    When Muhammad ibn al-Hanafiyah was imprisoned in ‘Aarim prison, Kuthay’ir said:

     

    "The beauty of the world will not last for the affluent, The harshness of this world is not a fatal blow, For this one and for that one is a period that will finish, And what each has undergone will be the dream of a dreamer. "

     

    Centuries after this occurred do l now reflect over what had happened; and truly, Ibn al-Hanafiyah and the ‘Aarim Prison are both the dreams of a dreamer.

     

    (And how many a generation before them have we destroyed! Can you find a single one of them or hear even a whisper of them?)

    (Quran 19: 98)

     

    In an authentic hadith, the Prophet (bpuh) said:

    "The rights shall be paid back to all (on the Day of Judgment); even the sheep that has no horns will get its retribution from the homed (beast)."
