Despite War, Mawlid Still Celebrated In Iraq

http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=489703364225253828&q=Mawlid+In+Iraq&total=4&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=0 

In 2007, Mawlid was celebrated by Sunni Muslims on March 31st. It was celebrated by Shi’as on April 5th. In the Gregorian calendar, the standard calendar of Western countries, the date moves each year, because the Islamic calendar is lunar, while the Gregorian is solar. In Arabic, Mawlid means “birthday” and Mawlid An-Nabi is one of the formal names given to the specific day to celebrate Muhammad, or in Shi’a Islam, the family of Ali in particular.

Mawlid is the day when Sunnis and Shi’as mark the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. In fact, the 12th of Rabi’ul’Awwal, or 17th for Shi’as, is traditionally believed to be the date of Muhammad’s death. It was arbitrarily fixed as the date to celebrate his birth, in 1207, when Muzaffar ad-Din Gökburi, brother-in-law of the famous Saladin.

This year Isam Rasheed documented some of the celebrations in Adhamiya, where the Abu Hanifa Mosque is located. Because of the location of the Abu Hanifa Mosque, or Imam Adham Abu Hanifa Mosque, Sunnis from all over Baghdad, and even many provinces in Iraq used to travel to Adhamiya for the celebrations.

This year, due to insecurity and on-going sectarian violence, it has become difficult for even Sunnis in Baghdad to make it to Adhamiya. Despite all of these difficulties Iraqis such as Qusay Al-Adhamiy and Waleed Tarek would not let the celebrations occur without the proper festivities. They each helped pay for the festivities in their area of Adhamiya by donating time and money.

Impact of the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain (Alayhis Asalam)

‘Blood rained from the sky when the Shahaadah of Imaam Hussain took place’

 

It is reported that when Imam al-Hussain was killed, the sky rained down blood. (Nadra al-Azdiya, a woman who was contemporary with Imam al – Hussain (AS), is said to have reported: “When al-Hussain b. ‘Ali was killed, the sky rained down blood, so that next morning we found our wells and water jugs filled with it.” This hadith is narrated by Ibn Hajar. )

Ummul Fadhl the daughter of al-Harith said that she entered on the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and she said: “Oh! Messenger of Allah, I saw a strange dream last night. He said: And what is it? She said: It was difficult. He said: And what is it? She said: I saw, as if, a piece of your body was severed and was put in my lap! The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: You saw well – Fatima will give birth, God willing, a boy so he will be in your lap. Then Fatima gave birth to al-Hussain and he was in my lap – just as the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said. So I entered one day on the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and put him in his lap, but I noticed that the eyes of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) pouring tears! So I said: Oh! Prophet of Allah, my parents are your ransom, what is with you? He said: Gabriel (AS) came to me and informed me that my nation (ummah) will kill this son of mine.” (al-Mustadrak al-Sahih, al-Hafidh al-Hakim al-Nisapouri, v. 3, p. 176, (al-Hakim said: “This is an authentic hadith (Sahih) on the conditions of Bukhari and Muslim but they did not print it”); Dalael al-Nubouwa, al-Hafidh al-Bayhaqi under the subject of al-Hussain (AS); Cf. Ibn al-A’tham IV, (Hyderabad, 1971), p. 211-2, the author narrates this hadith using a different chain of narration).

 jalimubarik-large.jpg

Imam’Allamah Mahmud al- Alusi Rehmatullahi ‘Alaih mentions in Tafsir Ruh al Ma’ani:  


After the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) had passed away the Companions, used to go to the House of his beloved wife Hazrath Maimuna (Radi Allahu anha), to look at a mirror utilized by the beloved Prophet Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) that she had kept safely. In this mirror they did not see themselves but the image of the beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam).

The mirror had refused to let go of the image of the beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa Mujtaba (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam).

  Ruh al-Ma’ani: The full name of this tafseer is ‘Ruh al-Ma’ani fi Tafseer al-Quran al-‘Azim wa al-Sab al-Mathani’ and it was written by ‘Allamah Mahmud al-Alusi Rehmatullahi ‘Alaih, the famous scholar of the last Period of Baghdad, and comprises of thirty volumes.
