Part 8 . Who is imam hussain ?

text from :

When Imam saw people ask for his help, sent one of his companions, Moslem Ibn Aqeel (Imam Hussain’s cousin and one of his best companion) to Kufa to check the situation and see how many people really want Imam Hussain (PBUH) to be their leader and caliph.
Yazid was informed by his spies. So he replaced Ubaydallah Ibn Ziyad in Kufa, ordering the latter to disperse the crowd supporting Moslem Ibn Aqeel. Ubaid-Allah treated people and killed some of them to dissuade them about Imam Hussain (PBUH). Then Moslem was found and delivered to Ibn Zyad, and while Moslem was going to send a message to Imam Hussain (PBUH) with the following: “return with your family, and don’t be deceived by the people of Kufa. They have misled you and me”, Ibn Ziyad killed him. However, the message was not received to Imam Hussain (PBUH) when he decided to leave Mecca.
