SHAFAQNA – It is narrated that Imam Hussain (AS), his family and companions were on their way and to rest for a short while, Imam (AS) placed his head on the saddle of his horse and went to sleep. When he woke up, he repeated 3 times: “We are from God and we will return to God and praise be to Allah (SWT).”
Imam’s son, Hazrat Ali Akbar (AS) who was watching his father, came forward and said: What was the reason for saying those words? Imam (AS) replied: When I fell sleep, I saw a caller saying: This group is going but death is seeing them off. Hazrat Ali Akbar (AS) asked: Isn’t the path we are going, the path of truth? Imam (AS) replied: Yes, swear to God, it is. Ali Akbar (AS) said: Our way is the way of the truth, then we have no fear of death .
