A’ashura – O Husain!

“I learnt from Husain how to achieve victory while being oppressed”

– Mahatma Gandhi (Indian statesman)

“The best lesson which we get from the tragedy of Karbala is that Husain and his companions were rigid believers in God.  The victory of Husain, despite his minority, marvels me!”

– Thomas Carlyle (Scottish historiam and essayist)

“In a distant age and climate, the tragic scene of the death of Husain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader!”

– Edward Gibbon (English historian and MP)

“If Husain had fought to quench his worldly desires…then I do not understand why his sister, wife and children accompanied him.  It stands to reason, therefore, that he sacrificed purely for Islam”

– Charles Dickens (English novelist)
