Yawned and moved on…

When Shia are terrorized in Iraq, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Africa no one cares…it’s the best and worst kept secret in this world…Just like Paris, without the outrage: ISIS has carried out another horrific massacre in Iraq, but the media just yawned and moved on – Salonhttps://apple.news/AJ8u1RU5KPlykLIcPTUrDGg

True Love

When the wife of the Imam Ali died of her wounds, Imam Ali buried her alone and without a funeral because those were her wishes. This is what he spoke as he finished praying on her grave……………..

الامام علي عليه السلام  : عند قبر فاطمة الزهراء عليها السلام

حبيب ليس له بعد حبيــــــــــب

وما لسواه في قلبي نصيب

حبيب غاب عن عيني وجسمي

وعن قلبي حبيب لا يغيــب

roughly translated
saying of Imam Ali at the tomb of his beloved wife Fatima(a.s) after
he buried her.

A lover that no lover precedes

Nor shall another have a share my heart

A lover who is absent from my eye and form

But from my heart shall never part.

Love is so beautiful if only we learn to give without receiving. No one would be unloved if everyone loved a little more…………

History Lesson- Muharamm

Many people don’t know about the Islamic Calender, or don’t want to know.

Now I’m not going to  talk  about it or discussing it right now because it means I have to think hard and well I’m still working on that right now.

As I was saying, the Islāmic Calender is a lunar calendar every new moon means new month simple more accurate and there isn’t an Apocalypse any time soon so no worries!

What I want to talk about is the first month Muharamm. In this month Muslims are FORCED to stop bickering (even back then they were bickering all the time.) they are also not allowed to start wars which maybe is a bit to hard for them,(my opinion). In the year 680 A.D

the leader of Sham (Syria) plotted and killed the last grandson of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)

In the West everyone knows of the Spartans and the battle of  Thermopylae, and those who don’t watched the movie 300, but The Imam Hussein didn’t have 300 he had 75. They were defeated in a single afternoon but they killed around 10,000 of the 30,000 that were presumed there.

The Spartans had water,The Imam Hussein didn’t. When People speak of Spartans they use words like loyalty, courage, patriotic,these are the same words we use for our Imams they fought alongside their followers they didn’t sit on the sidelines.We keep their memories alive and we have a love for them that most people don’t understand even other sects of Islam.

I know I haven’t done this subject justice but to put it in simpler terms every year we vote and we vote for Him. Here is a link to His wiki page.

Imagethis is a picture of the Imam Hussein’s  Mausoleum the inside door ways and dome are gold, (the former dictator didn’t get a chance to “borrow” these yet.)

Please excuse my bad penmanship, I’m just beginning to get my ideas straight and I appreciate your patience.

(My first serious subject yeahhhh dude I’m gettin’  all professional and mature!!!  :))
