Back to book

2-101 حدثنا أحمد بن زياد بن جعفر الهمداني رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد، عن يونس بن عبـد الرحمن، عـنابن أسباط، عن علي بن سالم، عن أبيه، عن ثابت بن أبي صفية قال: قال علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام: رحم الله العباس يعني ابن علي فلقد آثروأ بلى وفدى أخاه بنفسه حتى قطعت يداه فأبد له الله بهما جناحين يطير بهما مع الملائكة في الجنة كما جعل لجعفر بن أبي طالب، وإن للعباس عند الله تبارك وتعالى لمنزلة يغبطه بها جميع الشهداء يوم القيامةوالحديث طويل أخذنا منه موضع الحاجة، وقد أخرجته بتمامه مع ما رويته في فضائل العباس بن علي عليهما السلام في كتاب مقتل الحسين بن علي عليهما السلام


2-101 Ahmad ibn Zyad ibn Ja’far al-Hamedany - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashim quoted Muhammad ibn Isaibn Ubayd, on the authority of Yunus ibn Abdul-Rahman, on the authority of Ibn Asbat, on the authority of Ali ibn Salim, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Sabet ibn Abi Sofayeh that Ali ibn al-Hussein as-Sajjad (MGB) said, “May God have Mercy upon Al-Abbas - that is Ibn Ali - who preferred his brother to himself and sacrificed himself for his brother as a result of which both his hands were cut off (by the enemies). God granted him two wings so that he can fly in Paradise along with the angels. God did the same for Ja’far ibn Abi Talib (MGB).Abbas (MGB) has such a high rank near the Blessed the Sublime God which all the martyrs of Karbala envy on the Resurrection Day.”This is a long narration. I have only presented a part of it here as needed. I have presented the complete tradition along with other traditions regarding the nobilities of Ab’bas ibn Ali (MGB) in the book Maqtal Al-Hussein ibn Ali (MGB).
