Commander of faithful (s)s sad words on Umm-e-Abiha (s)s martyrdom

By: Syeda Bint-e-Zahra

Third of Jamadius Saani (according to famous narrations) is that sorrowful, pathetic and grievous day when the beloved daughter of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace of Allah be upon Him and his pure progeny) was martyred in the year 11 AH in Medina al-Munawwara shortly after the departure of Chief of Prophets from this world.

She expressed her sorrows in an elegy composed by herself to mourn her father Holy Prophet: (After your death O` father) I was subjected to such tortures and tyranny that if they had been inflicted on the 'Days', it would have turned into 'Nights'.

Ameer Al-Momineen Hazrat Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S) at the time of burying his beloved companion expressed the following pathetic words:

O the Prophet of Allah salam upon you from me and your daughter who is being buried near to you and who has joined you so soon. O the messenger of Allah, the passing away of your daughter has lessened my patience and I have lost my energy and power. After having endured your separation I have to bear this catastrophe also so patiently. I laid you down in the grave with my own hands; your soul departed from your body while your head was lying between my neck and heart. 'Surely we belong to Allah and to Him we shall return'. (Fatimah) was a trust (entrusted to me) and a souvenir that is taken back from me. Now my sorrow grief and pain is eternal, lasting and overwhelming. It has left me with sleepless nights till Allah chooses for one Realm where you abide. Soon your daughter will inform you that how your Ummah made alliance to ill-treat and oppress her. Ask her the details of what all has happened to her, even though neither a long period passed away after your departure nor people stopped from talking about you. My farewell salam upon both of you (You and Your daughter) not such a salam which is from sad and weary heart (it is from sincere heart which loved and will always love you both). If I go back from (this place) it is not because I am tired of your company; and if I make a permanent abode by your grave it will not be because I am distrustful and suspicious from that reward which Allah has promised with those who bear sorrows patiently.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"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."

(Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
