Where Is The Head Of Imam Husayn (A) Buried?

Assalamu alaykum, wa Rahmatu Allah. A very good question: where is the head of Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam? And I've heard many theories concerning the head of Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam. Theories which take the head to Palestine, others who took the head to Egypt, others who say that it's in Sham [Syria], others who went to Medina, others talked about Kufa. In other words, you see many different theories.

In my personal opinion, I believe that the head of Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam, was brought back to his body on the plains of Karbala, buried back with his body by Imam 'Ali Zayn al-'Abidin, alayhi as-salam. There's no doubt that the head did go to Kufa for a certain period. And there's no doubt that the head was with the other heads in Sham as well.

Because after Karbala, Imam al-Husayn's family and companions who remained alive were able to go to, or were taken to Karbala, Kufa, Sham, and then back to Karbala before they came back to Medina. And therefore, when they left Sham, I'm of the belief that the heads were with them.

They returned back to Karbala, and then Imam 'Ali Zayn al-'Abidin, alayhi as-salam, was able to place the head of Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam back with the body.

Wa as-salamu alaykum, wa Rahmatu Allah.
