Mockery of Imam Hussain رضي الله عنه‎ ?

The anti Ahmadi Muslims raise the allegation that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas mocked Imam Hussainra. This is totally false and has no basis to it, rather it is a clear misinterpretation of the sayings of the Messiah.


The first quotation which the non Ahmadi Muslims accuse is as follows:


“O Shia nation, do not insist that Hussain is your saviour, because I say truthfully that today there is one among you who is greater than that Hussain”


This is not called mockery. Ahmadas is simply showing the Shias that the rank they have given to Imam Hussainra to what they have is completely wrong and the Messiah is in front of them who they should accept. There is nothing wrong with the Messiah claiming to be better than Imam Hussainra. This status was given to him by Allah and by the Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw. A hadith states:


Abu Bakrra is the most superior from among the Ummah, except that a prophet is raised.”(Kanzul Ummal)


This hadith itself shows that the Messiah would be greater than Imam Hussainra and also the khulafa-e-rashideen because of his title of a Prophet. The accusation of the anti Ahmadis is on the Prophet Muhammadsaw who gave the messiah this rank as well. Furthermore, the Holy Prophet Muhammadsawwas told by Allah that he is the seal of the Prophets. He also himself stated:


حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ أَبِي عُمَرَ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنِ ابْنِ جُدْعَانَ، عَنْ أَبِي نَضْرَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ أَنَا سَيِّدُ وَلَدِ آدَمَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَلاَ فَخْرَ وَبِيَدِي لِوَاءُ الْحَمْدِ وَلاَ فَخْرَ وَمَا مِنْ نَبِيٍّ يَوْمَئِذٍ آدَمُ فَمَنْ سِوَاهُ إِلاَّ تَحْتَ لِوَائِي وَأَنَا أَوَّلُ مَنْ تَنْشَقُّ عَنْهُ الأَرْضُ وَلاَ فَخْرَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى وَفِي الْحَدِيثِ قِصَّةٌ وَهَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ ‏.‏ وَقَدْ رُوِيَ بِهَذَا الإِسْنَادِ عَنْ أَبِي نَضْرَةَ عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏.‏


Narrated Abu Sa’eed:that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “I am the master of the children of Adam on the Day of Judgement, and I am not boasting. The Banner of Praise will be in my hand, and I am not boasting. There will not be a Prophet on that day, not Adam nor anyone other than him, except that he will be under my banner. And I am the first one for whom the earth will be opened for, and I am not bragging.”(Jami’at Tirmidhi, Volume 1, Book 46, Hadith #3615)


Will the anti Ahmadis claim that the Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw now accused all of the Prophets and mocked them God forbid?


The next quote which they bring an allegation against is :


“There is a lot of difference between me and your Hussain because at every moment I get the help of God but Hussain, well just remember Karbala, you still cry until now”


It is also a fact that the amount of support of Allah which was with Ahmadaswas much greater than many others as he was a prophet of Allah. This strong statement is to raise awareness among the Shia Muslims in regards to their belief which is nearing shirk. They cry till today and harm themselves over the death of Imam Hussainra which is unacceptable. The Shias attribute a status to him that he has not claimed and go beyond limit with non Islamic actions like hurting themselves.


The third saying is:

“My journey is every time in Karbala and 100 Hussain are in my pocket”


Firstly this is a way of speech. The journey of Ahmadas was not literally in Karbala nor were there literally Imam Hussain’s in his pocket. Rather this shows that his own problems are greater than the problems Imam Hussainrawent through. Every day for Ahmadas was Karbala as his master Muhammadsawwas mocked every single day and so was Islam. He himself was persecuted as well and received a large amount of death threats. Its really sad that a majority of Shia Muslims have rejected this great Imam. We see similar poetry by the non Ahmadi Muslims. It is stated:




Their scholar has said that some 100 Hussain got killed in the section of his heart. Can we compare this to the poetry of Ahmadas? In reality,both are free from any type of mockery.


Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas states:


I am ready to offer my heart and soul for the beauty of Muhammadsaw My body is merely the dust of the lane treaded by the progeny ofMuhammadsaw . I have seen with my heart’s eye and heard with perceptive ears, That the trumpet of the beauty of Muhammadsaw , echoes everywhere. This ever-flowing spring of divine verities which I am distributing freely among God’s creatures, Is but a drop from the ocean of the excellences of Muhammadsaw  .(Majmua-e-Istiharat vol 1. Page 97)
