Will Allah judge the blood relatives of «Al-Hussein» on the Doomsday?
This may seem a provocative question, but it is strongly required on the religious scene at the moment, after the growing Shiite talks and tales that Allah will accept the mediation of «Al-Hussein bin Ali» for everyone who visited his shrine or followed his teachings or followed his guidance. These claimed are alleged by the scholars of the Shiite sect, as they promote these ideas amongst their followers. Here, the question arises in the minds, if Al-Hussein will be the intercessor for his followers and supporters, will Allah judge the relatives of «Al-Hussein» on the Doomsday for their actions and sayings.. Or will Allah send them to Paradise without judgment?!
This answer to this question is discussed by the great Islamic scholar and thinker Ali Muhammad Al-Shurafa Al-Hammadi, in his shocking book on extremist ideas, “Muslims … between Religious Speech and the Divine Speech”, which was issued by “Al-Nokhba House for Printing, Publishing and Distribution. The writer assured that the holy Qur’an has clarified this point and revealed the falsity of the claims of the Shiite and Persian scholars. These scholars claim that the members of the House of the Prophet have asked for mandate or immunity for themselves or for their followers, both in this world and in the hereafter. The writer pointed out that there is no immunity to any of the Muslims, no matter how close or kin to the Prophet he is.
The Islamic writer Ali al-Sharafa cites a number of verses of the holy Qur’an in his very important book, “Muslims, between the Religious Speech and the Divine Speech,” which is almost a direct and obvious response to these allegations, as well as to other lies and false tales propagated by the elders and symbols of the Shiite sect about the house and the grandchildren of the Prophet of Allah peace be upon him. The writer says: «When we look at the next verse, we find that it contradicts all the false accounts and allegations, and blow up the false accounts on Al-Hussein and his sons. Allah Almighty says: (And when the trumpet is sounded in Day of Judgement no ties of kinship of any kind or degree shall be of avail in accomplishing a purpose. Ties are simply dissolved and each one is tried upon no other recommendation than the quality of his own deeds nor shall they be able to discourse on any point.). (Al Mu Minun: 101)
Allah Almighty says: (We encircled the neck of every human being with a bird of omen, (as it were) auguring well or ill, and in Day of Judgement will We present each with a book bearing his precise record laid open to view.). (Al Israa: 13)
And Allah Almighty said: («Now» they are told, «you have come back to Us singly, not less alone than when you were alone when We created you at first and delivered you nude naked and bare to the world below». «Now you have come back to Us stripped of all possessions and of all that We had ascribed to you in life.« Nor do We see you accompanied by your intercessors whom you had claimed they enjoyed the same position and power of a god; now the ties of your common fanciful belief are being severed, and those whom you presumed to be godheads have failed your expectation».). (Al An aam: 94)
In the doomsday, everyone will be held accountable for his deeds, whether good or evil. In the doomsday, there is no value for a man’s association with a prophet or a messenger. Rather, a man’s value depends on his deeds. Those who call themselves nobles and masters because of their affiliation with the house of the prophet will have no credit and all are equal before the law in this life, and all are equal before Allah on the Doomsday. There is no mediation because of a relative or a friend on the doomsday. This is confirmed in the verse saying: “33- Then when the deafening uproarious eventful Event* comes about. 34- Man shall then flee from his own brother, 35- From his mother and his father, 36- and from his wife and his children. 37- For each of them then, there is enough trouble of his own.” (Abasa 33-37)
And the verse that says (7- Then he who has done an atom’s weight of good, will see it and profit by it. 8- And he who has done an atom’s weight of evil, will see it and be punished for it.” (Al-Zilzala: 7-8)
On the Day of Judgment, Allah will not exclude the family of Al Hussein or anyone else
In the Day of Judgment, Allah will not exclude any human beings. All people and everyone will be judged without exception to a messenger, prophet, a scholar or a pious man; this includes the criminals and sinners. All human beings will stand barefoot and naked waiting for Allah’s justice and mercy. Allah Almighty says: (He is it Who brought you all into being from one single soul -Adam-and from him did He, by special creation, evolve his mate Eve* And He supplied you with eight heads of cattle -males and females- (sheep, goats, oxen and camels). He forms you in the wombs within your mothers bellies varying your constitution in stages of development one stage after another (from rudimentary to complete state) in the depth of darkness environed by three superimposed dark compartments This is Allah your Creator, Who has the rightful claim to the sovereign authority, there is no Ilah but Him and so how could you reject Him in favour of other objects of worship!). (Al Zumar: 6)
Allah did not exclude anyone from his creation to confirm his amendment and to achieve equality between his creation. There is no advantage for anyone, all creation are equal before the mighty Creator, seeking his mercy and confident in his justice on the doomsday. Then there is no intermediary on that day other than the deeds of man, in confirmation of the Almighty saying: «The Day when neither wealth nor progeny shall be of advantage. Except him who comes to the audience of Allah with his heart in its right place, heartened or filled with devotion». (Al Shu’araa: 88-89)
Therefore, Allah , Almighty, tells people not to believe the tales or sayings and to pay attention to the verses, so as not to depart from the Holy Quran, which came as the light to get people from dimness to grace.
Allah Almighty ordered his creation to be united under the slogan of the Holy Qur’an, which is the link between creation and the Almighty Creator. The holy verse in Al ‘Imran confirms this meaning saying: (Hold firmly together and grasp the eternal and unchangeable sublime system of Allah! Lay hold of it with the mind and do not be discordant among yourselves. Call to mind Allah’s favour that you wear. You were enemies and He accorded your differences and you cherished different principles and practices and by His grace you are now in one accord. You were on the edge of the bottomless abyss of Hell and He saved you from eternal disaster. Thus, Allah expounds to you His revelations so that you may hopefully be guided to His path of righteousness.). (Al-Imran: 103)
The purpose of this verse is to urge Muslims to unite under the banner of Allah, the Holy Quran which is the most powerful bond that links man to his Creator, which prevents creation from spreading enmity and hatred. The holy Qur’an unites the hearts of Muslims so they become brothers because they will all be under one slogan and have one goal, following the light that Allah Almighty has revealed to His messenger to achieve security and peace,. Allah Almighty says, describing the Holy Qur’an: (A Book, the spirit of truth guiding those who lift to Allah their inward sight into all truth, leading them to the path of safety and peace and guiding them, Allah willing, out of darkness and superstition of later times and out of want of spiritual and intellectual sight into intellectual illumination and enlightenment and directing them to the path of righteousness.). (Al-Maidah: 16).
