Imaam Hussein fought to save and honour Islam against the tyranny of Yazeed and his stands. Maulana Imroz mostly focused at the theme of Shahadat (sacrifice)of Imaam Hussain. He started his speech from Hzt Ibrahim(A.S) imamat and ended with Ahl e Bayt. We being a Muslim respect Amir e Muhawiha(R.A) and he was not responsible for his son Yazeed’s sins. This was the battle of Truth and Falsehood (Haq o Batil for two different theories. It was not for the kingship. Some scholars nowadays are propagating in favour of Yazeed which is wrong. Like Ibrahim(A.S) and Nimrood, there could be no compromise on Truth or Falsehood. Truth Alhumdulillah won and Imam Hussain (R.A) names lives on around the world. He is also leader of youth in Jannah as per prophet Mohammad (saw) said, and nobody remembers Yazeed and Ibn Ziad in good words. He also mentioned the importance of having love and respect of the Ahle Bayt from the Quran and Hadiths . It is mandatory upon all Muslims to have love and respect for the family of the holy prophet, namely the prophet, Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Fatima, Imaam Hassan and Imaam Hussein (R.A). After Isha Br. Afroz invited the chief guest speaker Allama Mohammad Ayyub Chishti, qadri (Imam and Khateeb Masjid Auliya Allah in Surrey). He narrated few Quran verses (Sura Maida) and Hadiths. He explained the priority of prophets on each other and then our beloved prophet Mohammad (SAW) status among those. Who would be nearest to the Prophet(saw) would definitely have more respect than others i.e. Prophet’s wives, daughters, sons, relatives and all companions. He spoke of Imam Hussain’s greatest sacrifice of life for the sake of Deen that we have today. Maulana Ayub also said that it is no doubt that Panjtan Pak (Prophet Muhammad (SAW), Ali (R.A.), Fatima (R.A.), Hassan and Hussain (R.A), are Ahle Bayt but Prophet’s close family members and relatives are also the Ahle Bayt and it is proved through Hadiths. The program finished with Salaat o Salaam and Duaa made by Allama Mohammad Ayyub ,everyone left after having a delicious dinner.
