  • As a convert to Islam and a Sunni Muslim. I love Imam Hussein (رضي الله عنه) and I would have fought with along side him to the death against his murderers and I cry when reading about his martyrdom and I mourn his death. I just don’t believe it’s the correct way to mourn him by cutting my self or innovating in the religion. I mourn him by crying for him and learning about his life.

  • Sunni are sadden by this. They dont do this as it is not part of Islam. If it was Allah would have ordered all. Best way is to follow the sunnah.

  • We do not commemorate the martyrdom of Hussein(May Allah be pleased with him)is simply because prophet Muhamed (peace be upon him) didn't do it neither did Ali or Hassan or Hussein or any of Ahlu Albayat(May Allah be pleased with him) do such a thing therefore we as muslims do not have the right to Invent new things in our religion which Prophet Muhamed and Ahlu bayat didn't teach us.

  • You will see many gatherings for the Zikir of Imam Hussain عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ from the Sunni Sufis Ahle sunnah wa al jamaat

  • Sunnis do not Wahabi Kharjis and Deobandis why you assign them as Sunnis should we call Nusairis and Druze as Shia then? We distribute food and water, give sadaqah, set up majlis where stories are recited by Khatibs we have Taziya and Urs procession.

  • Ya Abubakr,Ya Umar Ya Usman, Ya Ali, Ya Muaviyah,Ya Khalid,Ya Hasan ,Ya Husain ,Ya Gous,👑

  • If any "Sunni" says they love Imam Hussein peace be upon him and are against his oppression then let them disassociate and curse the likes of Zakir Naik who did ra on Yazeed and Abdullah ibn Umar who sided with Yazeed after Ashurah:

    Narrated By Nafi': When the people of Medina dethroned Yazid bin Muawiya, Ibn 'Umar gathered his special friends and children and said, "I heard the Prophet saying, 'A flag will be fixed for every betrayer on the Day of Resurrection,' and we have given the oath of allegiance to this person (Yazid) in accordance with the conditions enjoined by Allah and His Apostle and I do not know of anything more faithless than fighting a person who has been given the oath of allegiance in accordance with the conditions enjoined by Allah and His Apostle , and if ever I learn that any person among you has agreed to dethrone Yazid, by giving the oath of allegiance (to somebody else) then there will be separation between him and me."

    Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 88, Number 227

    If you refuse to disassociate from them both then dont claim to love Imam Hussein who RasoulAllah peace be upon him and his pure family said:

    The Messenger of Allah said: “Hussein is from me and I am from Hussein.”

  • I am sunni… And i hate yazeed bin muawiya… We dont like him… Clear your mind about our vision about yazeed maloon…

  • اللهم صل على محمد وال محمد
    سلام الله عليك يا ابن رسول الله الحسين عليه السلام

  • its not haram in quran yaqub as beat his head and chest when his brother yusuf was kidnapped so you cannot say that matam is haram

  • I have never met a Sunni who is not sad over the martyrdom of Sayyidina Hussein (rA)

  • It seems like everyone wants to be the judge of each other's comments even when they know Allah is the judge of them.

    The unknowlegd will say they have knowledge and when they're ignorant they say not.

    On one of the Prophets sword it is written….
    "Speak the truth even if it's against yourself"

    Question is….
    How many are ignorant to speak truth?

  • For everyone who wants to hear this form a sunni perspective: The reason why we don’t follow this is because we don’t mourn more than 3 days. We respect imam Hussain however we don’t believe in praising people too much especially after the prophet. We have limits. Another reasoning it’s because quite a few Sunnis are tryna stay in the safe side by avoiding innovation so celebrating things that’s not prescribed in religion.
    Btw this video was respectful

  • 1) We do accept Hussain as Imam neither any of the other 12 so called imams of shia. Their concept of imamate is clearly against finality of prophet
    2) The history of shahadat e hussain is so much riddled in lies from both sides that it is impossible to know the truth
    3) Quran clearly calls 'ummahahat ul momineen' as Ahle bayt and Shia concept of ahle bayt is completely against Quran
    4) All the believes and practices of Shia (all without exception) which are different from mainstream Muslims are heretic and against the teachings of Quran and Sunnah.
    5) Shia insult companions of Holy Prophet (sws) which is clearly against teachings of Quran.

  • As a sunni, everytime i hear about the story of imam hussein (ra), it always brings a heavy feeling into the heart. However we don't commemorate like some shias do (matam), because our body is not our own, but of Allah (SWT).

  • This Shias making Question as they go along don’t believe everything you hear or See on by Shias

  • This is the people that the Shia take their religion from- an ignorant woman who couldn’t even recite a verse of the Quran.

    My Shia friends- leave this pagan cult, it has nothing to do with Ahlul Bayt at all.

  • we sunni keep lanat on kafir yazeed laeim.
    but we respect Hazrat Ameer e Muawiya because he is sahabi of Rasool Pak.

  • Imam Hussain is Iman
    but we sunni do perform martyrdom
    because we believe Saheed e karbala are still alive.
    and martyrdom is done for dead people.

  • As Sunni's we feel sad about the tragic death of Hussain ra but we don't express that sadness by inflicting physical harm on ourselves

    And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.

  • Wow she basically just said that its all innovation as Prophet Muhammad Salallahualaihiwasslam was only there for 23years. But AllahSubhanaWaTa’ala said he perfected the Deen in the Quran. Come on , how can we do this to the Deen. Claim whoever deserved the caliphate but at the end of the day we still are where we are with even the Ottoman empire finished. We cant alter the Deen surely

  • Sunnis mourn of course, but not by hitting our bodies. Our bodies are amanah and not ours, it is Allah's amanah to us, it is sacred and not to inflicted with anything detrimental. And mind you, we are also shia to Hussein RA.
