In the Name of God; the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful
“Whoever works evil will not be requited but by the like thereof, and whoever works a righteous deed whether man or woman and is a believer such will enter Paradise, therein will they have abundance without measure.” 40:40
WHY DID IMAM HUSAIN TAKE HIS FAMILY?
One of the questions regarding the story of Karbala is why did Imam Husain take his family to Karbala, knowing he along with his companions would all be martyred; knowing his wife, sister, daughters and other girls and ladies would be taken as captives?
In general, when we go for a trip we usually don`t take our family with us, especially young children and babies, if we are expecting some difficulties.
The question then arises as to why did the Imam take his family with him?
To answer this question, I`m going to demonstrate as long as the time permits, some of the roles ladies played in the story of Karbala.
