President Dr Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif have said that the supreme sacrifice of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) was a beacon of light for the Muslims and it carried the message that against the oppression and tyranny one should be the flag-bearer of truth and righteousness, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In a message on the occasion of Youm-e-Ashur, the president said in Islamic history, Muharram-ul-Haram was a month of respect, dignity and blessings. During this month, the most important events of Islamic history occurred, he added.

He said the Youm-e-Ashur or the 10th of Muharram-ul-Haram was of special importance and blessings for the Muslim Ummah.

On this day, Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) refused to show allegiance to an oppressive ruler and embraced martyrdom along with his family members and other loyal companions for Islam and for truth and righteousness, he noted.

The President said the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)) sacrificed his life but did not bow his head before the forces of evil.

On this day, Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA), his family and loyal companions set a great example of bravery, courage and sacrifice, and gave a new life to Islam with their blood, he observed.

He said every Muslim was tearful about this tragic incident and the grave cruelty against the family of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

People should raise their voice in protest against the forces who were unleashing oppression and disobeying the orders of Allah, he stressed.

“We should always be ready for struggle with patience, steadfastness, and courage, at the individual and collective level for victory and success of virtue.”

He said: “When we will follow the religion of Allah, the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and life of Imam Hussain (RA) then certainly Allah Almighty will help us and we will succeed in this life and the hereafter.”

“We should make a pledge that we will make our utmost effort to follow the life of Imam Hussain (RA) and imbued with a sense of sacrifice to serve people in the country, especially those who are facing difficulties due to floods.”

“I pray to Allah Almighty to make my country prosperous and developed and save us from all kinds of tragedies.”

Shehbaz Sharif’s message

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif tweeted Tuesday, “The supreme sacrifice rendered by Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his family drew a distinct line between the forces of truth and falsehood, and the oppressor and the oppressed. The great Imam established a moral principle that has animated the struggles for right to self-determination,” reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

He added, “Imam Hussain (RA) represents a voice of the voiceless and is an advocate of unity, brotherhood, morality and truth. His message of resistance and defiance will continue to inspire humanity to aspire for moralistic world order that is based on universal principles of equality and freedom.”

He further stated, “As humanity navigates multiple challenges and seeks to break the logjam it finds itself in, it must seek guidance from exemplary character of Imam Hussain (RA) and his companions. The virtues of patience, loyalty, unity and tolerance can defeat the forces of division, chaos and anarchy.”
