اَللّٰهُمَّ حَاسِبْنِىْ حِسَا بًا يَّسِيْرًا
Allahumma hasibnee hisaban yaseera.
O Allah, grant me an easy reckoning.
❝Before the sin, Satan assures us that it is of no consequence; after the sin, he persuades us that it is unforgivable.❞
❝The angels have surrounded them and peace is showered upon them. The doors of heaven are open for them and the abodes of bliss, of which He had informed them, have been prepared for them. He is pleased with their struggle and admires their station. When they call upon Him, they breathe the fragrance of His forgiveness and mercy.❞
Imam Ali (as), describing the devout believers
Ibid. pg. 343
❝Father! After your passing, people have turned away from us (The Ahl al-Bayt), though in your presence they respected us greatly. So why should tears not flow out of your separation? Why should grief and sorrow not be at our lips out of your parting? How can we sleep after your death? You were indeed the garden of this faith and a creation of light. Under this suffering, mountains would move from their place, rivers would dry up and the Earth would shake. Was the suffering of your departure worth nothing to us that after you they placed more mountains of suffering upon us?❞
— Fatima az-Zahra’s (س) eulogy at the grave of her father, Bihar al-Anwar p. 190
❝The tongue pierces deeper than the spear.❞
❝Plot your plots and widen your efforts, for by God you will not erase our memory.❞
— Lady Zainab (as) to Yazid (la)
