Religious Holidays Quiz:

Does the beginning of the Muslim year have any particular significance?

  • During the first ten days of the month of Muharram, Muslims reflect on a variety of spiritual themes.
  • During Muhammad's time the community observed a one-day fast on the 10th of the month ('Ashura, pronounced aaSHOOrah).
  • In more traditional Shi'a villages, people still gather to reenact the events in a "passion play" called the Ta'ziya (pronounced ta'ZEEyah).
