Stop life for death
A flyer signed "Youth of Rasoolollah Mosque" handed out to passersby in
Isfahan during the last Noruz New Year holidays (March 2002). It encourages people
to abstain from all New Year festivities because Noruz (on the Iranian Calendar)
and the anniversary of Imam Hossein's martyrdom (on the Islamic lunar calendar) happened
to coincide this year. It notes that Muslims should learn from Christian Iranians
who postponed New Year 2000 festivities for a week because it coincided with a Muslim
day of mourning.
