Was Hussain's mission suicidal? Did he fight for political power? Are the Shia of Kufa responsible for his murder? This documentary scrutinises the battle of Karbala, and addresses some common misconceptions surrounding Imam Hussain's supreme sacrifice on the day of Ashura.


The Tragedy of Karbala and Its Implications for the Self
True progress and reform requires not only desire and hope, but commitment and sacrifice. If we want to move forward we have to make deliberate and continual steps, starting from the very basics of our deen, and couple this with regular, intense self-examination and passion for the goal. . .


Impacts of Karbala on the Vigilance of Muslims
Unlike a hasty approach to the event of Karbala which may reflect the idea that the revolution of Imam Husain was unfulfilled and it was an unsuccessful struggle, when we carefully study the historical events after the tragedy of Karbala we will, no doubt, come to the conclusion that the revolution of Imam Husain was not only successful in its own nature, but was also the major cause of all the revolutionary movements which took place after Karbala. In fact, Karbala, in the history of Islam should be regarded as a turning point in the reforming of Muslims . . .


Too many Yazids and no Imam Husain in the Ummah today
There is a long list of tragedies that have befallen us that can be cited as our present-day Karbalas: Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Kashmir, Bosnia and Gujrat are but a few. . .


Medina: the Roots of Karbala
It was right after the Prophet was martyred. While he was still unburied, some of the people in Medina rushed to select the next ruler at Saqifa. Imam Ali (peace be upon him) and some of the Prophet's close companions stayed far from that. The events that soon unfolded became a tragedy in themselves. And this tragedy was the path that paved the road for the enemies of Ahlul Bayt to commit those heinous acts on the 10th of Muharram. One wonders how such injustice can happen. But how can we be surprised when the daughter of the Prophet, shortly after her father's death, was beaten with the whip. . .


Karbala: The never-ending battle
When terrorists plant a roadside bomb, target a busy marketplace, office building or shopping mall, we see the spirit of Yazid's army at work. When extremists kidnap someone and cut off his head, bomb a school full of children, or target a group of worshipers, we see the Battle of Karbala reenacted. Thus the Battle of Karbala rages on - never to be resolved until mankind sheds its last vestiges of bestiality and becomes completely human. . .


KARBALA: Keeping the message alive
It's a day like any other. You are walking or driving down the street, when suddenly you see the road ahead is closed. On the other side of the steel barriers, you see a long procession of people surging past dressed in unusual clothes, shouting strange words, waving banners covered in unfamiliar writing. As you get closer, drums. . .

...... Shariati takes us to the heart of Shi'ism - Fatima, the beloved daughter of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He describes the woman we could not see, the one we thought we knew but only after his guidance do we become aware of the fact that although we related each day directly to her spirit, she had been lost as a model for our daily lives. That is, we had an emotional attachment to her inner essence but we had removed her form. Shariati takes us to Fatima. He begins with the social customs of the Arabian Peninsula before her birth where according to custom, female children were buried alive at birth in order to save the family from the disgrace of having an unsuitable son-in-law. It was the revolutionary message of Islam which did away with this custom. God reveals through the Quran that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had been given the abundant river of Paradise and through that river, he shall have abundant progeny although according to Arab beliefs at that time, a man without a son is called 'cut-off'. How could it be? The father of a daughter will have abundant progeny

This is a biography of Fatima az Zahra a.s. daughter of Prophet of Islam (saww), upto the time of Prophets death. Because of the extremely sensitive period which followed Prophets death, and the everlasting effects which the events thereafter left upon the Islamic ideology and the structure of various Muslim sects and issues, the compiler deemed necessary to study various historical books, especially those which dealth with Lady Fatima Zahra's life, to come up with the most accurate information regarding the prime of the post period of the Prophets death. Moreover, various sermons which were delivered during those events, were intentionally included in the book especially Fatima's speeches so as to allow researchers to study the said historical events independently. In the end, we would like to mention that this book will be very useful not only to information seeking readers, but also to researchers and history students.

One of its salient features is that the author has taken extreme care in narrating historical events and at the same time he has endeavoured as a research scholar, to approach them with an analytic mind also. Another interesting feature of this book is that it is absolutely free from heresies and concocted stories invented by vested interests. This book gives full details of the entire life of the Holy Prophet of Islam.
