Karbalayians mark Azaao Bani Assad

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Azaao Bani Assad is commemorated on Moharram 13 across the globe to mark the burial of Chief of Martyrs Al-Imam Al-Hussein bin Ali (AS) and his 72 faithful companions.

Clan of Bani Assad on insistence of their women stood for burial of Karbala martyrs. Despite being chained by Yazidi forces, Al-Imam Zein Al-Abidin (AS) by the will of Allah came to bury his respected father Sibtor Rasol Hussein bin Ali (AS) because an infallible (ma’soum) could not be buried except by a infallible.

Marking the occasion, big mourning processions and majalis were held in the holy city of Karbala.

A procession attended by black dressed men, women and children was taken out. It went to Baab-i-Qiblah Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS), and then culminated at the holy shrines of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS) and his brother Al-Abbas bin Ali (AS) amid cries and wails of men and women on the mazlumiah of Ahli Beit (AS).

Meanwhile, majalis were also held.

  "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 ..
