Reciter: Tejani Brothers

Zainab stands there and looks on at Hussain

Upon arrows, Hussain lays there
He cries and says turn your face away
You won’t be able to bear my pain
12 strikes to the neck of Hussain
As his soul departs he looks up and says
Oh Allah I gave you everything that I have
If I had to, I’d do it again

Hussain looks into his killer’s eyes
As he sits on his chest with a blunted knife
He takes the knife to the throat of Hussain
He hacks away at his neck again and again
He pulls Hussain by his bloodied beard
With the blood of Hussain his face is smeared
He laughs and says that your end is near
But Hussain says I have never feared
12 strikes to the neck of Hussain
As his soul departs he looks up and says
Oh Allah I gave you everything that I have
If I had to, I’d do it again

The blazing sun, three days of thirst
Not a drop of water for any of us
I saw my six-month old in such distress
Drifting in and out of consciousness
In the grief of my son I lost my sight
I crawled on the sands to be by his side
I will never forget his final cries
As I pulled that spear from his insides
12 strikes to the neck of Hussain
As his soul departs he looks up and says
Oh Allah I gave you everything that I have
If I had to, I’d do it again

A voice is heard around these plains
As a lady embraces the head of Hussain
She cries aloud, puts her neck on his head
I’m his mother cut my neck instead
It’s the final strike and Hussain’s last breath
He thanks Allah as he meets his death
Lady Zahra cries with a broken heart
As the head and the body come apart
