to see such person not leading the nation to the best.

details of their faces to know what his self and emotions saying. However the
silence didn’t stay for long, Imam Hussain announced by Takbeir (Allahu Akbar:
God is the greatest). His son came to him , his emotions were triggered because

you do Takbier?" Hussain AS: I tumbled my head then a caller shouted: "the
people are approaching and the death is coming to them" so I knew it is our
selves being obituary". The father of this young at his twenties surprised him
not with what pleasing youth but he surprised him with that death is waiting

whom we shall return to" Ali Akbar said: “then, it doesn’t matter to die while
we are right.”
