Slideshow: Ashura, the Unique Face of Shia Islam

Atop many traditional Shia displays, you’ll find a decorative ornament shaped like a hand, known as an alam. Each finger represents one of the five figures Shias revere most: Prophet Mohammad; his daughter Fatima; his cousin Ali (also Fatima’s husband); and their two sons, Hasan and Hussein. Shias believe Ali was the rightful successor to the prophet and that only his descendants could assume the caliphate, a belief that would culminate in the Battle of Karbala. (Photo: Mohamed Sabur)
