Who is Hussain son of Ali? Why do we need to know about him?
The sorrow we feel for Imam Hussain (p) and the tragedy of Karbala stems from our devotion to God and His Messenger (pbuh&hp). Thus, its influence in our life should not be confined to just the days of mourning. This sorrow is felt because it represents the upholding of God’s religion and everything that is lofty and dignified.
So, we carry it with us perpetually and make it an ingrained part of who we are. Watch the latest from Islam Weekly with Shaykh Dr. Mehdi Hazari and be sure to subscribe.
