MUHARRAM ? Do you know about........

The Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) said: He is not one of us who strikes his cheeks, rends his garment, or cries with the cry of the Jaahiliyyah.” [l-Bukhaari (1294) and Muslim (103)]

Whether Shi’a or Sunni or whoever they may be ------
What some people do in ‘Muharram’ is…..Mourning… Beating their chest, slapping their cheeks, striking their shoulders with chains and cutting their heads with swords to let the blood flow….having big gatherings where they encourage people to do these acts and filling their heart with hatred……Thinking that Muharram is the month of Mourning….
These are all innovations that have no basis in Islam.

These things are evils that were forbidden by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), who did not prescribe for his ummah to do any of these things or anything similar to them to mark the death of a leader or the loss of a martyr, no matter what his status is. 

During lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) a number of senior Sahaabah were martyred and he mourned their loss, such as
Hamzah ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib(his uncle), Ja’far ibn Abi Taalib and ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Rawaahah, but he did not do any of the things that people do today.
If it was good, Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) would have done it before us.  What are people trying to say that “they are better than Muhammad (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) by doing invention in the Deen ?? in actual it’s innovation (Bid’ah) which leads to destruction. Coz Islam is complete and whoever invents something new, it will be rejected.

“The Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) stated repeatedly that: "Every newly-invented thing is a bid'ah (innovation), every bid'ah is a going astray, and every going astray will be in the Fire." [Sunan-Nasai]

Shocking part is that even many educated men & women; also get involved in this evil activity ….. they also mourn and beat them selves scratch their hair like animals. People have forgot the teaching of Muhammad (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) who saidIt is not permitted for a woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to mourn for any dead person for more than three days, except for a husband, (in which case the period of mourning is) four months and ten days. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4926).
And those three days mourning also does not include the acts of jaahiliya (ignorance) such as tearng clothes beating their chest hitting their head etc.

The question arises, did Hussain (may Allah be pleased with him) ask us to mourn or beat ourselves? He lost his beloved Grand father Muhammad (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam)did he do such things? He lost his Father Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) did he do such things? The answer is “NO”
Then if people claim to love Hussain (may Allah be pleased with him) then why aren’t they following him ???

These are reprehensible actions that people do in Muharram which has no basis in Islam. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did not do them, nor did any of his companions. None of his companions did them when he or anyone else died; although the loss of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was greater than the death of Hussain (may Allaah be pleased with him). 

His father was better than him and he was killed, but people do not take his death as an anniversary as they do with the death of Hussain

 His father (may Allaah be pleased with him) was killed on a Friday as he was leaving the mosque after Fajr prayer, on the seventeenth of Ramadaan in 40 AH. 

‘Uthmaan (may Allaah be pleased with him) was killed when he was besieged in his house during the days of al-Tashreeq in Dhu’l-Hijjah of 36 AH, with his throat cut from one jugular vein to the other, but people did not take his death as an anniversary. 

‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him). was killed as he was standing in the mihraab, praying Fajr and reciting Qur’aan, but the people did not take his death as an anniversary. (may Allaah be pleased with him). 

Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq – the first Caliph of Islam….when he died, people don’t even take his death as an anniversary.

These were the closest companions and the rightly guided caliphs of Islam…..why don’t people mourn or beat themselves on their death-dates?? 

‘Ali ibn al-Husayn narrated from his grandfather the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who said:
“There is no Muslim who is afflicted by a calamity and when he remembers it, even if it was in the dim and distant past, he says Inna Lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon (verily to Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return), but Allaah will give him a reward like that of the day when it befell him.”  [Musnad Ahmad and Ibn Majaah]

>>> There was much trouble and fighting between these two groups in Kufa. When al-Husayn (may Allaah be pleased with them both) was killed on the day of ‘Aashooraa’. Allah honoured al-Husayn with martyrdom, as He honoured other members of his family, and raised his status, as He honoured Hamzah, Ja’far, his father ‘Ali and others. Al-Husayn and his brother al-Hasan are the leaders of the youth of Paradise. 

