People observe Tasou’a in Tehran Bazzar in Honour of Imam Hossein

People got together in the Grand Bazaar of Tehran in large mourning processions to observe the day of Tasou’a and mark the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, the third Shia Imam.

The ninth day of the Muslim-calender month of Muharram is called Tasou’a.

Every year during the first 10 days of Muharram, Iranians mark the martyrdom of Imam Hussein and his companions, who were killed by the forces of the tyrannical ruler of the time on the plains of the modern-day Iraqi city of Karbala around 1400 years ago.
