Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. The battle of Karbala was fought in this month in 680 AD. On 10th Muharram, Prophet Muhammad’s (SAW) grandson Hazrat Hussain (RA_ was martyred by Yazid’s army. During this period, some Muslims observe fast. Some refrain from eating non-veg food during the first days of the holy month.
