Thursday, September 20th, 2018, marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain ibn Ali (p), 10th of Muharram, the Day of Ashura, 1440 A.H.

Imam Hussain ibn Ali (p) is reported to have said:

I did not rise as [one who is] insolent, arrogant, a mischief-monger, or a tyrant. I have risen to reform the nation of my grandfather [Prophet Muhammad (pbuh&hp)]. I wish to enjoin the good [al-amr bi al-maruf] and forbid the evil [al-nahi al-munkar], and to follow the way of my grandfather and father [Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (p)].

(Al-Shaykh al-Qarashi, Hayat al-Hussain, vol. 1, p. 11)
