TEHRAN (IQNA) – A mourning ceremony was held at the Imam Khomeini Husseinya in Tehran in the presence of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei ahead of the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Zahra (SA).


At the ceremony, held on Friday, Hojat-ol-Islam Aali highlighted the virtues of Hazrat Zahra (SA), and Hojat-ol-Islam Nasser Shahidi recited elegies.

Earlier this week, the office of Ayatollah Khamenei said this year there will be no public mourning ceremony for the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Zahra (SA) at the Imam Khomeini Husseinya, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the need to observe the health protocols.

Shia Muslims and others in different parts of the world hold ceremonies every year on the first days of the month of Jumada al-Thani in the lunar Hijri calendar to mourn the martyrdom anniversary of the beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

This year the anniversary of the martyrdom of Hazrat Zahra (SA) falls on Sunday, January 17.
