      The Holy Month of Muharram   09/30/2016

      In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful. [Shrine of Imam Hussein AS in Karbala.]   As-salaamu `alaykum dear friends. The Holy Month of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar, begins on October 2 or 3, 2016, depending on where you live. As we prepare ourselves for this holy time, we at ShiaChat give our sincerest condolences to all our brothers and sisters in humanity regarding the tragic events of the day of 'Ashura'. The Battle of Karbala' happened during this holy month and represents the conflict between oppressed and oppressor, good and evil, justice and injustice, and truth and falsehood.  During this month, we commemorate the martyrdom of Imam al-Hussain (as), the blessed grandson of the Holy Prophet of Islam (s) and the Master of the Youth of Paradise - as well as his relatives and friends, killed and martyred on the 10th of Muharram in 61 AH. While this event happened nearly 1400 years ago, the impact and shockwaves of this event still impact our hearts today.  May Allah SWT accept all our amal (Islamic activities) during these subsequent holy days and make us all among the followers of Imam al-Hussain's (as) path. Please make dua for all of us in the ShiaChat community and all believing momineen worldwide.  Ziyaarat e Ashura   The Martyrdom of Imam Hussain AS   What is Ashura? 40 Ahadith on Azadari   #3 Imam Hussein al-Shaheed ibn Ali (as)   Regards, ShiaChat Team
