Monday, August 8th, 2022, marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain ibn Ali (p), 1444 A.H., and the Day of Ashura.

Imam Ali al-Rida (p) is reported to have said:

 “If you have to cry over something, then do so over Hussain ibn Ali (p), for surely he was slaughtered in the manner in which a ram is slaughtered.”

[Shaykh al-Sadouq, Oyon akhbar al-Rida (p), vol. 2, p. 268]

روي عن الإمام علي الرضا (ع):

“إنْ كُنتَ باكِياً لشيءٍ فابْكِ لِلحُسَينِ بِن عَلي بِن أبي طالِب عَليْهما السَّلام فَإنَّهُ ذُبِحَ كَمَا يُذْبَحُ الكَبْشْ”

[الشيخ الصدوق، عيون أخبار الرضا (ع)، ج ٢، الصفحة ٢٦٨]
