Just before Imam Hussain(a.s) left Madina, Ummul Baneen(Mother of sons); the mother of Abbas(a.s) summoned all her four sons (Abbas, Abdullah, Ja’far and Uthman) and said to them,
“My sons you must remember that, Imam Hussain(a.s) is your Master. If Imam(a.s) or his sisters or his children get injured or hurt while you are still alive, I will never forgive you.”
All four sons of Lady Ummul Baneen stood bravely alongside Imam Hussain(a.s) on the day of Ashura. She instilled in her sons a love and loyalty for the Prophet(s.a.w) and his Household that allowed them to stand with firm faith despite knowing that they would be killed by the overwhelming army of falsehood that stood before them. Such men of honor and valor cannot be trained and brought up to be like so, unless their mother is a woman of faith and courage herself.
