8TH NIGHT OF MUHARRAM
“Master, now allow me to go to the battlefield”
Every time Hussain insisted:
“Abbas, How can I let you go? You are the captain of my army. You are my right hand man, Abbas. You are my support, Abbas. Where would I be without you”
One by one individuals from the camp of Imam Hussain were martyred.
Abbas could hear the cry’s of the women and children calling out in thirst.
Abbas finally got Imam Hussain’s permission to enter the battlefield but only to bring back water.
Yazid's soldiers saw Abbas coming. They had seen Abbas fight and knew he was like his father, Ali. They were scared, The few who dared to attack Abbas were killed by his spear. Abbas reached the river and filled the mashk.
Just then, a soldier came from behind and struck his sword on Abbas shoulder. Abbas gripped the mashk with his teeth, as his arm and spear fell to the ground.
Another soldier came and struck his sword into Abbas other shoulder. The Alam and the other arm fell to the ground.
Abbas eyes dilated with determination. He was still determined to reach the camp to bring back water.
An arrow was shot. It hit the mashk. The water began to pour out. This broke the heart of Abbas.
Abbas fell of his horse and called out for Hussain. “Oh Hussain...When I came to this world, I saw your face first. Now, as I am going from this world, Master, I would like to see your face for the last time.” Hussain placed Abbas on his lap. Abbas took his last breath and died on Hussain’s lap. “Now my back has broken”
