Bibi Umme Laila
Posted 03 January 2010 - 08:50 AM
A few days ago I was watching tv, a majlis in english to be precise. In this Majalis I heared the something on the lines of Hazrat Ali Akbar had connections to both armies (bannu hashmi and bannu maya) in Karbala through Bibi Umme Laila. I think he said it was through her father and also through her uncle. HAzrat ALi akbar had to coose between the the 2 side and (I wasnt suprised to hear) he stuck to the right side, the side of Islam and fiarness. Please can someone help back this theory and tell me wether there is any concrete evidence to this. At first I dismissed such claims when I found them under hateful anti Shia posts on you tube but hearing something on the same lines off one of our own and pretty well clued up preachers really got me thinking.

I thought it was hadhrat abbas that was also related to the bani umayya? I think Shimr (la) was his cousin or something......haven't heard anything about ali akbar ??? Regardless, I don't see what the big deal is. They each chose and fought in the way of truth.

^ Do please if you can. I would be really grateful.
Would you also, by any chance, happen to know if Hani ibn Urwah (a martyr at Karbala) was the paternal uncle of Lady Umm Layla? ... or was this 'Urwah' somebody else....? It would be interesting to know.
