When is Muharram in 2022?

Muharram in 2022 is on the Saturday, 29th of August (29/08/2022).

Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar or specifically the 10th day of the month called Muharram, is when the ceremonial mourning takes place. During this period of mourning, the Shia Muslims commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Hussein Ibn Ali who was the son of Hazrat Ali and the grandson of Prophet Muhammad. Imam Hussein Ibn Ali was killed in the Battle of Karbala in 680 AD.Muharram is a gazetted holiday in India.

Every year, a large number of Shia Muslim pilgrims travel to Karbala (a famous destination of pilgrimage in Iraq) for Ashura on the 10th day of Muharram month. Both Sunni and Shia Muslims mourn during Muharram, although Sunnis do so to a much lesser extent. Storytelling, weeping, self-flagellation and re-enactments of the Battle of Karbala form the crux of the observances. Muharram rituals were often called by European observers "the Feast of Hasan and Hosayn" as the participants shout "Hasan! Hosayn!".
