Sayyidah Zainab (sa) used to hold regular classes in Madina for the women in which she used to impact with her knowledge very concisely a Islamic Law and Tafsir of Qur’an.
In Madina, Her husband (Abdullah ibn Ja’far) asked her to open a school for the daughters of Arabs in the house.
And Sayyidah Zainab (sa) said: “Where will you go if they come in our house?”

And Her Husband replied: “I will go to the farms, when they came!”
Sayyidah Zainab (sa) smile and said:
” But, We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah (swt) will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He (swt) will surely make evident the liars: (Qur’an, 29: 3).

She delivered her classes in an eloquent manner. she became to be known as Faseeha (Skilfully fluent), then she came to kufa when Imam Ali (as) (Her father) moved there, and she was called BALIAH (Intensely eloquent).

One day, Sayyidah Zainab (sa) was discussing the tafsir of Qur’an in kufa when Imam Ali (as) happened to pass by.
He (Imam Ali (as)) asked her; “Are you teaching these women the tafsir of Qur’an..?”

Sayyidah Zainab (sa) said: ” Yes father!  the first verse of surah Mariam (Mary (the mother of Jesus)) which begins with “KAF-HAA-YAA-AYYN-SUAD!!!”

Imam Ali (as) said: ” Let me explain the meaning and described the secrets of the letters that compose this verse, He (Imam Ali (as)) then wept and said:

{ Kaf… stands for karbalaa…

Haa… stands for halakat {martyrdom}…

Yaa… stands for Yazid (la)…

Ayyn… stands for Atash (thirst of Hussain)…

Suad… stands for Sabr {patience of Imam Hussain (as)”…..
