  1. You may not believe on its "istehbab" but that doesn't make wearing black during mourning for Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) haram or even disliked. Otherwise please quote any single hadith.
  2. There are only two personalities whose uswah is mentioned as uswatun hasanah: 1. Prophet Ibrahim (عليه السلام) 2. Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) These two are infact two sides of one coin. How & why? Lets see the uswah of Prophet Ibrahim, what he was asking in his prayers: Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 129: رَبَّنَا وَابْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ Our Lord! And raise up in them an Apostle from among them who shall recite to them Thy communications and teach them the Book and the wisdom, and purify them; surely Thou art the Mighty, the Wise. (English - Shakir) You cannot in anyway, escape from knowing the commands & directives of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), because you have to obey him. How can you obey him when don’t even know his commands & directives?
  3. Whether anyone curse them or not, these personalities are cursed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) because of one simple & clear clause as mentioned in Qur'an: Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 42: وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ And do not mix up the truth with the falsehood, nor hide the truth while you know (it). (English - Shakir) I don't think anyone here would disagree with the fact that these three are the ones who have contaminated the truth and have concealed it too. So here is the result: Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 159: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْتُمُونَ مَا أَنزَلْنَا مِنَ الْبَيِّنَاتِ وَالْهُدَىٰ مِن بَعْدِ مَا بَيَّنَّاهُ لِلنَّاسِ فِي الْكِتَابِ أُولَٰئِكَ يَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّاعِنُونَ Surely those who conceal the clear proofs and the guidance that We revealed after We made it clear in the Book for men, these it is whom Allah shall curse, and those who curse shall curse them (too). (English - Shakir)
  4. Here are the evidences: Surah Al-Jumua, Verse 2: هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ He it is Who raised among the inhabitants of Mecca an Apostle from among themselves, who recites to them His communications and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and the Wisdom, although they were before certainly in clear error, (English - Shakir) Perhaps you may say that you don't really interested in learning wisdom, so here is another: Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 21: لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا Certainly you have in the Apostle of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much. (English - Shakir) Well, here too, it may be possible that you might not be interested in uswatun hasanah, so here is another: Surah An-Nisa, Verse 59: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلًا O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those in authority from among you; then if you quarrel about anything, refer it to Allah and the Apostle, if you believe in Allah and the last day; this is better and very good in the end. (English - Shakir) Right of obedience itself is a proof that every believer need to know the commands of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). How can one refer anything to Apostle if there is nothing from him? And obedience to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is upon whom? Lets now see what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has said about believers: Surah Yusuf, Verse 106: وَمَا يُؤْمِنُ أَكْثَرُهُم بِاللَّهِ إِلَّا وَهُم مُّشْرِكُونَ And most of them do not believe in Allah without associating others (with Him). (English - Shakir)
  5. This has came to my knowledge too. He was not alone in that case, I have heard the names of three scholars. I was shocked to listen that and thought how can these people occupy land waqf for Imam Bargah & Orphanage!!
