Using Musical Instruments in Religious Mourning Ceremonies

question| What is the rule concerning the use of musical instruments, such as the organ, in religious mourning ceremonies?
answer| The use of musical instruments is unbefitting the ceremonies held to mourn the martyrdom of Imām Ḥusayn and the other Holy Infallibles. It is best to execute mourning ceremonies in the customary manner in which they have traditionally been held.
