  1. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    So if one wears black clothing and mourns for imam Hussein during throughout Muharram is not rewarded ? Are you implying one participation is nullified of any reward because of what he or she is wearing? Furthermore, what's your view on ijtihad ?
  2. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    Lets look at the facts: (1) You have not provided any hadith which have any relevance to Muharram, (2) Another fact is and again i will state this; Imams (as) have not "Categorically" forbidden wearing black clothing during Muharram. (3) Hadiths that you have provided are not listed under any chapter which forbids wearing black clothes during Muharram or that they have any relevance to Muharram (4) Hadtith that you listed are not corroborated or supported by any other Imams (as) which forbids wearing Black clothing during Muharram. (5) Your perspective is based upon assumption unless proven otherwise by a mutawatir hadith from the Imams (as) (6) Taqlid is also rejected by yourself (7) You have rejected Fiqi Jurist who have given their decree. (8) I'm guessing you havent spent most of your life studying fiqh. (9) Apparently you have not check the authenticity of all Hadith, according to the link i have provided 1or 2 hadith are Mursal weak (10) You are using the context of the hadith for your own justification, while the context is clear regarding salah. (11) The noble women who were present at Karbala wore black in the present of Imam, but this is baseless for you as well. This will suffice for now.
  3. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    Yes you have dismissed some of these jurists by stating: No act is mustahab without a clear hadith of Masumeen (as) …Well what have you exactly proven? Imams (as) general statement in prohibition of black clothes have "Absolutely Nothing" to do with wearing black on mourning occasion! This perspective of yours is really uncorroborated and not supported by the Imams (as) themselves And undoubtedly these narrative have become playing tool into the hands of those who are seeking to raise doubts in Shia rituals. Furthermore, these jurist who have giving their decree on black clothing, have they brought about innovation into Shia Islam?
  4. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    The most notable distinguished Ullamas have not deemed black clothing during Muharram is "Disliked" moreover, they encourage it. Shia jurists have issued decrees recommending the act of putting on black clothes in mourning services 1. The author of Hadaiq 2. Allame Sayyid Mohammad Jafar Tabatabai Hairi 3. Allame Sheikh Mohammad Hussein Kazemeini, known as Muhaqiq Kazemi 4. Mirza Hussein Nuri, the writer of Mustadrak al-Wasail 5. Ayatollah al-Uzma Sistani 6. Ayatollah al-Uzma Jawad Tabrizi 7. Ayatollah al-Uzma Mar 'ashi Najafi 's last will
  5. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    Sure. But the fact is the noble women had worn black clothing during the events of Karbala Allame Sheikh Mohammad Hussein Kazemeini, known as Muhaqiq Kazimi Here is what he has written, وفى استثناء لبسه فى مأتم الحسين (عليه السلام) ونحوه وجهٌ غير بعيد كما فى حدائق لما دلّ على اظهار شعائر الحزن عليه (عليه السلام) ولما روى من لبس نساء بنى هاشم السواد ولم يغيّرنها فى حرّ او برد وكان زين العابدين (عليه السلام) يصنع لهن الطعام فى المأتم ولم ينكره (عليه السلام) عليهن. Wearing black in mourning for Imam Hussein (AS) is exceptional and it is unlikely to be prohibited. The exceptionality of the issue has been cited in Hadaiq. According to the narratives, there are two reasons for its exceptionality. One of them is the expression of sorrow for Imam Hussein (AS) and the other is the narrative about the Hashemite women who wore black in grief for that Imam. They didn’t even take off the black clothes in extreme heat and cold. Imam Zein al-‘Abedin (AS) was the one who prepared food for the mourners and never prevented them from doing so. Kazemeini, Mohammad Hussein (died in 1308 AH), Hidayat al-Anam fi Sharh Sharayi’ al-Islam, p. 454, published in Najaf, 1330 AH.

