It is worth noting that Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar, carries immense religious importance among Muslims. Meanwhile, Muharram holds great religious significance for Muslims worldwide, and India is no exception. Each year, Muslims in India observe Muharram with deep devotion. This sacred month marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar and serves as a time for Muslims to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain and his family at Karbala.
During Muharram, Muslims engage in spiritual contemplation and pay homage to the memory of Imam Hussain and his family members who were martyred at Karbala. The dates of Muharram vary in the Gregorian calendar as the Islamic calendar follows the lunar cycle. Generally, countries like Saudi Arabia, Oman, and UAE sight the crescent moon a day before India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Morocco, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia.
