After Imam Ali (PBUH) was assassinated by Kharijites in 661, Six months later in 661, Imam Hassan Mojtaba (PBUH) who highly regarded for his wisdom, the Second Imam of Shia and the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), had to make a treaty with Mu’awiyah (from Umayyad, who made himself the caliph by force and threat) . This treaty was on the conditions just to keep the people safe and secure. However, Muawiyah broke the conditions and began the Umayyad dynasty, with its capital in Damascus. This brought to an end the era of the Rightly Guided Caliphs for Muslims. On his deathbed Mu’awiyah appointed his son Yazid to succeed him. Yazid was oppressive, and Imam Hussain (PBUH) felt that it was his duty to confront him, because Muslims are asked by God to stand against oppression and fade it.
