Muhammad Tufail (Religious Scholar): 10th of Muharram holds great importance for the Muslim Ummah around the world. This event is observed in great grief and sorrow to pay homage to martyrdom of grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in Karbala. Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A.) and his companions sacrificed their lives for the sake of Islam to promote Islam’s message. The sacrifice of Imam Hussain (R.A.) is a clear statement that nothing is above Allah Almighty and Islam. It is the biggest sacrifice in the history of Islam, admired by the Muslim Ummah and this day is observed with religious zeal and fervor.
Dr. Zia-ul-Haq (Religious Scholar): This saddest event of the Islamic history was held to put a halt on the violence and maintaining peace. They were tortured in various manners, but they didn't leave their struggle and never took the way of violence. Therefore, being a Hussaini means to maintain peace and continuing the struggle to spread Islam. The people who bring in violence, hate and ambiguity are opposite to the struggles which were made to uphold the supremacy of Islam. This day is observed to show our love for Ahlul Bayt who sacrificed their lives for the sake of humanity. It is the duty of every Muslim to make sure that these days are observed with religious reverence, leaving all the sectarian differences behind.
