Pearl of Wisdom
'One year I went on pilgrimage with al-Sadiq (AS). When his mount came to the place of ihram, whenever he intended to say labbayka [here I am ...] his voice would cut off in his throat, and he nearly fell off his mount. So I said to him, ?O son of the Prophet, say it, for you must say it', to which he replied, ?O Ibn Abi 'Amir, how can I dare say: 'I am here O Allah! I am here' whilst I fear lest he say, 'No labbayka and no welcome for you!'

Documentary - When The Skies Wept Blood
On the Tenth Day, of the First Month of the Islamic calendar, in the year 61; on the hot desert plains of Karbala, a small group of 73 noble individuals were massacred by an army of 70,000 men.
The victims were devout followers of the religion of Islam.
The perpetrators, led by Yazeed, son of Mu'awiyah, claimed to follow that very same religion. It was a day 'When Skies Wept Blood'.
The sacrifice of Karbala is unrivalled from the dawn of time, yet the martyrdom of Hussain and his exalted 72 companions is neglected by the majority of Muslims and non muslims, alike.
Imam Hussain sought to bring justice through this great sacrifice. He did not revive the religion of Islam, he resurrected it.
Redtears brings you a historical documentary looking at the chain of events from the death of the Holy Prophet, Muhammad, to the tragic massacre of Karbala.
