amirul mumineen


Imam Ali (as) secretly used to visit the grave of Fatima (sa) every night and weep out of sadness to the extend that he would even faint some nights. “One night in a dream while there, Imam Ali (a) heard Fatima (sa) talk to him and she told him O’ Amirul Mumineen, you’ve left four orphans in the house go back to them”. Imam Ali (as) returned home. All of his children were sleeping except for Zaynab. He saw Zaynab on the prayer mat of her mother and asked what she was doing. Zaynab replied “my mother normally wakes up at prays at this time so I want to be by the prayer mat of my mother”
