Ashoura I

Child in the special cloths to remember imam Hossein kid at the day of Ashoura

Ya (Hey) Hossein!

In the month of Moharram 61 AH (approx. 20 October 680 AD), an event took place in Iraq at a place known as Kerbala on the bank of the river Euphrates. A large army which had been mobilised by the Umayyad regime besieged a group of persons numbering less than a hundred and put them under pressure to pay allegiance to the Caliph of the time and submit to his authority. The small group resisted and a severe battle took place in which they were all martyred.It appeared at that time that like hundreds of similar events, this battle would be recorded in history and forgotten in time. However, the events that occurred on the 10Th day of Moharram in Karbala were to become a beacon and an inspiration for future generations...
Ashoura is exactly the Revolution of Justice against Evil
