Kabul Husseini procession pays homage to Karbala Martyrs

By: Rafiullah

KABUL, Afghanistan: Marasem-e-azadari were continued in Afghanistan marking the matchless sacrifices of Holy Prophet (s.w.)’s grandson Hazret-e-Imam Hussain (a.s.).

Majales-e-aza, that began on the eve of Muharram 1, are held on daily basis at mosques and husseiniyaat in all cities and towns of the country including capital Kabul, Herat, Mazar Sharif and Kandahar attended by flocks of husseini mourners.

On Friday, Jan. 26, a massive Muharram procession was taken out in Kabul. Thousands participated, recited marasi and nohay, and pounded their chests and heads over the great sufferings of Hazret-e-Imam Hussein bin Ali (a.s.) chanting “Ya Hussein Ya Hussein”.

Mourners paid homage to the Chief of Martyrs Hazret-e-Imam Hussein (a.s.), who irrigated and nourished the tree of Islam with his holy blood, by performing zanjeer-zeni (beating backs and chests with sharp knives attached to chains).
