Mombasa Marks Ashura with a Street Procession

Coastweek -- On Thursday 20th September 2018, the 10th Day of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic Calendar (also known as the Day of Ashura), Muslims and Christians, men, women and children of all ages, marched through the streets of Mombasa in a procession to mark the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (AS), the grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his progeny).

This procession was organized by the Khoja Shia Ithna-asheri Muslim community of Mombasa.

The procession began from Jaffery Islamic Centre and proceeded through Nyerere Avenue, Digo Road and along Jomo Kenyatta Avenue before finally coming to an end at the Khoja Shia Ithna-asheri cemetery along Mwembe Tayari Road.

Other members of the Abrahamic faith were also present in the march to show solidarity and support enhancing the message of peace and love, as well as portraying a universal cry against injustice and oppression.

Mahatma Ghandhi, the famous Indian anti-colonial leader, once said, “The progress of Islam does not depend on the use of the sword but on the supreme sacrifice of Husayn.

I learnt from Husayn how to achieve victory whilst being oppressed.”

This, to put it succinctly, is why Muslims all over the world commemorate the event of Ashura.
