Back to book

7 - قال: أخبرني أبو حفص عمر بن محمد قال: حدثنا علي بن العباس قال: حدثنا عبد الكريم بن محمد قال: حدثنا سليمان بن مقبل الحارثي قال: حدثني محفوظ بن المنذر قال: حدثني شيخ من بني تميم كان يسكن الرابية قال: سمعت أبي يقول: ما شعرنا بقتل الحسين عليه السلام حتى كان مساء ليلة عاشوراء، فإني [ل] جالس بالرابية ومعي رجل من الحي، فسمعنا هاتفا يقول: والله ما جئتكم حتى بصرت به * بالطف منعفر الخدين منحورا وحوله فتية تدمى نحورهم * مثل المصابيح يعلون الدجى نورا وقد حثثت قلوصي كي أصادفهم * من قبل ما أن يلاقوا الخرد الحورا فعاقني قدر والله بالغه * وكان أمرا قضاه الله مقدورا كان الحسين سراجا يستضاء به * الله يعلم أني لم أقل زورا صلى الإله على جسم تضمنه * قبر الحسين حليف الخير مقبورا مجاورا لرسول الله في غرف * وللوصي وللطيار مسرورا فقلنا له: من أنت يرحمك الله؟ قال: أنا وأبي من جن نصيبين، أردنا مؤازرة الحسين عليه السلام ومؤاساته بأنفسنا، فانصرفنا من الحج فأصبناه قتيلا.


7. He said: Abu Hafs Umar ibn Muhammad reported to me from ‘Ali ibn al-Abbas, who reported from Abdul Karim ibn Muhammad, who reported from Sulaiman ibn Muqbil al-Harith, who reported from Mahfooz ibn al-Munzar, who reported from an elder of Banu Tameem, who lived at al-Rabiya. He said: I heard my father say that they did not know of al-Husayn’s martyrdom till evening of Ashura. He said: I was sitting at al-Rabiya with some people from that district, and we heard a voice saying: "By Allah, I have not come to you till I had seen at Kerbala, the head cut off, with two dusty cheeks! And around him, young men whose throats spurt out blood, and like lamps spreading light in the darkness. I prodded my camel (to run) so that I could meet them before the reticent ones go to meet the Houris. But the destiny prevented me, and Allah would fulfil it, And the command of Allah was a determined fate. Al-Husayn was a lamp from which light was obtained. Allah knows that I have never lied, May Allah bless the body, which has been contained by al-Husayn’s grave, as a good companion. In the neighbourhood of the Prophet in the chambers, and of ‘Ali and al-Tayyar, pleased and satisfied." So we said: "May Allah bless you with mercy, who are you?" He said: "My father and I are Jinn of Nasibayn. We intended to help al-Husayn, peace be upon him, and assist him with our lives. So we proceeded from Haj, but reached him when they had been killed.
