TEN MIRACULOUS EVENTS THAT TOOK PLACE AT THE TIME OF THE MARTYRDOM OF HAZRAT IMAM HUSAIN (RADI ALLAHU ANHU)


According to the Kitaab, "Thareek-ul-Khulafa", ten miraculous events were recorded about the time of the Shahaadah of Hazrat Imam Husain (radi Allahu anhu). These events were also included on pages 46 and 47 of the Kitaab, "Karamaat-e-Sahaba", by Molvi Ashraf Ali of Thana Bhavan.
It is stated in "Thareek-ul-Khulafa" by Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti (radi Allahu anhu) that, "When Sayyiduna Imam Husain (radi Allahu anhu) was martyred, for seven days the following conditions prevailed on earth
When the sun rose each day, there was a constant shroud of redness covering the earth as if the sun's rays came out in the form of a lifeless blanket.
There was a continuous scene of stars colliding with each other in the skies.
His martyrdom took place on the 10th of Muharram 60 A.H. and on this day there was a total eclipse of the sun.
From about six months prior to his martyrdom, a strange redness enveloped the horizon of the skies, which gradually disappeared, and such a phenomenon was never witnessed again.
On the day of his martyrdom, beneath every stone in Baitul Muqaddas, there appeared fresh blood.
Grass and straw that was used in the oppressor's army (i.e. Yazid's army) had all suddenly turned to burnt out ashes.
The oppressor's army had slaughtered a female camel to feed the soldiers. From the meat of this slaughtered animal, sparks of fire began to fly all the time.
When the meat of the slaughtered camel was cooked, it turned out to be bitter and poisonous.
One person who spoke ill about Sayyiduna Imam Husain (radi Allahu anhu) was punished by Almighty Allah in such a way that he was hit by two falling stars from the sky which diminished his power of sight progressively.
Regarding the conditions of these days (of martyrdom), Hazrat Abu Na'eem (radi Allahu anhu) states in his Kitaab, "Dala'il", that Hazrat Umme Salma (radi Allahu anha) narrated that when Hazrat Imam Husain (radi Allahu anhu) was martyred, the Jinns were heard to wail and weep openly in expression of their grief."
