AS-SANABES, Bahrain: Majales wa Mawakeb al-azaiyah, or
the mourning sittings and gatherings continued in Bahrain in memory of
Chief of Martyrs Al-Imam Abi Abdellah Al-Hussein (A) who rendered
supreme sacrifice to defend Islam and Shariah some 1,400 years ago in
the plain of Karbala.
Processions were held on 11 Moharram to commemorate
the night of Wahsha, the night after Ashura when Sayyedah Zaynab Al-Olyaa
(a.s.), daughter of Al-Imam Ali (A) took the duty of guarding Hussaini
women and children after their camps were set on fire and their
articles were looted by Yazidi forces following the unjust slaughter
of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (A).
Azao Bany Assad was held on 13 Moharram, the day when
Bany Assad men stood for burial of the Karbala martyrs.
