Dargah Hazrat Abbas Lucknow

This is a monument of Faith , custodians of Faith , the Dargah Hazrat Abbas is the replica of his Shrine in Karbala...
A Hindu person went into the Dargah bowed , came out, outside are the Alam shops , he asked for a alam in gold to place on the Holy Shrine , the guy did not have one ready , he said he would give it to him the next day, the Hindu gentleman paid the entire amount, the Shia shop keeper of Alams was curious , he asked him has your prayer been answered, the Hindu replied it will be fulfilled the next morning hence I am placing the Alam..This a true incident..There are many tales , its about Faith .Faith is untouched by bigotry, or Sunnism or Shiasm or Hinduism..
Ask you shall recieve.. ask with your heart and not through your selfish soul.
For me this Hazrat Abbas 's Dargah is the first place I visited after I tied the knot to my wife 30 years back, than Asif Shakir my eldest son married a girl from Kazmain after the Nikkah we bought him and his wife at about 1 am at the locked gates of this Dargah to offer thanks..We got a wish, we got a daughter instead of a daughter in law, we bought her home, let her complete her graduation..this year she got a First class.
My eyes are dripping with thanks to this Holy Saint..he gave us more than his handful.. the only Shia Saint without Hands .. He gave his hands protecting the Mashke Sakina , bloodied waters of Euphrates, he was incidentally not battling the Kafirs, these were Namazis of Yazids army, who prayed 5 times a day, performed Haj fasted during Ramzan..Yes Islam changed ovenight in Karbala.. Barbarism home grown staple diet of the Arab bedouin..a hand for a hand an eye for an eye..
Islam spread because one Man who lives after Death protecting Allahs Bayt ..
Shah Ast Hussain..
So this is Dargah Hazrat Abbas..
On Athvi the caravan of Imam Hussain moves away from the frontiers of his beloved Hindustan, back to Karbala, but a little girl keeps turning her moist eyes back and forth, yes Little Sakina knows Chacha Abbas .. will remain behind answering prayers on behalf of his Moulah Akka Hussain..
Yes I cry I never needed a Mullah to remind me of my birhright bound to tears for Fatima..I do not need to dramaztize my pain, I do not need to be forced to cry.. I am a drop of a tear they call it heresy of my Faith..
Yes a Shia is one who comes from a Shia Mothers Womb..
You cant clone a Shia.. the only segment among Muslims..
You need to be born a Shia to convert to Islam..
