Chhadi Procession in Udaipur

There were 13 chhadis and 18 alams in the procession carried out by different groups representing their area/society.

The procession of Chhadi Mubarak is highly regarded in Sunni Muslim community of Udaipur. It is believed that  7th of Muharram  was the day when the army of yazid blocked water supply to Imam Hussain and his family, particularly this was the day when an official announcement of war was declared by yazid after several failed negotiation attempts with Prophet Muhammad’s grandson Imam Hussain.

Another important aspect of this day was the Martyrdom of Hazrat-e- Qasim ibne Imam Al Hasan who was a nephew of Imam Hussain and son of Imam Hasan. Hazrat-e-Qasim was merely 14 year old who accompanied Imam Hussain in battle of Karbala.

Many Muslims traditionally tie wish knot on Chhadi Mubarak and recite Quran’s verses.

Imam Hussain was martyred on 10th of Muharram which is known as day of Ashura.
