To mark the great sacrifice by the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed PBUH....He preferred to lay his life for the sake of Islam rather than compromising with unethical infidel ruler called Yazeed....His shahadat ( martyrdom) happened on the 10th od Muharram, so we observe fast for the day, I am fasting, are you?
