The Leader of the islamic Movement in Nigeria, led the hoisting of a black flag on the dome of Husainiyyah Baqiyyatullah zaria on Friday the 1st of Muharram 1426 (24/10/14). The flag was donated to the Islamic Movement from the holy shrine of imam Husain (alaihis salam), Karbala, Iraq.
Hundreds of thousands witnessed the event from far as the red flag on the dome of the Husainiyyah was replaced with the black flag with inscription of ‘ ya Husain’ on it. This, heralded the beginning of Ashura Mourning gathering at Husainiyyah.
