Remembrance of Imam Husain

Aayat

 ألم

Surat 2 Ayat 1Screen Shot 2014-10-18 at 11.08.41 PM

Alif-lam-mim (A-L-M); the Arabic word alam, which is formed from the three root letters A-L-M, means suffering and pain. In the Quran it points towards the suffering of Imam Husain A.S. The numerical value of Alif-lam-mim in Arabic is 114. There are a total of 114 surats in the Quran. In one way this indicates that the entire Quran grieves the shahadat of Imam Husain. Many ambiya have been made aware by Allah subhanahu of Husain A.S’s martyrdom in Karbala since all ages of time
