Sukaina (Arabic: سكينة‎ "Calmness, Peace of Mind"[1]) (née Ruqayyah bint Hussain) (20 Rajab, 56 AH – 5 Rabi' al-thani, 117 AH;[2] 676–736), was the daughter of Husayn ibn ‘Alī and Rubab (the daughter of the chief of the Kinda Imra al-Qays tribe). Husayn was the second grandson of the Prophet of Islam Muhammad and is a revered figure to all the Muslims, who regard him as an Imām.  from Wikipedia Article 


Bibi Sakina was the youngest daughter of Imam Husayn. She was a vivacious child, full of love and happiness. Everyone loved Sakina. She was also a very religious girl. She enjoyed reading the Holy Quraan and never missed her prayers. From the age of two she took great care to make sure that her head and face were properly covered when in public.

 

Sakina was Imam Husayn's most beloved child. Our Imam was often heard to say, “A house without Sakina would not be worth living in!” She always had a sweet and cheerful smile and a very friendly nature. Other children sought her company as much as the grown ups did. She was very generous and always shared whatever she had with others.

 

There was a special bond between Hazrat Abbas and Sakina. He loved her more than he did his own children. If Sakina requested for anything, Abbas would not rest until he satisfied her request. There was nothing that Abbas would not do to make Sakina happy.

 

During the journey from Madina to Mecca and then Mecca to Karbala’, Abbas was often seen riding up to the mehmil in which Sakina sat to make sure that she had everything she wanted. Sakina loved her uncle just as much. While in Madina she would, several times a day, visit the house in which Hazrat Abbas lived with his family and his mother, Ummul Baneen.

 

Like any other four-five year old when Sakina went to bed at night she wanted to spend some time with her father. Imam Husayn would tell her stories of the prophets and of the battles fought by her grand-father Ali. She would rest her head on her father's chest and Husayn would not move from her until she fell asleep. When from the second of Muharram the armies of Yazid began to gather at Karbala’, Husayn said to his sister Zainab, “The time has come for you to get Sakina used to going to sleep without my being there!” Sakina would follow her father at night and Husayn had to gently take her to Zainab or Rubaab.

 

At Karbala’ when from the seventh Muharram water became scarce Sakina shared whatever little water she had with other children. When soon there was no water at all, the thirsty children would look at Sakina hopefully, and because she could not help them she would have tears in her eyes. Sakina's lips were parched with thirst.

 

On the Ashura day, she gave her Mashk to Hazrat Abbas. He went to get water for her. The children gathered round Sakina with their little cups, knowing that as soon as Hazrat Abbas brought any water, Sakina would first make sure that they had some before taking any herself. When Sakina saw Imam Husayn bringing the blood drenched 'alam she knew that her uncle Abbas had been killed. From that day on Sakina never complained of thirst.

 

Then came the time when the earth shook and Sakina became an orphan! But even then she always thought of the others first. She would console her mother on the death of Ali Asghar and when she saw any other lady or child weeping Sakina would put her little arms around her.

 

Yes Sakina never again asked anyone for water. Bibi Zainab would persuade her to take a few sips, but she herself would never ask for water or complain of thirst!!!!

 

From the time when Imam Husayn fell in the battle field, Sakina forgot to smile! Kufa saw her as a sombre little girl lost in thought. Quite often she would sit up at night. When asked if she wanted anything, she would say, “I just heard a baby cry? Is it Asghar? He must be calling out for me!”

Knowing that her weeping upset her mother, Sakina would cry silently and quickly wipe away her tears! In the prison in Shaam she would stare at the flock of birds flying to their nests at sunset and innocently ask Bibi Zainab, “Will Sakina be going home like those birds flying to their homes?”

 

Then one dreadful night Sakina went to bed on the cold floor of the prison. For a long time she stared into the darkness! The time for the morning prayers came. Sakina was still lying with her eyes wide open. Her mother called out: “Wake up, Sakina! Wake up, it is time for prayers, my child!” There was only the painful silence! Our fourth Imam walked up to where Sakina lay. He put his hand on her forehead. It was cold! He put his hand near the mouth and the nose. Sakina had stopped breathing. In between sobs Imam Zain ul 'Abideen said: “inna lil-Lahi wa inna ilay-hi raja’uun.”

