Prophet Muhammad had two grandsons,
One was Hussain and the other Hassan.
The boys’ mother was Fatima,
She was the Prophet’s beloved daughter.
After the Prophet passed away,
Some Muslims refused to obey,
And so they began to fight,
Each group believed it was right.
Hussain tried to stop the war,
And to have peace as before’
But on the tenth of Muharram
The angry people knocked him down.
Tenth of Muharram is a special day,
When Muslims keep fast and pray,
Allah forgives the past year sins
A great blessing for all Muslims
