Atop many traditional Shia displays, you’ll find a decorative ornament shaped like a hand, known as an alam. Each finger represents one of the five figures Shias revere most: Prophet Mohammad; his daughter Fatima; his cousin Ali (also Fatima’s husband); and their two sons, Hasan and Hussein. Shias believe Ali was the rightful successor to the prophet and that only his descendants could assume the caliphate, a belief that would culminate in the Battle of Karbala. (Photo: Mohamed Sabur)

“There is no tragedy like ours at Karbala, albeit the day of Saqifa and how the fire was set at the door of the Commander of the Faithful (AS). And the killing of Mohsin by kicking, is greater and worse because it is the origin of the Day of Torment.”  #ImamJafarSadiq (ع)   Bahjat Qalb al-Mustafa, Vol. 2, p. 532, Nawa’ib al-Duhar p.194. Al-Khasabi, Al-Hidaya al-Kubra, p. 417
