The10thDay.com is an Imam Hussain awareness organisation. Our single goal is to increase the awareness of Hussain and the lessons learnt from the story of Karbala. We want people from different ethnicities, backgrounds, religions and beliefs to be reminded of the true story of Karbala and that social justice and individual freedom in today’s society is attainable wherever you live.
I learnt from Hussain how to achieve victory while being oppressed.
Hussain is from me and I am from Hussain.
If Hussain had fought to quench his worldy 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.
His sacrifice is for all groups and communities, an example of the path of righteousness. In a distant age and climate the tragic scene of the death of Hussain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.
Dr. Chris Hewer
Hussain did not want to provoke civil war and the loss of many lives. He tried to avoid conflict but went willingly to his death rather than do what he knew to be wrong.
