What is Hussain Day?
Every year, many students around the world who are lovers of Imam Hussain (AS), hold an event on the day of Ashura called “Hussain Day”. Hussain – the grandson of prophet Muhammad – was a 7th century revolutionary leader who made the ultimate sacrifice for social justice in the face of corruption. On the 10th of October 680 AD (Ashura) at the battle of Karbala, Hussain, his family, and his 72 companions gave their lives defending the universal principles of humanity, justice, and faith.
Join us for the “Hussain Day” presented by Ahlul Bayt Student Association (ABSA). Hussain Day is an international campaign across universities to raise awareness about peace and justice. Free donuts and water bottles are passed out with a tag attached that depicts a short message about Hussain, who he was, and what he stood for. For more information please contact us.
