during Muhurram, water or sherbat is served
The Mourning of Muharram, Remembrance of Muharram, or Muharram Observances, is a set of rituals associated with Shia Islam, which takes place in Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar. The event marks the anniversary of the Battle of Karbala when Imam Hussein ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad, was killed. Family members, accompanying Hussein ibn Ali, were killed or subjected to humiliation by not giving even a drop of water. Hence, during Muhurram, water or sherbat is served. Following the article 51-A (e) which provides that it shall be the duty of Citizen of India to promote harmony and the spirit of common brotherhood amongst all the people of India transcending religious, linguistic and regional or sectional diversities, Anam Prem distributes Sherbat on the eve of Muhurrum.
