headed arrow which went through his neck

Little Asgar died in his hands with thirst and forever slept 

Husain(r.a) tasted martyrdom during prostrate

Many Companions became martyrs and were kept captive

They all Sacrificed life to protect Islam

Salute to 72 martyrs of Karbala and Salaam

He raised voice against ignorance, oppression, 

discrimination and dealt with calm

Some Muslims remember the sacrifice by hurting themselves

Others keep fasts during Ashura and perform extra prayers

Some fast, mourn and arrange processions 

And some maintain calm and silence.
