Swedish website features life of Imam Hussein (AS), Ashura

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - A website in the Swedish language has been launched to introduce the life and virtues of Imam Hussein (AS), the third Shia Imam, to Swedish speakers.

The Imam Ali (AS) Islamic Center in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, has created it on the occasion of the lunar Hijri month of Muharram.

Those visiting the website can also learn about different aspects of the day of Ashura and the Battle of Karbala.

During Muharram, the Islamic Center also organizes mourning ceremonies every evening with the participation of the devotees of Ahl-ul-Bayat (AS).

Every year in Muharram, the first month in the lunar Hijri calendar, Shia Muslims and many others around the world hold ceremonies to mourn the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (AS) and his faithful companions on the day of Ashura, the tenth day of Muharram.

They were martyred by the forces of Yazid, the tyrant ruler of the time, in the Battle of Karbala in 680 AD.
