About Imam Hossein
Sixty-one years after Hijra (680 AD), in a time of turmoil and struggles for rule, Yazid, the grandson of Abu Sufyan, saw Husain (a.s.), the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.), as a barrier for him in achieving uncontested power over the Muslim world, for Husain (a.s.) was inviting people to a life of freedom from tyranny. Therefore, Yazid commanded that Husain (a.s.) be murdered. While Husain (a.s.) was traveling with his family and some of his friends from Mecca to Kuffa, Yazid’s forces surrounded them in a land called Karbala, where they were killed brutally, suffering in thirst beneath the hot desert sky. We might ask ourselves, “What is the special significance of this particular event, since throughout history many massacres have taken place?” In order for us to understand the importance of this event we need to take a few steps back in history and discover who Husain (a.s.) actually was. First, let us look at the Quran, if we believe that the Quran is the word of God and a miracle, which it is-- as is proven in 2:23-24, 4:82, 17:88, and 52:34. The Quran tells us that God sends representatives to earth. For example, in 35:24, God mentions that He sends a representative to every people. FAW
Secondly, we need to differentiate between Prophethood and Imamate. In 2:124, God says to the Prophet Abraham (a.s.), in his old age, “Now We will make you an Imam (chief, leader) of men. “Notice that Abraham (a.s.) was already a prophet when he was granted the position of Imamate, as is clear from the verse. We know prophethood ended with the Prophet Mohammad (p.b.u.h.), but did Imamate? If God sends His guidance to us on earth as He has mentioned in 2:38 of the Quran, then could indeed Husain (a.s.) be His representative, the guide He has sent, and an Imam for that time? Finally, we should ask ourselves who is God’s representative on earth during our own time!
