Imam Hussain Tours

Nurturing Souls, Bridging Hearts

Imam Hussain (a.s) arrived in the land of Karbala on the second day of Muharram, 61 A.H. Imam ordered the pitching of tents. Seeking to purchase the land from the Banu Asad tribe, who inhabited the area, he offered them 60,000 dirhams. The tribesmen remonstrated saying that the accursed land was fallow and never did anything grow in it, and therefore no useful purpose would be served in buying it.

Imam Hussain (a.s.) replied, “This land will become fertile with my blood and the blood of my kin and companions, and people will soon inhabit it and my Shia (followers) will visit it as a place of pilgrimage.
