  1. Salaams Ya Ali Madad I was fortunate enough to spend Ashura in the Holy Land of Kerbala this year, it was my first visit to Kerbala and being from Pakistani descent, there were many things I saw of the majority of the people in Kerbala (Iraqi's) which I had not seen before. One such thing is on the days leading up to Ashura, the Iraqi julooses would have what we in Pakistan refer to as a taboot or shabih, generally it was quite big and had lights lighting it up, sometimes it was shaped like a large boat and at other times it was smaller. I just wanted to ask if anyone knew what the symbolism behind these are and more so I saw that these shabihs would be spun at points of the juloos, especially when entering the haram in front of the zari. As in the Pakistani culture there are many things we do which other cultures would see as unordinary but we know the symbolisms and reasons behind such actions, in the same way I just wanted to ask what the symbolisms behind the action of these shabihs are. Thank you
