Sayings of Imam Sajjad (a.s) on the Karbala Tragedy

Once a man came to Imam Ali Ibn al-Hussein Zaynul Abideen (a.s) and said that years have passed on Karbala Tragedy but you still weep. You should stop weeping now. You and your forefathers themselves said ‘martyrdom is our inheritance’ then if your father, uncle, brothers and companions of your father were martyred, why you weep?

"O man! Martyrdom is our inheritance," Imam replied adding that but, was it also our inheritance that veils of daughters of prophet whom even the sun had not seen were taken away, they were fixed in ropes with their hands after their necks, their tents were set on fire, they were seated on bare backs of camels, and brought to the bazaars of Syria and Kufa and courts of Yazid and Ibn-e-Ziad??

- Surely, I have never brought to mind the martyrdom of the children of Fatimah (a.s) except that I have been choked with tears due to it.

- to Imam Ali Ibn al-Hussein (a.s) used to say: Every Mu'min, whose eyes shed tears upon the killing of Hussein Ibn Ali (a.s) and his companions, such that the tears roll down his cheeks, Allah shall accommodate him in the elevated rooms of paradise.

- We, descendants of the Noble Prophet of Islam (a.s), have been trained from childhood to face afflictions and sufferings. We know that those who are loved by Allah are tried by Him and if they remain steadfast and true to their faith in Him, then only He bestows His Divine favors on them in the life hereafter which is permanent and not transitory like this worldly life.
