The Severed Head of Husain Recites the Word of God
- :S.V. Mir Ahmed Ali
THE DEVIL'S ARMY marched with severed heads of the martyrs raised on their lances. Among the heads, were the head of the baby son of Husain, Ali-e-Asghar. It is now left to the tender hearts of gentle women to imagine in their own places, what would have been the feelings of the mothers, the sisters and the children among the captives who were marched along with the army, looking all the time at the severed heads of their dear ones, on the points of the lances raised before their eyes. Historians, reporting the gruesome events of the great tragedy, say that people noticed the lips of the severed head of the Holy Imam moving, and when people applied their ears carefully, they heard the Holy lips uttering clearly the following verse of the Chapter 'Kalif' of the Holy Qur'an :-
The one who heard the recital of the sacred words, immediately cried out saying:
Since its severance from its body, the holy head of Husain till its burial after about a year of remaining in the custody of the Brute at Damascus, it manifested miracles after miracles proving the Unity of God, the glory of the Lord of the Universe, the bona-fide of the apostleship of his grandfather, the Holy Prophet Muhammad, and the truthfulness of Islam, as God's prescribed religion for Mankind as a whole.
