The month of Muharram is of

 great religious significance to Islamic people the world over. It is held to be the most sacred of all the months, excluding Ramadan. The word "Muharram" is often considered synonymous with "Ashura", the tenth day of the Muharram month.

#Ashura" is a highly important day for both sects of Islam - the Shias and the Sunnis. The Shia muslims 

believe that 🌷#Husayn_ibn_Ali🌷, the grandson of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, became a martyr at the Battle of Karbala on the tenth day of Muharram in 61 AH(680 AD).

Heartfelt condolences to you all on the poignant occasion of Tas’ua or the 9th of the mourning month of Moharram. It is the anniversary of the day on which in the year 61 AH, Imam Husain (AS) asked for a day’s respite prior to the heartrending tragedy of Ashura. As a matter of fact, the grandson of Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) didn’t ask for respite from death, but he gave respite to the Omayyad forces surrounding him and depriving him of water, to ponder on their evil acts, and return to God and Islam.

True, the Imam said that he and his companions wanted to spend the day and the night in prayers and supplications in the Divine Court, before embarking for the other world, but in the process the Imam gave humanity also respite, to contemplate in every age and place, on the magnitude of the oppression of Yazid and his likes, in order to strive more resolutely for justice and virtue for reforming societies.

Now we have a special feature on this day, which is associated in Iran and Iraq with the valiant standard-bearer of Karbala, Hazrat Abu’l-Fazl Abbas (AS), who bravely courted martyrdom on the day of Ashura while trying to bring water to the thirsty encampment of Imam Husain (AS), but making sure that not a drop would touch his own parched lips, since the children in the camp were thirsty. Incidentally, today, because of a day’s difference in sighting the crescent, happens to be the 8th of Moharram in the Subcontinent, where the commemorative ceremonies for Hazrat Abbas (AS) are traditionally held on this day.

  •  allah, there is no god except he, the living, the everlasting. neither dozing, nor sleep overtakes him. to him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. who is he that shall intercede with him except by his permission! he knows what will be before their hands and what was behind them, and they do not comprehend anything of his knowledge except what he willed. his seat embraces the heavens and the earth, and the preserving of them does not weary him. he is the high, the great.
  • there is no compulsion in religion. righteousness is now distinct from error. he who disbelieves in the idol and believes in allah has grasped the firmest tie that will never break. allah is hearing, knowing.
  • allah is the guardian of those who believe. he brings them out from darkness into the light. as for those who disbelieve, their guides are idols, they bring them out from the light into darkness. they are the companions of the fire and shall live in it for ever
