Head of Imam Hussain A.S.
One of the miracles that Allah Almighty gave to Imam Hussain alayhis-salam
was that his sacred head spoke as it was being carried from Karbala – in
Iraq – to Shaam – modern Syria – and back to Karbala where it was buried in the grave where his sacred body had been buried. In the course of the
entire passage of the women and children captives, with which the heads of
the martyrs of Karbala were also carried from Karbala to Shaam and back, the sacred head of Imam Hussain alayhis-salam used to recite the holy Qur'an, and this phenomenon proved instrumental in guiding the people to Truth.

The sacred head of Imam Hussain alayhis-salam also spoke in the court of the evil Yazid. When the sacred head of Imam Hussain alayhis-salam arrived at the court of Yazid, amongst others, the Roman envoy of the emperor of Rome was also present. After realising that the captives were the women and children of the household of the Prophet of Islam, and the head of the grandson of the Prophet was amongst them, the Roman envoy protested to and rebuked Yazid, and said,

"had we had a descendent of Jesus amongst us, we would have honoured him and glorified him".

In response to this protest Yazid ordered the Roman envoy to be evicted immediately. The sacred head of Imam Hussain alayhis-salam said in a loud voice, "there is no power but that of Allah". At that occasion and at every other occasion throughout the journey from Karbala to Shaam and back, people were astonished to see and hear the sacred head of Imam Hussain speaking, and they realised that this was no ordinary event but a divine miracle, and Allah Almighty is showing them the realty of Imam Hussain alayhis-salam. Such events revealed to the people the reality and the significance of the hadith stated by Rasulollah salla-llahu-alayhi-wa-aalih wasallam - Hadith-e-Thaqala
