Universal Love (thread)

Recommended Posts

In every corner of the world you will find the Love of Imam Hussain. There isn't a single place on earth that doesn't mourn the tragedy of Karbala. Post rituals, pictures, videos  of how your culture, country or where you live commemorate the sacrifice of our beloved Imam (as)

This is my Motherland Mazar-i-sharif, Afghanistan. It is home to the 'shrine of Ali" (obvs not the actual one) which holds some of the biggest majalis in the whole of central asia, with people from all tribes, in an otherwise extremely segregated country, uniting in the love of the Ahlulbayt

Peshawar is a majority sunni city, however the Azadari there is as alive as ever. The beauty of it is that Hindus and Sikh of Peshawar are firm participaters in Muharram, coming to majalis and serving food to everyone in the name of Imam Hussain (as)

Parachinar is another place where i grew up. It is over 70 % shia, despite the numerous attacks that happen on us, every single year. There isn't a single household, including my own, who have not been oppressed and this increases particularly during Muharram. Nevertheless, Thousands come out every year for the processions that go on. The language of Parachinar is Pashto, and it is one of the only places in Pakistan where majalis is entirely recited in Pashto language

    • سبحان الله Salam Alaikum, oh brothers and sisters around the globe! Jazak Allah Khair! POEM: When a Believer was made visible to them, And he tells to those who may be guided about the true Submission, By the Lord of the Seven Heavens, Those are who reject the true Submission, Those to who the Heavens are shown, And they shall say: These are clouds on top of the other! Indeed, They shall not but make themselves useful, This is a reminder for those who may be guided.
    • I just want to recite few verses of Chapter 47 of Qur'an e Majeed: Surah Muhammad, Verse 25:
      إِنَّ الَّذِينَ ارْتَدُّوا عَلَىٰ أَدْبَارِهِم مِّن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الْهُدَى الشَّيْطَانُ سَوَّلَ لَهُمْ وَأَمْلَىٰ لَهُمْ Surely (as for) those who return on their backs after that guidance has become manifest to them, the Shaitan has made it a light matter to them; and He gives them respite.
      (English - Shakir) Surah Muhammad, Verse 26:
      ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا لِلَّذِينَ كَرِهُوا مَا نَزَّلَ اللَّهُ سَنُطِيعُكُمْ فِي بَعْضِ الْأَمْرِ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ إِسْرَارَهُمْ That is because they say to those who hate what Allah has revealed: We will obey you in some of the affairs; and Allah knows their secrets.
      (English - Shakir) Surah Muhammad, Verse 27:
      فَكَيْفَ إِذَا تَوَفَّتْهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ يَضْرِبُونَ وُجُوهَهُمْ وَأَدْبَارَهُمْ But how will it be when the angels cause them to die smiting their backs.
      (English - Shakir) Surah Muhammad, Verse 28:
      ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمُ اتَّبَعُوا مَا أَسْخَطَ اللَّهَ وَكَرِهُوا رِضْوَانَهُ فَأَحْبَطَ أَعْمَالَهُمْ That is because they follow what is displeasing to Allah and are averse to His pleasure, therefore He has made null their deeds.
      (English - Shakir)
    • He just wants to have a physical relationship with you. Is he your fiance? or are you planing to marry him?
    • Entire azadari is not an obligatory act of worship. Meaning there is nothing wajib in it.  Do whatever you can and do it with sincerity - that's all brother.
