Day of Ashura was the day Imam Hussain scarified what he had to save Islam from utter distortions. Paying allegiance to Yazid (the tyrant of his time) was the only way for Imam Hussain to survive but Imam hussain still did not approve the Yazid’s government which was not based on the Islamic rules.  Thus Yazid’s army surrounded the prophet Muhammad’s son and his companions and family on the way toward Iraq in the land of Karbala . Yazid’s army killed the men all and beheaded one by one. then all the women and children of the prophet Muhammad were captured.

Imam Hussain rose up against the tyranny of his time to reform the Islamic community of the prophet Muhammad and to promote virtue and to prevent vice as he stated in his will. Read more here

When is Ashura 2017?

Ashura 2017 is on Sunday, the 1st of October (1/10/2017).

Ashura 2017

“Ashura” (/ʌʃuːrʌ /) means “tenth” in Arabic language and the day of Ashura  is the 10th day of Muharram(/Mohærræm/), the first month in the Islamic calendar but each year, the day of Ashura falls in a different day in the Georgian calendar as the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and the Georgian calendar is a solar one.

Ashura

Ashura 2017

Day of Ashura was the day in which Imam Husayn, and all 72 of his companions were violently killed and beheaded one by one and all their women and children were captured.

Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam who prophet Muhammad had stated about him:

“Hussain is from me and I’m from Hussain”

but he was murdered in fifty years following the prophet Muhammad by the people who called themselves Muslim!

Imam Hussain was surrounded by an Army of 30,000  at the land of Karbala on his way to Kufah in the year 61 Hijri (about 680 AD). Paying allegiance to Yazid was the only way for Imam Hussain to survive but Yazid did not believe in prophetess and revelation as he said it openly and his behaviors were against the Islamic rules. Thus there was no way for Imam Hussain except to   sacrifice what they had to save Islam from utter distortion and destruction.

Day of Ashura: Quote about Imam Husayn by Imam Khamenei

Imam Khamenei, the leader of the Islamic nations have quotes about the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam, Imam Husayn (PBUH):

Imam Khamenei said:

We should contemplate how just 50 years after demise of the prophet [Muhammad](PBUH), the Islamic society reached a point that a person like Imam Hussain had no choice but to make such a sacrifice to save the islamic society?

When is Arbaeen 2016?

Arbaeen is the 40 days following the day of Ashura and this year, Arbaeen 2016 will fall on the November 21 in Iraq.

Every year Muslim people leave their usual lives in their countries to walk 80 Km toward the holy shrine of Imam Husayn who was martyred at Karbala.

Arbaeen is the world’s largest annual peaceful gathering held by Muslim people around the world. It is an amazing spiritual journey in which you do not have to concern about food, water or accommodations. Everything is prepared for the pilgrims of Imam Husayn by non-government Muslim people for free on the way to Karbala. You can experience a true love in the real life by all the Muslim people around you especially by the Iraqi Shia people. They do it as they are the followers of Imam Husayn who gave all he had for the God’s sake.

This year, I am going to walk from Najaf to Karbala by my whole family In-Sha-Allah and If God helped me I will publish some photos of this fantastic journey on my Instagram page: @husayn.ashura

 

 

Show Your Love Toward Husayn on Arbaeen

When I was younger, I was seeing people in love with imam Husayn and I tried to understand this kind of Love but I couldn’t feel it. I could not understand the feeling of those people who want to go to Karbala as a pilgrim of Imam Husayn despite all troubles and dangers over there. Walking 80 Km to the holy shrine of Imam Husayn on the day of Arbaeen is a ridiculous way to choose despite all existing vehicle in theses days,  but definitely It is a way to show our love toward Husayn to the world and let all the people in the world know that there is a true love differed from the other loves tried to show by Hollywood movies.

“God Loves who loves Hussain”

احب الله من احب حسینا

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Walking on #Arbaeen is a way to introduce a man who gave all he had for God’s sake to save the last version of the religion from utter distortions; Walking on Arbaeen is a way to hasten the reappearance of Imam Mahdi.
