Caravan of Pride

Video: Caravan of Pride (With English Subtitles)

In The Name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful

 The Caravan of Pride (Mawkeb-ul Abaa) is a movie which brilliantly depicts the chain of events that unfolded after the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (a.s.). After the massacre of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and his companions on the plains of Karbala, the remaining members of the Family of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) were taken captive and paraded in a humiliating and inhuman manner from Kufa (Iraq) to Damascus i.e; Shaam (Syria).

The members of the Family of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) were paraded through the most inhuman of conditions and had to face unbearable hardships of the journey in the heat and inhospitable conditions of the blazing desert. Finally they were brought to Yazid ibn Mu`awiyah's Palace in Damascus, Syria.

It was here, in the very fortress of Yazid's unholy empire, that the light of Truth pierced through the dark veils of ignorance which Shaitan had drawn over the eyes of the Muslim masses. Janabe Zainab (s.a.), the daughter of the ever victorious Lion of Allah, Ali Ibne Abu Talib, delivered a unparalleled, pivotal and crucial sermon which awoke the people of Damascus from their deep slumber of heedlessness and shook the foundation of the Umayyad Dynasty, sending it crumbling to the ground.

It was here, that Imam Zain-ul-Abideen (a.s.), in such magnificent words of eloquence, demonstrated to the people of Damascus who exactly it was they were oppressing by telling them the relationship he holds with the Holy Prophet, his great grandfather.

Thus was the revolution of Imam Hussain (a.s.) completed, a revolution against injustice, a revolution against tyranny, a revolution seeking honor over humiliation, truth over falsehood, courage over fright, righteousness over immorality, knowledge over ignorance, a revolution whose shockwaves continue to resonate thousands of years later, an eternal stand against corruption, which proves to be the source of inspiration for humanity at whole.
