Excerpts from speeches of Sharikatul Hussain (SA)

By: Rifat Batool

Hazrat Zainb (AS), the elder daughter of Syedul Awsiya Hazrat Ameer al Momineen Ali ibne Abi Talib (AS) and Mistress of the Ladies of the worlds Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (AS), was born in Medina Munawwara. Her grandfather Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace of Allah be upon him & his progeny) named her Zainab – being made up of 2 words: ‘Zain’ (beauty) and ‘ab’ (of father). Her holy shrine is in Damascus, Syria.

She was that great Lady of Khanwada-e-Muhammad & Aal-e-Muhammad (PBUT) whose discerning addresses shook the foundations of Yazidi palaces.

Here are some excerpts of the speeches of Hazrat Zainab (AS) delivered in Bazaars of Kufa & Syria and courts of Yazid (curse of Allah be upon him) and Ibnay Ziad (curse of Allah be upon him):

In Kufa she said: “O people of Kufa! O you deceivers! You traitors! You sinners! Now you weep? May God never diminish the flow of tears and may your hearts forever burn with grief and sorrow! Your false pledges contain no element of truth and sincerity. Now you are weeping for my brother and raise wailing cries after him? Yes, by God you weep because you deserve it. The stain of the unjustly shed blood of my brother is on your forehead and you can never wipe it off.

O the people of Kufa! Woe be upon you! Do you know which part of Mohammad you have cut and the vow that you have broken and whose blood you have shed and whose sanctity you have violated?

By killing your Imam you have assumed responsibility for such a disgraceful, grievous and gruesome deed. Would you doubt if after all blood rains from the skies above? Remember! The punishment of the day of judgment which will be more severe and extremely harsh!”

In the court of Ibn Ziyad (curse of Allah be upon him), she addressed when he said: “Praise be to God who has disgraced you, killed you, dishonored you and revealed the false nature of your claims.”

Hazrat Zainab (AS) answered, “Praise be to God who has favored us with His Prophet Mohammad (PBUH&HP) and has purified us from every kind of dirt. He only disgraces the great sinner and reveals the false nature of the profligate. Such men are not among us, praise be to God… I have not known but benevolence and goodness emanating from God! As for my people, God has ordained upon them the blessings of martyrdom. They therefore came out and took to defensive war and got martyred. Oh Ibn Ziyad God will bring you all and all our martyrs together in one place, where you will offer excuses and surely you will be disputed. Oh Ibn Ziyad! May your mother weep over you ….”

In the court of Yazid (curse of Allah be upon him), she said after she saw Yazid (curse of Allah be upon him) disrespecting the head of her brother with a cane: “God says, and He says the truth, the end of miscreants will be awful, those who belied the signs of God and mocked them. O Yazid, do you feel that you have made our life miserable and existence impossible? And you think that God has dishonored us and that you have been honored and elevated? This apparent success of yours is the result of grandeur of your might and lofty status for which you are proud…. You feel that you have conquered the whole world and your affairs are organized and that our domain is now under you control… Wait! Wait! Let not your ignorance make you so elated for have you not heard God's words - Let not those who disbelieve think that our giving them respite is good for themselves. We only give respite to them so that they may increase in sins and for them is a disgraceful chastisement. (3:177)

O you the son of freed slaves! Is this your justice that the ladies of your house remain veiled and we the Prophet (PBUH&HP)'s daughters (AS) should be paraded from place to place? You have thus insulted our dignity…. Your misdeed has proved your rebellion against God…. And this action of yours comes as no surprise from a person whose ancestors chewed the liver of such saintly martyrs. The descendants of such enemies of God should naturally be the most deadly!

O Yazid! You are happily disrespecting the teeth of Hussain (AS) even though it was the place of kissing for the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HP)!

O Yazid! You did what you wished, but remember that you have cut your own skin; In the near future you will be taken in the presence of the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HP). On that occasion you will be burdened with the sins of the misdeed committed by you shedding the blood of his progeny (AS).”


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."
