Philosophy of Azadari -Ayatullah sistani


What is the philosophy of Azadari (mourning and lamentation) for Imam Husain? Ayatullah sistani


Important…Orders From Ayatullah sistani…Unless source is mentioned, copying or reproducing these questions and answers in any manner is not allowed.”

There is no doubt that the tragedy of Kerbala, when ascribed to the killers, is a criminal and terrible act. However when ascribed to Husain (A) himself, it represents a conscious confrontation and a courageous resistance for a sacred cause. The whole nation had failed to stand up to Yazid. They had succumbed to his will, and deviation and regression towards the pre-Islamic ways were increasing.

Passiveness by Husain (A) in this situation would have meant the end of Islam as we know it. Thus Husain (A) took upon himself the responsibility of the whole nation. The greatest tragedy was that one who stood up for the noblest of causes, the defense of Islam, was cut down in so cruel a manner.

It is for this reason that the sacrifice of Husain (A) is commemorated annually throughout the Muslim world. Our sorrow never abates as we relive the tragedy.

The commemoration of Ashura on the 10th of Muharram every year serves to remind us of the sacrifices of the family of the Prophet (S). It also makes us aware of the people, then and now, who tried to destroy Islam and the family of the Prophet (pbuh) and all that they stood for – as well as those who watched, listened and did nothing.

  7. salam alaikum, i just want to know if a husband is very violent and beats his wife very badly like banging her head half a dozen times against wall and throwing things at her. Is it allowed in islam and is the wife right in leaving him in such circumstances. And is the husbands family right in encouraging this sort of behaviour and also is husbands family permitted to make the girl severe all ties with her family. Khudahafiz
