Ashura infants on the international day of Hazrat Ali Aghar

Today, Iranian Shia Muslims marked the international day of Hazrat Ali Asghar, Imam Hussain’s six-month-old son who was martyred violently on the day of Ashura in Karbala. Each year in Muharram,  women with their infants participate in the great mourning ceremonies to commemorate his martyrdom.
