[Friday   Sermon]   The   3   Alifs   to   Live   By   |   How   to   Approach   Our   Desires   -   Maulana   Syed   Muhammad   Rizvi   |   English  

- Importance of reminding ourselves of the mission of Imam Hussain (a.s). - In a will to his brother, Muhammad Hanafia, Imam Hussain (a.s) explains the purpose of his actions in 4 points: -- He negates wrong motives towards himself knowing that people would try to portray him as having ulterior motives. -- He then expresses what his purpose is, to seek reformation in the community of his grandfather. -- He explains the method of the Islamic law that he is using: bidding people to do good and forbidding them from evil. -- And lastly he confirms that what he is doing is continuing the path of his grand father and his father. - Reform should be an ongoing process at an individual and collective level. - Examples of reformation on a personal level: focusing on improving our prayers, reflections of our fasts, giving charity, reflection on our means of livelihood etc.. - Examples of reformation on a social level by taking lessons from Karbala: brotherhood and unity of fellow Muslims in spite of the diversity in race, colour, language and ethnic background, outlook towards Muslim community on a global level, outlook towards non-Muslim etc.. - Importance of responding to Imam Hussain’s(a.s) call by submitting our heart, ears, mind, eyes, opinions and desires to him. - When our heart is longing for something that is not permissible then make the choice that Imam Hussain(a.s)would make. - We are surrounded by different circles around us. - Inner circle are the Shias of the Ahlulbayt. - Bigger circle around it, is the Muslim community. - Outer bigger circle is the humanity at large. - 3 Alif to keep in mind when interacting which each circle of groups: -- Ithaar which means to sacrifice. For the inner circle the expectation is to have willingness to sacrifice for one another. -- Infaaq which means to be charitable. This needs to be applied towards the Muslim community at large. -- Insaaf which means to be just. The minimum requirement towards the humanity at large is to be just towards them. That doesn’t mean you don’t need to be charitable towards them either. - Ilm-ul Ghayb (knowledge of the unseen) is only given to the chosen ones by the grace of Allah.(s.w.t). - Narration of the story of the thirst of Hur and his army to show that Imam Hussain(a.s) had ilm-e ghayb. - Imam Hussain(a.s) did not ask Hur if he had come as a supporter or an enemy. He saw they were thirsty and he quenched their thirst. That’s called humanity. Yet he was denied water in Karbala. - He used his ilm-e ghayb in order to guide others but he would never use it for his own benefit. That was his test and trial. He knew water would be stopped yet he did not fill extra water for his own self. - He personally used less water then others. On the day of Ashura, the most thirsty person was Imam Hussain (a.s). - We need to reflect and see how we treat one another. - Importance for volunteers to realize that those who come for the commemoration are the guests of Imam Hussain(a.s) and the volunteer is the host on behalf of Imam Hussain(a.s). So they should treat the guests well. - It’s the kindness that Imam Hussain (a.s) showed towards them, that eventually brought back Hur to Imam’s camp and he then attained martyrdom.
