  The Passion of Hussain
The tenth day of Muharram, known as Aashura, marks the martyrdom of Imam Hussain ibn Ali, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in the year 680 A.D. on the plains of Karbala, Iraq.
Each year, the first ten days of Muharram culminating in Aashura, are traditionally marked by Muslims of the Shi’a branch with processions, gatherings for recitations of the tragedy, self-flagellation as an _expression of mourning in some countries, and passion plays re-enacting the event.
The United States should learn the lessons of Muharram, Aashura, and the bombings of March 2nd: The Iraqi Arab Shi'a community and Ayatollah Sistani should not be taken for granted in their temporary support of the Coalition's occupation of post-war Iraq, nor their demands for free elections.

Besides fasting on the day of Aashura, being generous to one's family and spending more than what is normally spent on food, etc. is an act of great merit.
To attribute the significance of Aashura to Sayyiduna Hussain (RA)'s martyrdom is totally baseless because the sanctity of Aashura is proven, beyond doubt, from the time of Rasulullah (SAW), whilst Sayyiduna Hussain (RA) was martyred fifty years after the holy prophet Mohammed (SAW) left this earthly abode.
The fact that the martyrdom of Sayyiduna Hussain (RA) occurred on the Day of Aashura has absolutely no bearing on the significance of this day nor is the sanctity of this day derived from this event.

However, the events that occurred on the 10th day of Muharram (Aashura) in Kerbala were to become a beacon and an inspiration for future generations.
Brilliantly, Imam Husain succeeded in foiling this plan and he exposed the disreputable nature of Benu Umayya though this was at the expense of his life.
It was the day when Jihad would be in full bloom, blood would be shed, 72 innocent lives would be sacrificed, and a decisive battle would be won to save Islam and the Ummah.

 HRCP holds agencies responsible for Quetta massacre -DAWN - National; 13 March, 2004
Speaking at news conference in Press Club on Friday, he said that neither the Aashura incident was a sectarian clash nor there is any conflict between Sunnis and Shias in this province as they were living peacefully for decades but the killing was pre-planned by the government agencies to accomplish their hidden agenda.
The HRCP vice-chairperson said that his organization had contacted the people belonging to different schools of thought who had held the law-enforcement agencies responsible for the killing of most of the people who fell pray to firing on the Aashura day mourning procession.
He bitterly criticized security forces for giving miscreants a free hand for four hours on the incident day, who torched shops, cinemas, houses, and vehicles, and maintained that law-enforcement agencies totally failed in protecting the lives and properties of the people in the city.

Without doubt, the day of Aashura is the greatest day of tragedy – not only for the followers of the Prophet and his Ahlul Bayt, but also for the inhabitants of the entire universe.
As we mark this day of great grief and sorrow and spend the day in worship of Allah, let us remember the dua our Imam read on the Day of Aashura.
This is a supplication which each of us should seek to memorize and recite on a daily basis – and as we do so, remember that our Imam read this in his last stage in this world…”