High status can only be attained through suffering, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him said, when he was asked which people suffer the most.
He said, “The Prophets, then righteous people, then the next best and the next best. A man will suffer according to his level of faith. If his faith is solid, he will suffer more, but if his faith is shaky, he will suffer less. The believer will keep on suffering until he walks on the earth with no sin.” (reported by al-Tirmidhi and others).
Al-Hasan and al-Husayn achieved what they achieved and reached the high status they reached by the help and decree of Allah. They did not suffer as much as their forefathers had, for they were born and raised during the glory days of Islam, and the Muslims respected and honored them. The Prophet (peace and blessings ofAllaah be upon him) died when they were still young, and Allah blessed them by testing them in such a manner that they would be able to catch up with the rest of their family members, as those who were of a higher status than them were also tested. ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib was better than them, and he was killed as a shaheed (martyr).
It  is reported from Faatimah bint al-Husayn, from her father al-Husayn, that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said“There is no man who suffers a calamity, and when he remembers it, even if it is old, he says ‘Innaa Lillaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji’oon (Truly, to Allaah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return),’ but Allah will give a reward equal to the reward He gave him on the day he suffered the calamity.”
This is how Allah honours the Believers. If the disaster suffered by al-Husayn, and other disasters, are mentioned after all this time, we should say “Innaa Lillaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji’oon (Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return),” as Allah and His Messenger commanded, so as to be given the reward like that earned on the day of the disaster itself.
If Allah commanded us to be patient and steadfast and to seek reward at the time of the disaster, then how about after the passing of time?
The Shaytaan made this attractive to those who are misled, so they took the month of Muharram as a month of mourning, when they grieve and wail, recite poems of grief and tell stories filled with lies..fabricated filled with deceit…. Whatever truth there may be in these stories serves no purpose other than….. the renewal of their grief and sectarian feeling, and the stirring up of hatred and hostility among the Muslims, which they do by cursing those who came before them, and telling many lies, and causing much trouble in the world.
The religion of Islam is easy
We should worship Him in the manner that He has prescribed, not by means of bid’ah or reprehensible innovations.
Allah says “… So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.” [Surah-Kahf 18:110].
Righteous deeds are those which are loved by Allah and His Messenger, those which are prescribed in Islam and in the Sunnah.
Therefore one has to abstain from doing such evil acts which neither Allah nor his Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) prescribed. In fact these things are haraam in Islam.



  1. Finally, a word of truth! Thank you brother for sharing this article with us and may Allah (subaha wa taala) bless you.

  2. Please, correct the spelling mistake in the second-last line.

  3. Assalaamoualaikoum!!!

    It is definitely forbidden to mourn and do these barbarism acts and is not a Sunna of our Pyare Rassoul (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

    But where Mr Zakir is wrong, there is nothing forbidden Bid'ah in telling stories about what happened in the past as the act is explaining what has happened and not the story in itself which Mr Zakir does not feel good to listen for his personal reason. We muslims should definitely know what sacrifice the Ahle Bait has done for Islam. Mr Zakhir should rather tell us the true detailed story about the event if he thinks he knows better. ALLAH Knows best.

    Mr Zakhir who is taking the liberty to tell that the Sunnis are doing evil acts, associating others with Allah (Shirk), then dear Sir, despite these allegations, all other Aqeedas are still performing salaat behind the Sunni Imaams. IS IT CORRECT TO PERFORM SALAAT BEHIND SOMEONE DOING SHIRK???

    May Our Pyare Habeeb (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)guide us in the right path to go to Allah Subhanahou Taalah.

    PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM) had all ready showed us the right path n now it is our responsibility to follow His teachings to achieve the Pleasure of ALLAAH SUBHANAUWATALA n Shifahat of MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM).
    As far as Dr. Zakir is concerned,he has done his job by spreading the true message of Islam with Qur'an n authentic Ahadith, if a Imam is doing shirk n we are 100% sure about it so we are not suppose to pray behind him.
    Now the allegations posed by Dr.Zakir are not just opinions but they are proven if we watch his lectures carefully, listen to them n testify the references.

    I think Dr.Zakir is doing a very good job by not discussing on the event of Karbala as it can cause so much Fitnah between the Muslim Ummah.

    The event of Karbala which is narrated by many people in the form of novel writing is man-made but not real because if it was real how would they know it, even if i agree with them for the sake of argument that the Bibis were watching from the camps (which i guess must be very far from the battlefield) so how could they narrate the conversations in the battlefield or read there mind.


  6. i love allah swt and we all muslims in the world will follow prophet mohammed (peace be upon him....)and thanks to dr zakir naik....may allah give him rewards..ameen....

  7. @imulbocus - Assalamualaikum.. the scenario what happened at karbala was painfull but there are plenty of wars that took place and plenty of muslims of higher degree than compare to hussain and hasan died do we mourn for them no, and on karbala every one of a muslim has a different opinion and these are very sensitive matters so what you need to understand is how that wise man is trying to unite us and secondly instead of worshiping hussain and crying for him why dont u read quran and cry for Allah atleast that will take you to jannah. try to understand things instead of criticizing dr zakir naik 1st understand him and then come up with an opinion dont debate but share. Assalamualaikum.

