When the captives comprising of the blessed household of our Beloved Prophet Muḥammad () chained, heartbroken, and wounded were brought to the court of Ibn Ziyād (Yazīds governor in Kūfa) he asked Lady Zaynab radi Allahu ‘anha (Imām ‘Alī’s eldest daughter (radi Allahu ‘anhu) and, Imam Ḥusayn’s sister (radi Allahu ‘anhu)):

“Did you see what God brought to your brother Ḥusayn?”

She replied:

“By God, I saw nothing but beauty.”
