Moharram is also one of the four sacred months of the Islamic calendar and its significance is indicated by its name. The word ‘Muharram’ literally translates to the meaning ‘forbidden’ i.e., it’s such a sacred month that certain actions become forbidden during it, as they might violate its sanctity.
