imam Ali as immediate and exclusive successor to the prophethood mission was cut by the scissors of the caliphates.

Thus, Shia, followers of Imam Ali emerged staying steadfast adhered to what heard from the mouth of Prophet Muhammad repeatedly that it is Ali and the infallible Imams who must be exclusively in charge or telling what Islam is and ruling Muslims’ wide spectrum of affairs.

These infallible members are Prophet Muhammad, Imam Ali, Supreme Lady Fatima (daughter of Prophet Muhammad and wife of Imam Ali; the couple brought two infallible Imam: Imam al Hassan and al Husain. From Imam al Husain, the other 9 infallible Imams descend and they are: Imam Ali son of Husain, Imam Muhammad al Baqir, Imam Jaafar al Sadiq, Imam Musa al Kathim, Imam Ali al Ridha, Imam Mohammad al Jawad, Imam Ali al Hadi, Imam al Hassan al Askari and the twelfth Imam is Imam Mohammad al Mahdi. Each of the nine is an infallible son of an infallible. All of them along with Prophet Mohammad are called Ahlul-Bayt (i.e. the Household of Prophet Muhammad). This Household has received the pure knowledge from Allah and inhereted it from Prophet Muhammad. Imam Ali recieved the whole knowledge from Prophet Muhammad and Supreme Lady Fatima wrote every word Prophet Muhammad said. She used also to send either Imam al Hassan or Imam al Husain to copy his words and them in record. in a result, she compiled everything in a book entitled the Moshaf of Fatima (i.e. the book of Fatima). This book is not for public; it is inheretied from Imam to another. It also contains the narrations that tell about the ends of times, the era seems to be living now.
Prophet Muhammad established the state. Imam Ali established the rule of Justice. All of the, spread knowledge of all fields including science. Imam al Husain fought the corruption of the rule of caliphate Yazid in a battle the army of Yazid started and launched in Karbala. Yazid and his leaders as well as the army brutally killed Imam Husain and companion and family in Karbala. But the word of Imam Husain stayed shinning and millions of people commorate the anniversary of his martyrdom in two days called Ashura and al Arbaeen.

Greetings fromKarbala- Documentary Film, part 1:Ashoura, part 2: alArbaeen Why do we miss al Husain the Lord of Reform?سلام من كربلاء- فيلم وثائقي من جزئين: عاشوراء والاربعين

Both Imam Mohammad al Baqir and Imam Jafar al Sadiq could successfully andfully continue the establishment of the jurisdiction and science of Islam. That means sharing the pure divine knowledge intended to reach humanity to build human civilization upon. Europe at then was in dark ages. The algebra, for instance, was established by Jabir bin Hayyan who was a student to Imam al Sadiq. The other three sects that Sunna today follow were established by three students of Imam al Sadiq; howver, they were not legible to set a sect by their own with the presence of the infallible. Imam al Sadiq kept debating them in public. All of the Imams kept running their divine mission training and educating. Shia stayed adhered to the Imam and their education. They kept practicing committment to the Imams. They even suffered from all kinds of wars, killing and genocides from the imposed caliphate regimes over time but they successfully kept the treasure knowledge of Ahlul-Byt SAFE from any deviation. That is the minor role of Shia scholars on top of whom are the top religious authorities called the Marji’ or the reference, like for example, Sayid Ali al Sistani in Iraq who in one word has driven the nation to defeat Daish, the baby of the deviated copy of Islam.

It is as crucial as this impact is the statement cut by the scissors of the imposed caliphate is. Husain who said NO when NO was a must
https://fatimaalkhansa.wordpress.com/2016/03/06/husain-who-said-no-when-no-was-a-must/

Ali is the exclusice successor of Prophet Muhammad and the infallible Imams.

Why? Because, the whole word has witnessed the difference. Immammate versus caliphate.

Supreme Lady Fatima took the lead in defending her rights facing the caliphate face-toface urging him to return the land she inhereted from her father – the Land of Fadak. Sunna Feminism are now calling for their rights of equality in inheritance!

Any way, this humanity is yet awaiting for a day, a Promised Day of Justice and Great Global Governance led by the twelfth Imam Mohammad al Mahdi along with the son of Lady Marry Issa or Jesus.

