Abstract:   (1224 Views)
A place has long been known as Imam Hussein’s sacrifice pit among the common people. As the historical sources and a reliable tradition testify, Imam Hossein's martyrdom has happened in a place other than what is now commonly believed among ordinary people. Certainly, the belief in such a thing will have some consequences. One of them is the emotional aspect mentioned in the contemporary sources and biographies of the martyrs. The difference in interpretation, the existence of the strange words in the traditions and the engagement with the weak hadiths could be considered as the factors causing such an interpretation regarding the Ashura event and consequently could be the source of such a groundless belief among the common people.
Keywords: Imam Hossein (AS), Karbala Event, Sacrifice Pit.
