The Martyr of Karbala
'Shaheed-e-lnsaniyyat' By Allama Ali Naqi Naqvi

Translated by S. Ali Akhtar Rizvi

This is the first English translation of the 'Allama's much esteemed Urdu book, Shaheed-e insaniyyat, a work which was written over half a century ago to commemorate the thirteen hundredth anniversary of the tragedy of Karbala. It is one of the most comprehensive accounts of the story of Imam Husain's life and death, written in a style which is at once lucid and moving. This work helps explain why it is that this event of human history continues not only to elicit unending sympathy, and grief, but also to give rise to ever-deepening piety and elucidation of the principles of the faith. In the words of the preface by Karrar Husain, 'Throughout the ages the tragedy of Karbala has stirred the depths of human emotion and evoked a frenzy of grief, and has led deeply agitated hearts through a spiritual catharsis to a shore of deep peace and understanding'