    Ayatollah al-Uzma Sistani, Ayatollah al-Uzma Mirza Jawad Tabrizi and Ayatollah al-Uzma Mar’ashi Najafi’s verdict are also inconclusive for you? if they are inconclusive then state why?
  7. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    Ayatollah al-Uzma Sistani The following question has been posed in Ayatollah al-Uzma Sistani’s Istiftaat (Replies to Inquiries about the Practical Laws of Islam), السؤال: ما هو رأيكم في لبس السواد في عزاء خامس أصحاب الكساء؟ الجواب: لبس السواد في عزاء سيد الشهداء [روحي فداه] أمر مطلوب. Question: What is your opinion about wearing black clothes in mourning for Imam Hussein (AS)? Answer: Wearing black clothes in mourning for Sayyid al-Shohada (AS) is a commendable act. Istiftaat (jurists’ decrees), al-Sayyid al-Sistani, p. 192. 6. Ayatollah al-Uzma Mirza Jawad Tabrizi سؤال: يرجى من سماحتكم بيان رأيكم في هذه المسألة التي أخذت منحى خطيرا في الكويت بعد مسألة مظلومية الزهراء عليه السلام والتي لا تخفى عليكم، والمسألة هي: ما هو رأيكم المبارك في لبس السواد، واللطم على الصدور أثناء إحياء مراسيم العزاء لسيد الشهداء عليه السلام في شهر محرم الحرام، ولباقي الأئمة الأطهار عليهم السلام؟ Question: Would you please voice your view concerning an issue which has been brought into the spotlight in Kuwait after the issue of Hazrat Zahra (AS)? The issue is black-wearing and chest-beating in mourning ceremonies held for Sayyid al-AShohada (AS) in the month of Muharram and for other Imams. جواب: لا إشكال ولا ريب ولا خلاف بين الشيعة الإمامية في أن اللطم ولبس السواد من شعائر أهل البيت عليهم السلام، ومن المصاديق الجلية للآية: ذلك ومن يعظم شعائر الله فإنها من تقوى القلوب. كما أنها من مظاهر الجزع الذي دلت النصوص الكثيرة على رجحانه في مصائب اهل البيت ومآتمهم. ومن يحاول تضعيف هذه الشعائر أو التقليل من أهميتها بين شباب الشيعة، فهو من الآثمين في حق أهل البيت عليهم السلام، ومن المسؤولين يوم القيامة عما اقترفه في تضليل الناس عن مظالم الأئمة عليهم السلام. ثبت الله المؤمنين على الإيمان والولاية. والله الهادي إلى سواء السبيل. Answer: beyond any doubt, there is no clash of ideas among the Shias about the fact that the rituals of wearing black clothes as well as beating chests is in line with the tradition of Ahl al-Bayt. They are in accordance with the Quranic verse which states, “Respecting the divine rites is a sign of piety.” Such rituals are the manifestations of mourning and grief for Ahl al-Bayt with a large number of narratives having approved them. Those who are trying to weaken and play down the importance of such rituals among Shia youths are, as a matter of fact, seeking to deal a blow to the Ahl al-Bayt. They would be definitely held responsible on the Day of Justice for misleading people about those who oppressed Ahl al-Bayt. This is God who keeps the believers firm over their faith and Ahl al-Bayt’s friendship. And He is the One who lead the people to the right path. Al-Sheikh al-Kurani al-‘Ameli, al-Intisar, vol. 9, p. 247; publication, Dar al-Sirat, Beirut, Lebanon, the first edition, 1422. 7. Ayatollah al-Uzma Mar’ashi Najafi’s will Here is what he has written in his last will, I want him [my son] to bury with me the black clothes which I used to wear in the months of Muharram and Safar in grief for the sufferings of the Holy Prophet’s household (peace be upon them).

    Now that i've drawn your attention of your 'Weak argument" i suggest that you pay a visit to this link: http://www.valiasr-aj.com/english/shownews.php?idnews=251#_ftnref16
  9. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    Your argument would've carried some weight, if you had categorically showed a narrative form the Imam (as) forbidding wearing black clothes during muharram. So, therefore with absent of a hadith forbidding wearing black clothes during muharram, your debate at this stage is very weak to say the least.
  10. What Happened?

    Actually is was revenge against Imam Ali (as) who had killed many of their families, this is what i heard in a lecture.

  12. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    Heres is a question for you; The Kaaba is covered in black cloth yes. Now, if wearing black is considered haraam according to you and your research, then why do we bow down to the great symbol in the universe which is covered in black?
  13. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    For centuries Shia scholars have used Sunni literature as proof against them, so sometimes yes we seek justification from their own source,
  14. Hadith on black clothes in Muharram

    I don't believe there was any condition or requirements as to where the information came from? I believe the article presented by Shiapen was mostly relevant to the topic. Whether the viewers want to agree or disagree, is their choice.
