Tasua 2014

Today was Tasua, the 9th of Muharram and Ashura is coming on tomorrow.

As Tasua and Ashura in Iran are vacations, people can freely take part in the commemorating processions held in mosques, the holy shrines or in the streets to mark the martyrdom anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)’s grandson, Imam Hussein (PBUH), and his companions.

Some people also hold mourning ceremonies at their homes and invite their neighbors and friends.

Here are some photos were taken today in Kish island and Ardabil in Iran:
