Tour Details

Tasua and Ashura occur on the ninth and tenth days of Muharram, the first month of the Muslim year. The word ‘Tasua’ means ninth, and ‘Ashura’ means tenth in Arabic. Tasua and Ashura commemorate the murder of Imam Husayn and certain members of his family in the year 680AD in Karbala. Virtually, all Muslims respect Imam Husayn as the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. Shia Muslims, however, also venerate him as one of the early 12 imams, or supreme Muslim spiritual leaders. The story of Imam Husayn’s martyrdom is central to Shia Islam and has inspired Shia Muslims to stand up against injustice. Its influence is felt far beyond the month of Muharram.

Muslims in Iran, the vast majority of whom are Shias, commemorate the first ten days of the month of Muharram as a time of grief and lamentation for the killing of Imam Husayn. Many pious adherents wear black during this period to signify the depth of their mourning. Religious processions may occur before Ashura, but the largest and most elaborate ones take place on the tenth of Muharram.

This tour start from Shiraz city, Yazd is next station where Ashura commemorate day magnificently held. After Ashura day(10th of Muharram), continue tour toward Isfahan(Esfahan) city, Kashan and last point city in this tour is Tehran(capital of Iran).

This tour can be arranged for handicapped people, seniors, students, solo travelers. Just contact us.

What to Expect

Hussain ibn Ali was the grandson of Muhammad (the last holy prophet), born in 620 AD. Hussain became a leader who was known widely for his compassion, wisdom and integrity.

The Day of Ashura is mourned and remembered by millions of people across the world as the day Hussain and his supporters were killed in The Battle of Karbala. Today, pilgrims from all across the world visit the shrine of Hussain ibn Ali in Karbala where he is buried, to pay their tribute to his courageous stand.

On the day of Ashura many Muslims partake in large peaceful gatherings where they recite poems in memory of Hussain and his sacrifice whilst lamenting and beating their chest as a cultural tradition to display their grievance. Many people use the day of Ashura as a day to perform acts of kindness and charity as a way for them to keep alive the very same principles and values Hussain gave his life for.

This tour is an opportunity to experience Passionate Ashura in Yazd(Or Ashkezar). Although these rites take place in numerous parts of Iran and you can visit the gangs of mourners in every street, in some cities, they are held much more glorious with more Iranian local foods as Nazri.

There are various traditions such as Ta’ziyeh, a kind of street theater in costume inspired by historical and religious events which happened in Karbala battle about 1400 years ago and Nakhl Gardani, carrying a majestic wooden Nakhl – a symbol of Imam Hussein’s coffin – on the shoulders of mourners.

  • Taziyeh
  • Nakhl Gardani

Day 5Yazd / 08 August 2022(10 Muharram 1444)

The tenth day of Muharram, known as the Day of Ashura, is the most important day of the Mourning as it’s the day of Imam’s martyrdom.

Today is Ashura and you have a chance to experience Passionate Ashura in Yazd. Although these rites take place in numerous parts of Iran and you can visit the gangs of mourners in every street, in some cities including Yazd, they are held much more glorious with more Iranian local foods as Nazri. There are various traditions such as Ta’zieh, a kind of street theatre in the costume inspired by historical and religious events which happened in Karbala battle about 1400 years ago and Nakhl Gardani, carrying a majestic wooden Nakhl – a symbol of Imam Hussein’s coffin – on the shoulders of mourners.

The ceremony in Amir Chakhmaq starts when the heavy decorated Nakhl is carried on the shoulders of hundreds of male mourners, old or young, symbolizing the coffin of Imam Hussein and his martyr companions. This ritual is called NakhlGardani (literally carrying and turning the Nakhl). Almost all the other male mourners gather in the centre and the women in a bigger circle around them and on the rooftop of the buildings nearby. The population is said to reach millions, especially in the nearby town of Taft where so many tourists also visit to watch the ceremony. There are some guys standing on top of the Nakhl, among them, an old Sayyed (descendant of the prophet) chants Ya Hussein and guides the passionate mourners carrying it, so that no one is left under. They turn the Nakhl several times around the square and at the same time the people cry out religious chants.

After the Nakhl-Gardani ritual, people continue mourning and listening to the religious sermons until sundown. After the night prayers, they hold the Sham-e Ghariban (literally the night of the strangers) as candlelight vigil for the martyrs of Karbala. Children often go to different districts holding candles and light up the streets, symbolizing children of Imam Hussein and his companions who search for the corpses in the dark night of the Karbala desert. And that is how and when the massive rituals to observe the first ten days of Muharram end in Yazd.
