Blood and Islam: Between Eid and Ashura

At this moment in the Islamic calendar, we stand between two holidays in which truth is performed with the spilling of blood: Eid al-Adha, which was celebrated this past week, and Ashura, which will take place  in November. In both cases, the annual observations are accompanied by debate over the meaning of this blood and how “religion” is supposed to look.

Last week, Muslims around the world observed Eid al-Adha, which marks the completion of the hajj. The central character in the story of hajj is not Muhammad, but Abraham, whose willingness to sacrifice what he loved most in the world—his own son—is imitated when pilgrims throw stones at walls representing the devil. In honor of Abraham’s absolute submission to God, Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha with the slaughter of a goat or lamb.

Towards the start of November, Shi’a Muslims will commemorate another sacrifice: the martyrdom of Husayn, Muhammad’s grandson, on the day of Ashura. Husayn gave his life in an impossible war against the unjust powers of his time. In a controversial practice, many observers of Ashura will mark their love for Husayn on their own bodies, whipping their backs with blades or lacerating their heads. Even within Shi’a communities, the practice’s Islamic appropriateness is debated. The image of men parading through the streets, drenched in their own blood, has become ammunition for more than one polemical agenda: Sunnis might use the practice to say that Shi’as are not legitimate Muslims, and Islamophobes look at the scene as evidence that Islam at large is fanatical and violent.

In the cases of both Eid al-Adha and Ashura, there are Muslims who seek to reform these practices to match their own ideas of what it means to be modern, rational, and humane. In alternative visions of Eid al-Adha, the slaughter of an animal and the distribution of its meat among the needy can be replaced by other forms of charity. In commemoration of Husayn’s willingness to be slaughtered on Ashura, many Muslims choose to donate their blood, either as an alternative or complement to self-injury. On the day of Ashura in Shi’a-majority Iran, blood banks collect nearly four times their daily average.

I can appreciate efforts to read these stories of Abraham and Husayn as calls to ethical action in the world; Muslims have been doing this throughout their history. Muslims who refrain from slaughtering animals on Eid do so with belief that Islam privileges compassion and mercy over ritual demands. Muslims who donate to blood banks on Ashura are following the supreme example of Husayn, who gave his blood in a much more drastic fashion. While innovating in their practice, these Muslims remain invested in their tradition, seeking to uphold its power and meaning in new contexts.

Unfortunately, some Muslims who call for such reforms can sound like vehement Islamophobes, charging their brothers and sisters with “blind” adherence to “senseless” or “barbaric” rituals. Following certain assumptions about what makes good religion—namely, a location of meaning only in the soul, never on the body—they insist that there can be nothing spiritual about spilling blood.

If someone has an objection to eating animals, I can understand the refusal to slaughter for Eid. However, I am a meat eater, and I do not raise or hunt my own meat. I benefit from the destruction of animals without ever having to think about it. The Eid slaughter, if we perform it with mindfulness, forces a confrontation with the unpleasant reality that sustains us. At least it’s better than buying meat at the store and then pretending to be detached from the process.

It’s hard to find mosques in the United States where I can cut myself for Husayn, but at the very least I will join a community in matam and participate in ritual chest-slapping, until my pecs turn bright red. Husayn left Mecca for Karbala with a promise that he would complete the rites of hajj by sacrificing not a goat, but his own life; like the slaughtered goat, the death of innocent Husayn became a source of sustenance for others. We will cry for Husayn and his camp of maybe one hundred supporters who stood against an army of thousands, and our own guilty status as the beneficiaries of Husayn’s sacrifice, and we will write our love, grief, and guilt on our bodies. With each sting of my hand on my chest, I will consider how much worse Ashura must have been for Husayn. Every day is Ashura, said one of Husayn’s descendants; every land is Karbala. The tragic slaughter of Husayn by a tyrant’s order represents the injustice and suffering that continues in our own time. However, as the world is filled with oppression and undeserved privileges of various forms, I know that I occupy the role of Husayn’s killers much more than that of Husayn’s supporters.

Many people, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, would say that spilling blood is disgusting and pain has no place in spirituality. Of course, these practices don’t necessarily leave us feeling good. Putting a knife into an animal is not fun, either. But between these two holy days, Eid al-Adha and Ashura, we remind ourselves of the violence of our own lives—a violence that continues to feed us—and our roles within that violence. It’s sad and heavy. Some folks want no sadness or heaviness in their religion, which is fine; but for me, it’s kind of the point.

Difference Between Http And Https

HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transport Protocol, which is just a fancy way of saying it’s a protocol (a language, in a manner of speaking) for information to be passed back and forth between web servers and clients. This all is of no use. The important thing is the letter S which makes the difference between HTTP and HTTPS. The S (big surprise) stands for “Secure“.Difference Between Http And Https,Difference Between,Http,Https,Difference,Between Http And Https,Between,Difference Http And Https,https-monitoring,http_vs_https
If you visit a website or webpage, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following: http://. This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular ‘unsecure’ language. In other words, it is possible for someone to eavesdrop on your computer’s conversation with the website. If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.
This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an “HTTP” website..!!
But if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.
If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn’t, there’s no way you’re going to enter sensitive information like a credit card number..!!
You won’t see anything different between the HTTP and HTTPS sites. There are only two differences you’ll notice:
  • The web address (at the top of your web browser) will begin with https instead of http.
  • Your web browser may give you a message something like, You are about to view pages over a secure connection.
There are some other primary differences between http and https, however, beginning with the default port, which is 80 for http and 443 for https. Https works by transmitting normal http interactions through an encrypted system, so that in theory, the information cannot be accessed by any party other than the client and end server. There are two common types of encryption layers: Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), both of which encode the data records being exchanged.

In response, the client selects a connection method, and the client and server exchange certificates to authenticate their identities. After this is done, both parties exchange the encrypted information after ensuring that both are using the same key, and the connection is closed. In order to host https connections, a server must have a public key certificate, which embeds key information with a verification of the key owner’s identity. Most certificates are verified by a third party so that clients are assured that the key is secure.
Https is used in many situations, such as log-in pages for banking, forms, corporate log ons, and other applications in which data needs to be secure. However, if not implemented properly, https is not infallible, and therefore it is extremely important for end users to be wary about accepting questionable certificates and cautious with their personal information while using the Internet.
