Mourning processions commemorate day of al-Qassem son of Imam Hassan, peace be upon them, in holy Karbala

During the sacred month of Muharram, there are many rituals that embody the tragedy that befell Imam Hussein, his family and his honorable companions.

Among these rituals is that the first ten days of the sacred month of Muharram are each dedicated to each one of the members of the Imam’s family (peace be upon them); who have sacrificed their lives and shed their blood for the sake Allah the Almighty and to support Imam Hussein (peace be upon him).

So each day a member of this holy family is commemorated to show his position and virtues, although the Imam and all the members of his family and companions were killed on the tenth day of Muharram.

Among those nights and days, the night and day of al-Qassem son of Imam al-Hassan (peace be upon them), commemorated by the followers of Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them) by recalling the courage of this young man, in memory of his heroic action to defend his beloved uncle Imam Hussein (peace be upon him).

The mourning processions commemorate on the eve and day of al-Qassem son of al-Hassan (peace be upon them) with rituals they have practiced for hundreds of years, as the mourners in the processions march while wearing white clothes and carrying candles.
