      Muharram, Ashura and Shia Muslims (The true face of Shia Muslims)
Ashura 2014 by: Shia Muslim

In Muharram 2014, Supreme leader of Iran held some Majalis in his Husseiniye. In these meetings, some prominent Shia mullah speaks about Ashura uprising and scarifices of Imam Hussein and his companions. Then he talks about disasters imposed on Hussein (AS), his followers, women and daughters and people cry on these sorrows. After this, a Maddah sings some poetry and people mourn for Imam Hossein and his companions in Karbala. Typical Mourning in Iran is striking on chest with hands, known as SinehZani. Some other types of mourning like Tatbir (Self-mutilation, Flagellation or GhameZani) which may be seen in other countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan and India are forbidden in Iran, due to the Fatwa of Imam Khamenei.

The following photos are taken in the day of Ashura 2014 in Beyte-Rahbari (Husseiniye of Imam Khomeini in Iran):

My First Muharram by: Shia Muslim

Dr. Rebecca Masterton was a Sunni Muslim. After a visit of Haram of Seyyedeh Zeinab in Syria, she found new things in Islam. See the following interesting video, in which she describes her experience of converting to Shia.

Some sentences of the interview:
I can detect that there are something different in the Haram of Seyyede Zeinab (SA).
You can just feel something different in Haram from other places in the city.
It was raining in the day of Ashura in Tehran and I was thinking, you know, the sky is crying for Imam Hussein (AS).
After return to London I start going to the Majalis of Imam Hussein (AS).
In Majalis, they were recounting the details of the history of Karbala.
He (professor) was giving a series over the ten nights [of Muharram].
I am pleased with your decree, Imam Hussein (AS) said...
[After hearing the lectures] I realized that sacrifice of Imam Hussein (As) is essential to Islam... It was a necessary sacrifice for us to realize the truth of the message of Islam.
You can't really understand the proper message of Islam, Tohid, if you don't understand the sacrifice of Imam Hossein(AS)
Some one make a comment online: well you know, lots of people died in Hiroshima, so why you crying on this number of people who died in the battle of Karbala?
The issue is not about numbers. Its about what the Imam stood for. Its about Imams purity, innocence...

Hadith about Imam Hussein by: Shia Muslim

Hadith abour Muharram. Crying on Hussein (AS)

Imam Reza (AS):

When my grand father Hussain (AS) was killed, the sky rained blood and red clay; O son of Shobeib if you cry so that your tears flow on your cheeks, God forgive your sins, small or coarse and more or less

Al-Amali of Sheikh Sadoogh

امام رضا علیه السلام
چون جدم حسین (ع) کشته شد آسمان خون و خاک سرخ بارید؛ ای پسر شبیب اگر بر حسین گریه کنی تا اشکت بر گونه ‏هایت روان شود خدا هر گناهی کردی از خرد و درشت و کم و بیش بیامرزد
الأمالی (للصدوق) / ترجمه کمره ‏ای، ص: 130

Five Questions from Muslims - Sunni or Shia? by: Shia Muslim

1. There is a common narration from Sunni and Shia sources that says: everyone dies and he does not know the Imam of his time, dies the death of ignorance. Q1: Did Fatema (SA), know Imam of his time or not?

2. Sunni brothers say the leader must be chosen by a council. Q2: Which council appointed the second caliph?

3. Sunni Muslims, take their religion from four Imams: Imam Malik, Imam Shafi'i, Abu-Hanifeh and Ahmad-ibn-Hanbal. Q3: These four imams you have, lived in what century? And what is their relation with the Caliphs? The Shia Imams are their Caliphs as well. But you have four caliphs and four imams.

4. Shia Muslims have thousands of prayers and Monajats from their twelve Imams. Q4: How many prayers or hymns or praise of the Lord you quoted from your first three Caliphs or your Imams?

5. There is a reliable Hadith from Shia and Sunni sources that says: Caliphs after the prophet (PBUH) are 12. Q5: What are your 12 Imams?

Arbaeen 2013, Million Walking to Karbala by: Shia Muslim

Arbaein is the 40th day after Ashura in which Imam Hussein (as) and his companions martyred. In Arbaein, due to some historical documents, Imam Sajjad (AS), Hazrat Zeinab (the sister of Imam Hussein), and some other relatives of the Imam, came back to karbala and mourned for Imam and other martyrs of the Ashura.

After Saddam, walking to Karbala was released. Since then, every year, millions of Shia Muslims from all over the world travel to karbala, the holy city of Iraq, to commemorate the religious ceremony of Arbaeen, the 40th day after the martyrdom of the third Shia Imam.

The walk from Najaf to Karbala is one of the most enlightening acts of worship a pilgrim can perform. The suffering and hardship imposed on the family of Imam Hussain (as) and the grandchildren of Prophet Muhammad (s) is felt in every step, and thus the love and respect for this holy family increases in the heart of the believer with every step that is taken towards the holy land of Karbala.

These days pilgrims are heading to karbala, from within Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Lebanon, Arabestan, Bahrein, ... and even European countries. In this journey, Iraqi people welcome the pilgrims, feed them for free, cure their wounds and provide them with places to sleep.

The following are some beautiful photos taken from this event.

Peace be upon you O Aba-Abdellah

Imam Mahdi (ATFS) from Sunni point of view by: Shia Muslim
Even if the entire duration of the world's existence has already been exhausted and only one day is left before Doomsday (Day of judgment), Allah will expand that day to such a length of time, as to accommodate the kingdom of a person out of my Ahlul-Bayt who is called by my name. He will then fill out the earth with peace and justice as it will have been full of injustice and tyranny before then. Sahih Tirmidhi along with 24 other Sunni sources

Jamkaran Mosque, A Mosque under Imam Mohammad AlMahdi's Attention

This narrative is very similar to those of Shiites but Sunnis think that Imam Mahdi (AS) is not alive and it may not be born yet. Shia on the other hand says that Mahdi (AS) is alive and he is son of Imam Hassan Askari (AS) the 11th Imam of Shiites. This confirms the above narrative that emphasizes Imam Mahdi is from Ahlul-Bayt. It is also compatible with the Hadith that tells: If someone die and don't recognize his Imam he is died in the way of Jaheliyah (Era before the Prophet (SAWA) ). To know our Imams it must be alive.
