It is so depressing, I thought Muharram this year will be going smoothly for me. Unfortunately, there is a big obstacle. Malaysia, as known for us that banned any Shia Islam activity that be done publicly. The government, with the influence of the religious department and narrow-minded Malay has raided many private places where Malay Shias used for religious rituals/activities.
There is no minority rights in Malaysia, especially Shia Muslims. Even the usage of ‘Allah’ word is also forbidden to be used by the Christians in their Gospel and newspaper. What stupid is, this is only imposed in West Malaysia (Peninsular), not East Malaysia (Sabah and Sarawak). I believe it because of political agenda. This is why Islam in Malaysia become passive, inactive unlike neighbor country such as Indonesia. Freedom of religious practice is allowed in there.
It is like a sin if you are a Shia. The Iranians adviced me not to attend their ceremony (which I always come there) because the police has warned them that they will shut down the place if the Iranians allowing Malay to participate the ceremony. So cruel. Unlike last year, this time is very difficult for me. I am very upset. I only managed to participate them in 2nd night until 5th night. I also not allowed to participate in other place that organized by Iranian Embassy on 7th night.
I nearly thought that I have to commemorate Ashura tragedy alone. Because it is a very important day and I never miss it ever since I became Shia. And I lost hope when thinking about I will never have a chance to step my foot into any Shia ceremony. I could not participate the Malay Shia ceremony because; 1) it is hidden and they do secretly 2) another ceremonies are too far from my place and I have no transport to get there.
One day before 10th Muharram (Ashura), I planning to mourning alone in my room by watching videos of eulogies. Then my Iranian friend invite me to another Iranian ceremony located in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. The ceremony was organized by Iranian students. Slightly difficult to get there. I took a cab and the fare is RM10 (ten ringgit Malaysia). At first, one of the manager (Iranian) seemed not allowing me to participate the ceremony (because he said the ceremony is for Iranian).
Eventually he allowed me after promising him that just for that day, and I begged him saying that I have no other choice. Really, this year is very difficult. I blame the people who trying to stop the Shia rituals even in private place. I curse them and also the people who supporting them.

The Christian hold him in such a high respect, when the head was brought to this man he said to them:
‘This, this is the son of your Messenger and Prophet!, if only Jesus (as) had such a progeny we would put him in the highest of standards”
This pious Christian fellow fell in love with Imam Hussien (as) after seeing his severed head …

The only and nearest Huseiniya from my place. Unfortunately, they speak Farsi. The majlis is organized by the Iranian embassy. I made a new friend here. His name is Sadegh, a student from Tehran. I arrived here rather late. They’ve already recited the Ziyarat Ashura. Every year, different mullah is sent from Iran to deliver speech here. Although I didn’t understand what are they speaking, I hope will get blessing for attending Imam Hussain (as)’s majlis. Ya Aba Abdellah!
Benefits of Ziyarat Ashura November 15, 2012Posted by Yakuza in Religion and faith.

“If you recite this Ziyarat, then the angels who visit my shrine will pray for you.” – Imam Baqir (as)
Seyed Shirazi (ra) reports an incident relating to Agha Fareed: “I was concerned in a hopeless situation, when I remembered the ziyarat that was emphasized especially for the people of Samarra. I commenced reciting the ziyarat from the 1st of Muharram. Incredibly, by the 8th of Muharram, my problem was solved.” (Al kalam bahrul kalam vol.1 p54.)
Syed Ahmed writes: “I was sitting in a corner of Masjid Sahla. Suddenly, a man entered the room wearing a turban and a black cloak. He looked around and then he walked towards me. He remarked, “Since you recite Ziyarat Ashura every morning, collect your expenses from me, so that you don’t have to depend on anyone.” Then he gave me some money and said, “This should suffice you for this month.” He left after that. I was completely baffled and felt as though my feet were stuck to the ground. Afterwards, I started looking for him all over but could not find him.”- Abqariyy-ul-hisaan
Sheikh Murtadha (ra) used to regularly recite Ziyarat Ashura every morning and late afternoon. After his demise, a person saw him in a dream, and inquired from him, “Which action has benefited you the most?” Sheikh Murtadha replied thrice,, “Ziyarat Ashura.”-Shaksiyate Shaykh Ansari, p330)
Hardships and afflictions, no matter how severe, can be remedied by reciting Ziyarat Ashura for forty consecutive days. Reports of people’s experiences testify to the authenticity of this tradition. They have reaped countless benefits through its recitation and have always resorted to it in moments of distress.
