Sayyid speaks further on calamities that visit Imam Killers.

On Sunday the 22nd of Muharram, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria Sayyid Ibraheem Zakzaky spoke more on calamities  Imam Husain(AS)’s  killers.

He expressed that one of them is reported to have been burnt by fire. As he took refuge with some people he joined their discussion about calamities that befell killers of Imam Husain(AS). The man, being among the killers, said nothing happened to him and he took part in the killing. Not long after the discussion, the man attempted to correct the lantern. As he touched the lantern, the fire from it caught him. He screamed for help in vain. So, he jumped into River Furat. Each time he raised his head above the water the fire kept burning him. He died eventually.


Sayyid Zakzaky further noted that all who took part in the killing were visited by calamities in one form or another. Not only that, those who committed the atrocities for love of power lost the power in the end.  The Umayyads lost power eventually.

Abdurrahman Al-Azali (LA) , who shoot the Imam with arrow, died in thirsty. His thirsty could not be quenched with water. He kept taking water all in vain. One of them died blind without legs and hands. He cut the two arms of the Imam when he wanted to take away Imam beautiful ‘belt’ and for this Sayyidah Fatimah prayed against him.

Yazid never enjoyed life afterwards. His appearance and skin colour changed. And all those who followed yazid who either became blind, dump or visited by one form of calamity.

On the day Imam Husain (AS) was killed some birds were observed to abscond from feeding on that day. The sky turned red for Husain as a sign of weeping (AS).  A camel meet turned bitter after it was cooked, thus, the killers of Imam could not eat the meat. These and many other signs were observed.

Sayyid Zakzaky expressed that there is no Museeba (calamity) on earth like the killing of Imam Husain (AS) and his 17 family members. Weeping on Imam Husain (AS) is necessary and all other weeping people do is makruh(not recommended).

After the lecture matam was performed by Ziyara of Imam Husain(AS).
