A Nawha (Elegy :- which means a poem of mourning, a reflection on the death of someone or on a sorrow generally) about the tragedies which befell Imam Hussain, his Family and his Companions, in what is known as the Battle of Kerbala, which took place on the 10th of Muharram, known as the Day of Ashura.
Recitation of Elegies to remind oneself of a certain tragedy was the practice of the Prophets and the Sahaba: www.answering-ansar.org/answers/azadari/en/chap6.php
On one side of the battlefield of Karbala, stood Imam Hussain (AS), who was raised in the house of the Prophet (SAWS) along with his family members and companions. On the other side stood the forces of Yazid, a tyrant claiming to be the representative of the Prophet (SAWS), the ruler of the Islamic Ummah, and furthermore, claiming to be the "Khalifat Allah," or the Vicegerent of God on Earth. On whose side would YOU stand on?
