Imam `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.) had wept for years upon his father after the event of Karbala Someone asked to Imām (A.S)“O my master! Your sorrow has not diminished and your lamenting has not ceased?” Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.) Replied:“Woe be to you! Ya'qoob (a.s.) was a Prophet and had twelve sons. One of his sons (Prophet Yusuf) was concealed from his eyes by Allāh, and the hair of his head turned grey due to extreme sorrow, and his back bent due to this anxiety, while the sight of his eyes faded due to excessive weeping, and all this although his son was alive in this world. While I have witnessed my father, brother and eighteen members from among my family fallen upon the ground and martyred, then how could my sorrow diminish and tears cease?”[Reference: Nafasul Mahmum, Section 14, Chapter # 39]
