Ziarat of Syeda Fatima Zahra(sa)
This video is in Persian with Arabic subtitles demonstrates how Imam Husain, peace be upon him, spent the last night with his supporters.
Whatever your language is, watch it and feel Husain.
Dear international journalists, to know further about these ceremonies, please make sure you attend any related event taking place in the Centers of Imam Husain, named Husayniya, in any nearby or close community. Make sure you get translation and briefing of the scholars lectures and feedback. This is a great chance to get to know that the pure version of Islam is the one that Imam Husain martyred for. It’s only then you will consider the Islam is the one presented by Ahlul-bayt (Prophet Muhammad and his Household- the 12 infallible Imams; I.e. Leaders of Muslims) and that any other version is nothing but the distorted one, claimed and fabricated- ex. ISIS and the like. Know Al Husain. Fight Islamophobia. Knowing Husain consequently leads to knowing his followers who live peacefully and integrate deeply in different foreign communities.

شاركوا الانسانية. شاركوا الحسين. هكذا دحر الشيعة داعش وقدموا انفسهم قرابين فداء للإنسانية | تغطية محاضرة الشيخ رياض الباوي، الليلة 6، محرم الحرام، 1483
Woman status in Islam is carefully considered. Woman has to be married to her qualified man. Imam Ali and Supreme Lady Fatima marriage is Allah’s choice and match. No other man is qualified to marry Supreme Lady Fatima; and vice versa- no woman is qualified to Imam Ali other than Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, peace be upon them.
This couple has offered all what they have in the sake of Allah. The Quran narrates the story of how they spent along with their children three nights successively offering their dinner first to a poor man, an orphan and a detainee.
This sacrifice inspires their daughter Lady Zeinab, the most knowledgeable woman who narrated what happened in Karbala and offered the martyrdom of Imam Husain, peace be upon him, as a sacrifice to Allah, moreover, asking His acceptance.
“O, Allah accept from us this sacrifice [qurban].”
Dear youths, your attendance here in the Husainy recitation sessions is a source of sacrifice, source of pride that we belong to this school of thought.
To this school of thought do the companions of Imam Husain belong.
In the 9th day of Muhamrram, 60 Hegira, Imam Husain addressed his companions to go home. “These people [the enemy] want me in person”, he said.
But they refused. They stayed standfast. “I swear by Allah, if I would be killed then chopped as many as seventy times, I don’t leave you.”
Upon their stay, Imam Husain thus asked the men to let their women join the tribe of Al Asadi who take residence in Karbala.
Hearing this, one of the women made objections as stating: “O [Master] Husain, would you want your mother [Lady Fatima] lose you and I keep my son!”
After the martyrdom of all his companions and family members including his nephew Al Qasem, his two sons Ali Al Akbar, and Ali Al Asghar who was a breast-feeding baby, and finally his brother Al Abbas, Imam Husain stood alone calling their names one by one: O Zuhair, O Habib, I am calling you, why aren’t you answering me?
Don’t you know Husain I am?
To this school our sons belong. Their sacrifice has defeated Da’ish and all states funding it.
Our sons sacrifice is a universal sacrifice on behalf of humanity.

There is a great commonality between the sacrifice offered by the son of Adam in the first era of humanity and the sacrifice of Imam Husain, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, May Allah’s blessings be upon them.
Allah included the story of Adam’s murdered son in His everlasting Divine Book which is read day and night by all Muslims all over the world all over the time.
“Revive our issues.” Ahlul-Bayt recommends. “May Allah pour mercy over those who revive our issues!” They supplicate.
Knowing Ahlul-Bayt is knowing their knowledge, hadiths, and the stories of the oppression they encountered in their lives.
Ahlul-Bayt say: “Study our hadith and teach it to people.”
Ahlul-Bayt urged peots, reporters and writers to report the occurring in their lives in all literary forms possible including historical narration of their stories in the form of poems.
Ahlul-Bayt’s top story is what happened to Imam Husain.
Prophet Muhammad said: “Husain is from me and I am from Husain.”
Habil, son of Adam was killed immediately and murdered alone and his story is divinely kept forever. Then what about Imam Husain story who witnessed the killing of every member of his companions and family? What about the mercy he expressed and emotions he released for every killing he witnessed?!
Review the ugliness of the killing of Habil and the killing if Imam Husain. Review the savagery of the killing against each one. Habil was killed in the first era if humanity- no weapons/ no tools of killings. While when Imam Husain killed, can you imagine what sort of preparation had been there taking place? The army of Yezid fought Imam Husain by all sorts of weapons and killed him by all sorts of weapons! All makers of iron, steel, arrows (moreover poisoned)… had been busy for months making the tools of the killing of Imam Husain.
Sorrow for the loss of Imam Husain burned the hearts of Ahlul-Bayt.
“My grandfather Husain was slaughtered like a sheep! Perhaps slaughtering a sheep would be less savagery. Butcher waters the sheep before slaughtering it. He makes sure he slaughters it in a second of minute without letting it see the knife in his hands. While Imam Husain kept saying:” Thirst..thirst”
Imam Ali son of Husain saw a camel crying. He asked: Has this camel witnessed the killing of her son? Yes, the man answered.
The Imam said this camel is like Laila who witnessed the killing of her son Ali al Akbar.
Imam al Mahdi takes isolation in desert everyday recalling what happened in Karbala scene by scene: “I will cry in the morning and the evening blood instead of tears!”
A poet addresses Imam al Mahdi saying: “How would you forget the sigh of al Zahra behind the door when she was pressed and her sigh when Husain was beheaded and his lips got blue from dryness and thirsty?! How would you forget your uncle al Abbas?! How would forget your aunts who were taken captives over the imposed caliphate states?!
