But this was not Umm Salama's only otherworldly encounter and she was not the only one to have al-òHusayn's fate disturb her nights. This is their story"--

"When, on an autumn Medina night in 61/680, the night that saw al-òHusayn killed, Umm Salama was torn from her sleep by an apparition of a long-dead Muòhammad, she slipped effortlessly into a progression of her co-religionists who, irrespective of status, gender or standing with God, were the recipients of dark and arresting visions. At the core of those Delphian dreams, peopled by angels or æginn or esteemed forbears and textured with Iraqi dust and martyrs' blood, was the Karbalåa' event. Her dream would be recounted by an array of Muslim scholars, from al-Tirmiödåi, stellar pupil of al-Buùhåaråi, and Ibn 'Asåakir, untiring chronicler of Syrian history, to bibliophile theologian Ibn òTåa åus and Egyptian polymath al-Suyåuòtåi. But this was not Umm Salama's only otherworldly encounter and she was not the only one to have al-òHusayn's fate disturb her nights. This is their story"--

When, on an autumn Medina night in 61/680, the night that saw al-Ḥusayn killed, Umm Salama was torn from her sleep by an apparition of a long-dead Muḥammad, she slipped effortlessly into a progression of her co-religionists who, irrespective of status, gender or standing with God, were the recipients of dark and arresting visions. At the core of those Delphian dreams, peopled by angels or ğinn or esteemed forbears and textured with Iraqi dust and martyrs' blood, was the Karbalāʾ event. Her dream would be recounted by an array of Muslim scholars, from al-Tirmiḏī, stellar pupil of al-Buḫārī, and Ibn ʿAsākir, untiring chronicler of Syrian history, to bibliophile theologian Ibn Ṭāʾūs and Egyptian polymath al-Suyūṭī. But this was not Umm Salama's only otherworldly encounter and she was not the only one to have al-Ḥusayn's fate disturb her nights. This is their story.
