When I say 'You', I refer to everyone on this forum - regardless of the beliefs they choose to subscribe to or lack of belief - as an individual. The Event of Ashura manifests universality, a story that everyone can emotively relate to through the confines of their own perspectives and can, more or less, trigger some sort of realization in all of us and considerably alter our outlook of this life and reinvigorate it with lofty notion, ideals and goals. How does this concern non-theists? How does it pertain to them? Because a variety of universal human rights were desecrated on that day. Most atheists or agnostics are humanists, even if they don't call themselves as such, especially the ones on this forum. I want such non-theists to share what the uprising in the event of Kerbala means to them and perhaps what they learn from it, from a non-theological perspective. For example, Gandhi learnt from Imam Hussein (a) how to be victorious whilst oppressed. How does Kerbala inspire you? How does Kerbala enlighten you? What does Kerbala teach you as an individual? I don't want an obvious response. Think. What does it philosophically mean to you? What philosophical teachings can you gain from it? Discuss how you extracted these thoughts from the profound event. ------ Extra Question:- What do the tragic events that transpired after Ashura, namely Arbaeen, teach you as an individual? ------ There is another reason as to why I opened this thread. You see, I have heard scholars say that the amount of moral values and philosophical teachings that can be discovered from the event of Kerbala is inexhaustible. Perhaps it is meant metaphorically, but I want to test this claim.
