What is Ashura ?

In the month of muharram 61 years AH (approx. 20 October 680 AD), an event took place in Iraq at a place known as Kerbala on the bank of the river Euphrates. It seemed in those days insignificant from the historical point of view. A large army which had been mobilised by the Umayyad regime besieged a group of persons numbering less than a hundred and put them under pressure to pay allegiance to the Caliph of the time and submit to his authority. The small group resisted and a severe battle took place in which they were all killed.

"Islam must live, though I shall die" … a elegiac tribute to Imam Husayn

"Islam must live, though I shall die" … a elegiac tribute to Imam Husayn

In a time when Islam was under siege
The divine path was trodden low.
Due to injustice, Islam cried out
"Who will rise to meet this foe?"

A man, ONE man, his head held aloft
As a star amidst the barren sky.
With kith and kin gathered along
He rose to heed the stricken cry!

He reached the sands of Kerbala
Betrayed! Refused! Denied his right.
His intention pure, to save Islam
This man of God was forced to fight.
