Imam Husayn’s Message to the Army of Yazid

On the day of Ashura facing the army of Yazid, Imam Husayn a.s. said:-

O Men! Verily the Messenger of Allah said: "If someone sees a cruel king who permits those things which have been forbidden by Allah, who disregards his duty, who opposes the way of the Messenger of Allah and acts amongst the servants of Allah sinfully and aggressively, and that person does not do anything, in action or speech, to change the situation, then it would be right for Allah to place that person (on the Day of Judgement) alongside the tyrant ruler."
