Muharram Festival 2013, A Famous Festival For Muslims

Muharram marks the Islamic New Year. It is the first month of the Islamic calendar. Muharram is popular not as a celebration but as a month of mourning for a sect of Muslims called Shia. According to the Shia’s Muharram is a month of remembrance and respect for the martyrdom of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson Hazrat Imam Hussain, in the battle against the ruler Yazid.

People mourn on the 10th day of Muharram, where the people hold long processions and Taziya’s (emblem) are carried, which are made of silver, gold and brass and also alams (flag of Imam Hussain’s army). The Shia men beat their chests as a sign of mourning and recite the verses and sometimes also choose to hurt themselves with knifes and belts with spikes to show their sorrow. This 10th day of Muharram is called Yaum-e-Ashoora or the day of grief and sorrow, and this procession ends in a common place where taziya’s and alams are then buried. The self flagellation is called as Matam, and all the members of the family including little children and new born’s too are made to participate in the matam. The shia’s indulge in matam because they want to feel the pain that Imam Hussain felt on the day of his death.

The Shia Muslims mourn for 2 months and 8 days, and wear Black coloured clothes during this period, to show that they are mourning. Sunni Muslims fast during the 9th and 10th day of the month of Muharram, while Shia’s fast throughout the mourning period. They stop eating or drinking during break of dawn, and end their fast only in the evening.

Since Islamic calendar is based on the lunar movements, the date of Muharram changes every year. In 2013, Muharram will begin on  3 November, 2013 and will continue till 3 December, 2013.

Salam Ya Husain!!
Apni taqdeaer Jagatey hen tere Matam se,
Khoon ki raah bechaty hen tere Matam se,

Phir aaj Haq ke liye Jaan fida kare koi,
Wafa bhi Jhoom uthe youn wafa kare koi,
Namaz 1400 saalon se intezar mein hai,
“HUSSAIN” ki tarah mujh ko ada kare koi.

Zom e kasrat tha jinhain sab wo hijazi nikle,
Wo 72 they jo kirdar k ghazi nikle,
Is haqiqat ko bhala kon chupa sakta hy,
Jitne Shabbir k qatil thy namazi nikle.

Gharoor toot gaya koi martaba na mila,
Sitam ke baad bhi kuch hasil-jafa na mila,
Sire-e-Hussain mila hai yazeed ko lekin,
Shikast ye hai ke phir bhi jhuka hua na na mila.

Ali and Mustafa are a single part,
How can then one tear open this bond
Would then, not the Prophet shun away from you
If his brother you abandon in disregard?

Arz-o-samaa mein gunjta hai matam hamara….
aulad-e-yazid ko chubta hai maqam hamara….
jaltey raho…kurtey raho…martey raho hamein….
badla lega…abhi to baqi hai ik aur imam hamara….
