In the Name of God بسم الله
Salam my fellow brothers and sisters, I had a question regarding the death of the 3rd Imam, Hussein(as). While having a discussion with a Sunni friend of mines about shi'a beliefs he brought up the idea that the people of present day Karabla ancestors had killed the 3rd Imam(as). He then claimed this was the reason behind the hitting of oneself on Ashura. They felt responsible and this was a way to show their sorrow to the Imam. My questions are as followed: 1. Does this story have any truth to it? 2. If it doesn't, why would our sunni brothers claim this? 3. If there is any truth to it, can someone explain the story to me with a reliable source to back it up? Peace be upon you all and much thanks to those that can help a brother on his path of knowledge.
