Habib Ibn Muzahir in Ashura

Habib Ibn Muzahir in Ashura

Habib Ibn Muzahir heard what that rogue had said, so he responded to him by saying, "Do you claim that prayers are not accepted from the Prophet's Family but yours are accepted, you ass?!" Al-Hasin charged at him, so Habib slapped the face of al-Hasin's horse, causing it to leap and throw its rider on the ground. Al-Hasin's men had to rush to his rescue and to carry him away to safety.28

Habib, despite his advanced age, fought them valiantly, killing as many as sixty-two men. Badil Ibn Sarim attacked him and dealt a sword blow to him as a man from Tamim hit him with his lance. Habib now fell on the ground.

As he attempted to stand up again, al-Hasin hit him with his sword on the head, causing him to fall again on his face. The man from Tamim alighted and severed Habib's head. Habib being thus killed shook al-Husayn (‘a) who said, "It is only to Allah that I complain about what has happened to me and to my companions."29 For a good while, the Imam (‘a) kept repeating the statement: Inna-Lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajia'un [We belong to Allah, and to Him is our return].

The severed head was hung around a mare's neck. When the people of Kufa saw that, one of them, the son of Habib Ibn Muzahir, a young teenager, assaulted its rider and cut his head off."
