Faces of Ashoora

Outside Matam Zabar 7th Muharram

Marching band, renewing a musical tradition

Unfortunately I managed to get to the candle just as it burnt out. Measuring 73 metres in length this candle entered the Guiness Book of Records, in addition, 6000 males called Hussain had the pleasure of lighting the candles. 10th night of Muharram.

Ba9mat alwalaa2 lalhussain.... a world record number of fingerprints on a banner that reads "labayka ya hussain" which will be sent to Karbala