Imam al Mahdi will announce his reappearance from Mecca while Prophet Issa will announce his reapparance from al Quds in Palestine.

This day is coming. And these infallible leaders will take the stage again. We will be hearing the purest words from the purest persons. We will enjoy the most “moving moments” quoting the guest expert in this video, again. At that time, we will all be that kind of citizen who enjoy brotherhood and sisterhood on this globe.

Al Khansa Family the first who launched the Hussainy Sessions and made Lebanon that revolutionary against tyranny. 

Al Khansa Family (mine) the first who launched the Hussainy Sessions in Lebanon dating back to during a tough period under the attrocities and slaughtering of Ottoman empire. 

Respected Hussein Yusuf al Khansa is the founder of the Hussainy Sessions (Majlis Aza Husainy) in Lebanon. These Husainy gathering sessions helped spreading the high morals of  Imam Husain revolution against tyrant Yazid. 

Men guards used to keep an eye on the roads leading to the fathering to make sure safety is there for people coming and gathering to listen to the word of Imam Hussain and how his values help shaping our present and future. 

These Majlis have helped strengthening Shia community against all kinds of attrocities starting from the ottoman empire up till reaching the Israelis several wars against Lebanon and also against Da’ish and salfist wahhabi plots to disturb Lebanon by plots administered and funded by al Saud and al Khalifa. 

Husain is alive in our blood defeating these tyrants and kicking them out. Their fall is like domino shaken by a child of us.

Happy and proud enough to be a fruit of this good tree~ Happy being al Khansa~ Happy being Fatima, a servant for supreme Lady Fatima. Thank you dad. Than you mum. 

Thank you the heads of the shrine of Imam Husain Sheikh Abd al Mahdi al Karbalai and General Manager of Karbala TV Sayid Haidar Jelowkhan~you are my bigger family that helped broadcasting all this range of documentaries and live coverage to speak the mind of Husain – a purified word and a world that is polluted from top and beneath. 

May Allah reward us the maximum love of Imam Husain, peace be upon him. 

Watch all documentaries (documentary page on the blog) I have granted God success to make in the way of Husain to spread his word to the world.

#شخصية_اليوم 

الحاج حسين يوسف الخنسا البعلبكي هو المؤسس الأول لإقامة المجالس الحسينية   في لبنان و لنشر  و تثبيت فكر و معاني و ثورة  أهل بيت عليهم السلام   
هو من بلدة المغيري قضاء جبيل، انتقل إلى بيروت وبدأ بإقامة المجالس في منطقة المصيطبة، وبسبب تشدد السلطة العثمانية آنذاك ومنعها اقامة المجالس الحسينية، كان يقف بعض الشباب حراسة على الطرقات المؤدية الى المجلس خشية وصول الشرطة بشكل مفاجئ.

 

اصبح من المعروف لدى السلطات العثمانية أن الحاج حسين يقيم المجالس العاشورائية رغما عنهم، فلقب الحاج حسين بالخنساء البعلبكي وبات ينادى بهذا الإسم إذا ما سُئل عنه لتمويه هويته.
وبعد انهيار السلطنة العثمانية وبدء الانتداب الفرنسي في لبنان،  اطلقت حرية اقامة المجالس الحسينية، فانتقل الحاج حسين إلى بلدة الغبيري وأكمل فيها اقامة المجالس بشكل اكبر واكثر حرية، وبعد رحيله، أكمل أولاده الحاج أبو مشهور الخنسا والحاج أبو سامي والحاج أبو رياض مسيرة والدهم، وما زالت المجالس العاشورائية تقام في الغبيري إلى يومنا هذا.

بعد وفاة الحاج حسين يوسف الخنساء كتب أحد الشعراء  شعر بحقه وكتب بعض هذه الأبيات  على قبره :

يا سائلاً عمّن ثوى بأمانِ

في ذا الضريح وفاز بالرضوانِ

مهلاً فثاويهِ أبو الجود الذي

يتحدّث القاصي به والداني

أحيا لنا ذكر الحسين سميّهِ

سبط الرسول وفارس الميدانِ

ولذا دعاه ربّه لجنانهِ

ليعيش بين الحور والولدانِ

فاقرأ مع الأدهارِ تاريخاً وقل

سار الحسين لجنّة الرحمنِ

سنة 1368

الحاج حسين يوسف داوود الخنساء أسم كتبه التاريخ و لن ينساه أبدا . 