 

How was Sakina buried? Zainab held the still child as Imam Zain ul 'Abideen dug a grave in the cell. As the grave was being filled up after the burial the mother let out a scream! How could anyone console Bibi Rubaab? What could they say? They huddled around her, and the prison walls began to shake with the cry: “ya Sakina, ya madhloomah!!” Bibi Rubaab put her cheek on Sakina's grave and cried out: “Speak to me, Sakina! Only a word, my child! Speak to me!!”

Dream of Sayyedah Sakinah, daughter of Imam Husain (a.s)
Extract from The Journey of Tears   by    Bashir Hassanali Rahim

Sayyedah Sakinah (a.s) relates, that on a Thursday I dreamt in Syria, then she relates a lengthy dream and at it's conclusion, she says, that I saw a woman in my dream seated on a Camel-litter with her hand upon her head. I inquired as to who she was and was answered that, "She is Fatemah (a.s), the daughter of Mohammad (s.a.w.s), the daughter of the Messenger of Allah, your grand-mother". I told myself, "By Allah! I should go to her and relate to her all that they have done to us", saying this I ran towards her. I sat in front of her and started weeping, and then I said, "O dear Mother! They withheld our rights. O dear Mother! They scattered our group. O dear Mother! They violated our sanctity. O dear Mother! By Allah! They killed my father Husain (a.s)". She replied, "O dear Sakinah! Remain silent, for it cuts my heart-vein. This is the shirt of your father that I have preserved until I meet Allah alongwith it".

[1] There is no other Deity accept Allah (La Ilaha Illallah). [2] Allah is Great (Allaho Akbar).

Shaikh Ibne Nima relates, that Sayyedah Sakinah (a.s) dreamt in Damascus that five illuminated horses have come forth, and upon each one a honourable personality is seated, while the Angels have surrounded them from all around, a maid of paradise was also alongwith them. Those mounted proceeded further while the maid came towards me and said, "Verily your grandfather has sent salutations to you". I replied, "Salutations upon the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.s)! Who are you?" She replied, "One of the maids of Paradise". I asked, "Who are these people who have arrived here mounted upon the noble horses?" She replied, "They are Adam (a.s), the One Chosen by Allah (Sifwatullah); the second one is Ibraheem (a.s), the friend of Allah (Khaleelullah); the third one is Moosa (a.s), the one who spoke to Allah (Kalimullah); the fourth one is Isa (a.s), the Spirit of Allah". I asked, "Who is he who has held his beard in his hand and is falling & rising?" She replied, "He is your grandfather, the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.s)". I said, "Where are they going?" and she replied, "They are going towards your father Husain (a.s)". I ran towards him to inform him as to how the oppressors have treated us after his death. At that moment five illuminated camel-litters arrived, and on each one a woman was seated. I asked, "Who are these women who have just arrived?" They said, "The first one is Hawwa, the mother of mankind; the second one is Asiyah, the daughter of Mazahim (and wife of Fir'aun); the third one is Mariyam, the daughter of Imran (and mother of Prophet Isa); the fourth one is Khadijah (a.s), the daughter of Khuwaylid; while the fifth one, with her hand upon her head and is falling & rising, is none other than your grand-mother Fatemah (a.s), the daughter of Mohammad (s.a.w.s), your father's mother". I said, "By Allah! I should narrate to her as to how they treated us", saying this I sat facing her and said, "O dear Mother! They withheld our rights. O dear Mother! They scattered our group. O dear Mother! They violated our sanctity. O dear Mother! By Allah! They killed my father Husain (a.s)". She (a.s) replied, "O Sakinah! Remain silent. You have charred my liver and cut off the joint of my heart. This is the shirt of your father Husain (a.s) that I have preserved until I meet Allah alongwith it". Then I awoke from my sleep and wished to conceal it, but then I narrated it to my intimate relatives and it became renowned among men".(NAFASUL MAHMOOM)

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

In the Name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful

 

 

O Allah! Bless Muhammed and the Progeny of Muhammed and hasten their ease.

 

Peace with you, O daughter of the Chosen Prophet,

Peace with you, O daughter of the Pleased wali,

Peace with you, O daughter of the pure Batool, Fatima al-Zahraa,

Peace with you, O daughter of Khadija the Great,

Peace with you, O daughter of the fifth of Ashab al-Kisaa[1],

Peace with you, O portion of the liver of the one who was totally covered with blood,

Peace with you, O child of the one who was unjustly killed in Kerbala,

Peace with you, O pampered one of al-Hussain the Martyr, with him be peace, Allah’s mercy and blessings.

