The mission of Imam Husayn (a): Resignation vs. Revolution

Night of 6th Muharram, 1424 AH, 2003
Resignation to the will of Allah vs desire for revolution and reform. When we submit to the will of Allah, we should submit fully. Examples from Karbala of Abdullah ibn Hurr who submitted his horse and sword but did not submit himself. Another man submitted himself on the condition that if victory seemed doubtful, he would escape, and on the day of Karbala he did manage to escape by means of a horse he had hidden away. The story of `Awn and Muhammad, the grandsons of Ja`afar ibn Abi Talib al-Tayyar, who submitted fully to the will of Allah and were among the young martyrs of Karbala.Source:
