Muharram, the beginning of the Islamic New Year brings along an atmosphere of mourning and commemoration throughout the Shiite world. Unlike in other community's traditions, Shias commemorate the Islamic New Year in a unique manner, understood and comprehended by those who are aware of the tragedy that had befallen on the grandson and the family of the Holy Prophet of Islam in the plains of Kerbala, Iraq in 61 AH. A famous quote by English Historian, Edward Gibbon:

"In a distant age and climate the tragic scene of the death of Hussain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader." (English historian and member of parliament), [The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire]
