Nasrallah’s speech, scheduled to begin at 8:30 PM Beirut time Monday, will focus on the mourning rituals marking the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (AS), according to al-Alam news network.
Shia Muslims around the world mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS), the Sayyid-ul-Shuhada (master of martyrs), in Muharram, the first month in the lunar Hijri calendar (which will begin on Friday).
The third Shia Imam (AS) and a small group of his followers and family members were martyred by the tyrant of his time - Yazid Bin Moaweya, in the battle of Karbala on the tenth day of Muharram (known as Ashura) in the year 680 AD.
This year, given the COVID-19 pandemic, the mourning processions are going to be held while observing all the health protocols.
The coronavirus outbreak has had a major impact on global sporting, cultural, religious and political events, with a host of events canceled or postponed.
