Just found this out today, about this Urdu Noha:

 

was written by a Hindu:

Quote

The famous dirge (Noha) ‘Ghabraaey gi Zainab’ was written by a Hindu poet Munshi Channulal Dilgeer. Munshi Channulal Dilgeer lived before Anees and also penned 417 marsias. ‘Ghabraaey gi Zainab’ used to be recited in Lucknow since long, especially on ‘Shaam e Gharibaa’n,’ but in a quick momentum.
When Nasir Jahan first recited it on radio in 1956, he changed the delivery to a slow rendition that became highly appreciated and widely emulated.

I wanna recite a noha in my Shia community, but think that I'll get nervous. I've never recited it before.

Can someone give me an advice! How can I manage my nerves? What if my voice cracks? 

I really wanna recite one!

I have no idea what reciting a noha actually means, but it sounds pretty much like public speaking.

Be glad you weren't given a date and time to stand in front of a community and give your personal testimony, (sinner to saved), in an event detailed 10 minute (eternity), speech meant to impress and inspire listeners of all ages, races, backgrounds, peers, on and on. You have it easy.

I guess the first question is, why? 

Is it personal training, (something everyone your age does), an achievement, a goal, a first step to your goal? 

The bigger question, does it honour God or does it promote you? The only answer to that question is to honour God and that must be your focus.

Personal feelings aside. Go make that date and time.

It is recitation of devotional or storytelling poetry.

They will love it even if your voice sounds bad as long as its genuine inshaAllah.

Just now, Husayni said:

I wonder how idiotic we look to Ahlul Barzakh (the people of barzakh) right now, chasing and going after this temporary world.
(not directly implied to anyone, just a general statement)

Alhamdulillah weshokorr that you are thinking of your akhira. Most people don't do that.

Hi Noha means that we recite poem with grief for feeling of passionate about fate of our Imams (as) specially for imam Hussain (as) martyrdom ,that can be with melodic rhythm sometimes.

This Marsiya is still recited at many places on Shabe Ashur and Shaame Gariba. Each and every couplet is heart-wrenching. Masterpiece indeed.

The clothing of a woman depicts her upbringing by her father, the sense of honour (ghayrah) of her brother, the manliness of  her husband, her keenness to emulate her mother and above all, her conciousness of Allah watching her.

This is why they said to Maryam (as):

_O sister of Haaroon, your father was not an evil man and your mother was not a loose woman -19:28 (Quran )

They reminded her of her brother, father and mother. If these people are upright, she will also be upright.

A pious person said, "Revealing clothes on a woman is a sign that Allah is angry with her, as He removed the clothing of Adam and Hawwaa (as) when He was displeased with them."

A young girl says, "When I see a young female exposing and revealing herself, I look at her parents and think of the verse:

"Stop them, indeed they will be questioned" This causes me to have even more modesty so that my mother should not be questioned."

Most of that which Allah made impermissible in this world will be allowed in Jannah, e.g. wine. One thing that is not allowed here and there is nakedness.

In fact, a great bounty [of Jannah] is to be properly covered. Describing Jannah, Allah says:

You will not be hungry in it [Jannah] nor will you be exposed to sun (unclothed)-  20:119-120

 

One of the most beautiful messages I have read regarding modesty.

I wrote a comment on a Guardian article and got 50 likes. Someone else replied to my comment, agreeing with me but with a more extreme version of the same point gets 100 liikes.

OK it's only likes.

Still irritating though.

But do the people who influence policy "like" what you have to say? And do the people whose opinions matter to you? 

But then, I admit I'm baffled by the fact that I even have Twitter followers, so obviously I'm clueless.
