Karbala Arabic: Tens of millions of Shi'ite Muslims visit the site twice a year, rivaling Mecca as a place of pilgrimage. Most of the pilgrims travel on foot from all around Iraq and more than 56 countries. There are many opinions among different investigators, as to the origin of the word "Karbala". Some have pointed out that "Karbala" has a connection to the "Karbalato" language, while others attempt to derive the meaning of word "Karbala" by analyzing its spelling and language. This last name is today known as Al-Hair and is where Husayn ibn Ali's grave is located.
The original shrine was destroyed by the Abbasid Caliph Al-Mutawakkil in but was rebuilt in its present form around , only to be partly destroyed by fire in and rebuilt yet again. Early modern[ edit ] Like Najaf , the city suffered from severe water shortages that were only resolved in the early 18th century by building a dam at the head of the Husayniyya Canal.
In , the city replaced Isfahan in Iran as the main centre of Shia scholarship. In the mid-eighteenth century it was dominated by the dean of scholarship, Yusuf Al Bahrani , a key proponent of the Akhbari tradition of Shia thought, until his death in ,  after which the more state-centric Usuli school became more influential. The fight lasted for 8 hours. In order to reassert their authority, the Ottoman army laid siege to the city.
On January 13, Ottoman troops entered the city. Many of the city leaders fled leaving defense of the city largely to tradespeople. The Turks lost men. The Shia-ruled Indian Province of Awadh , known by the British as Oudh, had always sent money and pilgrims to the holy city.
One third was to go to his wives, and the other two-thirds went to holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. Once they reached Karbala, forces surrounded their small band and blocked their access to the water supply. With both camps stationed at Karbala, a stalemate ensued.
Hussain had made it clear that he could not, and would not, bow to Yazid. After a week, word reached Hussain that Yazid had sent orders that he was not to be allowed to leave Karbala until he had taken an oath of allegiance. The end was drawing close. That night Hussain assembled his group, stressing to them that it was his life that Yazid wanted and that they might be able to escape.
There he stood, amongst his family and companions, all having been deprived of water in the scorching desert for three days, pleading with them to leave him and save themselves!
After a few days of this stalemate, the government forces were commanded to attack and kill Hussain and his companions.
Throughout the day the forces of Yazid asked Hussain for his allegiance, yet Hussain resisted. Eventually Hussain was alone with no one left to support him. Fatigued, thirsty, and heavily wounded, Hussain fell to the ground as the women and children looked on.
She refused to be subdued and put her fear to one side so she could hold to account those responsible for the moral decay of society. Despite the pervasive sexism of society at the time, Zainab managed to lead and inspire both men and women.
Today millions of people pay homage to Hussain ibn Ali for his stand and annually mourn the tragic Battle of Karbala in which Hussain, his family and loyal companions were brutally killed one by one. Pilgrims from all walks of life visit the Imam Hussain shrine to pay their respects in the city of Karbala, Iraq.
