What was the situation in Kufah when Imam Hussain (AS) was moving towards Karbala?

SHAFAQNA – On their way to Karbala, in a place in Iraq called “Al-Safah” the caravan of Imam Hussain (AS) met people who were travelling from Kufah to Mecca. One of those was Farazdaq the poet who was a follower of Ahlul Bait (AS). After greeting him, Imam Hussain (AS) asked him about the situation in Kufah. With regret and sorrow, Farazdaq replied: I came out of Kufah whilst the hearts of people were with you, but their swords against you [1]!
