On the Day of Ashura, men and boys cover themselves in mud in a ritual called Kharrah Mali. They dry the mud by a fire before flagellating themselves. Shia Muslims all over the world mourn the slaying of Imam Hussain, grandson of the Prophet Mohammed, during the first month of the Islamic calendar, called Muharram.
