The tragedy of Karbala, the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (`a), is one of those events of great significance. Its lessons concern not just one group of men and their relationship to the world, but all mankind. It is a moral paradigm. It teaches sacrifice and opposition to injustice; it teaches integrity of purpose, love of family, gentleness and bravery. In fact, in the account of the tragic journey and martyrdom of Imam Hussain (`a), there are lessons in all moral virtues.
“No battle in the modern and past history of mankind has earned more sympathy and admiration as well as provided more lessons than the martyrdom of Hussein in the battle of Karbala.” – (Kuwait-based Syrian Christian writer Antoine Bara who is the author of “Imam Hussein in Christian Ideology”.)
