The Night in the Yazidian Camp
- :S.V. Mir Ahmed Ali
WHILE THE HUNGRY and thirsty devotees of God in the Holy Imam's camp spent the night in prayers and the devotional supplicative services to God, the soldiers in the Yazidian ranks in the opposite camp spent the whole night in drinking, feasting and making merry in the hope of the promised rewards from Yazid in return for the destruction of the family of the Holy Prophet. God alone knows how many thousands of bowls of wine were emptied on that night. The Yazidian forces anxiously awaited the break of the dawn of the next day to effect the brutal slaughter of the Holy Imam and the small band of his kith and kin and, faithful devotees.
