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
