Topic: Fasting on the day of Ashura (10th Muharram) by Sayed Mahdi al-Modaressi

"The saddest and most tragic thing, my brothers and sisters, and I’m sorry I have to say this, is that after fourteen centuries of the tragedy of the day of Ashura we have yet to receive not an apology, but a statement condemning the death of Imam Hussain (A.S). For someone to tell us that:

Listen. Imam Hussain (A.S) was killed and we condemn that.

Didn’t they condemn the Danish cartoons? Didn’t they condemn the insults that were made against the Prophet (S.A.W) by going berserk in the streets? By destroying cars? By destroying public property? Didn’t that happen? Why? Because the Prophet (S.A.W) was insulted?

Which is a bigger insult? For the Prophet’s own flesh and blood to be martyred in a desolate land while being thirsty, the way a camel is slaughtered. Which is more insulting to the Prophet (S.A.W): a bunch of pathetic cartoons or for his grandson’s to be killed? Why don’t you condemn that?

Or you know what? We don’t want your condemnation. At least don’t celebrate this day as a day of celebration and festivity. Is that too much to ask?

Oh Allah, the day my imaan is perfect, take me from this world.

If you tell the truth, it becomes a part of your past. If you lie, it becomes a part of your future.
