Imam Zayn al-‘Abidin's (q.s.) Lament

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Zayn al-‘Abidin (q.s.), when he was harassed by the Ummayad tyrants, said, “O Winds!  If someday you pass by the sacred land, then pass my salaam before the Rawdhah al-Aqdas, where the most exalted Prophet rests.  The sadness of separation from Madina feels like a sword stuck deep into my liver.  How fortunate are the people of that city in which is the Exalted and Beloved Prophet. O Rahmatu lil ‘Alamin!  Assist Zayn al-‘Abidin, who is standing alone and in difficulty amongst the tyrants.”
