On the tragic day of Ashura – the tenth of Muharram 1444 AH – in Chicago USA, spots of blood were seen on a cradle which symbolically represents Imam Hussein’s six-month-old baby, Abdullah, peace be upon him. Abdullah was brutally killed on Ashura in Imam Hussein’s (peace be upon him) arms.
Undoubtedly this is one of the blessings and miracles Allah Almighty has given to the Master of Martyrs, Imam Hussein, and the Ahlulbayt, peace be upon them all.
These spots of blood, as if have fallen from the Heaven, are a tangible proof for those who are skeptical about the Cause of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him).
It is noteworthy that on every Ashura in the holy shrine of Imam Hussein, peace be upon him, and elsewhere, a piece of Karbala soil miraculously turns blood red, a reminder of the greatness of the tragedy of the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, his honorable family and companions, peace be upon them.
