Ashura 2017

Day of Ashura was the day in which Imam Husayn, and all 72 of his companions were violently killed and beheaded one by one and all their women and children were captured.

Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam who prophet Muhammad had stated about him:

“Hussain is from me and I’m from Hussain”

but he was murdered in fifty years following the prophet Muhammad by the people who called themselves Muslim!

Imam Hussain was surrounded by an Army of 30,000  at the land of Karbala on his way to Kufah in the year 61 Hijri (about 680 AD). Paying allegiance to Yazid was the only way for Imam Hussain to survive but Yazid did not believe in prophetess and revelation as he said it openly and his behaviors were against the Islamic rules. Thus there was no way for Imam Hussain except to   sacrifice what they had to save Islam from utter distortion and destruction.
