On the 10th of Muharram Al-Haram, 61 AH, a most abominable and tragic event occurred in the desert of Karbala that resulted in the martyrdom of Imam Hussain ibn Ali and the grandson of the blessed Messenger (peace be upon him), along with most of the members of his family and their supporters. This book looks at the events that occurred on that sad day as well as the struggle of Imam Hussain against an oppressive tyrant.
