The Islamic Ummah and the Islamic society should never disregard the event of Ashura as a lesson, an edifying model and a flag of guidance. Certainly Islam is alive thanks to Ashura and Hussein ibn Ali (peace be upon him). As the Prophet said: “and I am from Hussein”. Thus it means my religion and the continuity of my path is achieved through Hussein. Had the event of Ashura not happened, had such great sacrifice not occurred in the history of Islam, such experience, such practical lesson would not be taught to the Islamic Ummah and Islam would have certainly deviated from its true path.
