Rasulullah SA said, “Whoever weeps, or causes someone to weep, or simulates weeping for my son Husain, Paradise is mandated for him.”

Why do we mourn Imam Husain SA? Why has Allah Ta’ala promised Paradise if we weep for his martyrdom in Karbala? What is the philosophy behind it?

Syedna TUS answers these questions in this Majlis, the 24th in the Majalis al Hikma series, a few days before Ashara Mubaraka.

This video is available to view in Dawat ni Zaban and Arabic as well.


It is the unique and auspicious tradition of our Hudaat that we begin each year with zikr and noha of Imam Husain SA. And by the virtue of Imam Husain’s remembrance we receive the barakaat of ‘ilm of Aal-e-Mohammed SA in the ten days of Ashara Mubaraka.

It is indeed a great ne’mat to receive these barakaat from the Dai of Imam-uz-zamaan. It strengthens and rejuvenates our spirits for the upcoming year and increases our darajaat in Aakherat.

In 1442H, al Dai-l-Ajal al-Fatemi Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS will deliver Ashara Mubaraka waaz at Darus Sakina in Bakersfield, California, insha'allah. Waaz Mubarak will be broadcast live at 9 am IST and will be available for replay thereafter. Mumineen are advised to observe the same majlis adab as they would when attending in person.
