Muharram (19th September 2020 to 20th September 2020) - This is usually a sorrowful occasion for Shia Muslims. They observe this day by walking barefoot on the roads and weep loudly as an act of mourning for Hussain and his family. Many of them beat their chest with their hands as an act of matam. However, the Sunni Muslims keep fast in the month of Muharram and celebrate it as a low affair.
