Muhammad Faoqi the chairperson of Islamic culture and mosque institute of Mazandran said that the importance of the history of life of Imam Hussein (also Husayn) (a.s.) which has been converted to one of most sensational epics of human history is not only because of arousing most powerful waves of sensations of millions of people around itself every year and creates a ceremony which is more sensational than other ceremonies, but its importance is mostly because that: It has no "motive" other than pure religious and humanly and popular sensations and feelings and this magnificent ceremony that observes in respect and commemoration of this historical incident has no need to preliminaries and advertisements and it is unexampled in its kind in this aspect.
Could Imam Hussein (a.s.) keep silence and stay calm against this great danger which was threatening dear Islam and was raised to its top in the time of "Yazid"? Did Allah and Prophet (s.a.) and all pure arms which had made him grow want that?
Didn't he have to break the deadly silence which was dominating the Islamic society by an extraordinary devotion and absolute self sacrifice, and show the evil movement of this party of ignorance from behind the curtains of propagandas of "Bani Umayya" and write shining lines on the forehead of history Islam with his pure blood in order that an eternal and sensational epic remains for future?
Yes, Hussein (a.s.) did this and performed his great and historical duty for Islam and change the way of the history of Islam. He destroyed the anti-Islamic cabals of Umavi party and neutralized their last tyrannical efforts.
