Saudi Shiites Prepare for Ashura Season

Date: 2012/11/17

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - In Ashura season, Shiite religious speakers in different regions of Saudi Arabia prepare many programs, and deliver various lectures to educate the society in different fields whether religious, moral, economic, scientific or related to human rights issues.Shiites in different Saudi regions work for weeks before the beginning of Ashura season in Muharram. During this season, all people of different ages cooperate together and volunteer in everything; some of them offer beverages and serve food while others organize and prepare for various programs.Many educational and intellectual programs for both adults and children accompany the season of Ashura. There are health corners, art, calligraphy and photography exhibitions and blood donation units.Plays over what had happened in Karbala are, also, common and presented in different regions whether in open squares or on stages inside installed camps. These plays, which are always attended by a large number of people, are presented in the tenth day of Muharram of every year and are locally prepared from the scratch.In general, the interaction with such programs is remarkable which reflects the level of Shiites’ cultural awareness.

Unfortunately I don't think this is available for download or online viewing yet. I watched part of it, it seems really nice. For those who cannot understand farsi, it is a documentary entitled "from the blood of John" and is about ashura in Nigeria.

    • Man I translated that badly apperently but do you know who this imam is? Who is he?
    • I just have one question, at this stage: Do Shias believe that their Imams are infallible?
    • What would they do? Send him to prison? Then what? He’ll just divorce my mum and leave. Mum doesn’t work. She’s never worked as she’s a housewife. How would she support our big family. And what ever happens, he remains my father. Prophet Ibrahim still loved and pleaded with Azar even though he wasn’t his biological father so how do you expect me to report him? And if I did, the long court processes and the money difficulties would be too much, how could I bear this while still going to school. I see school as more important than reporting MY father because regardless of anything, at least he still keeps a roof on top of my head. And won’t this be unfair for my siblings who love him as he never hurt them. They won’t understand why I would do that, but they still love him.
    • Here we go again. Because of unfortunately misguided thoughts and assumptions, the discussion/conversation has descended into name calling and insults.  Shias who readily insult, curse and malign others are unfortunately the most cowardly of Our Shia. Ask them to defend innocent Shia being slaughtered by wahabis in Parichinar, Yemen, Syria or Iraq and they have the most convenient excuses. They personify the arrogance of Shaytan towards Adam because of self righteous over inflation of their egos. Humility is a term not native to their vocabulary. Akhlaq, manners, respect, controlling anger, showing others the errors of their ways thru peace and kindness, these are the true legacies of Our Imams. By all means my dear brothers demonstrate your True Nobilty thru Ahlul Bayt like actions, OR alternatively make the Ziosaudis happy and become Shaytan like and show how humans can be described in Sura AT Teen :SUMA RADADNAHO AS FALA SAFEY LEEEN.
