If religion was within knowledge, then why heads on lances would be impaled Hoo
Eighteen thousands universes there, in presence of Hussain in death they would have excelled Hoo
If they heeded thought of our Prophet then why fire on tents would have dwelled Hoo
If they had acknowledge the oath of Prophet why would they stop water supply Hoo
Just is thy faith ‘Bahoo’ who sacrifice their head to defy Hoo
Commentary by M. A. Khan
If faith was in knowledge then why would Imam Hussain’s (may Allah be pleased with him) head be placed on lances. At the state of Qidam (pre-eternity) in the presence of Almighty Allah the spirits of eighteen thousand universes were presented with the situation of Karbala and asked for sacrifice and amongst all of the spirits only the spirit of Imam Hussain submitted their head for the sacrifice. If the solders of Yazeed the accursed tyrant would have envisaged our beloved Prophet they would not have torched the tents. If they had acknowledged the oath of obedience on the hand of Prophet they wouldn’t have stopped the water supply for the family and children of Ahl-e-Bait (beloved Prophet’s family). The faith of those courageous people who sacrificed their life for Imam Hussain is perfect faith and not of those tyrant who have perpetrated atrocity upon the noble family of beloved Prophet .
