Hussain Ibn Ali was the second son of Hazrat Ali and Hazrat Fatima making him the grandson of Holy Prophet (PBUH). He was born in 626 CE in the month of Sha’aban.
He received the same kind of love from Prophet (PBUH) as did his elder brother Hassan. The Prophet (PBUH) called both the “leaders of youth of Paradise”. After the assassination of his brother, he stood against the Tyranny of Yazid as the latter was not the rightful successor to Caliph designation. He stood against Yazid and in Karbala had a battle which is still a representative of the determination of truth and the brutality of evil.
Hussain Ibn Ali was martyred during the battle of Karbala on 10 of Muharram 680 CE. He is the hero of Islam and the imam of Shia sect.
