Superiority and excellence of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) Glad tidings of his birth

Superiority and excellence of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) Glad tidings of his birth

 

The paternal aunt of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) saw a dream and reported it to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave a happy interpretation of the dream and gave glad tidings of the birth of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him), as given in Imam Baihaqi's Dalaail Un Nabuwwa.

 

Translation:  Hadhrat Umme Fadhl bint Haris (May Allah be well pleased with her) narrates that she went to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and said: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)!  This night I saw a horrifying dream.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) asked her: What dream did you see?  She said: I saw as if a part of your body has been cut and placed in my lap.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: You saw a good dream.  If Allah wills, Fatima (May Allah be well pleased with her) will have a son and he will be placed in your lap.

 

It happened as the Prophet had said.  Hadhrat Fatima (May Allah be well pleased with her) was blessed with Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) and he was placed in my lap, as the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had said.

 

Then one day, I went to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and placed Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) before Him.  What I saw! That the Holy Prophet's (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) eyes were full of tears.  Upon seeing this, I asked: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), May my mother and father be sacrificed for your sake, what is the reason of your crying?  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Jibreel came to me and said that very soon, some people from my Ummah will martyr this son of mine.  I asked: O Prophet, will they martyr this prince?  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Yes and Jibreel gave me the red sand of that place.  (Dalaail Un Nubuwwah, Hadith No: 2805; Mishkaat Ul Masabeeh, Vol. 2, Pg No. 572; Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol. 5, Pg No. 327/328)

 

In the Hadith of Ummul Fadhl (May Allah be well pleased with him), there are glad tidings of the birth of Imam Hussain and also the Prophetic knowledge of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is revealed.

 

By the grant of Allah, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) knows what is inside the mothers' wombs.  What has been mentioned in the last verse of Surah Luqman – 34:

 

This is intrinsic knowledge (‘Ilm Dhati), which is the attribute of Almighty Allah alone.  Therefore by the grant of Allah, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) not only gave glad tidings of birth, but also specified the gender and said:

 

A boy will be born and also said that he will be placed in the lap of Hadhrat Umme Fadhl (May Allah be well pleased with her).

 

His birth:

 

He was born on the 5th of Sha’aban, in Madina.  (Ma’arifatis Sahabah Li Abi Nu‘aim, Babil Ha)

 

His Kuniyah is Abu Abdullah.

 

He is also referred to as Raihan e Rasool (Lit. The flower of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam))

 

Syed Shabab Ahle jannah (Lit. The leader of the young men of Heaven)

Ar Rashid (Lit. The Guided One)

At Tayyib (lit. The Pure)

Az Zaki (Lit.  The Intelligent)

His Progeny:  He had 9 children-6 sons and 3 daughters.

2.       Hadhrat Ali Ausat (Imam Zainul Abideen)

3.       Hadhrat Ali Asghar
