Shia Muslims

Here I want to introduce the pure beliefs of Shia Muslims, the second largest branch of Islam which we believe it is the correct interpretation of Islam. Shia take its religion from the Prophet Muhammad and his Ahle-Beyt which are 12 Imams: Ali, Hassan, Hussein and 9 descendants of Imam Hussain.
The last Imam, Mahdi(AS) is still alive, but hidden. We expect him to be appeared in the near future Insha-Allah

Every year, at the first Friday of Muharram, Shia Muslims commemorate the Global day of Ali Asghar (AS). Yesterday was the first Friday of Muharram and Iranian Shia as well as other Shia throughout the world, marked this international day. 
Abdullah Ali al-Asghar ibn Husayn or simply Ali Asghar (d. 10 Muharram 61 AH (10 October 680 CE)) was the youngest child of Imam Hussein ibn Ali (grandson of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and the third Shia Imam) and Rubab (daughter of the chief of the Kinda Imra al-Qays tribe). The six month old Ali Asghar was killed during the Battle of Karbala and is commemorated in Shia as the "personified quintessence of the innocent victim". 
The following are some photos from the Global day of Ali Asghar in Iran during Muharram 2016.

Ashura in Google

Every time I look at Google for the word Ashura or Ashoora, I see lots of bloody photos of people who are flagellating themselves with chains of blades, sword, knife or other sharp metal things! Now the question is that:

Is Self Flagellation in Ashura Legal in Shia Religion?

Is this the truth about Shia and Ashura? That means do all the Shia Muslims flagellate themselves during Ashura? It seems so crazy and unbelievable, since I am a Shia Muslim and I never did it and never see somebody flagellate himself during Ashura in our Shia cities during my life! So why Google shows these Images in its first page and why it never filters them while they contain violent and rough images.
Answer is so clear. Google doesn't like Shia thoughts to be spread throughout the world. Google is under supervision of Zionists and it is not acceptable for them that Shia, the religion of resistance and the true enemies of Israel (e.g. Hizbullah, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Iraq) have a good face in Google results! So it shows images of Hindu men that believe in No Pain, No Gain and mutilate themselves in Muharram procession!
Self-flagellation is forbidden in Shia during Ashura
Most of those people flagellating themselves are Hindu, not Shia. Self-flagellation is forbidden in Shia according to Fatwas of their grand Ayatollahs like Imam Khamenei and Aytullah Sistani (http://Tatbir.org )

Why Ashura Happened

What is the reason of Imam Hussein revolution?

Shia Truth: reason of Imam Hussein's uprising against Yazid - Ashura Truth

Imam Hussein (as) introduced some reasons of his uprising in a testament letter to his brother Muhammad Hanafiah:

I did not come out seeking to do evil, nor seeking to have fun, nor seeking corruption nor oppression. Rather, I came out seeking reform in the nation of my Grandfather. I want to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.

Another Muharram (2015) came to us and thanks Allah for that we can again mourn for Imam Hussein (as) and his oppressed companions. May Allah accept our Azadari and write our names in list of lovers of the AhleBayt of the prophet.

Hadith of Prophet(pbuh) about Imam Hussein(as)
The prophet (PBUH) looked Hussein (as) while he was in front of him, so he sat on his knee and said: Verily the killing of Hussein makes a fire in the hearts of believers that never shuts down.

Arbaeen, the 40th day after martyrdom of Imam Hussein in 61 AH, is so near and currently millions of pilgrims are walking towards Hussein for Arbaeen 2014. It's not the Muslim Hajj, or the Hindu Kumbh Mela.. Known as Arbaeen, it is the world's most populous gathering and you've probably never heard of it! Not only does the congregation exceed the number of visitors to Mecca (by a factor of five, in fact), it is more significant than Kumbh Mela, since the latter is only held every third year. In short, Arbaeen dwarfs every other rally on the planet, reaching  twenty million last year. That is a staggering %60 of Iraq's entire population, and it is growing year after year.
I am ready to visit the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) in Karbala for the first time, After Saddam, every year the world's biggest pilgrimage takes place in Arbaeen.
Insha Allah. I recommend you listening this song to find the atmosphere of Iraq in the days before Arbaeen.





Welcome dear walker pilgrims, I will register your names and help you later in the day of Judgement. So welcome my pilgrims.

Today is the day of martyrdom of Roghayya, the little girl of Imam Hussein (AS). She and other captives of the battle of Karbala in Ashura were in a house (like a prison) near the Yazid palace. She was crying so hard. Companions of Yazid take head of Imam Hussein for her to be calmed down. But she embraced head of her father and psalmed with him. She cried and cried until she dead.

Today after about 1400 years the largest Nazri food table was provided in the city of Qom in memory of Seyyeda Roghayeh :

This series is based on Mukhtar Al-Thaqafi who was an early Islamic revolutionary who led an uprising against the Bani-Umayyah Caliphs (60s AH or 670s AD). During the battle of Karbala, Mukhtar was in the prison of Ibne-Ziad. A few years later, he gathered his companions and decided to take vengeance for the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS). He killed almost all of the important people, participated in the battle of Karbala against Imam Hussayn (AS). Finally he took the leadership of Kufah for a short time. He was the Arab hero who could overcome the events and lead the greatest social revolt. He adopted political and social justice, and accomplished equal opportunities among the people, regardless of their nations and religions.
