Moharram, known as ‘Sham-i-Gharibaan’ in memory of Hazret-e-Zeinab Al-Kobra
(a.s.), daughter of Hazret-e-Fatimeh (a.s.) and Hazret-e-Ali Al-Mortaza
(a.s.), mourning processions and majalis were held in Holy Qom - the
City of Karima-i-Ahl-i-Beit Hazret-e-Masumeh (a.s.).
After Maghreb and Eshaa prayers, the processions were taken out led by
clerics. The participants while holding candles in their hands were
beating their chests and chanting Nohay in grief.
The processions ended at the holy shrine of Hazret-e-Fatimeh Al-Masumeh
(a.s.) where majalis were held and seena-zany was performed. The
mourners extended their condolences to the Karima-i-Ahl-i-Beit (a.s.)
