Muharram gives universal message of peace, harmony: Dr Farooq Abdullah
Srinaga : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President and Member of Parliament from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Thursday said that the holy month of Muharram which also marks the first month of Islamic calendar gives the universal message of peace, harmony, perseverance and piety to humankind
In a statement issued here, he said that the entire humankind will continue to benefit from the supreme sacrifice of Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) for all the times to come.
Party President in his message at the very onset of Muharram Ul Haram said: “the month is of great historical and idealistic importance as it was during this month that the grand-son of Prophet of Islam, Hazrat Imam Husain (AS) sacrificed his life, along with his family members and associates for the sake of cardinal principles laid down by Holy messenger of Islam (SAW).”
“The great Imam eternalized the message of Holy messenger of Islam (SAW) by choosing to sacrifice his own life and his family’s as well. The revered household of holy messenger of Islam (saw), the Ahlu Baiyat suffered a lot but didn’t yield to evil forces, nor did they complain. During the days of Muharram, Imam Aali Makam (AS) and his household exhibited an attitude of patience, submission to Almighty Allah. Imam Husain elevated the stature of humanity and demarcated good from evil. His struggle is emblematic of the power of truth and piousness, the virtues which Imam Husain (AS) himself personified. He also immortalized the fact that those who strive and sacrifice in the way for the sake of truth, and justice never die. I impress upon the administration to ensure all facilities and basic civic amenities to devotees during the entire month especially on the day of Youm-e-Ashura,” he said.
