Join Presenter Rebecca Masterton & her guest Gulam Abbas Lakha as they discuss lessons that we can learn from Imam Hussain, Abu Fadhil Abbas & Imam Sajjad. The Tragedy of Karbala and Its Implications for the Self True progress and reform requires not only desire and hope, but commitment and sacrifice. If we want to move forward we have to make deliberate and continual steps, starting from the very basics of our deen, and couple this with regular, intense self-examination and passion for the goal. . .
Injustice against the Courageous Daughters of Islam Like her mother, Lady Zainab was born into a household blooming with the choicest blessings of the Almighty. They both had the greatest of upbringings - one by the Prophet and Lady Khadija, the other by Imam Ali and Lady Fatima (peace be upon them all). The tragedies that Lady Zainab faced were many: the Ummah committed atrocities against her blessed family, they were treated as prisoners in the cities that they used to live in, they were prevented from mourning their losses, and what was rightfully theirs was snatched away . . .
Imam Hussain - The Martyr Of Islam The struggle between justice and oppression and the clash between truth and falsehood is as old as human existence on earth. Almighty God chose and appointed under His prerogative, great Prophets and Messengers like Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon them all) to lead mankind towards the Right Path. he message they left is that the Right can never be subdued by the Might. The Might vanishes but the Right survives. Imam Hussain emulated the footsteps of the great Prophets of God and has left indelible mark in the history. His struggle against the injustices and oppression will never be forgotten. . .
Impacts of Karbala on the Vigilance of Muslims Unlike a hasty approach to the event of Karbala which may reflect the idea that the revolution of Imam Husain was unfulfilled and it was an unsuccessful struggle, when we carefully study the historical events after the tragedy of Karbala we will, no doubt, come to the conclusion that the revolution of Imam Husain was not only successful in its own nature, but was also the major cause of all the revolutionary movements which took place after Karbala. In fact, Karbala, in the history of Islam should be regarded as a turning point in the reforming of Muslims . . .
A Glance at the Life of the Holy Prophet of Islam
Author: Dar Rah Haqq's Board of Writers
Translator's: N. Tawheedi
The book starts with a look at the pre-Islamic world order. It deals with not only the events that occurred during the life of the Prophet, but also the philosophy and thinking behind the Prophet's actions. This is a great book to read for those interested in an introductory guide to the life of the Prophet.
This book not only presents an inspiring material but it is also based on authentic historical documents. One of its salient features is that the author has taken extreme care in narrating historical events and at the same time he has endeavoured as a research scholar, to approach them with an analytic mind also. Another interesting feature of this book is that it is absolutely free from heresies and concocted stories invented by vested interests. This book gives full details of the entire life of the Holy Prophet of Islam.
The Life Of Muhammad The Prophet
Author: S. Saeed Akhtar Rizvi
This book was first published in 1971 as part of the Islamic Correspondence Course run by Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania. The idea behind writing this book was to satisfy the needs of our new generation - the youths and students, as well as recent converts, who are unable to study the scholastic books written by the Muslim scholars and whose only source of information seems to be the biased writings of orientalists presented as "objective" and "authentic" studies.
