Question:1- I am unable to recite Dua e abo Hamza Thumali in one go, can I recite it in breaks? For example I divide the dua in parts and recite parts of it each night.

2. Definitely, as it’s important you understand what you’re reciting
Question:During my second trip to Lebanon to visit the shrine of Syeda Khawla bint Imam Hussain ع I was also blessed to visit another nearby shrine of another daughter of Imam Hussain ع. I was told this was the shrine of Syeda Safiya bint Imam Hussain however there was no one that spoke English who could give any information about this daughter. Recently I have been told that her name was Fatima Wusta and that she is mentioned in many narrations about Ashura and the events after however I have not been able to find anything in Fatima Wusta (except another member of Ahlulbayt buried in Iran) or Syeda Safiya.
Do you have any information on the personality buried within this shrine? What was her real name and what is written of her in narrations?
If you could provide any information that you know in brief or direct me towards a source in English then I would be very grateful.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: I have not come across this. It is fairly known that Imam did not have a daughter by name of Saffiya. It is perhaps a great descendent of Imam who had a father by name of Hussain and people mistook it

Question:There are enemies of Islam who also bring these hadiths Imam Muhammad Baqir said fasting in ashura eliminates the sin of an entire year (tahdihib al ahkam graded sahih by al khoei)
