Sayyiduna Husayn ibn 'Ali was born on 3rd Sha'ban. This is his maqam. رضي الله عنهما
He lost his grandfather, Rasūlullāh ﷺ when he was a young child whilst he was the most beloved person in the world to him. Can you imagine the pain? He lost his mother, Sayyidah Fatimah al-Zahra just six months later whilst she was the one who would embrace him and wipe away his tears as a young child. Can you imagine the hardship? He saw the martyrdom of his father, Sayyiduna 'Ali whilst he was the leader of the believers. Can you imagine the difficulty? He saw his brother, al-Hasan laying down in his final moments whilst he was the beloved of his heart and his best friend. Can you imagine the hardship? He witnessed the martyrdom of his baby child on the battlefield of Karbala whilst he held him in his arms. Can you imagine the test? He left Madinah whilst it was the city that he grew up in, to fulfil the mission of his Beloved ﷺ. Can you imagine the sacrifice? He experienced hunger and thirst for days upon end whilst he was the grandchild of the Prince of al-Kawthar. Can you imagine the patience? He saw the oppression of his household whilst they were purified and raised, yet he never lost hope. Can you imagine the courage? He gave up his soul in order to bring life to this religion. Can you imagine his greatness?
He lived a life of hardship to give ease to us. He went through war so we could experience tranquility. He led the way just so we could follow. No believer goes through any test in this life except they are able to take him as an example, a role model, and a source of comfort. رض الله عنهم
The star of Bareilly writes about the Prince of Paradise whose birthday is 3rd Shaban:
Yā shahīd e karbala - yā dāfaýe karb o balā
Gul rukhā shahzada e gulgūń quba imdad kun
O martyr of Karbala! O remover of sorrow and difficulty;
Of rosey countenance, Prince of red robe, help me!
The entire poem of 12 couplets is dedicated to Imam Husayn رضي الله عنه.
