Hadith from Imam Hussein about Crying by: Shia Muslim

Imam Hussain (AS), the third Imam of Shia Muslims, martyred in the battle of Karbala in 61 AH (680 AD). His holy shrine in Karbala is the most interested place for Shia Muslims to be visited. Before he was martyred, he said that his martyrdom will produce a movement within Muslims and whenever a believer recalls the event of Ashura, he will cry for it. Now, after about 1400 years, Muslims mourn and lament for Imam Hussein and take Majalis for him and his companions:

Crying for Imam Hossein

»Imam Hussein (AS)

en: I KILLED FOR TEARS; EVERY BELIEVER WHO REMEMBERS ME, WEEPS FOR ME


أَنَا قَتِیلُ الْعَبْرَةِ لَا یَذْکُرُنِی مُؤْمِنٌ إِلَّا بَکَى‏
فا: من کشته اشکم، هیچ مومنی مرا یاد نمی‌کند مگر اینکه گریه می‌کند

Self Flagellation with Knives or Swords or Chains of Blades Forbidden in Shia by: Shia Muslim
Unfortunately some minorities of Shia around the world, specially in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, mourn in the day of Ashura in Muharram in such a way that no sane person can confirm it. They harm themselves with some type of blades and say that we love Imam Hussein! 
Every year, hundreds of photos of these ceremonies are distributed over the web and if someone, unfamiliar with Shia believes, saw these pictures, he may think: o damn!, what an unconscionable religion!


However, almost all grand Ayatollahs of Shia prohibited these type of mourning. For example, Imam Khamenei, about 20 years ago said:

Tatbir is one of the wrong doings. I know some will say: “It would have been proper if he had not talked about Tatbir.” They will say: “What do you have to do with Tatbir? Some people practice it, let them do so!” No! One cannot remain silent towards such a wrong action.
It is wrong that some people hold daggers and hit themselves on the head to bleed. What are they seeking?! How can this be an act of mourning?! Of course hitting on the head with one’s hands is a sign of mourning. You have seen it several times that when people face suffering, they hit on their chests and heads. This is a typical symbol of mourning. But where have you ever seen a person who is suffering from the loss of a dear one, hit on their head with a dagger and make it bleed?! How can this be a form of mourning?
#Tatbir [#QameZani] is a fabricated tradition. It is among the issues that does not belong to the religion and undoubtedly God is not also pleased with such a practice.
The more I thought about it, the more truly I realized I cannot overlook informing our dear people about Tatbir- which is certainly an act of wrongdoing and a heresy. Do not practice it! I do not approve of it. If someone does something to pretend that they want to practice Tatbir, I will be truly dissatisfied with them. I am declaring this solemnly.
Ayatollah #Khamenei, June 07, 1994
#ImamHussain  

Self Flagellation is forbidden in Shia

Tatbir In View of Imam Khamenei

This act, that is well-supported by western news channels like BBC, CNN and others, is also prohibited in Quran:

And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.

We are in Muharram, the first month of the lunar calendar. Once upon a time on such days, in 61 AH, Imam Hussein, the third Imam of Shia, and his little followers were martyred in a brutally manner.

Hossein (as) is the grandson of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He was invited by about 18000 people of Kufa to establish his caliphate and dethrone the libertine leader, Yazid. But Ebne Ziad the new leader of Kufa (a city in Iraq under supervision of Yazid) scared people in a manner that almost all of them returned from their idea and leaved Hussein alone and even fight with him! Finally happened what happened:

Hussein and 72 persons of his followers were against the enemy army of about 30,000 warriors. They all were martyr in a very brutally manner. Although they were in a place between two rivers but the enemy were closed the path to rivers and they were thirsty for about 3 days. There were some children over there; specially one infant child, Ali Asghar (as) which killed while he was on hands of his father Hossein (as) asking water for him!

Since then each year Shiites mourn for Hussein and his followers at Muharram and specially Ashura the 10th day of Muharram in which AbaAbdellah Al Hussein (as) martyred. Moreover, millions of pilgrims mourn in Karbala every year, yet it still remains a distant journey that each and every Shia longs to make.

We are waiting for Imam Mahdi (aj) to come and take avenge of Hussein, Insha’Allah.

Imam Mahdi (as): I will lament for you morning and evening and weep for you with tears of blood