التاريخ لن ينسى مساعدتك للفقراء ولا للمحتاجين لن ينسى البسمة التي زرعتها في قلوب اليتامى . 

#كلمة أخيرة و تمني الى كبار عائلتنا المحترمين و الأعزاء جدنا الحاج حسين مؤسس جمعية ال خنساء توفى و ترك الأمانة بيد أولاده و رفاق دربه و أولاده تركوا الأمانة بين أيديكم .

أمانة الحاج حسين يوسف الخنساء غالية على قلوب أحفاد أحفاده  المطلوب يد في يد لنبني هذه الجمعية من جديد لكي نبقى الأقوى  و مخرز في عين كل من يريد أن يفرقنا أو يهين كرامتنا و عزتنا . 

#الفاتحة لروحه الطاهرة  و لروح كل من مات على ولاية مولانا و أميرنا علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام . 

#صور المروحوم الحاج حسين يوسف داوود الخنساء 

#صور من جبانة بير حسن حيث دفن . 

#صور من ضيعة عائلتنا الأبية المغيري

World’s Biggest Pilgrimage Now Underway, And Why You’ve Never Heard of it!

 24 November 2014 | Updated 24 January 2015

Sayed Mahdi al-Modarresi Faith Leader, Lecturer, Author of “The Lost Testament”

It’s not the Muslim Hajj, or the Hindu Kumbh Mela.. Known as Arbaeen, it is the world’s most populous gathering and you’ve probably never heard of it! Not only does the congregation exceed the number of visitors to Mecca (by a factor of five, in fact), it is more significant than Kumbh Mela, since the latter is only held every third year. In short, Arbaeen dwarfs every other rally on the planet, reaching twenty million last year. That is a staggering %60 of Iraq’s entire population, and it is growing year after year.

2014-11-24-alalam_635233148121921499_25f_4x3.jpg

Above all, Arbaeen is unique because it takes place against the backdrop of chaotic and dangerous geopolitical scenes. Daesh (aka ‘Islamic State’) sees the Shia as their mortal enemy, so nothing infuriates the terror group more than the sight of Shia pilgrims gathering for their greatest show of faith.

There’s another peculiar feature of Arbaeen. While it is a distinctively Shia spiritual exercise, Sunnis, even Christians, Yazidis, Zoroastrians, and Sabians partake in both the pilgrimage as well as serving of devotees. This is remarkable given the exclusive nature of religious rituals, and it could only mean one thing: people regardless of color or creed see Hussein as a universal, borderless, and meta-religious symbol of freedom and compassion.

Why you have never heard of it probably has to do with the fact that the press is concerned more with negative, gory, and sensationalized tabloids, than with positive, inspiring narratives, particularly when it comes to Islam. If a few hundred anti-immigration protestors take to the streets in London and they will make headlines.. The same level of airtime is awarded to a pro-democracy march in Hong Kong or an anti-Putin rally in Russia.. But a gathering of twenty million in obstreperous defiance of terror and injustice somehow fails even to make it into the TV news ticker! An unofficial media embargo is imposed on the gargantuan event despite the story having all the critical elements of an eye-catching feature; the staggering numbers, the political significance, the revolutionary message, the tense backdrop, as well as originality.. But when such a story does make it through the editorial axe of major news outlets, it creates shockwaves and touches the most random people.

Among the countless individuals inspired by it, is a young Australian man I met several years ago who had converted to Islam. Evidently, no one takes such a life-altering decision lightly, so upon inquiry he told me it all started in 2003. One evening, as he was watching the news only to be drawn by scenes of millions streaming towards a holy city known as Karbala, chanting the name of a man he had never heard of: “Hussein”. For the first time in decades, in a globally televised event, the world had caught an glimpse into previously suppressed religious fervor in Iraq.

With the Sunni Ba’athist regime toppled, Western viewers were eager to see how Iraqis would respond to a new era free from dictatorship persecution. The ‘Republic of Fear’ had crumbled and the genie had irreversibly escaped from the bottle. “Where is Karbala, and why is everyone heading in its direction?” he recalls asking himself. “Who is this Hussein who motivates people to defy all the odds and come out to mourn his death fourteen centuries after the fact?”

