The six month old Ali Asghar
The pierced throat
The empty cradle
In the tears of Zainab

The Ambushed Aun and Mohammad
The grandsons of Jaa'far
The brothers riding through an army
In the tears of Zainab

The pieces of Qasim
The weeping widow of Hassan
The fourteen year old Martyr
In the tears of Zainab

The bleeding Ali Akbar
The Adhaan of Ashura
The weakness of Hussain
In the tears of Zainab

The Jewel of Bani Hashim, Abbas ibn Ali
The flag bearer
The honorable brother
In the tears of Zainab

The apple of the prophet’s eyes
Son of the sole victor of khayber
Son of the lady of Islam
Pride of the poisoned Imaam
Blanketed in arrows
Hussain ibn Ali, in Sujood
In the tears of Zainab

The time in Kufa
The journey to Damascus
The women and children
The chained Ali ibn Hussain
The drums and stones
In the tears of Zainab

The darling of Hussain, Sakina
The orphan
The tortured
The beaten child
The little grave in Damascus
In the tears of Zainab

We find the sacrifice
In the tears of Zainab
