The Imam of Truth left Makkah on Arafat Day in 60 AH and he was martyred at Karbala on Ashura Day 61 AH. He protested a Hajj controlled by a tyrant leader Yazid and he protest marched with 18 members of his family, including minors, women and breast fed children. He didn’t go for war. He went to make a statement for all time. It’s not the ritual that is important / it’s Islam that is spiritual. So for 10 days we will remember Husayn ع with zeal and then go back and pray behind Yazid? What’s happening to us?
