Religous Mourning for the death of Imam Husayn ( The 3rd Shitte prophit ) in about 1400 years ago , who was killed by Yazid ben Moavieh ( The king of Arabs Fundimentalism ) with his 72 solidiers infront of Yazid army ( about 10,000 ) while they were kept thirsty for a while ...
After that the shitte muslims every year made military movement for his blood feedback & finaly played a big role in the Omavi kingdom down ... inspite of military movements the shittes every year for reminding his death in god way ( Shahid ) , mourn & cry for his braveness ... Still where ever there is a Shitte comunity , you can see them mourn for Imam Husayn after 1400 years ...
This picture is taken on the Shame Ghariban night when in Iran people light candles @ the night right after his death ( he was killed @ noon right after Azan ( muslim Canticle ) started )... This photo is not showing everything ... a friend of mine who is lighting a candle on his hand for respecting death of Imam Hussein ... I should mention that this is not a routine method of lighting candles for him & he is doing this every year as something to attract people & photographers ( SPECIALY GIRLS :) )...
