A Little Iraqi Imitates Religious Ritual (Cute...Yes, I said 'cute.')

A little Iraqi boy imitates what he's probably seen, mat'am, ritual beating of the chest performed by many Twelver Shi'i Muslims as part of the mourning rituals associated with 'Ashura, the commemoration of the martyrdom of their third religious leader or imam, Husayn bin 'Ali, in 680 C.E. This is a very heartwarming, cute video clip which shows that little children will imitate what they see.
