Mourners descending in Karbala to mark Ashura

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY KARBALA, Iraq: Every part of holy Karbala is a personification of each and every event of Tragedy of Karbala i.e. these are tents of Imam (p) and his Al`ol Beit (p), this is place of meeting with Omar bin Sa’ad, it is the place where Ali Al-Akbar (p) fell down from his horse, here at this place were cut the arms of Abi`l Fazl Al-Abbas (p), and here Al-Imam Al-Hussein (p) went down causing holy Prophet (p) and the whole universe to weep.

Since the advent of Moharram, mourning processions from across the country began descending in this holy city extending condolence to Al-Imam Sahib`ol Amr (p). These processions, at first visit the holy shrine of Qamar bani Hashim Al-Abbas (p), recite elegies, perform latam and then come to the Husseini shrine compound. There they hold majlis al-azaa and perform aza paying rich homage to the Chief of Martyrs Al-Imam Al-Hussein (p) and his devoting-companions.

“Hussein was slaughtered as a lamb...” Muharram marking in Karbala

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Al-Imam Ali Ar-Redha (A) says: “O Ibn Shabib! If you weep for something, then weep for Hussein bin Ali (A), no doubt he was slaughtered as a lamb is slaughtered, and along him were murdered 18 men from Ahl-i-Bayt that no one is like them on earth, and the seven skies and earth wept on his killing.”

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
