S5 E11: The One About Ashura

Updated: May 24, 2022


Now, I don't have any inside knowlege (other than what AQA have released) but I think Ashura is going to come up in the GCSE exam, and might even be the 12-marker... So this chat with Zam Hussain will give your children so much RICH KNOWLEDGE about this commemoration. What is it and what is the story behind it. Is it a festival or a commemoration, how do different Muslims spend this day, why is it still so important in the 21st century? This day is a wonderful antedote to toxic masculinity - for young Shia Muslims to grow up watching male adults cry and express emotion, and a very poignant discussion in the context of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"Every day is Ashura, every land is Karbala"
