This flower is three days old

My mother would narrate that one day the Imam was strolling in the garden in which there were many flowers. She went up to him and he told her that: “How many days old is this flower?” She answered that she did not know. He stated: “This flower is three days old.” He showed her other flowers and told her on what day each of them had blossomed and how many days old they were. Then he named the flowers after his grandchildren. He pointed to a newly blossomed flower and said: “This is ‘Ali; that one is Hasan and that one over there is Yasir.”

This flower is three days old: Sayyid Hasan Khomeini
