In the name of Allah the most Beneficent and Merciful.

Reckon not those who are slain in the way of Allah to be dead. Nay, they are alive with their Lord being sustained. (Surah Aal-e-Imran, 169)

Salamun Alaikum. Welcome to “Followers of the Pure”, an initiative dedicated to those who fight in the way of Allah to defend the pure religion of Islam, the Ahlul Bayt and the Holy Quran. The martyrs are indeed the true ‘followers of the pure’.

But can we really say we know who the martyrs-or-shohda were? What was their ideology and belief? What made them lay down their lives, and all that they had, in the way of Islam? We find ourselves grappling for answers, and largely are unable to understand their message to us.

This website makes a humble attempt in introducing them. It narrates their inspiring biographies, wills, memoirs, sayings as well as ahadith, or traditions of the Holy Infallibles on martyrs and martyrdom. Reading about their life and their words highlights how they embodied Islam in body and soul. A martyr is a true inspiration for all and through his/her martyrdom, is capable of reviving a dead and decaying society from dark just like a candle that burns itself inorder to provide light to those around it.

 

“Followers of the Pure” also includes a blog section, where articles on Islam are added from time to time.
