Azadari e Hussain .
The hosting of majlis matam juloos or processions is the basic ingredient of Shiasm.
This is what separates us from the rest of our Muslim brethren, though we believe in Allah Hi Holy Prophet , His Holy Book.
We also pay tribute to the Ahle Bayt..and Ale Mohomed , the heritage of the Holy Messenger of Islam.
For two mont eight days the Shias mourn for Imam HUssain his progeny, the carnage at Karbala this mourning binds us all, globally, we maybe part of a nation but we are part of a spiritual nation without borders called Hussainiyat.
On Ashur 10 day of Imam Hussains Martyrdom the Shias carry Tazias to the cemeteries, bleed , and remember the sacrifice of Imam Hussain..the Saviour of Islam..
In the words of Mohammad Ali Jauhar,
Qatal Hussain asal main marg Yazid hai
Islam Zinda hota hai har Karbala kay bad.
Khawaja Moinuddin Chisty’s powerful verses epitomise the reverence and devotion of Muslims towards Imam Hussain:
Shah ast Hussain, Badshah ast Hussain
Deen ast Hussain, Deen Panah ast Hussain
Sardad na dad dast, dar dast-e-yazeed,
Haqaa key binaey La ila ast Hussain
Ruler is Hussain, Emperor is Hussain,
Faith is Hussain , guardian of faith is Hussain .
Offered his head and not the hand to Yazid.
Truly, the mirror of faith is Hussain
Razar Rumi has given a beautiful definition in his blog post, that I quote several times , so awe struck I am..of Shah Ast Hussain
