On 3rd Shaban, 04 Hijri, of the Islamic Calendar, the Last Messenger of Allah (swt), Hazrat Mohammad-e-Mustafa’s (saww) beloved and the most Pious & Pure daughter, Hazrat-e-Fatema Zahra (s.a) gave birth to a son.
Imam Husayn (a.s.) asked his 18 year old son, Ali, to recite “ADHAN” to let the world get up for their morning prayers. Imam led the morning prayers. After the prayers both sides started preparing for the battle. Hur, Yazid’s Commander, who had forced Imam to camp in Karbala decided to join the forces of Imam.
Today, almost 14 centuries after Husain was brutally killed in the battle of karbala millions of people around the world are inspired by the life and stand of Husain. Every year, millions commemorate the anniversary of his death, on the 10th day of the first month of the lunar calendar (Muharram), also known as ‘the Day of Ashura’.
