Imam Husain's Journey to Iraq Print E-mail
Articles

As we approach the month of Muharram, we will attempt to cover the journey of Imam al-Hussain (A) from Mecca to Kerbala.

When it came to Husain's knowledge that Yazid had appointed ‘Amr Ibn Sa’id Ibn al-’As as the head of an army, ordering him to take charge of the pilgrimage caravans and to kill al-Husain (A) wherever he could find him [1], he decided to leave Mecca before finishing the pilgrimage and be satisfied with performing only the ‘umra because he hated that the sanctity of the House might otherwise be violated.[2]

Mecca: Al-Husain (A) delivers a Sermon

Before departing, al-Husain (A) stood up to deliver a sermon. He said:

All praise is due to Allah The Will of Allah be done. There is no might except in Allah Allah has blessed His Messenger. Death is inscribed on Adam's children like a necklace on a girl's neck. My passion to be reunited with my ancestors is like that of Jacob for Joseph, and the demise I shall soon meet is better for me. I see my limbs being torn by speeding steeds in the desert between al-Nawawis and Karbala’, so they shall fill, through my death, hollow bellies and starved pouches. There is no avoiding a day recorded by the Pen. Whatever pleases Allah also pleases us, we Ahl al-Bayt. We shall be patient as we face His trial, and He shall give us in full the rewards due to those who persevere. The Prophet's offspring shall not deviate from His path Rather, they shall be gathered before him in the presence of the most Holy One. His eyes shall be cooled upon seeing them assembled, and he shall fulfill his promise. Anyone among us who is ready to sacrifice himself and is determined to meet Allah should join our departing party, for I shall depart in the morning if Allah Almighty so wills”. [3]

His departure took place on the 8th of Thul-Hijjah, 60 AH / September 12, 680 AD. He was accompanied by his family, slaves, and Shi’as from the people of Hijaz, Bara and Kufa who joined him during his sojourn in Mecca. He gave each one of them ten dinars and a camel to carry his luggage. [4]

The KSIMC of London are co-hosting with Ridhayatullah Theatre

The Harbinger of Hussain

PART I (75min) is the historical account of Muslim ibn Aqeel, an individual living in 7th Century CE who served as a selfless emissary to deliver a letter of peace, love and unity to lands in Mesopotamia against all odds. The letter was written by a Imam Hussain, who took a stand against social injustices, discrimination on faith grounds and intolerance when nobody else dared to. His letter invited people of all backgrounds to join him in bringing about unity and interfaith harmony.
 
PART II (50min) focusses on the three sons of Muslim ibn Aqeel who stood for the same virtues as their father in supporting Imam Hussain before meeting a similar fate. Their resolution in dedicating their lives for the cause of good presents young people and children with a resolve to value steadfastness, patience and Godliness in testing times of the present day.

Showing at The Arts depot studio theatre, 5 Nether Street, Tally Ho Corner, North Finchley, London, N12 0GA

Tickets are available online here

Show times are:
Saturday 8 October: Parts I & II at 12pm and a later show of Parts I & II at 4pm
