Banner replacement ceremonies of Imam Hussain and al-Abbas Holy Shrines


Karbala’s holy shrines are replacing the two banners atop the Imam Hussain and al-Abbas holy domes signifying the start of the month of Muharram, in the annual ceremony held at Imam Hussain Holy Shrine attended by public, religious, official figures and hundreds of thousands of Ahlulbayt lovers from around the country. 

The holy shrines in Karbala, as well as around the country and in Iran, have been covered in black for the coming two months of Muharram and Safar. In addition, Islamic centers, Husseiniyahs and houses of Shia Muslims have been covered with black cloth and slogans related to the eternal event of Ashura. 

On behalf of ShiaWaves, we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the entire Shia nation for the start of the months of grief.
