Hazrat Imam Hussain A.S was the son of Hazrat Ali A.S, the fourth Caliph of the Muslims. He was the grandson of the Prophet of Islam. When Yazeed Bin Muaviah became the ruler of the Muslim state, Hazrat Imam Hussain refused to accept his rule. He has serious reservations about the character of Yazeed and his legacy. Hazrat Imam Hussain raised his voice against the sins of Yazeed.
When Hazrat Imam Hussain was going to Kufa, the troops of Yazeed stopped his way. After a short battle, the Yazeed army killed Hazrat Imam Hussain and his family and companions. The women and children were also arrested. It was a sad time in the Tareekh for the whole Islamic world.
