Maqam Al-Imam Zayn-ul-Abidin (AS) in Syria

By: Abbas Shah

DAMASCUS, Syria: A host of pilgrims from Syria and outside world daily visit Maqam Al-Imam Zayn-ul-Abidin (AS), situated near the Syrian city of Hama.

Near the city of Hama, when one makes his way to the green knoll he finds a Jame Mosque known as Maqam Al-Imam Zayn-ul-Abidin (AS), or the Place of the Imam (AS), adorned with two beautiful domes. At the place one also finds a replica grave of Al-Imam Ali bin Al-Hussein Zayn-ul-Abidin (AS).

The Maqam consists of a grand courtyard and several rooms, which are used by the pilgrims.

Reports said that after the martyrdom of Al-Imam Al-Hussein bin Ali ibn-e-Abi Talib (AS) with his 72 companions in the desert of Karbala, Mukhadderaat-e-Ismah-wa-Taharaha the chaste ladies of the holy family of Rasulullah (SAW) and Al-Imam Zayn-ul-Abidin (AS) were imprisoned and taken to Kufa and Syria along with the holy heads of the martyrs including that of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS).

In Syria when the holy caravan reached Hama, the Imam (AS) offered prayer here and consequently the faithful took the place as mosque for prayers. Later, they made replica grave of the Imam, which has been demolished in Janna-tul-Baqi, Madinah, Saudi Arabia.

"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."
