Ashura in Kirkuk and Khanaqin

Ashura is an important date in the Islamic calendar that occurs on the tenth day of Muharram, the first month in the Islamic lunar calendar. Ashura marks the martyrdom of Imam Husayn ibn Ali, a grandson of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and members of his immediate family in the Battle of Karbala in the seventh century. Shia Muslims commemorate the tragedy with commemorative processions and  mourning rituals. The Day of Ashura is recognised by millions across the world to remember Hussain’s dignified stand for social justice.
