Religious Status of Matam and Zanjeer Zani

Recommended Posts

Salam Momineen, 

Here is a question in my mind, that whats the actual religious status of Matam (beating chest and head) in the Islam ? .. Is it Farz, Wajib, Mustahab or what ? ... and what if a person, attends Majalis regularly and do not offer Matam, then in this case, is he / she committing a sin ? ... 

Jazak Allah

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.

    • Salam. If you have one year before you start your Masters degree program, then there is no need to leave your family to go study Islam. Stay with your family and do as much independent study about Islam as you can. Do research on your own by reading and studying. After you achieve your Masters degree, inShaAllah you can take a break and reassess your situation to decide whether you want to take hawzah classes or other educational opportunities or if you need to work to pay off debts for yourself or your family.
