  WHY ❓



 The word “ Muharram “ means “Forbidden” and is derived from the word harām, meaning “sinful”. It is held to be the second holiest month, following Ramadan. Some Muslims fast during these days. The tenth day of Muharram is the Day of Ashura, which to Shia Muslims is part of the Mourning of Muharram.


Sunni Muslims fast during this day, because it is recorded in the hadith that Musa (Moses) and his people obtained a victory over the Egyptian Pharaoh on the 10th day of Muharram; accordingly Muhammad asked Muslims to fast on this day that is Ashura and on a day before that is 9th.


They observe and respect Muharram as the month that killed Hussein ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad and son of Ali, in the Battle of Karbala.


The Battle of Karbala took place on Muharram 10, in the year 61 AH of the Islamic calendar (October 10, 680 AD) in Karbala, situated in present-day Iraq. The battle was between a small group of supporters and relatives of Muhammad’s grandson Hussein ibn Ali, and a much larger military detachment from the forces of Yazid I, the Umayyad caliph, to whom Hussein had refused to give an oath of allegiance. Hussein and all his supporters were killed, including Hussein’s six-month-old infant son, The dead are regarded as martyrs by both Sunni and Shia Muslims.


 ???? HOW IT WORKS ⁉ ============================


for more knowledge of earthworm ...clik here

Earthworms are hermaphrodites, so individuals have both female and male organs. They mate by aligning themselves in opposite directions at their gonadal openings and exchanging packets of sperm. Each earthworm will form an egg capsule in its clitellum and pass it into the environment. The egg capsule is golden brown and looks like a tiny lemon the size of a match head. Two to seven Eisenia fetida babies (three, on average) will hatch from an egg capsule in 30 to 75 days. Earth worm life expectancy is approximately 4½ to five years.


Do worms have eyes?

No, not really. Instead, they have cells called receptors that can sense whether it’s light or dark. This allows worms to tell if they’re underground or above ground.


Worms have the ability to regrow lost tissue & can survive losing parts of their body. Mature worms have a swollen gland just below the head, known as a clitellum. If cut below this gland, the worm will be able to regenerate the tissue it has lost.
