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.”

    • 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.
