Qom’s leading cleric: Shedding blood in Azadari “lawful”
By: Sayed Imam
HOLY CITY OF QOM, Iran: The leading scholar in the holy city of Qum,
Ayatullah Sheikh Vahid Khorasani who is among the most senior clerics,
addresses statements made by an individual telling people to not cry
loudly during mourning sessions for Ahlulbayt, according to a video.
In the video
The Ayatullah also goes over the Fatwas (verdicts) of previous
scholars on the Mourning rituals and he even states that shedding
blood for the sake of mourning Ahlulbayt is Halal (lawful).
Here is the original fatwah of Grand Ayatullah Muhaqiq (researcher)
Sheikh Naeni that Sheikh Khorasani is referencing to in the video:
Afsos (woay) to those people who wish to erase these (Hussaini
Sha’air) rituals.Beware people of Iran..know the smallest word spoken
against the Hussaini sha’air breaks the back of the seal of the Holy
Prophets (p).these azadari rituals - chest beating, beating with
chains - have the highest need of being protected.
Whose words are these?”Mercy be on those loud cries (sarkhaat) made
for our sake”..those unwise peaople are incorrcet when they say don’t
raise voice when crying.this is our 6th imam the head of our school of
thought this hadees was his hadees so who is this jurist(to disregard
this statement ?) those jurists whose era has ended the jurist naeni ,
jurist barojurdi, the jurist haeri, these were jurists and they said
beat your chests, hit yourself with chains, and if you shed blood,
then shed it.
these are jurists this is jurispudent lower your voice when crying?
What type of nonsense this person is speaking?sayha? whay sayha? Sayha
is a type of howling/screeching. So what is sarkhaat..a powerful/loud
“sayha” is called sarkhaat. The sixth imam said o Lord have mercy on
those loud shreiks made for the sake of mourning our tragadies.o Allah
I entrust you with this matter. All this nonsense over something
apparent. Muhaqiq al naeni even he the pride (of the jurists) that
person who the greatest of scholars become proud by just being able to
understand his arguments in “doubtful clothes” (a jurispudence book by
naeni ) this man the pride( of scholars) said: chest beating, chain
beating, for the sake of syed ush shuhada (as) even if it causes you
to bleed –is ja’ez(allowed) this ruling is not an answer made without
proper understanding. You (speaking to the audience) are the people of
jurisprudence, this fatwah . look how gallant this fatwa is.
when this fatwa was issued the giants of our school of thought, the
champions of religion such as syed Mohsin Hakeem when asked to endorse
this fatwa he wrote of our sheikh (Naeini) is far beyond the need of
the approval of someone like me (scholars) such as the jurist shahrudi
who said it *(this Fatwa of naeni) is right ful in every aspect. The
same with all of the great scholars till you reach those people who
are resting right there ( he is pointing to an area in Holy shrine of
Masuma Qum where many scholars are burried) they are the cornerstones
This Haeri *the founder of Howza Qum) and this is his fatwa , that
Barujurdi from whom people seek cures (through the blessings of his
grave) in our month (Muharram) people tie clothes to his shrine (for
blessings) and then take them on the day of ashura to use to cover
their Alams This Burujurdi (Jurist) says: any ritual that is known to
be a type of Azadari, people must emulate them. The are the jurists of
our school of thought, those people who have studied every aspect and
every argument of the doctrine(self harm). they have examined all the
hadees, their sources and narration chains. Those people who have
studied every aspect and every argument of the doctrine and have
examined all the secondary as well as first order aspects of the
rullings, and fully examined the issue of damage to one self.
After completeing all of this invetigation they have said in this way
(the azadari ritual discussed earlier) there is absolutely no problem.
on the day of Ashura people should only look towards karbala.. where?
..that place where the doubters were answered Mirza Shirazi, the
second Mirza, hundereds (of scholars) have bragged about being one of
his students, even people like Al Balaghi who was one of his smallest
Even a person like this (Mirza Shirazi) On the day of ashura would go
out bare headed and bare foot and would beat his chest while holding
on to the banner of (Ashura) proccession. This jurist, the support of
this ummah. On ashura keep your eyes on his example, during Fatmiyah
you should listen to who?
Listen and follow the example of that person (Mirza Shirazi) , people
like marhoom ayatullah milani and ayatullah khoie these two scholars
were only mere students of his students. Keep your ears to him what
does he (Mirza Shirazi) say? He said (for the occasion of Fatmiyah):
has the news of nail (Masmari) reached you .Go ask that chest which
was the treasure of Secrets (of the Prophet of Allah) (Reffering to
the nail on the door that pierced the chest of Fatima (sa).
On the day of ashura and on 3rd jamadi us sani (the martyrdom of
Hazrat Fatima Zahra (sa) all the groups which beat their chest and
beat themsleves with chains must come out and beat themsleves with
chains for the sake of that person (Fatima Zahra (sa) who Ali ibne
abitalib the giant of Mankind when the halo of moon light made it
possible to finf her hidden grave he placed his head on the grave and
said: My soul is trapped in this grievous sigh, I wish it would raise
its self with this exhale.
Qom Marje negates reports on his views … urges Sha’a’ir Al-Hosseinia worth
HOLY CITY OF QOM, Iran: One of Holy Qom’s grand Ayaat, Ayatullah Sheikh Al-Wahid Al-Khorasani, has belied reports which said that the Ayatullah criticized some Sha’a’ir Al-Hosseinia (doing chest beating, tatbeer to gush out blood, reciting noha and marasi, weeping etc to signify grief on martyrdom of Al-Imam Al-Hossein (AS)).
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
