The Third Imam Hazrat Imam Husain a.s. (Hz. Husain ibn. Ali a.s.) --- Sister Zainab Binte Ali (s.a.) in the court of yazid

           In the Name of the Beneficent and Merciful.

    All praises to Allah, the Creator of the entire universe.

    And salutations to the Prophet and his Ahle-Bait:

          Allah has revealed in His Book: "Evil was the end of those who did evil, because they rejected the communications ofallah and used to mock them.

                     0 Yazid: Having wrought such ill deeds and ill treatment to us, the family of the Prophet, you think- that you have managed to reduce our status, and thus have enhanced your own, and you feel that you have achieved the ultimate success in this life?

    You think that the span of your rule and the wealth and power you weald was of your own making?  Just wait a while, for the Judgement of Allah isn't far.  Just hear this: "And let not those who disbelieve think that Our granting them respite is better for their souls; We grant them respite only that they may add to their sins; and they shall have a disgraceful chastisement.  "

    0 You the progeny of the those who were set free by us: Is this justice?  Is this the way you would repay us?  Your own slaves and maids have their hijabs on, and we have been deprived this?  And we have been carried from dwelling to dwelling in such a demeaning condition?

    0 Yazid: You are responsible for the way we have been treated all the way to your court.  None of your captains had any mercy on women or children who had lost their loved ones in the heat of the desert at their hands and by your orders.

    0 You the offspring of the one who chewed up the liver of the m@, how could you be merciful?  Yeah, with the hate in your heart for the family of the Prophet, how could you show mercy on the captive survivors of the bloody massacre?

    0 Yazid: What you are saying and what you are doing to the lips and  teeth of the head of the martyr was the very place Prophet himself had kissed often.  You are calling upon your elders to witness how you have avenged them today.  You are forgetting that they were infidels and had asked for their own ends.  Beware that you have taken the same path, and your own end would not be any different from theirs.When you join diem you will regret what you had been uttering or what you had done.  But alas, that would be too late.

    0 Yazid: Verfly you have ruined your own conduct forever.  You win face Allah and the Prophet and will be accountable for the blood of the progeny of the Prophet.  Allah has revealed in His Book: “And reckon not those who are killed in Allah's way as dead, nay, they are alive (and) are provided sustenance from their Lord." The Day of Judgement isn't far.  Those who facilitated you to this position are also accountable for these sins towards the Faith and the faithful.

    0 Yazid: This certainly is circumstantial that I am here and have to address you in my present predicament.  Yeah, I cannot stop the tears in my eyes and pain in my heart.  Those who were the chosen of Allah you have slain for no sin but for fulfillment of your passion for revenge.  You are worse than your elders.  They had refused to accept the path of righteousness and had come out to fight the Messenger of Isl@ but you are supposedly on the Path but have chosen a perilous reversal from it.

    Remember: What conduct you have adopted has a bitter end.  There is Mercy in the way of Allah.  We only look towards Him for favors, and only trust Him for salvation.

    0 Yazid: You may carry out all that you have a desire for and fulfil all your wishes.  Beware: Our teachings and philosophy shall prevail, because we are the flag carriers of the Truth.  You cannot diminish our status or popularity.

    You are the loser.  You will not only lose today but are a loser for all times.  Your days are numbered, and you will face the doom alone with all your friends and supporters.  Have you read Qur'an, and did you come across this ayat?  If you haven't, then hear this: "And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah?  These shall be brought before their Lord, and the witnesses shall say: These are they who lied against their Lord. Now surely the curse of Allah is on the unjust."

    All praises are to the Supreme One, the Creator of the entire universe, the One who gave us the illustrious ancestors before, and loved ones now who laid down their lives in His way.  For us, as mentioned in the Book, the Grace of Allah-suffices: "Those to whom the people said: Surely men have gathered against you, therefore fear them; but this increased their faith, and they said: Allah is sufficientfor us and most excellent is the Protector.
