    Re: History of Karbala

    Say:

    Sometimes we go to a place where others' beliefs are different from ours.

    And:

    We may be scoffed at and even taunted.

    (I am not sure about "scoffed at" there.)

    Smile Re: History of Karbala

    Hi Tarheel,
    Thank you. I've sent the previous part to our revision group. Now, I'm working on a new part. The new part started from post #36. If you want to help me, please focus on the new part. I don't know how I should thank you.
    Please correct my mistakes if you encounter any.

    Re: History of Karbala

    I am not sure what or where the revision group is. Anyhow, I suspect that "scoffed at" is not used much anymore. (I could be wrong.)

    Re: History of Karbala

    Orations and speeches are two things that are the same thing.

    Re: History of Karbala

    You could use "irreverence" like this:

    He disapproved of their irreverence.

    (There are other possibilities, of course.)

    Perhaps:

    His calmness was shattered. His treasure was stolen. And his family members were captured. I am the son of that man who was beleaguered by an excess of enemies. He was alone. He had no friend to help him. He was martyred alone. However, that kind of martyrdom is our honor.

    You changed "There was no friend to help him" to "he had no friend".
    Well, He surly had some loyal friends, but all of them were killed before Hussain. Hussain was the last one who was beleaguered.
