Ashura

In the month of Muharram 61 AH (approx. 20 October 680 AD), an event took place in Iraq at a place known as Kerbala on the bank of the river Euphrates. It seemed in those days insignificant from the historical point of view. A large army which had been mobilised by the Umayyad regime besieged a group of persons numbering less than a hundred and put them under pressure to pay allegiance to the Caliph of the time and submit to his authority. The small group resisted and a severe battle took place in which they were all killed.

The holy prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Imam Husayn (PBUH) gave everything he had to save the whole mankind. He revived Islam by his blood to save the humanity, therefore each year, Shia Muslim people across the world donate blood on the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Husayn (PBUH) on the day of Ashura to save the lives of people.
