The Battle of Karbala, A Marsiya of Anis, gives an account of the events which took place on the tenth day of the month of Muharram, beginning with the preparations for battle at dawn and culminating with the death of its hero, Husain, in the evening.

The Urdu marsiya, a long poem written on the subject of the Battle of Karbala and the martyrdom of Husain, reached its highest stage of development in Lucknow during the first half of the nineteenth century. One of the finest exponents of the genre was Anis.
