The captives' movement from the children, women, and people of the house of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), is considered as the second phase of the Hussayni upraising, without which , the sacrifices of the Master of martyrs and his companions (peace be upon them), would have been lost. This stage which began after his martyrdom (peace be upon him), when Ibn Saad took the remnants of the family of Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), as captives walking from Karbala to Kufa and from Kufa to the Levant.
The historians mention that many cities witnessed the passage of the procession of the captives from the family of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and the holy heads, and in many places, there are shrines built for the stations where the procession passed. And there is no doubt that the head of al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) was not buried there, but was placed in it for some time, including the city of Hama.
Hama is a village that was a work of Homs, with a stone wall, and a large building with stones, and a River ran in front of it and irrigated its orchards and ran its waterwheels, and it is an ancient Jahili city, mentioned by Imru Al Qais in his poetry.
And some scholars stated: that he went on the pilgrimage route in Hama and saw in its gardens a mosque called the Al-Hussayn Mosque (peace be upon him), so he entered the mosque and saw in some of its buildings a veil covering a wall, saying: So I raised it and I saw a stone erected in a wall, on which there is a trace of a neck and trace of blood! I asked some of the mosque’s servants: What is this stone, trace, and blood? It was told to me: This stone is the location of the head of Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), and it was placed by the people who were carrying it to Damascus.
