A Sacred Period of Remembrance

Ashara Mubaraka, also known as the “Ten Days of Muharram,” is a profoundly significant period for Dawoodi Bohras. It’s a time for deep reflection and remembrance, as we commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS) and his companions at the Battle of Karbala in 680 CE. This pivotal event in Islamic history represents the eternal struggle between truth and injustice, and the unwavering commitment to one’s faith.
