French Photographers At Chehlum Arbaeen Juloos 2011

Ghame Hussain Nahi To Kuch Bhi Nahi

Bagair Ahle Bayt Jannat Hasil Nahi Hoti

Parcham Abbas Ka Shia Ke Itihas Ka Humanity Ke Pyas Ka

Parcham Abbas Ka Shia Ke Itihas Ka Humanity Ke Pyas Ka

Qatal-e-Hussain (AS) Asal Mein Marg-e-Yazid Hai ISLAM Zinda Hota Hai Har KARBALA Ke

Quraan jisko tera hawaala nahi mila, Aankhe to mil gayi hai ujaala nahi mila, Farshe zamee'n pe bolnewale bahot mile, Nok-e-Sina pe bolnewala nahi mila.

Moharam in Mumbai Is An Experience of a Lifetime

Shia Ko Kafir Kehte Hain Khud Kanch Ke Gharon Main Rehte Hain

Man is An Island of Despair Even the Good Lord Could Not Repair

A Shroud That Calls Out Ya Hussain Aloud

Zikre Shabbir ko fatwaon se dabanay waley,
Kitny nadaan hain sooraj ko chupany waley,
Ghaib se aati hai sadaye Mehdi,
Zikry Shabbir ko hum hain bachany waley.

This is for those smartass who send us New Year Greetings for Moharam...

Its true
with blood
our New Year of Pain
In the hallowed name
of Hussain we start
remembering him
year after year
for 1400 years
a journey we chart
our blood our sweat
our tears our heart
the shia from azadai
you cannot tear apart
our tradition our culture
our ethos ghame hussain
an eternal state of art
modern yazid fails to
outfox or outsmart
on the stage of humanity
we do our bit our part
our black clothes our alams
our taboots zuljana
hands beating our hearts
we wait animatedly
for yazidiyat to depart

your new year greetings
shit on the mound
of a garbage sweet heart

As a street photographer as a poet I demystify time and space and it all depends whether you see my pictures as I saw them, murals on the wall of humanity.

I shoot common street scenes and here on Chehlum day I was accompanied by Ali Saddiqani from New York, he wanted to see Chehlum through my eyes now he can see it as visuals of my camera too.

I must reiterate again this Chehlum too I missed my American friend from Manhattan New York, Dr Glenn Losack MD .,,Glenn is fascinated with Shia culture and shoot pictures as real life paintings and this set is d…

Chehlum Juloos In Mumbai 2011 Dance of Death Tandav on the Soul of Shimr, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 166,188 items / 1,304,894 views

I continued my Dance of Death .. Tandav on the Soul of Shimr my personal metaphor of pain and form of expression as a Shia born and raised in India Hindustan, , and proud of the credentials of my Hindu culture , my roots and my Indian heritage.

I cut my head fiercely a day before at Hussain Tekri Jaora with the Kashmiri Shias I was told to get stitches I refused , my bleeding was uncontrollable because of my diabetes , but the JUST First aid guys did a good job, I owe them a lot , so here In Mumbai a wound that was raw I beat with the flat machete and let the bleeding afresh all over again in Mumbai on Chehlum day..

I participated in two Chehlums one in Hussain Tekri Jaora the other in my beloved Mumbai.

This is my much delayed new set at Fickr .com which I will divide in two segments the roadside Juloos with over 10 lac people and…
