#ImamHussain (as) says the following just moments before his Martyrdom:
شيعتي شيعتي ما ان شربتم عذب ماء فاذكروني
Imam Hussain said : "My Shia's whenever you drink sweet water, remember Me".
[Source:Misbah Al-Kafami, Pg.741]
Anther similar narration from ImamSadiq :
قال الصادق (ع) " اني ما شربت ماء باردا الا وذكرت الحسين
#ImamSadiq (as) said, "Verily, I didn’t drink cold water, but that I remembered Husain (as)."
Even with such narrations which talk about presence of #water in #Karbala untill the night of #Ashura , one cannot deny the fact that #ImamHussain (as) was martyred thirsty.
We also have the following narration which indicates that water was not available for 3 days:
أبو مخنف: روى بعد ذكر شهادة علي الأكبر:
ثم أقبل #الامام_الحسين (عليه السلام) إلى أم كلثوم، وقال لها: يا أختاه! أوصيك بولدي الصغير خيرا، فإنه طفل صغير، وله من العمر ستة أشهر. فقالت له: يا أخي! إن هذا الطفل له ثلاثة أيام ما شرب الماء، فاطلب له شربة من الماء. فأخذ الطفل وتوجه نحو القوم وقال: يا قوم! قد قتلتم أخي وأولادي وأنصاري، وما بقي غير هذا الطفل، وهو يتلظى عطشا، فاسقوه شربة من الماء.فبينما هو يخاطبهم إذ أتاه سهم مشوم من ظالم غشوم، وهو حرملة بن كاهل الأسدي، فذبح الطفل من الوريد إلى الوريد، أو من الأذن إلى الأذن، فجعل الحسين (عليه السلام) يتلقى الدم حتى امتلأت كفه ورمى به إلى السماء
Abu Makhnaf narrates after the Martyrdom of Ali alAkbar (as). Then Imam Husain (as) came to Um kalthom and said to her, "O Sister, I recommend you (as a will/Wasiyah) to do good regarding My small Son because He is a very small child and He is only 6 months old." Then Um Kalthom said to Husain (as), "O Brother, verily for 3 days this small child has not drank water, so ask for water for him.
So Imam Hussain took the child and faced the enemies and said, "O People, you killed My Brother, My Children and My helpers and none remains except this child and He is burning due to thirst, give Him a drink of water. And while the Imam was addressing them,He was shot by an horrible arrow from the ignorant tyrant Harmalah bin Kahil alAsadi (curses be upon him),which slaughtered the child from vein to vein or from ear to ear.Then Husain (as) collected his blood and filled it in his hands a
Salam Aulakum my brothers and sisters, as many of you may know I have autism, and seeing as many of you do not know much about autism I thought I’d share my own experience being autistic.
Now before anything I’d like to be clear that I am not an expert nor am I claiming anything, autism comes in a wide spectrum from affecting communication with people to having the mental age of a toddler.
Now. Autism to me is something that affects my social interactions because I have a spurges syndrome and that affects that part in my brain, Alhamdulilah it’s a lot better now than it was a few years ago but it is still noticeable, especially when I’m talking to someone and I have to do not show much emotion in my voice which which some people take as me not caring even though I do care its just I don’t appear to, and this dose affect me more online than it does in the real world as I’m highly aware of this and tend to be more animated in my actions when I speak, another thing this affects is how people treat me, because if you met me in the real world I’d come across as normal but a little shy, but once people find out they treat me like a child... which btw we autistic people absolutely hate this and it doesn’t help us in any way!
But possibly the biggest one was my social isolation, because when I was growing up in the 2000s it was hard to be safe, and hell I couldn’t speak until I was 4 so I had to stay inside all day, but that did affect me a lot.
Hope this mess of a post was good for someone
