Babak Sedighi

Khorram Abad, Iran

Women pray during Ashura. The day of Ashura is observed by Shi'a (Shiite) Muslims at the end of a period of mourning for the martyrdom of Hussein ibn Ali, the grandson of the Muhammad who died at the Battle of Karbala (680 CE). Grand processions, religious sermons, charity work and most notably, self-flagellation and displays of intense grief, are all traditions of Ashura.
