NEVER TOO LATE
‘We will never forget Husayn’
We chant, we cry, we call.
Till our last breath, never will the banner fall!
We are Husayni and we stand tall.
Preparing for Al-Mahdi, Husayn is for all!
The months of ‘Aza are upon us and the Husayni hearts are beating for their master. Breaming with love and loyalty, offering their allegiance with Labayk Ya Husayn! But let us take a pause and reflect on the message of Imam Al- Husayn (as).
He declares as he prepares to leave from Madina h , “ Wa innama kharajtu li talabi-l islahi fi ummaati jaddi ” (Indeed, I am leaving Madinah to reform the ummah of my grandfather). There can be no better guidance for us all than our responsibility to answer the call of ‘ hal minnasireen yansuroona ’ (who is there who would help us), which Imam Husay n made on the day of Ashura.
Reform in Islam has been regarded as a social responsibility, which includes all affairs. In other words, reform in Islam is an effort to remove deficiencies, weaknesses, and corruption from within individuals and hence from society.
The companions of Imam Al- Husayn (as) were normal human beings. Some were recent converts to Islam; others lived in families with dual loyalties; and yet others were just border-line Muslims, however, at the end of the day, they all had tough decisions to make during a critical juncture in their life. We too face decisions that will determine our ultimate choice to ‘Become Husayni’. Watch the videos below on our YouTube Playlist or any social media channels - links below.
To help us with our efforts to ‘Become Husayni’, we have prepared 9 short videos that highlight lessons that can be extracted from the events of Karbala. Starting from Friday 21st August until eve of Ashura. Let us try to implement these and impose on ourselves before others. Let us reform ourselves before it’s too late and inshaAllah with sincere intentions it is never too late to ‘Become Husayni’ .
NEVER TOO LATE
This trip was about starting a one way journey towards self improvement and self building. It was about getting closer to The Almighty and actively awaiting the return of Al Hujjah (afts).
‘The Spiritual Walk’ is a documentary by The World Federation that follows the 3-day walk from Najaf to Kerbala in the shoes of three British Muslims: Abbas Ramji, Farhana Manekia and Sohail Kanji.
