In the Bazzar of Shaam
Easy, O' hurrying steps
Watch out for you may step on the
tear drops of the Beloveds of Allah
dripping blood of the captured ones
footprints of the oppressed
as disrespect is the law of this land, watch out. . .

Injustice against the Courageous Daughters of Islam
Like her mother, Lady Zainab was born into a household blooming with the choicest blessings of the Almighty. They both had the greatest of upbringings - one by the Prophet and Lady Khadija, the other by Imam Ali and Lady Fatima (peace be upon them all). The tragedies that Lady Zainab faced were many: the Ummah committed atrocities against her blessed family, they were treated as prisoners in the cities that they used to live in, they were prevented from mourning their losses, and what was rightfully theirs was snatched away. . .

The Blessings of Rajab
Dawood was the foster brother of Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (peace be upon him), and the great-grandson of Imam Hasan (peace be upon him). The ruler of the time had taken Dawood prisoner; Dawood's mother, Fatima, was distraught at having no knowledge of her son's condition. When she fell ill, the Imam visited her and learned of her worries. . .
