From the Historical Conquest to Conquest of the History (Case study: Hussein bin Ali)
Hosein Azizi
Abstract:   (2717 Views)
The current study seeks to test the hypothesis that "history has not been written by conquerors." This hypothesis can be proved in various ways. The people's interest in studying and recording important events, as well as the confirmation of this interest from the heavenly books that are spokespersons of human spiritual conscience, are two of the most important examples of these ways. Another way is to study the many evidence of social, political and scientific life of great men and women. These men and women in one direction are divided into two groups of historical conquerors and conquerors of history: The first is the group that has opened territories and lands. They are "historic conquerors." The second group is the ones who have opened the hearts and offices instead of the land and have replaced the Good name. These are "conquerors of history." They are the rulers of history, and in the land of hearts and pens, they are eternal. Hussein bin Ali and Yazid bin Mu'awiy are two examples of this historical dilemma. Undoubtedly, Imam Hussein and many of his companions were killed and defeated, but the history office was different and made him the "Conqueror of History", and Ashura, forever, was the model of "the victory of blood on the sword" This convincing conquest is confirmed by a few proofs. These evidences, of course, are diverse and numerous, but in this case, there are only three historical evidence to be discussed: Ashura literary literature, historical literature, and eternal mourning and tears in his martyrdom.
Keywords: Hussein bin Ali, Ashura, Conquest of history, Conquerors of history, Historical Conquest
