Muharram Special - Part 9 [Battle of Karbala - Part 3]


HAZRAT MUSLIM IN KUFA:
Hazrat Imam Muslim bin Aqeel Radi Allahu Anhu thus went to Kufa as the representative of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu. He was accompanied by his two young sons on this journey. When he arrived in kufa, he stayed at the home of Mukhtar bin Ubaid.
When the people of kufa heard of his arrival, they came in huge groups and took Bai'at on his hands as the representative of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu. Some narrations have said that approximately 12000 people took the oath of allegiance. When Imam Muslim bin Aqeel Radi Allahu Anhu saw the sincerity of the people, he immediately wrote to Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu informing him of this, and requested him to come to Kufa.    
YAZEED'S PLAN :
Yazeed heard of the situation in Kufa, how they had taken oath of allegiance at the hands of Hazrat Muslim bin Aqeel and how the people of Kufa were waiting with anticipation for the arrival of Imam Hussain Radi Allahu Anhu.
(Chain of Lights Vol 1, translated by Mawlana Afthab Cassim from "Tazkira Masha'ikh Qadria Razvia")
