Shia Muslims observe it as a day of mourning to commemorate the death of the Prophet Mohammad’s grandson, Hussayn Ibn Ali. According to legends, Imam Hussayn once objected to caliph Yazid’s legitimacy and revolted against him. The objection not only led to Karbala’s battle and the beheading of the revolutionary leader but also the imprisonment of his family on the day of Ashura in 680 AD. Sunni Muslims believe that on the 10th day of Muharram the religious leader Moses led Israel through the Red Sea and got victory over the Egyptian Pharaoh and his army of war chariots.

Why do Muslim Peoples celebrate Muharram?
The ten-day of Muharram called Ashura is an important day for Muslims. It marks the day Nuh (Noah) left the Ark, and the day that Prophet Musa (Moses) was saved from the Pharaoh of Egypt by God, crossing the Red Sea with his people.
Sunni and Shia both Muslims observe Muharram differently. Most of the Sunni Muslims of the world, observe this day at the beginning of the Islamic New Year and symbolizes peace and reflection.
This month presents a glorious presence in the history of Islam for all Muslims who follow the politics of Islam. For the Shia Muslims, Hazrat Muharram commemorates the death of Husain Ali, the grandson of Hazrat Muhammad. After questioning the legitimacy of the Caliph Yazid, Hussain was killed during the battle of Karbala on the day of Ashura.
Due to the brutality of the battle and the murder of the Prophet’s grandson during a month when fighting is forbidden, many Shia mourn and remember the bravery of the Prophet’s family.
