Question 25: What is the meaning of the narration from the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and from the Imams pbut, “This world is a prison for the believer” ?
Answer: It has also been narrated from them pbut, “Prayer is an ascension for the believer.” [Kanz al-‘Ummal, vol. 7, p. 279.] So this believer is the same as that believer [from the above narration], and the believer here is not one who just believes in Islam and the allegiance (Wilaya).
In memory of Zainab, daughter of Fatima daughter of Muhammad pbuhap entering Syria as a prisoner, we remember that Yazid bin Muawiya Ibn Abu Sufyan, may God curse them all, slayed al-Hussain and imprisoned the daughters of Muhammad (pbuhap) in the name of Islam and in the name of Muhammad. And Satan’s purpose for this is to bring back the worship of Hubal that Muawiya and Abu Sufyan, may God curse them, fought for before, but to bring it back in another form.
