The 10th of Muharram marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain ibn Ali (p), 1443 A.H., and the Day of Ashura

Imam Hussain (p) is reported to have said:

People are truly the slaves to the world [and its desires], and their loyalty to religion [is superficial] like the utterances on their tongues, they are observant of it as long as their livelihood is provided, [and] when they are faced with infliction, the religious [among them] become scarce.

Ibn Abi Shuba al-Harrany,Tuhaf-al-Uqool, p. 245

:روي عن الإمام الحسين (عليه السَّلام) (ع)

“اِنَّ النّاسَ عَبيدُ الدُّنيا، وَالدّينُ لَعقٌ اَلسِنَتِهِم،يَحُوطُونَهُ مادَرَّت مَعائِشُهُم فِإذا مُحِّصُوا بِالبَلاءِ قَلَّ الدَّيّانُونَ”

[ابن ابي شعبة الحراني، تحف العقول، ص ٢٤٥]
