Importance of Ayyam-e-Aza is crystal clear

By: Begum Hassan Zaidi

Ontario, Canada: It was the seerat of sadiq-e-ale muhammad (pbuh) that when imam sighted the muharram moon his grief increased. People came to him for condolence and matam. In every century this noha and matam remained continue. In the age of taqiya the voice of noha matam did not stop. King jahangir who was the killer of our great scholar Qazi noor ullah shostri who was called shahid e salis, was with his momna queen at the palace balcony. When she sighted the muharram moon tears came out of her eyes and she suddenly said 'hilal e muharram hawaida shud azan dard e shabbir paida shudad.'

In Lucknow as the women sighted the moon they sitting on sheets wept; children and youth were prevented from laughing; married women even newly married weds were asked to break their bangles; wear out red dresses; syed dress up in green while non syed in blue. Delicious dishes were prevented till chehlum rather for 2 months and 8 days; Deserts were not cooked; Sweet dishes were put on the table on 9th rabiulawwal; fish was also not allowed. ilachi dana, shakar paray, khorma and other sweets were remained prepared for tabaruk at sweet shops. haleem was a tradition in ahle sunat wal jamat ( they also destributed tabaruk). Cold drink was considered the best tabaruk in majalis even in the colds and patients after drinking it became healthy. The words of drink (sharbat) are in the original words of imam " shiati in sharibtom maa azbun............" o friends when you drink cold water remind my thirst. The tradition of tea was started after 1926. - (zindagani Shahzada-e-Ali Akbar (as) page 55 author zubdatul ulema syed agha mehdi lakhnavi (late))

My family appreciates the decision of tnfj about referendum in Pakistan. The heads of azadars got heights due to this policy. Its true that azadari is our jugular vein and dearest to all as Agha Moosavi said.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"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."
