Ziyarat Ashura

Recommended Posts

Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim

Salamu Alaikum!

My arabic is very poor and that is something I feel like I'd like to work on. Arabic is NOT easy for me at all. 

But I very much want to say Ziyarat Ashura. Can I say this in English until my Arabic improves?

Shukran. 

Salamu Alaikum!

Wa Alaikum Assalam.

I don't know if you can say it in English, maybe someone else can address that. Now I want to say is that my Arabic isn't all that great either, what I'd like to suggest is that you read the transliteration of Ziyarat Ashura (which is available online) along with Arabic. I keep moving from transliteration and Arabic words if I face difficulty.

Another thing that works for me is that I read arabic in small parts, in short pauses. If you do that you will Insha'Allah get better with time.

Remember to be patient with it. With difficulty comes ease. Do not rush. Maybe you could try to read Ziyarat Ashura everyday. That way you can slowly get better in reading its words. Insha'Allah. :) 

Sincerely,
Zavon.

    • Because your god(self/mind) keeps reminding you of its limits. It keeps you in search of "there is no god, but The God".  
    • As far as I know, in that time Arabs didnt have books similar to the ones we have nowadays. There were not even enough papers so sometimes they wrote on animals' skin and sometimes just used their memory. So kitab can mean something written.
    • Is it true that isis soldiers even killed babies?
    • Remove "knowledge" & "power" from the scene.
    • If you mean about Moses speaking to God (which I probably think this was the story, though never knew the bush was not consumed), then it was a miracle. A miracle is : An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. That is what we call "Tawaqqu' al-mustaqbal" predicting the future, and it is haram/Forbidden to do, and the nice thing is they mostly don't work, unless it was a "wild" guess, as some call it. Though the Prophet (sawa) once predicted future events more than 1 time, and all of them came true, you interested? Again, if the "angels"(which I think you mean) were to appear they wouldn't appear from their own will, God wants them to appear. Again, God is: the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. So God can basically break the laws, which he himself created, when he wants, as they don't apply to him.   Though angels in Islam aren't the winged angels, they are some sort of "Spirits" of  unknown nature. The word "Mala'ika" means the "heavenly" ones, or the ones who always obey. So again not the winges creatures like the Christian/Jewish thoughts. Though they could possibly lift themselves through the means/ways of aerodynamics. Only God knows.   This one happened, I think it was by Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a), he basically puts the amputated part, on the other, and joins them together.  I have seen the name "Allah" once through a cloud, not sure if it is going to help though. Well, it is pretty hard to do so.