  8. My answer to the illiterates here::

  9. We cry for Hussain (AS) …So did the Prophet of Islam (S)

    Every year, Muslims around the world commemorate the tragedy of Karbala. They attend mourning meetings and processions in which the story of Karbala is retold, lamentations are held and special poetic readers using dramatic techniques and symbolism recite eulogies to mark the events of the day of Ashura. All these commemorative meetings not only serve to convey the events and message of Karbala but also provide opportunities for us to learn about Islam in general.

    We commemorate Ashura’ to symbolise and express our grief and emotions towards the martyrdom of Imam al-Hussain (AS), to keep Imam al-Hussain’s (AS) cause alive in our hearts and to be committed to his cause. Also, we want to extract lessons from the tragedy of Karbala and apply them to our daily lives. We want to pay our condolences to the Holy Prophet (S) and the Ahlul Bayt (AS). You might then ask why we do not commemorate the death of the Holy Prophet (S) who has a much higher rank than Imam al-Hussain (AS). The answer to this is that although we do commemorate and mourn the death of the Holy Prophet (S), it is the way and circumstance in which Imam al-Hussain (AS) was martyred which makes all the difference, the fact that he was martyred for refusing a government headed by the wretched Yazid, who drank, gambled and indulged in many corrupt practices, the fact that those who savagely slaughtered Imam al-Hussain (AS) called themselves Muslims is what makes us mourn and lament his martyrdom the way we do.

    Imagine, it is afternoon on the day of Ashura’. Imam al-Hussain (AS) is standing on the blood-drenched soil of Karbala in the heat of the scorching sun awaiting to meet his beloved. His head is wounded and blood is streaming slowly down his holy face soaking his blessed beard. He looks around, searching for members of his family and his companions, only to find them brutally slaughtered and slain like sacrificial lambs, lying there on the ground soaked in blood. He hears the innocent crying and wailing of the children and the women. Tears flow down his holy face. He takes a piece of cloth to wipe the blood from his face, whereupon an archer from the army of Yazid (may Allah’s curse be upon him) shoots a triple-headed arrow, which lodges into Imam al-Hussain’s (AS) heart. He pulls out the arrow causing blood to gush out. The Holy Imam is thirsty. He cries: “O Allah, I am thirsty”, in the meantime another man approaches and shoots an arrow which thrusts into Imam al-Hussain’s (AS) throat quenching his thirst. Hilal bin Nafi’ was reported as saying: “By God I never saw a person getting killed with his own blood all over his body in a better state than al-Hussain. I was so overwhelmed by the radiance of his face that I refrained from contemplating killing him.” Even when the accursed Shimr approached Imam al-Hussain (AS) to severe his blessed head, he said: “When I approached Hussain ibn Ali and my eyes fell on him, the light of his face so gripped me that I forgot my intention to kill him.” It is reported that when Imam al-Hussain was killed, the sky rained down blood.[1] It has been recorded that Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (AS) has said:

    “…For no one the heavens wept for forty days save Yahya and Hussain…”[2]

    Show me such a spectacle of human greatness in an event other than Karbala and I will commemorate its memory instead of Karbala! How can someone hear all this and not cry and mourn; even those who are not Muslims shed tears when they hear this tragedy. Even the heavens wept for Imam al-Hussain (AS).[3]

  10. Let me ask you a question, if a Muslim cries over the passing away of their own relatives, then how can they not cry over the grandson of the Messenger of Allah (S)? As one of the greatest British historians, Edward Gibbon, once said: “In a distant age and climate, the tragic scene of the death of Hussain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.”[4]

    Furthermore, crying for Imam al-Hussain (AS) is considered seeking nearness to Allah (SWT) for the tragedy of Karbala is bound to the great sacrifice which Imam al-Hussain (AS) endured for the sake of Allah (SWT) and for Islam. It is only when your heart is soft and absorbable that you feel the sense of closeness to Allah (SWT). The Holy Qur’an praises crying and those who cry for a legitimate cause. The Holy Qur’an describes many of the Prophets and their followers when they cried, “When the verses of the Most Gracious were recited unto them, they fell down prostrating and weeping”[5]

    Moreover, we cry over the martyrdom of Imam al-Hussain (AS) for the Holy Prophet (S) wept for Imam al-Hussain (AS) as recorded in many traditions (ahadith):

