Imam Alhussain, or Alhussain ibn Ali ibn Ab Talib, was the third Shia Imam, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, the son of Ali ibn Abi Talib and Fatima. The day of his death during a battle with the army of Caliph Yazid celebrated by Shiites as Ashura mourning. Shia's tradition considers Alhussain a martyr and saint.
