Ashura 2017 is on Sunday, the 1st of October (1/10/2017).
“Ashura” (/ʌʃuːrʌ /) means “tenth” in Arabic language and the day of Ashura is the 10th day of Muharram(/Mohærræm/), the first month in the Islamic calendar but each year, the day of Ashura falls in a different day in the Georgian calendar as the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and the Georgian calendar is a solar one.
Day of Ashura was the day in which Imam Husayn, and all 72 of his companions were violently killed and beheaded one by one and all their women and children were captured.
Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam who prophet Muhammad had stated about him:
“Hussain is from me and I’m from Hussain”
but he was murdered in fifty years following the prophet Muhammad by the people who called themselves Muslim!
Imam Hussain was surrounded by an Army of 30,000 at the land of Karbala on his way to Kufah in the year 61 Hijri (about 680 AD). Paying allegiance to Yazid was the only way for Imam Hussain to survive but Yazid did not believe in prophetess and revelation as he said it openly and his behaviors were against the Islamic rules. Thus there was no way for Imam Hussain except to sacrifice what they had to save Islam from utter distortion and destruction.

Ashura 2016 is on Wednesday, the 12th of October.
The day of Ashura (/ʌʃuːrʌ /) is the 10th day of Muharram(/Mohærræm/) which is the first month in the Islamic calendar. As the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and the Georgian calendar is a solar one, therefore each year, the day of Ashura falls in a different day in the Georgian calendar.
There is no day like Ashura. Day of Ashura marks the day in which thirty thousand people who consider themselves as the followers of the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and who call themselves Muslims, gathered around the prophet’s grandson, Imam Husayn, shed his blood and all 72 of his companions and captured their women and children in more than 14 centuries ago in a land called Karbala.

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).
Self-flagellation is forbidden (Haram) in Islam.

You can see their Fatwas (religious opinions) on tatbir.org

“Practicing Tatbir (i.e.self-flagellation) is one of the wrongdoings. I know that some people would say: “It was better for him not to mention Tatbir.” They would say: “Why do you Read More…
