Ya Ab al-Fadl al-Abbas (as)

May Allah’s curse be on Hakim Bin Tufail (lnt) who cut off right hand and Allah’s curse be on Zaid bin Warrd (lnt) who cut off left hand of Moula Abbas (as)

“Infinite peace and blessings be upon you and your righteous and enlightening behavior, O Ab al-Fadl! Peace be upon you as you reached your high status and courageously accomplished the path you faced.

In the Ziyarat of Nahiya, Imam Mahdi (A.S.) addresses him as the following:"Peace be upon Ab al-Fadl al-Abbas, son of the commander of the believers, the one who protected his brother with his own life, and collected provisions from his past for his future. It is he who sacrificed himself for his brother, made his own life a shield, and made sufficient effort for his sake”

Words that break the heart

“But as I have been hindered by the course of time, and (Allah’s) decree has prevented me from helping you, and as I could not fight those who fought you, and was not able to show hostility to those who showed hostility to you, I will, therefore, lament you morning and evening, and will weep blood in place of tears, out of my anguish for you and my sorrow for all that befell you…” 

 —Imam al-Mahdi (PBUH) in Ziyarat al-Nahiya 

And your [al-Hussain (a)] horse wandered away towards your tents, neighing and weeping, then when your women-folk beholded your horse devoid of it’s rider and saw the saddle bent, they emerged from the tents, with disheveled hair, beating their faces, unveiled and wailing, lamenting in a dejected state after having being honored, they ran towards the spot of your martyrdom, while Shimr (the accursed) was seated upon your chest, moving his sword (upon your neck) to slaughter you, while clasping your hair in his hand, he was slaughtering you with his sword, you had turned motionless while your breathing was ceasing, (your were beheaded) and your head was raised upon the lance.
—  Ziyarat Nahiya 
Salutations from he who recognizes your sanctity, is a sincere (believer) in your guardianship, seeks nearness to Allah through your love, and is aloof from your enemies. Salutations from the one whose heart is wounded due to the tribulations you have suffered, and whose tears flow in your remembrance, Salutations from the one who is distressed, grief-stricken, distracted, and yielding, Salutations from the one, who, had he been present with you in that plain, would have shielded you from the sharpness of the swords with his body and sacrificed his last breath for you, would have struggled beside you, helped you against the aggressors, and redeemed you with his soul, body, wealth, and children, (Salutations from the one) whose soul is a sacrifice for yours and whose family is a shield for yours. But as I have been hindered by the course of time and as (Allah’s) decree has prevented me from helping you, and as I could not fight those who fought you, and was not able to show hostility to those who showed hostility to you, I will, therefore, lament you morning and evening, and will weep blood in place of tears, out of my anguish for you and my sorrow for all that befell you until I meet death from the pain of the catastrophe and the choking grief.
—  Imam Mahdi (as) to Imam Hussain (as) in Ziyarat Nahiya
