The Mourning of Muharram, Remembrance of Muharram, or Muharram Observances, is a set of rituals associated with Shia Islam, which takes place in Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar. Many of the events associated with the ritual take place in congregation halls known as Majlis / Hussainia.
The event marks the anniversary of the Battle of Karbala when Imam Hussain ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, and a Shia Imam, was killed by the forces of the second Umayyad caliph Yazid at Karbala. Family members, accompanying Hussain ibn Ali, were killed or subjected to humiliation. The commemoration of the event during yearly mourning season, from first of Muharram to twentieth of Safar with Ashura comprising the focal date, serves to define Shia communal identity. At present, Muharram Observances are carried out in the entire World.
We have been gathering a rich collection of Majlis by Ulema e Haq and historians like Ayatollah Syed Aqeel ul Gharavi, Maulana Sadiq Hasan, Moulana Ali Murtaza Zaidi, Maulana Zaki Baqari, Maulana Salman Turabi, Maulana Zaigham Rizvi and Sayed Ammar Nakshawani.
We aim to become the biggest video library of Shia Muslim’s Majlis collection, in Sha Allah soon!
