History and Origin of Ashura
Ashura marks the tenth day of the first month of Muharram on the Islamic lunar schedule. The day recognizes for Shia Muslims the demise of Husayn ibn Ali who was the grandson of Muhammad in the Battle of Karbala of October 10, 680 CE. For Sunni Muslims, the day identifies with when Moses and his devotees fled Egypt and where spared by God isolating the Red Sea.
Ashura (Arabic: عاشوراء ) marks the day that Shi’a Muslims trust Husayn, the grandson of Muhammad, was martyred. For Sunni Muslims, it denotes the day that Moses was spared from the Pharaoh’s oppression.
Ashurah is the tenth day of the Islamic month of Muharram. “Ashurah” is the holiest day as per the Prophet Muhammad’s buddy Ibn ‘Abbas (cited in Abu Dawud). At the point when the Prophet Muhammad moved to Madinah, he found that the Jews of Madinah fasted on the tenth day of Muharram. The Jews accepted the Prophet Musa (Moses), and his supporters crossed the Red Sea and the Pharaoh was suffocated in its waters on this day. After hearing this from the Jews, Muhammad, stated, “We are more firmly identified with Musa than you” and guided the Muslims to quick upon the arrival of Ashura.
