The time Qurʾān commemorates on the martyrs…

Saʿd b. ʿAbd Allāh said:

[Once] Aḥmad b. Isḥāq and I were sitting in the presence of Imām Askarī (pbuh).

I had some questions, [but] the Imām stated, ‘Ask my dear [then he pointed to His Excellency Mahdī (mgehr)].

And I asked a few questions. Then I asked, ‘What is the inner meaning of “Kaf. Ha. Ya. ‘Ain. Sād”1 in Qurʾān

Imām Zamān (mgehr) stated, ‘“Kaf” refers to Karbalā, “Ha” refers to the slaying, “Ya” is Yazīd who oppressed Imām Huṣayn (pbuh), “ ‘Ain” refers to thirst of Imām Ḥusayn (pbuh) and his dear companions, and “Sād” points to His Majesty’s overcoming the disaster, through patience
