Mumineen should observe ‘laagan’ on Aashura day. Laagan is like roza in the sense that we refrain from all food and drink from dusk to dawn, but the niyyat is of laagan – that is refraining from food and drink in remembrance of the thirst and hunger of Imam Husain SA and his Ahle Bayt and Ashaab. In the afternoon children should be given a small snack so that they have strength for maatam. 

Mumineen should observe all adab of Majlis as they do in Masjid and immerse themselves throughout the day in the remembrance and grieving of Imam Husain SA. The full day should be spent in remembrance and mourning, in any spare time Mumineen should pray Ya Sayyida al-Shuhadaa’i marsiya and Fulkul Husain and do tasbeeh of Imam Husain SA 128 times (as per the adad of Husain – just as Ali is 110).
