1 حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ الرَّزَّازُ الْكُوفِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنِ الْخَشَّابِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَسَّانَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ كَثِيرٍ عَنْ دَاوُدَ الرَّقِّيِّ قَالَ كُنْتُ عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (ع) إِذَا اسْتَسْقَى الْمَاءَ فَلَمَّا شَرِبَهُ رَأَيْتُهُ قَدِ اسْتَعْبَرَ وَ اغْرَوْرَقَتْ عَيْنَاهُ بِدُمُوعِهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ لِي يَا دَاوُدُ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ قَاتِلَ الْحُسَيْنِ (ع) فَمَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ شَرِبَ الْمَاءَ فَذَكَرَ الْحُسَيْنَ (ع) وَ لَعَنَ قَاتِلَهُ إِلَّا كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مِائَةَ أَلْفِ حَسَنَةٍ وَ حَطَّ عَنْهُ مِائَةَ أَلْفِ سَيِّئَةٍ وَ رَفَعَ لَهُ مِائَةَ أَلْفِ دَرَجَةٍ وَ كَأَنَّمَا أَعْتَقَ مِائَةَ أَلْفِ نَسَمَةٍ وَ حَشَرَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ثَلِجَ الْفُؤَادِ حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَعْقُوبَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْحَضْرَمِيِّ عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ مِثْلَهُ


1. Muĥammad ibn Ja’far Al-Razzāz Al-Kūfi narrated to me from Muĥammad ibn Ĥusain, from Al-Khashāb, from ‘Ali ibn Ĥassān, from ‘Abdil Raĥmān ibn Kuthayr, from Dāwūd Al-Raqqi, who said: (One day) when I was with Abǐ ‘Abdillāh (Imam Šādiq (a.s.)) he asked for some water. After he drank it, his eyes were filled with tears and he started to cry. Then he (the Imam (a.s.)) said to me: O Dāwūd! May Allāh’s curse be upon the killers of Ĥusain (a.s.). Verily if a slave (of Allāh) drinks water, remembering Ĥusain (a.s.) and cursing his killers, Allāh will register one hundred thousand good deeds for him. He will wipe one hundred thousand bad deeds from his (book of) deeds and will add one hundred thousand ranks to his status; and it will be as if he has freed one hundred thousand slaves. On the Day of Judgment, Allāh will resurrect him with his heart filled with peace. The above Ĥadǐth has also been narrated to me through the following chain: Muĥammad ibn Ya’qūb (Al-Kulayni), from ‘Ali ibn Muĥammad, from Sahl ibn Ziyād, from Ja’far ibn Ibrāhǐm Al-Ĥaďrami, from Sa’d ibn Sa’d.
