‘Every day is Ashura and every land is Karbala’

Muslims all around the globe commemorate the tragedy that befell the household of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and his progeny during Muharram which is the first month of the Islamic calendar.

A few years after the death of the holy Prophet (S.A.W.W) darkness once again loomed over the horizon when Yazid, son of Muawiya bin Abu Sufyan was imposed as a ruler of the Islamic world through fraud and treachery.

Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims commemorate the tragedy that befell the household of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and his progeny.

The grandson of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w) Imam Husayn (As) son of Ali bin Abi Talib (A.s) and Fatimah (A.s) Bint Muhammad (s.a.w.w) was martyred on 10th Muharram 61 A.H in the plains of Karbala by the army of Yazid bin Muawiya.

This tragedy of Karbala, as is famously known, presents the everlasting struggle between right and wrong – justice and injustice.

This struggle is inevitable in every human being. There exists an inner voice in us that tells us to do good and act justly on one side. And on the other hand, another tempting voice that commands us to do the opposite. It takes an independent minded person like Hur ibn Yazid     Ar-riahi (r.a) who, all along was serving under Yazid’s army, to change his mind and join Imam Husayn’s (A.s) camp.

Muharram Report 1435 AH

O' God! Surely you know that whatever we did was not a competition to gain worldly positions and not for the worthless physical attractions of the world. But to show the signs of religious ways and to remove corruption from your lands, so that the oppressed feel secured and act according to your traditions and rules.
(Tohaf-al- Uqoul, P. 239)
