Prophet (pbuh) forbade matam


I saw many rafidi’s always saying that we love hussain(as) so we perform matam in his love!

Now lets see what Imam Ali said about matam in Nahj ul Balagha:

[ 235 ] ومن كلام له عليه السلام
قاله وهو يلي غسل رسول الله, صلى الله عليه وآله وتجهيزه :

بِأَبِي أَنْتَ وأُمِّي يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، لَقَدِ انْقَطَعَ بِمَوْتِكَ مَا لَمْ يَنْقَطِعْ بِمَوْتِ غَيْرِكَ مِنَ النُّبُوَّةِ وَالْإِنْبَاءِ وأَخْبَارِ السَّماءِ، خَصَصْتَ حَتَّى صِرْتَ مُسَلِّياً عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ، وَعَمَمْتَ حَتّى صَارَ النَّاسُ فِيكَ سَواءً، وَلَوْ لاَ أَنَّكَ أَمَرْتَ بِالصَّبْرِ، وَنَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْجَزَعِ، لَأَنْفَدْنَا (1) عَلَيْكَ مَاءَ الشُّؤُونِ (2) ، وَلَكَانَ الدَّاءُ مُمَاطِلاً (3) ، وَالْكَمَدُ مُحَالِفاً (4) ، وَقَلاَّ لَكَ (5) ! وَلكِنَّهُ مَا لاَ يُمْلَكُ رَدُّهُ، وَلاَ يُسْتَطَاعُ دَفْعُهُ! بِأَبِي أَنْتَ وَأُمّي! اذْكُرْنَا عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ، وَاجْعَلْنَا مِنْ بَالِكَ!

SERMON 235: Spoken when Amir al-mu’minin was busy in the funeral ablution (ghusl) of the Holy Prophet and shrouding him

May my father and my mother shed their lives for you. O’ Messenger of Allah! With your death the process of prophethood revelation and heavenly messages has stopped which had not stopped at the death of others (prophets). Your position with us (members of your family) is so special that your grief has become a source of consolation (to us) as against the grief of all others; your grief is also common so that all Muslims share it equally. If you had not ordered endurance and prevented us from bewailing we would have produced a store of tears and even then the pain would not have subsided and this grief would not have ended and they would have been too little of our grief for you. But this (death) is a matter that cannot be reversed nor is it possible to repulse it. May my father and my mother die for you; do remember us with Allah and take care of us.

I wonder is Shiites grief more for Imam Hussain(ra) then Hazrat Ali’s (ra) grief for Rasool-ALLAH(saw) ??

    [quote]With your death the process of prophethood revelation and heavenly messages has stopped which had not stopped at the death of others (prophets)[/quote] oh really but according to al kafi hz fatima(ra) was still receiving some heavenly messages which was named mushnaf fatima… so is correct hz ali(ra) or hz fatima(ra) ?
