حدثنا محمد بن ابراهيم بن اسحاق رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد العزيز ابن يحيى الجلودي قال: حدثنا محمد بن زكريا الجوهري قال حدثنا جعفر بن محمد ابن عمارة عن أبيه عن ابى عبد الله " ع " قال: قلت له اخبرني عن أصحاب الحسين " ع " واقدامهم على الموت فقال انهم كشف لهم الغطاء حتى رأوا منازلهم من الجنة فكان الرجل منهم يقدم على القتل ليبادر إلى حوراء يعانقها والى مكانه من الجنة.


1. Muhammad Bin Ibrahim Bin Is’haq narrated to us, from Abdul Aziz Ibn Yahya Al Jaloudy, from Muhammad Bin Zakariyya Al Jowhry, from Ja’far Bin Muhammad Ibn Amara, from his father, (The narrator says) ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘Inform me about the companions of Al-Husayn (asws), and their proceeding to the death’. So he (asws) said: ‘The covering was removed from them to the extent that they saw their houses in the Paradise. So the man from among them used to proceed towards the killing to hasten to the Houries and embracing them, and to his place in the Paradise’.
