Words which may have been said to the Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasalam By Hazrat Ali Radhiallahu anho on the death of Hazrat Khadijah Radhiallahu Anha and Abu Talib.
Both my eyes weep, weep for that chief of the Bateha valley whose name was Abu Talib; and weep for that flower of womanhood whose name was Khadija. The woman first to accept Islam and first to pray. Both Abu Talib and Khadija were pure souls. Their passing away has created a great void. At the pain of their separation I spend the whole night in weeping. They helped the Holy Prophet. They were a source of strength to Islam. After them the world has been plunged into darkness. From God they came and to God they have returned; may their souls rest in peace.
