It is difficult for any observer to begin to appreciate, from the outside, the part played by the spiritual drama centred on Imam Husayn in the piety and spirituality of Muslims throughout the Islamic world. The martyrdom of this grandson of the Prophet, together with his staunchest supporters, stands forth as one of the most heroic acts of sacrifice in the history of mankind; the present book brings attention to bear on the manifold ramifications of this act in terms of spiritual consciousness and moral conscience in Muslim society. It includes also an assessment of the impact of the martyrdom on poetry, culture and religious rites and ceremonies.
