Imam Hussain:

O desirous of worldly delights! U must know all these delights are mortal. Imam Hussain, son of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib, was a well-known Imam (Leader) of Islam. He was a grandson of Prophet Muhammad. Hussein’s mother was Lady Fatima, daughter of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be on them all.)

Hussein had immense love for goodness, truth and honesty. He was a man of boundless bravery. So, He proved his bravery and love of Allah at Karbala. Because In Karbala he made the highest sacrifice. His sacrifice for the sake of Islam at Karbala is legendary.

Nature of Imam Hussain:

Imam Hussein was also very well recognized for his sympathy, charity and love for the poor. He lived in Madina. Madina is a city in Hijaz (now in Saudi Arabia). So, One day riding a horse, he went through one of the ways of Madina. On one side of the path some beggars had gathered in a circle. They were eating food that they had gathered from throughout the day. The beggars saw Hussein passing. They saluted and greet him. Hussein responded happily. The beggars requested Hussein to join them and eat with them.

Hussein came down from his horse and sat with them. And He very humbly described to the beggars that he was from the family of Muhammad, the Prophet. Therefore, it was prohibited to him to take whatsoever that has been given in alms (sadqah). Had not alms been prohibited to him he would most willingly have shared their food.

As an alternative, so that they all could be seated and eat together, Imam Hussein requested all of them to his house and eat with him there. All the beggars approved. They went along with Hussein to his house and ate food with him.


  1. One should continuously act with sympathy and love for others – particularly the poor.
  2. Not to offend but always try to respect the legal wishes of others is a sign of honorable character.
