The Importance of the Day of Ashura

The Day of Ashura which is commemorated on the 10th day of the first month of the Islamic calendar is marked annually by Muslims world-wide. Ashura means the 10th day and while the start of a new year is usually celebrated, Ashura is a day of mourning and sadness, similar to how Good Friday is a day of grief for Christians.
