HALF OF MY HEART; The Narratives of Zaynab, Daughter of 'Alî

Gorgias, 2018. First edition. As Abû 'Abd Allâh al-Husayn, son of 'Alî and Fâtima and grandson of Mu?ammad, moved inexorably towards death on the field of Karbalâ', his sister Zaynab was drawn ever closer to the centre of the family of Muhammad, the ‘people of the house’ (ahl al-bayt). There she would remain for a few historic days, challenging the wickedness of the Islamic leadership, defending the actions of her brother, initiating the commemorative rituals, protecting and nurturing the new Imâm, al-Husayn’s son 'Alî b. al-Husayn b. 'Alî b. Abî Tâlib, until he could take his rightful place. This is her story. Hard bound in new condition. Item #22126