    Ahmed and Ibn al-Dhahhak narrated from Ali (AS): “I entered on the prophet (S) and his eyes were flooded, I said: Oh! Prophet of Allah, anyone made you angry? Why are your eyes flooded? He said: Gabriel just left me telling me that al-Hussain will be killed by the river Euphrates. He (the Prophet (S)) said: So he (Gabriel) said: Do you want me to let you smell his dirt (from his burial pot)? I said: Yes! He reached with his hand and grabbed and handful of dirt and gave it to me. So I could not help it and my eyes were flooded.”[6]

  11. Ummul Fadhl the daughter of al-Harith said that she entered on the Messenger of Allah (S) and she said: “Oh! Messenger of Allah, I saw a strange dream last night. He said: And what is it? She said: It was difficult. He said: And what is it? She said: I saw, as if, a piece of your body was severed and was put in my lap! The Messenger of Allah (S) said: You saw well - Fatima will give birth, God willing, a boy so he will be in your lap. Then Fatima gave birth to al-Hussain (AS) and he was in my lap - just as the Messenger of Allah (S) said. So I entered one day on the Messenger of Allah (S) and put him in his lap, but I noticed that the eyes of the Messenger of Allah (S) pouring tears! So I said: Oh! Prophet of Allah, my parents are your ransom, what is with you? He said: Gabriel (AS) came to me and informed me that my nation (ummah) will kill this son of mine.” [7]

    Umm Salamah has said: "al-Hussain entered on the Prophet (S), while I was sitting at the door, so I saw in the hand of the Prophet (S) something he turned over while (Hussain) sleeping on his stomach. I said: Oh messenger of Allah, I looked and saw you turning something over in your hand when the kid was sleeping on your stomach and your tears were pouring? He said: Gabriel came to me with the sand upon which he (Hussain) will be killed. And he informed me that my nation (umma) will kill him."[8]

    Ibn Saad, Ali bin Muhammad, Yahya bin Zakariya, a man heard it from 'Amir al-Sha'bi say: “When Ali (as) passed by Karbalaa in his march to Siffien and lined up with Nainawa - a village on the Euphrates - he stopped and called one of them men: Tell aba 'Abdullah (al-Hussain (AS)) what this land is called? He said: Karbala. Then he cried until the earth was wet from his tears. He then said: I entered on the messenger of Allah (S) and he was crying. So I said: What makes you cry?

    He said: Gabriel was with me, just now, and informed me: that my son al-Hussain (AS) will be killed at the banks of Furat in a location called Karbala. Then Gabriel grabbed a handful of dirt and let me smell it. So I could not help it, my eyes overflowed.”[9]

    From this tradition (hadith) we can see that Imam al-Ali (AS) also wept for Imam al-Hussain (AS). There are more traditions showing that the Holy Prophet (S) wept for Imam al-Hussain (AS).[10]

    Umm Salamah, the wife of the Holy Prophet (S) also wept for Imam al-Hussain (AS).[11]

    Even the Jinns mourned Imam al-Hussain (AS)'s death, it has been reported that after Imam al-Hussain (AS)'s martyrdom, Umm Salamah said: "I heard the Jinns mourning for al-Hussain (AS).”[12]

    In conclusion, we cry for Imam al-Hussain (AS) because so did the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (S). Every year we continue and revive the message of Karbala by mourning and crying over the injustice which the Ahlul Bayt (AS) suffered on the plains of Karbala, and through this we renew our pledge of allegiance to the Imam (AS) and keep his noble cause alive in our hearts.

    [1] Nadra al-Azdiya, a woman who was contemporary of Imam al –Hussain (AS), is said to have reported: “When al-Hussain b. 'Ali was killed, the sky rained down blood, so that next morning we found our wells and water jugs filled with it.” This hadith is narrated by Ibn Hajar.

    [3] al-Suyuti reports in his commentary on the verse (19:13) describing Allah's compassion towards the ancient martyr John son of Zachariah that “The heavens did not weep for the death of anyone except John son of Zachariah and al-Hussain b.

  14. @Sameer bhai,surely people like them must not have heard about Hazrat Owais Qarni (May Allah be pleased with him), a respectable companion of Rasulallah (S.A.W.W), who on seeing the broken teeth of Rasulallah (S.A.W.W)in the Battle of Ohad, broke his own teeth as a mark of immense grief he felt. Rasulallah (S.A.W.W)didn't rebuke him for that.If it was against the teachings of Islam, He (S.A.W.W) would have done that.

