Recently , I searched again for the quotes about Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, in Sunni collections of quotes and I found some other traditions about him by the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) at here.
The following image is a quote I found it about the holy prophet Muhammad’s view toward those who fight with Imam Ali, Lady Fatima, Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (PBUH).
I continued my search through the references mentioned below the quote for confirmation and I found it correct.
The Prophet said to Ali, Fatemah, Hasan and Hussain (PBUT):
“I am in war with those who will fight you, and in peace with those who are peaceful to you.”

Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson who refused to pay allegiance to the tyrant of his time thus he along with his few followers were all brutally killed on the day of Ashura at the battlefield of Karbala about 14 centuries ago but every year, Muslim people around the world participate in the mourning ceremonies and processions to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain.
Why they have been weeping for Imam Hussain for centuries?! Why the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and other Shia Imams were crying for Imam Hussain and why they have also recommend us to cry for him (PBUH)?
Imam Khomeini , the founder of Islamic republic of Iran has stated the reason of weeping for Imam Hussain (PBUH) in his speech. The following image includes a part of Imam Khomeini’s speech in the year 1969 (several years before the victory of Islamic revolution).
Imam Khomeini stated in his speech:
“…Now, a group has appeared demanding that: “Do not commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and other Infallible Shia Imams.” They do not know the outcome and consequences of this mourning and lamentation. They do not realize that it is the uprising of Imam Hussain (PBUH) against tyranny that has been conserved up to this time and has set off this movement [Islamic revolution]. This movement is a ray, a reflection of Imam Hussain’s uprising. They do not know that weeping for Imam Hussain (PBUH) means perpetuation of his uprising and maintaining the fact that even a small number could stand up against a great empire. This is the Imam Hussain’s instruction. This is an instruction for all people that: “Every day is an Ashura and each territory is Karbala!” This instruction implies that Imam Hussain’s movement must be kept alive and active everywhere and at all times.
Imam Hussain (PBUH) with his few men scarified himself for Islam. He stood up and said: “No!” to a great empire ; and his “No” must be conserved daily and at everywhere; and these mourning sessions are also held for the perpetuation of the same “No”.
Our children and youth should not consider this matter as a matter of “weeping nation”. The “weeping nation” has been induced by others to you. They (the enemies of Islam) afraid of such weeping because it is a cry in support of the oppressed. It is an outcry in opposition to the tyrants. These organized processions and rituals are against the cruelty and injustice, They have rose up. You must keep these rituals alive. These are the religious signs which must be kept alive, These are the political signs which must be conserved…”

Tonight is the first night of Muharram in 2018.
People around the world have been prepared for the mourning ceremonies since several days ago and now all over the cities are covered in black. The smell of Muharram has been propagated through the air and our hearts are started to be burned again for Imam Hussain’s martyrdom.
Tonight is the first night of mourning for the martyrdom of the prophet Muhammad’s grandson , Imam Hussain, in Shia believes as Imam Reza (PBUH) has stated:
“No one could have seen my father’s smile when the month of Muharram came. Sadness was increasing in his face day by day till the tenth of Muharram [day of Ashura] and when the tenth day of Muharram would dawn, it would be a day of grief and weeping for him.” – Imam Reza (PBUH)

قال الرضا علیه السلام: كان أبي (صلوات الله عليه) إذا دخل شهر المحرم لا يرى ضاحكا، وكانت الكآبة تغلب عليه حتى يمضي منه عشرة أيام، فإذا كان يوم العاشر كان ذلك اليوم يوم مصيبته وحزنه وبكائه، ويقول: هو اليوم الذي قتل فيه الحسين (صلوات الله عليه
امام رضا علیه السلام فرمود: هر گاه ماه محرم فرا می رسید، پدرم (موسی بن جعفر علیه السلام) دیگر خندان دیده نمی شد و غم و افسردگی بر او غلبه می یافت تا آن که ده روز از محرم می گذشت، روز دهم محرم که می شد، آن روز، روز مصیبت و اندوه و گریه پدرم بود
