أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِیلَ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَهَ عَنْ أَبِی هَارُونَ الْمَکْفُوفِ قَالَ: قَالَ لِی أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع یَا أَبَا هَارُونَ أَنْشِدْنِی فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع فَأَنْشَدْتُهُ قَالَ فَقَالَ لِی أَنْشِدْنِی کَمَا یُنْشِدُونَ یَعْنِی بِالرِّقَّهِ قَالَ فَأَنْشَدْتُهُ هَذَا الشَّعْرَ- امْرُرْ عَلَی جَدَثِ الْحُسَیْنِ فَقُلْ لِأَعْظُمِهِ الزَّکِیَّهِ قَالَ فَبَکَی ثُمَّ قَالَ زِدْنِی فَأَنْشَدْتُهُ الْقَصِیدَهَ الْأُخْرَی قَالَ فَبَکَی وَ سَمِعْتُ الْبُکَاءَ مِنْ خَلْفِ السِّتْرِ قَالَ فَلَمَّا فَرَغْتُ قَالَ یَا أَبَا هَارُونَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع شِعْراً فَبَکَی وَ أَبْکَی عَشَرَهً کُتِبَ لَهُمُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع شِعْراً فَبَکَی وَ أَبْکَی خَمْسَهً کُتِبَ لَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع شِعْراً فَبَکَی وَ أَبْکَی وَاحِداً کُتِبَ لَهُمُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ ذُکِرَ الْحُسَیْنُ ع عِنْدَهُ فَخَرَجَ مِنْ عَیْنَیْهِ مِقْدَارُ جَنَاحِ ذُبَابَهٍ کَانَ ثَوَابُهُ عَلَی اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ لَمْ یَرْضَ لَهُ بِدُونِ الْجَنَّهِ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to us by Sa’d b. Abdillah from Muhammad b. al-Hussain b. al-Khattab from Muhammad b. Ismail from Salih b. ’Uqba from Abi Harun al-Makfoof who said: “O Abu Haroon! One who cries after reciting the poems of Imam Husain (a.s.) and makes ten people cry Allah would make everyone enter Paradise. One who cries after reciting the poem of Imam Husain (a.s.) and makes five people cry everyone would get Paradise. One who recites the poem of Imam Husain (a.s.) and makes a person cry Paradise would be made obligatory for both of them. If a discussion of Husain (a.s.) is held in front of a person and a tear equal to the wing of a fly comes out of his eyes his reward is with the Almighty Allah and Allah won’t be satisfied without giving him Paradise.”




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ مَاجِیلَوَیْهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ یَحْیَی الْعَطَّارِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ عَلِیِّ بْنِ أَبِی عُثْمَانَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیِّ بْنِ أَبِی الْمُغِیرَهِ عَنْ أَبِی عُمَارَهَ الْمُنْشِدِ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: قَالَ لِی یَا أَبَا عُمَارَهَ أَنْشِدْنِی لِلْعَبْدِیِّ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع قَالَ فَأَنْشَدْتُهُ فَبَکَی قَالَ ثُمَّ أَنْشَدْتُهُ فَبَکَی قَالَ فَوَ اللَّهِ مَا زِلْتُ أُنْشِدُهُ وَ یَبْکِی حَتَّی سَمِعْتُ الْبُکَاءَ مِنَ الدَّارِ فَقَالَ لِی یَا أَبَا عُمَارَهَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ ع فَأَبْکَی خَمْسِینَ فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع فَأَبْکَی أَرْبَعِینَ فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع فَأَبْکَی ثَلَاثِینَ فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع فَأَبْکَی عِشْرِینَ فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع فَأَبْکَی عَشَرَهً فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ شِعْراً وَاحِداً فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع شِعْراً فَبَکَی فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع شِعْراً فَتَبَاکَی فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ.


2. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) told Abu Umara, “Recite a poem regarding Imam Husain (a.s.).” He recited the poem and Imam (a.s.) cried. He went on reciting and Imam (a.s.) cried continuously till the wails started coming out of his house. Then Imam (a.s.) said, “O Abu Umara! One who recites a poem regarding Imam Husain (a.s.) and makes fifty persons cry Paradise belongs to him. One who recites a poem and forty persons cry Paradise is for them. If thirty persons cry Paradise is for them also. One who recites a poem and twenty persons cry they too will get Paradise. One who makes ten people cry after reciting a poem of Imam Husain (a.s.) they too will get Paradise. One who makes a person cry after reciting a poem of Imam Husain (a.s.) they too will get Paradise. One who recites the poem of Imam Husain (a.s.) and cries alone he too will get Paradise. One who makes just a crying face after reciting the poem regarding Imam Husain (a.s.) he too will get Paradise.”




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ یَحْیَی عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَیْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِیلَ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ عُقْبَهَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع بَیْتاً مِنْ شِعرٍ فَبَکَی وَ أَبْکَی عَشَرَهً فَلَهُ وَ لَهُمُ الْجَنَّهُ فَلَمْ یَزَلْ حَتَّی قَالَ وَ مَنْ أَنْشَدَ فِی الْحُسَیْنِ ع شِعْراً فَبَکَی وَ أَظُنُّهُ قَالَ أَوْ تَبَاکَی فَلَهُ الْجَنَّهُ.
