Cuban News Agency: Hussein, peace be upon him, sacrificed his life for the revival of Islam
The international news site 'Prensa Latina' confirmed that the remembrance of the martyrs of the battle of Karbala over the centuries is a matter of appreciation as heroes of the resistance died in defense of the truth.
In a report on one of the most prominent religious occasions in Islamic history, the site said, "The tenth day of the sacred month of Muharram in the Islamic calendar, or Ashura, is the date that coincides with the martyrdom of the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, Imam Hussein ibn Ali, peace be upon him, in the midst of an unequal battle in Karbala in the year 680 AD.”
The report added, "Hussein, peace be upon him, sacrificed his life to revive Islam, which Yazid was trying to obliterate, and who unjustly occupied the position of caliphate of the Messenger of God, peace be upon him and his progeny."
The Cuba-based website indicated that " the Karbala massacre witnessed the martyrdom of the grandson of the Prophet, accompanied by 72 people from his companions and his family, against an army of 30,000 soldiers belonging to the tyrant Yazid."
