Ashura is the 10th day of the Islamic month of Muharram. On that day, Muslims around the world commemorate the Revolution of Imam Husayn (a), the grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s), against tyranny, injustice, and corruption. He and 72 of his family members and companions were ruthlessly martyred by an army of 30,000 sent by Yezid who was a brutal tyrant ruler. Imam Husayn rose for Islam for, as he said in his own words: “I have risen to seek reform and to restore the true teachings of my grandfather Prophet Muhammad (s) …And I only desire to spread good values and prevent evil…”
Today, Ashura commemorations gather the faithful not only to mourn, but to reestablish their commitment to work for peace and justice in every aspect of their lives.
