Holy Ashura on Sept 21

UNB

Holy Ashura, commemorating the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA), will be observed in the country on September 21 as the Muharram moon was not sighted in Bangladesh sky yesterday, reports UNB. The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee held at the conference room of Islamic Foundation's Baitul Mukarram office after reviewing reports on the sighting of the Muharram moon. The Arabic month of Zilhaj will end on September 11 and the counting of Muharram will begin on September 12, said an Islamic Foundation press release. Holy Ashura is observed on 10th of Muharram in the Hijri year commemorating the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA), grandson of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SM).

On this day in the Hijri year of 61, Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) along with his family members and 72 followers embraced the martyrdom in the hands of soldiers of Yazid at the desert of Karbala to uphold the teachings of the Prophet (SM).
