Muharram/Ashoura/Yamsé Festival

The battle of Karbala fought in 680 A.D, is regarded as one of the most horrifying events in the history of Islam.  This event is commemorated the world over by Muslims during the first ten days of the first month of (Muharram) of the Islamic calendar. Hussein, may Allah be pleased with him, Grandson of Prophet Muhammad (P.b.u.h), shines in the galaxy of such heroic souls as Socrates and Jesus who safeguarded the honour of humanity by sacrificing their own lives. The blood that Hussein shed on the battlefield immortalized his name.
