FF on Karbala


I heard a fool dilute the events of ‪‎Karbala‬,
So I asked: “Wasn’t Muhammed’s family not deprived of water?
Didn’t Abbas die in pursuit of acquiring water for the children?
Didn’t Husayn ibn Ali die on the bloody plains of Karbala?
And wasn’t the patient Zaynab unveiled?”
If all of that & more happened on those dark days of ‪‎Muharram‬,
It is undoubtedly a calamity of great magnitude.
My hands shiver by the mere thought of it & I’m no shia,
I’m from the lineage of Umar Ibn Khattab.
(peace and blessings be upon them all)
