Peace be on you, O Abaa Abdullah, and on those souls who came to your camp to put themselves at your disposal. So far I am alive and the days and nights follow each other I invoke Allah to send blessings on you for ever and ever. May Allah not make my this pledge of close association, physical as well as spiritual, with you the last fulfillment. Peace be on Hussein, and on Ali son of Hussein, and on the children of Hussein, and on the friends of Hussein.[Part of Ziarat Ashuraof Imam Hussein]Karbala The city of Sorrow 2013Imam Hussein’s (as) Tomb in KarbalaInside the Imam Hussein’s (as) Tomb in Karbala

We are in Muharram, the first month of the lunar calendar. Once upon a time on such days, in 61 AH, Imam Hussein, the third Imam of Shia, and his little followers were martyred in a brutally manner.
Hossein (as) is the grandson of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He was invited by about 18000 people of Kufa to establish his caliphate and dethrone the libertine leader, Yazid. But Ebne Ziad the new leader of Kufa (a city in Iraq under supervision of Yazid) scared people in a manner that almost all of them returned from their idea and leaved Hussein alone and even fight with him! Finally happened what happened:
Since then each year Shiites mourn for Hussein and his followers at Muharram and specially Ashura the 10th day of Muharram in which AbaAbdellah Al Hussein (as) martyred. Moreover, millions of pilgrims mourn in Karbala every year, yet it still remains a distant journey that each and every Shia longs to make.
We are waiting for Imam Mahdi (aj) to come and take avenge of Hussein, Insha’Allah.
Imam Mahdi (as): I will lament for you morning and evening and weep for you with tears of blood
