Imam Zayn al-‘Abidin's (q.s.) Condition at Swalah

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

It is written in Aw’arif al-Ma'arif that when Imam Zayn al-‘Abidin (q.s.) performed wudhu, his face used to become pale, and when he stood in swalah, then his complexion would change to such an extent, that it would be difficult to recognise him.  The people would ask, “O Beloved of the Prophet, what has happened to you?”

And he would reply, “O People!  Swalah is a time when you are present in the Court of Allah.  Who is so naive as to smile and look happy, when he is standing before his Creator?”
