Kullo Yaumin Ashura… Karbala covered in black to mourn Sibt Ar-Rasul (S)

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY KARBALA, Iraq: Tens of thousands of mourners continue gathering in the holy city of Karbala for commemoration of Ashura – tenth day of Moharram when Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS) was brutally and unjustly slaughtered by Yazidi forces along with his 72 near and dear ones some 1,400 years ago in the scorching desert of Karbala.

Husseini elegies depicting sufferings of Ahlil Beit (AS) are heard on loudspeakers from every nook and corner of this holy city. Giant banners and posters inscribed with Karbala Tragedy, words of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS), condolence statements, sayings of Prophet Muhammad (S) and Imam Al-Asr (AS) regarding his lofty status are seen hanged at walls of buildings, husseiniyaat and holy shrines.

Husseini mourning processions march day and night on drum beats at the streets of this city chanting ‘Wa Husseiniaa’.

  "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 ..
