Ashura Shi’ite infants – 2
There were a six-month-old baby who was violently cut his head by Yazid Army on the day of Ashura in Karbala. He was in Imam Hussain’s hands when a three-branched arrow was thrown to him by Harmaleh. His name was Ali Asqar, the youngest Imam Hussain’s son who was martyred in thirst.
Therefore, each year during Muharram and Ashura, Muslim people participate in mourning ceremonies to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain and all 72 of his companions and family members while they preferably dress their infants in such a way to memorize Ali Asqar (PBUH).
In addition, there are a special ceremony during Muharram in Iran and other country for mothers and their babies to mourn for Hazrat Ali Asqar.
I found the following image very interesting: a girl with her doll dressing in green…