  6. ہونٹ ہیں نوحہ کناں اور چشم گریہ زار ہیں سر برہنہ بیبیاں ہیں، عابد بیمار ہیں حلقہء اغیار، بے بس عطرت اطہار ہیں تازیانے شمر کے ہیں، راستے دشوار ہیں کیا کریں کس سے کہیں، سنتا نہیں کوئی یہاں غم نصیبوں کی زمیں ٹہری، نہ حامی آسماں
  7. @shuaybi Lets have a look at the ahadith one by one taken from your article: Amir Al-Momineen (عليه السلام) said in what he (عليه السلام) taught his (عليه السلام) companions: “Do not wear the black, for it is a clothing of Pharaoh” This hadith totally forbidding black clothings, now what happened next: Abu Abdullah (عليه السلام) has said: “Rasool-Allah (s) used to dislike the black (clothes) except in three – the amaamah (turban), the khuff (a type of light footwear or socks), and the kisaa (cloak)”. Why Imam Ali forgot to mention these exceptions? Lets see next now: I was in the presence of Abu Abdullah (عليه السلام), when a messenger of the Caliph Abu Al Abbas came over, calling him (عليه السلام). So he (عليه السلام) call for a rain coat of his (عليه السلام). One aspect of it was black, and the other was white. So he (عليه السلام) wore it. Then Abu Abdullah (عليه السلام) said: “But, I (عليه السلام) am (compelled to) wear it, and (although) I (عليه السلام) know that it is a dress of the inhabitants of the Fire” You really need to explain this tradition. Secondly, we don't like wearing black, we wear it in protest and we have been "compelled" to show our emotions against that great crime. Now lets see the last one: Jibraeel (عليه السلام) descended unto Rasool-Allah (s) wearing a black turban and a belt in which was a dagger. So Rasool-Allah (s) said to him: “O Jibraeel! What is this outfit?” He said: “This is an outfit of the sons of your (s) uncle Al-Abbas, O Muhammad (s)! Woe be unto the children of Al-Abbas as they will (kill) your (s) children”. So the Prophet (s) went out to Al-Abbas, so he (s) said: “O uncle! There would be harm to my (s) children from your children”. So he said, “O Rasool- Allah (s)! Shall I destroy myself?” He (s) said: “The Pen has dried up with was regards to it (meaning that the matter is ordained)”. This hadith perhaps mentioning the reason of his dislike but again he never forbade wearing black turban in the previous hadith. So after all this my brother, let it be left for Scholars to deduct or extrapolate the rulings from these complex & confusing ahadith.
  8. Mourning for Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) is a sunnah. That is alone sufficient. If we follow your line of thinking, that would mean tooth paste & tooth brush are bida'h, Spoon is bida'h etc. Why not you simply understand that cleaning of teeth is a sunnah? May one use "Miswak" or tooth brush, it doesn't matter. Black colour is a universally acceptable trend of showing protest against oppression & injustice, irrespective of any religion. The message of Karbala is not limited to Muslims only. Because mourning is a Sunnah. To adopt every mean to spread the message of Karbala and to adopt every mean to protest against the zulm is a commendable act. In non-Muslim countries, only the black dresses & matam are the signs that people are protesting against something. Otherwise people would think that these processions are some sort of festival. I don't know how you view those ahadith. They are allowing the use of black in turban, cloak, socks etc. Means they are particularly talking about Scholars because not every person wear turbans & cloaks. The way you are extrapolating meanings & directives from these ahadith would also mean that since wearing the dress of Arabs is a sunnah so every person has to quit his cultural/ traditional dressings.
  9. It is the Sunnah of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) that he expressed his grief on the news of martyrdom of Hussain (عليه السلام). Aam ul Huzn is also the sunnah of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Regarding with the colors which should we wear and which should not, there is no such thing in Qur'an and logically, it has nothing to do with religion. Otherwise, stop using Jets, Trains & Cars, start travelling on Camels & Horses because that is the Sunnah.
  10. "Innamal a'maalo bin-neeyaat" Why do we wear black dress on Muharrum only? Ohh, we must be trying to immitate Fir'on!!! Yes And no one knows what is in our heart!!!

    Actually Shia's are patients of self abuse disorder. You have every right to doubt on our mental health. We lack the skills how to express our sorrow and anger when it comes to martyrdom of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) Please feel free to call us "majnoon" or "deewana".

    The one using these terminologies:
  13. There were many who were not satisfied when Hazrat Madinatul ilm (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) was among them & explaining them, reciting before them "suhufan mutahharah". So my answer to this question would be same as his answer: "Wama ana alaikum behafeez" Surah Al-Anaam, Verse 104: قَدْ جَاءَكُم بَصَائِرُ مِن رَّبِّكُمْ فَمَنْ أَبْصَرَ فَلِنَفْسِهِ وَمَنْ عَمِيَ فَعَلَيْهَا وَمَا أَنَا عَلَيْكُم بِحَفِيظٍ Indeed there have come to you clear proofs from your Lord; whoever will therefore see, it is for his own soul and whoever will be blind, it shall be against himself and I am not a keeper over you. (English - Shakir)
  14. Anyone here knows what is the fiqhi definition of self harm?
