According to him, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky described the slogan, "Ya Hussein" as a short form of "Labbaika Ya Hussein". He added that, "Labbaika ya Hussein is a response to Imam Hussein's call when he proclaimed in the plane of Karbala, "Hal min Nasirin Yan Suruna!? " This call follows after the extermination of lives of the entire Imam Hussein's companions along side his household.
One can clearly notice in Imam Hussein's lifestyle all the methods that could have been used by a descendant of the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) to preserve the great legacy of Islam which has been passed down by the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) and his father as well as their genuine followers.

Last Friday marked the beginning of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar, in which adherents of Shia Islam all over the World mark as a mourning period in remembrance of the brutal killing of Imam Hussein (AS), the Grandson of Prophet Muhammad (S), by the evil forces of tyrannical Yazeed on the plains of Karbala.
