Ahlul Sunnat And Lady Shaharbano

Ahlul Sunnat say that Shaharbano was brought to Medina as a prisoner, which did not have religious sanction according to Shia faith; so how can her relationship with Husayn (a.s.) be justified and how can her giving birth to Imam Zainul Aabideen (a.s.) be legitimized? The writer has already proved in detail these things in the foregone pages. Here it suffices to say that according to a traditional report of Biharul Anwar1 the proper marriage (Nikah) of Imam Husayn (a.s.) was performed with Shaharbano and she was not dealt with like other women prisoners of war. The reason for this was only so because she had come as prisoner of war conducted by the Caliphs and these wars were themselves not legitimate.
