Allah, the Most High, calls for justice and abhors injustice and tyranny due to the fact that through justice souls and rights are kept and all human beings are alike before law, unlike injustice .

Injustice results in political and social unstabilty as problem and troubles of different kinds will accordingly arise .

Considering the injustice and tyranny performed by Yazeed and the Ummayd power, Imam Husain 's ( pbuh) found no way but standing against such tyranny and injustice ; his revolution was considered a reform for what the Islamic Ummah had suffered .
