Reynold Alleyne Nicholson on Imam Husain

(1868-1945) Sir Thomas Adams Professor of Arabic at the University of Cambridge.

q       "Husayn fell, pierced by an arrow, and his brave followers were cut down beside him to the last man.  Muhammadan tradition, which with rare exceptions is uniformly hostile to the Umayyad dynasty, regards Husayn as a martyr and Yazid as his murderer."
