As time passed, I began to worry- about what would happen to Imam Ali.. I peeped in the window and saw that Ali (as) had fully covered himself and was asleep-he was not scared at all…

Remember children,- Ali (as) was All alone in a house surrounded by enemies…

I realized at once that Ali(as) – like the Holy Prophet knew that Allah is. Then my heart remembered these words: Allah is my master! He is my Helper
Allah is my Lord! He is my protector!

Suddenly the enemies decided to go inside the house and attack!- as they entered- they reached the bed of the Holy Prophet, and they removed the blanket to strike him, but they were shocked to see that it
was Ali(as) and not the Holy Prophet on the bed.

They tried to force Ali(as) to tell them, where the Prophet was- but Imam Ali did not say a word..
He is so fearless, I thought…

They threatened him- but nothing worked. They decide to hold him hostage- and force him to tell them where the Holy Prophet had gone.

I got worried, what will happen now? What if they kill him? Then I remembered, Allah is….

Allah is my master! He is my Helper
Allah is my Lord! He is my protector!

It was almost morning- so I quickly went to my house, which was inside the tree, to rest. Allah has made us in a way- that we ALL need to sleep. All human beings and animals sleep – but then, would you all agree that…. the sleep of Imam Ali that night on the Holy Prophet’s bed was something very special.

I didn’t even eat any food that night, and I knew I would be so hungry when I woke up– but in my heart, I was happy..so happy…that the Holy Prophet was safe…Imam Ali had saved his life – and I knew, Allah would help me too! Do you know why? He is Ne’mal Moula was neman Naseer

Well, children- when “you” feel sad- why don’t you also say in your heart? Allah is my master! He is my Helper. Allah is my Lord! He is my protector!

Then you will remember how Imam Ali slept on the bed of the Holy Prophet and his sleep was better than 1000 nights of Ibadat!
