The 3rd of Shaban – on the Islamic calendar reminds us of birth anniversary of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the grandson of the holy prophet of Islam and one of his truthful infallible successors.


The holy prophet said through one of his well-known tradition that the parable of my Ahlul-Bayt is similar to that of Noah's Ark. The honorable prophet also said, “"al-Hussain (PBUH) is torch of guidance and Ark of salvation".


Imam Hussian’s divine personality, his closeness to God, the Almighty, and his role in leading and guiding the mankind has made him unprecedented divine role-model for entire mankind and symbol of resistance against all injustices.  


Imam Khomeini, the leader of contemporary Muslim world, stressed that the struggle for the Islamic revolution was inspired by the genuine teachings of Islam, and has been closely associated to movement of Imam Hussain (PBUH) who rose against all types of tyranny.


To clarify the place of highly spiritual certainty of the companions of Imam Hossein (PBUH), Imam Khomeini once said:


“As the Master of Martyrs on the day of Ashura approached the time of martyrdom his face was shining more, and his companions were competing to win martyrdom, they knew they would soon become martyrs, but they raced towards it because they knew where it would lead them, and they knew why they came (to support the Imam), they were aware that we had come to perform their divine duty, they had come to save Islam.” 


According to the great Imam, matchless sacrifice of the Household of Imam Hussein (PBUH) and his Companions shook the pillars of tyrant rulers.


“The revolution of Ashura emerged at the hands of the Master of Martyrs (PBUH), who by sacrificing his own blood and the blood of his dear ones saved Islam and justice, and condemned the rule of the Umayyads and demolished its rules and foundations.”
