"13th Jimad Us-Saani-Death of Lady Ummul Baneen"
Lady Ummul Baneen(mother of sons)-wife of Imam Ali(as) and mother of Hazrat Abbas(as).
Fatima bint Hizam,commonly known as Ummul Baneen,married Imam Ali(as) after the death of his wife Fatimah bint Muhammad(PBUH).
Ummul Baneen and Ali(as) had four children,of which the eldest was Al-Abbas ibn Ali(commander of Husayn ibn Ali's forces at the battle of Karbala).
On the sorrowful and painful occasion of her death anniversary,we extend condolences to Prophet Muhammad(PBUH), Imam Ali(as), Imam Zamana(af) and the Ahl-e-Bait(as).
Hazrat Ummul Baneen came to the house of Imam Ali(as) knowing very well that before her the chief of the women of Paradise, Hazrat Fatima Zahra(sa) was living in that house. So She served Imam Ali(as) well. She vowed herself to act as a slave of the children of Hazrat Fatimah(sa).
She was the first one to hold a congregation (Majlis) for Imam Husayn ibn Ali(as) right after his martyrdom.
We pray for the reappearance of the Awaited Savior and Restoration of the Grave into a masoluem.
