Muharram mourning ceremonies for the Chief of Martyrs, Aba Abdollah al-Hussein (peace be upon him) were held in the Holy Iraqi city of Karbala, on the 10th day of Muharram to mark his Martyrdom anniversary. The choice made by Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) and his small group of family members and companions (peace be upon them) to sacrifice themselves  for sake of Allah, has acted as a source of inspiration for not just Muslims but for all of humanity.
