Significance of the Months of Muharram & Safar in Islam

 

�O people! We have been bestowed six qualities and seven merits (by Allah). Knowledge, forbearance, munificence, eloquence, valor and friendship in the hearts of the believers are present in us. While our merits are that the Prophet in Authority is from amongst us; the Truthful (Imam Ali) is from amongst us; the Flyer (Ja'far at Tayyar) is from amongst us; the Lion of Allah, and that of His Prophet, is from amongst us; while also the two Sibtain of this nation are from amongst us. Those who know me, know me, while those who do not know me, I reveal my pedigree and ancestry for them until they recognize me.

O people! I am the son of Makkah and of Mina! I am the son of Zamzam and Safa! I am the son of the one who lifted the Black Stone (Hajar al Aswad) by the side of his quilt. I am the son of the best one who adorned the trousers and cloak. I am the son of the best ones who circumambulated (the Ka'bah) and performed the Sa'ee. I am the son of the best ones who performed the Hajj and pronounced the Talbiyah. I am the son of the one who was taken up to the Masjid al Aqsa at night (during Ascension, Me'raj). I am the son of the one who was taken up to the Sidrat al Muntaha. I am the son of the one 'who drew nigh and became pending (in between the creation and the Creator)' (referring to the Night of Ascension when the Prophet (S) drew near to Allah). I am the son of the one 'who was (nigh) the measure between the two bows (facing each other) or higher still' (again referred to the Night of Me'raj). I am the son of the one 'who was bestowed revelation by the Almighty, what He did reveal' (Again referring to the night of Me'raj. For all the above verses refer Surah an-Najm, surah no. 53). I am the son of Husayn (a.s.), the one killed at Karbala! I am the son of Ali, the Approved One (a.s.)! I am the son of Muhammad, the Chosen One (S)! I am the son of Fatemah az Zahra (a.s.)! I am the son of Sidrat al Muntaha! I am the son of 'the Blessed Tree'! I am the son of the one who was smeared in blood and sand. I am the son of the one who was lamented upon by the genie in the darkness of the night. I am the son of the one who was mourned upon by the birds�.
