Ashura: 10th day of the Islamic month Muharram
Ashura is an important Islamic day that occurs on the tenth day of Muharram, the first month in the Islamic lunar calendar. Ashura marks the death of Husayn ibn Ali, a grandson of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and members of his immediate family in the Battle of Karbala. Shia Muslims commemorate the tragedy with commemorative processions and other mourning rituals. In some countries, and notably Iran, the event has acquired a political dimension.
