Salaam Fellow Br/Sr.

Hadrah Shahr-Banu (as)... the first wife of Imam Husayn ibn Ali (as) and the mother of Imam Ali ibn Husayn (as).

Hadrah Shahr-Banu (as) was a Persian Princess who left her wealth and heritage, and came into the blessed, humble and the most fortunate household - the Ahl al-Bayt of Rasuwlallah (pbuh).

She sadly passed away ten days after the birth of her first-born, Imam Ali Zayn al-Aabidin as-Sajaad ibn Husayn (as). Who was then raised by his aunts, the grand Sayidah Zaynab bint Ali (as) and Sayidah Um-Kulthum bint Ali (as).

The epithet of Hadrah Shahr-Banu is Sulaafah and her other given name is Shahzanan. She is also nick-named Shahnaz and Ghazaalah by the Persians.

Pls can someone enlighten as to how she became the wife of Mawla Husayn ibn Ali (as). Jazaakallah.

Wa-Salaam.

The king of Persia had 2 daughters (maybe 3) and he wanted them to marry someone. He brought them to Madina and they could freely chose which person. One of them chose Imam Hassan (as) and the other, Shahr Banu(ph), chose Imam Hussain (as).

(salam)

Whats fake/disputed is the idea that shahr banu rode a horse to tehran and when Imam Hussain was killed on ashura she let out some sort of scream and a mountain crushed her. They have a shrine for her in the outskirts of tehran on top of a small mountain.

I heard in a majalis that after she got married someone asked her she to marry imam hussain in during all tht chaos(when the people were trying to sell her).Shehr banu replied that from the time that she became a muslim she saw a lady in her dreams(Bibi Fatima a.s)and she showed her imam Hussain a.s and told her,that is who she is going to marry.So when she saw Imam Hussain a.s she recognized him.
