Zahra’s speech describes the social conditions after
usurpation of Caliphate and identifies the ills in politics
In the end we refer to five points
indicated by Zahra to Ansaar ladies in her speech. And we
end this volume thereat.
The ladies visited Zahra to see her and
inquire into her health because Zahra was sick at home as
her sides were broken due to the door falling on her by the
kick of her enemy.
Zahra sketched to them a picture of
society of tomorrow – a society deprived of Imamate and
Guardianship of Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s.) and molded into the
present illegitimately running government:
“Beware of pulled out swords, sharp and
destructive – and a tyrant attack advancing atrocities and a
haughty stubbornness of oppressors.
All your affairs will be upset except the
haughtiness of tyrant and you will be given your lot but
Your gatherings will be separated by
swords. You will harvest nothing but fruit of disappointed
hope. Where will you go; and where will your destiny end.”
A history of thirteen years of national
rivalry from Saqifah and finally its surrender to Bani
Umayyah who held it so tightly under their claws showed
deviation of Muslims from the path prescribed by Quran
through His Prophet and the Prophet announced it in Ghadeer.
The consequences that followed – how horrible, how dreadful
and how destructively fatal!
It was not only the matter of tyranny to Ahle Bayt (a.s.).
The tyrannies committed against the dearest ones to God,
against the purified personalities of time immemorial cannot
be confined to writing by any pen. Although endeavors were
made to make history forget or take it as little as possible
the rightfulness of Ali to Caliphate, which was usurped so
openly by the conspiracy
