The 12 days of Muharram are important days for reflection, contemplation and reformation, therefore it is imperative to remind ourselves of our fundamental duties to Allah (SWT), the religion of Islam and to mankind.
 
Imam Hussain (AS) mission was to reform the Muslim Ummah as manifested clearly in his Will before he left Makah for Iraq and to save Islam which was being trampled by Yazid bin Muawiyah the tyrannical self-imposed ruler of the Muslim world at the time –

Imam Hussain (A.S.) explains the mission of his sacrifice in his own words: “I have taken this stand not out of arrogance or pride, neither out of mischief or injustice. I have risen to seek reform in the community of my grandfather. I would like to bid good, forbid evil, and follow the tradition of my grandfather and my father ‘Ali bin Abi Talib.”