Peace with you, O one brought up in the house of piety,

Peace with you, O one born in the house of self-esteem,

Peace with you, O small one of the Pillar of Guidance,

Peace with you, O martyr of grieving and weeping,

Peace with you, O one who was killed by patience at adversity,

Peace with you, O one who much denounced and pleaded, Allah’s mercy and blessings.

 

Peace with the weeping, complaining, mourning one,

Peace with the wailing captive,

Peace with the one orphaned while still a child,

Peace with the one of the great grief at the loss of one who was affectionate and merciful to her,

Peace with the one of the grief-repressing heart,

Peace with the one of the over-flowing tearful eyes,

With the one having a moaning that tears the hearts apart

Due to the successive of calamities,

Due to what happened to her in the land of afflictions,

The mercy of Allah and His blessings.

 

Peace with the one who was pained and whipped,

Peace with the one who kept bending on bodies which they killed,

Peace with the one whom they prevented from wailing and cries,

Peace with the captive severed from all ties,

Peace with the wronged and afflicted one,

Peace with the one whose condition was denouncing and wailing,

Peace with the one who did not live long after the calamity,

Peace with the one from whom the protector and guardian was absent, the mercy of Allah and His blessings.

 

My salutation goes to the one who was martyred in the supreme catastrophe,

I grieve for the one whose tribulation is a great calamity,

When the dark overwhelmed her, when she was lodged in the House of Ruin in the Sham with her aunt who gathered the orphans around her, when wailers took to silence, when the breaths of grief and wailing calmed down, when they spent the night seeking the morn, so you, O Ruqayya, were frightened in your sleep, and you took to wailing, complaining, mourning your father with the most somber of words. When the sound reached the cursed Yazid, he ordered to bring in the washbowl where the head of the Martyr was placed. He hid his thoughts and what he wanted to do. He started expressing elation at your calamity, showing such a great injustice, with the intention to cut your heart to pieces by doing something from which the stone and the iron crumbles: Grief cast its shadow on the ladies who descended from Hashim on seeing the head of the man of fervor and manliness. You kept looking at the Crown of the dignified `Itra, and the sight shook you, O Ruqayya, as the blood drenched his beard, as his lip was hard pressed with the iron rod, as his cheeks were dried by thirst, as his eyes were affixed on the heavens as he directed this address:

 

“O Lord! I have abandoned all creation when I loved You…, orphaned my children so I may see You; therefore, if You cut me to pieces while loving You…, my heart will never prefer anyone over You.”

 

Peace with the one whose condition cuts the hearts to pieces,

Peace with the one who delivered the amazing speech in defense of the one whose cheeks were ruffled with the dust, your father, the father of Abdullah, al-Hussain, peace with him.

 

It was then that you called out:

“O father! Who drenched the virtuous beard with blood?

“Who severed the holy neck?

“Who made me an orphan though I am still a child?”

 

To you, O Ruqayya, I express my puzzlement:

How can I describe your whimper?

So peace with the one who fell on the head of her father anxiously,

Peace with the one whose feverish head was hugged,

Peace with the one whose condition spoke for her,

Peace with your ascending soul after you fell on the sacred head,

Peace with your withering senses due to incessant walking,

Peace with the soul that bade farewell to the sighing senses,

Peace with the body the fractured soul of which departed,

Peace with the one who caused women to weep

On account of the horrific site of what they saw,

On account of what happened to her and the woe,

When her father’s head was brought to her…

 

Imam Zainul-`Abidin peace with him said,

“Lift her, for her soul has departed from this life…”

 

So they lifted you, and you were dead…

 

Peace with the one who intensified the calamity of Ahl al-Bayt.

Peace with you, one with the self-esteemed soul,

Peace with you, O captive descendant of al-Hussain,

Peace with you, O daughter of the Muhammedi celestial lights,

Peace with you, O branch of the Alawi Fatimi Tree,

O little one of al-Hussain, O Ruqayya,

The mercy of Allah and His blessings.

 

Our calamities have been aggravated because of you,

O daughter of al-Hussain,

Our eyes are affixed on you with warm tears,

Colors of our faces have been robbed by wailing,

Our hearts have suffered due to the darts

Of the hidden animosity of the oppressive Banu Umayyah,

Our souls have gathered here in your presence

With anxiety, affection, sighs and moaning,

The Purified Ahl al-Bayt are they mourning,

Complaining about the anguish, the severity of grief, the hardship of the pain,

The strangulation of the separation,

The warmth of the affection…

 

We plead to Allah to compensate us for having lost you with abundance of rewards, with the goodly Return to Him.

