Bibi Zainab's Veil

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

(bismillah)

(salam)

I've heard some people saying that Bibi Zainab's Hijab wasn't actually snatched from her, it was just her face veil. But before that, I'd always heard in Majaalis that she walked bare headed in the Bazaar of Shaam and Yazid's darbaar.

So which one is true? And does anyone have any narrations to prove it?

As for why you were told the heascarf was torn, I think that claim does exist in some reports (for example in Tabari I think), but not in the most authentic ones. It is obvious however that you are more likely to hear it in majlis, because speakers will often use any narration they can to get the emotions going. People who mostly do not veil their faces (or who's female relatives do not veil their facces) are obviously doing to be able to relate a lot better to stories of headscarf being torn off than a face veil.

How is there supposed to be a Saheeh narration out of Karbala if none of the Ahlul Bayt narrate anything from it??? We're forced to rely on the other people that were there, making it "weak" by rijaali standards because there's no records on those people.

Let's just say there's a difference of opinion before this starts getting heated and people start accusing each other of being too emotional and bashing Shia speakers who narrate the events of Karbala for lying.

In the end, it does not really matter. They were held captive and their modesty was taken from them (whether it's their veil or headscarf or both). That is enough of an atrocity for us to mourn over.

So? We are dealing with history here, not fiqh.

The event of Ashura isn't just 'history', it is an integral part of this religion and a great amount of emphasis is based upon this 'history'. We should understand it properly, even its intricate details. Because of this, having conflicting stories is rather problematic and it really should come from a pure source. Didn't Sayeda Zainab (a) inform people about the tragedies that befell? Why don't we have any of speeches in this regard?

Yeah I agree that either way, it's enough of an atrocity. I just wanted to know out of curiosity.

whatever happened to the women of the family of the prophet of god is not correct

they were made to walk all the way from kerbala iraq to sham syria in the hot desert on foot with chains

and bibi zainab was forced out of medina later

what is this ?

the grand daughter of the prophet ; daughter of ameer ul moomenen and fatima zahra being treated like this

i think it is a shame on those people who done like this
