Ashura is an important day in the Muslim calendar for both Sunni and Shi'a Muslims the world over. For Sunnis it celebrates victory, while for Shi'ites it is a particularly poignant and sorrowful day of mourning for Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad, who Shi'a and Alawite Muslims consider to be Muhammad's murdered successor. Many Shi'ite Muslims spend Ashura in deep thought, prayer, or on a pilgrimage to Husayn's shrine in Iraq.
