" Abbas tera thani dunya me kahan momkin Dunya ko jo deta hai usne tujhe manga hai "
The holy son of Hazrat Imam Ali A.S and the younger brother of Hazrat Imam Husain A.S was born in Madina on the 4th of Shabaan in 26th A.H. The revered mother of Hazrat Abbas A.S was Janabe Ummul-Baneen , Hazrat Fatema Kalabiya and His holy father was the Leader of the Pious Hazrat Imam Ali A.S. The birth of Hazrat Abbas A.S is so special as the history behind his birth tells us the beautiful story when Hazrat Ali A.S after the martyrdom of Janabe Fatema Zehra S.A came to his brother Hazrat Aqeel and opened His heart’s desire of marrying a girl from the bravest tribe. His wish was that the child born through her would be courageous as his father and be similar in the true love , devotion and respect for Imam Husain A.S just as Hazrat Ali A.S were a true devotee of Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa S.A.W. Imam Ali A.S was also aware of the Tragedy of Karbala in the future and knew that His son Husain would be in need of an affectionate supporter like Hazrat Abbas A.S. When Hazrat Ali A.S married to Janabe Fatema Kalabiya He was granted with four sons: 1. Abbas Ibne-Ali 2. Abdullah Ibne-Ali 3. Uthman Ibne-Ali and 4. Jafar Ibne-Ali . Janabe Fatema was then titled as Ummul-Baneen (The mother of sons). All her sons were sacrificed for Imam Husain A.S in Karbala.
When Hazrat Abbas A.S was born everyone was very cheerful on this joyful occasion and when Janabe Zainab saw her newborn brother she hurried to take him in her arms and whispered something in his ear. When she was asked about what she had whispered to the baby she said : " I only conveyed the salutation of my holy mother." Janabe Fatema Zehra S.A before her departure from this world had told her daughter that : "O’ Zainab when your brother is born don’t forget to send my salam to my son Abbas." As the years passed by Janabe Zainab longed for the birthday of her brother Abbas so that she could fulfil her promise and finally on the 4th of Shabaan she was able to convey the message of her holy mother which she had kept in her heart for so long. The holy brother of Hazrat Husain A.S was named Abbas , meaning "the Lion of the Jungle" and of course what other name would suit the son of the Lion of God. His exquisite titles are : Qamare-Bani Hashim (The moon of the Hashimites) , he was endowed this title because of his beauty and elegance , other titles are Abdus-Saleh , Al-Fadi , Alamdare Dashte-Karbala , Saqqa-e-Sakina , Babul-Hawaij , Hamil-ul-Lawa , and many more.
Everytime we hear the name of Hazrat Abbas A.S we recall his sacrifice for Imam Husain A.S and his promise of fetching water for his beloved niece Janabe Sakina and the most important of all he is indeed the most famous standard bearer in the history of Islam. Speaking of the standard and its bearers in the history of Islam I would like to present and translate an article written by my father (Maulana Maqbool Ahmed) as follows below.
ALAM aur ALAMDAR
(Standard and the Standard bearer)
" Alam , Rayat and Lawa are arabic words carrying the same meaning and their translation would be , symbol , banner or flag. The history of the standard have a connection to the history of mankind when its origin take us back in time to the days of Hazrat Adam A.S. When Qabeel had killed his brother Habeel due to his jealousy towards him this story was followed by the first war on the earth between Hazrat Sheeth A.S and Qabeel. During this dreadful fight Hazrat Sheeth A.S wore a white dress which was sent by Allah and the angels had descended from heaven to be the standard bearers in this first holy war carrying white coloured banners. When the war was over Qabeel had failed and was taken a prisoner by the angels who carried him away to the place of Ayn-ush-Shams where he finally died. His children became the servants of Hazrat Sheeth A.S who was the successor of his father , Hazrat Adam A.S.(taken from Manaqib Ibne Shahr-Ashaub)
In certain history writings there is mentioned that the flag has its roots in Egypt, and in one hadith it is written that the first banner was made during the lifetime of Hazrat Ibrahim A.S. It all began when Hazrat Ibrahim A.S confronted Rome in a battle with His high-flown flag when He liberated Hazrat Loot A.S from the prison of the Romans. Since then the holy standard of Islam have always been in the hands of the offspring of Hazrat Ibrahim A.S and it was always they who raised it whenever it was needed. At the Age of Ignorance (Jaheliyyah) it still was a custom that every group of one creed or tribe had their particular standard by which it was easy to recognize or distinguish their seed or religion. During a war the both sides appeared behind their flying flags.
