When is Ashura 2016?

Ashura 2016 is on Wednesday, the 12th of October.

The day of Ashura (/ʌʃuːrʌ /) is the 10th day of Muharram(/Mohærræm/) which is the first month in the Islamic calendar. As the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and the Georgian calendar is a solar one, therefore each year, the day of Ashura falls in a different day in the Georgian calendar.

There is no day like Ashura. Day of Ashura marks the day in which thirty thousand people who consider themselves as the followers of the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and who call themselves Muslims, gathered around the prophet’s grandson, Imam Husayn, shed his blood and all 72 of his companions and captured their women and children in more than 14 centuries ago in a land called Karbala.

Ashura self-flagellation with knives or chains!!

Self-flagellation is forbidden (Haram) in Islam. Great Shia scholars such as grand Ayatullah Khamenei who is the leader of Islamic Republic of Iran and Ayatullah Sistani, the Shia Leader in Iraq, have prohibited any self-mutilation such as self-flagellation with knives or chains (Tatbir) and even walking on fire. You can see their Fatwas (religious opinions) on tatbir.org

Previously I made several images about this prohibition and now I made some other images which contains the photos of some Shiite scholars who have prohibited such practice.

Quote about Imam Hussain by Prophet Muhammad

Ashura-Prophet-Muhammad

Imam Hussain is the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam but he dose not belong only to Shia Muslims. His life can inspire all the people.

In the above Image I used the Prophet Muhammad’s saying about Imam Hussain (PBUH):
حسین منی و انا من حسین
Hussain is from me and I am from Hussain.”

This saying was quoted in many Shia and Sunni books including Bihar Al-Anvar V.43 and Sonan Termizi, V.5, p.658.
