Muharram is observed as a new year according to Islamic lunar calender that is celebrated in the commemoration of Imam Husain. Husain was a grandson of Prophet Mohammad and was killed in the Karbala battle along with his family and followers. He died for strongly supporting the rights of Muslim community and fought in the first ten days of Muharram, now celebrated as a period of mourning and staying away from all joyful occasions by Shia Muslims. Along with Husain, Ali (son-in-law of Prophet) and his elder son Hassan also demised in the battle on the tenth day, and the day is also marked as Ashura. According to Hadiths, it is a celebration of peace and happiness for Sunni Muslims, as they got liberation from the slavery of Egyptians in the period of Muharram.
