Muharram the first month of the Islamic year is great
Second holiest month after Ramadan month- a treat
Muharam not a festival but a month long fasting
Almost mourning over Immam Hussain’s valiant death.
On Ashura, Muhammad’s grandson, Imman Hussain,
Died fighting in the Battle of Karbala almost fourteen
Centuries ago naturally a sad event mourned by all
Fasting , praying and mourning the day is spent all over.
Day differs among Shias and Sunnis in principle
All pious and devoted Muslims Allah’s disciples
And of course on the sighting of the moon in the month
But a day sacred and holy all observing with faith.
