Syeda Zainab (sa)’s sermon in Kufa
When Zaynab (sa) reached Kufa, she addressed people with fury words:
“Praise to Allah, and may the blessing of Allah be upon Muhammad (saw) and
his progeny. O people of Kufa! You are hypocrites and deceitful. You feign to
be sorry for the death of my brother and his companions. May you always
shed tears. I find nothing in you but flattery, evil acts and thoughts, pride and
spite and ill-will. By Allah! You deserve lasting sorrow instead of joy. Shame
on you, your hands are embrued with the blood of the son of the Holy Prophet,
the one who was your sole refuge in case of adversity. By your evil act and
disloyalty, you incurred the wrath of Allah against you. Woe betides you! No
one will intercede with Allah for you”.
Her furious words provoked people of Kufa to avenge Imam al-Hussein’s (as) martyrdom
which frightened Ibn Ziyad (la) and his cruel agents. She also delivered a furious sermon in
the court of Yazeed (la) that made his authority and despotic rule feel undermined. She
“I fear no one but Allah. Make whatever evil plot you can. Blazes are waiting for you in the
hereafter. You will be accountable to Allah for your atrocities”.
