At time of praying pilgrims stop walking and prepare for it, as same as their leader Imam hussain (AS).

In Ashura day one by one each companion of the Imam went and died until noon when Saeed ibn Abullah al Bijilly came forward and informed the Imam that it was prayer time. Battle was raging, arrows were coming towards the Imam’s camp, how could they have formed lines for prayers.

But they stood in single foil to perform their last prayers while two companions of the Imam Saeed and Zohair stood in front of this line to hold back all the arrows that were coming towards them. Once the Imam finished the last words of the prayers these two soldiers died of exhaustion. The Last of the companions of the Imam died and only the relatives remained.
