Question: In the name of Allah, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intensely Merciful.
May the prayers and peace of Allah be upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis.
May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.
Why is it that when a man tried to lay a hand on the wife of Abraham pbuh, his hand turned into stone, whereas the wives, daughters and children of Muhammad pbuhap were offended, imprisoned and had their veils removed forcefully by the accursed Yazeed?
Zainab pbuh was not an ordinary woman, so how did Yazeed (may Allah curse him) do what he did to her without an obvious divine intervention like what happened with the wife of Abraham pbuh?
In the name of Allah, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intensely Merciful
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds
May the prayers and peace of Allah be upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis
May Allah support you and straighten your footsteps.
Allah swt does not intervene and change natural laws except when necessary and when due to an overwhelming wisdom. Therefore, He can intervene and cause a miracle to protect the honor of His supporters and there is wisdom therein, especially if this intervention results in the guidance of those who request guidance. However, it is not wise for Him to intervene and prevent His enemies from harming and insulting His supporters, and that is because this world is the testing-world, so His supporters are tested by this harm. And they receive the good of the hereafter and the satisfaction of Allah by their patience concerning this harm, insults and denial they endure for the sake of Allah. Moreover, His enemies are tested in this world. The audacity they have to hurt His supporters provides firewood for their hereafter. And they shall find their hereafter ablaze with the firewood they provided.
May Allah support you; the injustice of Fatima pbuh as well as her patience when the people attacked her home and broke her rib was a reason to let the people know the right of the Vicegerent of Allah, Ali bin Abi Talib pbuh. The same goes for the injustice of Zainab pbuh and her patience in enduring the harm, imprisonment and insult. The role of Fatima pbuh in spreading the truthful divine religion is no less than the role of Ali pbuh. The role of Zainab pbuh is also no less than the role of al-Hassan and al-Hussein pbut.