What he witnessed in that 60-second report was especially moving because the imagery was unlike any he had ever seen. A fervent sense of connection turned human pilgrims into iron filings, swarming together other as they drew closer to what could only be described as Hussein’s irresistible magnetic field. “If you want to see a living, breathing, lively religion, come to Karbala” he said.

How could a man who was killed 1396 years ago be so alive and have such a palpable presence today that he makes millions take up his cause, and view his plight as their own? People are unlikely to be drawn into a dispute (much less one that transpired in ancient times) unless they have a personal interest in the matter. On the other hand, if you felt someone was engaged in a fight over your right to freedom, your prerogative to be treated justly, and your entitlement to a life of dignity, you would feel you had a vested interest and would empathize with him to the point where conversion to his beliefs is not a far-fetched possibility.

The Ultimate Tragedy

Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, is revered by Muslims as the “Prince of Martyrs”. He was killed in Karbala on a day which became known as Ashura, the tenth day of the Islamic month of Muharram, having refused to pledge allegiance to the corrupt and tyrannical caliph, Yazid.

He and his family and companions were surrounded in the desert by an army of 30,000, starved of food and water, then beheaded in the most macabre manner, a graphic tale recounted from pulpits every year since the day he was slain. Their bodies were mutilated. In the words of the English historian Edward Gibbon: “In a distant age and climate, the tragic scene of the death of Hussein will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.”

Shia Muslims have since mourned the death of Hussein, in particular on the days of Ashura, then, forty days later, on Arbaeen. Forty days is the usual length of mourning in many Muslim traditions. This year, Arba’een falls on Friday 12 December.

Long Trek

I travelled to Karbala, my own ancestral home, to find out for myself why the city is so intoxicating. What I witnessed proved to me that even the widest-angle camera lens is too narrow to capture the spirit of this tumultuous, yet peaceful gathering.

An avalanche of men, women and children, but most visibly black-veiled women, fill the eye from one end of the horizon to the other.The crowds were so huge that they caused a blockade for hundreds of miles.

The 425 mile distance between the southern port city of Basra and Karbala is a long journey by car, but it’s unimaginably arduous on foot. It takes pilgrims a full two weeks to complete the walk. People of all age groups trudge in the scorching sun during the day and in bone-chilling cold at night. They travel across rough terrain, down uneven roads, through terrorist strongholds, and dangerous marshlands. Without even the most basic amenities or travel gear, the pilgrims carry little besides their burning love for “The Master” Hussein. Flags and banners remind them, and the world, of the purpose of their journey:

O self, you are worthless after Hussein.
My life and death are one and the same,
So be it if they call me insane!

The message recalls an epic recited by Abbas, Hussein’s half-brother and trusted lieutenant, who was also killed in the Battle of Karbala in 680AD while trying to fetch water for his parched nieces and nephews. With security being in the detrimental state that makes Iraq the number one headline in the world, no one doubts that this statement is genuine in every sense.

Free lunch.. And dinner, and breakfast!

One part of the pilgrimage which will leave every visitor perplexed is the sight of thousands of tents with makeshift kitchens set up by local villagers who live around the pilgrims’ path. The tents (called ‘mawkeb’) are places where pilgrims get practically everything they need. From fresh meals to eat and a space to rest, to free international phone calls to assure concerned relatives, to baby diapers, to practically every other amenity, free of charge. In fact, pilgrims do not need to carry anything on the 400 mile journey except the clothes they wear.

More intriguing is how pilgrims are invited for food and drink. Mawkeb organizers intercept the pilgrims’ path to plead with them to accept their offerings, which often includes a full suite of services fit for kings: first you can a foot massage, then you are offered a delicious hot meal, then you are invited to rest while your clothes are washed, ironed, then returned to you after a nap. All complimentary, of course.