 

We plead to Allah through the status which you enjoy with Him, O Sakina, through the honor which is before you, through the place from which your lights shine, that you will intercede on behalf of the lowly sinner, the fugitive seeker of a safe haven, the heart-broken helpless supporter of yourselves, the repentant lover of Ahl al-Bayt, who repents to Allah, the all-Knowing, the all-Seeing, so he may attain, through you, O Ahl al-Bayt, the perfect rewards of Ziyaras, so he may achieve success in his Hereafter when his rewards are doubled and sins forgiven, surely my Lord is most Gracious; surely He answers the pleas, expresses affection, Merciful to you, O Ahl al-Bayt, and Kind.

 

Peace with you, masters, the mercy of Allah and His blessings.

 

I testify that you tolerated whatever afflicted you, that you are alive according to the text of the Book (Qur’an), where the One Who is swift in reckoning says, “And do not reckon those who are killed in the way of Allah as dead. Nay! They are living with their Lord, receiving their sustenance.”

 

O Allah! Bless Muhammed and the Progeny of Muhammed!

 

Lord! I plead to You through the medium of the great calamity and the momentous affliction, to what went on in Kerbala, to bless Muhammed and the Progeny of Muhammed, and to spare us the ills of everything that is evil, to overlook our own injustices, to strengthen us so we may resist the committing of what You abhor!

 

Lord! We direct ourselves to You through the medium of the shock that killed Ruqayya, the orphan, through the medium of the momentous calamity, through the medium of the severe affliction, through the suffering of the glorified `Itra, through the medium of Sakina’s pure soul, persevering senses and generous tears, through her status with which pleases You…, to fulfill our needs and those of believing men and women, Allahomma Aameen.

 وَ بِالْمَقَامِ الَّذِي تشرق مِنْهُ انوارك

 انَّ تَكُونِي شَفِيعَةُ لِلْمُذْنِبِ الْحَقِيرُ

 وَ اللَّائِذُ الْمُسْتَجِيرِ

 وَ الْمُضْطَرُّ الْكِسِيرُ

 التَّائِبِينَ الَىَّ الْعَلِيمُ الْبَصِيرُ . . .

بِأَن يَنَال بِكُمْ تَمَامَ ثَوَابِ الزِّيَارَاتِ

 وَ يُفْلِحُ بِآخِرَتِهِ بمضاعفة الْمَثُوبَاتِ

 وَ غُفْرَانِ الْخَطِيئَاتِ

 إِنَّ رَبِّي بِما يشااء لَطِيف

 وَ هُوَ بِكُمْ مُجِيبُ عطوف

 وَ هُوَ لَكُمْ رَحِيمُ رؤوف

 

 وَ السَّلَامُ عَليْكُمْ سَادَتِي وَ رَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَ بَرَكِاتُهُ

 

اشْهَدْ أَنَّكُمْ تَحَمَّلْتُمُ الْمُصَاب

 وَ أَنَّكُمْ أَحْيَاءُ بِنَصِّ الْكِتَاب

 حَيْثُ قَالَ سَرِيعُ الْحِساب:

 

)وَ لا تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْواتاً بَلْ أَحْياءُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ(

 

أَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

 

أَللّٰهُمَّ أَنِّي أَسْأَلُكِ بِالْمُصِيبَةِ الْعُظْمَى

 وَ بالنازلة الْكُبْرَى

 وَ بِمَا جَرَى فِي كِرْبَلَاءَ

 انَّ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

 وَ انَّ تَقِيَنَا شَرِّ الاسواء

 وَ تَهُبُّ لَنَا الظلامات

 وَ تُقَوِّينَا عَلَى مُجَاهَدَةَ الْمُنْكِرَاتِ

 

أَللّٰهُمَّ أَنَا نَتَوَجَّهُ اليك بصرعة رُقَيَّةَ الْيَتِيمَةُ

 وَ بهاتيك الفاجعة الْعَظِيمَةِ

 وَ بِتِلْكِ الْمُصِيبَةِ الشَّدِيدَةَ

 وَ مَا نَزَلَ بالعِترة المجيدة

 وَ بِجَاهِ رَوْحَهَا الطَّاهِرَةِ

 وَ جَوَارِحِهَا الصابرة

 وَ أدمُعِها السخيَّة

 وَ بِمَا هِيَ عِنْدَكِ مَرْضِيَّةً

انَّ تَقْضِي حاجاتنا وَ حَاجَاتِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ
