Hazrat Umme Rubaab (sa) was the mother of two offspring, namely Bibi Sakina (sa) and Hazrat Ali Asghar (as).  The inclusion of a recently born infant in Imam’s company serves as more evidence supporting the assertion that his intentions did not involve participating in any form of military uprising.

At Karbala, Hazrat Ali Asghar’s age was just six months. Starting with the seventh day of the Islamic month of Muharram, a scarcity of water was observed within the encampment of the revered Imam. Hazrat Ali Asghar (as) experienced significant discomfort due to extreme thrust and dehydration.

Hazrat Umme  Rubaab (sa) proceeded to alter the attire of Hazrat Ali Asghar (as). She proceeded to fasten a small turban upon His cranium. Similar to any typical mother, Hazrat Umme Rubaab (sa) desired Her son to present himself in an exemplary manner when in the presence of unfamiliar others.

Imam Hussain, (as) brought Hazrat Ali Asghar (as) to the battlefield. Approaching the troops of Yazid, Imam Hussain (as) spoke, O Cruels “This young individual has not inflicted any damage against you.” My son is experiencing severe thrust, He is restless and pining like a fish without water.

He proceeded to part his lips, revealing His desiccated tongue, which He proceeded to moisten by running it across His lips. The sword of utmost significance has been drawn from its scabbard!

The soldiers were deeply affected by this, to the extent that their audible crying could be perceived. However, a pervasive fear of Yazid prevented anyone from mustering the courage to offer water to Ali Asghar (as).

Hazrat Ali Asghar (as) elevated His head and extended His neck in a curved manner. It is beyond the realm of comprehension for any rational individual to fathom the events that transpired thereafter. The emission of the hissing sound ceased, causing Ali Asghar (as) to assume a motionless position within the embrace of his paternal figure.

Imam Hussain (as),  observed the presence of an arrow lodged in Hazrat Ali Asghar’s neck, subsequently witnessing the neck itself, and ultimately perceiving a grin before his visual perception ceased.

The individual ceased their actions and deliberated over the necessity of escorting the infant to their maternal figure. Imam Hussain (as), proceeded to advance by seven paces while uttering the phrase “inna lil-Lahi wa inna ilay-hi raja’uun.

” Once more, his gaze intersected with that of Bibi Rubaab. Once more, the Imam displayed, a lack of fortitude as He retreated, while uttering the phrase “inna lil-Lahi wa inna ilay-hi raja’uun.” Imam Hussain (as), performed this action on seven occasions.
