Wahab Nasrani and his wife Hania, this family came to Karbala as part of the caravan of Imam Hussein (pbuh).On the day of Ashura, Wahab Nasrani went to the field, and fought heroically. In this intense battle, Wahb’s hands were cut off and he was captured by Yazid’s army.
Yazid army separated Wahb’s head from his body and sent it to his mother to sadden his heart. But Wahb’s mother took her young son’s head and kissed it and said:
“Praise and thanks to God who made me proud in front of Hussein (pbuh) with your martyrdom” Then she took the head and said:” We do not take back what we have given to God, and threw her son’s head to the enemy.
” Then she went to her tent and took the pillar of the tent and attacked Yazid’s army and killed two of them.
Imam Hussein (pbuh) told Wahab’s mother to come back and said that it is not obligatory (wajib) for women to do jihad, and that you will be glad to accompany your child as the companion of the Prophet (pbuh) and you will both be in Heaven.
Wahb’s wife brought herself to him, and she was screaming on the enemy, the brutal armies of Yazid came to her and martyred her alongside his husband’s body. Wahb’s wife was the first woman to be martyred during the Karbala incident.
