“Keeping the message of Imam al-Husayn alive is a duty of every Muslim who wishes to honour the Prophet and his message. The present book by Ayatollah Najmi puts the message of al-Husayn before our eyes in his own words and sayings. The beautiful rendition of Dr. Fakhr-Rohani makes this message evermore accessible for the English reader.” Sheikh Muhammad Saeed Bahmanpour, Head of Research, Islamic Centre England
“This book marks an important moment in the history of Shi‘ism in the Western world... an absolute must” Dr. John Andrew Morrow, Associate Professor, and Distinguished Faculty Member at Ivy Tech
"Certainly one of the most significant contributions to Ashura literature. It deserves to be incorporated in any library which claims to offer important resources on the history and character of Shi‘ite Islam." Rev. Dr. F. Peter Ford, Jr. Assistant Professor of Islamic Studies, Near East School of Theology, Beirut, Lebanon
