The smallest martyr of Karbala was Imam Hussain’s six-month-old son, Hazrat Ali Asghar (PBUH), who was killed with a three-branched arrow on the day of Ashura while he was on the hands of Imam Hussain (PBUH).
Therefore, each year an special great ceremony is held all over the wold on The International day of Ali Asghar (or global day of Ali Asghar) to mark the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Ali Asghar (PBUH).
These special ceremonies are conducted on the first Friday of Muharram in all the cities of Iran or on the first Sunday in other countries and a huge number of mothers with their babies join in although the famous broadcasting web sites such as BBC, huffingtonpost, independent and so on totally ignore theses great annually ceremonies!
Mothers usually dress their babies by green color to memorize Hazrat Ali Asghar (PBUH). The name of Hazrat Ali Asghar (PBUH) is also written on the black headband.
Why we never see these photos on the western media but we always see lots of the bloody photos of self-flagellation under the keyword of Ashura ?
Why they try to attribute these bloody self-flagellation performed by some minority of people to Shia Muslim people while self-flagellation is forbidden in Islam?
Congratulation to the 12th Imam and the Imam of our time, Imam Mahdi, and all of his followers for Eid al-Ghadir.
May Allah hasten the reappearance of him and bless him and all of his followers.
Ghadir Khumm is a place between the two cities of Mecca and Medina where the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) stopped while he was returning from his last Hajj pilgrimage and waited for three days till all the people gathered. Then, he held up Imam Ali’s hand and said:
“for whoever I am his leader, this Ali is his leader.”
The Prophet continued about Imam Ali:
“O’ God, love those who loves him, and be hostile to those who is hostile to him.”
