It is the opening month of the Islamic year and one of the four months declared as sacred by Allah. The month is one of mourning and sorrow. In this month on the tenth day ‘Ashura’ 61 AH (680 CE), Imam Husayn (pbuh), his family, relatives and companions were martyred. Majalis are held in this month to commemorate the tragedy of Karbala, reminding us that the values of Islam as taught by the Prophet (pbuh) must be maintained in their original form.
