Little Cradle of the virtues of Hadrat Ruqayyah
peace be upon her
A sincere scholar Hadrat Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimeen Sayyid Murtada Mujtahidi Sistani who is one of the popular lecturers in Qom theological school transmitted as follows:
Hajj Sadiq Mutaqiyan who is living in the holy city of Mash’ad and one of the service men of the holy shrine of Imam Husain (peace be upon him) in the holy month of Muhram 1418 A.H transmitted to me as follows:
After six years of my daughter’s marriage, she was not bestowed with child. We have visited a lot of doctors and have implemented a lot of doctor’s prescriptions but all in vain, up till the holy month of Safar 1417 A.H. when I intended travelling to Syria. But before my movement her mother has designed a small cradle and said to me: take it along with you to the holy shrine of Hadrat Ruqayyah (peace be upon her) in order to glance at it so that the glance of the great lady shall be the cause of acceptance of our request.
I went along with the little cradle to Sham; there I went to visit Hadrat Ruqayyah, the three years old daughter of Imam Husain (peace be upon him). I entered the courtyard with greatness and sorrow for that Hadrat. The holy shrine of this oppressed lady is being carried by the entire visitors. I took the cradle near the holy shrine with concentration, hope and I touched it with the luminous shrine of the Hadrat.
There is a person who is standing by that observed all my action and said: why do you believe in this act? I said: my belief is with the personality of Hadrat Ruqayyah (peace be upon her) and not the little cradle; and this little cradle is a means of showing my doctrine and belief towards that great lady so that through that I attract her concentration (peace be upon her) towards myself, meanwhile everyone act base on the extent of his science and this is extent of my science towards this great lady. After visiting the other shrines of the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them) in Sham I returned back to Iran. After some period of time the mother said: we should take our daughter for medical checkup so that we became certain whether Hadrat Ruqayyah (peace be upon her) has accepted our request before Almighty Allah or not?
The medical checkup read positive; then it became clear that with a little cradle, hope and belief upon that great lady we are able to attract her mercy and favor and presently my daughter is having a baby in her cradle.
