This book is a collection of three speeches delivered by the distinguished scholar Mr. Seyyed Mojtaba Hosseini at the headquarters of the Islamic Culture Broadcasting Institute in 2013 on the occasion of Arba’een. In these lectures, Mr. Hosseini has examined the secret why Ashura has prevailed for so long – a highly important issue – from a scholarly, research-minded perspective. Therefore, Islamic Culture Broadcasting Institute has decided to publish the written form of the lectures as a book.
We would like to appreciate Mr. Hosseini’s efforts. May these endeavors meet the approval of Imam Husayn (PBUH), the Master of Martyrs.
Naturally, transcribing lectures into written form may call for minor modifications, but we have done our best to minimize editing so as to preserve the speeches in their original form. We hope our dear readers will find this book useful and enlightening.
O Lord! Bestow upon us a fate which will make You satisfied and us emancipated.
