This is a nice, informative and well referenced blog about azadari practices in India and adjoining countries http://vsgoi.blogspot.in/ Tazia, the most important icon of Muharram ceremonies, is also an example of a unique craft with deep roots in the historical and cultural milieu of India. Prepared as a replica of Imam Hussain’s shrine at Karbala, thousands of tazias in various shapes and sizes are taken out as an integral part of Muharram processions. History behind The word "tazia" is a derivative of an Arabic word "taziat" meaning 'condolence.' According to Hollister 'the custom of carrying these models of Hussain's tomb is said to date from the time of Timur (d. 808 A.H./1405 A.D.), who brought such a miniature tomb back from Karbala, later called the tazia.' Scholars agree on the origin of the tazia rituals in India, but differ on whether Timur had the zarih (the miniature model) built on order, or had it brought from Karbala. The practice and rituals of commemorating the tragedy of Karbala spread with the expansion of Islam in India. As the people adopted Islam and started to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam and his companions at Karbala, they established their own traditions of azadari (performances of all the Muharram rituals in general in which taziadari is one of the most significant aspects ) according to their diverse cultures.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un laayee hayaat aaye, kazaa le chali chaley, apni khushi na aaye, na apni khushi chaley. ~ Zauq (The life brought me so I came; the death takes me away so I go) (Neither I came on my will, nor I go on my will) Salam, Its common that only shia news of the Middle East / Pakistan is shared on international Platform. Hence im sharing the News of the demise of an eminent shia scholar of Indo Pak Region, Syed Mohammad Shakir Naqvi Amrohvi (ra). Who passed away this Wednesday, July 4th 2012. He taught Philosophy, logic and jurisprudence at Madarsa Nazmia (the oldest shia madarsa in sub continent ) Note: the so called Jafaria world Shia Platform didnt publish anything on him. But local / national media did. http://www.mumbaishi...akir-naqvi.html "Maulana Shakir Naqvi, an 84-year-old religious scholar passed away today at about 11.00 AM in Lucknow. He will be buried in his hometown, Amroha. He served at Nazmia Arabic College, Lucknow as a teacher and was one of the most respected ustad in Hawzaat of India. Many of his books have been published in Arabic and have been praised by scholars of Iran and Iraq. He has also translated many Arabic and Persian books into Urdu. Born in Amroha, he lead a simple and secluded life and spent most of his time writing and hence he was not so famous as are the orators of the Shi'a community. " another article on him frm 2011 "Lucknow: Maulana Shakir Naqvi, an 84-year-old religious scholar, was honoured with the Sayyidah Zainab Award by Anjuman Ghulaman-e Sayyidah Zainab at a meeting held here on 1 August. The meeting was chaired by Maulana Kalbe Jawad. Maulana Shakir Naqvi is associated with Madrasa Nazimia and he has been writing on different topics for the past 50 years. Many of his books have been published in Arabic and have been praised by scholars of Iran and Iraq. He has also translated many Arabic and Persian books into Urdu. Born in Amroha, he leads a simple and secluded life and spends most of his time writing and hence he is not so famous as are the orators of the Shi'a community. It was not easy for the Anjuman people to persuade him to come out of his secluded life and accept the honour at a public function. It was for the first time that a function (of award giving) was held to honour a religious scholar. Dr. Kalbe Sadiq congratulated those people who had organised this function to honour a molvi. Maulana Kalbe Jawad said that our community is accused of honouring and mourning the dead but this function negates this accusation because this function is held to honour a living religious personality. He said that an hour's discussion and consideration of religious problems by a religious scholar is better than 70 years prayers by an ordinary person. He said that namaz, fasting, Haj etc. are performed by people for their own salvation but a religious scholar does all this for the salvation of the entire humanity and it is for this reason that such a person is considered in Islam a superior person.
