MARTYRDOM SIGNIFIES INCAPACITY & THE DEPLORABLE STATE OF HUMANITY !Sad that Hussain, Prophet Muhammad's incestuously born grandson - the Prophet's daughter Fatima had married the Prophet's first cousin, Ali - died an untimely and cruel death with his family and followers at the hands of Yazid at the Battle of Karbala.However, what is surprising is that if the Prophet had, according to a Hadith, foreseen his dear grandson's death then couldn't he have prevented it using his supernatural powers?It's so easy to die for a cause but it's really difficult to emerge unscathed from difficulties (including war) and to triumph against all odds and march to greater heights while pulling struggling humanity along.This outstanding feat of emerging victorious from any and all difficulties calls for superior genetic and psychological capacities that border on the superhuman.Martyrdom is not to be glorified.A martyr may be brave and steadfast where sticking to his principles are concerned but his vanquishment and death at the hands of his opponents indicate inferior qualities.Martyrdom is a sign of incapacity and signifies that the person defeated and killed lacked superior mental, vital, physical and survival skills or capacities.Those who emerge victorious and alive from every adversity should be praised and emulated and are the true heroes and path-blazers.Besides, where violence is concerned, when Prophets and Sages pick up weapons or encourage killings and wars, indulge in barbaric blood rituals like animal and human sacrifices and resort to cursing their opponents for failing to submit then it places these Prophets among the ranks of the commoners who employ the same crude techniques.If someone claims to be imbued with the Power of God then not only should he have perfect Knowledge of nature, supernature and being but equally important is that he should also have sufficient Paranormal Power to thwart, subdue or dissolve the subtle and gross unbalanced energies or forces of evil (that invariably operate through human beings of ill-will) without lifting a finger or saying a harsh word . This would constitute the true and sure sign of a mighty Man of God.Cursing, abusing, ranting, threatening, maiming and murdering one's opponents can be executed by anyone.All our Prophets have come into the world teaching escapism from earthly cares and troubles by claiming that, by following their teachings and indulging in prescribed rituals, one can, in the afterlife, enjoy for all eternity a variety of sensual pleasures in some nebulous heaven. Furthermore, the Prophets have preached trite morality that's as old as thinking humanity aside from their usual favorites which is inciting wars, creating sectarianism, introducing myths and abusing those who refuse to submit.Seeing the sordid mess everywhere in the world and its exponential growth that's continuing without dilution till the present, it never fails to amaze and shock me that none of the Prophets had the superior Knowledge and Power to dissolve the adverse conditions affecting humanity and none could regenerate the earth matter by infusing it with a higher Consciousness and Force that would nullify or better still unify all the odds or contradictions that would in the process give rise to a higher harmony based on light, power, plasticity and peace so as to do away with matter's unplasticity, wear, and tear, decomposition, susceptibility to disequilibrium and resistance to illumined evolutionary forces and as a result wars, hatred, bigotry, suffering, vices, serious personality flaws, eugenic distortions, diseases, death, injustice and crime continue unabated and are in fact spreading with rapidity.Hilariously, the Prophets knew very little or nothing about the deeper natural laws governing the universe and being - why they didn't even know that the earth is oblate-spheroid in shape nor were they aware of the centrifugal and corolios forces that are responsible for rearranging matter in this peculiar shape. As for other natural laws and phenomena related to the states of matter, sub-atomic particles, singularity, gravitation, nature of time, genetics and modes of consciousness and how these connect with matter, the Prophets were ill-informed or totally in the dark.Curiously, many Prophets taught absurdities like creation from nothing, flat or egg-shaped earth, stars used as missiles to drive away devils and the like!Thank you,A K Isaacs

Received: Thursday, 22 November, 2012, 11:23 PMA tribute to Hazrat Imam Husain(A.S.)
Oh ! the son of Prophet, the saviour of men,
The sultry noon of the horrid summer,
When long back this day, your pious blood,
Fell to the soil in a ruthless way,
Haunts me like a frightening dream.
The arrow, so cruel that pierced the throat,
Of a thirsty babe who could not shriek,
The devilish hands that severed the head,
From your body, the holiest then,
Make me tearful night and day.
One could foresee through your pains,
We would learn a moral so high,
In chain would spring the countless heads,
To follow your spirit in the righteous cause,
Alas! Craven we are , could not do.
We lament your sorrow and cry so hoarse,
You might think, a creed has come,
To hold your banner in the benighted world,
To trim the evils as you did,
Alas! We are a smirch on your name.
Our talks are bold, our hearts are weak,
Our tongues are sharp, our minds are meek,
Our hands and legs are shivery all,
Make us man and give us a call,
Our hopes are shimmering in your grave.
Pangs of conscience ask me oft,
Why the flame of virtue is soft?
Why the sun of evil has its reign,?
Why our blood is cold when vice is hot.?
Are we on the brink of death,?
Summon the courage, you all the men !
Tread on the path of martyrs, the great,
Else, the Last Day will see your awful fate,
Your abode will be the dreaded Hell,
Dr. Mustafa Kamal Sherwani,LL.D.
