the translation of mourning

this is meant to be a space for people to come together and reflect on muharram this year - whether it be of our specific experiences within a community commemorating muharram, or simply our thoughts, memories, or understandings of karbala and imam husayn (a). how we choose to translate the different manifestations of azaa (mourning) that muharram recalls reflects upon our differing locations - and as always, im sure there is much to learn from each other.
(oh, and my thanks to my friend usamah for the urdu name)
