Sunni References for Ashoora

me and two other friends are giving a speech at our university that will cover the battle of Karbala as accepted by all of Islam. This is for a very anti-shia crowd and everyone has been talking about how they are going to tear us down all week. The presentation is tomorrow (feb 3rd - I know, kinda late) and I need some help verifying few incidences that happened after sham-e-gareeba.

I need sunni references, chain of narrations for the following:

-Bibi Sakina (as) crying on her father's martyred body

-speech by Bibi Zainab (as) in Kufa

-placing of the head of Imam Hussain (as) on a gold tray in front of Ibn Zayd and Yazid

-Yazid poking the Imam Hussain's (as) teeth with his stick

-the speech of Bibi Zainab (as) in the court of Yazid

One of the allegations they have raised against us is that Shias exaggerate, so although these are details we accept, I need sunni verifications.

Please help with any well known sunni historians. All help appreciated

Salam Brother/Sister,

Its good to hear that you have been chosen to spread the message of Al Imam al Hussein (as) but its a shame that you have left so many questions until the last minute, especially when you have to speak in front of people who are clearly in need of guidance. I know that you have put specific questions in your post, but the most I can personally recommend are the following articles:



These may not have the specific answers you need but they have used SUNNI sources to prove their argument. I hope this helps and may Allah bring you success.
