The Night Of Ashura 1437

Irshad Soofi



The Martyrdom of Imam Husayn ‎(peace on him) at Karbala took place in 61 AH some 49 years after the passing of Holy Prophet Muhammad ‎(peace on him and his family)‎‬. The protest to death of the Ahl al-Bayt is a symbol of the unity of all Muslims. It is for the sake of this unity in faith and commitment to God & truth (which is Islam), that Imam Husayn ‎(peace on him), eighteen direct descendants of the Holy Prophet Muhammad ‎(peace on him and his family)‎ , & 53 followers drank the nectar of Martyrdom at Karbala thus earning everlasting life. Imam Husayn ‎(peace on him )‎ took a stand against tyranny at the age of 56 years. He gave the ultimate sacrifice of position, family and life for the restoration of justice. He refused a partisan Islam, & leadership devoid of morality (Adab) & love (ishq).
