JNN 15 Dec 2010 : During the ongoing Ashura mourning gathering at Baqiyyatullah Husainiyyah on Sunday, the Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky explained further the various events, after the demise of the Prophet, which led to Ashura tragedy.
He explained that the Ummayads who imposed themselves on the Ummah, propagated the hate of Imam Ali and Ahlul bayt(AS) in every corner. Their aim which they want to achieve through the campaign of calumny and hatred, championed by Ma’awiyyah, against Imam Ali and the members of Ahlul bayt was to attain to Leadership position. Thus, he did all he could to obliterate the name of Ahlul Bayt(AS) from the minds of Muslims. In fact, invoking curse on Imam Ali became a norm, and this continued for many years, even after the death of Mu’awiyyah (L.A).
Sheikh Zakzaky pointed that it reached the extent that Imam Ali, who killed 70 kuffars in battle of badr, was not even known as Muslim. People didn’t even know that he was among those who attended badr, in fact he is the king of Badr. Muslims had respect for ahlul badr ( those companions who attended battle of badr), but unfortunately, they didn’t know that Ali was the among them. Worse than that was the invocation of curse on Imam Ali and Ahlul bayt(AS), which continued for many years, even in Friday sermons- the legacy of Mu’awiyyah (L.A).
The Sheikh further narrated that earlier on, Mu’awiyah (L.A) made the Leadership to be seen as tribal affairs-an issue between Quraishi tribes only excluding any non-Arabs(mawaliy). so, by this, he made sure all Quraishi tribes gathered against Banu Hashim, and with this, he revived the Jahiliyyah enmity. He tribalised religion for the interest of Ummayads which was attaining to the position of Leadership.
Before the coming of Islam internal wars amongst Quraishi tribes was common, mostly due to competitions of superiority amongst clans and also enmity, thus they formed ties among clans against others.
Sheikh Zakzaky further expressed that reviving this enmity was what Mu’awiiayh (L.A) did in which he instigated all Quraysh tribes against Banu Hashim. He even denied mawali (non-quraysh), any ranks or position for he knew that they will support Banu Hasim.
Mu’awiyyah’s hatrage of Imam was too obvious as when performing prayers, he didn’t use to start with Basmala because Imam Ali always recited Basmala openly during prayers; not only that, Muáwiyah (L.A) made many fabrications and innovations.
The Leader further stressed that Banu Umayyads tribalised religion and made all effort to extinguish Islam altogether. They were after leadership ever since from the beginning. They even said that Islam was established with blood of their forefathers and they must, therefore, take vengeance.
Mourning was performed after the sunset prayers led by Sheikh Zakzaky. later the leader closed the Sunday programme with a dua.
