Shia Iranian girls and women who are following Lady Zeinab, all covered with Chador and with a complete Hijab commemorated the martyrdom anniversary of the holy prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shiite Imam, Imam Hussain by taking part in processions and ceremonies held on the day of Ashura 2016 in Iran.
The day of Ashura falls on the 10th of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calender.
Every year, in the day of Ashura, plenty of people dressed in black, take to street to mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hussein and his companions.
Here is some photos of Iranian shiite Muslims mourning in the day of Ashura in the center of Tehran, Iran.
Mourning in the day of Ashura in the “Great market of Tehran”, a traditional Market in Tehran, Iran.
The month of Muharram and the day of Ashura is coming in less than a week.
I found a video clip trying to show what happened to Imam hussain and his family in the day of Ashura in Karbala. In this clip, you will see some scenes of an Iranian serial titled “Mokhtar Nameh”.
