Some people have turned Majalis (mourning ceremonies for Ahlulbayt) into rituals only. Others perform them for reward in the hereafter only. They have failed to comprehend the real value and effectiveness that these mourning events hold in changing the destiny of the Muslim Ummah.
These tears that we shed have the potential to turn into a flood that can drown the oppressors, tyrants, and Yazids of all times. These chest beatings have the potential to be a slap on the face of the arrogant powers. Unfortunately, some people have failed to realize what the Imams of Ahlulbayt (A) wanted us to accomplish through these Majalis.
Imam Khomeini understood well the potential that these mourning ceremonies hold. He gave it direction and the Iranian nation accepted it. The result is the establishment of Islamic Government.
How long is it going to take for the believers across the world to realize the true potential of these Majalis?
