What happened after Karbala?


Could you please tell me what happened with the bodies of Imam Hussain and people with him? Could you tell me what the people of Yazid did with the body if Imam Hussain?


A day after Imam Hussain (may Allah be pleased with him) was martyred, his blessed head was despatched with Khawali ibn Yazid and Humayd ibn Muslim to Ibn Ziyad, and then Yazid. When Yazid was presented with the head of Imam Hussain (may Allah be pleased with him), he began to poke his mouth with a cane. Abu Barzah al-Aslami, a Companion, was nearby and cried out to him; ‘Take your cane away! By God! How often have I seen the Messenger of Allah kiss that mouth!’ Even after the horrific tragedy, Yazid showed no remorse or regret whatsoever.

Eventually, the bodies were returned to the family and the burials were organized. Imam Hussain was buried in Iraq. According to some reports, his blessed head was taken to Cairo, Egypt, and buried there.
