A very concise summary of the events at Karbala: In the month of Muharram in 10AH when Yazid, son of Mu’awiya, declared himself as a ruler over the Ummah, he demanded Imam Al-Husayn’s allegiance. Imam Husayn refused to make bayat because Yazid was a tyrant and did not represent Islam and therefore tensions between the two grew.  Yazid demanded allegiance or death so with his life under threat Husyan traveled to the holy city of Mecca to seek protection for his family. When he received letters of support from Kufa he packed up and headed to the Iraqi city, but was forcibly diverted toward the desert town of Karbala.  It would be in this desert that Husayn, his family and 72 companions would face water deprivation, insults, violent attacks, and death at the hands of the 30,000 soldiers of Yazid’s army.
