Every Day Is Ashura, Every Land Is Karbala

Listen to "Salam bar Hossein," sung by Sadegh Ahangaran, to commemorate the day of Ashura.

Via Ihsan

Ali Shariati said, "Every day is Ashura, every land is Karbala." It means the same thing as Karl Marx's answer to John Swinton (John Swinton, "Karl Marx," The Sun, 6 September 1880):

"What is?" I had inquired, to which, in deep and solemn tone, he replied: "Struggle!"

PS: Several other songs by Ahangaran are made available at the Web site of Radio Iran.
