In most countries, keeping your body and children safe is part of a lifestyle. When people see or feel their lives or the babies´ are in danger, they will try to escape or look for a place in which they can be secure.
However, there is a group of people whose culture seems to be against the “safety rules,” the Muslims.
They annually celebrate Muhammad in brutal bloodletting ceremonies in which thousands continue to draw blood by whipping and cutting themselves to pieces.
And if you think you have seen it all, you have to know that the worst part is when they cut the children´s foreheads.
Babies wait terrified as a giant blade is placed on its head to complete with this frightening ritual.
Islam is a religion with thousands of believers around the world, which divided into denominations; the major ones are:
Sunni Islam ( which holds that Muhammad did not designate a successor and the Muslim community acted according to his sunnah in electing his father-in-law Abu Bakr as the first caliph.
Shiite Islam (which holds that the Islamic prophet Muhammad designated his grandson, Ali ibn Abi Talib, as his successor and the Imam leader after him)
Every year, Shiite Muslims take part in the scary ceremony to mark the religious day of Ashura, which commemorates the death of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
Hussein was killed during the 7th century Battle of Karbala in modern-day Iraq.
The death led to the current division between Shia and Sunni Muslims, who mark the event through fasting.
Shia men flagellate themselves with chains and blunt swords to remember “the suffering of Hussein shortly before his beheading.”
Is this practice according to God´s will?
This kind of practice does not come from God. How do we know that?, because the Bible is clear when it says “that everything good comes from God.”
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)
The word of God always shows us the right thing to do. May God have mercy on those people, especially the children.
