Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. This festival starts at the 1st day of Muharram and lasts for 10 days. The festival commemorates the martyrdom of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson- Hazrat Imam Hussein, who killed in the Battle of Karbala in AD 680 with his family and followers. The month of Muharram is held to be the most sacred of all the months, excluding Ramadan. The word Muharram has been derived from ‘haram’ which means “forbidden”.
