This series of lectures aims to explore the event of Karbala from its core – as a massacre, rather than as a ‘battle’ or ‘tragedy’. The words ‘battle’ can give a misleading implication that Karbala was a kind of evenly fought battle and ‘tragedy’ only focuses on the emotional dimension of the maryrdoms. ‘Massacre’, however, is perhaps a more realistic term for the event; the outright killing of al-Husayn (a.s), his family and companions which violated what we call today ‘basic human rights‘. The lectures, therefore, will adopt this tone and examine how the Massacre of Karbala can offer intellectual frameworks to Muslim scholars and humanity by which to think about three key concepts central to the development of a society: justice, faith and education.
