Muharram Special - Part 20 [Battle Of Karbala - Part 14]


The Yazeedis carried the blessed head of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu with them, when they left the battle of karbala. On their way, they passed a  church. The Monk at the church paid the Yazeedis ten thousand dirhams to keep the head for one night.

He washed the blessed head, kept it on his lap and made Ziyaarat of it the entire night. He saw the rays of mercy descending upon the blessed head. He cried out! " O grandson of the prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ! You are not dead. You are alive. I request that you bear witness to what I am saying, and that is, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah and Muhammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is His servant and Messenger."

When morning came, the Yazeedis reclaimed the blessed head of Imam Hussain from the monk. They also claimed the money. However when the Yazeedis opened the box of money, they found that the coins had turned into pieces of clay. On either side of the clay were verses of the Holy Quran which reminded the Yazeedis of their tyranny. All those that were responsible for the Shahaadat of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu died very bad deaths. It is said that Yazeed constantly remained drunk and dogs roamed around him. He was killed by a girl whom he tried to harm.


There are numerous narrations concerning this, but the most authentic narration is that the blessed body of the great imam is buried in karbala and his blessed head is buried in Jannatul Baqi, close to Imam Hassan and Bib Faatima Radi Allahu Anhum. May Almighty Allah bless us with true love for the Ahle Bait and may Allah Ta'ala raise us amongst the martyrs on the day of judgment. Aameen.
