Muharram 2024: Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar and one of the four holy months during which combat is prohibited. Muharram is the holiest month after Ramadan.

Different Muslim communities mark this anniversary in different ways. Muharram is regarded by some Muslims as a month of mourning that honors the Battle of Karbala. Although Muharram is predominantly an Islamic holiday, those of other faiths are welcome to participate in or observe Muharram celebrations in India.

History of Muharram

The tenth day of Muharram is observed by Muslims both Sunni and Shia in India and around the world. Muharram is often regarded as a month of sorrow among Shia Muslims. On this day in Muharram, 680 CE, Imam Hussain passed away and bloodshed erupted at Kerbala. The Prophet Muhammad’s grandson is Imam Hussain. On the 10th of Muharram, which also happened to be the day an Egyptian pharaoh and his warriors perished in the Red Sea later in time, Muslims believe that God created Adam and Eve.

The Shia Muslim community observes Muharram as the time when they remember and grieve the death of Hazrat Imam Hussain. Mourning begins on the first night of Muharram and lasts for the following two months and eight days. The first ten days of the festival are given more weight than the rest. On the first day of Muharram, the community dresses in black and offers prayers. Black is regarded as the hue of mourning. Shia Muslims conduct street processions on the tenth day.
