Hazrat Abul Fazl Abbas, the Lion of Allah.

Hazrat Abul Fazl Abbas, the Lion of Allah, the Greatest Warrior and Powerful Military Commander of his Age, who single handedly could have completely annihilated the Yazidi army at the battlefield of Karbala on the Ashura day, sacrificed his life only to obey the order of Imam-e-Zamana of his Age (Imam Husain), who ordered the bravest Lion of Allah only to fetch water for the three days severely thirsty children of the holy Ahlulbayt.

Hazrat Abbas, the Lion of Allah with a lightning offensive easily conquered the Eupharates river bank by killing and injuring hundreds of the heavily armed and well fed Yazidi soldiers, who were occupying the river bank and blocking the life saving essential water supply to the camps of Imam Husain, which was encircled by eighty thousand strong fully equipped Yazidi forces which gathered at Karbala in Iraq from the different parts of the Islamic world to Marty Imam Husain.

The Yazidi army completely blockaded the water supply to Imam Husain, his family members and his companions since 6th Muharram and on 10th Muharram, the eventful day of the historical battle of the human history, in which Imam Husain and his 72 members army comprising his children, brothers and companions, who were hungry and severely thirsty for last three days valiantly waged the holy defense and were martyred on the plain of Karbala on the day of Ashura, tenth day of the month of Muharram.

Imam Husain did not gave orders to Hazrat Abbas, the Lion of Allah to wage war but onlybordered him to fetch a pitcher of water from the Eupharates River for the thirty children of the Holy Ahlulbayt, who were severely thirsty since last three days.

Abbas, the Alamdar of Imam Husain, the Great Lion of Allah Almighty and Commander of the 72 members army of Imam Husain, conquered the bank of Eupharates river by crushing the Yazidi army who were trampled while fleeing the offensive from the Great Lion of Allah.

Hazrat Abbas who was severely thirsty and hungry since last three days entered the Eupharates River with his horse and filled the pitcher with water.

The Great Lion of Allah Almighty who himself was severely thirty did not drank even a sip of water and rushed with his horse toward the camps of Imam Husain, to fetch the water for the thirsty children of the Holy Ahlulbayt.

Hazrat Abbas whose sole aim now was to carry the pitcher of water for the thirsty children of the Holy Ahlulbayt was defending the pitcher of water.

By noticing this situation the huge Yazidi army encircled Hazrat Abbas from all sides. First his both hands were lost in the massive attack by Yazidi army and the pitcher of the water which was being defended by Hazrat Abbas was hit by the arrow fired by Hurmula, the famous arrow thrower of the Arab world.

Hazrat Abbas who was severely injured in this massive attack with loud voice sent his last Salaam to his Imam-Zamana Imam Husain, who hurriedly came near his loving faithful brother while he was profusely crying but Hazrat Abbas pleaded and requested his loving Imam not to carry his martyed body to the camps because he is not able to fetch water for the thirsty children of Holy Ahlulbayt.

Hazrat Abbas, who if had obtained the permission from Imam-Zamana to wage war, would have single handedly have completely crushed and annihilated the Yazidi army, sacrificed his life only to bring water for the children of the Holy Ahlulbayt.
