Durood va Salam

I'm muslim Iranian but born in Holland so I don't have studied Islam like others did there. But I still want to get all the knowledge they have there.

I really love Ashura and Chehelom but, I wonder if there's any hadith for mourning in Moharram?

If you don't altough thanks for reading :)

Here are a few that are specific to Ashura to get you started (although there are a lot more and I recommend you check the link ^ out)

Imam Reza (A.S.) said:

The one for whom the day of A'shura is a day of tragedy, grief and weeping, Allah The Mighty, The Glorious, shall make the Day of Judgment, a day of joy and happiness for him.

Bihar al-Anwar, vol,: 44,pg: 2

Imam Reza (A.S.) said:

With the advent of the month of Muharram, my father Imam Kazim (A.S.) would never be seen laughing; gloom and sadness would overcome him for (the first) ten days of the month; and when the tenth day of the month would dawn, it would be a day of tragedy, grief and weeping for him.

Amaali Saduq, pg,:111

Mourning in the Houses

For those unable to go for the ziarat of Imam Husain (A.S.) on the day of A'shura, Imam Baqir (A.S.) mentions the manner of performing A'zadari as follows: He should mourn over Husain (A.S.), weep for him and instruct the members of the house to weep for him. He should establish the mourning ceremony in the house by exhibiting lamentions and grief over him; the people should meet one another in their homes and offer condolences and consolations to each other over the calamities which befell him. Kaamil al-Ziyaraat, Pg.: 175.

Imam Sadiq (A.S.) on Day of Ashura

A'bdullah Ibn Sinaan says:

I arrived in the presence of my master, Imam Sadiq (A.S.) on the day of Ashura and found him pale and grief-stricken, with tears streaming from his eyes like falling pearls.

Musadrak al-wasail,vol.6, pg. 279.

This is a very famous narration. When Imam Hussain (asws) came into this world and

RasoolAllah (saw) heard the news, He went to Syeda (sa) with tears streaming from His eyes.

Syeda (sa) asked,

“Father, are you not happy by the birth of Your Grandson (asws)?

RasoolAllah (saw) said, “My Beloved Daughter (sa), who can be more joyful than Me?

I shed tears because My ummah (nation) will martyr My Grandson while He is thirsty on the

plains the Karbala.”

Syeda (sa) asked “Oh Father, will You be present at that time?”

RasoolAllah (saw) replied, “No, My Beloved Daughter (sa), I will not be in this world.”

Syeda (sa) asked, “Will Ali (asws) be present?”

RasoolAllah (saw) replied, “No, My Beloved Daughter (sa), Ali (asws) will not be present at that


Then Syeda (sa) asked, “Will Hasan (asws) be present there?”

RasoolAllah (saw) replied, “No, My Beloved Daughter (sa), Hasan (asws) will also not be

present there.”

Then Syeda (sa) asked, “Will I be present at that time?”

RasoolAllah (saw) replied, “No, My Beloved Daughter (sa), You will also not be present there.”

Upon hearing this, the heart of Syeda (sa) shattered with grief. Syeda (sa) asked Her Father,

“Oh Father, then who will mourn My Hussain (asws)?”

RasoolAllah (saw) said, “Allah will create a nation whose elders will mourn over the elders of

Hussain (asws). Their youth will cry on the youth of Hussain (asws). Their women will cry for the

women of Hussain (asws). Their children will cry for the children of Hussain (asws).”

Upon hearing this, Syeda (sa) became joyous, and said, “Then I promise I will not enter into

jannah until every mourner of My Hussain (asws) has entered into the jannah.”
