Yes, they claim that somehow by fasting on that day this is a “celebration”, you see I didn’t know that fasting is a celebration, I thought that playing music in large gathering and drinking and eating sweets is a celebration … but not fasting or praying …
So while we’re on this topic let me show you guys a couple of things, if any of you have been to ‘Iraq or Kuwait during ‘Ashura in the Shia areas he’ll know what I am talking about, these guys get together in large gatherings, distribute sweets and drinks in the streets, play the drums and the flutes and the trumpets and have themselves a party:
No! This is not a celebration, this is mourning! Only the Wahhabies celebrate on this day by fasting and praying Nawafil! But the divinely guided Shia are Mourning with sadness… just like this guy, say cheese you Sad sad Man!
And while you’re at it don’t forget to smile to the camera in this joyous occasion and take a couple of memorable irreplaceable photos for those beautiful Rafidhi family moments!
Have a break, have a Malboro:
There is nothing wrong with Tatbeer (smacking ones head with knifes/swords in public and spreading Aids/hepatitis etc.). It’s simpley like cupping (Hijamah), um … yeah, it is, if you really try hard, then you’ll be convienced! Besides, the holy Ayadollar$ have also no problems with smoking! Heck, they beat every Marlboro Cowboy hands down:
smoking is an old Sunnah of the Maharaja’s of Qom. There are much bigger guns, or actually the biggest Gun of Shi’ism in the 20th century (look at my avater), Mr Super-Cowboy the “miracle of Allah” (“Ayatollah”), addicted to cigarettes ABULQASIM AL KHOIE:
And how can you have these festivities without music and the trumpets (like JEWS) and the drums and the flutes???
Have no fear Sistani is here!
What is the ruling on using the drums and the trumpet and other instruments like them in the mourning rituals?
No problem in using them and others like them in the mourning rituals as they are usually used, they are not from the instruments of forbidden amusement.

Want it more juicy? I mean, Jewish?
and the drums, just like the polytheist catholics (like in spain):
Ya-Hussein-Ali-Madad-Mushriks (Rafidah Shias)
^Bloody or non-bloody, heresy is heresy.
Oh, there is no good lamentation circus except with some decorations. In Rafidism: the more Jewish the better.
- end -
Now since we have the food and the drinks and the music and we rented the halls, let us get the Party- Ooops! I mean the sad mourning rituals on the way while the filthy Sunnis fast.
All of this is brought to you by the lunatic flying in the sky like Aladdin (even above the clouds he still he has his Huseini stone with him… although in this case he could have used watermelon rinds..hmmm).
As for fasting on this day Ahlul-Bayt ordered it. Yes, they did, it is no “Umayyad innovation” nor a Jewish innovation it is the Sunnah, even according to Shia Sahih Ahadith
