Golden Sayings of Imam Hussain (AS) Part-6

57 - O' the son of Adam! Remember the death of your fathers and 
your children ,where they were , and to where they went. 
I can foresee that you , too ,will join them very soon 
and provide a lesson for others. 

(Ershadol Kuloob , Vol. 1 , P. 29)

58 - We are the victorious party of God , we are the household of 
the Messenger of God and the relatives of him. We are the dignified 
and chaste family of the prophet , we are one of the two great weights 
of which the prophet of God has appointed us as the second to 
the book of God ( which is the first of the two weights ).
The book in which there are explanations for everything. 
There is no wrong init. The Holy Koran for which we have been trusted 
to interpret. We will never be helpless in its interpretation. 
In our interpretation , we follow the facts of the Holly Quran. 
O' people do obey us, because obeying us is compulsory for you, 
and is tantamount to obeying God and his Messenger. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 205)

59 - A person asked Imam Hussain (as): 
" O' the son of the messenger of God, 
how can we know God Almighty? " Imam replied : 
" By knowing and obeying" the Imam of your time. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 5 , P. 312)

60 - Divine laws and Islamic principles must be carried out 
only by us Imams , the divine scholars , who have thorough 
knowledge of the permitted and forbidden things by God. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 97 , P. 80)

61 - O' God! , you know my revolt against the rule of 
Bani Omayah did not stem from any greed for power, or for 
taking revenge. I stood against the tyrant of my time 
to reveal the genuine image of your divine religion , and to 
make social reforms in order to save the oppressed and 
pave the way for them to act according to your rules. And
 you people ! If you don't support us and treat us fairly , tyrants 
and oppressors will dominate you to blow out divine illumination. 
Surely God Almighty is our strong supporter , upon whom we rely , 
from whom we seek help , and towards whom is our return. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 97 , P. 80)

62 - Thanks to God , whatever God wills will happen , there is 
no power except stemming from Allah ( God ). Death has been written on 
the son of Adam( human being ) in such a suitable way like 
the elegance of a necklace around the neck of a young girl. 
I am so eager to meet my ancestors like the enthusiasm of Jacob 
to see Joseph. The divine fate has destined for me a place of killing 
to which I have to go. As if ( I can see ) my body parts and members 
are torn by the hungry wolves of a district between Nawawis
 and Karbala to quench there thirst and hanger by killing me. 
There is no escape from such a divine fate. We , 
the household of the Prophet , are subservient to whatever 
God has destined us. We will be patient on this calamity 
which he has planned for us. Of course his Almighty will give us 
the reward of the patients. We are ( as ) the body parts of the Prophet 
and his body parts will not separate from him. We will be 
surrounding the Prophet in the Paradise. By our departure from 
this world the Prophet will be delighted. The promises that have 
been given to us will be fulfilled. Now , whoever among us is 
ready for martyrdom and has prepared himself for death and 
is fond of meeting God , will move with us. We will set out
 tomorrow ; God willing. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 366)

63 - O' people do know that this world is a mortal/house. 

(Nasikh At'tareekh , Vol. 6 , Part. 2 , P. 243)

64 - I do not know companions more loyal and better than my 
companions ,neither do I know a household more honourable 
and passionate than my household. May the Almighty rewards 
you for the favors you have done me. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 392)

65 - The Almighty God elevates His worshippers for their patience in 
enduring difficulties. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 45 , P. 90)

66 - Know that Surely the world's sweetness and bitterness are all 
( nothing but )dreams. Awareness is solely in the hereafter. 
The winner is the one who wins the other world and
 the wretched is the one who becomes wretched in it ( the hereafter ). 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 45 , P. 91)

67 - Praise to God who created the world and made it a mortal, 
unstable and uncertain house the residents of which keep 
changing and under going ups and downs , wretched and miserable 
are those who are deceived by the fleeting and transient pleasures 
and attractions of this world. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 45 , P. 5)

68 - No way ! By God I will never surrender to them like 
a humiliated person and never pledge allegiance to them like slaves.
" I seek refuge to my God from you stoning me to death ". 
" I seek refuge to my God and your God from any arrogant 
who does not believe in the day of Resurrection ". 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 45 , P. 7)

69 - Be patient O ' the son of the nobles. Death is only a bridge 
which takes you from misery and loss to the vast Paradise 
and the eternal graces. Then , is there anyone among you 
who dislikes to be transferred from a prison to a palace? 
For your enemies death is the opposite , it is like being transferred 
from a palace to a prison to be tortured. As my father quoted 
the Prophet assaying : " Surely, this world is a prison for the believer 
and a Paradise for the infidel." Death is a bridge to take some 
to their Paradise and some to their hell. I have never told lies 
and never was told lies. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 297)
