Mulla Bassim al-Karbalaei recites a eulogy for Imam Hussain (a.s.) and his tragedies over 1300 years since Imam Hussain's death and oppressions. Imam Hussain is the grandson of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (s.a.w.).

على الرغم من أن الامام الحسين توفي منذ ما يقارب 1300 عام , إلا أن شهادته وكفاحه ومحنته هي مصدر الهام الملايين في جميع انحاء العالم اليوم. الملايين تبكي وتحزن عليه كما لو أنه توفي بالامس. قصيدة الرثاء هذه هي استذكار لآل محمد وكفاحهم واضطهادهم. ضرب الصدر ليس فقط تعبيرا ثقافيا عن الحزن ولكنه في الأساس يعبر عن مشاركة آل محمد في مأساتهم ويخلق جوا من الحزن. كما يظهر أن حبهم هام ونقي ويثيب الله تعالى عليه

Despite that Imam Hussain died over 1300 years ago, his martyrdom, struggle and tribulation is an inspiration to millions around the world today. Millions mourn and cry for him, as if he died yesterday.

This eulogy is a remembarance of the family of Mohammed and their struggles and oppression. The chest beating as just a cultural way of mourning, many different cultures have their own ways of mourning and grieving. Chest beating is like clapping, it has no significant harm to the body. The foundation of mourning the Holy Prophet Mohammed (saw) and his family, those who strived in the way of Allah (swt), represents joining them in their tragedy and creates a sense of grief ad sadness for them. Showing love for them is important, pure, and rewardable by Allah (swt), and is a command of the Holy Quraan:

قُل لَّا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلَّا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَى
(Surat 42, ayaat 23)


During the time of Imam Hussain (as), the Islamic state was being ruled by an unjust leader: Yazid. Yazid openly went against Islamic teachings, such as drinking and gambling. Yazid has ordered Imam Hussain to give him his allegiance, but the Imam refused, keeping the protection of Islam in his mind. An Islamic state was meant to establish justice, peace and unity between all religions, (weather they be Muslim, Christian, Jew, Atheist or of any religious belief or background) races and genders. Yazid had gone against this.

Imam Hussain, and his family who are the family of the Holy Prophet Mohammed, and his companions were all put under siege in the deserts of Karbala, Iraq. After a ten-day siege in which for a number of days they were refused water, the men were all martyred in a fierce bloody battle on the tenth day. Among the deaths included youths as young as 14 who fought and died, and infants as young as six-months old who were simply slaughtered by the enemy.

After the bodies littered the sand of Karbala, the opposing army of Yazid attacked the camp of women and children. They ravaged the camp, slaughtered some children and the viels of the women were taken. The women and children along with the sole male survivor, Imam Sajjad (as), were taken in chains across the desert sand. Zainab (sa), who was the brother of Imam Hussain and grandaughter of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (saw), openly spoke out against the oppressions and injustice against the family of the Holy Prophet and to Imam Hussain. The Holy Prophet Mohammed (saw) used to say: "Hussain is from me and I am from Hussain". Imam Hussain's oppressions were the Holy Prophet's oppressions, and Imam Hussain's tribulations were the Holy Prophet's tribulations.

Surely we are God's, and to him we shall surely return

لاَّ يُحِبُّ اللّهُ الْجَهْرَ بِالسُّوَءِ مِنَ الْقَوْلِ إِلاَّ مَن ظُلِمَ وَكَانَ اللّهُ سَمِيعًا عَلِيمًا
Allah loveth not that evil should be noised abroad in public speech, except where injustice hath been done; for Allah is He who heareth and knoweth all things.
(Surat 4, Ayaat 148)

وَمَا بِكُم مِّن نِّعْمَةٍ فَمِنَ اللّهِ ثُمَّ إِذَا مَسَّكُمُ الضُّرُّ فَإِلَيْهِ تَجْأَرُونَ
And ye have no good thing but is from Allah: and moreover, when ye are touched by distress, unto Him ye cry with groans;
(Surat 16, Ayaat 53)

قُل لَّا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلَّا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَى
Say: I do not ask of you any reward for it but love for my near relatives;
(Surat 42, Ayaat 23)

ذَلِكَ وَمَن يُعَظِّمْ شَعَائِرَ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّهَا مِن تَقْوَى الْقُلُوبِ
That (shall be so); and whoever respects the signs of Allah, this surely is (the outcome) of the piety of hearts.
(Surat 22, Ayaat 32)

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا مُوسَى بِآيَاتِنَا أَنْ أَخْرِجْ قَوْمَكَ مِنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ وَذَكِّرْهُمْ بِأَيَّامِ اللّهِ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِّكُلِّ صَبَّارٍ شَكُورٍ
We sent Moses with Our signs (and the command). "Bring out thy people from the depths of darkness into light, and teach them to remember the Days of Allah." Verily in this there are Signs for such as are firmly patient and constant,- grateful and appreciative.

(Surat 14, Ayaat 5)
