Karbala's Scholars in the eighth Hijri century… Sayyid Al-Abdali
Sayyid Al-Hussein Al-Abdali (707 A.H. / 1307 A.D.)
He is Sayyid Abu Abdullah Al-Hussein Bin Saad Allah Bin Hamza Bin Saad Allah Bin Abi Al-Saadat Al-Husseini Al-Abdali, a virtuous clerk, auditor, and with many glorified virtues and feats.
Al-Abdali was one of the most prominent figures of the eighth Hijri century, who was nicknamed Izz al-Din Abu Abdullah. Al-Fouti described him by saying: “He is one of the inhabitants of holy shrine of Imam Hussein (A. S), the best of greetings and peace upon him, I saw him in Tabriz in the 707 Hijri year, as he was one of the merchants who visited the Levant."
He once said:
"Aasnaa layali al-Dahr eindi layla lam Ukhli fiha al-Kas min 'iiemal
Farraqt fiha bayn jafani walkura wajamae bayn al-Qart walkhilkhal"
The best nights ever when I have one in which the grail was not empty of work
In it, I separated my eyelids from the Drowsiness and combined the earring and anklet
