The month of Muharram and its Purpose and Our Responsibilities, Hazrat Imam Husain A.s stood alone saying “O God I have done my duty and exposed your enemies so that mankind does not remain in dark as what is the truth and evil, I have given all the sacrifices and now stand to give my life to The title for today’s debate that I have chosen is “Our responsibilities in month of Moharram.” Before describing the title I would like to explain that what Moharram-ul-haram is? and what is our responsibility in this month?
The month of Muharram and its Purpose and Our Responsibilities
Moharram-ul-haram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. The word Moharram means forbidden. Even before Islam this month was deemed to be sacred, in which all unlawful acts were forbidden prominently, where it has the history of bloodsheds, miracles, and arrivals. 10th Moharram is the day of Ashura, Adam and Hawa were born and accepted repentance on this day, the Almighty created the earth, the moon, the sun and the heaven on this day.
Fourteen hundred years ago Hazrat Imam Husain A.s sacrificed his family for the sake of Islam in this month. The message of Karbala was to be truthful not the falsehood, to have justice not to have oppression, to have sincerity not faction.
We spend too much money for charities instead if we observe the current era, there are thousands of people who do not have two times of meal to eat, who are not having shelters to live, and who are not having dresses to wear. Instead of the charities, we can give them shelters to live, we can provide them with dresses to wear, we can give them food to eat. I think it is our first responsibility.
A question arises in mind. That is the holy the month of Moharram we attend lots majalis in regards to Karbala but have the scholars provided us the awareness of responsibilities? Have the scholars stopped us from bloodsheds in the protests of Ashura?
Why we protest in Ashura
It shows that scholars are not reaching us in a proper manner. The scholars should teach us in the manner to apply those footsteps and message of Karbala in our daily routine. Instead of bloodsheds in the protest of Ashura, we can donate our blood to the poor patience those who need blood every second week. Imam Husain A.s quotes that “A person would not forget to types of faces in his life the one who helps him in need and the one who leaves him difficulties.”
So my points of view regarding the month of Moharram is that we should not bound ourselves only for the month of Moharram-ul-haram. If we want an actualized life, we must not listen to the scholars about the message of Karbala and our responsibilities. Apply that in your daily routine not for a day, a week, a month or a year apply that for your whole lifetime. The month of Muharram-ul-haram is the blessed month of the year. In these days Hazrat Ibrahim was born, Hazrat Essa was born, on these days Hazrat Younas was pulled from the belly of fish, on these days Hazrat Yaqoob returns his eyesight, on these days it was the day of rain. This month reminds us of the great sacrifice of Imam Husain A.s and his companions in Karbala.
Thus Imam Husain A.s is a role model that human beings can aspire to his spirits, lives on forever in human conscience. The way he lived and the way he died shows us the value he placed on morality and honor. He taught us the true purpose of our existence, the perfection of our morals and ethics in his own words.
The month of Muharram and its Purpose and Our Responsibilities, So He sums it up beautifully; a great saying of Mola Husain A.s is that “Death with dignity is better than the life humiliation.” For more Visit our site Techzeer.
