Question : #1049 Category: Muharram Related
Subject: Practice/ritual of wearing sha
Question: Salam alaikum wa RahmutAllah wa Barakatahu,

In my family (and across India) there had been a practice related to rituals of Muharram, in which of 7th or 11th of Muharram boys are made to wear shackles (hand, feet and neck) in remembrance of enslavement of Imam Zain-ul-Abedeen a.s. My parents had made me wear these since my childhood from 7th of Muharram to 20th of Safar i.e. Ar'baeen. Recently someone raised question against this ritual saying that Imam a.s. was forced to wear the shackles and it is illogical to wear them as part of Muharram rituals. I personally don't see anything wrong in wearing them and they remind me of Aseeran-e-Karbala a.s. But as this is matter of practice so I want to know opinion of a jurist that is this practice/ritual of wearing shackles in remembrance of enslavement of Imam Zain-ul-Abedeen a.s. after catastrophe of Karbala allowed or one should abstain from it.

Was'salam,
Sayed Mohammad Faiz Haider Hussaini
