Ashura At All Times : The instruction by Imam Khomeini
Imam Khomeini who was the founder of Islamic Republic of Iran had described Imam Hussain’s instruction in his speech:
“…They do not know that weeping for Imam Husayn (A) means perpetuation of his uprising and maintaining the fact that even a small number could stand up against a great empire. Imam Husayn‟s decree is that: “Every day is an Ashura and each territory is Karbala! implies that his movement must be kept alive and active everywhere and at all times. This statement is our manual of action. Just as Imam Husayn (PBUH) stood up and said: “No!” to a great empire, his decrial must be repeated daily and these mourning sessions mean the perpetuation of the negation…”
