Question: Swords and
Zanjeer (Chains with small knives) or sharp Knives with which the body gets
hurt and even blood comes out of it but there if there is no danger to the
life, What is the ruling on it?
Answer: The mourning and
chest beating in the distress of the leader of the oppressors Imam Hussain AS
is considered to be good act. But it should be noted that no blood comes out of
the body or it becoming an act of hurting ones body. Hence this act is
defamation for the religion therefore it is unlawful and in all circumstances
one should avoid this type of acts.
TRADITION OF THE INFALLIBLES AS
The first lamentation
started at the plain of Karbala when Ali Akbar AS the son of Imam Hussain AS
came at the door of the tent and said with his dried lips “O Mother take my
Last Salam, O My Aunts take the Last Salam” By this saying of this Salam all
the tent was erupted by mourning and lamentation. All the ladies surrounded him
some has hold his Aba and some has kissed his feet when he has climbed the
horse. Ali Akbar AS turned towards the battle field after saying Vale to all of
them and then from behind Fiza AS shouted he turned and saw his Aunt (Zainab
AS) and in her hand was a stone with which she was lamenting her injured
the presence of the infallibles the Zainab SA lamented and injured her forehead
which has become a Hujjat. And one who give fatwa against blood shedding and
lamentations is actually a shias of Muawiya and Yazeed and they belong to them.
