Quotes About Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A)

“The world is unable to present an example finer and brighter than the personality of Imam Husain (A.S.). He was the embodiment of love, valor, and personification of sacrifice and devotion. Every Muslim, in particular, must learn a lesson from his life and should seek guidance from him.”
Quid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah

“Imam Hussein uprooted despotism forever, till the day of Resurrection. He watered the dry gardens of freedom with a surging wave of his blood, and indeed he awakened the sleeping Muslim nation. If Imam Hussein (a.s) had aimed at acquiring the worldly empire, he would not have traveled the way he did. Hussein weltered in blood and dust for the sake of truth. Verily, therefore he becomes the foundation of Muslim creed. ‘La Ilaha Illallah’, meaning there is no deity but Allah (God).”
Allama Iqbal (Famous Poet)

“I learnt from Hussain how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”
“My faith is that the progress of Islam does not depend on the use of sword by its believers, but the result of the supreme sacrifice of Hussain.”
“If India wants to be a successful country, it must follow in the footsteps of Imam Hussain(R.A).
“If I had an army like the 72 soldiers of Hussain, I would have won freedom for India in 24 hours.”
Mahatma Gandhi: (Father of the Indian Nation)

“In a distant age and climate the tragic scene of the death of Hussain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.”
[The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, London, 1911, volume 5, pp391-2]
Edward Gibbon (English historian and member of parliament)

“Hussain and his companions faced eight kinds of enemies. On the four sides the army of Yezid was their enemy which was ceaselessly raining arrows; the fifth foe was the sun of Arabia that was scorching the bodies; the sixth foe was the desert of Karbala the sands of which were scorching like a heated furnace; the seventh and eighth foes were the overpowering hunger and the unbearable thirst. Thus on those who fought with thousands of infidels in such conditions has ended bravado; on such a people no gallant (hero) can ever have pre-eminence.”
James Corne (Author of History of China)

“In order to keep alive justice and truth, instead of an army or weapons, success can be achieved by sacrificing lives, exactly what Imam Hussain did.”
“Imam Hussain is the leader of humanity.”
“Imam Hussain (R.A) will warm the coldest heart.”
Rabindranath Tagore (Indian Nobel Prize in Literature 1913)

“The sacrifice of Imam Hussain is not limited to one country, or nation, but it is the hereditary state of the brotherhood of all mankind.”
Dr. Rajendra Prasad (1st President of India)

“The best lesson which we get fromthe tragedy of Cerebella is that Husain and his companions were rigid believers in God. They illustrated that the numerical superiority does not count when it comes to the truth and the falsehood. The victory of Husain, despite his minority, marvels me!”
Thomas Carlyle (Scottish historian and essayist)

“Qatl-e-Hussain asl main marg-e-Yazid hai,
Islam zindaa hota hai har Karbala ke baad”
“In the murder of Hussain, lies the death of Yazid, for Islam resurrects after every Karbala”
Maulana Mohammad Ali Jauhar

“This is a catastrophe whereof I care not to speak at length, deeming it alike too grievous and too horrible. For verily, it was a catastrophe than that which naught more shameful has happened in Islam…There happened therein such a foul slaughter as to cause man’s flesh to creep with horror. And again I have dispersed with my long description because of it’s notoriety, for it is the most lamented of catastrophes.”
Al Fakhri (Famous Arab Historian)

Antoine Bara (Lebanese writer)
“No battle in themodern and past history of mankind has earned more sympathy and admiration as well as provided more lessons than the martyrdomof Husayn in the battle of Karbala.”

(Husayn in Christian Ideology)

Josh Malihabadi (Shaayar-e-Inqilaab or The Revolutionary Poet)
“Let humanity awakens and every tribe will claim Hussain as their own.

Washington Irwing (American author, essayist, biographer and historian)
“It was possible for Hussein to save his life by submitting himself to the will of Yazid. But his responsibility as a reformer did not allow him to accept Yazid’s Caliphate. He therefore prepared to embrace all sorts discomfort and inconvenience in order to deliver Islam from the hands of the Omayyads. Under the blazing sun, on the parched land and against the stiffing heat of Arabia, stood the immortal Hussein.”

Sir William Muir (Scottish orientalist)
“The tragedy of Karbala decided not only the fate of the Caliphate, but also of Mohammadan kingdoms long after the Caliphate had waned and is appeared.” (Annals of the Early Caliphate, London, 1883, p.441-442)

Charles Dickens (English novelist)
“If Husain had fought to quench his worldly desires…then I do not understand why his sister, wife, and children accompanied him. It stands to reason therefore, that he sacrificed purely for Islam.”

Sarojini Naidu (Great India Poetess titled Nightingale of India)
“I congratulate Muslims that from among them, Hussain, a great human being was born, who is reverted and honored totally by all communities.”

Swami Shankaracharya (Hindu Religious Priest)

“It is Hussain’s sacrifice that has kept Islam alive or else in this world there would be no one left to take Islam’s name.”

Dr. Rajendra Prasad (1st President of India)

“The sacrifice of Imam Hussain is not limited to one country, or nation, but it is the hereditary state of the brotherhood of all mankind.”

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru (1st Prime Minister of India)
“There is a universal appeal in his martyrdom. Hazrat Imam Hussein (a.s) sacrificed his all, but he refused to submit to a tyrannical government. He never gave any weight to the fact that his material force was far less in comparison with that of an enemy; the power of faith to his greatest force, which regards all material force as nothing. This sacrifice is a beacon light of guidance for every community and every nation”

“Imam Hussain’s sacrifice is for all groups and communities, an example of the path of righteousness.”
