The Massacre of Karbala: A Historical Analysis


The Massacre of Karbala: A Historical Analysis" from the Sunni tradition.

"Is it appropriate for you to kill the likes of me? I am the son of the daughter of your Prophet. There is no other grandson of a prophet who remains on the face of the earth aside from me."

Journey back in history to revisit one of the most controversial and misconstrued events in Islamic history: The Massacre of Karbala.

Are Sunnis 'on the side of Yazid' or 'on the side of Husayn'? Who is to blame for the death of Husayn? Should we curse Yazid?

Join Dr. Yasir Qadhi as he analyzes and contextualizes the events that led up to the martyrdom of al-Husayn (radiAllahu `anhu), its occurrence and aftermath.
