    The making of ashure is a common practice among Muslim and Christian people in the Middle East. In Turkey, it is customary to prepare ashure at a certain time of the year. Christian communities throughout the Middle East prepare a similar sweet wheat dish, called hedik, amah or qamhiyyi. Ashure prepared at home is shared with the neighbors. Generally people who prepare ashure send a cup to each of the neighbors in their building. As tradition goes the residents of forty houses to your east, west, north and south are considered neighbors. One has responsibility of maintaining good relations with their neighbors regardless of what their religion or beliefs may be. It is also a custom to prepare ashure in large cauldrons and distribute it to the poor.
