The day before Ashura 2015: Tasua in pictures

Today is Tasua

The day before Ashura is called Tasua which is the 9th day of Muharram. Shia muslims and other people from different religions, try to commemorate this day more than the first eight days of Muharram as Tasua is attributed to mourn for Imam Hussain’s brother,  Hazrat Abbas (PBUH), although he was martyred on the day of Ashura  like the other Imam Hussain’s companions.
