Beyond. In Morocco, I snapped this photo of a tower. Though I focused my camera on the tower, it wouldn’t have been half as interesting without all of the houses, roofs, textures, colors, and action happening beyond the tower. Hopefully your eye was drawn to the rest of the picture as I hoped it would be. 

Do you have a photo which invites the viewer to look beyond? Are there hidden depths in the background? Is the focal point just a framing for the rest of the picture? If it’s not clear why we should look beyond, tell us! Lead us through the story in your photo by Sara Rosso on January 18, 2013

Hazrat Imam Hussain Ibn Ali (RA), a grandson of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH).Imam Hussain (RA) along his follower were martyred in the desert in Iraq in 680 ( 1329 years ago) by these soldiers of Yazid at Karbala while fighting for establishing truth in the society. The day is observed in the Muslim world as a symbol of “sacrifice and mourning” recalling the martyrdom.

The word Ashura means simply “tenth in Arabic, and therefore the name of the remembrance, literally translated, means “the tenth day”.Shi’a Muslims bring out the largest procession known as Tazia in the city from Imam Bara at Hosenee Dalan of Old Dhaka. The significance and message of holy Ashura inspire to raise voice against injustice and oppression and also to follow the path of truth and justice.
