Sayings From Non-Muslims!
Edward Gibbon (1737-1794) Considered the greatest British historian of his time.
• “In a distant age and climate the tragic scene of the death of Hussein will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.” [The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, London, 1911, volume 5, pp. 391-2]
My faith is that the progress of Islam does not depend on the use of sword by its believers, but the result of the supreme sacrifice of Hussein, the great saint.
“If Hussein fought to quench his worldly desires, then I do not understand why his sisters, wives and children accompanied him. It stands to reason therefore that he sacrificed purely for Islam.”
Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru
Imam Hussein’s sacrifice is for all groups and communities, an example of the path of righteousness.