One thing is certain and all the writers of the Islamic history agree to the fact that the banner of the tribe of Quraish had always been the property of Qasi Bin-Kalab thereafter it was handed over to Bani-Hashim. After the day of Mab’ath the Islamic flag was pre
St. Peter's German Evangelical Church
The St. Peter’s German Evangelical Church at Kreischerville (now Free Magyar Reformed Church) is representative of the many small churches built for immigrant congregations on Staten Island during the second half of the nineteenth century. The church complex – church, parish house, and rectory – recalls the era when Charleston was known as Kreischerville, as well as the early-twentieth-century period when Hungarian immigrants maintained the separate identity of the small village. Erected in 1883 as the gift of local industrialist Balthasar Kreischer, the church reflects the paternalistic role that industrialists often played in the development of quasi-company towns such as Kreischerville. Though characteristic of the small, wood-framed structures built in the villages of Staten Island and elsewhere, the Carpenter Gothic church, probably designed and built by local craftsmen, is distinguished by its unusual porch that is domestic in scale and form, and by the emphasis on verticality provided by the tall spire and rows of small gabled dormers in the steeply-pitched gable roof.
Through its pastor, the Reverend Jacob Ganss, who led the German congregation throughout its existence, the Kreischerville Church was linked with nearby German Protestant congregations. As the Hungarian population in the village of Kreischerville grew, a Magyar Reformed church was established in 1915 and met in St. Peter’s church, which the Hungarian congregation soon acquired The attached parish hall, an early addition to the church, and the rectory, designed by builder/architect Royal Daggett and built in 1926 by the Hungarian congregation, complete the complex, which is enclosed by a distinctive fence with posts of Kreischer brick. The history of the Hungarian congregation, which in 1933 affiliated with the small Hungarian Reformed Church in America denomination (established in 1920), documents the important role that churches played in the lives of immigrant groups.
The Development of Kreischerville
During the early and mid-nineteenth century, the town of Westfield on the southwestern side of Staten Island was a rural area with scattered small settlements; because of the extensive land holdings of the Androvette family, the hamlet near the juncture of Arthur Kill Road and Sharrotts Road was known as Androvetteville. Sharrotts Road connected the community with the village of Woodrow to the east, while the Arthur Kill Road led north to Rossville and the Blazing Star Ferry and also south to Tottenville and additional ferry service to New Jersey. Several small lanes led to the waterfront, much of which was salt marshy and homes not located near the main roads were near the shore. The residents of Androvetteville included farmers, oystermen, ship joiners, and watermen. By 1850, there were two stores in the hamlet and the West Baptist Church stood north of the intersection of Sharrott’s Road and Arthur Kill Road.
The area around Androvetteville changed dramatically in the mid-1850s with the discovery of refractory fire clays in the vicinity, and the purchase of clay deposits and subsequent development of a fire bricks manufacturing works by Balthasar Kreischer." In 1845 Kreischer and a partner had established a business in Manhattan to produce fire brick – a fire-resistant brick used in many industrial applications. Kreischer soon was sole proprietor of the operation that was one of the first in the United States to provide fire brick. In 1853 Kreischer became aware of refractory clay deposits in Westfield.
He acquired several tracts with clay deposits and purchased the rights to mine clay on nearby land. Two years later Kreischer established a brick works at the edge of (he Arthur Kill (Staten Island Sound), and in 1858 he enlarged his works on Staten Island with the construction of an addition to the factory for the production of clay retorts (vessels made of fire clay in which coal was heated to produce gas). As Kreischer’s brick works and clay mining began to dominate Androvetteville, the area became known as Kreischerville. In 1876 the Staten Island facility was enlarged and at that time the Manhattan plant was closed; the newly-expanded works were destroyed by fire in 1878 and were immediately rebuilt. The Kreischer Brick works was a major producer of building materials in the metropolitan area, and like many operations, maintained a headquarters in Manhattan.
Balthasar Kreischer, who retired from active management of the brick works in 1878, died in 1886; the Arm of B. Kreischer & Sons was continued by three of his children: George F., who had joined the company in 1870, Charles C., and Edward B.^ In 1887 George Kreischer entered into an agreement with the New York Anderson Pressed Brick Company and the Anderson works was built adjacent to the Kreischer facility. The brick works were again badly damaged by Arc and rebuilt in 1892.
