It marked the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Zahra (SA).
Hojat-ol-Islam Rafiei delivered a speech at the event, stressing that Hazrat Zahra’s (SA) main effort after the demise of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was promoting Velayat and countering attempts to undermine and deny it.
Also, Hojat-ol-Islam Shahitat recited elegies at the ceremony.
Shia Muslims and others in different parts of the world hold ceremonies every year on the first days of the month of Jumada al-Thani in the lunar Hijri calendar to mourn the martyrdom anniversary of the beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
This year the anniversary of the martyrdom of Hazrat Zahra (SA) falls on Sunday, January 17.
Last week, the office of Ayatollah Khamenei said this year there would be no public mourning ceremony for the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Zahra (SA) at the Imam Khomeini Husseinya, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the need to observe the health protocols.
