A poet has nicely paid tribute to Imam (a.s.) in the following words.
It is full of sorrow, full of rue.
You: the Best of the Worshippers,
You: The Lord of the Worshippers.
One died, one took birth
Stars of your prostrations on the earth.
Under your feet is MARWA;
Wherever you pace there is KA’BA,
You are a necklace if faith were a bride
Over heavens you are our planet’s pride.
Incident of Imam Zainul Abideen's (as) Worship (Ibadah)
Taawus-e-Yemeni once entered Hijr-e-Ismail after midnight and saw Imam Zainul Abideen (as) in prostration (Sajdah). He felt as though Imam Zainul Abideen (as) was repeating something. As he came closer, Taawus heard the Imam Zainul Abideen (as) saying:
ILAAHI UBAYDUKA BI-FINAA-IK, MISKEENUKA BI-FINAA-IK, FAQEERUKA BI-FINAA-IK
"O my Lord! Your most humble servant is at Your doorstep. A beggar is at Your doorstep. A needy is at Your doorstep."
Taawus says that after this incident, whenever I encountered any hardships and sicknesses, I would go into Sajdah and recite these words of Imam Zainul Abideen (as) and I would experience relief. (Ahsan al-Muqaal)________________________________________
