Our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said:
"My Grandsons Hassan (RA) and Hussain (RA) are Masters of the youth in Paradise ".
The holy Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) would embrace them in his warm and affectionate arms. He would make both of them sit together on his lap. When the verse of purity (Ayat Tathir) was revealed, the holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) covered them along with their father Hazrat Ali (RA) and their mother Hazrat Fatima (RA) with a Yemeni mantle, and said: "O, God these are my household members."
Hazrat lmam Hussain (R.A)and his opponent Yazeed are on opposite ends of the Heavenly scale. There is no Muslim school of thought that doubts the purity and qualification of the Imam Hussain (R.A). Righteous Muslims know that Imam Hussein is a dear grandson of our Holy Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him صلى الله عليه وسلم ) and that he is a Leader of the Youth of Paradise.
On the other hand, Yazeed is unacceptable to any Muslim. All Muslims condemn him and will continue to do so, for his transgression and for the crimes he committed against Ahl Al-Beit. With such a clear distinction between the two parties, there should be no confusion among the Muslims on account of the commemoration of this great Imam.
By Esaale Sawaab is meant "conveying the reward of" – In this respect there is a Hadith of Hazrat Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him): "Oh Messenger of Allah, when we give charity on behalf of our deceased and perform Haj on their behalf, do they receive the reward of these actions?" The beloved Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) replied: "Without doubt they do receive their rewards. Not only that, but they become very happy, just as any one of you would become happy on receiving gifts". In a second Hadith, the Messenger of Allah says: "Anyone who recites Surah Ikhlas 11 times and then conveys its rewards to the departed souls, Allah will shower rewards on such a person equal to the number of these souls..."
These Ahadith serve as ample proof that the deceased souls do benefit from the good deeds and charities of the living. This is an opportune moment to relate to the reader the saying of Shaikh Sayyiduna Abdul Qadir Jilani (May Allah be pleased with him). Ghaus-ul-Azam said that "whoever in his distress cries to me for help, he will be relieved of his distress; whosoever in his difficulty call by my name, his difficulty will be solved; whosoever in his time of need makes me as his intermediary to Almighty Allah, his needs will be fulfilled. Any person who performs 2 Rakats Namaaz in which after Surah Fateha, recites Surah Ikhlas 11 times and then making salaam sends Durood on the beloved Prophet (Peace be Upon Him), the garden of mercy, after which he thinks of me and takes 11 steps towards the direction of Baghdad calling my name, then presents his need, with Almighty Allah’s permission his need will be fulfilled.
