Abbas showed his loyalty to Hussain at the Battle of Karbala

With his courage, he drove away hordes of enemies and reached the banks of the River Euphrates. Although he was thirsty himself, he never drank a drop of water.

Abbas ibn Ali was the son of Ali ibn Abu Talib and Ummul Baneen. Abbas showed his loyalty to Hussain at the Battle of Karbala. In reality in Karbala Hazrat Abbas’ effort to satisfy God and carry out his duty, astonished the world.
In Karbala Yazid’s troops cut the water supply to the Imam’s camp.
When the young children could no longer tolerate thirst, Hazrat Abbas volunteered to bring them water. But this was almost impossible.


With his courage, he drove away hordes of enemies and reached the banks of the River Euphrates. Although he was thirsty himself, he never drank a drop of water.
After filling the goatskin water-carrier, while he was making his way towards the Imam’s camp , the cowardly enemy attacked him from all sides. One of his hands was severed when he was struck from behind.
He fought single-handedly with his left arm, which was also severed by the Omayyud marauders. Nevertheless, he spurred his horse towards the Imam’s camp hoping to take water to the thirsty children. Alas, he was not destined to do so. The enemies burst upon him like a pack of jackals and shot arrows in his eye and at his chest piercing the goatskin water-carrier and making the water flow on the ground.
Hazrat Abbas thus drank the cup of eternal martyrdom in this valiant name and the memory of this great sacrifice will remain eternal in history.
In 10th muharam even many non-Muslims bow at the threshold of
Hazrat Abbas in Karbala and beseech God Almighty through him.
