Is Ghoon allowed in Islam?


Asalaamualaikum respected Maulana Shaykh Nazim and Maulana Shaykh Hisham and the staff of eshaykh.

I just wanted to know if the practice of ghoon is allowed in Islam? I know it is common in Shias, but is it an act that is forbidden in Islam? Please, I would like someone to please put some light on this topic.There are not lot of people who talk about it but it is becoming very common in my country and I would really like to know if it holds any importance in Islam. Am very confused about the whole topic, please help me to clear my doubts.



Alaykum Salam,

Fasting 9-10 Muharram is one of the biggest Sunnas of the year; and fasting, giving sadaqa and praying nafl in the first 10 days and nights of Muharram is rewarded like shahada. Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) emphasized fasting in Muharram most after Ramadan. The rest is all man-made play and distraction to lead people away from the blessed Prophetic practices and advices, so draw your own conclusions.
