Day of Ashura was the day Imam Hussain scarified what he had to save Islam from utter distortions. Paying allegiance to Yazid (the tyrant of his time) was the only way for Imam Hussain to survive but Imam hussain still did not approve the Yazid’s government which was not based on the Islamic rules.  Thus Yazid’s army surrounded the prophet Muhammad’s son and his companions and family on the way toward Iraq in the land of Karbala .
