The leader of the Prophets, Sayyiduna Muhammad صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said:
اَلْحَسَنُ وَالْحُسَيْنُ سَيِّدَا شَبَابِ اَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ, meaning, Hasan and Husayn are the leaders of the youth of Paradise. (Tirmizi, vol. 5, p. 426, Hadees 3793)
Dear children! You ought to know that nobody will be old in Paradise, rather, all elderly people and children will be 30 years of age in Paradise. (Tirmizi, vol. 4, p. 254, Hadees 2571) Sayyiduna Hasan and Husayn رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُما are the leaders of those people of Paradise who died at a young age. Otherwise, everyone will be young in Paradise. (Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 8, p. 475, summarised)
Dear children! The month of Muharram-ul-Haraam has a close connection with Imam Husayn رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُ, as it was on the 10th of this month that he رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُ, along with his companions, was martyred, after experiencing several days of intense hunger and thirst. This was because he رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُ refused to pledge allegiance to the oppressive and sinful leader, Yazeed.
Dear children! From the martyrdom of Imam Husayn رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُ, we learn that in order to achieve great success we must also give a great sacrifice. We also learn that we must face the problems and difficulties we encounter on the path of success with determination and never waver in our resolve.
May Allah Almighty give us the ability to follow in the footsteps of Imam Hasan and Imam Husayn رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ عَـنْهُما.
اٰمِیْن بِجَاہِ النَّبِیِّ الْاَمِیْن صلَّی اللہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم
