Subject:

I just have a question regarding the practice of tatbir is it permisiable or not if so why

Answer:

Tatbir is a term that means harming oneself seriously by hitting the head on other parts or by means a violent way or by means of a blade to mourn Imam Hussein and his household.

It is haram because it is a form of hurting the body. It is totally impressible whether it leads to death or not.

It is even more impressible if it tarnishes the sect and weaken its status. Thus, it can never be part of the acts of worship or a means of mourning the Imam.
