Lesson From Karbala

lesson from karbala
Accept all physical pressure and pain

always on our true faith we steadfastly remain Battle begun unjustly by oppressors

brave Hussain till the end tried to guide aggressors Combine with words, when necessary, more swords

consolidate speech, if it fails, with spears against stubborn warlords Differentiate, by trial, true faithful from false claimants

devilish lovers of worldly pleasures rejected as remnants Expose true identity of governing tyrant

evil Umayyad family who ruled as if invincible giant Face bravely and fight fiercely transgressors

fondly taught Islam’s Prophet to Hussain, the True Successor Gandhi and other freedom fighters won independence

greatly inspired by Hussein’s unforgettable resistance Honour, self-respect, self-determination

Hussein’s call to humanity till world’s termination Invite, instruct, instill in all mankind godly values

indeed such were Islam, Prophet’s (pbuh) and his family’s views Job in life is to perform God-given task

judge results by Godly standards, questions don’t ask. Keep your debt-book clean owe nothing from anyone

king of martyrs refused to meet His Lord having hurt someone Ladies in captivity bravely spread Karbala’s message

lightning and thunderous words hastened tyrants downward passage Martyrdom preferable to life of humiliation under evil-doers

military might never frightens brave good-doers Never despair in struggle against falsehood by small quantity

numbers matter less with sterling quality Objectives of uprising declared publicly at all stages

opportunities utilized maximally for sacred rage Perseverance on truth till the last breath

persistent refusal to surrender evil till death Unending support to Godly Leader’s advice

untiring struggle against ungodly army’s stance. Victory of holy blood over blade of sword

vanquishing might with right, brawn with brain, sword with word Warriors of truth participated from all ages, race, class & sanctuaries

winners in war, those whose message alive over centuries Extra-power & position corrupt ungodly human

extravagance, lifestyle of immature Man Yield total person & possessions to God’s pleasure

youth engage in holy war, not in temporary leisure .Zealous to die for truth, virtue, Laws of God

zest of life is to love God & live for God
