closing of businesses on wafat


Salamoun alaykoume mera sawale ye hai kyou achoura ka dine shop doukane close hota hai or imam ali ki shahadate me wajib nahi hai ?


This is not something specifically mentioned in ahadith. Normally we do practice it due to the respect we pay to Ahlul Bayt (as) which is a very good thing to do.

Yes, there are few sayings in regards to day of Ashura that a person needs to refrain from earning livelihood.

Our aulama do suggest for such a closure for 21st of the holy month of Ramadan too.