For some perspective, consider this: In the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake, and with worldwide sympathy and support, the UN World Food Programme announced delivery of half a million meals at the height of its relief efforts.. The United States military, launched Operation Unified Response, bringing together the massive resources of various federal agencies and announced that within five months of the humanitarian catastrophe, 4.9 million meals had been delivered to Haitians. Now compare that with over 50 million meals per day during Arbaeen, equating to about 700 million meals for the duration of the pilgrimage, all financed not by the United Nations or international charities, but by poor laborers and farmers who starve to feed the pilgrims and save up all year round so that visitors are satisfied. Everything, including security is provided mostly by volunteer fighters who have one eye on Daesh, and another on protecting the pilgrim’s path. “To know what Islam teaches,” says one Mawkeb organizer, “don’t look at the actions of a few hundred barbaric terrorists, but the selfless sacrifices exhibited by millions of Arbaeen pilgrims.”

In fact, Arbaeen should be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records in several categories: biggest annual gathering, longest continuous dining table, largest number of people fed for free, largest group of volunteers serving a single event, all under the imminent threat of suicide bombings.

Unmatched Devotion

Just looking at the multitudes leaves you breathless. What adds to the spectacle is that, as the security conditions worsen, even more people are motivated to challenge the terrorist threats and march in defiance. Thus, the pilgrimage isn’t a mere religious exercise, but a bold statement of resistance. Videos have been posted online showing how a suicide bomber blows himself up in the midst of the pilgrims, only to have the crowds turn out in even greater numbers, chanting in unison:

If they sever our legs and hands,
We shall crawl to the Holy Lands!

The horrific bomb blasts which occur year-round, mostly targeting Shia pilgrims and taking countless lives, illustrate the dangers facing Shias living in Iraq, and the insecurity that continues to plague the country. Yet the imminent threat of death doesn’t seem to deter people – young and old, Iraqis and foreigners – from making the dangerous journey to the holy city.

It isn’t easy for an outsider to understand what inspires the pilgrims. You see women carrying children in their arms, old men in wheelchairs, people on crutches, and blind seniors holding walking sticks. I met a father who had travelled all the way from Basra with his disabled boy. The 12-year-old had cerebral palsy and could not walk unassisted. So for a part of the trek the father put the boy’s feet on top of his and held him by the armpits as they walked. It is the kind of story out of which Oscar-winning films are made, but it seems Hollywood is more concerned with comic heroes and with real life heroes whose superpower is their courage and commitment.

Golden Dome of Hussein

Visitors to the shrine of Hussein and his brother Abbas are not driven by emotion alone. They cry be reminded of the atrocious nature of his death, in doing so, they reaffirm their pledge to his ideals.

The first thing that pilgrims do upon reaching his shrine is recite the Ziyara, a sacred text which summarizes the status of Hussein. In it, they begin the address by calling Hussein the “inheritor” of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus. There is something profound in making this proclamation. It shows that Hussein’s message of truth, justice, and love for the oppressed is viewed as an inseparable extension of all divinely-appointed prophets.

People go to Karbala not to marvel at the city’s landscape – lush with date palms, or to admire the mausoleum’s physical beauty, or to shop, be entertained, or to visit ancient historical sites. They go to cry. To mourn and experience the angelic aura of Hussein. They enter the sacred shrine weeping and lamenting the greatest act of sacrifice ever seen.

It is as though every person has established a personal relationship with the man they have never seen. They talk to him and call out his name; they grip the housing of his tomb; they kiss the floor leading into the shrine; they touch its walls and doors in the same manner one touches the face of a long-lost friend. It is a picturesque vista of epic proportions. What motivates these people is something that requires an understanding of the character and status of Imam Hussein and the spiritual relationship that those who have come to know him have developed with his living legend.

If the world understood Hussein, his message, and his sacrifice, they would begin to understand the ancient roots of Daesh and its credo of death and destruction. It was centuries ago in Karbala that humanity witnessed the genesis of senseless monstrosities, epitomized in the murderers of Hussein. It was pitch black darkness v. Absolute shining light, an exhibition of vice v. a festival of virtue, hence the potent specter of Hussein today. His presence is primordially woven into every facet of their lives. His legend encourages, inspires, and champions change for the better, and no amount of media blackout can extinguish its light.

“Who is this Hussein”? For hundreds of millions of his followers, a question this profound, which can cause people to relinquish their religion for another, can be answered only when you have marched to the shrine of Hussein on foot.
