Muharram 2020 day of Ashura significance
The term Muharram means ‘forbidden or prohibited’. The different denominations of the Muslim community observe the tenth day of Muharram as per their beliefs. The Sunni Muslims observe a fast because Prophet Muhammed fasted on this day. It is believed that Allah saved the people of Israel from Pharaoh and that Prophet Musa (Moses, according to Judaism) observed a fast on that day. Muslims recite verses from the Holy Quran and offer their prayers.
The Shia Muslims take part in a procession and carry a Tazia (replica of the sacred tomb) of Imam Hussain (Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammed) on this day. It is a period of mourning for them because Husayn ibn Ali was beheaded in the battle of Karbala (a place in modern-day Iraq).
Shia Muslims recall the agony that the Imam went through. They narrate the incident that took place centuries ago to teach their young ones about their great leader who was killed.
People gather in large numbers and the followers of the Imam chant “Ya Hussain” or “Ya Ali”. They pay obeisance to the Imam by beating themselves with sharp weapons, and this ritual is known as Tatbir or Qama Zani.
This year, the processions may not take place owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
So to mark the beginning of Islamic New Year or Hijri New Year, listed here are some needs, quotes, SMS, messages, WhatsApp and Facebook status to share with your mates and household.

According to Prophet Muhhamad fasting on the day of Ashura will kill away all the sins of the previous year. And so, many Muslim followers choose to fast on the ninth and tenth days of this month.
Shia Muslim sects often practice chest-beating, which is referred to as Latyma and some also self-flagellate and cut their foreheads. Sunni Muslims consider Ashura as a day of respect for the Prophet Moses but do not take part in the ritual.
During this solemn time of Muharram, observing Muslims refrain from taking part in joyous events.
It is customary to read Ziarat Ashura – the book containing salutations to the martyrs of Karbala, on the Day of Ashura
Muslims celebrate the new year by visiting the mosque, praying to Allah for well-being and by spending time with their family and near and dear ones on the holiday.

Muharram quotes in urdu
क्या हक अदा करेगा ज़माना हुसैन का
अब तक ज़मीन पर कर्ज़ है सजदा हुसैन का
झोली फैलाकर मांग लो मुमीनो
हर दुआ कबूल करेगा दिल हुसैन का
सिर गैर के आगे न झुकाने वाला
और नेजे पर भी कुरान सुनाने वाला
इस्लाम से क्या पूछते हो कौन हुसैन?
हुसैन है इस्लाम को बनाने वाला
दिल से निकली दुआ है हमारी,
मिले आपको दुनिया में खुशियां सारी,
गम ना दे आपको खुदा कभी,
चाहे तो एक खुशी कम कर दे हमारी.
जन्नत की आरज़ू में
कहां जा रहे हैं लोग
जन्नत तो करबला में
खरीदी हुसैन ने
जो रहना हो चैन से
जीना अली से सीखो
मरना हुसैन से
नज़र गम है नज़रों को बड़ी तकलीफ होती है
बगैर उनके नज़रों को बड़ी तकलीफ होती है
नबी कहते थे अकसर के अकसर ज़िक्र-ए-हैदर से
मेरे कुछ जान निसारों को बड़ी तकलीफ होती है
कत्ल-ए-हुसैन असल में मार्ग-ए-यजीद है
इस्लाम ज़िंदा होता है हर करबला के बाद
सजदा से करबला को बंदगी मिल गई
सबर से उम्मत को ज़िंदगी मिल गई
एक चमन फातिमा का गुज़रा
मगर सारे इस्लाम को ज़िंदगी मिल गई.
