Al Baqir, the Revealer

Someone asked Imam Muhammad Baqir, "Sire! Why do you weep and cry like this?" His reply was, "Prophet Yaqub lost just one son and wept till he went blind. How can I help weeping when I have lost eighteen members of my family, including my grandfather Hussain at Karbala. Have I suffered any way less than Prophet Yaqub which caused his blindness?"

- Syed Ali Hujweri, Kashful Mahjub
