Muharram Special - Part 17 [Battle Of Karbala - Part 11]

Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu then showed the letters to the people of Kufa. They rejected that the letters were sent by them. When Imam Hussain saw their betrayal, he said, "Alhamdulillah! I have fulfilled my responsibility of reasoning. Now there is no need to reason with you again."  


The enemy then attacked the camp of the Ahle Bait, and thus began the battle of Karbala. One after the other, the members of the Ahle Bait and companions of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu entered the battle field. Each one made Jihad against the enemy until he was made shaheed.
Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu then prepared for the battle. He was now ready to enter the battle field. Just then, he saw standing before him, Imam Zainul Abideen. He was the son of Imam Hussain and could not go into battle because he was very ill. He said;

" O my beloved father! How can you go into battle whereas I am still alive. Permit me to go into the battle field like the other members of the Ahle Bait. I too want to attain the status of Shahaadat."

Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu replied; "O my beloved son! Go into the tent of the Ahle Bait. Do not insist on going into battle. Because of you, the Ahle Bait of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam will remain until the last day."

On hearing these word of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu, Imam Zainul Abideen remained silent.
