Imam Ali ibne Musa Al Reza (a.s) said
“O son of Shabeeb! Muharram is such a month that the Arabs of the age of ignorance (pre-Islamic) too respected its sanctity and forbade oppression and blood-shed in it.But these people (the Umayyads) did not honour the sanctity of this month nor of their Prophet. In this month they killed the son of the Prophet and imprisoned the women-folk after looting and plundering their belongings. Verily Allah will never ever forgive this crime of theirs.”
[Nafasul Mahmum Relating to the heart rending tragedy of Karbala’ Chapter 3, Section 2, Tradition 1]
