Dedication

I dedicate this study to Imam al-Husayn, peace be on him. For he is the conscience of the Muslim community and pioneer of its dignity and awareness. He is the father of the free and lord of martyrs. He has occupied a high social position. This study is about his son, Imam Zayn al-‘Abidin, peace be on him, who has filled the world with his virtues, his knowledge, and his piety.
