On the 7th day he was named Husaien and his Aqeeqah [Goat was sacrificed] was performed. The Prophet
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ commanded Bibi Hazrat Faatimah Tuz Zahraa... to remove his hair and to give silver in charity equivalent to the weight of the hair.
Imaam Husaien
رضي الله عنه was without doubt a very handsome personality. From his chest down to his blessed feet he was the image of Prophet Muhammad صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ,whereas his elder brother Hazrat Imaam Hasan رضي الله عنه was the image of the Prophet, صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ from his chest up to his blessed head.
Hazrat Imaam Husaien, was taught by the Prophet and Hazrat Bibi Faatima and Hazrat Alee. [May Allaah be pleased with them]. The. Holy Prophet
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ loved Hazrat Imaam Husaien due to his piety and pure heart. In every way he was superior and exalted in wisdom, manners, piousness, devotion and lineage. He knew the laws of Islam and the tradition of the Holy Prophet [Sunnat] very well.
Hazrat Imaam Husa
ien رضي الله عنه was a very kind, gentle, generous, kindhearted and Allaah /God-fearing personality. He always cared for the poor and oppressed, assisted the helpless, gave comfort to those in pain and sorrow and showed great love and affection towards orphans. He was the embodiment of the character of his Honorable Grandfather صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ and of his blessed parents.
His tolerance and patience were also exemplary. This was manifested by the fact that his martyrdom had been foretold by the Holy Prophet
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ, and even though he was aware of this, he was still patient and waited for the Will of Allaah Almighty, to take its course. Hazrat Imaam Husaien was also blessed with bravery of the highest degree and this bravery and fearlessness was manifested on many occasions, particularly during the Battle of Karbalaa.
The Prophet Muhammad
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ has said,
“Husaien is from me and I am from Husaien. Whosoever has kept Husaien as his beloved, Allaah is his beloved.”
This means that the Holy Prophet Muhammad and Imaam Husaien [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] are extremely close to each other as if they are one. The remembrance of Imaam Husaien is the remembrance of the Prophet
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ the friendship of Imaam Husaien is the friendship of the Prophet and the enmity of Imaam Husaien رضي الله عنه is the animosity of Prophet Muhammad. صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ
