Mourning or Salvation?

The day of Ashura, the tenth day of the Islamic month Muharram, has been celebrated throughout Islamic history mostly as a day of salvation. However, especially with the matrydom of Hussein and his people at Karbala, the day has gained a political dimension and become a day of mourning for especially the Shii.

It is important to make room for these traditions in our world by understanding their meaning, purpose and reflections in the religious and cultural life throughout history, which still make up an important part of our lives even in the 21st century.

With this intention would like to make our subject this week the Day of Ahsura and the history behind this day.
