Muharram Special - Part 7 [Battle of Karbala - Part 1]

REASON FOR SHAHADAT:

On the demise of Hazrat Ameer Muawiyah Radi Allahu Anhu, his son Yazeed assumed Khilafat in the year 60 Hijri. Hazrat Ameer Muawiyah Radi Allahu Anhu is a sahabi and a very beloved companion of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه و سلم . He is also amongst those who commanded to record verses of the Holy Quran in written form. 

Yazeed however was a tyrant. He sent letters to all the muslim states requesting them to accept him as the leader of the muslims (The khalifa). He also sent a letter to the governer of Madinah, Waleed ibn Uqba, informing him that he should command Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu to accept him as the Khalifa and take oath of allegiance at his hands. However Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu rejected the bai'at of yazeed because Yazeed was a faasiq, an alcoholic and a tyrant.
