HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Azaao Bani Assad is commemorated on
Moharram 13 across the globe to mark the burial of Chief of Martyrs
Al-Imam Al-Hussein bin Ali (AS) and his 72 faithful companions.
Clan of Bani Assad on insistence of their women stood for burial of
Karbala martyrs. Despite being chained by Yazidi forces, Al-Imam Zein
Al-Abidin (AS) by the will of Allah came to bury his respected father
Sibtor Rasol Hussein bin Ali (AS) because an infallible (ma’soum)
could not be buried except by a infallible.
Marking the occasion, big mourning processions and majalis were
held in the holy city of Karbala.
A procession attended by black dressed men, women and children was
taken out. It went to Baab-i-Qiblah Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS), and then
culminated at the holy shrines of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS) and his
brother Al-Abbas bin Ali (AS) amid cries and wails of men and women on
the mazlumiah of Ahli Beit (AS).
Meanwhile, majalis were also held.
