Pearl of Wisdom

to Mu'alla b. Khunays when he came to visit him for Nayruz, 'Do you know what this day is?' to which he replied, may I be your ransom, this is a day to which the Persians attach great importance and in which they give each other gifts.' So Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, 'By the Ancient House in Makkah! That is only because of a much older reason which I will explain to you so that you may understand ... O Mu'alla, verily the day of Nayruz is the day when Allah took the servants' covenants from them that they would worship Him and that they would not associate anything with Him, and that they would believe in His prophets and His divine proofs, and that they would believe in the Imams (AS). This is also the day when the sun rose for the first time ... Every day of Nayruz is a day when we await the Relief [the coming of the Awaited Saviour], for verily it is one of our special days and one of the days of our shi'a. The Persians have kept its significance whereas you have lost it...This is the first day of the Persians' new year, and they have managed to stay alive since having been only thirty thousand in number. The pouring of water on the day of Nayruz has become a practice...'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 59, p. 92, no. 1

When The Skies Wept Blood E-mail

On the Tenth Day, of the First Month of the Islamic calendar, in the year 61; on the hot desert plains of Karbala, a small group of 73 noble individuals were massacred by an army of 70,000 men.
The victims were devout followers of the religion of Islam.
The perpetrators, led by Yazeed, son of Mu'awiyah, claimed to follow that very same religion. It was a day 'When Skies Wept Blood'.

The sacrifice of Karbala is unrivalled from the dawn of time, yet the martyrdom of Hussain and his exalted 72 companions is neglected by the majority of Muslims and non muslims, alike.
Imam Hussain sought to bring justice through this great sacrifice. He did not revive the religion of Islam, he resurrected it.
Redtears brings you a historical documentary looking at the chain of events from the death of the Holy Prophet, Muhammad, to the tragic massacre of Karbala.
