On 24th Dhul-Hijjah, a group of Najran Christians disputed with  the Prophet of Islam (s.a.w.a) and he was henceforth directed to call them for Mubahilah (malediction).

Whoever disputes with thee in this matter after (full) knowledge has come to thee, say: "Come! let us gather together, our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!" (Qur'an 3: 61)

The Prophet (s.a.w.a) in compliance with this divine instruction, carried Husain (a.s) in his arms, leading Hasan (a.s) by the arms, then followed by his beloved daughter, Hazrat Fatima (a.s) and behind whom was Ali son of Abu-Talib (a.s). From this, Hasan and Husain (our sons); Hazrat Fatimah (our women) and Hazrat Ali (ourselves) respectively. The Najran Christians rejected the proposal for Mubahilah owing to the calibers of people with the prophet (s.a.w.a) and they agreed to be paying taxes instead.

Without ant doubt, the event of Mubahilah marked the victory of Islam over Christianity and likewise it proved the lofty position of the members of Ahlul-Bayt (a.s) in Islam.
