One of the many men who was martyred as he was thirsty on the plains of Karbala, was Ali Akbar (as).
Aba Abdillah (as) heard the tragic news of the dire condition his son was in. He hurried to go to his son but went a direction opposite to where he lay.
His daughter questioned him and he said, “Don’t blame me, for the pain of Ali Akbar (as) has blinded your father.”
He eventually made it to his son where he was breathing his last. He saw his son smile and then quickly get sad. He asked his son why he had the sudden change of emotions.
His son replied, “Oh father, I smile cause I see my grandfather RasulAllah (saww) coming to quench my thirst! But oh father, I get upset because I see my grandmother Fatima Zahra (sa) slapping her cheek for every tear you shed.”
Ya Hussain (as).
Assalamu alayk, Ali Akbar (as) ❤️
