The Maharam-An Essay

Introduction: The Maharam is a great festival for the Muslims of the Shia sect. It is commemorated in memory of the tragic death of Hussain, the grandson of Prophet Mohammed. Hussain was the son of the prophet Hazrat Muhammad’s daughter Fatima.

The Story: Hazrat Mohammed, the great Prophet had two grandchildren named Hasan and Hussain. Hasan became the Caliph (religious leader) of the Muslims but his enemy poisoned him to death. 

Hussain then became the Caliph but his enemy, the Caliph of Damascus, captured his throne. Hussain gathered an army and marched to fight his enemy.  Husain and his followers gathered and stayed for ten days in the plain called Karbala on the banks of the river Euphrates. There the Caliph of Damascus sent an army under Yazid.  The army of Yazid seized Hussain and his men all around. Consequently, a deadly battle took place between the army of Hussain and the army of Yazid. Hussain’s army was defeated at the hand of his enemies. Most of his soldiers were killed and  Hassain was also killed on the tenth day of the month of Maharam. Since then, Muslims have been celebrating the festival in memory of  Hassan and Hussain.

Description: The festival begins on the first day of Amavasya in the month of Maharam (Arabic month)  and ends on the tenth day. During the Maharam days, Muslims express sorrow for Hasan and Hussain and they also fast for ten days. On the tenth day, they make a little frame of bamboo covered with coloured paper. It is called a ‘grave’. They fight fakes with clubs and swords in memory of the battle of Karbala. Then the frame of bamboo is taken from one place to another and is thrown into water on the tenth day. After this, the Muslims break their fast. On this occasion, food and alms are given to the poor and sweetmeats are distributed to all the people gathered there.

Conclusion: Along with celebrating Maharam, Muslims should be inspired by the great teachings of Islam. 0 0 0
