Salutations upon Husayn, Ali ibn Husayn, the children of Husayn, and the companions of Husayn.
Despite the ultimate victory of Imam Husayn (A), the grief and tragedy that is in Karbala is too much to bear.
Truly, Imam Husayn (A) showed the world for all of time, that sacrifice on the path of Allah and for the sake of Allah, has no limits.
But do we think about the tragedy and the grief of those who survived the event of Karbala or those who weren’t in the land of Karbala on the day of Ashura, but are intricately and intimately connected to it.
Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei relates us a heart-breaking tragedy that didn’t occur in the sands of Karbala, but was intimately connected to it.
O’ Abbas, how was it that the enemy was able to hit you with a mace, for you are the bravest lion of Bani Hashim.
