The magnanimous Imam Sajjad (a.s.) lived for almost thirty-four years after the Karbala event, in an Islamic environment of that time. His life history is full of lessons; hopefully, those who are aware of the qualities of his life, will relate them to the people: to Muslims and even non-Muslims, so that everybody learns how our fourth great Imam (as), after Ashura, which was a huge blow to the pure and true Islam, managed to stand alone and prevented the destruction a religion's foundation.

Malam Ahmad Yusuf Yashi described the event of Karbala in few words and urged the general public to radhere the tragedy of Karbala and put it at the back of their mind.

The tenth of Muharram of every year is the day of Ashura, the tenth day in new Islamic calendar. The day of Ashura is historically significant due to the unprecedented tragedy that befell the pure Household of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) in the plain of Karbala 61 AH. On that fateful day, Husain, Grandson of the Holy Prophet, son of Imam Ali (AS) and Sayyidah Fatimah (AS) was mercilessly slain alongside his family members and a handful of his companions in cold blood by the army of despotic Yazid, son of Mu’awiyyah.
