Wallah where have these 10 days gone 

:'(  of course it is still muharram, but the feeling of mourning for nothing but Aba Abdillah and going to Majalis can never ever be replaced. Does anyone feel the same?

I feel like Muharram has changed me. I feel similar.

It really does. It is as if the tears have washed away all of the sins that have blackened our souls.

YES! that is actually the result of crying for Husayn(as). If you cry for him it reduces the burden of great sins. It feels easier to avoid sins. I can lower my gaze so easily.

That's so true. The first 10 days can never be compared to the rest of the month.

I miss the first 10 days so bad. I wish I could go back in time :(

It was so refreshing to go to majlisis and see fellow moimins commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussein(as).

We can all listen to lectures at home, but going to majlisis is just special.

It seems to fly by every year and will continue to do so but the main thing is that we are able to achieve that spiritual closeness to the ahlulbayt (a.s) through our mourning for what happened.

Before we know it the entire mourning period (as in Muharam and safar both) will be over too. Ya Allah, may we be able to see next year as well, and remain followers of imam-e-mazloom every year, ameen❤

i needed to ask you that is majlis for the first 10 days only or it lasts for the whole month? im sunni that's why im asking.

Majalis takes olace pretty much throughout muharram and safr, however they are more prominent during the first 10 days

Brothers and sisters,

Muharram does not end on Ashura. The real trial and tribulations of the Ahlul-Bayt begin from Sham-e-gharibaan onwards.

Someone asked Imam Sajjad (as) why he would cry so much when "martyrdom was his inheritance". He responded that indeed martyrdom was his inheritance, but being imprisoned with the womenfolk of the House of the Prophet (saw) was not.

In another instance, someone asked Imam Sajjad (as) about the most difficult part of the whole ordeal. "Ash-Shaam, Ash-Shaam, Ash-Shaam" was his response.

    • 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.
