Kazmain

 

A masonry structure on the eastern side of 'Qadam Shareef' is the latest addition to the enclosure of Dargah Shah-e-Mardan. It was built by Ghulam Asghar Soomar in 1988 A.D. (1408 A.H.).  It is a small 23' 5" by 11' rectangular room with two domes, and one small minaret. It is built in honor of ‘Kazmain', Shrine situated in Baghdad, Iraq. 'Kazmain' is the resting place of seventh Imam Musa Kazim (as) and the ninth Imam Muhammad Taqi (as). A replica of ‘Kazmain' has been placed inside.

Alams of Hazrat Abbas (as), the son of Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib (as) are adorned on walls. Initially it had two doorways on each corner, but for unknown reasons, those doors were closed permanently by masonry work and a single door is opened in the centre of the structure. The domes were covered with small ceramic tiles and a small minaret is also added later to the structure.

Edward Gibbon on Hazrat Ali

(1737-1794)  Considered the greatest British historian of his time.

 "The zeal and virtue of Ali were never outstripped by any recent proselyte.  He united the qualifications of a poet, a soldier, and a saint; his wisdom still breathes in a collection of moral and religious sayings; and every antagonist, in the combats of the tongue or of the sword, was subdued by his eloquence and valour.  From the first hour of his mission to the last rites of his funeral, the apostle was never forsaken by a generous friend, whom he delighted to name his brother, his vicegerent, and the faithful Aaron of a second Moses."

[The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, London, 1911, volume 5, pp. 381-2]
