Shahadat e Imam Hussain (R.A) is the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A). He is the son of Hazrat Ali (R.A), the fourth caliph of Islam. He is also the grandson of Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H). His assassination and martyrdom in the history is called as Sawaneh Karbala. Karbala is the place where this Shahadat took place. He was against the Caliphate of Yazeed due to his un-Islamic and loose character. Yazeed wanted Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A) to take his baih and approve him as next caliph. But Hazrat Imam Hussain (R.A) wanted the supremacy of Quranic rule and principles. He left his home with his 71 other companions and family members. For 3 days, the virtuous Imam and his companions spent with a drop of water. On 10th Muharram, 61 Hijri, Shahadat e Imam Hussain (R.A) took place.
