MIRPUR (AJK)

All is set to observe Youm-e-Ashur, the 10th of Muharramul Haram with sanctity and reverence here on Friday (today) to renew the unwavering resolve to fight against all types of tyrannical forces and for the sake of rightness and justice besides accomplishing the cherished mission to take to the lofty level - the glory of Islam, in all circumstances.

The significant day will dawn with special prayers by the faithful at all mosques and Imambargahs at Fajr in all eight districts of Azad Jammu Kashmir. Processions of Alam and Zul’jinnah will be taken out from Imambargahs which, after passing through traditional routes, will culminate at their fixed spots.

A number of social and political organizations as well as individuals will establish stalls and sabeels of juices and sweet water on the processions’ route to facilitate the faithful in every nook and corner of the AJK. Recalling the martyrdom of Hazarat Imam Hussain (AS), Ulema and Zakerin during the course of procession will deliver special speeches highlighting the great essence of the day. The event of Karbala inspires us to uphold the glory of Islam coupled with the renewed pledge and resolve  that we should not hesitate to render any sacrifice  for the lofty ideals of Islam. Though the 10th of Muharram, the Ashura, is very important for diverse reasons, nevertheless, it gains special impact as Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS)’s martyrdom and the event of Karbala also took place on this day.
