Is Imam Hussain remembered at your Hussainiyat?

Are your Hussainiyat carefully designed to be pleasing to the eye? Are they set up to look good on camera? Did you ask one person specifically to make plans with the media?

Is Imam Hussain remembered at your Hussainiyat?

Is your Hussainiyat highlighted by emotional latmiyat bringing to mind the brutality that took place at Karbala? Are wails and moans fine-tuned to perfectly punctuate the poetry? Does your baby Asghar bring all the weeping ladies to the musalla?

Is Imam Hussain remembered at your Hussainiyat?

Who has heard Imam Hussain's Mina sermon at a Hussainiyat? Who knows what kinds of oppression Yazid inflicted on Muslims? Not just sexual mores broken, but lives broken, souls crushed.

Who among you knows how Imam Hussayn planned to counter Yazid's tyranny, how he would do things differently?

Pouring Libations for the Ancestors

Some of the most powerful communications that I have ever heard were aired in this episode. They weren't loud. They spoke of the power of surviving hell. When the Ancestors speak, listen.
