Ashura | God’s gifts in a quote by Imam Hussain

Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam who was martyred on the day of Ashura at Karbala. He had only a few men along with the women and children when he was surrounded by the Yazid’s army of 30,000 people but he still refused to pay allegiance to Yazid…

Why didn’t Imam Hussain save his life by paying allegiance?

How was the life in Imam Hussain’s view?

Beware that the people’s need of you, are the God’s gifts to you. Thus do not become tired of these gifts.

امام حسین علیه السلام:  إنَّ حَوائِجَ النّاسِ اِلَيكُم مِن نِعَمِ اللّه ِ عَلَيكُم فَلاتَمَلُّوا النِّعَمَ  

نياز مردم به شما از نعمت هاى خدا بر شما است ؛ از اين نعمت افسرده و بيزار نباشيد

Mahdi is the promised man from the descendant of Husayn

The promised Mahdi is the last savoir of Man who is living among us now. He is a man from the descendant of Husayn, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who is the last prophet sent by God had said about Mahdi:

قال النبی (صلی الله علیه وآله): “لاتذهب الدنیا حتّی یقومَ بأمر أُمتّی رجل من ولدالحسین یملأها عدلا کما ملئت ظلماً و جوراً

The world will not come to an end until a man from the descendants of Husayn takes charge of the affairs of the world and fills it with justice and equity as it is filled with injustice and tyranny.”
-Prophet Muhammad (PBUH); Bihar al-anwar, Vol. 51, P. 66

Muslim people also believes in Jesus (PBUH) as the holy prophet of God. Muslims believes that Jesus was not killed according to what is written in the holy Quran and he will reappear to help Imam Mahdi. Read more here.

Ashura 2016 in Iran is commemorated by Shiite Muslim people in Iran and other countries.

Ashura is a day on which the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Imam Husayn and all 72 of his companions gave all he had to reform the Islamic community of the prophet Muhammad. They all were violently killed on the day of Ashura at Karbala and their women and children were all captured but they revived Islam by their blood till now.

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.
