They go to study how Self-flagellation is preformed. These brainless creatures have not contributed to the deen in any way, shape, or form.Qum Iran ka aik shehr hai.
It's kinda like a blessed city in shiaism. Shia students from all across the world go there to study.
When some one want's to find the right path, he start searching for truth, start thinking with rational, which can't happen until one put all his bias aside, and this is the start of right direction.Growing up I wasn't religious at all. I have always been allergic to mullahs. After my father passed away, I began to research religion. I had a Shia friend who asked me if I could accompany him to an Imam Bargah. I went with him and noticed that there was a lot of symbolism and they kept saying Ali Madad (I did not hear them say anything about the first three Khalifas). I told him that I did not agree with their brand of religion. A few years later he took me to the Bargah on 10 Muharam. I saw stuff that is not Islam, they finished the night by walking on hot coals. I spoke with this individual they call Zakir, I told him that Ahlulbayt belong to all Muslims and not just Shias. I am no longer welcomed there and my friend has since become a non-denominational Muslim like me.
