Tags: Excellence of Imam Husain (a.s.)
The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) informed, ‘O Ubay! I swear by Him who rightfully appointed me as the Prophet that Husain b. Ali is greater in the heavens than he is on earth. The following is written on about him on the right side of the Throne of the Honourable God – He (Husain b. Ali) is the Lantern of Guidance and the Ship of Salvation. He is the divine leader of steadfastness, honour, pride, (source of) knowledge and treasures. And the Honourable God has placed a pure, blessed and pious sperm in his loin.
