Every page of history is an opportunity for humanity to take lesson. The ruthless martyrdom of Sayyiduna Husain (Radiyallahu Anhu), leader of the youth of Jannah, his family and companions shall never be forgotten. Every Muslim deeply perceives the pain of this tragedy and there are many lessons to be learnt from this tragic event.
This brief treatise has been translated, adapted and condensed from the work of Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Shafi Usmani titled ‘Shaheed Karbala’ (The Martyr of Karbala). It is hoped that this will give readers some insight into the tragic events of this fateful battle and enhance our love and attachment for the noble family of Rasulullah ﷺ.
