After Ramzan, Muharram is considered to be the second holiest month.

Meanwhile, in Lahore, main Shabeeh e Zuljinah procession of 10th Muharram-ul-Haram was taken out from Nisar Haveli inside Mochi Gate of Old Walled City near midnight last night.

The lesson of the ultimate sacrifice rendered by Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) and his companions is to resist oppression, tyranny and falsehood even at the cost of one's life and under the most trying of circumstances, Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said in his message on the Youm-e-Ashur today (Tuesday). They may also attend special prayer meetings in mosques or private homes.

On this day in the Hijri year of 61, Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA), a grandson of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SM), along with his family members and 72 followers embraced martyrdom at the hands of Yazid's soldiers in the desert of Karbala to uphold the teachings of Prophet (SM). On this, as part of the mourning of Muharram, Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims practice Faqa (partial fasting) on Ashura.

Some Muslims also observe fast on the ninth and tenth day of the month, and a lot of emphasis is laid on gratitude and abstinence.

On the eve of Ashura, known as Tasu'a, mourners remember Abbas ibn Ali (PBUH), Imam Hussein's half-brother, who was martyred shortly before Imam Hussein as he tried to bring water to women and children in Imam's camp, who had had no water to drink for days due to a siege by the enemy forces.

Several of our celebrities took time out from their schedules in respect and remembrance and posted what Ashura meant to them. Some Shia Muslims observe the mourning with blood donation. The Prophet Muhammad used to fast on Ashura in Mecca, where it became a common tradition for the early Muslims. Sunni Muslims commemorate the day through voluntary fasting.

Ashura, the 10th of Muharram is being observed today (Tuesday) with solemnity, to pay homage to Hazrat Imam Hussain and other martyrs of Karbala amid stringent security cover.