    IS IT RITE ....


  16. @ aga :


  17. Mr. Sameer thank you for your reply to the post by Admin, I really appreciate your hard work by sharing your believes with references and the thought process behind it ... however i would be great full if you could shed some light on the points below ...

    1) I totally agree that the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam), his family members must have cried upon the sad news by Angel ...but did they cry every day or month or year till the time they were alive is very natural for a family member to react to a bad news about the loved one (Did any one started beating or mourning for the rest of their life)... they say after Allah no one can love the child more than mother ... I am sure Bibi Fatima (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon her) must have cried n mourn all her life after she came to know, what Prophet(PBUH)was told, and i am sure nowadays when people die their mothers cry & mourn for the rest of their life...coz it is part of their self made religion ...

    2) The verse you quote i am pasting the complete verse so that people may know, please never use any verse out of context... There is a verse in Quran that say do not pray this does not means the Ummah should stop praying but the complete context means something else ...

    [Maryam 19:54] And remember Ismail in the Book; he was indeed true to his promise and was a Noble Messenger, a Prophet.

    [Maryam 19:55] He used to command his people to offer prayer and give charity, and was liked by his Lord.

    [Maryam 19:56] And remember Idrees in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet.

    [Maryam 19:57] And We lifted him to a high position. (Living with soul & body in heaven, after his death.)

    [Maryam 19:58] It is these upon whom Allah has bestowed favour among the Prophets, from the descendants of Adam; and from those whom We boarded along with Nooh; and from the descendants of Ibrahim and Israel; and from those whom We guided and chose; when the verses of the Most Gracious were recited to them, they fell down, prostrating and weeping. (* Command of Prostration # 5.)

    [Maryam 19:59] And after them came the unworthy successors who squandered prayer and pursued their own desires, so they will soon encounter the forest of Gai in hell.

    [Maryam 19:60] Except those who repented and accepted faith and did good deeds - so these will enter heaven, and they will not be deprived * in the least. (* Of their due reward.)

    In the 2nd reference Holy Quran, (17:109). it say ...
    [b/Israel 17:106] And We sent down the Qur’an in parts, that you may gradually recite it to the people, and We sent it down slowly in stages.

    [b/Israel 17:107] Proclaim, "Whether you accept faith in it or not"; indeed those who received knowledge before the Qur’an came, fall down prostrate on their faces when it is recited to them.

    [b/Israel 17:108] And they say, "Purity is to our Lord - indeed the promise of our Lord had to come true."

    [b/Israel 17:109] And they fall down on their faces weeping, and this Qur’an increases their humility. (Command of prostration # 4).

    [b/Israel 17:110] Proclaim, "Pray calling (Him) Allah or calling (Him) the Most Gracious; whichever name you call with - they are all His magnificent names; and do not offer your prayers very loudly or very softly, and seek a way between them."

    In both these verses it not mentioned that one should weep for any human being but for Allah alone, Sir what is the difference between you who cry for Hassan, Hussein, Ali (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them All) and those who believe in Ram or Jesus or any other human being ...Even weeping or mourning for the Holy Prophet is not Allowed or practiced any where...

  18. 3) As you said Muslims cry over their relatives than why cant we cry for these gr8 people, for this please reread the Article above, NO Muslim is allowed to mourn for more than 3 days and in case one's loved one die on Eid day than no one is allowed to mourn after the person has been buried (Anyone please correct me if i am wrong)

    4) You said Every one cried for Hazrat Hussain, the family the jin, the sky, the sun, everything ... but why aren’t they crying now ... why Allah did not killed the Yazid that day (he and his family ruled for 108 years if i am not wrong), don’t you think he was destined to die like this and Yazid was suppose to do this bad thing...
    but i am sure you understand this every one cried at that time for a reason ... some were family while the others saw all that happening to the family of Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) why do beat them selves today, why don't they simple pray more nafal's on that day and pray to Allah for his forgiveness ...

    5) Finally i would like to ask all who read this page... Why do they call them self Sunni or Shia ... Do you know any single Hadis in which the Holy Prophet call him self with anything other than being Muslim ....the day you stop calling your self with different labels ... that day you will only concentrate on One Allah, One Book, & one Prophet i.e Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam)...

    Please forgive me if i have some how offended you ... All my intention was to learn & share ...
    Thank you for reading ...

  19. brother Asim i really learned alot and gained much necessary information ...... JAZAKALLAH
