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]

BMM_Temeke_2The School Year Calendar was planned purposely in that the first 12 days of Muharram are utilized for reflecting and understanding the mission of Imam Husayn (AS), the time was well spent in various activities programmed for each age level.

Black flags were put up all around the campus to mark the commemoration days. There were also the azadari of Seyyedush Shohadah Imam Husayn (AS) with majlises (lectures), hadeeth al Kisaa and Marthiya/Nawha in the local language.

Each day began with assembly where some eulogy was recited for Imam Husayn (AS) along with the daily dua by Imam Sajjad Ali ibn Husayn (AS).
