O my chief and master, ‘Which is that calamity for which you weep blood instead of tears?

Marhoom Haaj Shaikh Akbar Ali Nihaavandi has mentioned in his invaluable book that the revered Shaikh Haaj Mulla Sultan Ali Rozakhwan Tabrizi (who was among the worshipers and penitents) narrates his dream that he was in the presence of Hazrat Baqiyatullah (a.t.f.s.) and said “O my chief and master, you have recited in Ziyarat-e-Naahiyah – I cry for you day and night and weep blood instead of tearsis it right?”

Imam (a.t.f.s.) said: Yes, it is correct. I inquired ‘Which is that calamity for which you weep blood instead of tears? Is it for Ali Akbar (a.s.)?’ He replied: “If Ali Akbar (a.s.) was alive even he would cry blood over this calamity”. I asked ‘Is it for Abbas (a.s.)?’ He (a.t.f.s.) answered: “Had Abbas (a.s.) been there even he would weep blood over this calamity”. I said ‘certainly it would be the calamity of the Chief of Martyrs (a.s.)’ He (a.t.f.s.) reacted “Had the Chief of Martyrs (a.s.) been alive even he would cry blood over this calamity”. I probed ‘Then which is that calamity?’ He (a.t.f.s.) responded “It is the calamity of Janabe Zainab (s.a.) being enslaved upon which tears of blood will always be shed.”
