Anticipating for today ...

Today is[shadow=red]Ashura[/shadow].

[shadow=red]Ashura[/shadow] commemorates the uprising of Imam Hussein(PBUH) against tyranny and is honored on the 10th day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar.

It commemorates a struggle that is steeped in deep spiritual meaning, not only for Islamic history but for all humanity. It is a struggle between good and evil, between just and unjust, between weak and powerful, between immediate and the eternal, between principle and ambition. The power of Ashura is not only in the epic events that it commemorates, it is in the narrative of those events, in the symbolisms that we construct. Ultimately, it is in the meanings that we derive from those events.

Muharram is, of course, of special significance to Shias. But the events and meaning of Ashura is of significance and relevance to all Muslims, and I would suggest, to all humans everywhere.
