While translating the sermon of Imam Zainul Abidin at Yazid’s Palace, Sayyid Zakzaky explained the various qualities and noble status of the Ahlul Bayt(AS) as contained in the Sermon. The Sermon mentioned thirteen (13) undisputed qualities of Ahul Bayt(AS) which are not given to any except them. Sayyid Zakzaky mentioned that love of Ahlul Bayt is sign of Iman (faith).

 Imam said in the sermon “ Allah has given us (Ahul Bayt) six things which no one else has. He has given us special Wisdom, Patience, Dignity, Power of speech, Courage and Respect. He gave us special benefit of belonging to the family of His Prophet. To us belong Hamza and Jafar. To us belong Asadullah (The lion of Allah, Imam Ali(a.s.)). To us belong the leader of the youths of paradise (Imam Hasan(a.s.) and Imam Husain(a.s.))

"Those who know me, know me. Those who do not, then know that I am the son of Mecca and Mina. I am the son of Zamzam and Safa. I am the son of he who gave Zakat to the poor. I am the son of the best of those who have ever put on Ihram and performed ceremonies of Hajj. I am the son of he who was taken on the night journey from house of Allah to the Mosque of Aqsa and then to Miraj. I am the son of he who was taken by Gibrael to the Lote-tree of the boundary (Sidratul Muntaha).

"I am the son of Muhammad Mustafa(SAWA). I am the son of Ali Al-Murtaza(a.s.) who fought the polytheists in the battle till they submitted to Islam and fought in the presence of the Prophet until his sword was broken and to whom Zulfikar was given. I am the son of he who had the honour to migrate twice in Islam. I am the son of Fatima the best women of the world..

Sayyid Zakzaky mentioned that the effect of the speech was so powerful that everybody around began to weep and to blame Yazid. Yazid was afraid that if the Imam continued his speech, there would be  problem that could lead to a revolution and revolt. So, he ask muadhim to call to prayer just to interrupt Imam’s sermon.
