The Tragedy

The Tragedy

Tragedy for all of mankindAlong with his few companions and family members, He stood firm defending the truth, to never surrender. Let the events of Karbala bring precious unity, Especially between our dear brothers, Shia or Sunni. The tragedy of Karbala indeed, is a tragedy of humanity: A bloody struggle to preserve Islam, the source of ultimate security.

Tragedy for all of mankindCome, come, sit with me –
Let me tell you of an awful tragedy.
Our Prophet cries because of this bloody history –
Shall we not bother and just sit idly?

Whether we are Shi’i or Sunni,
Let me ask you, is it wrong to love the Prophet’s family?
Say: “I’m a Muslim, I dislike disunity.”
Say the truth, tell everyone about this bloody history.

10th of Muharram…

…indeed has filled the page of history…
…with a dark, bloody, painful tragedy
in a place called Karbala, a barren land…
…the blood of Hussain, flows within its sand…

72 people versus an army of tens of thousands of well-equipped soldiers…?
Against none other but the Holy Prophet’s family members…?
Like a lamb surrounded by numerous evil foxes,
Thirsty to shed its blood, while ignoring Divine curse.

Oh, what’s wrong with us
That we neglect our Prophet’s sadness –
Have we lost our sense of humanity
That we no longer have a sense of sympathy? (at least!)

O Hussain,

Our apology that the eyes no longer shed tears,
Our apology that the hearts no longer bleed –
While you were wounded with swords, arrows, and spears
We just concluded that it was but Allah’s decree…

Have the hearts turn into a hard-core stone
That we no longer lament on Husain who died alone…?
Along with his few companions and family members,
He stood firm defending the truth, to never surrender.

Let the events of Karbala bring precious unity,
Especially between our dear brothers, Shia or Sunni.
The tragedy of Karbala indeed, is a tragedy of humanity:
A bloody struggle to preserve Islam, the source of ultimate security.

A reminder to stand together against oppression and injustice,
A reminder to promote the message of truth, justice and peace…
The issue of Karbala belongs to all Muslims and the rest of humanity.
The issue of Karbala will always be a light, illuminating the soul continuously…

    what came to my mind ,,when i saw bloody history,,,was the life is in the blood,,,another words we lived or living their lives,,,we did not liked our lives we chose their lives over our own,,, we thought we are doing god a service,,,on the end of the path many people get depress and many get wounded and rejected by wonded people , or ignorant people , and those thieves that stold our money are not willing to make up for our losses and be become another jesus who is suffering and dieing for the sake of rightousness,,,the quran call it the old fiction,,,the trajedy is when the old fiction become todays fact ,,becomes the reality of our lives,then it is too late ,no turning back,,no where to run , no where to hide,,,we may ask where is jesus ,where is moses where is mohmad now that can help us??????now i see that when they were send by god among us we did not know them,,,,we did not help them in any way,, we help the pator the molla , the rabi, we helped the sinners, and the rightouss was suffering for the sake of a coraped government,,,,,, and as usual nobay cares , no body understand , and no body helps even if they had millions,,,,life goes on,,,next generations are comming,,,god have mercy on us...
