کچھ خبر  بھی ہے محبانِ حسین دور  بیں

موت ہے شبیریت کے دایئرے میں انگبیں

اِ بتاع مرشدِ  حق پرور و عہد  آفر یں

کارو بارِ  مرگ ہے باز یچہِ طفلاں نہیں

زہر سے لبریز ہے جامِ حسین ابنِ علی

جان دیناہو  تو لو نامِ حسین ابنِ علی

حلق سے تیغوں کا منہ موڑو تولو نامِ حسین

برگ سے فو لاد کو توڑو تو لو نامِ حسین

٨٩

خانہ بربادی پہ اِتراوٗ تو لو  نامِ حسین

بیکسی  پر  ناز  فرماو  تو لو نامِ حسین

چاند سے  ٹکڑوں کو گہناو تو لو نامِ حسین

رن میں اک بے شیر کولاوٗ  تولو نامِ حسین

بیکسی کی موت نعمت ہو تو لو نامِ حسین

دھوپ میں سونے کی ہمت ہو تو لو نامِ حسین

٩٠

عزتِ دستور   پر  جو سر کٹاسکتانہیں

جو خوداپنے ہی چراغوں کو بجھا سکتا نہیں

تان کر سینے  کو جو میداں میں آ سکتا نہیں

موت کو جو اپنے کاندھے پر اُٹھا سکتا نہیں

ہاں خود اپنے خوں میں کشتی جو کھے سکتا نہیں

وہ حسین ابنِ علی کا نام لے سکتا  نہیں

Are you aware O farsighted lovers of Husain, that death in the followership of Husain is sweet like honey. Acceptance of the leadership (bai’at) of Husain is the business of death, not child’s play. The cup of Husain is brimming with bitter poison (not easy). Take the name of Husain only if you are willing to die.

1. fear 2. kingship, power 3. heated conflict 4. sword 5. leaf, petal 6. steel 7. call the name of Husain (declare allegiance)
If you can defy the power of the ruler, only then acclaim Husain. If you are not afraid of heated conflict, only then acclaim Husain. If you can quench the thirst of your enemies, only then acclaim Husain (Early in the battle of Karbala, Husain’s party camped at a location controlling access to the river and water. When an advance party of Yazid’s army arrived thirsty and tired, Husain offered them water). If you can overcome the fear of death, only then acclaim Husain. If you can turn swords back with your throat, only then acclaim Husain. If you can break the power of steel with a petal, then acclaim Husain

1. self 2. door 3. thirst 4. thunder and lightning 5. weigh, compare 6. love (your enemy 7. sword 8. multiple meanings here it means the order 9. destroy 10. to turn around
Karbala story includes how Husain, to avoid conflict and keep trying for some compromise, moved his encampment from a dominant location to a less secure one where they were vulnerable to loss of access to water – thus opening the door to thirst. If you can open the door to suffering by thirst for yourself, if you can compare your courage with thunder and lightning, if you can show love/concern for your enemies, if you speak the truth even under the blade of sword, if you can destroy the system of oppression, if you can turn back storms with just a lamp, only then can you acclaim Husain.

If you can move forward towards drawn swords, if you can face fire and still smile, if you can bear all possible difficulties, if you can test/examine yourself (for righteousness) first, if you fully assess your own courage and proceed, if you examine your own virtue, only then can you acclaim Husain.

1. destruction of family 2. be proud of 3. helplessness 4. be proud of 5. loved ones 6. eclipsed 7. war 8. infant (breastfeeding) whose mother can no longer nurse him 9. blessing
If you can proudly sacrifice even your family for Truth, if you can stand firm even when friendless, if you are prepared to lose your loved ones, if you have the courage to bring an infant out in the field of war, if you can consider death to be a blessing, if you can sleep peacefully in burning sun, only then can you acclaim Husain. “dhoop meN sone ki himmat”, refers to another Karbla story – Husain’s young daughter, reputedly oten slept on his bosom. She wanted to do this before he went for his final encounter, and death. It is said that he lay down on the burning sand for her.

1. respect for tradition 2. one’s own loved ones
One who cannot sacrifice his life to save the honor of traditions, one who cannot sacrifice one’s own loved ones, one who cannot come out bravely to stand for truth and fight, one who cannot carry Death on his shoulders, one who cannot row his boat in the river of his own blood, he cannot claim to be a follower of Husain.
