Why did imam Hussain rise up on Ashura? why Ashura happened?
Hussain (PBUH) explained his revolutionary goal as a will which he
wrote to his brother, Muhammad bin Al-Hanifiah. The text in the above
image is a part of Imam Hussain’s will:
“I did not rise up for the cause of wickedness, amusement, corruption or oppression, but I rose up to reform the Muslim community of my grandfather [Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)]. I want to promote virtue and prevent vice.”
