Today is the 10th of Moharram, known as Ashura. This is the second year that the mourning ceremonies of Imam Hussein are held mainly in open spaces due to the spread of coronavirus pandemic. Ashura is the day of the greatest epic of history and the most heart-rending catastrophe of mankind, namely, the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (PBUH) and his loyal companions and the captivity of the women and children of his encampment.
