Professor Shahriyārī was never late for class. Neither did he ever leave the class early. He was present for all of the class’s time, 99% of which was spent on the academic subject at hand. One day, which was the anniversary of the martyrdom of Her Eminence Lady Fātemat oz-Zahrā , he brought some books along (some of which were in Arabic, as well as Persian ones), and he talked for about a half hour about Her Eminence Lady Fātema . He then broke out weeping and wailing loudly. It was very unexpected, and everyone was taken by surprise [at their professor’s devotion to Her Eminence ].
