History of the Ashura
The festival of Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. It is considered the second holiest month after Ramzan. About 14 centuries ago, Ashura is the day that Imam Husain Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad was martyred. Believed to be the third Imam of the Shia community, he was killed in 680 AD during the battle of Karbala (in present-day Iraq), by the soldiers of the Caliph Yazid. Since then, Imam Hussein’s and his relatives’ death is mourned among the Muslim community.
How to celebrate this day by the Muslims of the world
The 10th day of Muharram is observed differently by Shia and Sunni Muslims all over the world. According to the Islamic Calendar, during the first 10 days of the Muharram months. On that day, the Shia sect observes a fast to mourn the death of Imam Hussein, and his family members and to honor the sacrifices made in the Battle of Karbala (in present-day Iraq). Shia Muslims also refrain from attending and celebrating all joyous events in this period.
Many Shias observe this day by participating in processions and self-flagellation. Mourners use sharp objects such as knives or chains which have blades attached to them and other weapons in acts of self-flagellation while chanting ‘Ya Hussain’ loudly.
Sunni Muslims, on the other hand, observe this day with a fast that lasts from sunrise to sunset. They also hold gatherings to remember the sacrifices of Imam Hussein and attend special prayers in mosques.
