Overview

"Saving Monotheism in the Sands of Karbala is a thorough analysis of the tragic Battle of Karbala that occurred in the nascent years after the death of Prophet Muhammad. Less than half a century had passed since the death of the Prophet establishing the religion of Islam and his grandson Hussain was martyred in the land of Karbala in what is today a pilgrimage site in Iraq." "The author provides a thorough understanding of the events that led to the event that took place on Ashura (the tenth day) of the Islamic lunar calendar month of Muharram. A historical presentation that uses verses from the Qur'an and quotes by non-Muslim writers provides a context and insight into the depth surrounding this event that is known as 'the great sacrifice', in a battle of truth against injustice." An excellent read for those unfamiliar with the history of Karbala as well as a great refresher for those already familiar with the history of the events of Ashura. In addition to the detailed history, the text also offers explanations for understanding into the ritualistic practices of generations of Muslims, particularly Shia sect, commemorating the death of Hussain.
