In the name of God, The compassionate, The merciful
Self-injury in any ways is forbidden in Islam but If you Google search for images with the title of “Ashura”, you will find lots of bloody terrifying photos showing self-flagellation with chains, knives, swards or blades by some people who are claimed as Shia Muslim people!!
As the day of Ashura is marked by Muslim and Shia people in a completely different way, I made this blog to spread the truth to the extent of my ability and “God does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability” (The holy Quran; 2:286)
Note: All images made by ashuraaa.wordpress.com are “Waqf” or free to use to introduce Imam Hussain (PBUH) and Islamic insights to the world for the sake of God.
Please share images as much as you can to introduce Imam Hussain (PBUH) and the real event of Ashura to the world.
