On the evening of Tasu'ss (the ninth day of Moharram), the enemies attacked on Imam Hossein's army. The Imam sent his brother – Abul Fazl- to the enemiy to inform them that the Imam intended to say prayer and dissuades them from fighting on that night.
The Imam also said to his brother to tell them that on Ashura (the tenth day of Moharram) they will fight but that night (Tasu'aa) he was going to pray to God.
