๐ŸƒOne of the lessons of the Hosseini movement is the lesson of #zeal and mettle. Zeal means trying to preserve and maintain what is necessary to preserve, and human bias towards what is valuable to him.
๐ŸƒZeal and #mettle has been emphasized a lot in the religious texts of #Islam, as in some hadiths, the attribute of zeal is considered one of Allah's attributes, and a zealous person is considered to be beloved by Allah.
๐Ÿƒ#Imam_Sadiq (AS) says: โ€œIndeed, #Allah is zealous and loves every zealous person.โ€
(Kafi, vol. 5, p. 536)
๐ŸƒIn one division, zeal is divided into two types: 1- Religious zeal: It means that a person is sensitive towards preserving religious values.
๐Ÿƒ2- #Zealousness towards maharem: It means that a person is sensitive towards his maharem and does not allow them to be exposed to the sight and aggression of non-mahrams people.
๐ŸƒBoth types of zeal exist in Hosseini's movement. The formation of Hossein's movement was based on religious zeal and protection of true divine values and fighting against the enemies of religion and preventing the weakening of divine values in the society, etc.

๐ŸƒImam Hussein (AS) said in the path of Karbala: โ€œDon't you see that the truth is not followed and the falsehood is not forbidden?โ€
(Tohaf al-Uqool, p. 245)
๐ŸƒImam Hussain (AS) taught #Muslims with his movement that if there is religious zeal in a Muslim, he dose not remain silent in the face of wrong, but fights against it and sacrifices his life in this way.
๐ŸƒThe Islamic society and Muslims more than ever need to learn the important lesson of zeal from the #Hussaini_movement, because today this characteristic has faded among Muslims and the Islamic society.
๐ŸƒIf the Islamic countries had religious zeal, they would not be silent in the face of the tragedy of genocide in #Gaza, but would rise up against Israel and its supporters with all their might and...

๐Ÿ’  How sorrowful was Imam Kadhim (pbuh) in the first ten days of Muharram?

Imam Reza (PBUH) said,

With the advent of the month of Muharram, my father Imam Kadhim (pbuh) would never be seen laughing; gloom and sadness would overcome him for (the first) ten days of the month; and when the tenth day of the month would dawn, it would be a day of tragedy, grief and weeping for him.
