In the battlefield of Karbala, Imam stood up against injustice and falsehood and gave us a bright path to follow. Haihath Minna Zillah.
Imam-e-Aali-Maqam sacrificed everything he had for Islam and for Allah. It is rightly said that “Haqqa ke Binae La Ilah Ast Husaain”.
The grandson of Prophet (SAWW) and son of Shair-e-Khuda Ali A.S. faced the cruel enemy with great courage. He did all this to please God Almighty. Salam Ya Hussain!
After the shahadat of Imam A.S., every Day is Ashura and each territory is Karbala. May Allah bless us with the courage to become Ashurai, Karbalai, and Hussaini. Aameen
Karbala was a battle between haq and batil. Imam A.S. represented haq and he will be always remembered for his bravery, courage, and sacrifice.
