SaÊ¿d b. Ê¿Abd AllÄh said:
[Once] Aá¸¥mad b. Isá¸¥Äq and I were sitting in the presence of ImÄm AskarÄ« (pbuh).
I had some questions, [but] the ImÄm stated, âAsk my dear [then he pointed to His Excellency MahdÄ« (mgehr)].
And I asked a few questions. Then I asked, âWhat is the inner meaning of “Kaf. Ha. Ya. ‘Ain. SÄd”1 in QurÊ¾Än
ImÄm ZamÄn (mgehr) stated, ââKafâ refers to KarbalÄ, âHaâ refers to the slaying, “Ya” is YazÄ«d who oppressed ImÄm Huá¹£ayn (pbuh), â ‘Ain” refers to thirst of ImÄm á¸¤usayn (pbuh) and his dear companions, and “SÄd” points to His Majestyâs overcoming the disaster, through patience
