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.

Shia Muslims do not practice self-flagellation on Ashura

Despite what you  see in the Google image when you search the word of “Ashura”, Any self-mutilation such as self-flagellation with knives, chains or razors even walking on fire is definitely not allowed in Islam, but It seems this is the media policy showing Shia Muslims as violent as they can!

Ritual self-flagellation is forbidden by Shia clerics such as Grand Ayatullah Khamenei who is the leader of Islamic Republic of Iran:

“blood matam (Self-flagellation) is a part of the culture that was made up. It is an issue that has no relation to religion and, without doubt, Allah is not happy with it. Read More…

Ashura is not عاشورا!

As you may know, “Ashura” is English translation for “عاشورا” in Persian and Arabic languages, but when you search both titles separately on Google image, you will find the results completely different!

Ashura-English-Media

How media show “Ashura”

If you notice to websites hosted the images  of the results, you will see that the most results of عاشورا are connected to Iranian websites in Persian language, but most of “Ashura” images are connected to western websites and famous media like IBTimes and The Telegraph.

The question is why such media depict a bloody Ashura and try to attribute this violence to Shia people while self-flagellation with knives or chains is absolutely impermissible in Islam as the command of the supreme leader of Iran, Imam Khamenei, and other clerics.
