Rare belongings of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) in Masjid Imam Husain

Having custody of objects related to Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is considered a great privilege. Believers who love Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) treat it as a prestige and admiration. They cherish it passionately and take blessings from it.

There are many such items exhibited in Masjid Imam Husain in Cairo. Sword, piece of a stick and piece of a dress used by Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) are displayed there. Four hairs of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is also kept there with utmost dignity. The custodian of the sacred items, Al Shaikh Ahmad Ridhwan Abdul Khair explains that normally human hair will disintegrate by passage of seventy to eighty years. But hair of Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is extraordinary as it withstood more than 1400 years!

Egypt has a remarkable tradition of respecting and caring monuments and objects of historical significance. If you travel through length or breadth of the country you could witness many of such effects.

Masjid Imam Husain is a popular tourist destination in a busy alley in Cairo, the city of thousand Minarets. Visitors from all around the world flock at the site which is adjacent to Al Azhar University campus. When we visited the shrine unfortunately the exhibition room of sacred items was closed. So we missed to have a glimpse of it.
